[Official] Cooler Master ATCS 840 Owners Club - Page 334

post #3331 of 4392
Hi guys, for anyone who painted their ATCS, approx. how many cans of primer, paint, and clear coat did you use?

Also, will I need a rivet gun to put the case back together, or can I just use some small bolts? I read somewhere that the atcs only has 8 rivets needed to be removed, is that true?

I used 3 cans of self etching primer and 3 cans of matte black paint.
I also used rivits to reassemble, I guess you could use screws but rivits are quicker and easier.

If you wanted to a good clean job you will need to break the entire case down and there are definately more than 8 rivits to remove. Its really simple to put back together tho.

If I was going to paint another case again, I would use a powder coater, costs about the same when you factor in the cost of the paint etc.

I've had this case / build for a couple of years and just got around to my first over
clock after adding a CPU water cooler in an effort to fix a missing Ram problem.
Anyway seeing what you guys have done with this case is incredible and inspiring.
I can't wait to put together some plan for a larger cooling loop to get a better overclock
than what I'm at now....this thread couldn't be any better for that!

Nils from MDPC-X has some countersunk black rivets, which you will need for the top piece. Of course, there are always workarounds. A Chinese-made pop rivet tool is very inexpensive.

I did only 2 coats of matte black on the frame, which took one can. No primer. Shooting paint is an art form, and there are so many variables like temperature, humidity, paint formulation... Best get some practice. You can always sand it down a bit and try again.

Like it was said above, if I could do it over I would have it powder coated. I did not know what my resources were here, so I went with the paint. If you do decide to go with a powder coat, do your homework- I've seen some expensive, botched jobs out there. Modders demand perfection that industrial finishers may not expect...

I probably have the most unassuming-looking ATCS 840 on here tongue.gif. I still love the case to death. Just installed the P6T Deluxe/OC Palm and did some quick cable management. I don't think I'll ever get rid of this big lovable aluminum beast smile.gif.

I also love how small my V8 always looks in here.

Nice socks, mate!!
Nice set-up, though.
Love the two different routings of the PCI-e cables...

Need some help ...

So i'm using a push/pull fan configuration in each of the radiators ... i was doing setting the bottom radiator for intake and the top for exhaust ...

Plus, 1 x 180mm Air penetrator fan on the front and the rear 120mm ...

Do you think that it would be better to leave both radiators as intake?

The 180 air penetrator fan is very strong and will send the air directly to the rear fan ... so it would help sending the hot air to the rear fan ...

give me your thoughts here smile.gif
