Its also a nice color of green, looked really light on the bottle, but once i used the paint, it turned out really nice. Sorry for no pics, need to go see if i can find a mem card laying around my house that i can throw in the droid x since my usb cable for my camera is missing too. Sorry if i rambled, just got back from a brewfest and am also sick so drinking didnt help that...
Glad to hear you got some paint applied. When using primer fillers it really needs to be sanded before paint to provided a bonding surface for the paint. If surfaces is smooth there is no reason to use a primer filler, just go with a non-sanding primer sealer it goes on smooth and provides excellent inter-coat adhesion and of course doesn't need sanding.
Just a suggestion to put in your library.

Those two have probably forgotten more about PSU's than 90% of the rest of OCN's members will ever learn.

And check out the Recommended PSU list. If you stick with something on that list you will be less likely to have problems.
I read it was HEC, but I thought that was on the list of acceptable brands. Or....is Cougar just their lower end brand? Gotta admit, the looks of the thing and the lion motif was screaming 'Get it! GET IT!!!' in my ear, but I held off and fielded my question here. Thanks for talking me down. The reason I keep putting off buying a modular PSU is BECAUSE I KNOW my current PSU is perfectly good. A new one is not really necessary. I just keep dreaming of less cable clutter.

I don't know specifically which modular PSU's to recommend as I avoid them. Nothing really against them from a functional aspect, I just don't see the need for a fully modular psu since one is always going to be using the 24pin and 8 pin cables anyway.

I still recommend posting in the PSU Forum here and seeing what Tator Tot and Phaedrus say or find one from that Recommended List. There are just too many people here on OCN (and every other forum on the interwebs) that don't know their you know what from a hole in the ground when it comes to power supplies recommending cheap quality junk psu's that are nothing more than time bombs waiting to go off.

Silverstone ST850

Is a good modular PSU, I think one by thermaltake (toughpower?) is also a similar price point and silverstone makes a 750 model of that as well.

For his build he doesn't need anything bigger than a good 400 to 450watt PSU. Getting either of those would be a huge waste of money. His current EA650 is overkill for his needs. I can run my Sig Rig off of my EarthWatts 430 from my backup system and not push it that hard, and I have 5 more hard drives and dual vid cards compared to his rig.

Hey guys, some of you probably remember my build with tri-5850's (see below, first pic). I've updated the rig, kind of a side-grade really, but I'm very pleased with it.

New hardware:
Asus CHIV Formula
1090t @ 4GHz, NB @ 3GHz
RAM is now at 1800MHz 7-7-7-20-1t
VisionTek 6970 Reference (flashed with Asus voltage tweak bios)

On the way:
Asus Xonar Xense sound card and Sennheiser PC350's.

And yes, that 6970 barely squeezed in!

Before:


Now:









Whadaya guys think?
