I'm curious as well. I can measure it myself, but it would be nice to get a rundown on some ideas and materials.

CoolerMaster Storm Scout "Stormtrooper"

Hey everyone. Today, on a whim, I decided I was going to repaint my case. This mod will be in honour of my late grandfather who passed away last month. He always loved to tinker, invent, and create. He had a shed full of industrial strength hardware, including a lathe that you could probably make just about anything in the world on! Me and my dad like to talk about the things he made for us as children. I remember when he visited and made me a metal, medieval style sword-and-shield. When my dad and uncle were that age, they played with plastic army men and tanks. My grandad once saw them, and promptly went into his shed and constructed a panzer-styled tank made completely out of metal, rolling wheels, rotating gun barrel and all! He came out, dropped it on one of the plastic tanks and said "That's not a tank, this is a tank!"

Anyway, getting to the mod. I'm calling this "The Stormtrooper" - The theme being obvious. A star wars stormtrooper. The plan is to paint mostly everything white, with some black accents (PCI brackets, power/reset/front panel buttons, DVD drive, and the PC hardware itself)

Everything in this first post has been done today!

I started by going out and selecting my paint. Also picked up some sandpaper, to lightly sand down everything, I'm hoping it will help the paint stick better. I ran out of paint and also forgot to grab any acrylic clear paint sealer, so I'll be getting everything else I need tomorrow.

700

Got straight to work disassembling the case. Not the worst thing I've ever had to do, but it took a fair while. Here she is all bare, naked, and cleaned of dust.

450

I sanded a spot and spot tested the paint where no one would ever see it, just in case something happened.

450

At that point, my desk looked like this:

450

And my bed looked like this:

450

I decided to start with the right side panel, and I have also done the front mesh grills (not pictured)

450

Continuing on with the main chassis

Well unfortunately i have retired my case temporarily so i cant give you measurements, but i can tell you that the PSU covers are not difficult to make even with limited tools.

I have made two covers for my case, one out of a sheet of steel cut and then folded by hand.
399

The other I created out of a piece of acrylic that i cut by hand and bent into shape using a heat gun.
450

Personally i would say using a thin piece of acrylic would be the easiest as that can be cut with just a ruler and a Stanley knife blade...if you don't have a heat gun you could possibly cut the cover into two sections, then glue it together at 90deg using specialist acrylic glue which can be found in model shops.

If you are careful with the acrylic not to scratch it you also have two options on how to paint it...you can either paint the top side with a plastic based paint for a matt finish. OR you can paint the underside like i did so you see the paint through the acrylic and the surface remains shiny.

One final pointer for acrylic is apply several coats of paint if you have lights on the bottom of your case..otherwise the light will shine through the paint and look bad.

looks cool so far, did you take of the drive bay clips to paint it or did you live them in situ ?

Yeah I just painted right over them, I couldn't figure out or didn't have the tools to properly remove them. I would have preferred to leave them unpainted, though.

I was thinking about doing the same thing about 30 minutes ago, actually. Happen to have 4 cans of white primer sitting on a shelf. Was thinking of leaving the inside black with white accents, and leaving the front mesh black. I decided against it as I want to do something with some color to it, so I might still do most of it matte white, and do red or blue accents. I'm also thinking about getting a panel without a window since my hardware isn't all that impressive to begin with.

Any suggestions on a color to go with the white and black?

I'm not sure, but I'm going for all white internally, as I have a black/red motherboard, and green led fans, so it should be quite the light show!

I'll have to look for my measurements and will post them later, the HDD caover can be made from just about anything, I've seen everything from cardboard to acrylic to metal, to pictures. Maybe I can make a how to.

I have used CF wrap on covers too, and have seen others use cardboard from boxes their parts came in. If you use polycarbonate, Lexan, you can bend it without the use of a heat gun but it does bend easier with a heat gun. Make sure you heat it very slow or it will get bubbles, it took me about 15 mins to heat it to the point it would bent.
