I just had a thought about what to use to finish my scout with... Its a finish called Dura-Coat. Its used to camo finish firearms and other stuff. Its supposed to be extremely tough. Not sure how much woudl be needed to finish a Scout case though.... (Just a thought I had.)

Dkev.....

Get 2 cans of that METALCAST Anodized Surface color System paint that lets the metal shine through it. Run a few coats of that over the top of what you have already without sanding. Use the Metallic Blue. You will love the results. Look at this as a base coat now.

Paint the first coat really light like your making a Tack Coat.

Then wait 15 mins.

Use a hair dryer to heat the surface you will be painting and make sure you shake the can well and heat the can by running extremely hot water over the can for a few minutes then shake it some more. Before you paint run your very dry hand over the surface to take off any hair or dirt that has fell on it.

Then spray it on thick. Like 3 passes per strip at 10 inches from the case metal. Then immediatly run your hair drier over it and heat the newly painted surface. This is mostly a humidity inhibitor.

then wait 30 minutes

Spray it once more letting your last few sprays be farther away to even the finish out. You will love the results.

Of course a week later use paint cleaner on it and then wax it with a really good wax. it will be like new money.

All you need now is the PUNCH. You got the base going good.

Ok, I'm working on this new beastie and in the long run it will be Mindys system, I'll have a sign on though. Right now I'm using a P4 3.0Ghz until they get my SSD drive in and finish my re-build, then the 2 days for shipping it back.
I've already put Win7 Pro on the new machine. I've only got a license for 3 machines using Norton Anti-Vir. So the super computer, Min's laptop and this P-4 equals 3. If I install it on the new machine, they're going to see it and tell me to buy another copy of the program.

The question, not just for the anti-virus license but also for the sake of speeding up work and transfers. Would you take out the drive on the Ol P4 and put it in the new machine, transferring licenses and data that way. Or keep the new Scout fresh and install everything new??? Wish I would have thought of this before I spent the bucks on a new copy of Win7.

I'll check back in a few hours to see if anyone is here.
Forget norton its a resource hog anyway. Get Avira free edition or AVG Free Edition from Filehippo.com

My Scout, CM-690 and "Spare parts" cases don't collect near as much dust as this NZXT case.

See attached photos... The NZXT case does look good all lit up though... What do you think?
Your problem is the clear plastic it statcally charged. Clean it with dawn dishwashing liquid and water. ONE SPoon of dawn and the rest water in a spray bottle and clean both sides. That should help alot.

I will give it a shot the next time that i have the side panel off.

Other than the dusty window, I like the way the case looks from the side. Front panel is going to take a little getting used to on the NZXT case. I'm really liking the LED's over cold cathodes for case lighting. Enigma, you saw how the red lighting turned out in my Scout case... I like the White lighting in the NZXT case a little better. Just need to get rid of that blue led fan in the window.

Ok but what will this do to the appearance beyond what it looks like now? Will it give it a glossy appearance? I would rather it not be too glossy. And can I use the stuff you recommend on the bezel?

You don't need to use a glossy clear coat. You can get other clear coats in semi-gloss and flat.

So I'll get a couple Xigi white LED 140s for the front and use two Gelick white 120s on the window. I post some more pics when it's done. It's a metallic blue. It's sparkly. I'm pleased with the results, considering I am not the painter Enigma is.

Being quite partial to blue myself. Sweeeet, can't wait to see the finihsed product.

Absolutely, I don't care at all what it looks like, I mean you can't even see it up there. I just want a heat pump blasting upwards.

Kev, what have you been doing, scouring the sites for the right fans for your new build? What ever it is, I'm glad as this is about the (wrote 3rd first then remembered what you sent) 4th time I'll benefit from your research. Thanks
