And here's a picture of the Heatkiller lapped. These two minor mods combined made a solid 2C load difference.


Here are some pictures showing the side panel paint process. I originally had planned to slightly alter the letters on the side panel after I painted them so that they will not be so bold, but I like the way it looks now too. I'm going to look at it like this for a while before I go ahead with it. The paint needs to cure fully before I do that anyways.



Sorry about these being a little blurry. I wanted to take in as much of the LED light as possible and that means no flash and crappy focus. I held my hand as steady as possible though.




You can see some marks between the letters. That is just tape residue. I didn't want to bother with it while the paint was still fresh. It will all come off though.



TO DO LIST:
  • Change out LED's on the fan controller
  • Change out LED's on the front bezel.
  • Mount the ASUS DVD-Rom drive back 1/4" and use drive bay blank as the face plate.
  • Finish sleeves on 12V ATX and PCI-E connectors.
  • Finish filters on side and front intakes.
  • Alter side panel paint scheme.(Still considering leaving it be as is.)
  • Apply Mod theme label on top shroud.
  • Buy Dragon Age: Origins and Borderlands
  • Enjoy
ALMOST THERE!

I added a handful more pictures in the 1st few posts just a bit ago as well. Be sure to go back and check out those updates!

HEY idk how you went about lapping your HK but after i lapped mine and posted a thread on the results someone brought this to my attention and i found out it to be true and relapped it

http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...d.php?t=221366

the key is it really doesnt need lapped at all and if your going to lap it you MUST remove the base from the whole heatsink

I was aware of that. I read that thread when my parts were in the mail. My HK came with some blemishes on the surface. Then I carelessly added a couple more minor scratches. When I lapped mine, I worked less than 20 minutes on it using an automotive sanding block made of a very firm rubber. I noticed the concave shape immediately after I started the process. This particular sanding block is used to conform to surfaces that are not quite flat. It worked perfectly by applying very little pressure to the surface of the block. All I did was remove the blemishes that were on it and with a 1000 grit paper, polish it up to a nice shine. I can assure you that it's just fine and certainly better than new, but thanks for your concern.

I got the five full spectrum LEDs in the fan controller plus another for the power LED. They have what appears to be a pastel look at all times when they all mix together; both in the 230mm fan below and in the controller. After looking at it however, it becomes a little mesmerizing. I also swapped out the hard drive activity LED out for a dimmer green LED.

Only thing I dislike is the Drive bays, they are too busy maybe you could so the same thing that you did to the fan controller and make those drive stealth that would make this build pretty much perfect IMHO
I went ahead and backset the ASUS DVD-rom drive behind one of the drive bay blanks. It actually turned out very nice, after a few hours of tinkering. Thanks B-roca! Notice the internal 8mm Bright Blue LED!

Here's a link to a video of the full spectrum lights in the fan controller. That is also the same photobucket album containing my whole mod's worth of pictures plus many I have not linked to the thread, so enjoy!

That is such a cool thing - I'd spend more time watching the LEDs color cycle on your case than using the computer itself haha
