Hello,

How do I best prep my radiators before painting? I have used P240 sandpaper on the factory paint, just a little.

How do I best clean them? smile.gif

I actually remember that.

It was in one of his red mist build for his friend smile.gif the white 900D with red water cooling. He wanted glass, but fittings didn't match, so they chose PETG instead. And it was some kind of car polish he used to make it shine more. Not sure if I believe it though, only using acrylic anyway.

He said he uses PlastX by Meguiars, usually used for headlight restoration/maintenance.

I sold my first build on ebay. Didn't get near what I wanted for it, but it at least covered the watercooling costs and allowed me to start working on the green lantern build.

Hey thanks for the reply! Just to be perfectly clear, what are the pin-outs from the molex to the 6-pin PCIe?

I'm not sure I understand. I didn't use a special pin out or convert a 6-pin to molex, I just plugged in a spare molex lead from the PSU to the motherboard.

Story that maybe helps others or maybe I'm just that naive

So after a long build side project on my lil htpc bullet bh4 I was taking final pics and a darkside 4 inch led unstuck from the double sided tape fell hit mobo tray and then hit underside of my Evga stinger z97 mobo and that was it computer shut off and wouldn't start up.

So after a long road of trouble shooting pulling the entire thing apart I rmad the Evga board because the board wouldn't even show lights or codes, nothing, bought new psu same thing. Ended up being both the Cpu 4690k and board that got fried.

Guess be careful with led lights Musta hit just perfect ! Either way out of pocket I had to buy a new 4690k and cut my losses it's back together and am really liking the Mayhems white pastel died a light grey

You can use alot of things to clean before paint . as long as you sanded and made the surface abrasive that you are going to paint , Clean with rubbing alcohol , or my favorite break cleaner . drys fast and cleans really well . just dont get any on anything that has paint you do like . it will break it down . then hit it with wax and grease remover, tac cloth , then paint . If you need any other details , just message me man . thumb.gif
