Sorry for the late response, lol. Those panels are 'Smoke'... I'm pretty sure that their black option is totally opaque.

I plan on touching this box up, soon.

Sorry for bumping such an old thread. I'm planning an SFF SB build, so I figured I would clean my X58 up and give it a little love before it goes to a new home.

Replacement Xigmatek fans, this time with black sleeving.


Some right angle SATA cables should leave room to install a front panel of black metal mesh.


How it looks now, before the additions.. getting a bit dusty! lol.


I upgraded my GTX 260 to a GTX 460 768 about a month back. I got it on sale for $90 after MIR, so hey.


I'll post after pictures later on. Maybe tomorrow at some point. I'm going to adjust the heatsink just a bit, and I need to remove the motherboard in order to punch some holes out of the I/O panel that I neglected to do a year ago. Hah.

*tumbleweed*

The finishing touches are in sight! I replaced my 850-TX with a 1,200W Mushkin Joule PSU. =)




Installed... a bit cleaner now!






And I'm working on this cover thing for the bottom half of the case. Cut out the metal mesh and solid strips for stability.


Using J-B Weld epoxy on the back of the strips to attach them to the mesh.


Covering the gaps between strips.


Next I'll sand it all until everything is flush and even and spraypaint the whole thing black again. I'm not sure how I will attach it to the case just yet. Depending on how this turns out I may or may not use it, but I think it will work.
