What you guys reckon?

Edit: Painted dvd drive tray, and my old 4870. Looks awesome, thinking about making a build log because its gonna be a pretty extensive build eventually.

Build logs are nice biggrin.gif

fantastic job! You just saved a Vulcan case from being sold smile.gif I'll keep it and try to paint it as well. Was it hard? What were the preparations? And the paint?

if you are going to do any real painting job, you should always remove any old paint from the surface you are going to attempt to paint. This usually means, but is not limited to sanding, washing, then doing a quick resand to make sure you are on bare metal, and that the surface is ready to accept paint under the directions of the paint can itself.

and it looks like he also took the whole thing part as far as it would go and painted it piece by piece then reassembled. The smart way to paint anything.

Thank you, for explaining. I didn't do the paint job, I had it powdercoated.

Please tell me if you know of course - how was the front panel powdercoated - I thought that the pieces are first pre-warmed up to some quite serious temperatures and the front panel is plastic confused.gif Or is there some other way to do it?

I went with the Antec Kuhler H20 620. It's a perfect fit for the case and I managed to overlock my Core i7 950 to 4GHz and idles at 45C and Max at 85C on full load.

It may be a little over your budget but it's well worth the extra price.

Look for my post on this thread on how I fit it.

I got my Vulcan yesterday and placed it together. Just wondering how people got their Cooler Masters Hyper 212 plus to face vertical pushing air to the end of the case's exhaust fan?
