Red Queen v2 Rebuild Thread

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
SO as I'm waiting for my parts to come in though it would a good time to do some work to the case. The Case is a Thermaltake v9 Black Edition.

First thing I gutted the case of all trim, plastics Fans and hardware:


so I decided that a red interior on the case would look alot cooler than the Black so I taped it off an painted it

but for some reason my camera is acting up on my phone so I only have a pic of the end result:



for some reason the Red came out a lot more red in the pics than it really is it is more of a dark metallic Cherry red than the red that is showing in the pic

probably nothing much, really don't have the time to be hacking my case atm, but I do plan down the road to cut open my side door and do a Lexan insert.

Ok here's the promised Pics:

Case after parts put back in:


Benchtesting the New Motherboard, Memory and CPU:


Everything installed, Noctua faced the right way for air flow with case fans ( I really need to work on my cable management )



Final shot all closed up, with 240mm Fan removed off of door (Would not fit with Noctua Installed):
