Parts list: [~$600 v4.6]

(thanks to everyone who helped me hammer out this parts list here)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822145304 HDD
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131402R MOBO
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.585954 PSU and CASE
http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.589634 CPU and GPU

Subtotal: $609.93
Grand Total: $621.55
$583.55 after MIR

Planning on this being my first serious work log (to any who have seen my others, they are rather sca tterbr ain ed =p )

Planned modifications:

Black interior
Mirrored side window with 140 mm fan, black grill
Further cable management abilities

Mod stuff (already have spray paint and primer) should cost ~40 hopefully, we all know how that goes.

The 912 case panel is pretty complex, and i want to keep some of the features, so i will be baking it with the mirrored panel for 10 minutes at 300 degrees to get it to conform to the edges i am applying it to then install the edging, and use http://www.mnpctech.com/scotch_4010_tape_of_the_casemod_gods.html to apply the window.

Found my OCN brushed appliques- to leave the .net or to not leave the .net?

In light of recent research, I'll be heatgunning the acrylic panel to get it to conform to the bends in the case panel instead of baking at 300 degrees due to possible adverse effects on the paint.

Here's what the tinting looks like:

using 1/8" acrylic- planning for 2 120mm fan ports.

Bought 1 can of primer, 2 cans of flat black. Going back after restock of primer- still need sandpaper, getting ~400 grit.

Fan led wires will be run with phone cables (4 wires, small, easy to work with) the pcb will have several phone chord connectors which will run said chords to splitters

Ordered a TON of misc parts- bought 24 point junction and 10 feet of shrink wrap at Altex.

So far the plan is to trim down the 12 or 5v line to 3.4, and then trim -that- to change the color. like such:
