Well, so much for that idea. I began modding this old beat up old case in the hopes of making it better than what it was, and in the process turned it into an even uglier and more beat up looking piece of junk. The interior came out looking good with the black paint and new cable management holes, but the rest was horrible. The red Fusion plastic paint I used was a crappy color for a computer case and ended up dripping in like 5 spots, even with the lightest coat of paint I have ever laid down. If it wasn't fit to be in my living room before, then it certainly wasn't going to be welcome now.
I ended up just tossing the whole thing in the trash and ordering myself a Cooler Master Storm Scout from Newegg. I had a good run with the 900. It had seen 3 different full systems come and go.
Now I can't wait for my new case to arrive. I have done a customer's build using a Storm Scout before so I know what I am getting into. I promise I won't destroy this one by trying to mod it.
