Here's few pics to give ya the ideas... biggrin.gif


I had great service ordering direct from CaseLabs, shipped to the Vancouver area. The only hassle are the Canada Customs morons, but that's unavoidable regardless.
I normally wouldn't recommend buying it from Frozen, but with the custom paint you want, you may have to. Certainly won't hurt to ask though.

Never hurts to give them a shout about custom powdercoating. The worst that will happen is they'll say no. They definitely won't do two-coat or translucent powdercoats though, mainly because it's so difficult to get thoroughly consistent results on each part (you get minor colour variation from part to part)

Great thing is that one of their suppliers for powder is Prismatic Powders, and they'll send up to 5 free colour samplers. They'll also even ship those samplers to other countries, at no charge - both myself and my husband have picked up samplers from Prismatic and are now saving up to not only get the cases we want, but also to pick up a few extra pieces to take into a local shop to get a two-tone powder sprayed on ^_^

Nope. You can't use the FCPU code on cases either.

Just to chime in about custom powder coating. Yes, definitely send an email to KC@caselabs.net and he can get you a quote. Most of the time it is something we can do, but there are a few exceptions being mostly two coat applications.

Order direct from CaseLabs! They have excellent CS and it is not as expensive!

It's impossible to describe how well they treat every single order! thumb.gif

CaesLabs puts forth the Extra effort to be the best, I've never had that level service from any other computer parts manufacturer or supplier!!!

Back online!

A word of caution to everyone, learn a lesson from me!

So, this weekend I was owning faces on BF4 in the little freetime I had. When all of sudden, my graphics were just AWFUL. Framerate dropped to about 1FPS.... I looked in the window of my rig and lo and behold, no water in my reservoir.

I shut down and opened the case up. Sure enough, there was water leaking from a tube and the pump wasn't running (burned out). Mind you, this build is nearly 2 years old. However, after dismantling and trying a new (well, my old D5 pump, different than the DCP 4 I was using) I was just not getting any flow back into the reservoir.

Turns out, after pulling the CPU block, it was gunked up. NOTHING was getting through to the other side.

Why? Well, when I originally built this system, it was sponsored and used premade coolant (with ehtylene glycol) About 3 months after I built it, I noticed algae buildup on the reservoir, which I had to scrap the reservoir. So, not only does that premade ehtylene glycol crap NOT do anything to algae, it smells, it sucks for the environment, just all around bad stuff. I thought I was in the clear using distilled and PTnuke after draining and cleaning, and I was, for almost 2 years.

Wrong again. Long story short, the left over algae from somewhere in the loop got pushed over time into the CPU block, causing buildup and pump burnout.

NEVER, EVER, EVER use Ethylene Glycol based coolants!

I've got her back up and running now, but what a mess. And she's ghetto rigged to run.

HA HA - Ethylene Glycol is what's used to combat constipation! It produces healthy algea to make you go...

Polyethylene and Ethylene are two different things. Ethylene glycol would kill you if you ingested it.
