I had a little time on my hands today after cleaning my carpets and I sat down with my calculator and previous bills from my college. If everything adds up correctly and I get the financial aid like I am supposed to, I should have a better excess than I had originally hoped for. After cost of tuition, books, online fees (imagine it costing 200$ more per class to take it online, gotta love people's excuses of bleeding a college student dry every term), then adding in the 2 grants and student loan, I should have around $600 to spend. I may have to throw some of that to my car, my wife get's a much bigger check and we gotta get the car's front end looked at, if it costs more than what she gets then I have to help out. But, if I get to spend all the cash on my computer. I have decided to forgo the ASUS M5A99FX and get the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX
But this board does not match my blue/white/black color scheme!! Got that covered! My wife has been asking me to get her a green computer. So if all goes as planned I will be modding this computer again. New mobo, RAM, Water Cooler, and resleeving the PSU, and painting the case green!
I looked at the Corsair 600T white edition and decided that if I get to paint it, all those parts that are white will be green with the black accents. I've never painted before so I will be doing tons of research for the best methods and paints to use. Then I will, of course, document the whole process with pics and videos!
To the resleeving part of the PSU.... I have tons of white paracord left and don't really feel like trying to do a color match for green. So I'll be sleeving the cords in pure white. Also be using some sort of green coolant that has the anti-microbial already in it. I will of course have to do tons of research to figure out which coolant to purchase.
I am really hoping that the finances work themselves out so I can have a project to do and have some quality mod time. But if it does not, I have seemed to figure out the random freezes on the computer and it's been working well for 2 days OCed at 3.4Ghz, I'll just replace the WC loop and have some fun with it.
