Project: "Starlight'' Lian Li V2000 Mod

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. first and foremost, i got my v2000 case earlier today and will start planning for a mod. No idea what to do first, but there's some normal wear and tear on the case so maybe ill paint it.

Might be a problem since i live in an apartment and no room.

Pics will come from my iphone 2g, might be getting a better camera phone later, no cameras =(, i know, it'll kinda destroy the looks of this case, but cant be spending so much money as a college student!

I shall reserve a ton of posts.

Parts List ( Current ):

RX 360 Rad
Rs240 and Rs360 ( not sure which to use )
XSPC Rasa
Laing DDC2 with XSPC Restop
Black Primochill 1/2id, 3/4OD tubing


i7 2600k
GTX 470 with MCW 60 wb
Asus P8P67 Pro Mobo
Mushkin Ridgebacks 6-8-6-24
Xonar DX
Gtx 460 768MB version

Planned:
EK Supreme HF Nickel
Bunch of Angled compression fittings

First impressions-

Out of the huge box full of peanuts


Took me awhile to figure out how to take the side panels off



A bit dusty. Have to remove drive cages. This case was used previously as a drive server



Maybe painting it won't be a bad ideal



BAH! more damage under the covers



Gotta keep the screws in a safe location!



Hard to tell where this came from, but this is under the midplate. looks nasty =(



I hate this texture so much. Makes me cringe for some reason



Test fitting rad placements.



Oh and case came with this. The guy was too lazy to uninstall it.

I love these cases. Mine is sitting happily in the box all powdercoated and ready to go once I get hardware for it.
