mATX 1366 i7 950 / GTX 560 Build Log - Page 3

post #21 of 42
Rather than start a new thread (and I apologize for thread jacking)...

But is it Methylated Spirits that you are using to get rid of the coating on the interior before putting the primer on?

I have attempted to paint some cases in the past, and have never done this. I have simply used a couple of cans of etch primer and then Enamel Paint. Then a few coats of Clear over that... but the paint always rubs off.

Suggestions please?

Its wax and grease remover. This one http://www.recochem.com.au/index.php...grease_remover

you have to roughen the surface up with 100 grit or something too for the paint to stick

Another Quick update

Finally the H60 was shipped out from amazon after 3 weeks... So it should be at the package forwarder by monday where it will ship internationally hopefully by tuesday and arrive a week later. Sorry for the wait, i'm sure some of you thought it was never going to be done haha. Just to let you know something is happening.

100%, cant fit about the mobo because the north bridge heat sink is in the way and the mounting for cpu heatsink is also in the way. The rear fan is 80mm so cant mount it there, even with a convertor unless the convertor was a jared otherwise i wouldn't be able to get the side door on. The bottom front fan is to far from the cpu and wil not reach if the gpu was installed. the top is blocked by the second 5inchbay, so im thinking of cutting out some metal from it.

Update 27/4/2011


The rest of the components arrived today from america so i can finally start my build. Although there was one issue along the way were i couldn't mount the h60 without case mods, I think i might have to dremel some of the 5inch bay out, but i won't be using it so it doesn't really matter.



Old case stripped of components. SDD, Gpu, power supply, blu ray drive and hdd.












Parts arrived.



New components group shot.






The Array










Stopped here because the H60 wouldn't fit in the case .
