White Precision (CM Sniper Build)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello all Ive been lurking around on the forums quite a bit getting ideas, following a few builds and enjoying some of the great info this forum has to offer. I recently have purchased a Cooler Master Sniper Black Edition.
Having the computer together for roughly a month now I look upon it and realize it is just a generic out of the box case (much like my last setup) I have decided it's time for something different!

Warning: This is a first real computer mod attempt.





Ah Nice and stock, I enjoy the look of this case but after watching a few of the old Star Wars movies I came up with an idea, Storm Troopers...


The mission was on....




After running to the hardware store and trying to come up with what kind of white to paint the case, my girlfriend suggested I used satin white instead of just a basic gloss or primer color.



Although I was skeptical on this choice we went with the satin. With our dismay returning from the store wisconsin decided to bless us with a few nice wet inches of snow!

Again my plans were delayed, or so I thought. Again my girlfriend came up with the idea of using her schools spray booth, another great save! Quickly she called up her art professor to see when we could come in and use the booth. After getting a open slot for the spray booth I had a few hours to kill, time to work on the changing out the leds in the stock fans of the sniper.





I got two of the fans finished by the time we could use the booth, we were set for the next step!

Getting into the art room it seems we had a guest willing to lend us a hand in the project.

Lol

After a bit of fighting and confused looks I could not get the fan controller / usb area off the top panel of the case, so having to resort to a bit of painters tape and an exacto knife we were in business.


Slowly getting the paint layed down in a few nice coats so it wouldn't run, it slowly started to come together!

Getting most of the painting finished in the next hour or so we had to start closing up shop. Removing most of the tape and attempting to clean up as much of the mistakes I had made, most of it turned out great!


(Yes i got the bit of filter off and cleaned up the ends )












(Sorry about the shadow)

I got most of the computer put back together and I need to get a few more white leds. It seems my cats decided it would be fun to run and hide them in the apartment....




I decided to leave the sniper tag on the front and go over it a bit to make it blend in with the paint, maybe this will be removed later...

Besides the current paint theme (which I have a few little things I am thinking of adding) I need to work on the cable management on the inside, finish the third fans leds, work a bit on airflow... hmm, not to shure what else to do at the moment.

Any ideas?

All I gotta say is "good job"!

I love the way it came out.

Looks really good, the only thing that would add to it is take out the fan with the blue LED...but your already planning on doing that. Excellent work.

You own me a new pair of jeans!

But you should've sand it before painting it.

Nice job anyway! +rep!
