thanks eno, I thought about it at one time, and decided to leave the HAF alone. I thought the yellow would be to much at that point. Plus I would've screwed it up probably.

Small update of some components I had arrive. Hoping for another delivery tomorrow which means I need to start hustling alittle on the interior.


Some parts arrived. Even though I planned to recycle my older components, I decided that I would upgrade some components and reuse a few pieces that I can't afford guite yet. After some time of saving up for some parts, I decided to try to get as much as I could. So I kept an eye out for deals and get them when the price where good.




As you can see, new motherboard.




Not the high end, but for my purpuses for the build, I think it will be good until I pass it down to my wife in my hand me down computer upgrades. Kids being last, and depending on the schoolwork and behavior who gets what.




Some DDR3 1600 memory.




Both together.




Sorry crappy pic, the flash is out of my control. Well at least you can see what it is. The new and first SSD that Im going to use as my boot drive.

I'm a little surprised you didn't get the Mushkin Yellow Reactor RAM. The ones you got are awesome though. I ran those before moving into my board and after I sold my Dominators.

I was seriously looking at the Corsair Vengeance, but the cost of GSkill was about 40% cheaper when I bought them on sale.

I test fitted the motherboard that arrived. My camera does not like me, as there is no way to turn off the flash since the lcd screen is broke. So please bear with me on some of these pictures.

I wish I would have planned ahead, but most that has been done has been an afterthought. Being my first mod, I did not make any cuts before painting, so every time I do something I need to correct my errors as I go.




I decided I needed some more wire management holes, as I did not the wires to be seen to much. So I laid out where I wanted to cut.




I'm going to be making three more hole for this.




Found where I wanted to drill, and used my center punch. This punch is much easier then my old ones, no extra tool needed. I would've ended smashing something if I needed a hammer.




Drilled out the holes.




Then cut out with my rotary tool.




Filed it down, and the cutting left some heat marks,




Cant really tell from a distance, so I figured I would try the easy way first hoping it surface scuff.




Busted out the rubbing compound and wax and hoped for the best.




By this time it was after dinner, and past sunset so I had to rely on a single lamp for light.




I put my molding on.




Here to.




Then filled it with a foam backing. I knew by now I was screwed. It looked like crap to me and I couldn't have it.




I knew I was going to have to redo it the next day, so I decided I wanted to see how the bottom would come out. With the lip on the hole, I could not keep the molding looking good. So at least I knew what I needed to do the next day.




Stripped out the bottom grommet. You can't see the mess from a distance, but my head is going to be in that case...so enough said.




Preparing to cut the lip off.




I actually got an action shot for you all....one handed cutting




Test fit my molding. Which fit much better. I now know that if there is a hole there, don't think you won't have to do any work to it. Live and learn.




Looks kind of rough, but once I put the trim and foam on it will not be seen.




Now to fix I late night mistakes. A little painting. Yea, I cheating and only doing the one spot.




I came out lighter than the rest, but I'm not done yet. I will fix my mistakes.




Gave it a nice wet sand. I forgot to take a picture, but I did a very light coat of clear then another light sand.




Then onto the rubbing compound...again.




Then the wax...again.




Much better.




A closer look at the repair.




Also the bottom wire management hole looks much cleaner to me. The molding sits much better without the lip, as it should.




A view of all of them.




Test fitting the motherboard again.




Looks much better.




A larger view to see.




You can see all wire management holes. I am happy with the way the fix came out. Just wish I thought ahead. But hindsight is great. Lost a couple days because my impatience on my build, luckily I still have two weeks left. Still have components coming, and still to tear some out of my current rig. But I am happy with the way it is turning out. Mistakes and all.

Hope you enjoy.

Pretty nice fix. I never worry about papering if I'm only spraying on the MoBo tray. Even though I probably should. If I'm spraying more than that everything gets papered and taped.
