It's not perfect; there are some minor issues like the blues not quite matching, hardware quirks, and it's a bit louder than I'd hoped. On the whole I'm pleased with the outcome. Thanks for watching. smile.gif

don't get me wrong, thats beautiful man. it really is... but IMHO the exterior paint job and the window you cut ruin the whole 1337 thing.

I mean, I'd rather walk around with a machine that looks like an old 300. not something that looks like it has something on the inside. what you've done is taken the wolf in sheeps clothing idea to far and put racing strips on your sheep frown.gif

tut tut

(amazing work though, really!)

No doubt you have done a wonderful job.
Though I must agree, I don't really like the blue. But that's my personal opinion.
But I can't deny the work that has been done. It looks amazing neither the less.
Just gives me more inspiration to work on the ones I have in my closet.

The thing is, I wasn't going for an understated look. And in my opinion the 3000 isn't a bad looking case like many old cases, and colors work well on it. To each their own, though. Thanks for the input. smile.gif

Thanks. It seems to me like pretty much any color of powder coating looks fantastic, blue and white included. The spray painted plastic front panel doesn't really give the same effect, and the mismatched hardware doesn't help... Anyway, thanks for your participation and good luck if you decide to mod your cases. thumb.gif

Definitely. I hauled it outside earlier and shot some pictures, so some of those should be up tonight. The best part is I was reassured that I did a great job with the case; the interior especially looks fantastic if I may say so. However, I might have to pick up a better AM3 board that 1) matches the color scheme and 2) actually works. This Biostar isn't exactly reliable... hmmsmiley02.gif

Anyway, more to come. Stay tuned. cheers.gif
