Goood afternoon my fellow PC nuts and Luder lovers!
First, let’s get some love for a bath for #AcidDragon as she sits in the driveway
Now that we know what we are working towards….. Let’s start changing this Thermaltake Commander C34 case!
First let’s get this front panel off by using a gentle prying motion with a flat screwdriver to release the 4 clips
Those 200mm of RGB goodness (Thermaltake included front intake fans)
Now we can get the grills removed and get them painted green to match the grill on #AcidDragon
A tip for painting outside, cover with a clear tub/container to prevent dust, leaves, bugs and anything else floating around while the paint dries
Always several super light coats for the win!
While I waited for the paint to cure, I began unboxing hardware and getting it installed to test fit and prep the system to plan out our loop and placement of the “turbo” pump.
Starting with this sexy EVGA Z390 FTW motherboard…and fitting the Thermaltake Pacific CPU cooler to it
Next up our 120GB TeamGroup SSD!
Finally, let’s install this Thermaltake ToughPower 850W PSU! A bit overpowered for this build’s purpose…. But so is the watercooling haha
The paint hasn’t fully cured, but now is dry and can be installed back in place! The case is looking sexy so far!
Hopefully I will have time to get some more work this Friday and have another update for you next week!!!
Stay classy fellow modders and friends!!!
