<span style="color:#FF0000;"><b>Ok, i am getting the Kandalf LCS, but would like to see what you guys have done with the inside of your super towers <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
So, could you please post pics of either your rigs, your friends rigs or rigs you found on the net that look nice inside...<br><br>
It would also be nice to see where you placed your WC components (if you are water cooled) and where you put your CCs etc etc...<br><br>
I'm sure you get the point <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
I really want my cable managment to be hot shiit, so thats why i ask <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
THANKYOU <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Big Grin"><br><br>

First of all, don't get the LCS. Get the standard Kandalf and build a custom water cooling system.

Check out Rolibar's rig showcase. He's got one of the slickest-looking Armors I've seen.

<span style="color:#FF0000;"><b>The reason i am getting the LCS is that i get it at trade price through my job. I am getting the WC that is inside (basically a Big Water) for about $14 of your US dollars <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
If you had some reviews to back up why not to get the LCS and could tell me where to get a $14 Custom WC setup that is as good as the Big Water, then i will <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
Cheers namrac, i will have a loowk <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>

Yeah, atm my cpu temp is 47 degrees idle and 55 is under full load....i have re-seated my BT LOTS of times but this is the best temp i seem to get, i have played with the AS5 amount and tightened the BT as much as i can and always run my system with the case side off....but i always have crap temps...<br><br>
I am gonna use the LCS BW to cool my CPU, which has great temps compared to what i have atm....and i am gonna use a Tidewater for my 7800GT....should look relitively neat and my temps will be better...<br><br>
I really want the inside of my case to be <span style="color:#000000;"><b>black</b></span> like robilars though, because it looks super sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> Does anyone know if he did that himself?<br><br>

An easy way to see all of our rigs... is the rig showcase that oc.net has now... Its really nice. It has lots of pictures of all different types of cases,hardware,and some people... You should check it out!<br><br>
Check mine for instance, just click the little camera icon to left of my post. It will take you directly to my pic galery.

Yeah thats the first thing i did before starting this thread....<br />
<br />
But its hard to find just Armors and Kandalfs....instead i just find myself looking through 25,000 pics of lian li cases....which i aint really too fussed about <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
SO!!!!!<br />
<br />
Did you simply use primer, the paint, the laquer????<br />
<br />
You all didn't need to actually prime for the primer by sanding?<br />
<br />
Is everything, such as the HDD screwless clips and front door, easy to remove before spraying?<br />
<br />
Cheers for the pics MR pink <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> I can't really make them out atm because its SOOOO sunny outside and i am getting reflections <img src="/images/smilies/frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" class="inlineimg" /> But i will have a loowk later <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

</div>I didn't use primer, but I should have. My paint is starting to scrape off at the "high-traffic" areas (where the door connects to the case, screw holes, where you put in the PSU). Check gobygoby's worklog in the Case Modding section, he shows just how he did it, and his turned out great.

</div>idd, but paint is always weak for getting in contact with sharp and pointy things (also scrapping of 2 sort against eachother won't do good, that's why i wait building in my rig <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Stick Out Tongue" class="inlineimg" /> )

Cheers guys...<br />
<br />
I painted my case myself and spent the time sanding, priming and using several layers of paint....<br />
<br />
Just nice to see that that isn't necessary <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /> so i can just simply prime, then paint, the laquer <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /> YAY <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
In the pics you posted (Mr Pink), is the Cooling Solution glowing like that because there are extra UV CCs in there? Or is it just the Blue LEDs that cause that glow? <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
This next system i am gonna try to go for looks over raw power....I dont want to heavily mod it...nothing of the sort actually....<br />
<br />
I am just going to manage my cables and Tubing to make the interior a pleasure to look at <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />

I am not sure what you mean by glowing? If you are talking about the board that would be the Evercool RE-VC on my NB.<br />

<font color="Blue"><b>By glowing i mean the UVesc glow that is coming from the Liquid in the tubes....<br />
<br />
See my attachment for the 'glow' that i am refering to <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
If you look very very carefully, you can see that there is actually 2 tuped of cooling solution attached to the cpu waterblock....they appear to be glowing <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Smile" class="inlineimg" /><br />
<br />
What i wanted to know was...<br />
<br />
Is the tubing glowing because there are extra UV cold cathodes in the case...or is the glow simply caused by the blue LED inside the waterblock???<br />
<br />
