Hey man, awesome log. Really diggin' it. For that AP-15 I sent you, you should paint it red or white to go with your theme. Not too hard if you buy Krylon Fusion. Follow this guide.. I'm going to do it for mine pretty soon.

Definitely gonna' consider it in the future, as of right now I just want to get this bad boy assembled and fired up! I'll order some of the Krylon Fusion off of Amazon and have it ready just in case!

Don't want to keep anyone waiting so here is the whole deal;

I found AP-15's from a couple people and ordered 10 total (one didn't make it so there are only nine in this picture but I have ten lol). Sleeved them all, and ready to go!

I also removed one RX360 radiator and replaced it with an RX480 radiator, I plan on doing some nice cutting to the top of the case so I can mount that bad boy up top!
