I thought I would post a build log for my new case I just bought. I bought a old server case to replace my modded CM Stacker 810 because, the stacker was just too heavy and big. I plan to mod the heck out of this case, so I hope you guys like it =P

The Hardware

* XFX 780i
* Q6600
* 2x 8800GT
* 2x 2gb OCZ Platinum Reversion 2
* Corsair 750w psu
* 500gb Seagate, 320gb WD, 160 seagate

Watercooling

* D-tek v1 waterblock
* 2x D5 pumps with nozzle mod
* 360 GTX radiator
* 240 GTS radiator
* 2x Swiftech MCW60

Plans

*Fit a 360GTX radiator diagonally at the top
*Mount a 240GTS radiator vertically on the right side above the mobo tray
*Paint the case flat black
*door window mod and ventilation
*Fit a fan controller between top rad and psu
*add 80mm fan on back wall
*add 120mm fan on the floor
*New power button

I love uv stuff, but for this I was thinking more sleek and simple maybe a flat black with white and red lights or something like that, but thanks for the advice

I got a lot done today
I pretty much finished all the case work that needed to be done. The only things that I have left to do is paint, lazer cut the window, and drill holes for handles when they arrive.

Now for pics

Day 3




These are custom mounts for my zalman fan controller.

I ran out of drive bays XD but I think it looks awesome with a psu and everything in











The fan on the left still needs some work done to it.

And thats all for today folks

Sorry for the long wait.

I decided what color scheme I wanted to go with, I decided to go with a white, orange and black
Anyways heres some pics





Putting on the primer.


I went with a flat black and it looks amazing. The last time I did a gloss and dust and fingerprints were everywhere.








More packages should be coming later this week =)

I used 1 very thick coat of primer and one thin coat of primer and 2 coats of flat black. Thats strange that it would flake off? Maybe the paints bad or something?

Thats not a bad idea, I might when I have more money to spend lol
