    Thank you. I did not take the rivets out of the case. Just stripped it down to the bare metal case and sprayed.

    Thank you It was Rustoleum Universal gloss Spray COLOR: 245211 - Gloss Cardinal Red

    Thank you and I know, I know. I really like the corsair PSU's and the red one is only 650 watts. I was thinking of covering it up or pealing it off.

    Thank you

    You came a long way from what you started with. All your work paid off and this is an amazing rig. EPIC mod bro, great job! 9/10

    As far as the Blue on the psu: you could paint it all black, paint the label with a fine red paint, or you can get even more crazy and print a custom red decal identical to Corsair's label. haha

    Good thoughts on the PSU.

    Did you install your motherboard before or after installing the XSPC RS360 radiator? It sure looks like it would be hard to install the motherboard with your radiator installed.

    Looking at the top case image it looks you're using only 4 screws to secure the XSPC RS360 radiator to the case. Did the other holes not line up or were you just missing some screws?

    I installed the motherboard before the radiator. Yeah it would not be possible installing the RAD first.

    As for the 360 RAD, the holes do not match up as the fans are closer together on the radiatior. I do have those four screws in it along with two screws attached to the RAD under the top plastic section. I just drilled two holes to attached the RAD. The radiator is solid with zero movement at all even with the 4 screws attached to it, but I did add 2 more.

    I'm afraid to add it all up. The parts for the WC is around $800+ but well worth it. It was a really fun first liquid build for me. Not that this build will ever be finished as there will always be more fun stuff to buy.
