    My new ANTEC 900 w/custom paint-- new pix!

    OK guys .. alot of you know im building a new PC here for my main rig. I just sold my rig for a decent price tag so i have some goodies to show off. First off I painted my 900 blood red interior and all the mesh the same.
    I chose that color cuz my mobo is the ASUS maximus II formula and it is black with red accents. The EVGA GTX im getting is black and red also.. and my CORSAIR HX620 is black and red. I bought the coolermaster V8 that is black with red LEDz... :toast:

    I dont have the mobo, the 260, the psu and the V8. All of those items will be here no later than friday. When my stuff gets in, i will post more up-to-date pics of the new rig in all its glory. For now, enjoy these pics of the newly painted case. Hope yall like it as much as I do!:rockout:

    keep note I will be cuttin a few holes in the back for cable management and all the holes will have a rubber grommet on them just for added eye candy and so i dont cut myself/wires!

    EDIT: the inside of the side panels will be black.

    Yes, and so far I noticed the 900 is by far the easiest to take apart. I had the whole case stripped down to the bare metal frame in like 10min.

    Well I have everything here at the house for the build cept for the RAM, the GTX 260, and my Coolermaster V8. Those three items will be in tomorrow by the time I come in from work. I will start the build process asap. Im going to hang with the kids for a bit and when they go to bed I will start the build.(family first!) I went on ahead and installed the DVD drive and HDD's along with the CORSAIR HX620. And damn that PSU looks good with the red interior.. really complements my paint job :D

    Thanks guys for following the build process with me. Im really excited this time around. Im actually building a bad ass PC for myself. I have done plenty in the past .. but its different when its yours. Im about to test the mobo in a few. I have to use the ram and my VGA from this rig to test... but hey.. I rather test it now and know whats up, instead of installing it tomorrow and have my board fail.. ya know ;)

    Nice work, a tip on cable management, I find routing the CPU 4/8-Pin power cable up the back of the board at the front of the PCI/PCI-e slots, continuing next to the inside of the IO panel, the vid card keeps it retained, but does not cut into it, and it looks a lot better than stretching over the vid card. You might already know that, but it worked great in a few Antec 900 and 300 builds I've been responsible for over the last year. I've been tossing around painting the inside fo my case, I keep putting it off, then seeing projects like this makes me want to get it going! Again nice work!

    Dude that case is the Shaman of Sexy, I really like it. Good job and cant wait to see what else there is in store. Is that the re-release of the 900? I dont remember mine having them water tubing holes in it. Ill have to go down to my grandmas and check and see if it does :)

    the first series of the 900 did not have water holes, the second series did, then came the third with water holes and wire management. Now we have the 900 2.

    Nice paint work, really looking forward to filled images.

    OK everything is installed! System is up nd running, everything is working flawlessly! I did a little sidepanel mod, i removed the fan holder/extra piece of acrylic so that it is only the mesh.. i have no need for a fan there. Pictures are coming very soon!
