    Looks good POS... I would allow it to dry over night myself.. I don't know about having everything hooked up as it's drying... But, nothing covers over what you wrapped up, so it should be good.

    HDD??? I gotta see a pic of that! Your on a "artsy Fartsy" mood huh? :)

    Yeah, I figured it was for a before and after pic. Just gotta be Captain O!.. That way the little thing doesn't go over a person's head when they start going crazy.. I wish I had that on when I had my Xtrememusic card... Recapped it, and did a few mods all at once.. Now, don't know what killed it... :roll:

    Huh, well...

    A small sacrifice:roll:


    It would be sick if a board company made either a see through or mirror mobo:rockout:

    Would definitely buy a mirror mobo:)

    :laugh: thanks. i personally liked the way it looked before but not it looks even better.

    I don't think i want to kill everything. It would be sick to have a mirror or see through board.I would get the see through because i am a sucker for things that you can see through


    I am thinking about painting the bottom of the HDD too :roll:

    Looks very interesting POS. Oh and you picked a great day to do it, we are getting 60F weather up here in Youngstown right now. Definitely odd for almost January.

    Well this is something I haven't seen before :wtf: That HDD look way cool now :D Was looking at the earlier pictures and PSU got my eye "now if only it was black like mine" and then I saw you painted it. Then HDD looked out of place and you painted it also :laugh:

    Just got myself setting up cold cathodes, cutting a whole to side panel and getting plexi ready to be cut, but in waits gray cuts and blue mobo, It'll have to do :ohwell:

    edit: gave thanks to DaMulta thread too, this was one sexy board when it came out. Almost bought it just for the color http://techreport.com/articles.x/8689/2
