    where do i begin? idk......

    my past logs have been....well rather unlucky.

    i have moved ALOT around this past year and 6 months, therefor i could not finish those many projects that i had started, and im sorry for that.

    and im sorry for you guys who followed and cheered me up with your comments, it was very much appreciated.

    but now i have finally settled for a good period i think :) i got a regular job, good GF, nice little apartment, car, what more can you really ask for?

    now on to the project

    i didnt want to start a log until now that im atleast 50% of the way, most things now are eyecandy, sleeving, details and such

    the plan is to take my Corsair 600T, then paint the outer shell metallic yellow :twitch:
    yeah you heard me, YELLOW!!!!! and black!!! uuuuh yeah

    lulz errrr


    jk


    the hw is following :

    i7 2600K
    8GB Vengeance
    5870
    ASRock z68 extreme 4 (to be bought), oh yeah, i love the look of that board, gold caps :eek:
    [​IMG]
    HX850W fully sleeved(in progress)
    OCZ Agility 3 60gb x2

    going to get the case painted by auto painter since i cannot find metallic yellow on cans anywhere, and the end price will be around the same, 150$ for paint and around 100$ for cans, so i take pro painter with nice little metal flakes

    I noticed you had the heatshrink over the back side of the sensor connectors on the fan controller. If these get plugged in side-by-side, then you might have some issues. The previous owner of my Lian Li mITX case did that with the front panel switch & LED connectors, but they would not plug in due to the heatshrink.

    Man, it takes some gonads to buy a new case and chop the heck out of it. Looks like it's going to turn out super. Where are your HDDs going to go?
