    690 is going back to its owner Monday. I guess you can move that to the previous list.

    My Case. I just wish the inside were painted black. I may have to buy some cans of spray paint.

    looks like a bass box, or something to control the volume, maybe a small amp.

    Yes painting the case will take quite a bit of work, but it will be worth it and you'll feel this proud feeling inside knowing that you took something ordinary and made it your own.:cool: I was so stoked when I finished painting my case!

    strip> sand> primer> sand> paint> (sand/paint again if needed)> done.

    I live in an apartment, so i don't have the space or tools to do it properly. I was thinking of just striping it as much as i can (front bezel & side panels) then masking the outside. I'd probably but a sponge or cloth squashed over the fan vents to prevent leakage, then going over it ith some primer and finally a black coat. I wa wondering what the best way would be to ensure there's no dust remaining over the area i want to paint, just wipe it down before i paint?

    Here is another Cooler Master Case to add to the club! (some of you guys have already seen this build, just thought it belonged here.;))

    This is my good friend's Cosmo.S that I built for him. Most of the hardware was recommended by me and this rig come out to almost 3 grand. As some of you know cable management is a big deal to me and it was a bit hard with this case. I wanted to cut more holes to have a cleaner look, but Manuel wanted it finish sooner. We built this rig about 3 months prior to pics, so I'm sorry about the dust and the stained res (that's what happens when you dont add the PT-nuke in distilled water :shadedshu) Since then we have cleaned the loop which now looks nice. Also another 4 gigs have been added for a total of 8gb Ripjaw ddr3 1600mhz and a stable overclock of 3.990Ghz @1.47v


    System Specs:
    -Phenom II X4 965 * MSI 790FX-GD70 mobo * XFX Radeon 5870 1Gb/ Sapphire 5870 1Gb * Corsair 1000HX psu * G.Skill Ripjaw DDR3 4Gb * Seagate 1.5Tb hdd/ WD 320Gb hdd * LG Blu-ray player * Koolance 340 cpu block * DD radiator * Laing D5 pump * Enermax and Apevia fans-

    Performed Mods:
    Painted internal black and drive brackets/ thumb screws red, cut hole for 24 pin and, sleeved 24 pin only, cut internal top grill for better airflow, sound dampening on the bottom, cable management, cut front fan grill for airflow, water cooling.

    HAF 922, fully populated with fans. Red LED on front, blue LED on side (annoying, I know).

    Our rigs are very similar but for some reason I like yours more.

    Hey, if it works for you, that's all that really matters. Honestly I think it's a nice looking rig. Your cable management is pretty dang good from the looks of it.

    That looks familiar! Glad to see you got that V8 working, it looks eerily similar to its old home. Been years since I've seen a Maxtor hard drive too.

    I agree that these 912's aren't much to look at but the functionality and build quality for $60 is amazing. Also, need to get something better than this ratty piece of fiberboard to set it on.
