nice job dj
keep it up DJ!
gonna paint it gold?
Already did, pics laterz
Omg cannot wait for it xD
can't wait man, it's looking great so far!
You know guys, im only limited to how much of the SSD can i paint considering how sensitive and f8cking expensive it . Here's the result
I dont know why u dont just take the stickers off,the warranty is void as soon as you paint it
Actually, that paint is can be removed easily.
pretty much anything you use to take off the paint will lift the stickers, too.
Than i can do it carefully and slowly. Don't worry
Next up will be the new Cosmos II ultra tower case. Will arrive probably in about a week from now. After that - the WC components and build
With what do you paint things to look gold man?
I find it really interesting!
Just an average gold spray paint for metals. After a few hours with the corsair performance pro guys... my god its blistering fast, just unbelievable.
review here btw
yes, i can tell u arent using primer? looks like it is peeling off already.
time for a MEME!!
in 4 subbing.
Thanks guys, just a quick update 'till the case will arrive
i have ordered three yellow-LEDed fans and a fan controller from microcenter, will update with pictures this week
Here's another update, the fan controller is here (quite a simple one) and also some quite BQ! fans
Also, I have decided to choose the Unreal Tournament Logo and theme for this PC, just to honor 13 years of UT gaming for me.
Now, you guys be patient as i am regarding the case. I really hope it will arrive this week as im really sick of waiting. You try running a cherry picked 2500K at stock clocks for 2 weeks...
It's here, will start assembling very soon
Good Luck on your mod dj. Wish the best of luck and show everyone afterwards your mod.
I'm really interested in seeing how all of this turns out. Best of luck to you in this project =)
I have started assembling the computer today!
because the cosmos II case does not have a proper place to mount a thick triple rad so i had to improvise. i'll let the pics speak for themselves.
Im not pleased with the color of the water and gonna change it soon...
for now on ill concentrate on getting those bubbles out and getting the Logo paints done
That MSI logo on the VGA seems out of place... not because it's silver, but because of the blue lights. Maybe do an LED swap?
Those barbs look great on that golden EK block.
And may I suggest giving your tubing a quick once-over with clear metallic paint? It would still allow you to see through the tubing, but it would give it a nice shimmering effect. You can get paint like this in multiple colors, of course gold is one of them.
Also, if painting rubber or plastic, there's a special type of spray paint that is actually a dye and soaks into the material you paint without changing its elastic or flexible properties. I've used it for USB cables, gaming controllers, even plastic shrouds on RC helis/planes with great results. It's not a huge deal to paint rubber or plastic with regular paint, but after a while it starts to want to flake off, especially if it's on a surface that flexes, like tubing.
I'd also like to comment on your great choice of gold paint, it matches the motherboard almost perfectly!
Of course of all of this is merely my opinion; just trying to help
All in all, looking great and keep it up!
