[Case Gallery] Purple



To view this case mod, go here.

3.0P4, 2x80gb WD RAID 0, nVIDIA 5500, MSI PT880 board, 512mb Kingston DDR400 (dual chan), Terminator TV tuner, Memorex CD/DVD, 52x generic CD burner, old MSI case (PIII era)

Cut side panel, installed acrylic window, interior and exterior paint, cable sleeving.

When I got the case, the old board was in it and the cpu fan was hanging by the fan connector bouncing around! Cleaned it up, painted solid purple (dark, for a freinds wife) who then took the case (fully assembled) home and decided it was too dark. Repainted a portion light gray and added some stripes. Used regular painters tape and pro 'striping' tape for the stripes. (helps make clean lines) Wetsanded and clearcoated for a high gloss finish.
