THX you 2, the paint is NOT good, but you cant really see it, its just because i know whrer the bad paint is.

yeah the scheme is good, always wanted af white and blue pc so i painted i this morning.

i have a slow upload so i changed the res. on my digi cam, otherwise it would take forever to upload, but whin i get the lian li, it will be at a photographers place, and then the pictures will be nice

The way you have your fans doesn't make sense to me.. It appears you have the first one on the cooler pulling air towards it, but the exhaust fan is sucking air from the back of the case. I can't see the second fan on the cooler, but either way it's pointing if my guesses are correct it won't be doing a very good job at cooling the CPU.

Hey no problem. Glad I could help you out. Everyone makes little mistakes like that sometimes, trust me. The one I always remember is me putting together a whole new system and forgetting to plug the CPU 12 volt in and raging when the system wouldn't boot lol

Very nice paint mod,, I did one similar with white paint http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/1786.html
can you add a pic with the side on


yeah i will, tomorrow.

its like 00.30/12.30 at night in DK

the paint isnt that well done, but the 2 colors together is very good i think.

think i will do the same with a Lian Li case, just with som powder coat.


yours is very nice with those colors, like it very much

Hey no problem. Glad I could help you out. Everyone makes little mistakes like that sometimes, trust me. The one I always remember is me putting together a whole new system and forgetting to plug the CPU 12 volt in and raging when the system wouldn't boot lol

yeah i know that, did it with a P2 940 and it destroyed it due to much heat haha, i almost cried.

and also i will be removing the 9800gtx, the gtx-295 is getting very hot, lik 70c idle, and cant put the 9800 in the buttom socket because of the PSU, damn thing

Nice color theme, paint quality is very good. I like it.
but i have something to ask isn't that a Thermaltake V9 case? how did it end up forgotten in the garage? I'm asking that because it's almost a $100 and it's a good Mid-tower case.

yeah i know its a good case, but! i got it like 4 months ago for free and i had the antec 900 at that time and didnt want to change it with all the CM and stuff like that, and besides the top panel was broken in the back, so i had to glue it back together, wich you can see on the picture from the backside.

but anyways, i put it in the garage and a couple of days ago i cleaned it up and found it, had totally forgotten it, så i painted i quickly and here it is.

but i'm thinking something wild with the colors next time with a lian li, maybe some chameleon ?

may I ask what is the option you see on the physx settings? Is it just the same enable/disable? Or do you see another option that selects what video card you want to use?
