This post gets my vote.
Maybe... I'll think about it.
I'm not going to paint it. I'm going to get Carbon fiber tape and use that. Since it doesn't chip. (Plus it'll look a lot cooler.)
:O Where could one acquire such a thing?
Linky, that should look nice.
It's this one?
uhh. its pretty hard finding them now. so i have no idea. i got it used from a guy on overclock.net. I ditched it though and went to green because of ati's crap drivers
I plan to order it tomorrow... If I'm sober enough. (My 21st birthday, and my payday. )
going to tell you ahead of time happy b-day. Hope you enjoy i can't wait till my 21st bday(only ~3years )
yo, that carbon fiber film would be so sick. i kind of want some!!!!! stick it on the top of my megahalem!
Happy early bday bro, have fun and be safe

Right Here; Right Now!
This is it...FedEx just left at 10:30 am and now I am going to do an all day/night until this thing is done. I made a sig to tell what's in it; but after seeing all the beautiful rigs all y'all have done and are doing and re-doing the CM is going to be a challenge to make it even half right. I'll be back in the morning one way or the other.
I've been at this thing all day and all night and this is the result. Mobo posted right out of the box without a glitch, thank you Gigabyte
Everything seem to fit o.k. and the case was quite roomy to work in. Routing all the wires through the holes was fairly easy thanks to modular PSU. Thanks to 'paulieg' @ TPU for the great deal on the Corsair.
Then came the dreaded CM part. When I finally looked at the bundle of wires coming out of the top of the case I thought 'holy crap'looked in the manual and yup....NO HELP!Calmed down and and looked at the panel and sorted everything out.
Started in hooking everthing up, shortening here and there, cable ties everywhere. This is my first attempt at CM and I'm pretty well satisfied with it. The side cover went on easily with no lumps 'n bumps.
I must have drank at least a gallon of coffee doing this, 'cause now I look like this!
numerous time outs to the little 'room out back' were annoying......
Must have done something right 'cause Vista installed without a hitch. Thanks to 'logan' @tPU for trading that Retail copy of Vista Ultimate. No more OEM software for me. I'm so glad I learned how to slipstream SP1 before I did the install. Just finished installing SP2 and my eyes are burning and going to pop right out of my head.
The final result...I'm just going to run it for a few days before I do anything to it. Strictly in a stock configuration.
oh no you didnt buy vista -.-
I was thinking that myself. To each their own.
Fantastic looking setup, I'm sure you'll have a great day. I'm jealous.
Very awesome stuff man.
And ya what's with the Windows Vista?, why not go with 7?, then again, you probably got Vista for cheap, so in that case... nice job.
yaaaa was having some fun testing these drives in raid-0
had a quick look and thought they were raptors
hows the speeds of those 4 discs?
lol they are raptors
not bad at all
must be first gen raptors then?
sorted my desk out and upgraded the home theater, lots to do still
Not a bad accomplishment for someone your age that's for certain. Nice to see you pop up here on the TPU and I hope you'll stick around so we can see what else you're capable of doing.
Running my lappy (Asus g73) as my main rig atm.
