    well ive put the wheels in motion...

    i have ordered all my water cooling bits, dremel and some aluminium angles with a polished aluminium face plate

    my veiw is to take out the 7 bay covers and fans, make some brakets out of the right angled aluminium then to cut out the radiator shape from my polished aluminium sheet fix it to the brackets

    i have ordered all the needed parts but i still have a few ideas in my head!!!

    do i just make the brakets then cover up with some black mesh?

    do i go ahead and use the polished aluminium face plate?

    or do i use the aluminium face plate but spray it black?

    also i am going to get the inside of my case sprayed matt black and get some uv lights in there:D

    well ill keep this thread posted as i go but i am new to this modding so i'll prob end up buying a new case as this one will be destroyed by me and my temper looool

    if you can find some place to do it, get it powder coated, but i would advise drilling out rivits if you were going to do that, so that every part could get painted evenly, but if you arent going that route, just use a self etching primer along with self etching paint, that way the paint wont chip off as easy

    I do think using the stock hard drive cage was a little silly try mounting the HDDs somewhere else on the case
