Hello ladies and gentlemen,
it's been almost three years now since my last mod project, so I think the time has come for me to get back in the world of modding . I hope it will at least partially turn out the way I imagined and that I will be satisfied with the final result.

So, i'm opening this thread to share this with you... If you have any ideas or suggestions please let me know :thumb:


HARDWARE:

Intel Core i7 2600K
Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 1600MHz
Corsair H60 (for now)
Gainward Phantom II GTX 660 Ti
OCZ Vertex 4 128GB
Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
Seasonic X-Series 650W
Corsair 600T White Edition
MDPC-X Sleeve - Black, White, Shade 19, B Magic


PLANS

As for cooling i am currently staying at Corsair's H60. I thought immediately go with the water cooling, but considering that over the next month or two I have quite nice amount of other financial expenses water cooling will have to wait until the May. I'll probably go with two 240 radiators, one in the top of the chassis, and the other in the front. This top rad will fit with no problems, so there will be no additional modding in top of the case. For the front i'll have to do some of cutting and drilling to appropriate holes for radiator. For now I'll just throw out the grill in front of 200 mm fan. 200mm fan at the top also stays until the arrival of the water cooling.

These two 200 mm Corsair led fans, i'll paint the them in black and white combination. Leds will stay, so we'll see how that works.

HDD cages will be completely ejected. For SSD, i currently have a few ideas what to do with it, so I do not know what to tell you about that. To hide the hard disk i will use Scythe Himuro. Or I'll throw it out and use it as an external drive... We'll see

5:25 bay cage also stays for now because I do not know yet what reservoir i'm gonna use. But no matter that, 5.25 bay will not remain in its current state, there will be some work on it.

PCI brackets will be painted in white.

Those rubbers on mb tray will be probably thrown away, later i'll see how that looks.

Bottom of the case will be covered with plexi or something similar and painted white

Also i need to make some kind of backplate for graphic card.

Removing all unnecessary labels from components, such like those one on psu, mb, etc.

And finally all cables will be sleeved with mdpc-x sleeve



Think that's about it for now. Pics are coming later today. :thumb:

So, as i promised...

600T taken apart, cleaned up and ready for job to be done





And the hardware i'm gonna use



H60 stock fan was replaced with two Arctic F12 pwm fans, sleeved and ready to go...


Two 200 mm disassembled and painted


PCI brackets also painted white

So guys, me again with some more updates

Today I painted the front grill in white, so we'll see how this will look tomorrow when it dries. If it is ok, then 5.25 bay covers will also be painted white. What do you think?








And some more updates for 5.25 bay.

Anyway, i won't talk to much, you can see everything on these pics...

















So, what do you think about this. Does it look ok so far?

NVM actually looks like you left the protective peel off thing on when painting.
