A few years back I modified my thermaltake armour, spraying the internals black and cutting a few water cooling holes.
I then sold the pc to my brother, but a few years on he no longer uses the case and it has come back to me.
So today I set about breathing some new life into it, which resulted in a complete dismantal and sand down ready to be painted.
The Internals have seen a right battering, so they will be getting a full re-spray, although this time I will be doing things properly.
Here's how she looked:
Then stripped down:
And Sanded (some of the paint came off painfully easily, but patches were still there good and strong and refused to come off).:
Im a massive formula one fan, and with the arrival of F1 2010 this project just wouldn't be proper if It didn't have influences from my favourite team: Ferrari. So a few red highlights will be going in...
I also plan on watercooling the rig with a triple rad up front.
Hardware will be the following:
Phenom X6 1090T,
8gb Corsair Dominator 1600mhz 8-8-8-24,
Asus 5870 v2,
Asus Crosshair IV Formula,
OCZ Vertex SSD.
For those of you wondering why Im recycling the old case, this is what my rig looks like at the moment:
Stay tuned, I should have an update by tomorrow!
