Sci-fi/Space Station/Dystopian mod w/Corsair C70 case


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

working on my second Hackintosh project, and just finished the paintjob and visual side of it.

Not sure what to call it: I was inspired by sci-fi movies (Aliens (1986) in particular as the attentive reader might notice).

Perhaps simply "BauerCorp Mod" or similar.

 

 

Anywho, this is the build so far: (Software setup still remains)

• Primary use: Creative work, video editing

 

• Corsair C70 case

• Inno3D iChill GTX 1080 TI

• ASUS Maximus X Hero 370 (Wi-fi, Bluetooth)

• i7 8700K

• 32 GB HyperX RAM

• Samsung 500GB 850 EVO M.2 SSD

• (7 SSD drives total > Will be transferred from current machine when everything else is ready. Same with lighting.)

• PSU: Corsair RM750X

• CPU fan: Noctua NH-D15

 

Let me know what you think, and if you´re interested I´ll post more about the build/painting process itself.

 

Thanks :)

Love the paint finish, I'd love to try this myself and credit you.

 

Can you please share the process in creating the grey base color finish?

 

*Brand and paint color you used for the grey / blue base color?

*Process for applying paint base color?

 

 

My guess is that you used brush for the base color coat. I am aware of how you created the silver exposed metal scuffs and scratches

 

 

btw, if you do another Corsair C70 build, here is custom window without the fan holes, https://mnpctech.com/mnpctech-clear-case-pc-panels/corsair-c70-window-replacement-clear-fan-holes-120mm/corsair-c70-custom-window.html

Hey,

 

sure. It´s very simple: I used spray paint from Edding. Edding Permanent Spray 5200.

You can use other brands, I just like the fact that these are matte/semi-matte.

They are quite pricey, tho.

Grey color is Antracite (I believe) and then I used yellow for bits and bobs.

 

I didn´t prime the case at all; I just washed it and made sure there was no grease on it.

Then simply paint, apply scratches with steel brush or whateven gives the effect you´re after.

The paint sticks pretty well to the case, and since the case is stationary, and you´re going for a weathered look, there´s really no need to prime.

 

No need to credit me :) Just glad I could be of inspiration. And FWIW the case still looks the same 2 years later, so it worked out fine.

 

Happy painting!

Lasse :)
