I'll be doing a mod/build at PDXLAN with 600T and Corsair ram, Psu and SSD. It'll also have Gigabyte G1 Sniper and Gigabyte 500series GPU. Not sure on all the parts as of yet but will post more when I know. I will do most modding prior to event all easy stuff just to keep it simple.

I'll start today by taking apart case and sanding and painting some of the case. I'll be going with a all black and blue theme since the green on mobo will match. I have been itching to do a blue theme. :) I am trying to pull in Koolance on this build but who knows. I would love to use the new H100 should fit right up top. Perfect way to demo your new product. Hint hint!!!

Ok heres some pics and one complaint. why cut corners on the feet? all this high quality craftmanship to make this case but you use rubber pads?WTF!?!?!? o well.......... no need to show before pics we all know what it looked like. heres stripped down before drilling out rivets

I like those pictures "step by step". They help a lot of people like me who's start interest in moding.

Thanks and keep going !

 

yes step by step is good in a worklog... :)

 

so for the beginners heres a cheap tool ($20 @ Lowes) it will become your best friend when taking cases apart for paint or powder coating. and you'll notice tape on the end so it doesn't scratch the case.

I think this is the only flaw I found in this awesome case...
