What's a Dremel?
Join Date: Nov 2012
Hey all. New to the site and wanted to post the build I'm working on.
I've been dreaming of building up a high-end system that I could not only game on, but also stream, edit videos and it use to run some game servers at the LAN events I run/attend. Well, this system is turning out to be a beast.
CPU: Core i7-3960X
Motherboard: ASUS Sabertooth X79
GPU: 2 x ASUS GTX680's
RAM: 64GB Kingston HyperX Predator
SSD: 2 x Kingston HyperX SSD's in RAID0
Storage: 4 x WD 1TB Raptors in RAID0
Cooling: Corsair H100
Case: Enermax FULMO
PSU: LEPA 1,600W
You may have heard of Bob Stewart over at BS MODS (http://www.bsmods.com/). His work has been featured in CPU Magazine, multiple websites and he's done a lot of work for vendors at shows like CES and PAX. His painting skills are unmatched and I knew I had to have him paint this case.
I told Bob I knew I wanted an old school hot rod type of theme. I wanted a metallic silver base with a candy purple flames. Beyond that, I let him run free. The pics below are the final results of his paint work.
Here's what the case looked like before he started
Here's the PSU before paint
Time to lay down the base coat of paint
As you can see, its got a great metallic flake to it
Now time to custom mix the candy purple
Red & Blue makes Purple
Now that the purple is mixed, its time to layout the flames and paint
Bob figured out a custom way to paint the acrylic so the side panel with the window could also have the flames
Here's the power supply painted with the silver and flames
And now for the final pics of the completed paint job
As you can see, BS Mods did an excellent job with the painting of this case. I'm currently waiting for the motherboard and video cards to arrive. When they do, I'll post the progress of the build along with the final pics.
Thanks for taking a look at the build.
