    Removing the TUF shield (The Ultimate Force) on the Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard. It's fastened on with 8 screws on the back.

    You can install an optional "assistant" 50mm cooling fan that screws into the portal pictured above. The assistant fan is an optional component and doesn't come with the Sabertooth.
    Asus recommends mounting a CPU cooler that will blow airflow downward, toward the CPU socket.

    I actually forgot about this one. I love the warning sticker, it's amazing how direct translations loose their way some times..lol And the Saber tooth whens it's stripped sown looks very ordinary all of a sudden. I'll be watching to see how that spray job comes out. I'm getting Ideas now. I never realized that the mobo was vented either, I'm thinking a couple of well placed LEDs.....mmmmmm

    That cover would look even better camo and a pair of Corsair Vengeance stick would not look out of place either on that board

    I like the picture of the "do not remove" sticker; with the next picture showing the screwdriver proceeding with the action.

    I also noticed, and liked, the addition of the Lego. You made it all fit so well - looking good!

    @bulldogjeff, the p67 covers open a new realm to modding
    @23RO_UK, yes, and please contact me when your Noire build is finished bro!
    @Kovoet, you hit the nail on upcoming project this fall, ie: digi camo theme inside/out :lol:
    @Karrek, much easier to get lego instead of sourcing collector sci-fi model kits off Ebay :thumb:
    @cheaps, strictly matte black finish for this one, with exception of painted highlights
    @Nanosec, thanks bro!

    I wanted this build to be the 1st with "hand painted" artwork on the TUF shield, that reflects the theme I created on the chassis. So I enlisted Brad's paint skills. In return, he asked that I take him out to dinner at Big Bowl with Knob Creek and Cokes :cooldude: which is fine dining to us backwoods hicks. So, the cover for optional 50mm fan served as nice location for bio-mech skull taken from the front of the chassis. Brad chalked out general idea and location for the artwork. Other than using hand made square ribbon stencil and corsair 600T intake grill as a stencil, everything was painted off the cuff, freehand without stencils. Since ASUS was kind enuf to send me the p67, it's only proper that their logo gets incorporated into the artwork. (since I removed their stickers!) I'm also leaning toward anodizing their Green heatsinks Black...btw" Notice how the mb heatsink matches the Green paper on the table perfectly? coincidence or a warning to not change them?.... btw: You won't see the brown & tan gpu slots

    Don't pay $40 for professional airbrush stencils! Make your own, grab image online, edit in photochop, print it, then cut it yourself with Xacto knife.

    I just happen to have an intake grill from corsair 600T in my car...lol. It served as perfect stencil for airbrushing the mesh grid background. Otherwise Round Modders Mesh would have worked too!

    @Blooddrunken, Brads da man!

    @kier, I have no doubt you would be good too :thumb:

    @ColdzeroTeam, "off the cuff" art is the best imho

    @23RO_UK, sweet, look forward to the final piece :rock:

    @AJB2K3, Brad did the paint on the mb, him and I are huge fans of GIGER
