Those switches look great, lovely build!
Is the green plexi on the fanbus not going to look ... odd ?
Out of interest, looking at that fan controller, the front fascia is held on my Allen-headed bolts, why couldn't you have taken it off, sanded and primed the fascia? Just wondering, it would have looked a bit better in my opinion, it just looks a bit rough and ready.
It was already brushed aluminum, so I had to only roughen it up enough for the paint to adhere.
But you got those nice acrylic green edges smothered in paint, if you took the front off you wouldn't have!
But they're also on the inside case edge. Out-of-site
Actually, AMD's logo color is green. That's why I'll be backlighting it in green and using green cathodes inside. Maybe even green coolant....
The AMD logo will be going on the right side
could you not paint those chrome switches black ? i think it would match the paint scheme alot better
amazing project tho, your lucky to have such amazing sponsers
Actually, I hadn't thought about that. What does everyone else think?
if you're brave enough to paint the switches go for it my only concern would be that they would get stuck, dont know the best way to attack it
i think the 8 should be blocked rather than rounded.
Nice, very interested in those hybrid revodrives myself, let us know how they are please!
So am I. It's getting to the point though where drives are so fast you really can't tell 200MBps from 900MBps
Here's the parts list thus far:
16GB Crucial Ballistix
1TB Revo Hybrid
850 Watt Enermax 80 Platinum
Not sure about cooling yet
wow lucky on the parts front

@Shrop - You are talking to the king of speed-modding there.
I think painting the switches wouldn't work. However, hitting the hardware store for some black rubber boots to fit over them would be good. It would make them black and bulky.
Bulldozers have shiny bits too -in the hydraulics pistons.
Apparently AMD wasn't sure how serious I was about this project and if I had even started yet. So I sent them some pics of my current status. Just got word back this morning that they will be sending me their top processor, the FX-8150!
Wowzers, looks like this is coming together now with some lovely hardware.
I am extremely jealous of you right now!
+1 for the freebie
That is awesome, when you getting it?
