clear coat/laquer/varnish could help (not tried, but it should.)
Like I said on OCAU, awesome work!
Reminds me of my Angel case
Which in turn reminds me of this case...
dude, Im not all about these cases but this by far is the sweetest one I have seen. Mad Props. i really love the front mounted fan holes. I really love that window mod too. thats a sweet panel. mad mad mad props Cant wait to see this one done!
Acctually.... it is very reflective.
When i first picked it up i was just happy to have it look "normal" because the guy who did it didnt look all that relieable
anyways, as i was carrying it over the front lawn i saw a flash of "white" grass
i was like "wtf... that's not meant to ...... omg..... ITS REFLECTIVE"
it's not a mirror but god damn it has some good reflective ness. i'm stoked
hehehe, your jedi mind tricks have no power over me... mwahah .. *falls over*
heheh, well. i dont have a measure ment for before i did anything, but i do remember that it was fairly light. Now... it's a heavy biatch.
I have nfi how i'm going to carry this biatch of a case, i had a hard enough time before i did anytthing to it.
Acctually, i'm starting to think it will be a little lighter. Considering i've gotten rid of the drive cages, most of one of the panels, the front fan holes, the rear fan holes. hmm... only time will tell i suppose ^_^
would you mind trying to take a picture of one of the side panels so i can see how reflective the stuff is.
I'm thinking bout getting the outside white and the inside black or otherway round cant decide yet.
That's as it comes from the workshop... not polished or anything.
What would you polish it with?
It's not quite the same as paint is it, more plastic based from what i gathered, maybe thats the old form of powder coating.
Acctually.... it looks almost exactly like some of the quality paint jobs that have been done.... only not quite as reflective.
It dosent look like plastic at all irl.
As for the polishing ..... i really have nfi .... i was just going to use the stuff that dad polishes his car with.
I'm not even sure i should polish it.... if it got anymore shiny the poor front panels will look even more out of place ^_^
ok ladies and gentlemen, today in the process of the case modding i made a huge step. I decided to do away with my crappy temp case and finally move into the NEAR completed Chieftec case.
Some pics of the install process.
Left to do:::
::Install the Cold Cathodes.
::Install the Window Acrylic.
:: Perhaps paint the drives.
Excellent man!!! So, no water cooling?
Please say you're going to paint the PSU!
Love the case man, its class
All in good time..... i have no job atm , things should start happening after i get one.
Not just yet.... atm i'm focusing on getting the damn case back together completley.
When it's all finished then i'll start worrying about other things such as the psu, blanking plates, fixing the fubared job i did on the front fan brakets, properly glueing down the rear plexi braket.
Oh yer... and major system upgrades after i get a job ^_^
very nice x3r0 the front of the case is great.
I may of considered filling the holes on the side panel but that just an opinion. Great mods and sleek face lift
great work! i love white and blue together
why don't you try with an uv cathode? all that white should be very reactive
I did try to do this with putty, however it kept on popping out of the holes when i sanded it back
Now there is something i hadnt thought of
try with adhesive tape behind the holes, or with a sheet of paper
remember to wear sunglasses!
dont forget to paint the fans too! the pink stands out as a bad eyesore pretty well
Fans... clear or white... good idea
Looks cold... better get on a jacket to use the computer
