    Take a look at this work in progress and let me know what you think. I bought the vanilla case second hand for £70 a short while ago and spent the best part of a week cleaning the little fella up (shocking state!) - I wanted to do something very different and I think I've achieved it. The colour isnt to everyone's tastes I realise, but its totally unique and I like it!

    The specs:

    3500+
    DFI SLI-D
    1GB OCZ 3200 VX
    Asus Ultra Extreme
    Akasa silent psu
    120GB hard drive

    And the eventual cooling:

    Maze 4 Chrome
    Danger Den TDX
    Eheim 1048
    Dual Bayres
    Danger Den UV Blue tubing

    I started out with the barebones case, (albeit in a dust and grime ridden state) and cleaned her up in preperation for the work.

    I then polished the aluminium parts in order to achieve the "mirror finish". I had to use a giant buffer wheel to reach the desired results - this took ages!

    After everything was polished and I was happy with the results I anodised - I wasnt sure how the green was going to come out, but I love the end result.

    I have had to cut my own window panel for this - and unfortunately it was damaged under the wheel, so I'm back to the drawing board with this. I also cut a bezel for the Matrix Orbital display and anodised it.

    Watercooling installation to follow - this will be tricky as the space inside any midi tower is restricted! More pics soon!

    Wow, a CM ATC-110. B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l case!!!
    To bad the last owner couldn't handle her.
    Good luck chroming and pimping here out. I suggested something along these lines in Project: Sli 'n' Shiny Wavemaster by coolmiester around page 5.

    Damn, nice color you picked. I saw much cases that are polished, but i think nobody has painted on it. And you have :rock:

    Thanks for the replies!

    Here's an update: I'm in the process of leak testing now (so far so good) - but will leave it overnight anyhow. I'm very pleased with it all things considered, its been a tough case to mod. Also considering it's 1/2" ID I've done well with the room in the case.

    Awesome.

    Thinking of stealting that bay reservoir to make it blend more with the green, some way?

    It would probably be a good idea to maybe take a thin piece of aluminum, and glue it to the front after maybe anno'ing it! lol Um... otherwise, I can't see any other way to stealth it...
