    Thanks a lot m8´s!!!

    And also a big thank you to Bit-tech.net for the nominee for the motm!!! :clap::clap::clap:

    hehehe, we really like bullet bill for decades now and we always wanted to airbrush it on something...but always waited for the right time and right case...:D

    In the last days we made a lot of other things (like working on our Weighted Companion Cube)
    so we didn´t made that much progress on this mod.....

    But what we could handle was to assemble the hardware and change the mainboard for another one which matches our color scheme much more (another reason was that we already assembled the Gigabyte Mainboard in our Wall-E Project :D)
    Beside the Mainboard we also changed the RAM for another pair with color matching heatspreaders.....

    We also finished the work on the Reservoir and mounted it together with all other components for a first test so that we could see where we´re going to make the next changes....

    I love the original case, but what you're doing to is really good :) That orange (Sunburst Orange??) is such a striking colour, where did you get it from?

    thanks a lot my friends :thumb:

    Oh yeah, we also love the orange colour! Originally its an laquer from the automotive industries its called "electric orange" and is used on the Ford Focus RS for example :D


    Today we changed a few details....

    first we changed the color of the Graphic Card Cooler from grey to orange....

    then we changed those orange watercooling tubes for black hoses which we will finally use...
    [​IMG]


    We also added one of the new Coolermaster Fans to the Backside of the Case, the dome of it is already painted in orange as a small detail....

    The cooler and the fan look fantastic! Please, don't paint bullet bill on the side of the case, it'll ruin the entire look :(

    In the last days we finished the painting process of the midplate and putted everything together for the next tests....

    then we made a first test how bright the LEDs are, which we already integrated (just to see if we need more)
    [​IMG]

    and we decided that we´re going to change the color of the Fan frame which we use on the Backside of the Case

    I agree, the fan looks great! Again, PLEASE don't paint bullet bill on the side, it looks so sophisticated and I think that would ruin it.

    Character is always many many many many leagues above sophistication in my eyes :thumb: the Mario bullet rocks & adds a nice fond memorys of fun challenging gaming touch to an awesome mod & it looks so in place & very nicely painted on as a nice extra detail :D:rock:.

    I think any modder would like this & anyone who ever enjoyed playing the games would like it too :) something about some games that just scream fun times :D which is part of why nintendo done so well, maybe if he was going a bit overkill with the bullet I'd agree but it's just right, these guys are mod masters, I'm blown away by how many quality mods they have done & always working on who knows how many per year lol so yeah they have it down to a fine art & I salute :clap:.

    I like what your doing mates, seems very near complete :) keep it up :thumb:.

    and off course we put it inside the case directly...

    [​IMG]

    and we put in the most of the cables which we will later use....(to see where we have to route them)
    and we also changed the color of the Watercooling Block mounting bracket to a matching orange color tone...
