    Thanks, man!

    This structure was much better and more rigid than the old.

    Thanks for following... :thumb:

    All portuguese:

    Valeu cara!

    Pois é eu tinha pego uma cantoneira mais fina e achei que ela serviria mas ficou muito frágil então fiz outro mais resistente... :dremel:

    Pode deixar que as atualizações vem... às vezes demora um pouco mas vem... :naughty:

    Abraço.

    Thanks, Superman! :p

    Keep folowing... :D

    Well folks as promised, i am presenting to you the photos of the structure 100% ready, i had a hard work but in the end everything worked out ...

    Enjoy ...

    And I also used to test a technique of making the brushed effect... with a brush ... :D

    I particularly liked this new technique, very easy and convenient ... just brush toward the streaky nature of aluminum and with the brush in a horizontal position (in the same way we brush your teeth ...)

    Hope you enjoyed.

    Thanks to all who follow and support this project ... :thumb:

    That's right ... this works ... :rock:

    Thanks man!

    By necessity, came creativity ...

    Here in Brazil is almost impossible to buy one of these two cases, both the Raven 2, as the Corsair Obsidian 800D ...

    For you have an idea ... Raven 2 is nearly $ 500 and 800D Obsidian comes to $ 850 ... that without the shipping .. that leaves around $ 50 ...

    So, I prefer to "do" my own Raven2/Obsidian 800D ... uniting what each does best. :thumb:

    Certainly the prices of these cases here in Brazil are absurdly expensive.

    Thanks, with the support you give, give me an "energy" to keep doing more for the case! :dremel:

    Well ... unfortunately this is the reality of Brazil ... As vendors are few they put the price they want on cases ... Silverstone TJ07 sells for almost $ 900.00 ...

    It is indecent but who wants to have a "decent" case has a lot of money to spend ... :waah:

    Yep, I have to agreed with Marcos, the hardware and stuff costs too much, some items can cost 2.5~3 times when sold here.

    Well, this is a very complicated reality here in Brazil ...

    Maybe in the future or do not change for the better or for worse ... :lol:

    Thanks for follow!

    This same guy, these prices "unreal" are real in Brazil!

    This effect should not I actually use in the case, it will be painted with electrostatic paint.

    But I wanted to share what I could do with a simple wire brush, which others can use this idea.

    Brazil has one of the largest tax burdens in the world, but the problem is not necessarily that, because when they are imported cases has a 60% tax on the value of the case plus shipping.

    The problem is that only one store in the entire country sells the Raven 2, Obsidian and 800D in Paraguay comes out to $ 400.00, but arrives in Brazil, almost twice that of Paraguay who cares, and who sells without being in Paraguay puts a price that is a robbery!

    As to the effect, I was amazed when I did, because it is so easy and convenient, so I decided to share my discovery with you here in the forum.

    Thanks!

    This effect is very easy to make with this brush that I've shown in the picture, and the effect was very good.

    Surely this case was not made for a LAN PARTY ... finally to take it would be very complicated ... but who knows for a Campus Party?

    Thanks to everyone who has supported this and following my project... I had a birthday yesterday and completed my 30 years... :clap: I'm getting old... :grr: but never to casemod ... :rock:

    awhile since I posted anything here, I made some modifications to the case, I painted the motherboard tray, lined up the structure and decided to test how the case would be with the fans from the bottom of the case.
