    I used Plastikote spray paint. Gave each one 4 light coats of undercoat, left it over night, then sanded it lightly (if you apply any kind of pressure the paint will come off) and then 4 light coats of the colour, leaving it to dry over night :)

    Looking forward to seeing the Elysium with water-cooling gear inside - I just finished bit-tech's review. Very good case for the cash!

    These ones are silent, I promise you :) I'm going to buy one of the 3000rpm ones when I sell some of my parts to see what it's like :)

    It's very very good :) Suprisingly light for such a big case too, as it's about the same weight as my HAF 932.

    Keep an eye out, as I'll have this finished as soon as my new GPU block arrives :)

    I think the HAF is about 2KG lighter but once you get over 10KG it all feels the same really - too darn heavy!:D

    Doubly so once you fill it with components and watercooling gear. Even my HDD caddy felt like it was nearly 1Kg once I had my 3 1TB and 2 SSD's installed...

    I love the window on it though, one of the best I've seen to date.

    Secondly, I've now installed all the components:

    So tomorrow it'll be fun with tubing and tube sleeving :) And to finish with some mesh to cover that nasty mass of wires :) Stay tuned...

    Also, nearly at 10,000 views!!!!!
