    Been wondering what to do with the new Coolermaster ACTS 840 for a while with no real plan as yet but felt if i didn't make a start at some point soon i'd be playing catch up which i've done in the past.

    Anyway, whatever happens the chassis would be getting anodised black so decided to strip the whole thing down.

    Pretty easy job in all honesty with only eight rivets needing removed to get the top off...............still got cut out the base to fit a 240 radiator but apart from that its ready to go get anodised.

    BTW, very early stages so expect this one to take quite a while but at least its a start :lol:

    Sponsors Include:
    Coolermaster
    Intel
    HWLabs
    OCZ
    Zotac

    I was looking at that case for a future mod (I know, gotta finish the first one!)... can't wait to see what you'll do with this. Past work very impressive, so I'm sure this one will be great. Will be watching.... :)

    Paul, I don't mean to be a prat, but that top panel can easily take a 420 or 480. Why not go for broke?
