    I know this colour won't be everyone’s cup of tea but i just love it........and it's even brighter in real life :p

    I've had most of the components for this one for a little while now but other commitments meant it all sat round for a while but eventually i made a start.

    This will be my new work machine and the Shiny Wavemaster will become the new game rig.

    [​IMG]

    Component list:
    Wavemaster Yellow
    Lan Party NF3 250GB M/Board
    AMD Athlon64 3200
    2x 512mb OCZ 3200 Platinum Cas 2
    Tagan 480watt
    74gig Raptor

    Cooling List:
    TDX CPU Block(nozzle 1)
    NV-68 GFX Block
    Laing DDC-12v Pump
    BIX Double Rad
    Floppy Bay Res

    Anyway, here goes...

    First off to strip the case down of everything that can be removed as there is a little bit of cutting to get a double Rad to fit.

    Got to remove the 2x 80mm fans from the front also which have to be de-riveted by simply drilling the top off the rivet with an oversized drill bit and the rivet should simply fall out the other side.

    Time to mask off the top and turn the case up side down, as some of the PSU cage needs to come out so the Rad will fit in.

    Cutting out this one section (red arrow) will not weaken the cage at all and will allow the double rad to mount far enough in

    Server fell down.......back up now though :blush:

    OK…got all the top marked out with a dual grill ready for cutting

    [​IMG]

    I’m using a rusty old grill that will be sanded and painted black later

    [​IMG]

    /…and here it is cut and holes drilled ready for the double BIX to be fitted.

    As you can see…..i’m carrying the black and yellow theme through onto the mainboard which is a Lan Party nF3 250GB (no shiny bits on this one)

    Somebody upthere already said it, but I think its true :)

    The interior would look wicked if painted black. Black and Yellow :) (mobo also :D )

    Did think about painting the inside but i quite like the bear new aluminium and nothing i could do to it would make it look better than what it does.....i need to get this case finished and up and running asap :)

    Anyway....sanded and painted the grill which has turned out pretty good even though i say so myself.

    5 coats of primer and 15 coats of gloss black and then wet sanded and polished with T Cut

    Took a long time....think it was worth it?
