I would have to concur and say B as well, overall better look to it.
definitely B !!
I have a small bit of good news for you all.
Aqua Cooled PC have said they will sponsor the project!! Here is their banner that has been added to the main page:

Thanks a lot Gary
Just another small update today before I go and pick up some sand paper so I can finish of the bezel and side panels .
My lighting stuff came along with some speakers :
Next arrived the first items for my watercooling setup. MANY thanks to Aqua Cooled PC:
The res is awesome, it has a hole in the bottom for a blue LED (supplied) and just in my opinion looks really stylish.
If anyone has any experience with prepping watercooling parts please post and tell me everything I need to know as this is my first ever stab at watercooling.
Thanks all for reading.
so it looks like 'B' is winning so far then . I'll probs ask again after its been painted. On that note does anyone know a good car sprayers (in England ) as I don't want to risk falling at the last hurdle so to speak.
Thanks a lot Bill as well, making of the bezel was a lot harder than I thought, and thanks as well to you as if you can remember you tried to help me find the perfect case to mod in the begining (the cheiftec dragon).
Thanks all so far and I'll post some ideas of places where I will mount the res today.
Lo all, I have another small update for today .
I got down to some more sanding with my new sanding equipment, I love custom bezels .
I hate paint:
I then filled in a few tiny gaps in with some superglue (this will be sanded down later):
Ok I need people to suggest where to mount the res that I have, the case will be yellow outside and blue inside with UV yellow liquid and UV blue coils (spot the theme )
That reservoir looks nice, and the color scheme sounds great. Why are you hand sanding, rather than using a block?
I'd want that reservoir visible. What about some scheme to mount it half in/half out of the back panel? Crazy idea, I know, but wherever it is, it should be visible (but not on top like that, unless you're doing a lot more to the top than I can see.
Nice work on the front of the case. It is really coming together, looking great.
That would be awesome, I'll see if that is possible this week end . I am useing the sanding block now as well and thanks for all the input
@The boy 4rm oz thanks a lot man I'm looking forward to spraying it now aswell so I can see how close I really am
Hey, this project inspired me to fix my broken rebel9 value front. My mod cant really match up but just wanted to show you what i did I didnt have any battery in the camera so i used my cellphone . (Yes thats my foot i had to cover the small bright led from destroying the whole pic
haha thats cool man I feel proud .
I got your first post aswell so thank you.
I'm sure if you start a new mod people will want to hear about it so deff post it on here.
Thanks a lot for reading man.
Hey well when i get some ideas and money i will start a project with an old chassi or maybe a home welded one but as for now i will just get my new screen =) And one more thing go for B

Im still not 100% on the res choice, looking forward to seeing how this project progresses,
any updates matey?
Looking good flare
Lo all again and soz for the lack of update recently.
Ok well this evening I got down to some serious sanding to get the case ready for tomorrow when I hand it to the sprayer
My sanding stuff and my workbench/chair:
Ok so the wet and dry sanding began. I started of with some 400 grit as I had previously gone over it with some 240 grit:
When that was done I changed the water and started with the 600 grit:
Got to work on the front bezel as well:
I then touched everything off with some 1000 grit:
Then I got down to drying:
The finish, still really happy about the straight jigsaw line. It may not look 100% straight in the photo but in real life the eye can hardly make out any problems with it:
I'm not too bothered about particles being on the panels as they will wash it down again and sand it a bit more apparently
The nice contact with the home made ducts and the fan holders:
Case as it is:
Next update will be when the case is back, but I’ll see if I can ask nicely and get them to take pics of the painting process.
Thanks all for reading
That was a lot of sanding, and what color wil he come back?
I think i missed that post
mirror gloss yellow on the outside and gloss blue on the inside
hey you going to digital overload this year?
Nice color match!
