you could always paint he founts of the drives
Very very nice,it does look the part
I was talking to Brian about painting the top of the CM V8 cpu cooler to look more "ferrari-like" I really like the silver and red intake manifold on the 599
Thats a fab idea!!!!! really looking forward to seeing how this whole project turns out now!!!! especially as was looking at this cooler if i couldnt afford water cooling lol. but the ferrari red does look the part
Yeah a really good idea, that would look sweet.
The air cooler must get painted... that would look amazing in this case. In fact, I'd venture to say that it would look better than watercooling.
I think you are right there Craig.
indeed i may have to agree!!!
Video of the case, along with other videos from my facebook page
Nice vid Bill. I really gotta start getting some stuff from you .
Cool! just contact me direct anytime, pcbuilderATmnpctech.com
Nice of you to include the video in this thread. I hate facebook.......
No problem.. I understand.
I'm awaiting the arrival of the CM V8 cpu cooler from Brian. I wanna see just how big it is in person
I'm sure CM would send you one Bill if you really wanted it lol .
I hope it fits inside the case!!! Also, I was thinking on my way to work today, I'll have to install it on the side rather then upright. The two 92mm fans in the rear are meant to pull in cool air, send it through the heat sink / processor area and, up to the top two 120mm fans and out. That being that, If the heat sink is installed upright, the fan on the sink would be blowing against the wind, so to speak. On it's side, it'd be blowing up and out as it should be in this case. Hmm, I hope it can fit that way. Also, this might be a consideration as to how it gets painted on the sink? I don't know... All I know is, as soon as I saw this sink when it first came out, I knew it was the one. It has great performance from what I've read.
Theres a box looking at me, I'm heading over to the shop this afternoon and will crack it open
Yea, we can paint a bio-mechanical theme instead for you

Me and my colleague Tom Portsmouth actually had a bit of design input into those coolers last year.
I remember an embarrassing moment for CM when they were actually going to call one a V7 but it was pointed out that engines don't actually come in a V7 format
Needless to say, they dropped that idea
To our relief they turned out to perform well and look good which was the main criteria
No, no, the engine idea is better for this.
Excellent pictures and every bit of information a man or woman could want EXCEPT.......
What does it weigh. I'm still betting it weighs more than H20-C7
