    That is a good idea too.

    Though, I am particularily fond of being able to pull the gun out and use it. Never know who might try to creep up at a lan party and try to grab your rig from you. :nono:

    At first I did want the gun implemented as actual handle, but being able to use it, thats more fun! :D This is just the first rough draft, I plan to add more design cues taken from the actual gun

    Thanks Fatality!

    NZXT 1200 PSU's bottom is literally in your face when you open the case. From my perspective, it's a blank canvas waiting for you to add something. After painting the PSU matte black, I gave it to Brad to have the original Wolfenstein logo painted on the bottom. I like the distressed look of this version.

    [​IMG]

    Instead of making a paint stencil by hand, Brads using a Roland GX-24 Vinyl Cutter to make a paint template.

    The logo file is FREE! Wolfenstein logo on brandsoftheworld.com

    [​IMG]

    Brad separates the logo in Roland's "Cut Studio" program. White background will be painted first, then Red foreground

    Vinyl Film Templates, logo background (white) and foreground (red)

    The Wolfenstein logo will be painted on the bottom of the NZXT 1200 PSU

    The rest of the PSU is masked off to avoid overspray

    The White background vinyl template is applied over the PSU.

    Applying White (House of Kolor brand) polyurethane paint for background, this is a automotive paint applied with HVLP professional spray gun.

    Remember the 2nd template?, it's for the Red!

    "Sinister Red" (House of Kolor brand) polyurethane paint for foreground, also applied with HVLP professional spray gun.

    After the paint sets for 20 mins, the vinyl template is peeled off

    Now the Distressing, this rig has seen some action in the field!

    i want to get up on that case and do the nasty thing to it!

    just love the way that the PSU has turned out!

    If the attention has turned to the inside of the case, then surely this project needs a motherboard cover, and attach some old valves to it, so it looks like an old radio.

    650 and 500W PSU's will generally be enough but will be drawing at their peak all the time making them noisy. 1000W+ PSUs will provide power much easier (especially if it has more rails) plus it makes it easier to upgrade the system or roll the PSU over to a new project. And yeah, sponsors are generous lol.
