    UPDATE - 10/5 - Woot Got Sponsored !!!! :D

    Thanks to Bill at MNPCtech.com

    I picked up a HAF932 recently for a bargain price so I'll be using that case. It's weird but this will be the first case I have ever modded, having scratchbuilt Monolith all those years ago.

    I plan on doing videos as well as some money shots so we will see how a Modding Video Worklog pans out.

    The colours will be bright Green and Black. Here's the paint I'll be using for the bright green.

    Here's a couple of Sketchup concepts to whet your appetite. Sorry I don't have time to learn any rendering software.

    I'll be using Scythe Gentle Typhoons and painting them the lovely green to match. I'll also be braiding my PSU cabling green (not shown) and depending on what I can get watercooling hose wise I'll be looking for green again.

    You can see in the 2nd image that I'll be making a custom reservoir for this case and also painting some of the radiator.

    The unseen side panel and roof panel are still in the planning stages.

    I've done some work already so the next post will just play catch up a little.

    As I said I've already done some work to the case and here are the worklog videos, the first is in standard quality however all the rest will be at least 720p thanks to a new camcorder :)

    Dismantling the case


    De-riveting the case - 720p


    Painting - 720p


    I'll be taking some more photos of the parts when they have dried properly :)


    Also my first set of parcels arrived, some new fans for the case. Scythe Gentle Typhoon (who thought of that name?) 1450rpm.

    I decided against doing a video of my opening up a parcel, especially after I found how it had been shipped..Getting into Fort Knox would have been easier. Anyway on to some photos.

    These won't be staying stock for long I have a cunning plan ;)

    As you can see I'm working with my camera to try and take some more interesting shots of hardware..

    There will also be a short video coming soon with regard to the fans ;)

    I am really not sure if I hate the look of the HAF932 or love it. Projects like this and Luna, are really swaying me towards love. Might have to pick one up myself.

    I shall be watching this with great expectations, you better not let me down :hehe:

    Moking a maze out of a reservoir is amazing (lame jokes but couldn't resist)
    Your fluorescent green is really gorgeous it should look awesome with the black case.

    Cheers folks :)

    So another update, including some money shots of my green spray painting adventures :)

    After a couple of coats of primer, green and some clear lacquer here's how the case internals turned out.

    As you can see it I can't get any closer with the braiding :)

    Also I have a new video up now too. :D Also available in 720p.



    I still have some more painting of the case to do but first I need to get my jigsaw out and start hacking away at some panels.

    That color match is perfect! Looks awesome; just proof that paint prep is EVERYTHING. Nice work, I look forward to watching this one ^^

    We just agreed one night that Toxicity might well be the, and definitely is one of the, best new tracks in its genre. This project seems to be off to a good start as well ;)

    Considering I have a HAF 922 and I think the 932's are so much better.... I sub'd.

    Can't wait to see the finished product.
