    Hello visiters of bit-tech, first let me introduse myself.

    I'm Jelle and im from the Netherlands sow my english isn't the best.
    Im 19 years old and im working with computers as long as i can remember.
    I did a lot of small mods before to practice my mod skils :p
    Now i decided to mod my coolermaster stacker.
    My goals are to make a case that is clean and proffesionel build, im not the kind that builds a lot of light in my pc sow that i dont have to putt the lights on in my badroom when im working on my pc. I like it smooth and as clean as possibel. Some things im going to change.
    - Proffesionel paint job.
    - Watercooling
    - Black window
    - Matching keybord,mouse,tft monitor.
    I know its not a lot what im doing to the case but its going to look cool i assure you.

    This is how it should look like when i'm done.

    Overview.
    [​IMG]

    The paint job is inspired by the new spyker formula 1 car.

    Its clearly not the best car in formula one but i chose this one because i reale like the collor. And because its a Dutch formula one team and the national collor in most sports and events for the netherlands is orange.

    oke i probebly talk to much sow lets start and see from what i'm starting.

    As you can see its a stacker painted red, ugly as hell.
    First lets build the hardware in a other pc sow i can still wright in this topic :wallbash:
    [​IMG]
    What you see is

    Intel p4 775 3Ghz
    1Gb ddr2
    Ati 1650pro
    80Gb seagate ata
    160Gb samsung Sate II
    Dvd burner
    Dvd player
    Cheap 350 watt psu
    Its not the fastest system around but i dont need anymore im not a gamer or whatsow ever.

    Lets begin to prep the case to go to the painter.

    To remove the paint and the anodized layer on the aluminium bars i use soda water. Just lay it in hot water with this stuff and a sigarette later and some scrubbing later you will get this.

    Nice clean aluminium bars de-anonized ready to sand down.

    As you can see in the top of the stacker there is a plastic part with stacker in it, i dont want that so lets make that disapear.

    Looks good, gonna keep an eye on this one :thumb:

    If you're painting the outsides orange I suggest making the inside black :)

    The inside is gonna be a dark/grey color, the same color as the front wing of the spyker f1 car. I have mailed spyker headquarter to find out the color codes of the spyker f1 car doubt it but hell i can at least give it a try.

    Hey there!!
    You HAVE to incorporate some of the original Spyker-themes!
    Look at the propeller-like spokes in the steering wheel, or the gear-leverage in the C8!
    btw, that gear-leverage must be the sexiest in car history...I mean, alu-brushed and open like ferrari does it is nice, sure...but this? I LOVE it! This is pure hotness.

    Sadly realising it probably doesn't match anything in your mod, you could always put im some nice flik-switches like in the C8 :D

    Good luck!
