    I love the color. Some pics of the internals would be awesome. Antec should consider doing color cases like this.

    Not enough pictures. You really need to give the new server more of a thrashing.

    Looks lovely, but maybe next time 10 fewer identical shots and 10 more close ups of the detail. Really liked the quality of the finish on the top grille and around the front panel.

    That's beautiful. Great colour, and finish! I'd echo the other guys about pictures of the internals, unless the PCI blanking plates are the only thing that have been painted. What components are you throwing in this, and are you going to get them painted too?

    Are you going to take it outside and wax it in the summer? ;)

    Very nice, got to love a good paint job. Also interested in what you intend to stick in it?

    I haven't decided on hardware for it yet.

    I like the look of that case stock, but that red is even better.

    Really nice! How much did it cost you if I may ask? And how did the guys react when you told them you want a computer case painted? :lol:

    Thanks bud but i was more after pics of his internals to see what, if anything, had been done internally.
    It's such a nice paint job i was hoping there was more to it than just the exterior.
    However, i did notice the blanking plates are already red, so guessing these haven't been re-done along with everything else?

    See this case has so much potential, it looks great with that beautiful paint. Are you going to be completely gutting the thing? To be frank, I have no idea what checklist the 1900 designer was going through, how is a case so large able to do so little in a stock configuration?

    Please for the love of everything good, fix this case and make it what it should be.

    To paint the internals you would need to de-rivet the entire case. Otherwise you would probably end up with bleed or over spray. I mean yeah, you can mask it well but it would still be really hard without taking it all apart.

    From looking at the case I'm assuming that only the back plates have been done. I'd say it's a fair assumption (going on the fact it's still black inside).

    Thread cleaned, please try and stay OT.

    Andy - please refrain from using the word "chit" and referring to people as such - it's derogatory and rude and so far, I haven't seen anyone be derogatory and rude to you. I have seen you use it alot over the forum, and while no directly it isn't a swear word - but it's fairly obvious what you are getting at.

    Personally I like the case :)

    OT: Having just read about my second hardware review ever at OC3D I can honestly say that I am eternally grateful that bit-tech has professional review writers.

    As far as the paint job goes it's very nice, but the case itself is so terribly designed and built that I hope it didn't cost much to get done. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
