yep! stuck um on with my bare hands
read what we've been discussing before you moan. We love my PC....for games. I just like something a little more reliable when it comes to working. Another PC user who has never used a Mac or OS X but feels qualified to have an opion. I have both and given the choice I'd have OS X on the PC hardware but in the Mac case.
cool where did you get 'em?
they're just coolermaster alu ones, you get them everywhere, even PC World does them for about £6
ALOT of people need cable management - like ty-straps, and thingys, seriously it opens up a case alot more, if u put all the cables together, and dont leave them lose and hanging everywhere
- larger clear space = better cooling
Yeah yeah, i already said i didnt do a wire-job yet. Ill do it in a few weeks.
my alienware has a nice cable managment
takes like 5 minutes TOP to put some ties around ur cables :-/
I dont want ties, i want UV sleeves.
those are cool, but i have two regualr cathodes, not uv lights
i just totally dismanteled the X-Dreamer, and painted the inside gloss black.
took all day yesterday.
I got the HL2 applitique thing for the window, and a blue bubble light for my 5.4 aquarium. I cutting out the parts for the tank today. then throwing a rheobus in the 3.5 bay #2.
I got custom fangrills too and have the HL logo on the top. Its gonna be a silver and black w/ blue lighting themed HL2 case.
it will be done by the 30th hopefully.
Here's my little rig:
Inside there is a Gigabyte 7VAXP, Athlon 2800, 1GB PC3200, Sapphire Radeon 9800, Globalwin TAK 68 Cooler, Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS,
100GB HDD (2 Hdd's) Blue Cables & Lights.
that sounds lovely, if not a little sad. Good luck with that paint inside the case, sounds like a fire hazard to me (gloss paint very flammable).
even when its dry?
Pics - taken with a cheap webcam, high res later when i buy a flash card
The top. The bright silver thing is a blowhole with a biohazard symbol fan grill, paintjob is not done
the paint job on inside, it was originally aluminium, you can also see the start of the split loom added
The front of it, at botom are cut out grills and 2 fans
The back lighting (2X 80mm blue led fans, 1X 12" cold cathode blue)
try looking at the paint tin, does it have an orange logo with flames on it? If it does, cross your figures and pray that nothing gets too hot or sparks. Why do you think that they only spray the outer side of the case and leave the inner bare!
i acually used a can of it, and used a brush.
It says the standard kep away from flame when its wet, but no warning symbols or anything.
should be fine
keep a damp towel nearby
I'm sure you'll be fine, not something i'd do though
im gonna take some outside and test with a lighter.
ok i help the flame right on it, and tested sparks, with the flame for like 20 seconds it just bubbled a bit, but didnt turn to fire (used a scrap metal with dried paint on it)
its safe enough for me
fair enough, better to be sure. You do know that black as a colour soaks up and holds more heat than any other colour. Example, get in a dark interior car in hot weather......toasty! If I was to paint my case interior I'd do it white.
I'm not try to be picky, honest. I'm generally quite helpful to people
there's a reason
white reflects more light than black, and also reflects the heat that light carries
black, by nature being the absence of color, and the absence of color meaning none of it's getting reflected back at you, "absorbs" the light is the simplest way i can put it, and also the heat that comes with that light
so, unless your shining heat lamps into your case, black paint shouldn't raise the ambient case temp more than a degree or 2
Gotta love the 21in monitor
lol. .. good job man. wish your cam was a little more clear though
Here's my setup, got my case open for cooling until I get my Vantec Aeroflow and 2 PCI slot fans in
My case was < $20 offa newegg over 2 years ago, pretty good deal if you ask me, it's been nice
Some new pics and the last few until next update to hardware
SidewinderX143, is that a stuffed animal humping your joystick?
I like the basketball court to the left.. you must be good. . heh.
Sure, looks ugly as hell but it's pure goodness inside ;p
AMD Athlon XP 2200+
MSI K7N2 nForce2
Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb
nice wallpaper, hook me up with it?
btw, cool PDA!
Cant see the computer, but anyways click here :afro: :dork:
Heh, thanks I don't remember where I found that wallpaper but it was somewhere in the forums. And I don't have it on my hd :<
And iPaq's pwn :cheers:
Heres some ATI Wallpapers
jeez u guys really have money to throw away with ur futuristic cases and flashing lights... i would rather put money into makin my car look better than a computer case
i wanna paint the inside of my case black, anybody know what kind of spray paint i should use?
Let's think about this.. lights for pc vs car..? Much more expensive for a car.. hmm, how about a paint job?
i just did this. Look for 'Armor Coat Rust paint black gloss'
or any metal paint should do the job.
be weary of highly flammable paints.
