Default Drizzt's New Case {Painted + Pics}

3DAurora


People I know of with this case (please say so if you got it):
Aspire.Comptech

Ignore the big black lab, she is 17 years old and cannot be moved if she doesn't want to be.


Let me start off by saying immediately when it comes out of the box this case just looks sexy. And many cases in this price range do not pull that off. Out of the box, with no pre-mods it is a perfect combination of performance and price (short of free) and looks in my opinion.

The quality of the case itself compared to my old one is obvious from touch alone also. The door for the case opens the same way as my old one and is close to the same size... But the way it looks and the metal material it is made from just gives it a feel that shows that this is a great case.

The pre-made WC holes in the back are also very handy as well as the lock for the case side panel which has a handle that will not allow you to take it off without pulling it, and the lock on the door.

The option between Mesh side panel and Plastic is personal preference and i picked Mesh because i love the look of it. Some may disagree but I will just ignore you if you say it's bad looking cause i love it. The side plastic panel window that came with it gets to sit in a box though.

Due to peer pressure from Aspire.Comptech and an offer to paint it by zerodayatk, i went ahead and gave zerodayatk my case to paint, and I'd like to thank him for painting my case just for lawls. Otherwise, without the peer pressure from aspire i probably would not of painted it at all.

Now the PICS!

I just got home from a lan and what do i see as I carry in my 21' CRT? *owie my back*?


BOX! YAYSAUCE LETS RIP IT OPEN!






So that is the case parts that have not been painted, that is straight out o' the factory.

Now this is what zeroday did paint!


Love the paint on the back, adds a bit of style to the back part of this case.


Oh god, painted bays, yes, give me more.... *brb visual orgasm*

Your pics are painful... :P

Anywho, paint job looks decent, wouldn't say it was great but should look good once you get it all put together.

Glad to hear you like it

Aspire what did you do with your front intake fan? Cause they say that it is pointless atm without taking a filter off :/ Not concerned atm, but I'd be nice to know if that would add even more airflow

Not my fault people can't take pics...

Also the d80 is a dslr, just for correctness.

In my own experiences I have found my use of the 70-300 lens is rather limited.

The biggest issues are it's size, and its rather long min focus range.

Its great for some applications but very akward for others.
