If I can get the water cooling gear sponsored, definitely.

Otherwise I may just go the bazillion fans route and keep the spacing suitable for mounting a rad later on.

Picked up spray paint today.

Matte Black for the outside and fluorescent green for the inside and accents.

Decided that because I'll be taking this mod with me to the nvidia lan, a green/black theme would be suitable.

Well, I tried painting the rear motherboard panel with the green paint and jesus christ is it absolute rubbish...

Half the paint just turned into a fine green dust which settled onto everything within 10 ft.

And the paint that did manage to stick to the object left me with a crappy finish thats essentially see-through.

So, I need to find something else to use and return this s*** to home depot.

Rust-Oleum brand paint worked great for me...

try putting on primer? or sanding?

The paint just wasn't wanting to come out nice.

I've used their paint before and never had an issue...

Anywho, I'll probly just wind up doing the whole tihng in the matte black.
I've used it a lot before and I know it will give me the results I'm looking for.

And on a random tangent I figured out what I'm going to do with at least some of the numerous drive bays.

ThinkGeek :: USB LED Beverage Cooler
But two of these. Take the cooling units out of them, make a custom insulated box and create a 2 drink beverage cooler in the front of the case.
That way I'll always have cold bawls/dew.

Aside from that I'm still open to other ideas...
