Wow, looking really good. That camo paint job is really sweet looking as well. I just love the side panel.

Thanks guys, if you recall I installed a green led 250mm fan in the top earlier. Red leds will be in the final version.

I received a lot of inquiries offlist asking about the Black fan with Red leds in the NZXT PSU.



The red beam of light over the Black fan blades creates a menacing look. Great fit with our Wolfenstein theme. It's very easy to do yourself, heres how I did it.



I used this 120mm Logisys Red led fan. I'm removing the stickers before applying the paint.


No surface prep necessary when using Krylon's "Fusion" aerosol to paint plastic.


I'm using cloth dabbed with Lacquer Thinner to remove the glue residue left by the sticker.


I've pulled out the 4, leds and tape all of the wires. I've also taken the Kamikaze approach when using Fusion on another project and didn't tape off anything before painting it. Logisys fans are remarkably resilient to my abuse.


Krylon's Fusion dries within 15 minutes.


The fan is finished!



120mm Honeycomb Mesh Fan Grill for the front of the fan.


The honeycomb grill is made from 22 gauge steel and powder coated Black.

Thanks James!

2x 250mm Red LED Cooling fans arrived today, these will replace the Panzerbox's stock 190mm fan in the front and top.

I'm gonna keep the 25omm fans clear so they illuminate the perforated chassis.

The factory NZXT 190mm cooling fan, BEFORE


250mm cooling fan, AFTER


Sleeved the pwr/reset/hd/pwr leds connection
