Default Some ideas for a soon to be rig update...

Buy this case.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE 3D Aurora 570 GZ-FA1CA-ASB Black 1.0 mm Aluminum body ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

Paint case interior matte black.

Fashion a custom delrin piece to cover the top of my bright red gfx card.

Disconnect all annoying lights on the case.

Modify water cooling tubing runs to take advantage of extended case interior.

If possible tint acrylic window case comes with or modify a sheet a sheet of smoked acrylic to properly mount to the side panel.



So what do you all think? Comments, Criticisms, Ideas, Advice?

layout is going to stay the same as my current rig

the new case is just the updated version which is slightly longer and all brushed aluminum. Plus its black

Because I happen to like the gigabyte aurora cases, and I wont need to do much in the way of rebuilding my water cooling loop in making the switch.

Besides I think my external radiator is bad-***, so bite me

While it may be possible to accomplish it would require a fair bit of modding which I'd rather not have to do...
