My Finished Build! (Custom Paint)

I started this build last month and finally finished this week with "everything". (IT NEVER ENDS...) I wanted to go for a look that would match everything. Too bad i couldn't find a PSU that was all red and under $200. Damnit Corsair! I'm Still not done with it.

  1. Dude, that's sick! Congrats on the new build. I am not a big fan of red, but still you pulled it off realllllly well! Hope you are enjoying it! The specs on this rig are also beastly haha....YES it can run crysis! lol
  2. Nice, did you spray paint or get it powder coated?
  3. Thanks Guys. I didnt think it would be this EYE POPPING but oh well.

    I used Spray Paint. Several Coats. I wanted to paint the HAF logo but the surface on the outside isnt good for painting. Cost me Around $150 in supply's and what not to paint it.
  4. Sweet, I only have one thing wrong with it, I'm not a fan of those fans (haha) I have one and it's too loud for me.

    Otherwise it's sick.

    Which one? ahah i used to have 2 3000rpm fans so this is nothing. :D
  6. Nice, but a little too bright on the red for my taste.
  7. I think my camera made it more red then it actually is cause these pictures just POP
  8. Did you actually paint the fins on your HSF black?

    My guess is that would actually decrease the cooling performance, because the paint would insulate the fins from the air being drawn through them.
