Had the HAF prepped for powder coating and took it to a shop downtown..



2 days later....



then I saw this.. :fou: 




So the original quote was for $195 and included sandblasting, acid spray and paint inside/outside. So I complained and Ended up paying $100 which Im still not happy about, but i will be selling the case anyways.

finished pics



Thats My i5 Budget build for now but please tell what you think. Advice and Criticism is welcomed!!!!

HAF next to Antec 300





Im going to be selling the HAF 932, it is way to big for my taste. I love everything about that it but its massive!!!

New Crap on the way...

You did some nice work there.

I think we often go overboard on the size thing.

Ya its really easy to work with a big case like that but in reality for my build its just a space waster. I just bought a 600T.
