Default [MOD-PROJECT:] CoolerMaster Wave Master

NOTE: This post was created December 10th, 09 as a work log for one generic case, and a Cooler Master 690. These cases where to be modded. However, the seller of the generic case sold it for $20 before I could pick it up - he literally sold it twenty minutes before I went to pick it up. The seller of the 690 decided he wanted to sell his PC as a whole, and not part it out. Now, instead of having this closed, I decided to convert it into something else - you know, to save space

While my main rig (see sig) is waiting for its second SSD to be replaced via RMA, I will invest some time into a case mod Ė or two.

I planned on picking up a Cooler Master 690 and a generic case and see what I can do. This would have been my second and third attempts at case modding. My first attempt was to a case that housed a Pentium II. However I didnít document my work on it, but I was able to see it locally for a fair price Anyways, both selllers backed out, so I can not get these cases anymore. I know that it was dumb of me for creating a thread before having possesion of these cases. But I bought a case this time, and should get it soon! I plan on modding a CoolerMaster Wave Master!

The Depot carries metal paints, and plastics too. If you're planning on making a hobby out of this I'd consider an entry-level spray gun/compressor and experiment with automotive finishes. They are very durable and the colour choices are almost infinite.

I do have a professional grade air-brush in the house... somewhere.

I completely took the case apart and have most of it primed and ready for a light sanding. I got a few pics today when my friend stopped by with his point-and-shoot. My camera is still getting repaired

My plan so far is to paint it a matte black with carbon fibre accents with red LEDs

So this is just a quick little paint sketch of what will be what color... Woo! Paint Rocks!

To the Green areas will be done in carbon fibre film. The Cyan box is obviously a window, and the Blue LEDs' you see will be Red. This whole case was sanded, primed and I am waiting for a day to paint. It will be all black with Red and carbon fibre accents.
