Looks good. CoolerMaster is a good case, and I like the red. I keep thinking that I should paint/mod mine. I like the look though. Mine is a Cosmos S 1000. Time to save some toonies for Mnpc maybe? Great work, and I love his custom painter. You make it look like you've done this before.

Thanks,

Yeah every since I painted my ram cooler black at first I just became addicted to painting stuff so I saw Oliverthefrenchy on youtube paint his so I just decided to do mine and thankfully Canadian Tire had the same paint that he used. No sanding required, this paint is like rubber.

Interesting, never seen many people use lacquer, is it glossy?

I would say It's closer to matt than glossy, Became more glossy as it dried now like 30% glossy :P
I really like the way it looks.

Yes... I did have to cut off some un-used power cables to make things look better, my first time adding sata power connectors, almost stabbed myself with the screw driver a few times but I made it.
The split sleeving was perfect for a lazy person such as me, it made things alot easier.

My camera kinda exaggerated the color saturation intensity of the red and the flash does make it look abit glossy but looks better in real life imo.

Now I am just waiting on some red coil for the H50, a cheap addition that should look good :)

At the CM Store but it's not there so it must be on back order again, I waited a month to buy mine at the end of March. I am planing of making my own custom window without a fan hole with my oem panel if that turns out nice then will sell the one I ordered... yeah.
