Cool, but what parts do you intend on using when you do upgrade to i7?
If you could you should try modding that Asetek unit. I agree with Matt: that would look badass.
Your case is going to be silver and red or black and red?

I havenit thought too much about new hardware, it would be pretty far down the road as the case is going to take up most of my money. I do like the looks of the rampage iii, hd6870's and corsair dominator gt ram though.

As for the Asetek unit, I have a few plans;

-Paint the sunken in voodoo logo red.
-clear tubes with black anti kink coils.
-red coolent
-FrozenQ fusion resivor with red helix. (this one is still in the air as it is pretty expensive)

Oh, and the case will be red, (inside the fins, the fins will be polished or brushed, and the sidepannels will be black. I am still undecided on the interior color, most likely black, you wont see much of it though it will mostly be coverd.

Another small update. Took a trip down to canadian tire. bought some paint, sandpaper, a new cheap dremal and some accesories. I also managed to get 2 coats of paint on the front io pannel cover. I sanded by hand... that is not going to be fun if I have to do that for the entire case :S The color is actually a dark red. It looks very orangy in the picture.

All right. That sounds good.

Thanks everyone for all of the kind comments. I found out the hard way that it is too cold to paint. I sanded down the front i/o top and primed it fine... but when I sprayed my second coat of paint it did not go on smooth... at all. not too sure what I can do other then wait for warmer weather, or get it professionaly painted (although I think that would be out of my buget)

Anyone in or around hamilton that knows of someone with a spray booth that they might be willing to let me have some time in? This is a long shot but... I would really like this case to be compleated shortly into the new year.
