Default Artwork PC, First Build in awhile

Working on my first watercooled build again, just trying to update a little bit and learn some new stuff before selling it off in favor of a fully new rig. so far so good, just getting started with the powder coat and side panels.


First post BTW excited to join the forum.

Thank you, its been around since '06 I want to say, so the panels themselves are showing the wear associated with actually being used... won't hold up under close scrutiny, bunch of nicks and scratches. But its like an old friend.

I agree with your Birk, it would probably look even better (already looks amazing) if there was some wear to it.

Really love the sidepanels, they're simply amazing. Are those painted on, or stickers with clear coat?

Spraypaint. No clearcoat. My friend is a street artist that likes to use stencils so he agreed to do it for me awhile back. Will be continuing to work on it in the coming weeks. Probably painting the mobo tray tonight. Will be documenting and looking for input continually.

Default Motherboard Tray.

Latest update, finished the motherboard tray yesterday, not alot of fun pics yet but dont worry they are coming. The boring part is waiting for the painting to be finished. Like 3 minutes of work and 4 days of waiting....everything is going to be done in the next couple days though
