Default I think orange may be my favourite colour.

There are a few minor things to do yet, gonna order up some mnpc tech grills here soon hopefully. Just for the fan's on the bottom. This is my first case mod ever, but I decided to jump in headfirst.

I had an Antec nine hundred before, but they seem to have had issues with the header panels on those cases, if I bumped it, it would shut down my computer. Actually go through the full shutdown process. People were figuring it was a bad ground or something. Anyway, it crashed a few times really hard because of it, and then most of my usb ports on my mobo stopped working.

Long story short, it was time for a new case. I removed the main hard drive bay, and put the secondary upside down to allow air to actually flow through the front of the case freely. Removed as much metal from the side panel as possible and still have something to attach the lexan to, and then had the bodyshop I work for give it a spray.

The colour is an oem orange from Mazda's. I wanted to paint it the same as my dodge, but that orange turns red inside, so I had to pick something a little lighter.

The old mobo going was convenient though, picked up a crosshair V to replace it. Similar to going from a kia to a ferrari.

Hah, well my fiance wants her phantom electric green and white, so my desk will be orange themed, and hers, which is right beside mine by the way, will be green. That doesn't clash at all right? lol.
