Distressing the Yellow striping, I used combination of 80 grit sandpaper, wire brush and Red scotchbrite pads. I use Scotch 233+ Masking tape







The best tape is 3M Scotch 233+ Green tape

3M Scotch Green 233+ masking tape is used by Automotive Paint Professionals. It's highly conformable to curved surfaces on both metal and plastic. It has good adhesion in a large range of weather conditions. It will peel off without leaving any sticky residue. Most Auto Body Supply Stores should be stocking this tape. It's also readily available online. 3M Scotch 233+ tape has a premium price compared to other tapes, but it performs the best

Thank you! I've just finished the shroud for the Corsair H100 240 radiator, it's cnc milled from 6061 aluminum, 3/16" thick. I'll be adding more details to it this week.

Thank you wedge22!

I ordered the new Bitfenix fan controller from OuletPC I just noticed the Recon has ability to be controlled by the Internet (snickers) :D ... I can't recall a moment in my 12 years of PC building that I was worried about my temps while I was away. You configure the cooling so heat is never a concern. I can't deny that bitfenix has a devised a great marketing ploy.. However, I can see some Overclockers I know liking this capability.





Excerpt from Bitfenix RECON Product page

"Once connected, users can monitor and adjust their fans and temperatures via their mobile device. Best of all, the mobile interface is browser-based, which means it is compatible with virtually any mobile operating system, including iOS, Android, or Windows. At home, the easy-to-use touchscreen interface displays current system temperatures and fan speeds, while giving easy access to the Recon's advanced functionality.
Recon sports two specially-designed microprocessors that continuously interact with your motherboard, providing real-time status monitoring and control. Users can also save presets and recall up to three presets on-the-fly, making quick adjustments push-button simple. And to keep things looking awesome, Recon's SofTouch™ bezel delivers a luxurious matte finish and soft feel. With Recon, users are always in total control of their system – even on the go."

120mm Blue LED Cooling fans arrived. I love Prolimatech fans. I've used them frequently in my builds over the past year. They push good airflow with low dbs, pre-sleeved connectors and your choice of optional speed resistors, if the client requests near silence.

Factory Specifications:

Bearing Type Sleeve bearing
Rated Voltage 12 VDC / 9 VDC
Operating Voltage Range 6~13.8 VDC
Rated Current 0.3 Max.Amp
Rated Power 3.6 Max.Watt
Rated Speed 1600 RPM / 1200 RPM
Airflow 72.67 Max.CFM
Noise Level 29.1 dBA
Net Weight 107.2 Gram
Connector Terminal Connector(3-pin plus 4-pin molex)

The floor intake and rear exhaust fans will have these custom "New Conglomerate" logo inspired fan grills. These were laser cut from 1/8" thick Blue transparent cast acrylic sheets.

* I don't offer laser cutting as service, but "Laser Cutting Inc." does! They welcome small specialty jobs from PC Modders, Here is their website, Laser Cutting Service, Inc. | Birmingham, Alabama - Welcome
