My 16GB of Kingston HyperX DRR3-1866 RAM came in on Friday.



Also here is a Google Sketchup of what I plan on doing with my NZXT S340.

The cable management panel will be painted Go Mango orange as well as the expansion slot covers.

I'm liking the colours! Orange/black builds are my favorite but rarely see them.

More pics. Today I took my GTX 980 Ti and painted the shroud and sanded off the green from the GeForce GTX logo. I don't have any pics of the GeForce GTX logo but I will once the card is in the machine.

Being painted




All back together

Thanks. It only took two light coats. I was thinking about clear coating but I like the matte finish look.
