Painted the interior semigloss black 2 coats primer, 2 coats color 2 coats clearcoat.Top panel is cut for a 5.25 fan controller/temp unit and drilled for power and rest buttons.

Loop is a 655 with modkit, ek top, bitspower ultra watertank res, feser 1/2in uvblue tubing, OCZ hydroflo block. I had a mcw30 but the tubing angles werent right so, coils didnt help, so off it came.

Nice looking setup! I love when someone goes minimalist rather than putting 5 different colours of lightning:).

Thats a fantastic looking res too, should find out about one of those for my next tear down.

Thanks guys, the 2 wires showing in the bottom of the case are now hooked up, power/reset, and are hidden.

ST: Its a older Armour about 2 years old the interior paint job is new the ext stock. The top panel never got painted inside, since I cant see it from my chair IDC.

CB: 4 UV 12" CCFL's shed visable light and the damn PSU glows blue:( The 2 intakes are blue but dont spill much past the drive holders.

Ahhh okay, so same vintage as my old one then as well.
It brought back a lot of memories, most good, some bad. But I will always hold a special place for the Armor Series of Cases.
Good Job all in all Grover, I really do like it.

Regards,
ST

Okay before I fill it and leaktest I need recomendations should I go with the sleaved tubes or naked tubes?

The tube were a PITA to use comperstion fittings on and IDK if I like the look.

Keep the SLeeving Grover, that looks awsome.
Honest to god.
ANd I still love how you 'fitted' a Sentry 1 in the top of your Armor.
