My eternal custom painted and sleeved PC project
Planned the outlook of painted P193 with mspaint... http://img801.imageshack.us/img801/2240/p193punanen.jpg
Painting starts... This was almost 2 years ago.

Finished painting, added sticker to hide where the painting failed. I need to redo the painting of the side panel once more eventually.
After stripping an Antec Truepower 1200W modular cable of the sleeve it comes with, it looks like this:

So I have to sleeve around these Powercache capacitors. Fun challenge!
There was a lot of sleeving. I think I did like one cable every week during some free evening when the wife and kids were gone somewhere: http://img201.imageshack.us/img201/9861/noniin.jpg
Cutting cables when I had to...http://img580.imageshack.us/img580/5301/leikattu.jpg
And when you need some soldering to be done, you look at me... and then you look away: http://img178.imageshack.us/img178/1266/soldered.jpg
But the ugly can be hidden somewhat with heatshrink: http://img42.imageshack.us/img42/1699/sleevedone.jpg
Standard fans discarded, some Noctuas had to be painted too.
Overlook of the internals of the case before adding gpu
Adding GTX690 DC2 that I finally managed to purchase today: http://img837.imageshack.us/img837/9...0619161015.jpg
You could do it better, but youŽll forgive a first time sleever.
Maybe if I just clean this up a bit with compressed air, itŽll look ok.: http://img6.imageshack.us/img6/5624/20120619162046.jpg
(the other pci express card is a 240GB Revodrive 3 if youŽre wondering)
