Project Scorpion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, it's been awhile since my last build but I finally have another in the works, This one I call project Scorpion

Going with the Thermaltake Core P5 V2 for the case, here it is with my great Sketchup skills that don't catch any details but I guess you'll see those as I add them along the build process.

Along with with the Thermaltake M360 Plus water cooling kit!

... and of course the Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 ARGB 850w PSU!

I've not got everything I need for this build yet so this will be an ongoing project, however, that said, I've made a start where I can.

When the build is going to stagger in places it is bound to leave me time to think about things that I can change to improve my design, I decided to try the Cablemod Vertical GPU mount, it looks amazing on this case and that's even with the weird 8600GT I used! :D

This has been the toughest in my opinion. I've never had to account for factory paint being in certain places, like the front IO panel. To get a flush, surface wasn't easy, it took time and a light hand, I used 2500grit wet to sand down the edges where I painted the green to blend with the factory paint, the main reason I did this was to avoid any paint chipping in the future.

Paint chipping and even coating after sanding is my largest concern as to why I haven't gone into doing it myself. My desktop right now isn't in a chassis so I can't really go into painting it. Some day in the future maybe.

There's plenty of videos nowadays that can assist you, my biggest tip would be don't worry about the process, as long as you use the right tools and take your time it will go right, even if things go wrong, which they have for me before, I just sand back using a lower and lower grit if needed until the error is fixed, as long as your not applying too much paint and sanding in between it's easier than it looks, albeit I'm still learning but that's where the fun is for me. :)
