PLAN from the11th of may 2015:

 

Things or stuff to mod:

 

I want to paint the radiator.[NOT DONE]

I want to vinyl-wrap the SSD.[NOT DONE]

I Want to do something with the tubes but im not shure.[NOT DONE]

I want to spray the top of the hdd white so that the green doesent show out anymore.[NOT DONE]

I want to do smth. with the front panel [NOT DONE]

I want to do the G1 Gaming/Windforce LED logo change[NOT DONE]

I may want to paint the 970 white (the shroud and backplate only obviously;)[NOT DONE]

I want to paint or mod the top because of the weirt mat finish[NOT DONE]

I want to change out the window to acryl or real glass because my stupid self has already scratched it really badly ;([CONTACTED NZXT(lets see)]

I want to do do a cool lighting effect that somebody has suggested, to put a led strip on the side of the 970's shroud to give it a backlighting effect[NOT DONE]

 

Things I might buy:

 

I want to learn cable sleeving BUT I'll just buy extensions :)[NOT DONE]

I want to do lighting not RGB but just plain white.[NOT DONE]

I want to do lighting under the case (NFS underground style ;))[NOT DONE]

I want to buy different fans (Noctuas or Bitfenix Spectre pro white without led's)[NOT DONE]

 

Just wanted to give you guys an update of whats hopefully comming soon :D

 

I have redone the whole cable management  its awsome now!

Nice plans, m8, I have some suggestion here:

 

1) About that scratched window - try NZXT support, they can send you a replacement panel, like they send me a replacement top panel for my H440. All they wanted was a copy of the purchase receipt and within 10 days I had a free new panel :)

2)Good pick on pure white LED, it will look better than that RGB stuff and wont kill the color scheme :)

3) Please don't buy Noctua fans, the poo brown will kill it completely...

 

Eagerly awaiting pics :P

I plan on buying the industrial ones and paint the rubbermounts with white plastidip:D

And yeah I'll give the custumer support a shot;)

EDIT: you have to be patient;) im not a super rich guy (and I'm still no adult man who works for his money)xD

EDIT²: @1Scotty1 did you get your new panel for free?
