Case to match the orange on the Gigabyte Z97X-SOC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Right, so I'm about to style up my computer: I'm going to paint my 280x toxic to match the color on my motherboard, buy some nice black/orange cable extensions and now I'm looking for a case that could work well with all this stuff, I was looking at the NZXT H440 but the orange/black variant they have of the case doesn't really look like the right orange.

Yeah so changing the color scheme and spray painting the motherboard isn't really an option after seeing Linus' venture with it, and I'm guessing it'd be pretty hard to spray paint the H440 unless you can take apart the case without undoing rivots and what-not. 

Any suggestions guys?

Here are the extensions I was looking at as well.

Get a case that is all black in cause you keep it when you upgrade down the road. I know @Lays has a Air 540 with that same board.

The Silent Base 800 has no side panel window so whatever the new case was (Base 600?) would be better as it does.

I think the orange on my Phantom 410 matches it more.

Well, I actually found out that taking apart the H440 is pretty easy (http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/171125-first-mod-ever-painting-nzxt-h440/), so I'm probably going to take it apart, sand it off, put some primer on it and then paint it in some sexy orange.

Yeah ti seems that the trim pieces on NZXT cases are REALLY easy to get to. Planning a mod based on that too. :ph34r:

Yeah I'm just going to slowly make this computer look appealing, might do some watercooling later on.  ;)
