    HAF X - Camo project

    Hi All,

    I am looking at starting to modify my HAF X case with a new paint job, new side window and a few other misc bits inside.

    My idea is to paint the HAF X in blue sky camo, I was orginally going to do red camo but the Mrs won't allow it as the room the PC sits in is blue! :bang:

    The main question I have is what colour should I use for my WC tubing?

    I will also be adding a new 240mm rad along side my RX360, new fans (painted), new laing D5 pump with EK top, and a new res.

    I am looking to start this project in the next 2 weeks.

    Thanks
    Steve

    I'd vote for blue or white.

    Ye I want thinking white or blue, the only thing that puts me off blue is most people have it and the only thing with white is it doesnt react to uv etc

    Sounds good I am expecting to see some great colors on that case just make sure you throw some adhesive primer before I did a HAF 932 Years ago and had to redo the side panel because of that mistake.:bang:

    Otherwise will we be seeing some awesome pictures in the future?

    I'll be posting a build log along with pictures of each stage. Weather is crap in england atm though so the spraying maybe a little delayed :(
