    Default CM Centurion 5 Mod - Untitled so far

    FINALLY getting my new computer together, and I decided upon a basic case mod for my new CM Centurion 5 case. I am going to cut a window out, and a black and white paint theme with some blue accents to match the MOBO. I plan on doing something with the front of the case as well, that is still in the idea phase though, so more to come on that.

    Anyway... on to the undressing of the case:

    Coolermaster Centurion 5








    My son getting in on the action lol.




    Naked. mmm.


    Primer.


    oops, I made a mistake. lol


    Oh look, a present for me!!



    Patriot Sector 7 6gb DDR3
    Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD3R Board

    gonna go great with my i7-960. I have the Cool-IT Vantage I won to cool the CPU. I just need to get a SSD for the system.

    one more coat of primer is going to be needed to fix the mistakes I made with the first two coats lol, and then on to the black and white paint job.

    the top and side panels need to be sanded and primed as well, but I am going to cut out the side window first. More to come soon!

    Got the priming done, just gotta sand and lay on the first coats. I hope I can get the paint job I have in my head done on the inside of the case. gonna be hard to get it just right, but will look awesome if it works out!

    Too bad it is waaay to windy to paint today

    Its better to seek perfection than rushing things bro, so sand it again if you have any imperfections and if you need any help on any painting let me know via PM, I am known for my techniques and knowledge on the subject! Mod on man I am watching!

    Thanks for the support man! your mods are awesome and I may just take you up on the offer for advice! I haven't had time to get anything done on this just yet, but I do have a few days off next week and hope to get at least the base coat on the guts of the case done. I would also like to get the window cut in the side panel as well.

    Got work done on this today.. not as much as I wanted to but oh well.


    Cutting out cable management on the motherboard tray. probably should have done this before priming the case, oh well I needed to do a coat or two more anyway.


    Filing half done, I forgot to take a shot of it all filed will do that next update


    Base coat started on the drive cages. (if you look closely you can see the taping job for the two tone color I am crossing my fingers and hoping I can get right. lol)



    Got some sanding to do before the next coat lol.


    and a little teaser for my next update... whats that? warranty?? what is that?
