    Now all I have to do is desolder and resolder 34 of them...

    Have a bunch of updates coming, I don’t really know the costs to be honest but the hardware was already owned so not sure I’d count that :)

    Currently the case is stripped bare and been modified, probably going to send it and parts for powder coating just deciding on colour choice. Radiators now all refinished white and there is a pile of 32 fans desoldered ready to resolder and braid on my desk... terrible job awaits but also finishing my apartment renovation so bit slow progress!

    Where do you send it for coating? Is it very expensive?

    Two questions I will be getting answers for, seems to be a few places locally within a few miles and given it’s small parts I hope not too expensive - will let you know when I get as far as that ;)

    Also interested to find out. On my last build I searched ages for a company to anodise some heatsinks. WhenI finally found someone who would take on such a small job, the price was very reasonable :)

    Yeah I think powder coating should be ok, need to finish some more mods on the chassis then I’ll ask. Literally 2 miles up the road there is one which looks decent.

    Quoted roughly £75 from somewhere up the road gents, colour choice to be confirmed but I’m coating the chassis and removable metal probably smooth gloss with metallic.

    The tray and new res mount will then be covered by a Matt black thing sheet. Metallic grey/colour... thoughts?

    Thanks for the update. I don't know what the picture in your head looks like so I can't comment on the colours. I'm sure you've got something in mind and i imagine it will all come together nicely, so i say just go with your gut and do what you want.

    Looking forward to seeing it!

    Edit - metallic grey would certainly match the metal theme of the build you mentioned in the op.
