After it’s all said and done, I had about $225.00 in paint and supplies. If I were to do this mod again (and well for future mods) I would not use spray paint. I’ll go back to painting with my paint gun. The process is similar but, I have more control over the material when using the spray gun.
The mod took 4th place but, I’m pretty happy with the way the mod turned out. The competition was pretty tough this year. Thanks to all the judges that helped judge the Staff vs. Staff contest.
There are however a couple of things that I will be changing. One I will be putting an LED heat spreader over the RAM to make it fit in a bit better. The second thing I want to do is sleeve the PWM cable from the Swiftech Maelstrom reservoir. Blue/green wire and a white connector stand out against a black motherboard. Final images are below.
I want to thank all of the sponsors again for participating in the Modders-Inc Staff vs. Staff Modding contest at Quakecon 2018.
