    Exclamation Help finding best PINK PC case

    My daughter's B-day is 5/5. I waited 2-1/2 weeks for a special case (unpainted raw aluminum) and when I got it I was so disappointed that I won't even get it powdercoated now...

    I think I have located all the pink cases available but I was hoping that someone here might have a link for a nice one.

    I need to order and overnight the case today so I can make my deadline. Fast help would be much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Sure you've done this but:

    Can't just get whatever case you want and sandblast and powder coat it? Or you don't have time to do so? Guy around here will blast and coat a case in a single color for $30.

    Good Luck with this one! I was searching for something similar for the grandkids ... this is the best I could come up with (but haven't ordered it yet).

    (I'm sure you already scoped out the ones on Newegg ... but posting this just in case. It's supposedly steel, so better than the plastic ones)

    My PC guys have the special order powder on hand but turnaround is going to be tight. I would be biting my fingers off wondering if they could get it turned around in time. The plan was to bring the raw case I got today there today and then it would still be tight. Thanks though.

    Yeah I've searched and searched but I appreciate the link.

    I'm not entirely thrilled with the case I got but I'll make it work.

    Thanks!

    Just curious, which case was it? (the dissappointing one)

    Oh, if you had gone with mATX this might have worked out good:

    That's a neat case. But it's gotta be a pink waterputer...

    I'm not bashing the case I just got...it's just frustrating me. Frankly it's better than all those other options...I've taken it apart to inspect it more closely and it's not the design that frustrates me, it's the last details that don't meet up with my expectations. Maybe I just expect too much...

    You could always do something to "delay" the date but build the excitement for her too. Like set up a scavenger hunt that will take a few days so by the time she finishes you can have the case built how you want it

    Well I decided to roll with the PC Design Labs QV2E I received this morning. The powdercoat was supposedly ordered weeks ago but apparently not so I can't get it coated until THURSDAY...yikes...



    Maybe I'll go with a "My Little Pony" theme since it looks like a barn

    Because I own tools...not toys

    But thanks for the link.

    A common household oven cannot maintain a steady temp like the big railroad car sized ovens the facilities use. The little gun and the easy bake method might work for smaller items...but not large flat panels...

    CD, here is a build link that some guy did for his fiancee. Not sure if it will help, but maybe some ideas.

    it's a same that the time is tight, I think Abee had some pink cases. But they cost a small horse and you'd have to find someone to ship it. .
