    Project: ______RESURREKTION______

    This is a resurrection of a personal project I started years ago titled "Psychosis". Half way into it, I decided the P-1 era chassis wouldn't fit my vision. After reviewing CM's 912 basic, I figured I would "resurrect" the project and use the 912 chassis. This is a personal build, not be confused my Bio-Mechanical PC project which is still shelved until I've reached some decisions on it.

    Subb'd, epic!

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    Removing the TUF shield (The Ultimate Force) on the Asus Sabertooth P67 motherboard. It's fastened on with 8 screws on the back.











    You can install an optional "assistant" 50mm cooling fan that screws into the portal pictured above. The assistant fan is an optional component and doesn't come with the Sabertooth.
    Asus recommends mounting a CPU cooler that will blow airflow downward, toward the CPU socket.







    Using Heat gun to remove the sticker





    Using red Scotch brite pad to scuff surface of the TUF shield



    Applying Flat Black "Flexible" Primer for adhesion coat on plastic, before applying Matte Black Enamel Paint

    HDD'S do not operate in a vacuum. if you look at any of your drives you will see a small vent hole.

    you just need to be sure you are extra "clean" when you open one up. a HDD window mod is nothing new. Though this is by far the nicest implementation of one I have ever seen.

    sadly enough...it wouldn't be a first time that a teacher was wrong, one of the guys I had went to college with had started the IT program back when CD burners were first starting to come out, and the instructor had insisted that a CD burner was like a printer and had an ink cartridge that needed to be filled/changed

    although- back on topic... amazing work as always Bill

    Thanks for tuning and commenting guys. I wanted this build to be the 1st with "hand painted" artwork on the TUF shield, that reflects the theme I created on the chassis. So I enlisted my pro mod team member, Brad aka "Dirt" for his custom paint skills. When you deal with the volume of customer builds like I do, you need a team of helpers. When I started out 10 years ago, I did everything myself. Due to demand, it's gotten harder to do that...lol. I've introduced and featured Brad's paint work in the Mod Men web series. In return for this jobber, he asked that I take him out to dinner at Big Bowl with Knob Creek and Cokes, which is fine dining to us backwoods hicks. So, the cover for optional 50mm fan served as nice location for bio-mech skull taken from the front of the chassis. Brad chalked out general idea and location for the artwork. Other than using hand made square ribbon stencil and corsair 600T intake grill as a stencil, everything was painted off the cuff, freehand without stencils. Since ASUS was kind enuf to send me the p67, it's only proper that their logo gets incorporated into the artwork. (since I removed their stickers!) I'm also leaning toward anodizing their Green heatsinks Black...btw" Notice how the mb heatsink matches the Green paper on the table perfectly? coincidence or a warning to not change them?.... btw: You won't see the brown & tan gpu slots









    Don't pay $40 for professional airbrush stencils! Make your own, grab image online, edit in photochop, print it, then cut it yourself with Xacto knife.









    I just happen to have an intake grill from corsair 600T in my car...lol. It served as perfect stencil for airbrushing the mesh grid background. Otherwise Round Modders Mesh would have worked too!

    This Holiday weekend allowed me to forge forward! HD cover mounted, tried 5mm Green LEDs, but I'm thinking White would be better.
