Like the color - it isn't pumpkin orange like some boxes I've seen. It's got a little more fire to it (metalflake?)

And I don't like being a punctuation Nazi, but your posts are *really* hard to parse when you use no caps and no punctuation. At least use periods. Please?

=========================

Ideas:

Here are a few stickers you might want to use, or perhaps incorporate these designs into the build.
Note that you can order these in different sizes, from small to very large.

Thanks guys, I've already looked into doing a logo on the back panel. Also looking into seeing if I can make a stencil and airbrush it on or I might go the vynl route.

Thank you. MUCH easier to read. Yeah, I'm a grumpy old fart. Just ask my wife, especially the fart.... Smile

Gov - you shouldn't feel bad. When I'm in a mood I correct people's grammar and spelling IN GAME.

Love the orange color. Instantly thought "The Division" - no joke.

Update Reply with quote
So after staring at the paint for awhile, I've decided that that she of orange is to close to high visibility orange. Now I I brought it to bare metal , I will be either painting it purple that will color shift to orange and then doing division logos in a checker pattern over the color shift paint. I've also thought of doing a solid dark color with the division logo air brushed onto the front. Pic as follows.

Modifying the zalman resirator today I did the high flow pump mod also will be installing an extra long peace of tubing inside the res so the the hot water is being sent to the top and immediately ducked back into the case witch was a common issue with this water cooling setup also since I'm using a low power chip in a core i7 6700t this setup will be over kill until I install a gpu water block
