Decisions on PC Case as a gift

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I am giving my old computer to my nephew as a graduation present.

I decided to paint the case, to make it unique & something more meaningful than just going out and buying something.

The case is the Cooler Master Cosmos 1000 & here it is after most of the painting is done.

My question (and why this is in HH) is what color should I do on the railings ?

Also, should I keep it, and just get him the case he said he wanted, the Corsair one that looks like an ammo box ?

As you can see I only half-ass painted the top rails, and havent painted the bottom.

I dont want to mess with it right now if I should go get him what he asked for instead of giving him something he might think is lame as hell.. :s

Below is the case he asked for:

Don't know your nephew - does he appreciate custom work like this? Show him some custom cases and try to get his feelings on it. If he digs it, definitely work on the case. If npt, just get him what he asks for.

 

Regardless, you should finish that case!

Hes a hard one to judge - there is the sensible side, and I would think he would like anything - regardless.  Then there is the booger-eating moron side with tattoos & death metal & the only way the case would be cool is if it bleeds or something... and I could totally see that side of him going "uuhhhh dude - orange is gay" or something like that hehe

Thanks man !  Thats nice of you to say - this is my 1st time to paint anything - so it took me all weekend - and the reason I showed that particular pic was so you couldnt see the slight screw ups :blush:  LOL
