I painted my Antec 900 today. It now has Red innards...

Case stripped as far as it can be without removing the rivets.

About half way through the first coat

Note the feet were masked off to keep them A) black and B) from rubbing paint onto my carpet.

DSC00168.jpg

Further into the coating (probably about the 2nd coat)

DSC00169.jpg

DSC00170.jpg

Note the slightly orange tinge.... eww...

DSC00171.jpg

To counteract the orange tinge i did a very light coat of black paint, and flecked on more black by not shaking the can prior to painting.

(it looks a bit orange in this picture, but it isn't really)

DSC00174.jpg

Flecking on the back I/O area.

DSC00176.jpg

Deep red colour has been successfully acheived.

My motherboard looks brilliant in there.

Side panel on.

Other side

Back I/O panel.

I also pugged up the large 200mm fan with Red Mesh Tulle.

And i put some more Tulle on the mesh on the side panel to make it more red.

So there is still a couple of other things I'm going to do to it. And my computer doesn't look too great when all the BLUE LED fans come on, as it neutralises the colour a hell of a lot. So i'll be replacing them soon.

What do you guys think?

Here's something I'm experimenting with. I got some black lights and glued some slinkies onto them that I got from one of those quarter machines at the dollar store. I also stuck them on my round cables which glow bright but for some reason doesn't show up in the pictures. Maybe it was the quick click drowning it? What's something fun I can do with more of my slinkies?

Motherboard - some crap foxconn one upgrade comin soon

That's why i bought the motherboard. The reviews are wrong, Foxconn suck. Really.

Most of the features that the display box mention are not actually included, or completely inaccessable, or useless.

Heres one, in order to get a good overclock, i've had to update my BIOS, you wouldn't think thats a problem but it really, really is, as the program they use for BIOS updates SUCKS and they give no alternative. After succesfully updating, i was able to push my overclock a bit further, however, it resets the BIOS to the older version after you restart (as in, boot up in to windows for the first time after saving from BIOS).

They really, really, really suck. Trust me, i've had endless problems with it.

I concur, Foxconn generally make poor motherboards. The fact that Foxconn produces components that are present on 99% of motherboards and systems is irrelevant.

Well... Its a good quiality build motherboard, its just chinese crap when it comes to everything else is all... Even the instruction manual has grammatical and spelling errors that could have EASILY been sorted out.

Oh but you get that all the time. I think most components and peripherals from asia have laughable english. I don't suppose they do quality control there.

You can't trust everything that you read.

I, until today have been building computers for 3 years now, building alot with Winfast motherboards, although they are not the top daddys, they are very good motherboards.

Well this was just plain guerilla. The price was close to most trusted brands, the reviews said it was good, the website said it was good, it had good features, a good but plain bundle... Little did i know it was intirely made with Chinese pride....
