Hey guys, thought I´d share the progress of my virgin Hackintosh project, so here are a few pics and a bit of info. I knew I wanted something different from my Mac Pro, but every case I found seemed like a cheap knock-off or had zero charisma whatsoever. After a loooong search, I finally fell in love with a case for my project; the Corsair Vengeance C70 Army Green. It´s a military themed case to begin with, but as I began to unpack the ingredients for my build, I got more and more displeased with the standard look. I felt the case deserved something more. Since I just don´t have the time to spend weeks on a custom mod, I pulled out my paints and SFX materials to give it a quick overhaul. No new parts or radical changes on the case itself; just a paintjob. Since I am addicted to zombies and old, weathered materials I knew it had to look old and rusty. Probably like something from a secret military nuclear test facility. On top of that I wanted to integrate something personal - both for fun and to make the machine a bit less attractive for potential thieves. The build itself is by NO stretch of the imagination an attempt to compete with the really cool modders out there. I just wanted to get a more personal look in a minimal amount of time. As I write this, the main case is drying, and I still need to add a few details to the front. Meanwhile you can take a look at where I am right now. More pics will follow as I move along. The effect process is pretty simple: 1) I spray a coat of brown on most of the area 2) Dip a yarn/string-like material into gold, black and copper colors 3) Apply unevenly, smudge a bit, let it dry - repeat if necessary One of the case sides after a coat of SFX gold A few close-ups of the paintwork. I apologize if the images are turned the wrong way - for some reason the uploading function turns all images into landscape orientation.
