Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here I'll show you a Cosmos S casemod where I'm going to spray paint the case in two colors. This is the first time I spray paint a case so bear with me. I'm going for a red with matte black combo. I also want to change the standard side panel to one with a window.

RAM: 8GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ8GX3M2A1600C7R

In the mean time I changed the VGA's on the picture for the GTX 680 and I removed the power bracket with molex and fan connecters and the blue leds on the bottom. But no new pics yet!

I also did my keyboard in the same colors in camo:
