It's time for a new mod , this time with the help of some sponsors.

And all by myself.

This time a Coolermaster Stacker 830.

It's the only Nvidia SLI certified case there is.

Plans:

I want to chrome the whole case , with some black and uvplexi accents.

The lightning will be done by leds.

Watch the topic and you will see....

And here is the victim :P

It's a little dirty , but it was in Coolermasters stand on the Hardwareinfo days , so everybody needed to touch it:)

Let's start taking the case apart.

Before deanodizing and chroming it was very important that the case was clear of rivets and stuff , they all needed to go out , what a job :) But done.

This are the parts that stay black , or at least don't get chromed.

And this all will be chromed , a bunch of parts. :)

Maybe I can translate it for you? :P

But why did you get a black 830, maybe a silver 830 was better in the first place?

Color didn't matter , both cases are anodized , so from both cases the anodizing has to go off , for the chrome to stay on.
