  1. Hello all, Having just finished my 900D high-end build, I have begun the planning phase of my newest build. This is a budget build that I am doing for a Boys' Home in New Orleans. The theme (and I'm sure that this will not please NFL fans in other cities) is going to be a black and gold NO Saints build. This is particularly easy given the black/gold color scheme of ASUS' most recent line of MB's. A brief outline of the parts I have decided on so far: MB: Asus A88X-PRO APU: A10-6800K GPU: None RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (CMZ8GX3M2B1600C9G) SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB HDD: 2x300GB WD Green Drives that I took from old machines PSU: Corsair RM 450W I have narrowed down my chassis selection to 2 options: Corsair Obsidian 450D Mid-Tower Phanteks Enthoo Pro Full-Tower Which of these two chassis would you recommend? The price is comparable, and I am familiar with Corsair's Obsidian Line; however, I am leaning toward the Phanteks because it gets praise from reviewers, it comes with a psu cover and hdd cage plate, and because it looks quite nice; however, I am worried that -- since this is a budget build with an APU rather than a GPU+CPU -- the system may look empty in a full-tower chassis vs a mid-tower. I also am not so sure I like the way that the Phanteks panel windows are laid out, but I cannot judge this without having seen the case. I am leaning toward the Phanteks chassis, but I am open to suggestions for the 450D or any other case. My second question is about gold spray paint. Can someone recommend a good gold metallic spray paint for my custom painted parts and components? I typically use automotive quality spray paint, and I prefer enamel based over lacquer for the durability. I can use a lacquer paint, but I hate having to apply clear enamel as I am inept at doing so evenly. Obviously I need the paint to match the gold on the MB, so that is really of paramount importance. Thanks for any advice on these two issues, Carson
  2. Hey there guys 'n gals, I just wanted to drop by again and show you my latest PC case review. I've more coming very soon as well, but this is my latest. Thanks for checking it out, and I'd appreciate any feedback you may have, either on here, on the article and/or on the YouTube video. *thumbs up* Article url: http://www.dragonblogger.com/review-deepcool-pangu-v2-sw-pc-case Btw, I actually have 2 of this case, and my son wants 1 of them for his PC, so the Warhammer mod I was going to do last year is now being changed up a lot and done with 1 of these cases. We're both very excited for it, and when I start the post on there, I'll let y'all know. Hopefully it'll be very soon though. Anyway... Oh yes, before I forget, our good pal Iggy "Zangza" Castillo also did a review and build-in with the Corsair Obsidian 450d as well: http://www.dragonblogger.com/unboxing-and-how-to-build-a-pc-using-a-corsair-obsidian-450d/ so check that out too, please, if you're interested. It really is done quite well and is very informative.
