The Wraith

This project was a LOT of fun. Thanks to an artist/chemist named Stuart Semple, the case, a Corsair Carbide Spec-01, will be painted a black that is so insanely black that it absorbs 99% of the light shown on it.
So go with me if you'll see, in the laaaaand of pure ima-gin-ashun...

Imagine trying to fumble around in the dark to turn this thing on! Ok it might not be that bad.. I don't know if painting the power switch would be a good idea lol!

For cooling this time, I went with UpHere fans and air cooling, because I've used their products before and I've had great results, not to mention the ARGB hub they make is one of the most comprehensive and easy to use that I've ever had the pleasure of working with.
