This is what it started out as. You can see how much light it reflects compared to it being done.
apart from color correction, there isn't any photoshopping going on. the light SERIOUSLY gets eaten up like a black hole.
As you can see, too, there are ZERO cable combs. not one where it's visible. No zip ties either. Also the GPU cable doesn't sag at all.
and no, i didn't use wire.
....which makes stuff like this stick out really well in the light that DOES hit it.
Once again, no cable combs.
with the help of this stuff, this pc is going to disappear.
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. PART ONE
