Well I just started on a project to revive the old FX-60 and make it fresh. I kind of want to keep it a surprise till the end, but... here's some teasers anyways. Sorry about the low quality. My main camera decided not to work anymore.




Plenty more to come, but it'll take some time because I'm one of those perfectionists type.

Just finished the last spray and now it's onto the clear-coats. Should have it assembled tomorrow if all goes well in the clear coat process. Depends if I get picky on some extra details or not.

I'm thinking about doing something with my heatsink, but I dunno. See how it looks tomorrow sitting in the case. Might need some chrome to offset the gold. It's really bright to look at though, haha. Might have to get fans without LEDs...

Alrighty folks, get ready to exceed your bandwidth, the pictures are here! SOrry for having so much, but I kind of wanted to show the progress; then again I felt I still needed more pictures haha.


















Still have to cable tie everything once I pull the motherboard and redo my standoffs because something isn't grounded properly. Ahh well...

BTW, let's see if anyone can guess my motivation behind the black and gold colours. The Americans out there should be able to guess this one, hahaha

Look like the Saints have a very dedicated fan here... haha!! I actually looks really good!! I thought you were going to paint the top of the case gold too.. that might have been overkill but it really turned out well!!!

Haha, not quite the Saints I was going after, but you're ont he right "track". I was going for the John Player's Special colour scheme when Mario Andretti was racing and winning with them and Lotus at the Indy 500. I was thinking about going all gold, but same thing, I figured it would be overkill. I'd like to totally chrome something right out. That was my initial thought for this, but then I saw the gold beside it figured, why not. They also had "Ruby Red".

But hey, you guys had me inspired, and I'll post back with some lighted shots now that I got rid of that grounding issue. 2 gaming computers in a row with me for grounding.

So once again, thanks fellas for doing your thing, which caused me to do my thing.

Alrighty, here we go with it in operation. The back side is still off so I can let the cables warm up so they're easier to bend to get the panel back on.






And then some zip-tie and all done.
