Extreme Prometeia Case Painting Service

Conclusion

Conclusion

Without a doubt, changing the colour of your PC case from the usual drab black or silver is the single biggest way to make your system stand out from the rest.

Extreme Prometeia have taken the effort and expense out of respraying your case by providing an affordable and quality powder coating service to anyone looking for an extreme way of changing the looks of their PC.

Priced at £90 (Excl. VAT) for powder coating the exterior of your case or £130 for both the interior and exterior, powder coating is certainly a more affordable than traditional spray painting and anodising and yet still produces excellent results. More information about EP-UK's powder coating service can be found here.


Pro's
+ Excellent results.
+ Choice of a wide range of colours.
+ Cheaper than any other methods.
+ Fast turnaround.
+ Great customer service.

Con's
- Jealousy from other PC enthusiasts!
- Slight 'Orange Peel' effect common to powder coating.

Outside of the case is 90 (excl VAT). You can have the inside+outside done for a little bit more, and can even have them in different colours

Hi there I'm not too sure but I think I have something wrong with my IE7 browser, the only pictures I can see on the review are the ones with the box with the parts covered in bubble wrap, are there other pictures and if so any idea what's stopping me viewing them?

Thanks

If I didn't have to toally deconstruct my case to get it done, I would get the interior painted

I can see the pictures on page 2 in the box with bubble wrap but no pictures on page 3.

Page 2 has all the pics on it. I just checked in IE and it's fine.

Maybe clear your cache and refresh?

very nice job but is it only me that thinks the 90 + VAT is a little expensive?

For that price I'd have a go myself with aerosols, laquer and wet n dry.

Compared with other sites its very cheap (i've seen 200+ for a spray job). Also dont forget this is powder coating and not painting - you can take a hammer to this paint job and it won't chip.

Powder coating and 2 Pack are probably the hardest wearing paints period. Definitely very hard to scratch/chip, as opposed to regular enamel. Jim has motivated me now to get mine done, although, I may go the 2 pack road because I don't have access to a baking oven and it requires less layers.

Please do tell what color ur thinking of mate... Or possible start a thread putting it to a vote perhaps?

yeah I really dunno mate, because my new build is going to be light on with the case bling. An external and internal paint job will prevent it being just another aluminium 830 stacker. My project is called AquAus, but I don't want a horrid aqua colour...I hate aqua rofl. I'll have a look at some colour charts and put it to a forum vote on the the ones I really like.
