Extreme Prometeia Case Painting Service

The Final Result

The Final Result

The estimated turnaround for most powder coating jobs is 5 days providing everything goes without a hitch. Unfortunately my case was subject to a couple of issues that held up the powder coating process. The mesh window seen on page #1 which was installed by another case modification website had been held in place with glue, going against my wishes to have it held in place with screws. This meant that the panel could not be powder coated as the glue would have melted during the baking process, ruining the powder coated finish.

After arranging for a new side panel to be sent to Extreme Prometeia, everything progressed swiftly and in 4 days, the following package arrived on my doorstep....

Obviously intent on putting my packaging job to shame, EP-UK went to the extra effort of padding out the box with numerous air cushions to make absolutely sure that none of the panels would rattle around during transit.

It wasn't long before I'd emptied the box and ripped all of the packaging off. So without further ado...the money shots..

The colour and cover of the panels was in a word: Excellent. You may notice a slight 'Orange Peel' effect on the surface of the panels, but this is purely down to the nature of Powder Coating. What you need to remember is that Powder Coating is MUCH more durable than any other kind of painted finish, and is ideal for computer cases which are likely to take the odd knock or scratch during their travels to LAN parties.

Putting the case back together it was clear to see that I'd made the right choice with the colour. The black front contrasts great against the bright red paintwork. You may be wondering why I don't currently have a plexiglass window on my side panel..well its currently away at EP-UK being modded to accept a 7" touchscreen TFT! Maybe I'm slightly biased, but I love the new look of this case. Why don't you let me know your opinions in our forums?

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 Quote

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?

ThanksQuote
