Description

Bought a Meshify C and a deep blue colored front Mesh, assuming the top mesh would be provided with it, in same color. As it wasn't and I disliked the amount of black inside the case I decided to plastidip the innards of the case and lacquer-spray the front and top meshes, PCIe brackets, and most screws.

Messed up by buying the deepcool neptwin, as the first fan doesnt have enough clearance above the RAM, so it sticks out a bit. If I move the fan to the back of the cooler, it interferes with the motherboard module on the back, but sticks out less. If I upgrade to 32Gig I will have to move it there though.

Probably will move the GPU powercables to the upper slot to use them against the sag a bit.

The leds on the motherboard don't go to full white but stay pink in back, so that's unfortunate. Will probably have to move them a bit more of a blue'ish tone, similar to the RAM (which also cant seem to go full white).

If you don't need built in KVM switch or USB-C there's a 345B1C version as well with dual HDMI + Displayport.

This build is absolutely gorgeous. Have you had any issues with the RX 5700XT with heavier gameplay? I run the same cpu and gpu combo and recently my fan doesn't spin up under heavy load. Curious to know what settings you are running for your gpu.

Stock settings, doesn't spin up cause I keep going to black screen before even reaching heavy loads :( Trying older drivers now, to see if it resolves things.

I know this was a couple weeks ago but what edition of drivers did you find that work? I recently updated mine to 20.2.2 and have been having issues.

I love the white. Its the same aesthetic I'm aiming for in my new build. How do you go about painting a case to get that full white concept?

I removed everything that was possible (fans, rubber cableslots, PCIe protectors) then taped off the inside everywhere (see 6th picture) and just sprayed from a can (plastidip).

The front mesh can be taken apart quite easily, so you end up with just the mesh. That one, the PCIe protectors and the top mesh I sprayed with regular white paint. The PCIe protector screws, and the screws holding the window I pushed into a piece of cardboard, so the thread wouldn't get painted, only the heads.

With the meshes, don't overspray, let it dry between coats. My top mesh I was a bit too impatient and some of the holes filled up with paint as there was too much of it. So I had to poke the paint out of them, which took me about as much time as the rest of the paint job.

Awesome! Thanks for the insight. When I read plastidip initially I thought it was some sort of like vat style painting and thought welp thats out of my wheelhouse but I can totally do from a can.

It's so white!!! I feel like I am making dirty just looking at it! Clean build. How do you like the 5700 so far?

Now that the drivers are fixed, its running smooth.

Nice. what driver were you running? Mine crashed running Unigine Heaven in ultra with an MSI pre-loaded OC setting (not a good pre-load for benchmarking) but other than that it seems fine. Made a few minor cosmetic upgrades recently and I have a GPU support on the way too, the sag is really annoying me. Added some pics. I know i need to dress up the extensions a little, the 24 pin is too long so i am going to have to tear it down and shorten it.
