No, I had a shop powdercoat it for me. It's a decent watercooling case, definately not the best especially for the price. There are easier cases to water cool for lower cost(810 switch). But it's pretty good if you plan to mod it and add room for a rad up front or simply buy a 200m phobya radiator. My temps are really good (35c max load on my OC'd 7950).

I am looking at getting two XFX Double D 7870's this coming week, would a SeaSonic X-650 watt PSU be enough to run them at full load?
i5 2500k @ 4.5GHz (40c max load)
7950 w/ EK block 1000mhz overclock(38c max load)
Asus p8Z77 pro board
silverstone strider 600w
XSPC RX240 and EX240 rad
Gelid wing fans
XSPC w/ D5 res combo
Crucial m4 64gb, 1tb WD black and 500gb WD blue
The fans are gelid wing blue UV
Im happy with the temps, but this build took me so long to build(due to buying parts over time instead of just all at once, that im already thinnking about my next build I want a TJ11. Oh well
They suggest a 700 watt PSU, a 650 SeaSonic gold X series should be fine doing it. But frankly, the way I see it, they kinda pushed the watts up, I mean you see in the picture, the card was pulling like 115 watts, then to say you need 700 watts for two is just silly.
Seems at load the whole system with one 7870 was only 310~ watts. Frankly, I bet you could even power the GHz edition with a 650 watt.
I'm still waiting for stuff to arrive from MDPC-X, which includes a bunch of sleeves (family packs plus some colors), tools and... screws. I want the screws that keep the rads mounted to be properly black, rather than keeping the somewhat quirky looking copper screws and nickel-plated washers...
So meanwhile, I'm just snapping pictures of the case and stuff. I remembered just earlier today that the case has those LEDs for the rear IO, and also realized they weren't exactly shielded or hidden from view within the case... In fact, they're pretty much exposed.
Damn nice camera shot drunken. Which case is this 600T? You have been building quite a few systems. I want to start a new build so bad, so many ideas

This case is the NZXT Switch 810 I received a few days ago. Not sure what I think of it yet though. Pretty solid idea, but some bits and bobs are rather quirky.
Like the first 5.25" slot is a separate 'cage' from the other 5.25" slots...
And holy crap do the glossy "piano finish" plastic get dirty.
The case appears to be quite... frail.
I may do a couple bits of modding to the case, but it seems to require fairly little for it. Maybe it would be useful to consider adding a few support beams of thicker steel, cut the plate separating the 5.25" slots in one spot, and I'm inclined to have the plastic bits that gather dust like mad painted with a coating that is less dust-attracting.
Most of this can be done independently of the contents of the case, so they shouldn't hinder me building the computer as soon as I get my MDPC stuff. :E
