Step 4 - Back on the Aspros Train at full speed! (ordering parts and finishing before this Wed.)
Well a turn of events with the Elektron Mod, such as going full watercooling and having a custom res made and other things have forced me to finish the Aspros Mod before PDX Lan so I can bring it with.
So here is where I stand right now on the building process.
This is where the mod stands right now. Lots of work in a short amount of time needs to be done. Lots of panels and lots of parts have been ordered to finish it up.
This is the PSU from NZXT I am going to use in this mod. This means a total redo of all the cables, OEM sleeving plus extensions for the whole unit. I decided to use this PSU instead as it matches the overall scheme much better and NZXT was kind enough to send it to me.
I have also decided to use these Bitfenix fans due to having to purchase 2 new 200mm fans and a rad for the front.
Bitfenix was kind enough to send me these for Mod the North but they did not come in time, so I had to put them to good use!
Here is why I decided to purchase new fans and a rad for the front. The NZXT 200mm fan is not an actual 200mm, its more like 190mm on the mounting holes so I had to switch to the Bitfenix fans so I could mount the hard to find rad.
Here you can see the ammount of work that needs to be done to the custom motherboard tray. Lots of dremeling and work needs to be finished up for me to be able to use it.
