a project? smile.gif

Great to hear that business is going well though. thumb.gif

Yea, what really slowed this down was moving - I had all the panels slated to be done in Brookings, well when we moved I had to pack it all away for a while as getting our house up and ready was more important.... then came the LC Store. haha

Hehe, such is life. Moving can be such a huge pain in the rear IME. Between 2007 and 2011
I moved three times (which might not be that much for some people, but that also included
my dad and all of his stuff, which is a lot since he's self-employed and runs two businesses),
primarily due to my parents' divorce and me and my dad not finding a suitable place for quite
a while.

In 2010~2011 I lived at my grandma's for a year while my dad moved in with his GF and her
family. Now don't get me wrong, my grandma is a fantastic lady who lives in a nice and cozy
house, and I certainly never lacked for anything while living with her. But since I knew that
I'd be moving again once we'd found a suitable place and there wasn't all that much spare
space in her house with lots of our things being in temporary storage there, I couldn't really
unpack much of my stuff and my life got kinda put in pause for a year.

The fact that my health was rather uncooperative for most of that time certainly wasn't helpful
either; something you, too, are much more familiar with than you'd like to be I suspect. frown.gif

Although, all things considered, your store did come online just at the right time when I was
finally able to get going again, so there's at least that. biggrin.gif

Haha, yea the back surgeries were right in the middle of all of this as well. But all aside - I have the Elektron, Ash Mod, Aspros, Xylo (wood and copper) and yet another in the pipeline that is getting parts so I have a full table of mods ready to go. I have most everything for most of them just need to set aside the time to do them which will be easier now with LC being full time for me. Not to mention a slew of product reviews that will be pouring out from LC here soon! -wink-

Thanks for subbing, I am finishing up a sponsored mod and a customer mod before I can get back to this but it is very close to being done. thumb.gif

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.

1 x XSPC 140mm Radstand - Universal 140mm Radiator Stand (XSPC-RADSTAND-140) = $13.95
1 x EK-ANTI-Cyclon X-Res (EK-ANTICYCLON-XRES) = $3.49
2 x Bitfenix Alchemy Connect 6 LED Light Strip - 120mm - White (BFA-ACL-12WK6-RP) = $23.98
5 x E22 Fan Stickers - 30mm - White (4 Pack) (E22-STICKER-30-WH) = $12.45
2 x E22 Fan Stickers - 37mm - White (4 Pack) (E22-STICKER-37-WH) = $4.98
4 x E22 Bending Cord For 12/10mm Tubing (E22-BENDING-CORD) = $11.80
10 x E22 Clear Extruded Acrylic Tubing - 12/10mm - 50cm (E22-TUBE-12-10-50) = $45.00
3 x SNAP-CAP Screw Caps - Pack of 10 - Black (8/8-180) = $5.97
3 x SNAP-CAP Screw Caps - Pack of 10 - White (8/8-100) = $5.97
10 x 6-32 x 1 Black Oxide Steel Philips Panhead - Set of 4 (PAN-632-1-BK) = $9.90
10 x 6-32 x 1.25 Black Oxide Steel Button Head Socket Cap - Set of 4 (BUTTON-632-125-BK) = $19.90

Here is the parts I had to order to finish the Aspros. I have a ton of fittings for E22 hard line tubing and a ton of other small items to finish off this mod are all send 1day shipping for me to be able to finish this mod. I have a a good 3 days of no sleep ahead of me to finish this mod.

PLEASE wish me luck and this is quite an undertaking.... even for me!
