so i know its been a while but persanal things put life on hold lol nonethe less after getting distracted by League Of Legends for an hour or so DSC00169.jpg
and my t3's wore down a bit i decided to get my ass in gear and start up again
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
so i took some mesurements of my new 24 inch hires screens DSC00176.jpg
then i realised i needed a 360 of my setup to mesuare it better so i moved on over to the bedroom

next up i cut my peices and made a prelim mock up of the stand

next up i setup my wc gear to ensure its all working


my waterpumps are great to bad one of them doesnt work... im gonna have to rip it apart adn see whats up

so for control i purchased a nzxt mesh fancontroller. supposed to do 30w per channel so ch1 is for one rad 2 is for the second 3 is for the third 4th is for the pumps and 5 is gonna be for the lighting biggrin.gif

also picked up a switch in a trade (gotta ship that out now) gonna throw that in teh rig as my deskmod is gonna be a hub biggrin.gif

kinda hard to see but i put some custom wires in there just mock up atm but its gonna make runing the fan wires so much easier

we painted and added a fan to help the psu from over heating. This was my dads idea but we cut the hole so perfect that i dont need anythign but physics to hole the 90mm fan in place biggrin.gif
ill be updating this again gonna snap some more pics
