Finally was able to take pictures of my third shipment that arrived today. FTW PC Sleeving/Heatshrink samples, Sidewinder Computers Tubing samples, and XSPC DDC Acetal Top.
The FTW PC sleeving is great! I love the quality of this compared to the stuff I got from Frozen CPU. It doesn't fray, is really easy to use, and it was really easy to string a wire right through it. Now I just have to wait for them to get a grey/silver in stock so I can order the sleeving to do my PSU.
After looking at the tubing samples I'm going to have to go with 1/4" ID, 3/8" OD. Now I can go ahead and order both my tubing and compression fittings
Does anybody have thoughts on going with a solid grey/silver tubing vs a clear tubing? Is it better to go with a clear one so I can make sure it stays clear and everything looks ok (no growths, etc)?
Getting all the water cooling parts in unfortunately it's looking like it won't all fit inside the NES case like I had hoped. I have two options that I can think of right away, if anybody else has thoughts on what I can do please let me know
Option 1) Extend the back of the case out like Robert did in his build, or Option 2) Stack an N64 or SNES on top of the NES to look like it's just sitting on top like normal and use the extra height for the reservoir, PSU, and HDDs to clear up room for everything else in the NES (this would mean somehow affixing the two cases together).

I also started dremeling out the NES case. I still have to figure out something to do to flatten the bottom of it. Perhaps cut out the raised area and then bondo it back in place flat with the rest of the bottom of the case? I'll gladly take suggestions here, too.
