All the pieces fasten to an L piece of acrylic that I have the CNC machine. All I have to do is tap the holes and away it goes. Securing the entire case takes less than half an hour, probably do it in 5 minutes if you had a allen key bit attached to a power drill to screw in the bolts.

I'm still designing some of the pieces so work on the physical side of things has come to somewhat of a stand still for now, that will change soon smile.gif

At 2133mhz it probably isn't the most overclockable RAM but we have a RAM block so we will certainly be trying!

Me and a mate of mine decided to have a go at sleeving with paracord. It's actually quite nice to work with and I've found some other decent uses for it as well around the home.

I took the computer apart again for a final polish down, you'll notice some goodies as well smile.gif The Asus Rampage 4 Extreme and another 6990. All I need to do now is justify the 700AUD that CPU costs and we can make gravy.

The 6990 will be watercooled smile.gif

That is one sexy motherboard smile.gif I will be doing a full review of it once I get it up and running. Anyone know a RAM block for the dominators that will work either side of the dimms?

Also if you are wondering, got the paracord from extac. Seems reasonable enough, sure as hell cheaper than any other sleeve.

It's the base of the case and yes that's an EKWB radiator with S frame Noiseblockers. Besides costing a small fortune, S-frames are all nice and rubbery, the actual fan doesn't touch the frame and whilst on, you can't actually hear them.

Ikea would be proud. Now I just need to name it something inspiring like "Lack". I have two of the "lack" tables from Ikea, great value because they inflate every year with moisture and it's almost like I'm getting a free size upgrade.

Horrible photo although at the time I had some unique space constraints.

360mm at the bottom, 360mm at the top and 6 Fans. Airflow is most certainly no issue here!

Just waiting on some EKWB Dominator X4's, a top watercooled mosfet and a 6990 waterblock and backplate!
