I have 2 barbs, and 2 compression fittings if need.
Also would like to thank you again for the fittings you sent over to me. They came in handy getting the loop completed!

Things are going good now
I had to take a little break from the forums, and most things electronic for a while. I felt like I was about to have a nervous breakdown, so I had to slow things down for a bit.

Most of the others that R-ATXed their case just did away with the door, (K.3nny, EvilJerry). If I come up with an idea, I'll shoot it your way, but for now I'm still working on getting the chassis back together on mine.
I was never too concerned with the door, so I left it in stock form, so I had one less thing to worry about with this build. I am interested to see what you come up with for your build though UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!It's about time right? So like I mentioned earlier, I had decided to take a break from most things electronic, and online. Still played a few games here and there, but stayed away from the forums, and Facebook. I was getting pretty down about the build, sponsor wise, because I literally got the same answers I had been getting from other companies pertaining to sponsorship. NO! Or I wouldn't even get a reply. It was frustrating, mostly due to the fact that I am currently broke, trying to live off of 60% of my normal salary, due to my shoulder injury.
I finally decided to say screw it, and get this build completed, so I can get it raffled off, and the money Donated to Cancer Research.
The final specs of the build are -
MB - Asus Crosshair IV Formula
CPU - AMD Phenom II x6 1090T
RAM - 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws 1866MHZ
GPU(weaksauce) - EVGA GTS 250 1GB GDDR3
PSU - NZXT HALE82 850w
SSD - Kingston 60GB SSDNow
Storage HDD - 320GB Western Digital Caviar Blue
Water Cooling Goodies -
XSPC Rasa 750 Dual Bay Res/Pump combo
XSPC Rasa CPU WaterBlock
Masterkleer 1/2" x 3/4" UV Pink Tubing
Coolgate 480mm Radiator
6 - NZXT FN-120 120mm case fans
I was hopeful in getting a better GPU through sponsorship, but ultimately decided to go with the one that I had on hand, that I no longer use. But this system is more than capable of upgrades, so who ever ends up with this rig, can upgrade to whatever they would like .
I will have a special thanks included at the end of the pictures, and will also be adding it to the first post of the thread. With out this people, this build would still be in a few pieces. I can not thank them enough for their help and support!
There will also be the final pics of the modding stage here.
ONTO THE PICS!!!
Final Modding Pics
Waterblock, and tubing install
SSD Mounted and ready to go
Due to the design of the MB tray backplate, I had to come up with a mounting place for the storage HDD. Using one of the stock drive trays, I cut off the 2 handles, and attached it to the the top of the PSU using vlecro, for easy removal and installation.
Instead of running multiple Molex cables to power the LED's, I put together a junction block to provide power for the lights.
Final cable management!Completed build Pics!!
And of course, a huge thank you to my build Sponser NZXT, and to the group of guys that helped me out with a good amount of parts! Give these guys a huge round of applause for their help!!!!!I plan to have the raffle set up by the 15th of August. I will be doing it through ebay. To make it legal to go through ebay, I will actually be "selling" a trading card size, info card of the build, which will enter you in the raffle. Each card will have a raffle ticket attached, which will give you your number in the raffle. I will also be selling them locally, and on Facebook, for the people who do not wish to use ebay.Thank you to everyone who has followed my build, through the good times, and bad. Without your support, I don't know where I would be. Modding is in my blood, and I hope to bring you another great mod very soon! Edited by Kaged - 7/29/12 at 8:28pm
