Fantastic job u did there bob808. The mid plate really looks awesome with the lights in. And the copper pipes fit perfect with the colors of the case also the lights in the side panel are great. biggrin.gif

About the side panels did u get the Aluminum plate easily of the plastic construction ? I am scared that i will bend the it when i pull it of. frown.gif

Bahh! I tried to weigh this with my digital bathroom scale by first weighing myself (180 lbs) then me and the Cosmos but the scale just showed an 'E' on the screen lol. need a good ol mechanical dial type scale or something..

Thanks for following along! You should just go for it man. I used to not know much about computers and then found OCN and started with a self builf HAF 932. Mods started out small and progressively have gotten better and cooler. There 'aint nutin to it but to do it!

p.s. Sleeving your psu is PITA! But turns out amazing. Bad part about it is you will have a stiff neck,sore hands, and fingers for weeks ahead thumb.gif

Feel free to use any ideas- thats why I take the time to make these build logs. Better still if you take the idea and tweak it into something different to make it your own thumb.gif I have 'stolen' lots of ideas from some of the many incredible builds that haunt the pages of OCN going way back-
Yeah- the custom length sleeved cables are coming- sometime soon. I have to figure how to get an order in from nils.

I'm sure this will inspire a lot of us for future modding. Someone said it was art.... Yes it is for all people who appreciate this kind!
Your case has a lot of class, you made it with lot of taste.

Your english seems more than adequate to me! Thanks for the comment and the kind words smile.gif

Not easy at all, sorry to tell you. That double back tape sticks very, very well. But if you use spatulas or similar tool, it can be done without damaging anything. Just be careful and separate the skin evenly. I could only get so far in with my spatula, so I kind of just worked my may in as far as I could from both sides of the panel, and when I had it mostly loose, I just kept pushing in the flat spatula till it came free.

Been working like a slave the last 2 days, 13 hours on Mon and 13.5 hours today. Full day tomorrow also so I had best be getting some sleep haha. I jjust wanted to respond to all the comments you guys were nice enough to post. I'm hoping that when I get a little bit closer to being complete, I may get another chance at a mod of the month contest, as when I was in the first one, I had the case- minus all the watercooling and components and lighting. I also think it needs more light as you can only really make out the silhouette of the motherboard and cards. Those green leds on the hot-swap cage need to go too, along with the blue ones up top for power and hdd activity. The red ones look fine to me, but I may change them out too while I'm at it. More modding to come!

Thanks for looking and your comments! typer.gif

I cut a couple more nedded notched in the acrylic 'shield' and polished them on Saturday and enjoyed some gaming and hung out with My girlfriend.

On Sunday I was working on the overclock. I got it to 4.4 IBT stable, then went back into bios to lower voltages as much as I could while remaining stable. Things were going along nicely, lowering voltages and some doing some quick stress testing, then I restarted (after another lowering of votlage) and got an instant FF message from the EVGA 3-way Classy... 3

All the fans and lights and even mobo lights were coming on, but the only code displayed is the FF, instantly when you hit the power button. I tried resetting the bios, using the clear cmos buttons, and even unplugged the machine and removed the battery and let it sit for an hour. I unhooked everything from the motherboard and used a different psu, using only the 24 and 8 pin for the mobo, and leads for the 480's. Instant FF code still.

Next I removed the board after draining the loop (man that drain line is very convienent!) and tried powering just the board (24 pin/8 pin) with one stick of ram and cpu fan. Instant FF code. mad.gif

The only thing left to try is swapping out the cpu before I rma the board. I will break down the enforcer build I have and try that chip in the Classified when I get home from work this evening.
Luckily I have a couple/few computers or I would really be bummed. It ruined my Sunday anyway, believe me. I almost bought a bunch of new kit, but honestly, I dont think its neccesary to upgrade yet from the i7-920, It's still plenty fast and I'm only really missing out on sata3 as I dont have any usb 3.0 devices yet.

Maybe I'll upgrade when the Maximus V extreme comes out and do an Ivy Bridge build, but I really think I could wait until the next line of processors come out.

Hopefully it's the board and not the processor, as I have a lifetime warranty on the motherboard, and if the i7-920's bad then I probably spend a nice chunk of change on some new kit. The new 2666 MHz G. Skill Trident X ram kits are looking pretty damn sweet! They are going to be coming out with a 2800MHz kit too I think. Thats some speedy ram and makes for an insanely fast ram-drive that make sata 3 ssd speeds look slow haha.

I'll keep you guys posted with any news. I should use this oppritunity to get some sleeving from Nils if I can get my order in fast enough >< I think I may end up using the hx1000 for this build as it can use both 8-pin aux cpu power cables and I could add another 480 later if I wanted to. We'll see.

Well, I got a confirmation email from EVGA today approving the RMA. So far customer service has been stellar. thumb.gif
This will be the second time I have to RMA this board. I will take a close look when I replace the stock heatsinks and look for anything damaged. I still have to check and make sure it wasn't the cpu before I send it in.

Gonna do that now. I guess it would be just as easy to put the cpu in the CM enforcer build I have and see if it works in there.

I'll post with any more news cheers.gif
