-take the mouse apart that to mainly two parts (the chassis and the mouse internals that make it work)
-mod the model tank so that it could fit the mouse internals
-place the mouse chassis on the newly modified tank and wiring the mouse buttons correctly (which might require additional modding on the tank)
-enjoy coolest mouse ever.
i wish i had the option to get a keyboard with brown switches, i only have the Thermaltake Meka black switched one which is good but i wish i could have more variety. when i bought it it was either the Tt keyboard or the MX red Corsair one or Razer's offering. and considering that i also wanted my native language on my keyboard and not only English the choice was... "The darkest one"... (gotta love silly puns)

a little masking tape and spray would produce your military keyboard. (though i have no modding skill at all rolleyes.gif )
what i meant was why did you choose the Gigabyte GV-R797SO-3GD variation of the HD7970 GPUs and not something else available? (like the popular MSI Lightning one or one of Sapphire's offering)

The Silverstone Air Penetrators are not the fans on the card but the name of the fans that are in the front of your case (if i guessed correctly).

i agree that a AIO mounting in the rear of the C70 can be a bit annoying. (depends on the cooler and your will to use the rubber grommets)

Sorry man it has been a long day at work lol

I chose that one because its the same brand i had before and never had an issue with it to be honest, also the fans yes you are correct those are silverstones it just didnt register when i read your post. i'll probably end up switching out the fans on the cooler also at some point, i just have no desire of doing it at this moment since i just built it last week lol

well, mechanical keyboards usually cost ~100$ or somewhere in that price zone.
for better understanding of why is that see This but essentially in most mech keyboards (the exception is Corsair) all the 104 keys are mechanical, which means 104 mechanical switches. mechanical switches aren't cheap so making a full keyboard with 104 of those adds up and can't get to low prices as the regular 10$ rubber dome one. Additionally you need to consider that mech keyboards always try to have additional features to get the consumer and they have all the other work (advertising,PR etc) which adds too.
(maybe Duckys can get lower than 100$ but they are expensive too compared to rubber dome)

is ther any specific reason that you opted for the five mini side fans 7970 of Gigabyte and not the Gigabyte regular with the triangle cooling?

I guess it makes sense but 150$ is still pretty steep. 120$ would make more sense. I'll just wait for a deal. No need to rush out to get it now when my keyboard still works (sorta).

the reason for the 150 instead of <120 is LOGITECH. (have you forgotten the Logitech gaming keyboards series before this?)

Anyone know anyone that does custom sleeved cables? I am after the following

1x Internal USB Header
1x Internal Audio Header
2 Sata 3 Cables
F-Panel Connections
3x PWM Fan Cables Y connections
2x PWM Fan Cables
4x PWM Fan Reductions Cables
2x USB > Micro USB Cables
Link Connections from H100i - If possible?

That's the bare minimum I'll require. I may want extra Sata 3 cables. Although not in use currently. For future upgrades etc.

If one knows any where that does them I am in the UK but shipping from other areas could be an option. Please let me know.

Thanks

Although I love my Corsair Vengeance M60... for military green there is also the Thermaltake Level 10 Mouse:



My K60 keyboard has been awesome for the 1.5 years I've been using it, but I'd sure love to move to their new Vengeance K70 - due out very soon:



It has been upgraded to full Cherry MX red switches (every single key this time around!), adds per-key configurable red backlighting, adds the wide K90-style wrist rest, and is also available in the original silver brushed-aluminum with black keys (the backlighting is blue instead of red).

It still comes with the extra red WASD & 1-6 keys in contoured & textured finish, but they look a bit different because they are laser-cut to allow the backlighting to shine through:



Someday I'll upgrade to a M65 & K70, both in black...
