Maybe some sort of official OCN pipe bending guide is something you could publish (if you have the time of course, would be a privilege)
I know what a prestigious case the TJ07 is, and it seems like you are doing a really inspiring job buddy, keep it up and keep us posted!
Thanks, haven't gotten anywhere really with the pipe work. Hoping to get a fair amount done this week on the case, how much will be done on the pipes is unknown as I am saving that to nearer the end since I have to mount the rads, res, pumps and whatnot first.
Hoping to get the new motherboard tray and whatnot done this week so I can start putting pieces in the case and really mocking things up and planning out the loop with more detail.
Thanks again for the kind words

Cool lighted fans for your rads (in keeping with the theme too ofc).
I've considered white and definitely silver but have been shying away just because of how much I have been moving around and whatnot, it's certainly much easier to get white/silver dirty during moves and whatnot.

a look at reality
Got any plans for cable management in the back of case? If your going to use cable clamps, you already cut a hole in the mobo tray, may as well drill a couple 6-32 holes in high-traffic areas
Yeah, was certainly my first non-trivial injury with power tools. Which is actually amazing considering all the stupid crap I have done in the past. lol
Cable management is certainly going to be a big role once the case gets closer to completion. There will definitely be "clamp" like items on the back of the case, what exactly will be done I should hopefully know more at the end of the week once the new mobo tray is made.
So slight update for today. Mounted the rear panels and cleaned up the markings from the panels. Things are certainly not done yet. The tabs on the rear panels need to be cleaned up and evened out as well as the obvious, creating the openings for the PSU and I/O panel, haha. But yeah, figured I would post shots of that for the time being.
Things that I am hoping to get done this week:
-New motherboard tray
-Mount mobo tray to new I/O panel
-Figure out where the I/O panel opening needs to be on rear panel
-Make PSU opening
-Finish radiator mounts
-Figure out pump mount
Then hopefully next weekend I'll grab the fittings I need and start bending pipe.
