Update!!!

The end is almost in sight. Recent weeks i've done a lot on the Alienware Aurora R4
Because the sleeving didnt go easy with the large connector I used extensions. It is certainly not MDPC sleeve, but it's not too bad

Lower GPU power connected

You've probably saw some pictures pass by with the the tubes, but here everything is connected. This time with 12/10mm tubing
Finally I found them with the perfect size (thanks E22 Nate). Only thing to do is to file a little edge off the tubes just like the crystal links.

And then it was dark ...
Lights on please!!!

Oww almost forgot, the midplate: I've got the whole plate illuminated using a green ccfl bar for one half.
And the other half (left) I've used a glowpad. The PSU cage would otherwise cause a dark spot ... not now smile.gif

DSC00267.jpg

And power on!!!. Because the side panel is off, 3 white LEDs are shining at the top, which shows the internal

Leds off

Very, very impressed. I'm not much of a fan of Alienware myself, but I'm a big fan of this project. Keep up the great work! Subbed.
