Update!

Sleeving USB 3.0 front headers. I haven't seen anyone make a tutorial on how to do it, and it was quite a task, let me tell you.
jmVaKl.jpg

The main problem, is that you either need large sleeve to go over the motherboard connector, or, you need to modify the headers because the casings are heat-sealed after they are installed on the header.

So, we cut both side with an exacto knife, leaving both screw mounts intact. Cut below and above it. You have to go fairly deep, but ensure you aren't cutting any wires. There's also hot clue on the wiring/connector to keep everything in place. When you remove the connector from the casing, you've gotta be careful, otherwise it the connector will come apart.

After it's removed, you just use your MDPC USB sleeve to sleeve the cable. Placing the casing back on the connector takes a bit of work, just make sure you put your heatshrink ON before the casings. Once the casings are on, then you can torch your heatshrink.

Just waiting for the Heatshrink to cool down to hit it again to make sure it's nice and form-fitting.

The Hue Lighting system.

Fans prepped for cleaning of where the Gelid decals were. Custom stickers are on order :

Starting on tubing. Those Monsoon compressions look really sexy.

And now I await my GPU back from RMA, and perhaps there's a little something something coming this week. smile.gif

The Custom front panel should be here today or tomorrow, so that will be test-fitted and the project box for the lighting completed as well.

Definitely subbed.

I'm thinking of getting the 820 for my build... Anyone know what kind of rad I can fit in the top? I'm probably getting a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme (I'm too lazy for a p/p system and this is my first water cooled machine) and I have some doubts that it'll fit if I decide to keep the fan there.
post #55 of 107
It can fit a 360 rad up top for sure, if I am not mistaken though it has quite a lot of room up top just like the switch 810
From what I have heard the innards are the same as the switch for the most part with a couple of tweaks such as the drive bays, but I could be wrong thumb.gif

Interesting approach, but I prefer using one sleeve per wire. Personally I think it looks cleaner, and there's no need to cut apart the main motherboard connector. Though, with how is USB3.0 hub is designed, I don't think he had much of a choice unless he could have disassembled the enitre thing.

It was freezing and snowing over the weekend. Hopefully I get my front panel today, so tonight I can get back to work on things. I'm at a standstill until that comes.

Agree with you on how you did it, In a perfect world cutting both ends will look the cleanest but oh well.

Also Custom stickers, got a sneak peak.

Time for an update!

So, the GPU should be in my hands Monday or Tuesday, which means? Build time! Now... for some more modding work....

Received the custom Aquaero 5 panl from DWood

Some Stickers for the fans.

Now it's time for some Acrylic work. I found that if you actually use a Dremel Metal cutting disc, and use the top surface of it, you can "grind down" or shave off acrylic in orderly fashion, which allows you to get more detailed results with a handfile once you're done.

EhTsSl.jpg

Once cut down, I hand-file it

PERFECT!

Then I use a propane torch to gently "kiss" the edges to make them nice and smooth. No screws are needed to install as the acrylic fits perfectly into the opening....

But.,.. I felt something was missing.... Something just didn't feel right... We need it to match the rest of the build... and there's mesh.... so...

Now, we need a hole for the LED.... X marks the spot...

More to come in the next few days.... smile.gif The fun REALLY begins..
