Nothing major, just got myself a lamptron cw611 today. Going to be busy for this few weeks since lots of deadline to meet so wont be doing any modding anytime soon tongue.gif

Was almost done with the rig so I was testing it & turns out my hard disk & optical drive wasnt working. Checked in bios & it didnt detect the drives so I thought maybe something is wrong with the sata cable connected to the motherboard. After diagnosing it, it turns out the power cables isnt working properly. Had to remove the custom cables I made & redo it.



The EZ crimp connector isnt making a very good contact with the wires. I guess in order to use this type of connector, I will need 16awg wires instead of 18awg.



Seems like no sleep tonight for me...


Yeap, now its working. Redo the wires but this time I didnt sleeve it, too lazy already. Wires will be hidden anyways so wouldn't make much of a difference.



And another problem now, seems like the corsair fans isnt working with lamptron cw611. Fans all are working, I tested it before.



Had to strip off this 3pin pcb, to test it. Is it faulty? After doing few tests, it turns out the 3pin extension cable that I made was wired wrongly :lol: no wonder nothing seems to power up. My bad for being a fool, luckly no fans burnt for wiring up the + & - wires wrongly.



Time to continue modding, just adding some finishing touches.



I know, I am pretty crazy right? There is so much leds in my rig that I lost count of it already...



Turns out better than I expected!



Quick question, is 12.7LPH a good flow rate?

Cable management



Current progress on how it looks like. I am almost done with it, just left SSD modding & few finishing touches.









Guess where I am going to mount 2 SSD? I think its pretty obvious right?





Ordered some ROG fan stickers already, will be replacing all the corsair stickers with it.



My legendary ultra fine magnetic filter, the rear fan is an intake to bring fresh air to the radiators so thats why I need a fan filter for it.

I know what you mean, not a big fan of plastic casing either but for its price compared to other casing(in my country), its a pretty good casing wink.gif

Adding stickers!









Sticker didnt turn out to be that good, I mean its kinda small as you can see. Not giving a very nice look but I think its still better than the corsair stickers. Since this is an ROG theme build, no choice but to go for it unless I custom make my own stickers.



I drained the purple coolant & refill with red. So far its been good, just that it turned darker red than when I filled. I am guessing the left over purple stains in the rad mixed with the red dye? Maybe I need to do a second round of refilling. Either that or there is some stubborn air pockets in the radiator which is causing the radiator to oxidize & when the coolant touches that oxidized part it turns darker colour. I saw mayhems recent post regarding radiator oxidation & how it affects the pastel coolant, not sure if it applies to the distilled water with dyes but its possible I guess.



Got some stickers for the ssd mod & touch up but turns out SSD mod will need to be canceled.



Bad news, the nand chips is not on the upper part, but upside down instead. If I were to cut a hole & put acrylic, can only see the green pcb! This is ugly! Unless I change SSD, ssd moding is a no go. I could cut it at the bottom part but then if I put acrylic I wont be able to screw the pcb in I guess since clearance is too small & I prefer it to be secured so no choice but to cancel this mod. Oh well, 1 ssd is warranty is voided frown.gif





This is what I wanted to do if you dont get it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42MQW1YzAdI
