After some consideration and balling ideas with a fellow OCN member Qrash, I have decided that I would like to implement a theme into my build. These red lines can be located on my motherboard (Maximus V Gene). Here is a picture to give an idea of what I am talking about.

With the design implemented.

Me too! I can't wait to see how much sleeker the final results can be.

Please provide details on how you remove the ATX powersupply pins from the connector. I've tried several times, but cannot do it with my Sunbeam tool.

Thanks for the diagrams. I thought the Sunbeamtech (not Sunbeam) ATX tool was supposed to be used like the top diagram. I tried like you indicated in the second one, but I still can't get the pins out of the ATX connector. I'm trying with a spare power supply (PC Power and Cooling Silencer 610). Maybe it'll be easier with a different one. I'm not ready to give up yet!

Get a move on bro!

I've got a TJ08-E build for my mate coming up next weekend, and I need to steal some inspiration! thumb.gif

We are going w/ the Swiftech Apogee drive II for his pump/block though, and an EK single bay res. I'm going to be interested to see temps w/ CPU/GPU on a 180mm and 120mm rad.
