I've never had an issue draining my system with the port after the water pump. I have a switch 810, frozenQ res, MCP35x pump.

Thanks for the kind words everyone!

It's a work in progress but in all fairness I did steal ideas liberally from Gen Ross' beautiful CandyCane build. I had some of the same general ideas and his amazing build notes saved me some headaches in doing some similar work.

I've got some more parts arriving this week. Thought I had everything all mapped out but as the build has progressed I ran into some things I overlooked. Typical eh?

I know it's a bit late since you've already painted an souch, but did you consider Dwood's pedestal for the switch?

I hadn't seen that product before. It's nice but I don't see how it would fit my needs. Stop making me want things! biggrin.gif

The exterior case work is completed. Sneak peak:




I decided to pick up a new mobo as my existing Gigabyte UD3H colors would clash with this build. Yea, I'm a bit picky smile.gif

As soon as the Asus Sabertooth Z77 arrives I can pull the TUF cover. I'll basecoat it in white and then bust out my Iwata airbrush and get to work on a nice custom graphic overlay on the board cover.

It kinda does. Funny thing is that I've never liked the Resident Evil games, mostly because the control scheme on consoles just rubbed me the wrong way.
