not to cut in but the fins are the best they take time but look amazing if done right.

That's all I'm looking for really, an opinion on one or the other. I have a photo of one of the tests I did with painting the frame.

It's looking great so far, I like the idea of completely taking out the HDD cages. I'm about to begin an extremely similar build myself and needless to say you've definitely sent some inspiration my way. Keep it up!

Thanks a lot man! Yea IMO it looks so much better without any cages to distract your eyes from the rest of the case. It's so free and open now. It took two seconds to drill out the rivets and I'm glad I did. I've always loved hidden SSD's and I think they look awesome behind the motherboard. I used velcro to attach them so I can take them off any time I want. Hopefully I'll have my sleeved cables back within a week. They are going to make everything stand out more and are just going to fit in perfectly with everything else. Can't wait to be able to play Bioshock again! I'm going crazy just staring at. I've been out of work for a little while now, but I think I may have finally gotten a job so once I start working (hopefully in the next couple weeks) I'm going to buy my GPU blocks, some angled fittings, a top XT45 360mm rad, rear ST30 120mm rad, and a bottom XT45 280mm rad. Yes, I know that I don't need all of those, but I'm doing it purely for looks and to have a ton of headroom. Having all of those rads is going to allow me to have an extremely neat path for the tubing to follow. Can't wait for that. The whole reason I'm doing this is for my poor GPU's. To tell you the truth I could care less about the CPU because it is already delidded and will stay extremely cool regardless of what block or heatsink I have on there. Very excited to go further into the rabbit hole!

I think everything is coming together pretty awesomely. Been enjoying sharing our progress between our builds.

Speaking of sleeving, my 550 cord comes in tomorrow!!
Sanding down my mesh grills in the meantime.

Thanks man I've been enjoying it too. It's nice to see that people are interested in what I'm doing. Here are a couple of cool pics. Can't wait to get those other rads in the case. It looks way to empty right now.

Will you be adding any coloring to that water? Or leaving it clear?
