Thanks bro, I really enjoyed playing with the airbrush, but it will take some time till I get were I need to. I am soooooo excited to see what Dan can do with with case.

You guys are awesome, thanks for all the great feedback. I was thinking about going with a white string for the sewing, but the black string is kinda growing on me. I will buy some anyway and see how it looks.


I'm going to be getting 16GBs of yellow Adata xpg v2 ram, and a couple Adata SSDs.

Those XPG are kickass looking RAM!

Another choice for a yellowish RAM is this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820226219

But you would be restricted to 8GB

Just found out that I wont be able to get that ram in time for PDXLan in July, so i'm going to get there XPG v1 ram. Then upgrade to the V2 ram later, maybe in time for PAX Prime in Seattle.
That is nice ram as well, but I really want the 2 8gb Adata modules.
I picked up some white thread today to see how the cable look with white sewing. I got a busy weekend ahead of me. The power supply needs to have a little more filler, and sanding done. I have cables to build, feet to build, and I have to figure out something for a back plate on the 690. Ohh and there a few other odds and ends to work on.

So I tried out the white thread and I can't make up my mind on the black or white. What do you guys think? I'm kind of partial to the black.

Curiously I was one of those who suggest to go with a lighter thread and in the end, after seeing this picture, the black thread is standing out better the the white one.

Like DiGiCiDAL said, the black accent is kind of a reminder of the frame and the fan bodies.

My preference is the black thread, stands out, shows its constricting the sleeving, and alternately, that the sleeving is fighting back !

I prefer the black threading, it stands out. The white blends with the yellow cables making it look as if it wasn't there.

Clear fishing line would show up to much because the knots cant cinch down small enough. It might even spread the wires out more. I will try it some time and post a pictures. Probably after I'm done with this build. I have to have it done buy the second week of July.

So the case panels and power supply are off to Dan at Splat-Designs to be airbrushed. He will be sending me. I am thinking about having him do a couple other things when they come in. I got allot of sleeving done this weekend, and I decided to go with the black thread. I would need a UV reactive thread. I prefer to use a wax based thread. It holds better and the knots are much tighter. The white I found would show up kind of blue under the UV lights. Most other colors would still show up allot darker to the wires. I'll get some pictures taken of the sleeving in the next couple days.
I also started working on the case feet. I built a prototype to see what it would look like. It looked pretty sweet. The only problem was when I polished it up, It just didn't look right. I'm going to start working on a couple others. I built some round ones that have a single stripe in the middle just in case I can't find a design that works. The pictures is before I polished it up.
