Most of it's hidden. Think I'm gonna keep the stock front anyhoo.

EDIT: Also, left the uni body with my father after telling him what I wanted to get done and him saying "leave it here when you go." so we'll never know how that'll go. Surprises biggrin.gif

Also I got full-time at work this week so I'll have some money to start playing with more so on the build side of things.

I've been trashed! Working longs days and such of all standing up and trying to fit in time with other people leaves me spent!

I bought a handful of compression fittings today (12 1/2x3/4 BitsPower) and 2 pass-through fittings so I can map stuff out.

Waiting to hear from dad about getting the case welded and such, probably won't get done under his watch as he's even more forgettful as I am, but next time I go down I'll be putting some paint on the pieces I'm keeping. Also going to be ordering my ColdZero parts soon.

Oh! And I've settled on iATX. It works better with the plans bubbling in my head and will making tubing routing a bit easier. And hey, I did ATX in the past so might as well do something different.

EDIT: Heh. Just was looking at PrimoChill acrylic tubing jazz after I bought some normal tubing fittings. Kind of a bummer as it could be a cool idea but when I start putting things together I guess I'll decide if I want to do acrylic or not.

Anyone out there? wave2.gif
Status updates!

Received my compression fittings, so sexy! Never seen or held them in person only seen them in build logs and I for one say I'm never going back!

Changed the parts around a bit in the OP, going with an EK Supremacy Elite CPU block instead and Corsair Dominator Platinum's as I saw it in a build together somewhere and it looks awesome. Also going to be picking up a Silverstone Strider because apparently (according to Linus) the individually sleeved cables for them are amazing. He says they rival MDPC but I'll take that with a bag of salt.

I want to get the case sorted before I make any moves on CZ parts or bits that will change depending on the case like the pump and res placement. I left it with my father to be "sorted out" but he's been up in Exmouth on a fishing expedition (he goes a few times a year) so there's unfortunately been no progress on that. I also can't decide on which colour tubing to get and if I go with a secondary colour in my log or not, that'll be decided later when I have the bits up and about - I think I'll go with white.

Another thought I had as seeing as the panels are so bogus I might mount a fan controller facing in so I can keep the fans nice a quiet on the radiator but maybe turn them up (of off) as needs apply. The other option is get one that CZ can put cut-outs for which would look nice in front, but I'm still fond of my idea of welding something into the front all clean like and getting it powder coated again.

Input's always welcome, might buy a camera soon so I can take decent picture.
So many things to buy!

I know! I feel bad about the lack of picture but I keep forgetting to get my girlfriends camera when I go up to her place and she keeps forgetting it when she comes down haha.
Looking at getting a camera anyway, but not sure how far I should go as it may become another money-pit tongue.gif

I got some Bitspower 1/2" ID 3/4" OD compression fittings and 2 BitsPower passthrough fittings, seeing as all my other rotary/stops/angles and stuff are BP and they're all toptoptop quality I'd figure I'd get the rest to match. I'm going to repaint them all though as my current ones have scuffs and they're not matte black :3

If you get a decent dslr you'll be away laughing. Don't need something with all the extra bells and whistles unless your a pro. they are an excellent investment though. Use mine plenty of on trips and so on

Hmmm I guess. I've been scanning the OCAU for sale photography forum every for something to pop up in my price range, so when it does then I'm sold.

Thumbs-up for the Bitspower fittings, they're pricey but great quality. Ditto for the Doms, I still love my old set.

Having all the psu cables custom-sleeved would be great, but not all of us want to do that.
I had to dig around to find that review from Linus on the custom SilverStone cables, after viewing that, I found the cable set at SilverStone's site:
www.silverstonetek.com/product.php?pid=354

This is similar to what Corsair has been offering for some of their psus. Nice thing is that like Corsairs accessory cable sets, they aren't extensions, but replacement sleeved cables.
I used a set of Bitfenix Alchemy sleeved extensions on mine, but I still had to stuff the existing psu cables into the small remaining space I had left in the base. I wish that Seasonic, the oem for mine, would make them available.

I think that's a great choice you made getting the Strider psu with a set of the custom cables, they'll look good, and be a lot easier to manage.thumb.gif

I think so too. Never had a BP fitting leak on my but I've had other brands be annoying and leaked.

Yeah, they're interesting. They're pretty much the same thing as the corsair set just sold as individual cables rather than a whole set (which is actually kind of annoying).

Hopefully it'll be easy to manage! My old TJ07 was annoying seeing as I never made a cable cut out so it was always a squeeze.
