Thinking about painting the fan blades. Red or white, I am unsure but it will be painted. Might do the entire housing beside the colored ring.

Sadly no. Ill be ordering the fittings with my next check, and the end of the month/beginning of February I'll get my CPU and waterblock. Sadly this months Mod of the month is a little lack luster and I basically nominated myself since it was all partial builds. As of right now based on a PM I got there are only 3 people including me left in the running. But I happen to fit the criteria at least in my opinion and the mod seemed to think so as well. SOOOOO i got my fingers crossed.

I've decided to make custom cables for this build. The way corsair does their custom SATA cables makes it really easy to get one the exact length I need. PCIe cables will be a bit harder as well as the 8pin CPU connector but It will help me clean things up a bit. Not really going to be fully custom cables I am just going to shorten the existing ones. This will most likely be the last thing I do with the build but I figured out I could do the sata ones so I did one real quick.







The black heat shrink I had around was way too big after it shrank so I did it in red with leftovers from my red sleeving. Turned out pretty good I think so I will be getting more red once I start doing the cables.

Fittings, tubing, and new fan control device ordered



I may end up needing another rotary 90 but with acrylic I can do mostly straight connections.

Basically I have all big ticket items left to buy now. So next paycheck pump/res combo, then check after that CPU, then CPU block and radiator. So hopefully have this build finished by the end of February/mid March.

All right. So I made some more custom SATA cables. Ordered everything I need for my 8pin and PCIe cables to make them custom length besides the crimping tool. Unsure which one I am going to buy at this point, MDPC-X's crimper seems to give the best results with curling the ends over. But for now some pics of my 3 new cables.

Was thinking about moving my SSD to the black bracket but I am not going to double sided tape it to the side of the PSU.







I also got things measured out for my PCIe and 8PIN CPU power cables. Now just to wait on my pins and then get a crimping tool.

Looks good.

I think I would have done multiple colored sleeves in the way of the Italian Flag. Like for the 24-pin, do 4 green, 4 white, 4 red.
