[Build Log] Project Magis: The Caselabs S5 build I'm giving away - Page 25

post #241 of 465
That's awesome.

Should I filter the front fans at all? I currently have everything as intake except the rear fan. To clean the front filter you would have to vacuum it anyway, because of the flex bay grill. A filter would detract a bit from looks, and I don't know how much of a difference it would make. I currently have 2 black silverstone 120 filters for those 2 fans, so I have the option.

Demcifilter has one custom for putting inside the flex bays. I'm considering buying one myself.

Ya I was looking at that one... I just realized you can get them in white too which would be nice. I don't want a big black frame running around the inside of the grill.

They say it took Thomas Edison 10,000 tries to make the light bulb... I feel like I'm getting close to that number trying to solder and sleeve this string of LED strips.

Just read through this whole thing, nice job! I also have an S5 (4770k on a VI Gene, two 780s) all watercooled with acrylic tubing, I'll post some pics up later. I must say your wiring has inspired me, mine is a little bit... lacking. I mean it's fine and managed to an extent, just not like yours.

ALSO as a fellow senior in high school, have you heard back from your colleges yet? Hopefully you've gotten into your first choice! I found out last week I got into Berkeley's College of Chemistry, biochemistry major, booya!! Proud to be a future bear. biggrin.gif

Glad you checked out the build! Finally got the lighting working and installed, I'll post pictures tonight.

I'm 80% sure I'm going to Notre Dame. I got more financial aid then I was expecting so I think it will be feasible cost wise.

Congratulations on the acceptance!

No problem, I've been looking to FINALLY start some custom sleeving for myself, it just scares the bejessus out of me. I suppose it's something I should really learn for my future builds, can you tell me where you learned to do it? Lutro0's guides?

And that's awesome man, congratulations! I'm actually really happy about Berkeley, it was my second choice behind Stanford. It's their loss anyway, I end up going to their rival school tongue.gif.
