Question: All fans are exhaust...any reason why you went with all exhaust fans (Negative Pressure) instead of Intake Fans for the radiators?

Any updates on the fluid colour? I also think white water will look amazing with the rest of the build.

Looks fantastic! Just read through the entire thread, this is like a dream watching this build be put together. Keep up the good work! Love the color scheme and details put into it

Do not to take out the other side that is connected to the motherboard wall. It will considerably reduce stability to the whole cable managment side of the case, if you remove that side. That is why I opted to leave mine in.

Thanks for your help. I got that thing removed in no time. And only one potentially life threatening issue. smile.gif The screw that holds on the metal disks to the dremel apparently decided it was time to fail (I found it later and it looks like it just crumbled apart. This threw the metal disk bouncing on the inside of the case, then striking my arm and scraping off some hair before flying through the garage. Close call and I'm really not sure how it didn't cut my arm. I had z87 safety glasses and this should serve as a reminder to all the dremel is a serious tool.

RGB Lights here we go!

Dude!! That is insane! Those little discs are seriously dangerous LOL I'm glad you got away with just some lost arm hair.

I put in an order today for some mayhems pastel white. I agree that, since the rest of my theme is black and white, using an accent color will detract from the aesthetic.

So this weekend I will do some custom acrylic work to make a battery cover/mid plate and a couple other accent pieces to mount throughout the build. I will document the job like before. Just in case any of you guys would like to try it yourself, you can learn from my mistakes upsidedwnsmiley.gif

Post #64; sounds like he was just getting them mounted up for the time being, not the final orientation wink.gif

Sweet looking build you've got going, OBI-1 thumb.gif Any updates on the progress?

So, I haven't updated for a while. Ran into some life issues that need a bunch of cash. I will upload some pics soon. Stay tuned!!

I'm sorry to hear that! I'm glad you're still around and haven't killed the project. Don't rush just to keep us happy, some of us are still here cheering you on. thumb.gif

Thanks for the inspiration OBI-1




I have since installed the 360 rad up top n the monsta 360 in the front. Don't know if I'm going to build up anymore though as I've since become interested in the x99 platform and I really want/need a black mobo to continue the contrast I'm going for. And that right now is msi's x99.
