 Built in a 4th Case Labs case is one is a Foldind@Home workhorse with 3 GTX 780.
The color scheme is very neutral. White case, black motherboard, white and dark gray sleeving with a touch of purple sleeving.
All 4 radiators are custom painted white.

 I was inspired by valves steam machine and wanted to make a similar machine but more powerful with a modular design in mind so I made an external radiator box to go with it. I also wanted to experiment with lighting but wanted to try something a little different by having rgb lighting inside the water tubing and making a custom rgb double helix as well as a custom power button , in the end I ended with my first build ever.

 The reason for the rebuild is I was very tempted to get myself a caselabs SMA8, however it was going to cost well over 1k NZD which is far too expensive for a case imo. So Ive decided to mod my trusty TJ07 to be the next best thing.
 

Mods include :
480 Rad up top
black gloss midplate and mobo tray
custom length cables and sleeving
Removal of the drive bays
Nickel and Black theme

The build has a RGB LED strip in it with a remote control and a sound activated cathodes, along with a fan controller that has a temp sensor. Sexy looking build that was under $1000, next one's going to be watercooled, keep your eyes open wink.gif

I saw the ghost case and thought, wow drool.gif a 360 in the front, but no i needed a bigger wow, 420 in the front and a monsta at that wink.gif , so thats how it started. didnt want to change the outside of the case so rebuilt the front to keep it original, didnt want to spend a heap on GPU so thought a little different sli 590's thats the go, but im water cooling.umm custom water blocks. o dear no drive bays where to mount the drives i will think of somethink.. biggrin.gif Hope you enjoy the build.

 I've went through a long but very excited journey in building my first ever water cooling system - also first time in modding as well. This's my personal ROG gaming PC which features ASUS Maximus VI Formula motherboard, everything cooled by EK water block with acrylic tube and Bistpower fittings. Main color scheme is Red - Black and a bit White alternated, the goal to archive is a simple and clean system. By watching a lot of great builds in here and over the internet I've got the inspiration and confidence to build my own-unique one hopefully it'll inspire other as well.

 You REALLY need to check out the build log to fully appreciate this build! There are so many nuances that can't be shown in just four pictures. Each feature was carefully thought out and executed, and everything I did was custom built or modified. From the motherboard, to the truck-bed coated side panels, this rig was built tough. It features real military insignia, actual military spec numbers, genuine bullet holes, aircraft style switches, empty bullet casings, digital camo, and a custom-made replica Browning M1919 machine gun mounted to the chassis using aluminum picatinney clamps and rail. The chassis was also designed for maximum air-flow and aesthetics both internally and externally.

This mod feature a NZXT H440 "Silent" case, a custom acrylic tubing for watercooling,some nasty hardware, and a lot of little mods everywhere.
The color theme of this build was based on glossy red and mate black.
A lot of attention was given to the hardware colors, to always match the color theme.
Enjoy

Thanks! I would like to take the first place, please count me in biggrin.gif. This is my build log:
http://www.overclock.net/t/1496679/build-log-project-dd01-corsair-900d-custom-water-cooled-final-pictures

It supposed to be an amateur class build however I finished it just few days after last month's event has ended, so I missed out. I'm not a pro at all and this build is my first on everything so far - from water cooling to modding etc,. but doesn't matter, I'm here to learn and for fun after all. So let's roll thumb.gif
