Thanks man.

Even though it wont be seen being at the back of the card it needed to be very well made as not to sag or have possibilities of getting pinched onto motherboard components when installed.




Im working on the CPU block currently as I disassembled it to polish the jet plate because I didn't like the way it looked. I also have an idea about some mood lighting around the motherboard block like the Dominator platinum ram sticks have. Something very soft and subtle in white. If I have enough room to work with under the motherboard block I might have some pictures in a day or so. thumb.gif

Yes sir... I like them shiny things lol. The orange was awesome on this board but unfortunately it had to go. frown.gif Maybe at a later date I can try an orange theme build.





Not alot of progress today, but I was able to wire up the lighting for the cpu block. It might not seem like much but I.m trying to keep the wiring as hidden as possible as not to detract from the clean look of all the components.

Either way here are some shots of the cpu and wiring finished.

Don't have many pictures today as most of what was done was put the motherboard back together, and rewire a couple of fans.

Rewiring the fans is turning out to be a very tedious endeavour. In the end It will be worth it as I won't have to have the Blue LEDs in the fans on all the time or brightness dictated by fan speed.

Im hoping to at least have all the fans rewired along with custom fan extensions etc by the end of the week. After all the fans are wired up it will be time to sleeve to power supply cables and custom cut them to length.

mad.gif Ugh MOAR WIRING! Have I mentioned how I hate it? lol




I did do some finishing touches like black vinyl on the motherboard battery.






I also "tried" to disguise the BIOS LED lights with some small black vinyl squares. This particular motherboard has dual bios chips and unfortunately has bright leds to indicate which bios chip you are using. Why is this bad you ask, because they are an ugly orangy/red color that clashes with my color scheme and lighting. Heres to hoping it works. tongue.gif

Those waterblocks are looking so good lit up like that. Doing the rewiring may be tedious, but it is definitely worth it. Nice work.

Yes in the end it will be worth having wiring that does not stick out and detract from the build, or at least that's what I keep telling myself. Lol


Cant wait to see the parts start rolling in for that iron beast as well. wink.gif
