btw I am on vacations but I do have final pictures and video to upload. Will do that latter when I get back.

edit 2- Oh yeah Willi, frozen also sell those caselabs cases and you can have an estimate on the cart of the shipping costs. thumb.gif

Amazing! I didn't know they actually did direct-import shipping. I'll look into it, might even be worth visiting Caselabs in person and choosing a case there. I'll file it under future projects.
For now I need to finish my 360/240 800D casemod and learn how to not suck horribly with a dremel.
Enjoy your vacation, I bet everyone here is looking forward for a video of that gorgeous Aurora on acrylic tubing.
Also, don't you think that a white Aurora along with the dark gray would look amazing? I know that Aurora is not as long-lived as pastel, but if you leave the pumps working even with the case turned off (on the most silent setting possible) I do think they would last much longer (they start depositing the moment you turn the pumps off, right?)
There might be a way of doing that, perhaps a very small 12V psu powering the pumps permanently, who knows?

Congratulations again, mate thumb.gif
PS: te mando uma MP quando tiver mais tempo. Abraço e valeu!

Yep, I though about the aurora white. In fact I do have 2 liters of yet waiting to go inside. I went pastel because the white aurora is more a transparent thing. In any case I was waiting on 3 bottles of aurora booster to use on the pastel to the same effect. But dhl screw me up not acknowledging receiving all the documents for customs and sent the package back to PPC ( @phillyd if you see this would appreciate any help since was DHL mistake not mine or PPC either). In any case I did left 2 pumps running (one on each loop) on a 500w PSU during my vacations. In that way the liquid is circulating while I am away. thumb.gif

Want it. Now. biggrin.gif

I remember when I got my 650D case I found that one large. Haha

Is that the default white color? Too bad Caselabs won't show example pictures when you change the case layout on the website.

Yep, default white color with the flex bay in black. Thks mate thumb.gif That would be a nice touch, live pictures changing according to your choices.

Exactly.
Look, most of us will understand what everything means but surely not everyone who buys cases does.

Folks

here is the plan to finish the build. I need to cut some tubes in half and sand it a bit to make a mask for the leds and diffuse the light. Will be doing this in 2 or 3 weeks. Cable management is done even though the pictures are not showing yet. Waiting to sort out with PPC the aurora booster shipping to add it to the pastel white liquid.

A little poll here. Would you guys think the build is good enough to enter the MOMT contest (the amateur non-sponsored class)?

EDIT - something like this:
