I'm waiting for the Paracord sleeving for my PSU..

So I can begin to work on it.

Plumbing 101.





It's now the time to drop in the 290 in their place.







I have to grind the backplate of my first video card because the EPS 6 pins for the PCIe cannot plug in and the ram bracket on both side block the way so the card cannot clip in.But it is a Coldzero backplate and it is in acrylic so it can be done easily.

I can even plug and unplug my PCIe M.2 adaptor card easily without having to remove a video card. It is between the bottom cards in the fourth slot.



Hard to see.

A little "leak test" waiting the sleeving.

I had a problem with the flow which was very low. The result: clean everything and put all back together. But now everything is fine as you can see in this short video:

I tested my 3 R9 with GPU-Z and they are running GEN 3 16X16X16.

Looking very good. I really like those clean lines.

Also, not sure if it was intentional or not, but I like how you have "hidden" the blue from the mainboard. thumb.gif

It was my idea to hide all that ugly blue for me and the last slot has a sound card in it,

Finally, the sleeving is done for the graphic cards



My fingers are gone with.

Paracord is very nice but it's hard on fingers.

It looks yellow in the front but look between the res and the card, it's really green.
One day, I'll buy a good camera.
