I have some special wax for black cars (Collinite 915), i'll give it a try and see how the case and panels will look.
Thanks thumb.gif

You are very welcome sir! I have a deep passion/obsession with cars as well as computers. Sometimes the two overlap

Today the last items of my list arrived smile.gif The UV led strip and the sleeved modular psu cables.
I need to say that these are by far the best modular sleeved psu cables i've ever seen drool.gif
Since some members asked where did i found UV sleeved modular cables, here is the seller store, he's from Iceland and have very good prices too:

Those new cables are nice! thumb.gif

Flush the new rad. I've seen flakes in mine and in others from manufacturing. All I did was pour some distilled water in mine and stick the caps that came with it back on and shakes it a few times. Rinse and repeat until nothing comes out.

Cables look great Victor! Where are the assembled case pictures? biggrin.gif

Definitely flush your rads. Some manufacturers are bad with the state they ship their rads, usually lots of contaminates in there that you don't want going around your loop. I fushed mine with tap and distilled and right now noticing some yellowing on my CPU block so better safe than sorry. I've read lemon juice or vinegar and hot distilled water should be good for it. Just basically keep flushing still the water that comes out is clean and clear.

I'm having problems with the mirror glass panel.
