. That is actually my account but I need to transfer names
. Anyways, my plan is to glue 6 neodymium magnets on the front, and then glue 6 magnets on the other side of the case So that I can see everything in the build and have easy put on/take off. Check that build out if you are interested and if you need any help, pm me as I love watercooling stuff.
P.S. I blew my budget too XD
Hahah nah the acrylics actually for my mid plate
Sweet thanks! Hope your builds still continuing!

Have had far too many of these "upgrades" this year

Not that I need it, but just for the look. Thanks!
Hmm.. From what I can see, its definitely possible if you remove the rear exhaust fan or place the front radiators fans on the inside of the front cover. Tbh I wish I stuck with my original plan and went with 360GTX up front and 360GTS up the top. Oh well, would be a waste changing it up now!

I was actually really tempted to upgrade to the skylake on the launch date but judging from reviews it doesn't seem worth it anymore.

Alright folks I'm still here, the build isn't dead. I apologize for the huge delay! I've honestly been neglecting this project lately
but it's time I get this build going again!
So over the past few weeks I've changed this build back and forth because I couldn't decide what I'm happy with after looking at literally over hundreds of other builds!!
Anyways my cables are finally here from Icemodz!! Sleeved in MDPC-X Black & Grand Bleu
Bought some stealth cable combs from E22 to keep my cables neater
Also got some a few other SATA cables and front I/O cables sleeved in MDPC-X Black too! First time sleeving so not the best job
CPU Block is finally mounted on and here's an idea of how I want my GPU mounted!
Borrowed a DSLR from my girlfriend
Decided to mount the pump up right instead, Got my acrylic sheets, however I ordered a couple wrong colors and accidentally snapped a bit too much off when I was cutting it so I ordered a couple more sheets and redo them properly this time. Also played around with the dye in the GPU water block
Shot of how the res is going to look with the Darkside Blue UV LED strip replacing the CCFL
I think we all can tell that I have absolutely no idea on how to use a DSLR hahah! Sadly after playing around with it a bit, the cameras battery died on me!!! Girlfriend misplaced her charger too so I'll be getting a new one for her and so that I can stop taking hideous photos with my iPhone camera! Anyways here's the last shot I got before the battery died. Filled up the res with distilled water too and a couple drops of Mayhem Deep Blue in there! I think it looks great with the helix lit up!
Anyways time to start some tubing! Man did I underestimate rigid tubing.. Here's a couple of my first bends.. Don't worry, I'll be redoing those for sure..
After countless attempts and watching many videos, I'm finally improving little by little!
And here's where I'm currently at!
Hopefully the battery charger comes in soon so I can retake a few of these shots
Still need to redo both the tubing on CPU water block and having a lot of dramas trying to get the GPU > RAM block...
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I mounted the GPU on the case, it's not going to stay like that so don't worry, I'll be cleaning that up over the week
Once the acrylic piece comes in then I can drill some pass throughs for the tubing
I'd love to make some water channels in the mid plate, however I can't see that happening with my terrible modding skills
Ordered some new black screws to replace a bunch of my silver ones as well.. I'll update you guys soon!
I'm winging everything as I go guys so any help or suggestions/drawing with the loop paths or gpu mounting etc would be appreciated
Complete amateur over here!
Here's a change from this project, my previous project 1-2 years ago. This ones for you car guys!
I'm not gonna lie.. I was pretty stoked to see my car on StanceNation one random morning.
I wish I went a little more into performance as well but I'm getting over modding cars now
Well that's all, hope you guys enjoyed these photos!Edited by RichardGTan - 9/28/15 at 6:23am
