I emailed them a month ago to ask them a few questions before i bought the case and i still havent got word. I ended up going somewhere else to cet a case.

@hackjoe, keep up the work! This is looking interesting already wink.gif

it will be a while before they make an ATX version. They want to see how far the get with the MATX version before they will consider releasing an atx version.

UPDATE 5.0 - Cables & Fitted Hardware

It's been a while but progress has resumed. I grossly underestimated just how much wire/sleeve I'd need and so promptly ran out.. haha.

E22 were in the process of moving at the time so I put the project on hold and awaited a supply drop.

So the loop is next, sadly it's looking like the second GPU is off the table (budget issues) which has messed with how I originally saw the loop being routed. Also KLEVV ram is harder to source here in the UK than an honest tory. So for now at least I'm making use of some RAM I had left over from MODZERO FOUR.


...

I'll share photos of the cable management in the final shots, I'm pleased with how it's looking back there but seeing as I'll have to unplug most of it when I fill the loop (lost my old trusty PSU I use to run the pump when I'm filling) I'm hoping to improve it a little more.

Thanks for checking it out.

Thanks buddy, they turned out okay. Sat here making an extension for the power switch (as I wanna keep the button at the bottom of the case). Gonna start on the loop tomorrow. Fingers crossed I may have it up and running by the end of the weekend.

Can always add another latching switch to control some LED strip then you will have a button top and bottom. Cant wait to see that res in action, that was a good idea and different to do that. thumb.gif

If it was so close to being done, I'd consider taking it apart and drilling out the top hole, putting the lights on a separate switch is a good idea. I've got two 30cm Dazmode LED strips to go in. The thing is they are so bright! So I had a plan.. The strips are dimmable so I bought the 3pin fan header cables for them to route through a fan controller. I also ordered extensions (which reminds me, much contact mayhems as they are on backorder).

As all the 120mm fans are 3-pin I've got them hooked up to a Phanteks PWM module in the back, I was mulling over the idea of connecting the two LED strips to the same controller. The thought being, when the system is idle the strips will be quite dim but as it warms up they get brighter. Kinda thinking it'll get annoying... but... meh.. I'll see what it's like.

Any thoughts on controlling voltage without a dedicated controller? I could power of the mobo and profile them through speedfan...

Just run them off a fan header and set a profile up say like 60% in the bios and set a straight line up across the whole temp range, but i think the asus board bios you can change the headers to PWM or DC, but yes they are bright, run two off a y cable or get a splitter and run them from there connected to the fan header, mix and match them cause they come in 30cm or 15cm so can direct light where you want them, or get an aquaero and use that, then you can manage your temps then aswell. thumb.gif

Thanks for that, I've used the 3-pin fan cable I bought for the strips (Y-split extention) and run it off a header on the board. Just in the process of making the cables longer (can't be waiting for the items off back order). I use SpeedFan to control all my fans/pump so I can base it off the GPU rather than the CPU. I didn't get aware with the loop today.. gonna spend a couple hours on it now.
