I've taken some low light pictures:







(Again, sorry for bad pictures. I used my iPhone's flash as a down light)

The Hue+ has arrived, will get another update soon.

In other news, I got given these by the lovely people that did my cables:



At some point will replace the red accents with yellow, probably trim some vinyl stickers to cover up the red lettering on the motherboard bits too.

Yeah, they were made in UK. I found them on ebay:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/customcables6162?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

Based in Dartford. They have been around for a while with 800+ 100% positive feedback.

Highly recommended, friendly and professional staff.

Paid £70 for 24pin, 8pin EPS, 2x 8pin PCI-E, 2x 6pin PCI-E.

Not bad pricing, considering Cablemod would cost about £110 shipped from China, and no sealed cable comb option.

Check out this abomination:


All my hard work undone LOL


The NZXT Hue+, is quite a cool little gadget. I use it to customise exactly which part of the case to light up and each LED's dimness, like spotlights.

For comparisons:

White, all on, full brightness VS 'Custom Spotlight mode'


In spotlight mode, all LEDs are dimmed except the one above the 45 degree fittings which I wanted to highlight.



I need to do something about the top LED strip, maybe slice up the aluminium stand to make a shroud to hide it. The rest of the LED strips are well hidden and can't be seen when off.

Cable management and drain valve:

This is the best I can do TBH, there is a lot of space but Lian Li did not give any help in the cable management department. They sort of let the user be creative about it. Panel closes fine and no cables can be seen from the other side, so I am happy to leave as is.

More frontal pictures:
(Added a few more doses of dye, no longer has green hue under low light on camera)



Dark room pictures (glass on):

I'm not sure if this question has been asked or not in this thread and I can't find information on it anywhere:

How many PCIE riser cards / extension cables does the case come with? I have a Maximus Gene VII and besides the GPU, I have a discrete sound card and a discrete wireless-AC card. Will I need 3 extensions so I can use my additional cards? Would it even work in the first place? This is a gorgeous case and I would love to pick one up. I'm using a Silverstone FT03B for reference.

Also - what kind of antibacterial did you use, if any? Kill coils, drops, a UV lamp somewhere? The build is awesome and looks fantastic.

It only comes with one PCI-E cable, you would need 3 extensions yes, any brand should work but only Lian Li ones (expensive) will mount properly to the support bracket.

I've also got an FT03, brilliant little case wink.gif

I used premixed Mayhems pastel white, no additional antibacterials are needed. No UV lamp, and the dye is not UV.

Excellent. I saw the Lian Li risers on Amazon - they're bloody expensive for what they are... $75 each... I'm still debating if I want to rebuild into the O6SX. Expensive but I'd get a more modern and rather gorgeous chassis. Maybe this time I could do some actual water cooling in a custom loop.

Your build is inspiring! Thanks for the replies!!

I would just cheap out and use generic pci-e risers for none heavy cards like soundcards and WIFI, $75 is way over the top.

But if you are air cooling, go for a reference blower GPU, literally no airflow down there.

The FT03 would be hard to drop though wink.gif, bought mine on release and I'm still using it for my HTPC, The small footprint makes it one of a kind, I loved it.

I think I'd have to use the LL risers... I can't find any others that have a right-angle to them except for actual riser cards. At that point I'd need an extension cable and riser card for each add on. I'll keep hunting. The FT03 is awesome. I've thought about cutting a nice window into it and putting a smoked glass pane on it. Oh and you nailed the point - I do have a blower-style card (Ref. 980 Ti SC). With the FT03 I've only had reference cooler-style GPUs.

For your particular build what was one or two of your biggest challenges you had to overcome? I've seen the O6SX has the 3 fans up top and the one on the back - how is the air flow in general? GPU aside does everything else stay cool?

Edit: From where the GPU installs at the bottom would a closed loop AIO be able to reach the top? Corsair has a custom bracket (HG10 N980) and their coolers... The question is if the hoses are long enough or case short enough. Any thoughts?
