I agree, the pink acrylic really "pops" with the pastel white. I'm sure she'll love it thumb.gif

Cheers brute tongue.gif
Turned out great and not the disaster (color wise) that it could have.

Pics average I'm afraid as was picking up LED reflection/glare - LEDS at 100% power
In reality it is much brighter in the middle area of the mobo than it looks in the photos redface.gif
and
the tubes don't look washed out, but still are really nice and pink.
Anyways I suspect that the lights will be turned down or even off most of the time.

The GPU side panel is a Bitfenix issue and is pretty much front to back at mobo tray height.



The "reservoir" side I just pulled off the paint hanger for a little look see. Acrylic Panel not fitted yet.
Without relocating the front panel switch and ports (which many people have successfully done) I was restricted to a viewing are from the front of the res.
For a balance look, I went with 90mm front and bottom (~ mobo tray height) while the top and rear have 30mm.
Semi successful at rounding off the corners rolleyes.gif

Try to ignore the power button cable just draped across the reservoir, last little job before handing over.
Maybe a few more pics 1st in daylight tomorrow.

ASRock fan control in BIOS is abysmal mad.gif

Luckily SpeedFan does the job very well.
PWM control over the Vardars works perfectly from the CPU header.
50% = 1355 RPM which is about the same noise level as the front 180mm fan on medium (900rpm)
Under load that keeps the 4.2 3570K mid 60's.

Damn,now this build makes the air-cooled HTPC I'm planning to give to the gf look like a potato!

Very late to the party , but I just want to say that I love all the attention to detail you've put into Paragon,it really paid off..

Very,very nice Prodigy build,I believe that your friend is going to go crazy over it thumb.gif
