Hi guy's,

Here is a update of the build so far,

Thermaltake X71 case.

I can not believe how much room is in this case.

I have added a old motherboard to measure up for the new motherboard tray I will be putting in to the case.

I need to cut of these little tabs off so I can start work on the new custom front.

Now you see me.

I need to drill out all the rivets on the back and top of the case so I can add my new motherboard tray I have use 5mm perplex, but need to change to 3mm so I have room for the pass through.

I have added a custom mid plate 5mm perplex this is only going to be used if I can not complete the custom res.

Added the tempered glass and a blue LED fan. Think it needs to be painted black.

Nodody can post in the sponsored section. You need to PM a moderator or editor (like myself) to move it, I moved it.

The information could've been found in the sticky.

Hi Guy's here is a small update.

I have added a hidden power button under my case near the front left leg. Its dead simple to do I just drilled the hole and drop it in I had some older power switch from a corsair build I did before xmas and just cut it down to size and sleeved it black. I have added some photos below.

I have turned the pump tops around so all the cables go out to the back of my case and sleeve them black I have a few photos below but once I am happy and made the partition I will make sure I take more photos so you can see where everything is placed and why.

Like I said just a small update will have more for you at the weekend.

Here is this weeks update,

I want to welcome a new sponsor to this project Nanoxia, They are going to supply the fluids to this build I am getting Opaque Green UV and the have mix me a custom Opaque purple these and going to pop.

Last weekend I added the fans to rads to check spacing, cable route and watercooling loop for the basement and added my drain port to the pump(photos below).

I redone the front fan intakes made them 10mm wider because I was having issues with the way the tempered glass was sitting on the old ones. I ran out of perplex to finish the front off but you can see how far I have got(photos below).

With me doing a custom res in the mid plate, I have had to re do the motherboard tray as I added holes for the pass throughs which are not going to line up with the new res. I have drawing a loop on the back of the motherboard tray to make sure I had room for the fitting and to check that I can run my cables.

I have place the motherboard and res on to the perplex to mark out all the holes and where I need to run the cables. I also added the motherboard stand off.

All photos below.

Once I get the fluid I will post some photos of the colours.

I do need some help I am not sure if I should go hard tube in the basement or stick to soft, feel free to leave a comment below.

I am hoping to get the custom res back this week and I will do a test fit, I also need to add a pass through from the basement to the back of motherboard tray. Once this is done the case will be off to paint then the fun starts with all the componets and doing the loop.

Thanks for checking out the post.
