Hey Everyone

Few new pics for you all I did a little bit more modification plan on doing some additional work to make the thing pop even more hope you all enjoy and stay tuned smile.gif

I am planning to put some acrylic panels into cover up some of the unwanted cables that are a little messy. But should look really good once covered up. Will try to get more pics once that is in place. If anyone knows a place that can customize acrylic panels to match the back panel of the case that would be really helpful thanks. Feel free to drop links or message me in private smile.gif

I ended up using the EK pump res... I am trying to switch the d5 I have to a aquabus d5 to work with the aquaero. The radiators are hardware labs gts 240 one on the top and the other in the front. I hopefully will be making progress soon. trying to Make a nice look psu cover to work cover the unwanted cables make it cleaner...

If you all have any questions please feel free to ask.

Any feedback you have that will help me please feel free to reach out to me.

Since you mentioned using a PSU cover, have you considered getting some custom cables from somewhere like Mod-One?

The cables in the picture are ones I custom made... MDPC-X is such a fine product biggrin.gif

Woops! i only had time to quickly scroll through before and hadn't paid any attention to the PSU end, just the component side. Ignore my comment then!

Honestly, I like to show off custom cables. The only thing I'd want a shroud for is the green PCB Aquero.

I have a great fondness for MDPC-X sleeving. I'll have several sets ordered over the next few months smile.gif

Its all good no worries lol biggrin.gif I been so busy working on certain things that I have to finish breaking things down and begin to clean the RADs. Once I do that its just a matter of putting it all back together and making it look awesome.
