You have to own one to understand how really great this case is. It really make cable routing and watercooling as simple as possible and avoids plenty of mods.

Looks really good. I am following with great interest.

Might I suggest that you create some blind or cover for the wires coming out of the PSU. It might enhance your by all means excellent looking single sleeved cables even more.

Also what is the bottle of Axe for in the last image you posted showing remaing parts? Experimenting with new cooling agents?

Thanks for the suggestion. I am actually planning to cover those bottom cables with either some large black sleeving or fabric. Gotta say, I love everything about this PSU except it's cables. First of all they make the 2nd motherboard 8-pin cable a permanent one (which I don't use) and I have to hide.it away. Also the connectors are pretty cheap quality, and of course the color scheme of the sleeving is really just unpleasant to look at. As a result of all that I decided to get those single braided extenders (which also save me a ton of work later doing it myself). Other than all that, I am more than happy with the performance and quality of this PSU.

Oh yes and you can ignore that bottle of Axe. I didn't actually mean it to get in there, just was too lazy to edit it out, lol.

Unfortunately not many pics tonight since it was the exact same process and I'm sure you guys get the idea. However a GPU shot is here and I think you will notice something quite impressive.


Hint: Week of Production

GPU Shot (2nd Card)

I will admit this is probably one of the thickest pastes I have used but it performs excellently. With this paste you're not supposed to spread it yourself. All you do (depending on what you're applying it on) you either use the single dot or 5 dot method and then let the heatsink squeeze and spread it all over the chip. However, if you want to make it a lot easier, hold the TIM syringe under a hot water faucet for about 20 mins and once you feel the syringe itself is hot you can bet the paste inside has warmed up and is easy to spread. I did this and it made the TIM a lot easier to apply.
