I want to enjoy when I mod, if i am pushed to go at beyond my pace it will just end up not done with the level of detail I wan't. I think it is important to enjoy the modding.

Amen!! Modding is a hobby/art not just something to do and be done with... in some cases ...in alot of cases the modding is the only thing that makes a computer more interesting to build, just because nowadays if you have alot of money and hands you can build a computer. Please don't take offense to the statement, not trying to belittle the task of building a computer. just saying that i believe modding, overclocking, and extreme cooling is what sets us apart from the aforementioned guy with money and hands.

The Take Over, The Breaks Over

So pretty much this build is gonna start to differ greatly compared to where we were when we rode into this log. Almost against my will, I think there will be a heap of red replacing the orange parts of this build but never fear, I think it will greatly improve the finished product. I'm still keeping within the Dark April theme but there just may be a few lights here and there though all of them connected to a switch panel of which you've already seen. The whole drive bay will be getting tidied which is absolutely necessary as the old layout made the insides look unfinished (well they kinda were...) and I'm adding 2 fill ports to this general area. Also I'm selling my multioption reservoirs in favour of something else. The res mounting is going to be drastically changed aswell if I can pull off what I have in mind. To top it all off, I'm dropping the mobo from the loop as I'd really like to sell and replace it and the CPU in the near future. I'd like to say I was close to being finished the modding but...

Meh, lets get something done.

The first card was easy but then what the hell is this??

After googling the mystical star screw, ebay saved me yet again. I got myself a lovely little kit complete with torx screw heads. But seriously evga! The same card with different screws??

Thanks guys.

This is what I've been staring at since last night just trying to figure out how to do what I want to do.

I love how this makes no sense at all, but still accurately describes our race...

I'm kinda the same but I rage alot when I mod. Theres never a screwdriver when I need it or I forget where I put my file. I lost my 580s for a while yesterday! Anyway, its not so enjoyable. The finished product is what does it for me.
