I think I may've just found my future case. Nice color coordination too! Subbed.

Hey guys!

Some small update...

I had to reseat the backplate and water block, this is the order which I changed it to:

screws
metal backplate
rubber backplate
motherboard
Pvc washers (x2 on each screw)
metal washer
nut
waterblock
spring
thumb nut



If this'll short my board, please let me know!


I also got the extra 2ft of tubing that I ordered for the res to rad. I ran it through the back of the case, but I had to sacrifice the rubber grommet in order to do so (one on top right). I might just remove the grommet, but for now I cut the grommet so I can place it around the cables and tube.


MOAR PICTUREZ!

Comparing the sleeving to the motherboard, colors are perfect.


Behind the seens, tubing going through the back and a peek of my messy room



And my favorite picture .





Still awaiting my other order of sleeving as well as the newegg order

itttttt came!!! =DDDDD

and I got some bad news as well, but good news first as always

newegg shipped everything using packing peanuts and bubble wrap. huge step up for me from the brown paper


GPUs...

Only came with the bare minimum. I don't mind though since they were pretty cheap




Samsung f3 500gb...


mushkin ddr3 6gbs ram


X650 psu


This thing just screams quality. From the velvet bag to the box

Notice for the fan turning off when there isn't much load

Fully modular goodness


Sharkoon fan for the radiator

Cable comes pre-sleeved very nicely. Lots of adapters included, very nice build quality.




As far as the bad news goes, I don't have the time to put the rig together and leaktest. And so, the build will be post poned until the 26th. I'll only have the time to sleeve the psu and that's where I need your help


Someone please recommend me a few patterns in which I should sleeve my pci-e, 8-pin cpu, and 24pin power connectors. +reps to those who help A little diagram will be appriciated (eg: B B B B R B B B R B B B)

Thanks

I don't think theres any right pattern. Just random, like this:

RRBRBBBRRBRR
BRRBBRRRBBRB

Thats for the 24 pin power.
