We do still have the dark gray powder. A while back we finally figured out what was causing the problem with the inconsistent color. The powder does not fluidized as well as it should when making its way through the powder coating gun. You can think of it like not shaking a spray can prior to using it. The fix was to use really small batches of powder and then the color comes out pretty good. I would say it's between a 95-100% color match.

Just finished my first WC build using Caselabs SM5...I think I did...ok. Tbh the colour scheme was a bit eclectic as I just choose some things I thought would be interesting, it doesn't always work but I didn't want to have the standard black / red! It's 95% done.

Acrylic tubing isn't 100% straight, and is complete hand bent using only straight compression fittings. I didn't want to commit to buying loads of expensive angles etc when I didn't know how many I needed:

Let me know what you guys things or if there are any improvements I should consider.

Specs:

Case: Caselabs SM5 gunmetal exterior, black interior
PSU: Corsair AX760i
Motherboard: Asus Maximus Gene VII
CPU: i7 4790K 4.65GHz @ 1.28V
RAM: 2x8b Gskill Trident 2400MHz 10-12-12 @ 2420mhz or something insignficant
GFX: MSI Geforce GTX 970 4g
Storage: 256GB Samsung 850pro OS drive, 1TB Western digital black single platter for non SSD priority programs, 4TB Western digital green for infrequent access storage.

CPU Cooler: EKWB Supremacy Evo
VGA Cooler: EKWB GTX970 TF5
Radiators: 1x 120.3 AlphaCool XT45, 1x 120.2 AlphaCool XT45 (all intake, top configured as pull, front as push)
Fans: 2 x Gentle Typhoon AP-14, 3 x Corsair SP120, 1 x AF120
Pump: Aquacomputer D5 Pump
Reservoir: Aquacomputer whole modular aqualis stuff - damn confusing... top with LED mounts, glass cylinder
Fittings: Straight EKWB HDC fittings
Tubing: e22 tubing

Cable management: LutroO Telios Black / Dark red/ Darkred+black/ Purple heatshrinkless


Extras: Aquaero 5 LT mounted behind to control fans: Not there at the moment, broke needs RMA which is why i'm using motherboard headers.

things to be added: NZXT Huehueheuhuehuehue--gonna see if it helps. Will cut the thing in half cause taking up a full depth 5.25 inch drive is stupid.

haha, thanks everyone. I'm happy my build is met with approval =D

As for beer, I'm more partial towards cider, but cheers anyway!

(the coolant is EKWB Clear Mix, could have used distilled but figured some anti algae/corrosion can't be a bad idea either)

Count me in.

It’s been said a thousand times but I’ll say it again. Exceptional packaging, exquisitely machined, amazing finish, and not a scratch on her. I’m absolutely delighted, and putting her together was a hoot.

And the happiness of receiving a Case Labs case keeps spreading! Gives me warm fuzzies every time someone gets one for the first (or event he fourth) time!
