Hi there! This is my first build log on the site and what better way to start than with a freshly delivered 900D!

The theme (love it or hate it) is EK's line of CSQ products - every one you can think of. The color theme for the build will be green, white, gray and black. It will consist entirely of custom acrylic tubing instead of regular hose tubing, of course I may at some point during the build realize I need to use regular hose - but I will try not to. In addition to the acrylic lots of bitspower rotary's and extenders will be used. Also, I have never done a build this big nor have I ever used acrylic so this should be interesting. Please note that I am a perfectionist and every tube and design element will be 100% the best it can be smile.gif

There will be two separate loops: 1- CPU, Mobo, Ram and 2- GPU's.

Now, in general I lead a busy life so this wont be one of those build logs that has a picture and description of every screw I mount smile.gif However I will frequently update with photo's and, when needed, go into detail on a lot of the general ideas for the build and the case.

I don't think I could be more jealous of this. Definitely watching this one. 900D is gorgeous (I'd buy one if I could afford one!)
