Here's another quick update, playing with some more photography. This time I took some shots of the sleeved cables from IceModz. Really happy with how they look and feel, Mundi did a great job on them and they seem to match the rest of the build pretty well.

I received them a few days ago but haven't had time to check them out properly and to take some good shots of them. The yellow seems to be UV reactive I think which isn't a bad thing tongue.gif


Thanks for checking it out. I'm just about to get started on the vinyl stickers. I found some pretty cool Fallout ones biggrin.gif



Man this thing does not disappoint. Can't wait to see those stickers!

Thanks a lot guys! biggrin.gif

Here's what I prepared for the stickers:

For SSD and RAM:



For GPU, on the front or on the backplate or on both. I will cut around the cog wheel



For the PSU covers on both sides. I will cut around the numbers



For the mb cover, just on top of the I/O



And finally for the res, but I'm not sure on this one




I also ordered a Vault Boy Strength Bobblehead from Bethesda biggrin.gif





With the stickers, I need to make sure the yellow and blue match between them and also with the colors on the case. But I don't know how to do that, all I have to use is paint, lightroom and MS word lol.

If you have any suggestions, please share redface.gif


Cheers, Alex

a good and legal way would be a free more advanced pixel editor like gimp and then match the colors. of course PS is more powerful, but I don't think its necessary for the things you're planning to do (matching colors lol).

to match it with the case colors I would take a good photograph of it (with enough light) and use a color pick tool (should look like a pipette) and color the other parts with that biggrin.gif

Hope its understandable smile.gif

Cheers from another Alex

Yeah, I want one of the first two to put on my car smile.gif. And a couple more for future use. Also, like I said before, if you end up with any extras, PM me smile.gif.

UPDATE

All my packages arrived on Monday and since then I've been very busy working on the build. I hope you guys are gonna be as pleased as I am with how it looks. It's nearly ready to start tubing up. I'm just missing some screws for the ram block as when I changed it to the clear top, some screws where shorter than other for some reason mellowsmiley.gif EK!!! I had to order some screws and they're still on their way.

I gotta tell you, it was a struggle trying to get all those cables in while they where all connected to the PSU haha. They are long enough to just reach the components while the PSU is inside fully, otherwise they wouldn't fit inside the case. So I had to hook them all up to the PSU first tongue.gif



Firstly here is the finished motherboard tray cover, with the LED strip stuck to it facing down so that it will light up the edges of the acrylic biggrin.gif





And also here is my version of the EK Supremacy EVO! biggrin.gif











AND finally here is the build biggrin.gif








Notice the Vault Boy logo biggrin.gif















You can just barely see the SSD hiding behind the 24 pin cable tongue.gif



Stuck another Vault-Tec logo on this side of the pumps too





Now the only downside to my cable routing is that every fan, LED strip and pumps are connected to 6 x 3pin PCBs on each side of the PSU, without being able to access them with the PSU inside. And once I tube up I'm not gonna be able to reach the 24 pin to jump start the PSU in order to fill and bleed the loop. If I would have left the cables out, as hard as it was getting them in, I doubt I could have gotten everything in nicely and connected with a filled loop. What this means is that I will have to fill the loop with everything powered on worriedsmiley.gif, I think I could disconnect the CPU power cable and GPU, but the 24pin I definitely won't be able to reach once tubes are in, I can barely reach it now. I'm pretty confident in my routing that I won't have any leaks but the thing I'm worried about is the powering on and off while I fill the loop, would that damage the MB?

Anyways let me know your thoughts on that and please share your opinion about the build thus far redface.gif

I will get some nice pics up once the build is finished, I didn't have any room for my set up this time haha

Cheers, Alex
