As and when parts turn up I shall post an update and as I go along I will update.

1. Decide what barbs to get (COMPLETED)
2. Paint inside of HAF 932 satin black (COMPLETED)
3. Install Side window (Undecided yet)
4. Sleeve all cables (COMPLETED)
5. Overclock system. aiming for 3.6Ghz - 4GHz (COMPLETED)
6. Change all PSU connectors to black blocks
7. Modify the pump with the solder mod to make a DDC Ultra

I am wanting to go for an orange and black theme so that is why I have opted for the Xigmatek fans/UV orange tubing & orange MDPC sleeving

Well after falling asleep instantly last night I took the photo's today.
Not the best quality and it looks like a chaos of wires but its just in the sleeving stage.

Zip ties will help me tidy them after I am done.

Hoping to get some more sleeving done today.

done the following tests:

Linx passed 20 runs (Fig 1)
Intel Burn passed 5 runs (Fig 2)
3D Vantage result (Fig 3)
GPU temp under full load (fig 4)

ALL temps under load are shown in realtemp and then after finishing the test I let it idle for 5 minutes and the current temp is idle temp at the time.
