I have been wanting to do something different with my pc for some time now. Upgrades, as far as, mobo/proc/ram/gpu have crossed my mind, but, I don't feel the need to do that, as I am running everything I play/do, just fine. So, this is where I stand, Lets give my Lian Li a Makeover!
This makeover will entail new tubing, barbs, blocks, pump, rad, res, and a complete powder coat job(if my contact pulls through for me, if not, I will pursue other options.) Possibly a few minor hardware upgrades. I'm aiming for class, and elegance, not flashy and flamboyant. I plan on putting my utmost concentration in this build. I hope it turns out well.

CPU: Intel Core i7 950

The job for today, case disassembly, and putting the components on my tech bench, as this PC is used daily.
Here is how it went:
Setting up the tech bench, this is where it all will rest for the time being:

Thats all for now, MUCH more to come.
