Ok here we go again...yeye...here's Jim with another unfinished project. Not this time lads. I've got some focus on this one and the wheels are already fully in motion
Silverstone TJ07 TTL'ified with House Of Kolor Candy Apple Red
over Gold (or maybe silver). Mirror black drive bays and internals.
Foxconn Blood Rage X58
XFX Radeon 4870x2 (crossfire possibly)
Enermax Revolution 950w
Dual Waterloop. Red Hose. Red plexi waterblock covers. Possibly a quad TFC rad. Possibly Swiftech 360w Tec CPU block (if i can keep it above ambient so i wotn need to insulate)
Asus Xonar Essence STX (man this card sounds LUSH).
First lot of components arrive today
Wow a month later and the second lot of goodies arrived - this time from Performance-PCs.Com:
Red tubing ftw..
Some nice barbs...
And a lovely set of feet
: Just a small update today. I received a package compliments of Apem Components....
What you're looking at is a Piezo switch with Red LED Halo surround (camera photographed white bit as blue). This switch retails for a whopping £60 (if you can actually get hold of it!) and has no moving parts at all. It's effectively touch sensitive.
Big thanks to APEM for the sponsorship
: OK just a small update while I wait in the watercooling parts and several other small bits.
After about 1hr of carefully making the hole bigger I finally managed to fit the switch in. It would have been a perfect fit if it hasn't been for the threads on the switch making it just that tiny bit larger.
The switch does admittedly stick out a little bit further than I would have liked, but I still think it looks bloody awesome personally.
Also test fitted the Blood Rage board and Corsair GT ram in there. The red on the board was almost a perfect match IMO
- Another small update. FINALLY got the correct size screws for fixing the feet to the case (without having to re-drill) today. Tom will back me up on just how hard it is to find screws that actually fit this case.
I didn't want to fit the feet directly to the case as they would undoubtedly leave rings in the paint if I ever decided to remove them. So enter the foam insulation tape
And then it was just a case of screwing them into place and taking some photo's of the sexy beast
: Yeiks, ages since my last update! I finally decided on some fans though. Enermax Twister Magma's....
