Hi guys,

Getting closer to finishing the build!

Received the cables from CableMod and also did a special paint job on the reservoirs which wasn't really hard to do!























Here's the reservoir!





And more components going in the case, starting to take shape!













Cable management! The reason they are like that so far is that there will be some different extensions for the 24pin and GPU cables which will hopefully arrive in time from Merco Mods. As the build needs to be ready by Sunday, not sure if they will be here in time unfortunately.



You can also see a sneak peak at the finished top panel here.

Let me know what you guys think! Not too long now, will have to rush through a few things for the build log in order to upload everything by Sunday.

Stay tuned for more.

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

Here are the final pieces going in the build!

Awesome new Primochill SX Revolver fittings! I'm loving the new finish Primochill now offer on their fittings, these are the matte black ones and will go nicely with the build.

















Also some incredible looking waterblocks from Bitspower! These have been installed on the ASUS STRIX GTX 980. Two of them going in the build.











Finally some very sexy looking memory, the AVEXIR Raiden Series Red Tesla ROG Certified memory!





















Looking very nice in the system with a sneak peak at the copper tubing!





Final pics coming up!

Thanks for checking it out!

Cheers,

Alex

Nice colours and finish of the case mate. The red and blue work quite well on the inside

Thanks a lot! I think the Raiden works well in this build too, makes it looks more sci-fi haha. The black cables work well however I will have others in, just didn't arrive in time

Thanks a lot! I try my best to take good pics and show as much as I can in the build log. I had to rush it in the end in order to get it all finished in time

Ah you mean the helmet or? Haha I worked so hard on that, wanted the case to look like Isaac Clarke, that was the idea from the start :P

Glad you like everything else

That's how effort looks like, I'm surprise at how well the colors get along. Looks too perfect. Well done
