It's all controllable. I can switch the whole lot off if I want to I have separated it into zones, pretty much the same way the Alienware software does it, so I can turn off the inside but leave the outside and vice versa. Ram is on a separate channel to the halos, flow meter and LED strips. So yeah, each zone can be completely disabled.

Which after about three weeks is probably how it will end up lmao.

Ed. Don't quote me on this but I *think* you can dim the lights with the Farbwerk? I will find out soon enough I know you can on the Alienware lights by adding black.

You can do LOTS with the Farbwerk. Dimming is the tip of the iceberg.

Sweet, 'cause those ram sticks are awful bright lol.

That's basically why I tried to create the inside as neutral and reflective as possible. I can literally choose any colour I want and have a different rig every day that way. I don't like committing to one colour tbh, it's so 2008.

Got some spare time at last, I wanted to say a few words


First of all the bloopers which I thought were kinda funny!

That lovely pump cover I made didn't quite go as intended. It barely fits with a wedgie and the alien badge is not even visible lol. I will address that soon. Bad miscalculation though

Next up, fan extensions. I bought 6 on Amazon without checking the length. Turns out they are 150mm, so pretty useless lol. I have since ordered three more lots from ocuk, but each time my maths was crap and so I've ordered a fourth. I apologise profusely for this, as it must be annoying.

I was getting a smear on the floor screen from where it got warm and was pressing against the 3mm clear Plex layer. This has now been rectified.

What I wanted to say more than anything though was a huge thanks to all of you guys here (most namely Warchild, Cenedd and Bart) for their help,advice,and suggestions.

One thing I've always liked about myself is that I can sense the constructive part of constructive criticism and see it as advice and use it positively whilst never EVER thinking that I am perfect or beyond blatantly good advice.

My log photos are never great, I talk too much but I listen,too.

So I doff my cap to you guys. I can't do this s**t without you and this place has been the rock for me and the build.

Another thank you to Scuba Steve, who kindly sent me some RGB cables. D'you know what's weird? I used the last one to connect up the last RGB run.

Daylight ! oh how I have missed thee.



Fitted the GPU into the riser, fitted the stop plugs and uh oh we have a problem. Can you see it?



I wouldn't even mind if they were actually the same bloody size *waves fist*



Total bust that was. I guess I will have to resort back to the sodding hex wrench bolts

I'd be more annoyed that the logo is differently sized.

Yup could probably have pulled it off then *sigh*. Mind you, it has made me realise how much I don't want a logo on that part, so I've ordered two of these.



And will use the premium plugs to fill the holes in the res etc.

Yep and this is why I strongly recommend barrow. I don't really like the BP plugs you have either, prefer their newer ones with the knurled grip.

I have one of those in chrome (look in the back of the GPU ports) but I am terrified about paying £7 odd and getting a different logo 'cause they were trying to save on ink lol.
