Night's Watch - An RV02 project

Welcome to my new project based on my second favourite case of all time (so far ) the silverstone rv02 (my favourite is the rv01).

The name of the project is Night's Watch, based on the men in black who guard the wall in a song of ice and fire (almost finished the first book, I love it ), they get called crows by the wildlings, the poorer brother of the raven according to the lord commander

The colours for the theme of my project will be black, white and orange (keeping white and orange as subtle as possible)

so, onto some pictures

next to my old r3, it's a little taller

as you can see, I have the older model rv02, with the non air penetrator fans

Build fully done, I didn't want to take pics during building, as I thought there would be too many

5870

my orange painted pci brackets and custom xigmatek xlf/bitfenix spectre hybrid fan

Specs (other than the case) as of 27th of June are:

i5 3570k (not overclocked)
his 5870 1gb
asus p8p67-le
8gb of 1600mhz corsair dominator ram
prolimatech megahalems (run passively)
60gb ocz vertex
120gb corsair force 3
1tb 7200rpm hdd
1Kw Silverstone strider

I intend on doing these things in this project:

replace the power leds with orange ones (light bar on the front)
watercool the whole rig (need to get a different rad and graphics card for this, as my 5870 is too big to fit a rad on top of the fans)(this will require some cutting to fit my intended rad, which is a 3 x 180mm rad)
make custom cables for my silverstone strider and braid them
add some lighting
any other cosmetic touches I decide on along the way

more updates coming soon.......

Nice build, the orange accents look very nice. Any plans on painting the red section of the card orange?
