Does look really Nice Webbo, think Id have stummped for red under the carbon on the PSU though just for a small flash of colour.

Yeah I almost did do that but thought it might look a bit too cheesy. I have loads of red vinyl so might do something with that.

I think it would look quite cool having the red set like that. Will add some depth and texture to the PSU.

Decided to stick with the black/carbon look for the psu as it looks more pro rather than cheesy.

Minor update: Memory

Here's how the sticks look stock:



Time for a bit of domination



Now I could have just sold these and bought a set of dominator GT's for the same aesthetic effect but this kit out performs the dominators by a fair margin (I know because I have reviewed both ).

The edges need sharpening up a tad but thats an easy enough job.

Now for the fans:

I innitially bought some of these in 120 & 140mm guise:





and while they are good fans, I really wanted some with red fins. Choices were a bit thin on the ground. Phobya Nano-G fans had the look but not the performance. Enermax Apolish fans also would have fit the bill but the cfm was dire and clearly these put looks over performance.

Enter the Prolimatech Vortex



These were perfect (apart from the price!) high cfm, low noise with great looks. Only problem was the cables wern't braided. Did I mention I hate braiding? Grrrr. Had to be done though:



Another 3 on order along with a 120mm Coolermaster sickleflow as the exhaust fan.

The plan is to have 3x140mm intakes along with another 140mm roof exhaust and 2x 140mm on the Super Mega HSF.

So as this case doesn't have inbuilt SSD holders I decided to mount the drive to the motherboard tray.

Sticking the SSD to the tray would have been the easiest option however plugging the cables in could dislodge the drive and make a mess of the vinyl so I used some old extended motherboard risers:



Didn't like the look of brass (not that anyone will see) so I heat'shrunk' those:



...and mounted it to the motherboard tray:

The hard drives should go connector side showing, however I don't like looking at cables and prefer to keep the look as clean as possible so placed them this side around. Attaching the HD rack might take a little modding but thats the price I'll pay for a cleaner look.



The SATA cables were fiddly to do , especially as the connectors needed re-alligning to match up to the spacing of the HD's but I think they came up a treat:



and here's how they look attached:



Shame that they won't be seen....might change my mind about the clean look!
