Thanks, it's been a long road! I literally just looked at the photos throughout this project and its a massive transformation:

It went from a Thermaltake X9 - was dual loops, SLI 970



which was too big and limited our choice of desks

to the original Temporal Snow



To the refresh which I thought was done:



(Kinda annoyed I couldn't hide the wires for SSD as I wanted to mount it in the front above the fan - but wanted to keep cables to the absolute miniumum

to today

Awesome build man. Kudos to you.

I would be interested to know more about the method you used for painting the fittings. I'd be scared about paint damaging an o-ring or something.

Thanks

The actual fittings were already white - just to be sure we're talking about the same thing

I sprayed all the rotarys and extenders. I started doing them individually by sacrificing some older rotarys and end caps therefore covering the threads and orings

After day one I realised I could just screw all the fittings together and just use one end cap and one old rotary and paint them all at the same time. I literally spent a day to 2 days doing them as I could only do a half at a time

Hope this helps
