I have the case stripped down, have installed the 3 x 120mm Rads, and marked the front door up, you can see what i will be cutting out and then inserting a dark grey tinted piece of acrylic for a window. Hoping this will give a good effect when looking at the new 120mm TB VEGAS fans

Front door mod done, it gave me know end of problems with the plastic melting instead of cutting with my jigsaw, so didnt get the finish i wanted so ive used edging strip to tidy it up, but im not happy with that so im looking for better quality edging strip.


However i reckon those blue LEDS will look a treat on the vegas fans behind that smoked acrrylic.

Heres the fans.




And heres how the Front door window mod looks


Heres the updated door now its been redon and im also going to redo the silverstone badge under the window to centralize it..

OK some more pictures coming now, ive had some more bits as i managed to get a GTX670 and a Corsair AX760 PSU off Amazon for a bargain price, saved about £100 in total compared to other retailers

So today concentrates mainly on testing and getting the GTX670 Water block and back plate installed.

First up pre-testing the GTX670 using linux mint...



Now some pics with the card stripped and then with the Waterblock and backplate installed...





OK thats all for now folks more very very soon..

Yes it is by exactly 1mm to the left, well spotted Tom, it seems more pronounced in the photograph than in reality for some reason, but i had to do that to avoid further problems, im hoping when its all up and running and the vegas fans are lit up that it will be even less recognizable. The main thing is that my son will be happy, this will be his first ever PC.
