One minor gripe though, the cover plate, I wouldn't have form-followed the cutout on the outside quite so much, with the ridges? I'd have widened the whole plate a little bit just so there was no need for the extra 'step' so it looks more like the case with only having single corners etc. but i'm nit picking totally and this is awesome so yeah.. keep it up!
You mean the 'bottom' side with the double step? Yeah....I kind of agree with you. I could cut another one,this one will have to stay for I Series tho.

I couldnt resist putting the Caselabs build back together before clearcoating,it will help me get the airbrush stencils where I want them to be as I can visualize the layout much easier. Then strip down,airbrush then clearcoat!














Dat Green tho....

Its starting to all come together now,once the case is cleared over then the rest is plain sailing. Airbrushing,clearing,HDD/SSD's to fit then cable it all up. Then its res and the final tube up.

Hopefully this will all be done for I Series at the end of August!

Looking good B :-)

The motherboard is awesome, you don't really need any more than what it offers.

A quick peek before I finish up scuffing the yellow with a scotch pad to soften the lines and give it a used feel.

First time with Inspire H20 airbrush paint....and my last,back to solvent for me,viscosity had to be just right and I just couldnt get it,resorted to airbrush flush as a thinner in the end.



If the weather is good then clearcoating tomorrow.

So,while im waiting for the skies to clear,I got on with making the res.

I did take video of the machine in action but as per usual left autofocus off so that was ruined.....but the res wasnt!



The res has a rebate on the thick main body so its flush with the paint work,both end plates bolt thru







First time acrylic machining,so easy...I love it...I dont love the clear up but machining it is fun!

Now I have to put a slight radius on the leading edge of the res front and go all in with lowfats polishing guideto make it glass clear,I have 2 types of oring here,nitrile and a white silicon cord so they need to be cut to size also.
New bolts are on their way,not those nasty pan heads either,CSK and cups all round!

CMON WEATHER,GIMME A BREAK!!!!!

Well,she is full of water,now to clear the bubbles and get the OS installed.

Cross my fingers that the PSU jump wiring works correctly now......



Res is solid,not even a hint of a leak,I did have a leaky fitting (nicked oring) but that was found on the air test....didnt help that it was in the bowels of the rig so everything had to come out!!!

I was also thinking about the DDC and the vibration it would put into the res,Im happy to say that it doesnt vibrate at all,the mass of the res with water in makes a fine dampener.

Seems my next job for tomorrow is get the OS installed,clean all my mucky finger prints of it and take some pictures,I have a nice place in mind too.
