    Mods:
    Sleeved cables
    Custom LED lighting
    Aluminium panels with replica LED trace
    Custom motherboard plate
    Cable routing
    Custom GPU backplate
    Acrylic tubing for watercooling


    My PC has been a labour of love since late January. Everything started with wanting a glowing floor, kind of like the light midplate that can be bought from ColdZero for the Silverstone TJ07.

    Since then, I have created a design, borrowed from the Asus Z77 series which has the special LED trace, which separates and shields the SupremeFX III sound chip from the rest of the motherboard. This design is found on various aluminium panel which all have been hand cut and detailed by me. No CNC machine here!

    I was also inspired by a build log which used acrylic hard tubing to plump their water cooled loop. So in natural inspired fashion, I went about and created my own WC loop using hard tubing, and tied in the tubing with the theme of my build.

    All in all, I am extremely happy with my computer and consider this mod finished. But I am already itching to start on another project!

    So, thanks for reading, and hopefully see you at the next build!

    9/10. Why having the 2+ PCI-E power connector zip tied on there? Also I love everything. Especially the backplate for the 780 and all the light.

    Thanks for the votes and comments everyone :)

    I just noticed, as the voting stands right now, the graph looks like a hand with the middle finger up! HAHA!

    Hey everybody!

    I have shamelessly entered my TJ08 ROG V rig into another competition at Minimalistic PC's, and hope for your support :) After you have checked out all the great PC's there, and still think that my work is worthy of your vote, then you will know what to do ;)

    Either way, thank you for your support, and see you at the next project!
