    That is hellaciously impressive and clean. Too think if I spent a little time on my case, I could keep it well organized like that. Well done Nate and I really love your PSU!!!! :D

    Oh haha, actually I'm still PLANning to paint the outer silver shell, the fans themselves were simple, just take some needlenose pliers and yank of the 4 tiny resistors on each led!

    I don't usually browse project logs, but hey it's nflesher so why not?

    Your rig is very Very VerY VeRY VERY VERY impressive. Cables and tubing are done very neatly.

    The best and most unique part of your build is the SUBTLE UV lighting that builders (including me) often go overboard with. In your rig, it's just enough to light up the water tubing and cast sort of a silhouette showing your awesome gear. You've got just the perfect amount of lighting.

    thanks bro ;) I'm not sure you can tell but I actually have 2x 12" UV tubes framing the window on the inside, one on the top and on on the left side (next to the back of the case) [the one that you see at the top of the case is actually just a reflection off of the side of the radiator ;)]
    I could take another pic if anyone wants, it was a big challenge to get ALL of the cold cathode hardware mounted on the side panel without any of it showing, as most people might know there's a big honkin' power converter with them as well...

    oh haha k, well the blue led really clashed with my theme so I disabled the blue leds
    as for painting, I have a can of Rust-O-Leum Professional "High Performance Enamel" "Gloss Black" that I use for just about any of the painting I do, great stuff, it's what I used on the A.C. Ryan rad grille, I'm planning to just put a very light layer on the ram cooler

    *if you want to maintain the blue leds, I would definitely remove the fans prior to painting*

    For some reason I likened it to a museum in my head. Sneeze close enough to it and something might get knocked out of place. LOL :roll: I don't think I could ever do that with any setup I do.

    Could it possibly be that delicate considering how often I swap parts? ;) This baby is as sturdy as any :)

    lol bunchie that's completely different tubing :p and regardless of whether that wire mesh is metal or what, that's why you can't bend it at all, that's actually the primary purpose of the mesh, to prevent kinking in industrial applications ;)
