    I didn't take many pictures but here is the midplate. Took me 2 tries. Good thing I bought extra acrylic.

    I'm going to send it out to have a honeycomb grill cut into it where the PSU exhaust is.

    I sleeved the rest of the tubes.

    Finished the 2nd 8pin CPU power cable.

    Came out OK.

    Got my 950 :D

    And installed it.

    Got more fittings. You can't see where they go but I was able to use some Q fittings to make a drain port at the bottom of each rad. I also was able to replace some silver fittings with black ones.

    Got a RAID card! It works great but sadly, WHS can only recognize 2TB partitions. So I had huge issues at first but for now it just gives me the ability to have 8 more HDDs. It also helps with cable management.

    So the system is filled up and running now. I got WHS v1 installed and things are going smoothly right now. I just have to finish up the midplate and install the rest of the temp sensors and then I can call this mod complete!

    Hope you enjoy the photos. Cheers till next time!

    Small update.

    I drilled the HDD holders to allow 4 more drives per side.

    Now I need to figure out how to get more air flow. I'm thinking of cutting out a chunk of the side of these and maybe a slit between the 2 holes but I'm not sure yet. I play with it a bit this weekend.

    Quick photo of the case.

    Cheers till next time!

    So its been awhile. I was waiting a long time to get plexi parts in and I had to travel for work for several months. Now I'm back and ready to finish this thing up.

    First up is the plexi. I got my midplate back and the honeycomb fan grill for the PSU.

    The grill was a bit smaller than the hole so I had to use some hot glue to get it to stay.

    I spent the money and got some Mayhems Pastel Gigabyte Orange Coolant. It looks pretty freaking good. Now, I do wish it was a bit darker but it only looks light in direct light.

    Here you can see how the cables and tubing are routed through the midplate. [​IMG]

    Here are just a whole bunch of photos I took. The blocks look amazing. I'll take final pictures in light and dark.
