    ok heres the update that i was talking about. This thing defines the whole build in my opinion. For me this is one of the best feature of the build

    Since the top 480 rad was shifted in the lower compartment of the casing, that space was left empty and was looking very odd. I couldve filled it up with fans but then thats not what this build is all about. Came up with an idea to put up iamextreme logo on top. A week and a half later, a friend of mine helped me bring my idea to life and sends me this

    I am literally in love with what he has created. So here we go.

    I hope you don't run into hyper threading problems.

    I saw a similar build with same motherboard and CPU's and he could not run a lot of programs with hyper-threading on and had to turn it off to run programs.

    Very cool build though!

    I am building something like your first project you show at the beginning. What kind of issues did you run into their on that build? You eluded to it at your opening.

    Maybe I can avoid them on my build. Thanks.

    thanks kciaccio.....the only problem i ran into was installing the motherboard block. I managed to damage the vrm circuits which in turn fried my board eventually. Thats the reason i didnt water cool the sr-2. Im just not good with installing motherboard blocks i guess.

    all the mod work on the case got done (except some sleeving). here are some preliminary shots

    [​IMG]

    Changed the PSU from all carbon Fiber to matt black and it looks better in my opinion

    [​IMG]

    Also the rad box got finished.

    Mounted the acquero on the rad box since there wasnt much in the case that needed to be controlled.

    Thats it for now. will start some cable routing now, see how to arrange cables in a neat manner which is really time consuming for me. But this time ill try to make it look as neat as possible. :)

    leeved sata cables yesterday and installed them on the board to see how they look. Attached them with zip ties temporarily so they can take this shape. All four sata cables will be connected to the ssd hotswap drive in the 5.25 bay area.

    Also covered up the lower compartment to see how it would look when build is completed.

    Switched on the logos to get a feel of how things would look

    Let us know how that works for you. I am using a Lian Li 4-in-1 bay (non-hotswap), and I'm not totally happy with it. Many of the other ones I've looked at have reviews that say either the sleds are cheap/crappy or that they kill the drives! I'm half-tempted to fabricate my own...
