    I decided not to paint the red bar that came with the card. Looked to nice.

    I'm not done with this piece yet. Still needs a bit of filing.
    I'll still keep and eye on the temps when I get it up and running. Thanks for the info.

    That's pretty sweet. I saw the finished product of this but couldn't find the log. Thanks. Don't think I'll bring something like that. Started with mods about a year ago, this is probably the biggest one I've done.

    So looked like it was going to rain all day today. Finally did during the evening. Got a little bit done, didn’t want to get into much with the chance of rain.

    Got the removable hard drive cage done.

    Also got the top panel done.

    That’s it for today. Will be a slow week for updates as I will be out of town for two (maybe three) days.
    Thank you all for viewing :)

    Thank you :)

    Power went out in my neighborhood today and it took them a long while to fix it.
    Weather has been crazy here in Texas.
    [​IMG]
    One minutes the sun is blasting and it's 39c out, the next it's pouring rain out.

    Since power was out, decided to start putting the case back together. Just one picture of the build today :(
    [​IMG]

    The right side panel isn't done yet. Probably won't be done until the end of the week if this rain keeps up.
    Will update as soon as I can :)

    That's looking awesome man. Can't wait to see it finished, it's gonna be good




    I'm a total noob at sleeving, just tried it for the first time last week, did my whole PSU with paracord and I think it turned out pretty good, it was way easier than I thought.

    Hope I'm not derailing too much, I'll put the pics in a spoiler:

    I found paracord pretty easy to work it also. Very nice job on those cables. :toast:

    Thank you both :)



    Sorry I haven’t updated in a bit. Was out of town last couple of days. From what I was told it was raining the whole time I was gone so not much time lost. Got home late last night and had a couple of boxes waiting for me :D

    Yeah, the Noctuas don't fit perfectly in here but they sure do look a lot better in here then they would in my main, red and black rig XD

    I think if you took the rubber dampers off the corners of the Noctuas it might look a little better.

    Thank god. The Sabertooth is probably my favourite board of all time, and FINALLY somebody made it actually look good inside something. The colour scheme of that board is such an irritation to me, but the components are great. MAKE IT IN BLACK GODDAMNIT.

    Thank you everyone :)
    I'll try try the Noctuas without the rubber corners. I'll also see what I can do about the shiny rad.

    Only three pictures for now. They were more teasers than anything :D I'll have more up once the NZXT Hue arrives, which should be tomorrow. Maybe one more pic tonight?

    Yes, I used red and black rather than all black. Asked a few friends and majority vote went to red and black.

    Thank you all again for following and commenting :D
    I can bring more pics if wanted :)
