    Yeah well you still made it work:) I bet your ambient temps and pretty good because you can't put on your side panel.


    I think Johnny said they were the Primo Flex 7/16" ID tubing.

    johnnyfiive, I think you've got a nice looking rig there. The dominant black and white is something I don't often see in custom computers. Nice work.

    I have gotten myself a black/blue Rogue last year. Mini-review:

    Pros:
    - Space for a long gfx card
    - Full ATX PSU in a mATX case
    - The carrying handle OWNS for lan parties
    - Moddable (you can screw out the HDD/DVD bays) though I haven't done much to it yet.

    Cons:
    - Fan mounting holes are flimsy
    - PSU on top is not ideal if you like to work in your case frequently.
    - Lots of screws.

    Very nice Evo!

    I finally got back my camera, so here are the photos

    this is the original messy state of my tempest
    [​IMG]

    this is after installing a megahalems and turning the PSU to improve cable management, but without a breathing hole it run a bit too hot
    [​IMG]

    this is the two holes I did for the PSU and an other to improve overall airflow
    [​IMG]

    here you can see the hole for the CPU power NZXT cable, I know it's crap but I don't have the necesary tools to do it better, however it plays its role perfectly...
    [​IMG]

    here's the result of the cable management without the mobo. Paintwork is not perfect, but you wouldn't be seeing that without the flash of my camera
    [​IMG]

    almost done...
    [​IMG]

    done at last!!
    [​IMG]

    this is what you can see from the bottom, I know there are a lot of scraches, but no one gona ever see that (except you lot:roll:)
    [​IMG]

    this is the NZXT CPU power cable, nice isn't it?
    [​IMG]

    and this is my "cave", or that's how my mom calls it....

    thanks, it's not as smooth as some of your builds but that is as much as I can do with my current setup. the idea of the sharingan came to me after painting the side grill black (I didn't like the original silver color) and it turned out to be really nice:)

    Just noticed you are living in Madrid, eres español? Also, where do you buy computer parts from where you live? Going to live in Coruña in a couple years so, would be nice to know where to get things from.
