    It feels so good, when we see our work getting even more congratulated from brands and modders, and that's i am really proud of my work!

    I would like to introduce my biggest sponsor for this project, with the help of Darren McPhee and Sasa Marinkovic (Sr. Product Marketing Manager, Graphics from AMD)

    Together, they provide the fantastic upgrade in GPU for this project!

    STAY TUNNED!!

    I will try to paint in the same colour now, first the primary, then the same as the case.

    Here we get a few pics of the midplate "mounted", but still miss some cuts for the WC.

    Wich one, 1 or 2??

    I m8 choose the 2, but with push and pull in the 240 radiator, adding 2 more fans, the 7 and 8, because its for CPU.

    So 4 in 480 and 4 in 240.

    Is your plan to put both of these rads in the bottom PSU area? I can say from my experience that I could not fit fans on the right right of my rad by the PSU because there was not enough room. I really doubt you would be able to put both rad under there, even if you only had fans on one side.

    I entered them now, and it fix... with the 12 fans the problem are the tubing, but with only one side of fans, there is no problem.

    Hi,

    My repainted front painel just arrived... i think this is the best we can do. It was painted 2 times, and i think it from the case was black, so it makes a "dark white" in the case... what doesnt happens in the acrylic.
