On Saturday I received my DDR sticks, 32GB of Corsair Vengeance. The sticks were Black, so I hit local home improvement store and found a great aerosol substitute paint for the Porsche Gulf Racing Blue, it's Harbor Blue enamel paint by Rustoleum. I'm using these to create a DIY video guide to painting DDR heat spreaders, too!

A friend referred me to Ensourced for custom paracord cable sleeving and extension cables. I'm really impressed with the quality and price. I thought I'd go with a color that accents the Stainless Tubing, so I bought these three variations of Grey.... Hmmm



8 pin GPU Paracord individually sleeved cable in "Smoked Grey"



"Charcoal Grey" paracord



"Graphite Grey" paracord

Decided on dual serial for the SLI bridge so I had to cut and bend new SS tubing segments for entering and exiting the GPU blocks. Here is the Koolance SLI Bridge, GTX Backplate and Blocks


The finished build with piping in place shows it connected differently, and wont be as efficient as it flows immediately in one port, then out the adjacent port.

I personally like the "smoked Grey" vs the others. I think it looks more like a metallic product than the others and matches the tubing much better.

Back at the workbench today...finally hahaha, what a crazy month... anywho, I created a PSU shroud for my Cooler Master Mastercase 5 build. It's made from 1/8" thick cast acrylic with embedded magnets I found on ebay, I drilled holes and glued on two legs with weld-on acrylic cement for easy on/off installation. Next step is painting the shroud gulf racing blue and draping over the orange stripe onto the shroud.

EEL Ambiense & Noobas4rus got me really interested in customizing mech keyboards after we did this Keyboard Modding Hangout,


EEL suggested a good mech KB that allowed custom keycaps for my Mastercase Racing 5 gaming PC setup, I've given my Qisan Magicforce "Blue ICE Crystal" 108-Key Mechanical Gaming Keyboard custom keycaps that compliment my GULF RACING Porsche 917 theme.

The Magicforce Mechanical keyboard utilizes GATERON black key switches. It's really nice deal for $69.99, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01HGDKJK4/?tag=tec06d-20



EEL helped me with the layout for the gulf racing theme custom key cap order, $53.75 shipped from from WASD, http://www.wasdkeyboards.com/



Shift key was replaced with STICK SHIFT,
Escape = PIT
Backspace key = PADDOCK
Windows key = GULF OIL logo
Function key is number 5, for Mastercase 5 racing.

@CM Modding

You can chose whatever photos and refer everyone to my worklog in your own forum here, http://community.coolermaster.com/t...astercase-racing-porsche-917-le-mans-tribute/

@smokingman, Thank you, we're almost to the finish line!!! (sigh)

I've decided on the Cougar 700M Mouse. Designed for Cougar by CRE8 Design. I love the aluminum frame and height adjustable palm rest. I'm debating on color theme, maybe Blue with Orange highlights...

I kinda hope that the numpad 5 key would have the number five on it.
