    ^^^ thanks!

    yea i get a bit pissy when i see these sponsored monster rigs with gold linings and advertisement everywhere.... to me a computer/rig is simple, something that meets a purpose and looks like a pc. some mods look like theyre made to put in a glass case and stay there, not to get used or touched. not to mention most people cant afford! and a mod should be like making something, like back when you was a kid and put time/effort in to something you done in I.T at school.

    @nleksan im based in the UK and its difficult to source modding stuff you mention, especially when on a tight budget. i spent about £50 on everything, and like you said about tools. i broke 3 pin removal tools. (pulse modding and phobya)

    ive seen the sleeving you mentioned, paracord. if i can find some here, i will use it for my next mod. this stuff tended to melt easy, bunch up (hence the heatshrink on the sata power).

    next i will make my own cables, ive learnt that pulling these apart they break often. and i was going to do make the cables all a single colour, with taping them but wanted something with different shades. hence the black.

    temps are great @stock prime for an hour 39*c max.


    for my first mod, im pretty proud tbh. and TPU and the people here inspired me to do it! thanks!

    d1nkys next mod

    been brainstorming some ideas for my next mod.

    both rigs are up for sale, work will be full time soon and hopefully ill get the cash together to start it in a couple months.

    this time itll be intel as boards have more variety in colours and I want to try it out.

    well the theme says it all, any thoughts on other gold related components?

    Silicon is a cruel mistress. I've used plenty in my time, each and every time except ONCE it failed to hold.

    I've used silicone alot for non computer related things, it generally needs an incredibly clean surface to adhere to. I always clean the surface with acetone first and it sticks beautifully.

    its red durvelle. the camera wasn't too good.

    and mrps3skills, I had the same problem, I had to trim the plastic down until it fitted. its an ever so close fit on the rear chassis part.

    Generally what works for me is roughing the surface with sandpaper, then priming with acetone and putting the silicon on top, for a good stick.
