i like the dark blue water lines. they look pretty awesome.
Thank you. I, on the other hand, don't like it coz I think those dark blue lines don't match with
the other blue that I have. U know what I mean right?

I gave you a seven I think there is still more work that could be done.... but I appreciate your build and paint job.

BTW it took me 3 mins and I found your water block for your GTX 460 here it is..... Hurry though they only have a few pieces left! http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/blocks/vga-blocks/fc-geforce/ek-fc460-gtx-nickel.html Yes they do ship to the US.... so don't fret about it being in the UK
:)) any grade is fine for me. Thanks anyway. BTW can u tell me where I need more work?
Yeah,,,I know that I have to run my graphic card on water cooling.....Thank you again for da website. I know that website too but I think this one is better http://www.xoxide.com/koolance-vid-nx460-waterblock.html. Too bad!!! They run out off stock. I've waited for 3 weeks already.

I would like to see some Wholes cut right in front of your PSU and then route the cables behind then Motherboard tray from there.

Next I would use some Colored plexiglas to cover up wholes in between the Hard Drives (Instead of the Tubing you have there. Plexiglas is easy to work with/Cut and bend with a heat gun..... see one of my systems.... I created a false floor with plexiglas a heat gun and a little cutting know how....
or another system of mine.... View attachment 46183

Next yeah I would also mod out that front bezel.... make it something into your own. Sure your paint job is nice.... it's a great start! Just keep going :)

Last yes I know about Xoxide.com although I find their prices really high and they don't keep stock for long. I would suggest looking else where if you want that block asap.

The stuff you are looking for is called U-Channel.... people use it to smooth out the edges of Case cuts or metal cuts. The other thing you might be looking for is Grommets. Either one could work for different situations.

You can find both here.... http://www.mnpctech.com/casemodstore.html

Direct Link...

There are many other places you can find things like that.... other good mod websites are....

Just look around and get creative bro. Your doing a great job and on the right track!!
