    CLOSING THIS PROJECT

    Just wanna let you know that im closing this project. But I will continue to use this computercase in another project.

    A project with the same case, but with other components, such as Orange stuff, water, SLI!

    Hope you enjoyed the build-log. Keep your eyes up for more of my later on projects.​

    Forgott to paint this part, black or white ?

    [​IMG]

    Bitfenix pre-sleeved, real nice.. but package bending sucks..

    [​IMG]

    How it looks today, almost the same, just waiting for my package from my sponsor Be quiet!, new cooler and other stuffs..

    The reason why I need a new cooler is that I can't have plexiglas on the side.. the cooler sticks outside the case, so I need one who's lower..

    Sleeved some extensioncable's for the Be Quiet silent wings 2, you can barely hear them at 60-70%, and they move great amount of air aswell!

    Thanks to Christoph at Be quiet! for all the fans and the cpu-cooler, helped alot

    That's all for me this time..

    Think my project is done for now, maybe see me next time in a new scratch-build! Or other updates on this one.

    Have a pleasant wednesday y'all :)
