    I applied some self etching primer to the logo. While it dries...

    I got my new motherboard today

    [​IMG]

    And my processor was added for safe keeping

    [​IMG]

    My power supply had this sticker on top of it, but that's not gonna match

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I remembered about the toy that I got the treads from. It came with these stickers

    [​IMG]

    That looks pretty good

    Bulldozer doesn't deserve such a great mod as a promotion.

    I can't help but ask what to do with this mod when its finished .. if it fits in with your living room furniture then ... Oh My!

    Can you remove the Platimax logo ? and replace it with something better looking or did they sponsor as well :)

    They sponsored me as well. I got the PSU and fans for free. The case will go on display at the store where I work for at least 6 to 8 months. Then I will give away the parts to the guys in my department as I don't need another computer

    I wish displays like this were done in my neck of the woods. Awesome job!

    Here's the OCZ Revo Hybrid

    [​IMG]

    And installed in the PCIe 4X slot

    [​IMG]

    The video card is ready too

    [​IMG]

    I got these nice green cable extensions too

    [​IMG]

    Because that looks way better

    [​IMG]

    Now that the panel is on, I realize that no one will be able to see whatever CPU cooler I'm using.

    [​IMG]

    Oh, and I'm pleased to announce that my new sponsor is::clap::clap:

    Congrats on the new sponsor!

    Green sleeving? Looks strange with your Black / Yellow theme, and also there is like 10 times more heatshrink than needed in there doesn't look very good imho :)

    Yup...the green sleeving is a bit jarring...and the sleeving job is not quite good.

    But other than that, this is a super job with a lot of creativity and something different from all the TJ 07/Corsair 800D mods around....awesome work and looking good all put together.

    Also are the edges of the side panel window area still to be cleaned up. It seems a bit wavy right now.

    I'm using all green cathodes inside for AMD's green logo color scheme. Corsair is sending me some really nice stuff!

    And through a few hours of training at Microsoft's Expert Zone, I was able to order Windows 7 Ultimate for only $15

    are you getting a backplate for that GPU ? i think the blue stands out quite alot and i think a backplate ( black or painted yellow) would look awesome

    but ive never really been a fan of 'gigabyte baby blue' at all
    other than that, you done some amazing work so far

    I will be doing backplates for both of the cards. I'm thinking diamond plate steel...

    The Windows disk is a normal one-use copy, not a resller version
