    Cover-up Update!!!

    Another update :) only this time I'm going to hide some things ...

    The reason is too much green. It is much better to add more black now the liquid is in.
    Also I don't like the frosted green parts anymore. That's why I replaced the side strips with clear UV green ... and cutout some shapes.

    [​IMG]

    To hide some green, I have sawn a new plate 1cm smaller than the original

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And copied everything that was in the original

    [​IMG]

    Removed the tape

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    First pasted white and then black vinyl. White is for better light distribution so the edges will glow nicely.

    [​IMG]

    Kept a small distance between the panels.

    Result:

    Same story with the top plate

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also did some things to the front to get more black accents But first sawn a cover UV green.

    [​IMG]

    Which will be placed like this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Made the shape of the black plate like this after some puzzling.

    [​IMG]

    And again pasted it with black and white vinyl.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also a little distance between the plates

    [​IMG]

    Result:

    [​IMG]

    Beginning to become what I had in mind, so no more big changes.

    But ... we're not done yet;)

    Update!!!

    [​IMG]

    My mod of the month nomination (Thank you Bit-tech) is a good reason to do a nice little update I think.
    So here we go.... Just a few more things to do in this build and then the final shoot coming your way

    Behind the middle section I've got some nice space for a Bitspower X-station

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    LED color green :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To hide this and for a little eye catcher I called my CNC friend Pascal...Thanks mate!!!



    Nice result on a rainy day

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once placed.

    [​IMG]

    To get a better effect regarding the UV stuff, I placed some UV LED strips

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Since I have a bit of a trauma from too much sleeving in the past, I have chosen the easy way. Ordering Bitfenix alchemy sleeve from my favorite modding shop Highflow

    A black ATX 24-pin extension

    [​IMG]

    also a 8-pin EPS extention

    [​IMG]

    2x a 6-pin PCI-E extension

    [​IMG]

    and last 2x een 8-pin PCI-E extension

    [​IMG]

    After some pulling, bending and swearing, got some nice curves

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    GPUs where the hardest to get in shape, but it's ok now I think

    Next the final shoot... small preview pic.

    Wow Kier! Awesome!

    Banchetto in Italian has a double meaning: Little worbench and banquet.
    Never more appropriate! With all that shiny hardware on it your mod is a real feast for the eyes...:thumb:
    Fantastico

    Very sad to share with you my friends, but for personal reasons this will be one of the last builds that I make. I still have two special builds which I've started that I will finish.

    But after this.... it's over.

    You have been cranking out top class builds non stop for a few years. This one is brilliant. It will be sad not seeing them on the forums anymore.. But I'm sure the next 2 will be just as good.

    I'm sure after a little rest the modding bug will grab you again
