    I never realised how many wires you had to hide. At least it is looking neat.

    Here's a shot of the interior panels that Moddersmart cut for me:
    [​IMG]

    Getting the wc up and running. Had a couple leaks, on both rad fittings. Wrenched on 'em too hard and
    squished the o-ring out. doh! But I managed to replace them without too much trouble.

    Shot of the left side behind the LCD panel. Distribution blocks for supplying power to the led's and lcd's. What a mess!
    [​IMG]

    And a final teaser shot of the lcd panel up and running complete with DRADIS. :)

    Will get more pics up during the showw. Gotta pack up now!

    :rock: That looks sweet!!! :clap:

    It's very bright & silvery, like a battleship straight from the showroom :hehe: It will look even more awesome once you've finished all the paint. So were people drooling over it or what? Did they freak out when they got close and saw all the detail?

    Well, I made it back from Nvision last night around midnight. I will post pics of all the mods a bit later. It was a real great turnout, with about 15-20 mods competing. I got a third place finish. I was hoping for better, but I can't complain. At least I placed and took home some cash ($500), a new EVGA 790i F T W mobo, and GTX 260 vid card. :D

    I mentioned it a few posts ago, but this was amazing workmanship all the way through. You should have placed higher IMHO. First place was a very clean rig, but surprisingly conservative...

    The only thing that could have redeemed that contest what if you had won imho. Yours is the only one I wouldn't have minded losing to, but whatever, CPU is known for placing questionable mods in their "magazine".
