    Welcome to the forum. Just to let you know that I will be deleting your thread once you've had a chance to read this - I cannot PM you until you have more posts on here.

    The reason for me deleting it is that you need to have actual pictures of work in progress for a Build Log thread.

    GK

    I do have alot of pictures of progress, but since I'm doing it through my phone I didn't get a chance to upload them all, if you could give me some time that would be great,

    Very nice :) Just so you know, your first 10 posts might take a while to show up as they have to be moderated :thumb:

    Keep up the good work!

    custom backplate, making the cutout for 3 radiator(240mm ek)
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And here comes the preparation for mounting the GPU's, with extenders. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And í also made the reservoir mount on top of the ssd's (didn't want to put them behind the motherboard tray, makes Cablemanagement easier and cleaner looking)

    and now to the painting (powdercoat) and overhaul,
    first the white paint(even painted the screws
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    And the blue(I think it turned out great) like the colour ombination, same colour as on my car;-)
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    received my sleeves and some led,
    From ICEMODZ.COM
    big thanks for awsome sleeving, and fantastic led work.
    [​IMG]

    now putting installing 3pin adapters for more fan connectors.
    and putting u channel on the fan cutouts(for anticvibration and clean looks)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Reservoir mount will be made out of 3mm thick acrylic, with some led
    behind. and white screws.
    also put led under the psu cover to light up the silver pump covers through the the blue acrylic Window.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And since I will be using extenders, I will not be needing the triple slot ridge, and will tberefore exchange it for a dual slot bridge(save space and cleaner look)
    and also had to make a stability bracket for the GPU's since they are a little bit heavy on the back end. (made out of blue acrylic.

    Polishing the cpu block(EK SUPREMACY with smoked acrylic top)
    before. [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    And after.
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    That's all for now, keep u posted as soon I will continue, waiting on some stuff to arrive.

    Stay tuned.

    Thank you for the updates - looks like you've made some great progress. Looking forward to see where you go from here.

    Just wondering... will you be installing any dust filters on the intake/radiator fans?
