    I got a new toy...a macro lens. I couldnt help have a play with it and setting up the Phobya RGB light kit...in true Phobya fashion the kit then packed up after about 15 mins of use..and a connector was missing so i could only use 1 of the 2 RGB strips in the top....

    Still a long way to go yet,PARVUM are at work on the res,got to get a card yet,seen a nice 780 Classy going cheap so that and an.......EK.......block will probably feature now.

    Lutro Customs are supplying the braid,terminals,plugs and tools,the BeQuiet PSU will look very nice I think,I hate sleeving but its got to be done. :thumb:

    I really should gets parts all together at the beginning but i like to take my time and scout for the bargains...:duh:

    Haha always the hate for the sleeving work :D
    It is a lot of work but when done right it is the cherry on top of the project.
    It can make or break a mod imho.

    Good luck :thumbsup:

    Thanks Asouter,it needed something otherwise it was just going to be a bland box.
    Got a white pearl to shoot over the logo but the lines are staying white,then I have to run a 2mm black line around the lines and logo to sharpen it up.

    Also debating ditching the IO panel and having flat plate,use the Aquaero for the on/off function instead of the capacitance switches.

    I used the Ice white (with blue pearl)... and it's a very subtle effect, almost to the point where it's barley noticeable. If you're looking for a bit more pop I'd suggest a silver flake over the white. It should blend in with the white without being too OTT.

    You'll see what I mean when you use the pearl :)

    [EDIT] Cheeps is spot on with the finger marks on the on/off button

    Yeah,the moment i did the buttons, i knew it wasnt going to look good...sometimes you need to try this stuff first tho.

    I want a subtle effect,just so it pops at the right angle rather than a heavily reflective look. Im not sure if flake will run thru my airbrushes anyway,what nozzle size does it need?

    Thanks! RAM has been ordered up and......

    I would like to thank Mike @ Lutro0 Customs for the PSU kit for the custom harness for this build,im seriously impressed with the quality! I wish i had thought to get a new PCI tool,if it matches the rest of his stuff then it should be a winner!!

    All glued construction and just a cut out job from 10mm acrylic,much simpler and goes a lot better with the rig.
