    Update!!!

    Made some great progress last week and weekend, so time for a nice update.

    Last update was about filling the first loop filled and did some leak testing.

    [​IMG]

    First I continued with the top plates. Mounted these and did some brainstorming about what I can do with it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Like... placing some fan controller (will be faced up) and other then the ones at the picture. If everything goes well it will be the Lamptron CW611 controllers.

    [​IMG]

    Also been busy with the second loop. For this I've made a acrylic plate with some holes in it.

    [​IMG]

    Placed it.

    [​IMG]

    On the other side made the loop complete with Masterkleer 3/8 tubes

    [​IMG]

    And after the filling: The RED Boombox (Also made a movie from filling this side, but still need to edit)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With front cover

    [​IMG]

    When all of this was finished I continued with the PSU, which I still need to find a nice spot for.
    So used a piece of acrylic again, cut it and drilled several holes etc.

    [​IMG]

    Made it black and placed my favorite PSU: The
    Cooler Master Silent Pro Hybrid 1050W

    [​IMG]

    Which will be mounted like this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the mean while did some cable management, like the Sata cables

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And just a simple 24 pins extension

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Mounted the illuminated strip with the GPU power cables again.

    [​IMG]

    After this it was time to place some RGB strips to cheer the place up a bit.
    I especially took RGB because of the cold white light of the fans and the possibility to dim for the right colors in this build

    First some more pictures of the white Cooler Master JetFlo 120 fans

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now in combination with the white illuminated GPU power strip

    [​IMG]

    And at the top, I also placed a white RGB strip so you can see the components better.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For the final I had a madebykier fan grill from my CNC buddy still lying around, but normally I don't place MBK logos in builds.... this build requires an exception I think.

    The MbK logo:

    [​IMG]

    Cut a 120mm hole into the big top plate.

    [​IMG]

    And again placed a RGB strip but this time in the top section.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Looks quite nice I think.

    [​IMG]

    That's it for this update....more to come!!!

    Honestly if I won the damn lottery and I mean the big one. I would start my PC modding shop and the first two people I would hire would be you and Coolermeister here in the UK as the states has Bill. The work you do is so precise and a pleasure to look at (eye candy). Cannot get bored looking at your work and is an inspiration and yes I am sober.

    Amazing job Kier... :jawdrop:
    I hope one day I'll get at least half as good as you.

    Can I ask you for few photos of the front (in your case top panel) of the 935? I just collected all the hardware and finally ordered Haf stacker and will start modding soon:clap: Love the simplicity of yours.
