    Another update for the weekend and after much planning, I now have a rim down the base of the case that lights up!


    [​IMG]
    You can also see that the bolts are holding the case together quite nicely :)


    [​IMG]
    The case is nice and tall but really not that long or wide. It can still fit cards much bigger than the 6990 and has plenty of room for our install.

    I go back to work tomorrow and will post updates as I can!

    As always, thanks to my sponsors EKWB and Razer!

    You're calling it Thermal Tower? I'd've thought something like "Cooling Tank" would've worked better. It's a beast of a case!

    I just called it the Thermal Tower because it looks like a chimney and the heat goes up through it vertically :)


    Thanks, it's fairly cold there atm but it should be a great experience!

    Personal pref but you should probably wait till the carbide production photos come out as it's looking quite good at the moment. I really want to see it in person, see if it's a different animal and the same beast :)

    To whoever doesn't get that last line haha!

    Some progress coming up on Tuesday but I would like to in the meantime thank Asus Republic of Gamers for jumping on board to sponsor this build!

    To celebrate, I will be giving away an Asus ROG Dog Tag that I made so to be in for a chance to win, click here!

    Haha you're in with a chance though, thats all that counts!

    Thanks Wejjy! More to come!

    We have a new sponsors banner :) Happy to include Asus ROG and Fraglabs to the mix :)

    Thanks to:
    Razer
    EKWB
    Fraglabs
    Asus
    Republic of Gamers

    [​IMG]
    EKWB sent a few things in :)

    [​IMG]
    Fraglabs sent this guy in and apparently it's all good for sleeving :)

    [​IMG]
    They also sent this RAM in as well. At 2133mhz it probably isn't the most overclockable RAM but we have a RAM block so we will certainly be trying!

    I got some engraving done and have Wednesday off, plenty of progress on Wednesday is coming up :)

    [​IMG]
    Will be interesting to see how I integrate the ROG parts into the build. The build is of course blue and black so I'll be changing some of the default LEDs in the parts to accommodate.
