    What'cha got planned for wire sleeving? Noticed the XSPC pump top, I've got it slated for a project. Would love some feed back from you on it! SU model it, please! If you can find the time. I'm in droolville! :D

    Looking gooooooood.:D I kinda like how it looks with the top panels off too. It has a floating motherboard thing going like that.

    Ohhh a check list:thumb:

    I always say to myself, make a check list! And yet, it normally goes like this:

    -make a check list!

    -naaah ill figure it out as i go

    -but it will be so easier

    -naaah i´m to awsome for that

    6 months later

    I'm thinking black sleeving, blue highlights and black / blue shrink. I should be able to give a bit of feedback on the pump top in the next few weeks when the rest of my WC gear arrives :)

    oo Does this mean I get the cheapskate seal of approval! :hip:

    lol that made me laugh. I have to admit this is the first list I've actually printed off.. I do loads on the computer but then delete them about a day later. Think its something I'll do more often now given how much it sped up the process :D

    Big +rep man! I couldn't find a diagram anywhere. followed it and I now have the switch working like a charm :) using the ring light for HDD activity just for now as I didn't have a 3 pin LED pwr block to hand.

    Latest shots look stunning mate and I'm using you're and mrdbristol's work as a guide on how to use Phenoptix's LEDs! I have a 1m long strip waiting to be installed in Warpcore! Can't wait to see this with some water inside! :D

    Sorry for the late reply guys :eeek:

    Thanks Chanc3 :)

    Thanks Waffle, I'm glad you managed to stick through the whole log :) feel free to use anything you see in the log or improve on it :D I love the thought that I could inspire someone to create something :thumb:

    Thanks Anthony :) the LED tape is fantastic and pretty easy to work with once you remember how to solder lol. Should create some great effects on warp core :)

    You've really helped me out with that check list idea. I have my own of sorts but to have a printed version to keep on track is great even in planning stage. Now updating build files for same! Too many files spread all over hell and back! Thanks! :D

    I know exactly what you mean about masses of files spread everywhere! in the end I just made a folder labelled evolution crap and dragged it all in there lol.

    Thanks Ben :)

    Thank you Fabou :rock:


    I guess I should say that Evolution is still on going but the past few weeks have been insanely busy and I haven't really had much time for logging.
    However there has been some progress and some extra little bits have been modified and added :) If all goes to plan I hope to run a leak test this weekend so there may be an update in the making if I can find the time to sort through the pictures.

    Thanks for staying with me :thumb:

    Well I found the time today to install the loop :D
    I'm using the 3/8 tubing and compression fittings as the 1/2" ones I'm after are going to be out of stock for a while :duh:

    Not a huge selection of pictures to dazzle you all with but its a start :) if all goes to plan then I'll update with some more shots tomorrow,

    Enjoy.

    I'm pretty sure I just got my mind blown:jawdrop:

    This is awesome, if I make anything half as good I'll be stoked.
