    Out of interest who made those grills for you as I have looking for something very close to that but don't have the skills to make something of that quality :)

    You know just when i think that the TJ07 mods have all been done another one comes along like this and looks as epic and fresh as when the case first came out and modders took to it. Love the black and orange theme and attention to detail.

    What colour coolant is going in???

    I designed them and Ricardo made them into CAT and laser cut them. He did an ace job. He is an ace guy btw.

    Thank you very much for your kind words.

    I will be using orange coolant. The inside of the case will be mostly black so it will be one of the orange details in there. 99% sure Mayhems coolant. I have contact with Mike, he promissed me he'd get an orange to match it exactly. He is also such an amazing guy. Amazing customer service.

    I (like you) absolutely love that CPU block. The black copper and plexi look so good together.

    Also, while I typically do not care much for black/orange color schemes so far this is looking pretty awesome. Especially the hex orange plexi with black metal rad covers... those are gorgeous. Definitely looking forward to what comes next!

    Also, cute looking kid you have there mate!

    Thank you very much! So far I am extremely happy with how the combination is turning out. I will just try stuff and see if it works well or not. Not putting stuff in there just because I got it. It has to serve its purpose in the colour combination.

    Yeah she is my oldest. She is now 3 months from turning 4. She is a real diva in her acting :D so she sometimes makes daddy go :wallbash:


    -------------------------------------------------------


    Goog news for people that are interested in the Gigabyte goodie bag. Bernice from Gigabyte wanted to up the bag some more so she added a XL polo shirt to the combination. This will be added to the current package which will now consist of:

    A HUGE mousepad, a pen, a towel, a lanyard, a note booklet, a soccesball to hold things like businesscards, a Gigabyte polo shirt size XL and some random material. I will throw in some extra stuff I have in my house like stickers, poster, etc.

    So far the members eligable for the package are:

    1. Saxovtsmike
    2. tp148
    3. The_Crapman
    4. Votick
    5. dreps
    6. Pranja
    7. matiss
    8. goldstar0011
    9. xTatic
    10. kelvinb
    11. Ripitup121
    12. sixfootsideburns

    So we're about halfway :) Another 13 posters will be added to the drawing (after they replied to this thread).

    btw the shirt they added looks like this:

    It might be expensive, but it's just soooo pretty :D would be great with a full board waterblock on it :jawdrop:
    Really enjoying the build and looking forward to your next update!

    Thanks for your comment :thumb:

    Well there is a fullcover waterblock for it. But it will take away some of the orange accents I really like. And from other users I have heard there is no need for a waterblock. So for now I will do with the very pretty stock heatsinks. Perhaps one day I will go and add the XSPC waterblock.

    I have never used one of these before and I have always been interested in them. I mean they're not very cheap and some people claim them not to work at all. Yet all the pro players have them or even endorse them. I got in contact with one of the marketing employees of Gunnar and explained him about this project. He was very positive and offered me one of their glasses for the project (and added a shirt to give away to a viewer of one of my buildlogs). I can give them a try and see how they work for me. I have to say they already have a big + in the looks department. I think they look very stylish. Since this hardware will be powerfull enough to do some serious gaming I will use the glasses when trying to do some benching and when playing a hardware eating game to see how it performs :rock:
    And of course with general computerwork. I have a job that requires a lot of screen time and I game as a hobby so their glasses should be very worthwhile for me.

    If that wasn't the motherboard you planning to go with your black/orange build, which one were you going for? Seems the perfect accompaniment for the other hardware! Loving the grills too. Can't wait to see it finished!
