    Im glad you like it! I agree with you, sometimes the small details do the work! :D

    I dont think Sweden is known for their steep mountains, we have more older and rounder mountains lol :D

    Thanks! :thumb:

    Thanks alot :)

    Thank you :clap:


    First time doing copper tubing!

    It was harder than I imagined, not doing to actual bend but to do multiple bends on one pipe. Well this is my first try! Going to try straighten up them a bit when I got time.

    Have to wait for more fittings now, so I can continue again with more tubing.

    I prefer having soft bends instead of fittings, I like it more like this.

    Those pipes are indeed epic, especially for a first time bender! You nailed it Zoyadog, great job! Now tell us honestly how much tubing you wasted before the bends started coming out that nice. :)

    Fantastic job, I really like.

    Frida composition is one of the most interesting visual experience, it's fantastic that we can associate with your ideas!

    Hi everyone! :waah:

    Ive been struggling the last few weeks with the PSU... :sigh: it has been awful. The PSU is originally semi-modular. But when I got it (won it in a competition) the modular cables were missing... So instead of buying extra cables or a new PSU, I got the BRILLIANT idea of making the PSU fully non-modular... "Seems fine to me!"... until I saw the cables lol. :duh:

    Every cable is coming from a splitter, one big cable splitting into 3 or 4 cables. Which makes it hard to do custom cables. :confused:
    But after some blood & tears I finally did it! :lol:

    I have also shortened all the cables. :yawn:

    Added the hexagons from the laser cutting to cover the modular holes.

    Here is what the fan placement looks like. Im really glad that Im able to hide the fans, I dont like the look of fan-borders everywhere. :eek:

    Sleeving on its place now! Going to tidy it up some more, but Im still waiting for the second GPU to move in before I can to that. :D

    Love it, ALL of it! Love the colors, the tube run, the insanely OCD PSU sleeving (you MUST be crazy). :) It's quite literally ALL GOOD! So is that case. Almost makes me want to abandon my over-sized Case Labs cube for something prettier!

    *bows* Thank you for the beautiful words :clap: Im so happy you like it!

    Its a great case! Next mod will probably be ATX again. I cant decide which the better form factor is :geek:


    Thanks alot :blush:

    Matx is probably the most effective form factor imo, but i also love mitx and matx builds.
    thanks :D

    It was really interesting doing pipes, its the first time im doing hard tubing. Im glad you like it :cooldude:



    Almost the last update

    Odyssey is finished, the last thing to do is the photoshoot. Will do that this weekend!
    Meanwhile im going to update with some spare photos, and photos from the Dustin Expo.

    Sleeved start button.

    Intel SSD's 520 and 730. Will probably exchange the 520's to 730 in a moment.

    Sawed-off SLI bridge!

    [​IMG]
