    Finally getting started on my Hex Gear R40 build.
    I'm going with a red and black theme, witch will show by the compunents that I have chosen.

    Specs:

    Case: Hex Gear R40 (With frosted red accent pack)
    Motherboard: MSi Z97m Gaming
    CPU: Intel i7 - 4770K
    Ram: 16Gb G.Skill TridentX 2400MHz
    GPU: 2x GTX780Ti
    Storage OS: 250Gb Samsung 840 EVO
    Storage: 1Tb Samsung 840 EVO
    PSU: Antec HCP-1000W

    The watercooling will from EK and fittings from Bitspower. Put together witg PETG tubing from Nanoxia.
    All the tubing will be done with at frosted finish to match the accents on the case.

    The cables in this build will all be custom sleeved with Teleios sleeve from E22.

    The four aluminium profiles, that form the corners of the case will be anodized black.

    The R40 is a thing of beauty - I'm looking into the PETG tubes & Coolforce fittings for my own build at the moment so it would be good to see how they turn out in yours :)

    Just did some painting before leaving for holiday with the family.
    Have not decided if the color is acceptable, I'll find out when I get to the assembly stage.

    Hi Jeffinslaw, the color is called "purple red"
    It's a very nice color, I just can't decide if it's to dark for this build :)

    Absolutely love the screws on the graphic cards, and the anodized profiles are also insane!

    You can lift the colour to a brighter shade by using a white undercoat.
