    Guys, I think that it would be a good idea to sleeve all tube in black! Like all other stuff in this build

    Pedestal video, entire HYDRA-case without hardware yet. Hardware will be inside very soon!

    Video of MAX fan's rpm and comfort rpm sounds
    Disclamer: I am not a video blogger, not a streamer! I don't have good mic, and iPhone can't record noise properly! In real life the fans noise is MUCH more quite!!! And in comfort mode (600-1200rpm) the noise is in comfort.
    SORRY FOR RUSSIAN in video. Its for my friends. See the RPM on fan controller!


    THIS IS IT! The HYDRA case with Pedestal. But without from panel. I want to redo some things on it)

    [​IMG]

    And this is case on my huge custom table with my triple monitor (27+43+27 inches) setup (without final cable management of course) - just for understanding of the size (1010mm!!!)
