    First off what type of creature are you hiding in that case?:worried:

    Nice job so far I'm looking forward to seeing more. I also like the white dinoct on the rad but why didn't you carry it around the whole perimeter of the rad? Or am i just being picky?

    Thanks :) Hope you'll like it...

    @Mechh69 this is just my cat watching me work :)
    I would have ****ed up the stretches where it bends etc :/ And I usually onlu change the color of this part of the radiator if I paint/di-noc it :)

    Well I've been at it for some time and I tried setting it all up like I'm gonna have it when I get the rest of the stuff together. I still have to add a shroud in the top to cover those fans.

    Front rad

    This should give you some idea on how it's gonna be...

    I think it will look pretty good with Mayhems Pastel Ice White running through the block...

    Not 100% happy with the front panel though... :(

    And the right side panel.

    Now I just have to wait for more parts... hope that will be soon :D

    Just received the shroud so I fitted that :)

    Drilling holes for the shroud:

    Shroud fits like a glove :D

    Had to use M4 screws and bolts to get the fan grills to stick...

    Now I just need the mobo and CPU and some Mayhems Pastel Ice White

    Might need a little di-noc as well... These few things may take some time since my financial status changed a bit...

    Bro those 280 shrouds are awesome for this case! I'm doing the same thing for the sake of space and believe it or not, they wrap pretty well with di-noc :)

    I thought about wrapping it in white di-noc but since the front is black I decided to keep the shroud also black :)

    Sure does :) I'm actually using much more black then I intended... I had to remove the di-noc from the handles and feet because I did a TERRIBLE job wrapping it...

    I used a heat gun but I just did something terribly wrong... Corners and stuff like that is not my strongest side when it comes to di-noc :(

    I say slap some white Di-Noc the MNPCTech front panel grill! Would become a nice contrast the the rest of the front panel.

    Looks impressive! That contrast between black and white is better than only one colour! ;)

    @Ra6 Thanks mate :)

    That won't be just yet. The mobo and CPU are so darn expensive and my financial status has changed a bit so It will have to go a bit slower...

    That was my thought :) There are only small things happening now and I'm hoping ASRock can help me out with the motherboard and I'm going for a cheaper CPU so I can finish it in February :)

    I like the Dinoct better on the GPU block than the original circles. The sleeving job looks good, keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing more.
