    Whoops, sorry Warnoob, haha...

    It will be Red as well. We're aiming to have everything completed for scheduled photo session this friday and then we can post 5th highlight video of our progression on our channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/MonsterMawd

    I've just gone through the build log again, brilliant work guys.

    I picked up on that comment about it looking too manufactured ... If I was having this done for me I'd want the best finish possible, which you have done ...I think that's because you err... are professionals.

    Like this build a lot.

    @SF, out of andrew's budget, best quote we got was $3500 for the blocks

    @ASouter, Thank you, and yes, fit & finish are important to us.

    andrew was fine tuning things last night in the shop, while I was recording Jesse's Phanteks Enthoo Primo build video in the warehouse... I captured this pic from my phone...lol

    I don't quite know what to say. It's great to see so many classy builds as of late, might help increase bit's exposure for a change.

    Anyways, truly astonishing build mate, you've sure as hell got a worthy student.

    Wow finally, been waiting on this for ages now. To be honest though, my feelings are a little bit mixed now that it's finished. I love the theme you guys went for, no criticisms there at all. I'm just not sold on a few of the details. The watercooling loop itself just doesn't quite look right to me, what with all the tubes coming in and out at weird angles and whatnot. The front grill also just seems a little out of place, given it's really heavy duty and square-faced, yet the rest of the case has smooth, flowing lines. It just gives it the look as if it's simply been added on as an afterthought, which is a massive shame as it's easily one of the coolest bits of aluminium I have ever seen.

    The paintjob is flawless though, love all the details, adds so much character to the rig.

    Appreciate the feedback guys - whether positive or not as positive. I certainly learned a lot through this whole project, and can't thank Bill enough for everything he's taught me. Definitely the best "job" I've ever had :D

    I'm working on overclocking and benchmarking and will be posting numbers soon.
