    Hey guys!

    Here is the case back from powder coating. I'm not perfectly happy with the results as it did have some reactions in some spots however that is at the bottom which will be covered by the PSU and shroud.

    Check it out as I start to install the components inside!

    Tubing is also done, just missing some fittings for now to be able to plug everything is to show you. Had to swap them around to do the bends :)

    The back window came out pretty nice :D

    Reservoir mounts on the radiator

    Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Hey guys!

    Back with another update as the build is getting closer to completion!

    The shroud is now installed and of course you can see more vinyl work being done!

    Some snake skin going over the shroud that I thought would look really cool. It didn't come out perfect due to my transfer paper not being very good at the time but I'm pretty happy with it.

    Underneath the shroud at the back there will be an LED strip so this will light up between the vinyl quite nicely.

    I've also done the front panel vinyl but this again due to the transfer paper finishing and I believe that it wasn't really that good towards the end, I messed up towards the bottom where the MSI logo is and this had to be pulled off to be redone but in the end ran out of transfer paper and vinyl so ordered some more to do the rest!

    Check out the results guys!

    I've also re adjusted the tube here and instead of redoing it completely I've decided a little curve like that makes it match more in line with the snake theme of the build.

    You can imagine that once the front panel is completed it will look so much better once on and lit up. It should light the snake head really nicely!

    Thanks for checking it out guys and stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    A few more details to be added to the outside of the case with vinyl and just waiting on cables to arrive!

    Also I need to stick the window acrylic on the side panel

    Check it out with the side panels on :)

    These LED strips are awesome and Icemodz can do them in any length both the LED and cable.

    Nearly forgot about the acrylic windows, if you didn't notice, it wasn't on in the last update!

    Before sticking it on I decided to do some engraving of the MSI Krait head.

    It was a really quick job that turned out pretty good and it will give the build that extra bit of detail!

    It must have taken me about 30mins to do all up and I think anyone can have a go at this if they have a dremel and want to add some extra details to their case.

    Just print your design, stick it to the acrylic and trace it with the dremel. You can buy the engraving kit and use the bits as you see fit.

    Check it out guys!

    I really like it, very clean build. Not a great lover of the coolant colour though, looks like a shade of weak green

    That's the theme for the mod :)

    Thanks mate! Also must be the light, coolant is white. Would not go into this much detail on a black and white build to put green coolant in it ;)
