    I had to vote for this one for old time's sake. It was a Boddaker mod - Mystique 2 - that got my modding out of the closet and into the forums.
    Good luck and Thanx for sharing another mod with the world.

    Thanks all! :D

    Thanks John. It's always nice to know my work has inspired others!


    I'm finishing up a cool piece for the video cards, and should have another update for ya tomorrow. It's a cable cover that will route all those unsightly video card power cables down through the motherboard tray and hidden from view. And of course it's trident shaped. :p

    How come I have yet to comment in this build :O

    Good job all the way! The water-bottom-thing is just such an insane idea... It's always a time to celebrate when someone comes up with such an idea :) 3 loops in one case seem crazy enough, but if you can pull it off so neatly, why not?

    Made a piece to cover the ends of the video cards, where all the power cables plug in. I wanted the cables to be hidden,
    so I fashioned a trident-shaped cover that routes the cables down and through the motherboard tray. I'm making
    my own extension cables too, so the actual power cables from the psu will plug into these behind the mobo tray.

    Here is the mess of cables: two 6-pin plugs for each card = 36 wires!
    [​IMG]

    First thing I did was glue them all together with some acrylic and styrene spacers.
    [​IMG]

    Once glued, I can remove them all as one.
    [​IMG]

    After measuring, I cut out the trident shape and side pieces.
    [​IMG]

    Gluing them together, using the ruler as a square:
    [​IMG]

    Testing the cable assembly in the cover..
    [​IMG]

    Test fit on the cards (one of many, many test fits lol)
    [​IMG]

    Another test fit, this time with more side pieces glued onto the cover:
    [​IMG]

    You can see how the cables are being routed to the center of the cover and down.
    [​IMG]

    After the usual sanding-filling-sanding routine, the cover got a coat of white and pearl, like the others.
    [​IMG]

    Here's a close up shot of the hole I made in the motherboard tray, where all the wires will go through. The cover will
    conceal this hole from view.
    [​IMG]

    A wide shot of the video cards with cover. The cables are not plugged in yet. I will need to have the case reassembled
    to finish the wiring on the other side of the mobo tray.
    [​IMG]

    A final close up shot of the cover. I had hopes of permanently gluing the cable assembly into the cover, but plugging
    all six connectors in at once proved very difficult at best, and would be near impossible when concealed by the cover.
    So I will be leaving the cover loose.

    Next up are the three custom bottom plates for the vid cards. :D
