    Great work so far Davido, I'm modding the same case atm, but my build log still to start. hope to see your final build soon. that front panel with the display is quite tricky and i guess you got it the right way.... i didn't wanna try that and ruin the whole thing ;) . good luck

    Yeah, I was lucky that BitFenix didn't mind sending me 2 of the cases so that I could be a little bit more adventurous .

    Weeeell, I had best post these last few pics of this build (its not the last update, as i do have the peripherals to do still yet!!!!)

    Not much talking in this update, more of just putting all the pictures somewhere, and i will be posting another load of pics in the next few minutes too :p

    What i will say though is if you like this build please do vote for me here:

    http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=282671

    I am currently in the lead, but only by 5 votes!


    So, The PSU i sprayed white and shortened the cables to around 10mm so that i didnt have to worry about the cable management so much!

    [​IMG]

    I also made this little nifty 8pin EPS cable sot hat i didnt have to use the stock cable for the PSU as well as the extension

    [​IMG]

    I also made a backing plate out of some white acrylic that E22 gave to me, i ended up cutting it in half as i didnt like it after id cut out all the motherboard headers, so i just left it covering the PSU and GPU

    [​IMG]

    I cut some holes out of the motherboard try, and made a place for my SSDs as well as filled the loop

    As some of you know, OcUK help me a lot in a multitude of ways, so I offered to put my build on their stand for the weekend at i54 - the UK's biggest gaming festival.

    Well, all the staff really liked it, particularly the big boss man (wooooohoooooo!!!) but these are some pics from teh stand.

    A huge thanks to OcUK for allowing me to be part of your display, it really does mean a lot.

    Before the masses arived.

    It soon started to pull people into the stand.

    [​IMG]

    Lots of people!

    [​IMG]

    8-Pack spent a lot of time with me around this build, he really liked what I had done, which hearing so many good things from the biggest UK components retailer and the worlds number 1 overclocker is huge for me.

    CS:GO was being run on my computer the whole weekend with a BenQ freesync monitor which was awesome. I wish i could have taken it home!!

    [​IMG]

    It was awesome to see the ocuk stand so busy all the time, and to have my build on the "front line" was an honor.

    A huge thanks to my sponsors!

    [​IMG]

    and the final build :)

    I usually sand it down a little bit before i paint it to give it a rough edge, but not so rough it shows through the paint

    Thank you sir!

    Thanks man!! im currently neck and neck with a beautiful build so every vote is needed!!!

    This would work i would i imagine

    I made some extra holes for the 120mm rad, and for the 240 i made a little bracket :)


    As mentioned above, i am in for MOTM this month, there is one day left, im neck and neck with a gorgeous build.... if you like mine, please give me a vote :D

    Beautiful... I'm curious - how did you apply the purple to the tuf armour and the CSQ so accurately and with such little bleed into the white?
