    you're welcome :)

    ==============================================
    Update time!

    Making sleeved extensions
    Here is everything you need. My friend works in PC service and he was kind enough to give me some spare PSU cables (6-pin GPU power to 4-pin molex), this fact makes my work a bit easier :p:

    oh, and crimping tool + pins of course

    crimped wires

    this is how I hold strong sleeving tension :D left end is just shrinked
    [​IMG]

    Aaand here you go, finished!

    Next to the front door assembly
    Got some round stickers for the fans. One sheet with BC logo on them and another just plain black. Sounds ridiculous to order black pieces of paper from another part of the world, isn't it? :D
    Sorry for apple advertising, it was just the thing laying nearby to show gloss, stickers are of very high quality.

    Take a look at this YL fan, I've melted stock sticker while sleeving :(

    Not a problem anymore!

    Other 2 got plain black

    Then the door, everything is pretty evident
    [​IMG]

    used Nanoxia silicone pins

    Basically I have everything I need (sincerely hope) except for the MIPS block. Also one thing is in production now, window is in a stage of designing.

    That's it for now, thanks for checking in ;)

    Perfect sleeving! I have to steal the idea with paper clamps to hold the sleeving :D

    This build looks sick, good parts, good color scheme, and good work. I'll be following this one!

    Sleeving is top notch. I love how the heatshrink just lines up perfectly.

    Thanks a lot :thumb:
    yep, it takes some time :D

    ================================================
    I have decided to change my hardware a little, but nothing depends on me now, all I am gonna do is wait.

    High time to finish the sleeving I've decided to put the sleeving into the PSU and remake some parts, it is still in progress but I have a picture for you (I am on the laptop with crappy display this days so don't be mad at me for imperfect white balance or brightness)
