    That's a nice list - all great kit, but PLEASE, go with white powdercoat, not blue.

    The whole case outside is been painted white and with the mobo i have on the way the blue should match perfectly. Outside is totally white with baby blue inside with lots of white accent parts. You dont think the blue is going to look nice? I already bought the power :)

    I don't like baby blue ever since my room was painted that color when I was a kid :worried:

    Update 8th June.


    I dont want any black in the whole build if i can help it so the rear of my card is on show and not fitting in with my all white and blue look so something needs to be done. Im going to make a cover out of differnt colored bits of acrylic sandwiched together with my project name and sponsor CNC cut into it which will hopefully glow blue along with a strip all around the edge. I made a load of designs up but settled with this.

    [​IMG]


    As i have a few bits been sent to Tom@ChilledPC next week I got on sorting what i needed cutting for the rear card cover. Now my cards arrived i measured it and transfered that to Photoshop to be able to accurately print it out.


    [​IMG]


    This is how its going to sit on the card.

    As im happy with it I then cut a piece of White acrylic(Has blue protective film on) that it will be cut into.

    Also my mate Oggie sorted me out with a side panel which im not 100% sure i will use but its def different to the normal square or rounded corner cuts so may go with it. Been Genuine lian-li it fits perfectly and is very good quality.

    The card back cover looks sweet, as does the side panel.

    Big fan of Koolance and their kit myself. My own WC kit nothing but their stuff. Gotta love compression fittings. Have an obscene amount of tube splitters lying around from my PhD project...maybe for my next machine they might provide a use.

    Liking the look of the cover for the GFX. Looking forward to the next update.
