Any new updates Ant?
Looking at Custom PC mag it seems Anthony is a very busy boy, sadly.
Apologies chaps - Vault-Tec got it in one! This year has been slow progress cos 'people' keep releasing these things called processors and motherboards, and guess who reviews them for a living.... I stopped working at 10:30pm last night - been lots of those recently! Urgh. Anyway, I'm working on a major update here as the project is nearly complete and ready for what must be its fourth final assembly! ha ha!
Loving the Layout photo!
Ant, great to see the X99 Metis lives, and is still in progress. GLWB
It's alive sort of
So many motherboards around him, he has to label them.
You have no idea how true that is.
any Final photos yet, Ant?
Soooooo, I think we might finally be gearing up for a for a final, final, yes finally final build. Unfortunately, my dad has been ill so all my spare time has been spent seeing him or on the phone related to that. My other half is also unwell and I was actually in the back of an ambulance myself a few weeks ago - thankfully I'm okay, but sadly zero free time means zero modding.
However, I did have a few snags including yet another dead DDC pump, a leak as well as need to re-spray the front panel (god damn you spray lacquer) and fix a sagging reservoir. Due to the design, most of these things require a complete strip down and rebuild which takes around 4 hours. I also ditched the Aerocool fan as it just wasn't powerful enough so it's back to Noctua
There's one final thing to do, which is to try out some 2K clear coat in a can, which is meant to provide a harder more scratch resistant finish. So that's my next goal once I've sorted my heated spray rig out. However, as it's hideously expensive and only lasts a day or two once mixed in-can, I'm going to take the first few steps in my next build, which also needs a touch of clear coat, which is why some of you may have seen me fiddling with a Phanteks Shift recently It is my next build, despite the fact this one isn't finished yet, but they had to overlap due to the cost of 2K spray cans.

Been there. Take your time.
