    The rig came out excellent.:D Lovely work all around.

    @Nut- I still post the same amount I always did, and the content of my posts are as bad as they ever were. The amount of logs to sift through has skyrocketed.

    Yeah, I think so. I also been inactive for couple of months. Now I'm back though, with even more work the before. But now currenlty with a simple casemod.

    To be honest the PSU and gpu is the worst with this build. I don't really like the color of the sleeve. The sleeve is great but the colorscheme could be better choosed. I did'nt think that one through enough.

    So, I will change that in the future. I will get a new PSU, a more power efficient one. Maybe some SFX-L psu's or something.

    The be quiet SFX power 2 400w works great, not that. But I get so limited with the overclockning. Not sure that it is 100% stable. Hard to tell.

    So.. the sleeving in the future will be different, and i will consider shorten those pci-e cable's, thanks for the advice!

    Thank you!

    First package!

    Hello again!

    Some parts arrived. Next package I'll recieve contains fittings. "Barrow-fittings" Anyone here used them ? I have seen them before, so why not try them out aswell.

    Well.. Nothing really special about this update, just wanted to show what I got and what I planing to get.

    Primochill 16/10 clear
    Primochill CTR phase II D5 enabled (plexi) 80mm res
    Primochill CTR compression ring
    EKWB D5 PWM pump

    Looks real nice when I assembled it. 160mm in height ( coca-cola 25ml for reference )

    I also got a new LED-list.. The RGB list didn't have the right "whiteness" to it. So I had to switch that one out.

    So, what I to get next is an EK plexi clear block and a block for my GPU. Not sure if plexi or acetal. But.. That's the last piece I will buy. And mayhems pastel black!

    Maybe a new PSU aswell. As I can't run my PC overclocked with this PSU unfortunately.. So I had my eyes on the silverstone SFX-L psu for a while.

    Novo mini IS NOW FINISHED!!

    It sure took a while.. But.. Now I am completely finished.

    This build hasn't only been a ordinary build for me. This build has made a huge difference in my life. Also made me gain experiance. Experience about the modding community.

    I did compete in Dreamhacks modding competition, did not finish at the podium. But that wasnt my intention either. Now I gathered something more important. Friends in the modding community. I have shown myself. Who I am and what I love to do.

    I will for sure continue modding. I have been going back and forth with the thought If I should quit modding or not.

    But the community has shown me the opposite. I love what I do. So why quit

    Best. / Alex
