    It's coming along slowly and nicely.
    Can't wait to see them !
    Your work makes me want to buy an Evolv Shift (X or not), just to feel by myself how beautiful and carefully designed this case really is. :D

    Looking great! May I ask what pumps these are? I've seen them in a few cases lately. Thanks!

    ahah..thank you

    Correct, this is a Monsoon D5 pump top + cover.
    I tried to combine the design of this pump cover with the Aquatube reservoir from Aquacomputer.

    Lovely purple color. So "bit-tech" :D
    I wonder if your aluminium covers are brushed then anodised, or just brushed.

    Can we have some full colour pictures please? This is awesome, but there's a kins of blue hue to brushed aluminium that really really makes it pop and it's lost in these pics.

    The cover plates are black anodised , then brushed.
    Black anodised covers were too dark and there would have been no chromatic continuity with the exterior of this case (imho). I wanted more personality in the interiors.

    Awesome! Thanks for sharing your beauty secrets, and good luck for this is month's Case Mofding Update :) By the way, is there still a lot of work to do on this project? It looks rather completed, but I'd be delighted to be wrong.

    I just noticed the nomination...I'm speechless :jawdrop:
    The project is officially completed: it is currently used as office and multimedia pc.

    Thank you
    I'm quite satisfied with the result, even if the pump cable is still visible
    In the next project I will try to hide this cable too :grin::grin:

    The back of the GPU looks really good with the lines, you should of continued that style of the rad/psu.. also would look cool if them veins had purple light showing through.

    Very smart case tho
