    Damn, that cabling it going to be amazing. I don't think I've seen anything this clean. Tbh, I see this as becoming on one the coolest PCs out there. All the stuff you're putting into it is pushing the envelope every time. I'd love to see stuff like this in everyday PCs. Or even a guide so people could replicate it.


    By the way, that liquid cooling looks insanely nice. I can't wait to get mine :(

    joke is, if he kills his board, Asus would more than likely turn around and give him a new one, just think of the advertising this mod is giving them!

    This mod, is almost 100% custom, with custom water blocks and cable, copper plates being made oversea's, aswell as carbon fibre panels, none of that vinyl crap! lol!

    I am going to go with a hunch here langer, your single right? Because no way would my other half let me blow $10K on a computer build, not to forget the crazy muscle car aswell! All during a massive economic turn down!

    Awesome stuff going on here. :D

    There wouldn't be a chance for the poor of us to buy some of the cable sleeving you've bought from you, right? :lol::lol::p

    With the amount being spent on this case i doubt he needs to worry about the cost of losing the warranty on parts.

    @talladega - "Warranties? Where we're going we don't need Warranties!"

    @craigbru - That's the spirit mate!

    @clownfart - Thank you very much, that's very kind of you to say so. Funny you should mention that - because I have plans to release a few limited edition cases for sale in <1-year.

    @Burnout21 - If all else fails... beg. Well, I'm not married if that's when you're implying... but I'm still only 21 - I'll consider marriage when I'm done having fun thankyouverymuch. =)

    @Aterius Gmork - Thanks man. For sure I'd be willing to part with some of the sleeving - after all minimum order lengths for some of it was 225'.

    @bradders2125 - Actually I'm just about broke - I've been taking on conteacts left right and center the past few months just to offset the costs of this project. I'm barely breaking even... but I'm having so much fun.

    I paid for everything except for some of the watercooling parts. Corsair did give me 'naked RAM' and a PSU - but I had already purchased the same RAM with heatsinks, and a Silverstone 1.2kW PSU, so that offsets that. The carbon fiber is a freebie too.

    When I said 10K, I wasn't factoring in freebies. =(

    Thanks man.

    Nicely done there. I had to look at that for a while to figure out the ramsinks weren't part of the reflection.
    ...Maybe I should go to bed.

    You just made me realize that I need some RAM cooling for the back of my GTX 260s.

    Edit: Apparently the D-tek uni-sink works with the stock back plate.

    Seriously? I've been looking into a glass panel for my next mod. It's still several months off, but you've saved me a little time. I've been researching custom glass panels, and there's not a lot of information out there. I'll definitely give you a PM when the time gets closer. :thumb:

    Glass with squares cut in it 1/8" from the edge would be tricky...
    -You better polish those edges!:nono:
