    Thanks buddy! I will use some tree seeds (yes I am not total crazy!) to cover the screws!
    As soon as I do that you will see the difference. Ii will look like needles but I believe it will be nice. If it isnt I will do what you told me! Thanks for the tip bro! :)

    Countersinking the screws would look much cleaner but I'll wait for your solution. You're the artist, after all.

    Yes I will do that even though my original idea was that. I wanted to give an emphasis to the screws cause its a piece of art but your idea its good too. I will think about it! Thanks! :)

    Thank you my island friend! :) Yes indeed the color was nice but from close it looked kinda pinky so I had to change it to fit with the rest, more trouble for me but at the end I believe it will be nice!

    Thanks man! No I dont live in the Brazilian jungle my friend! LoL I live in Cyprus and it happens in my yard to have a lot of these! :) :D

    One more quick update guys with the work I ve done and the packages I received while I was experiencing the bios problem.

    I will begin with the various thingies I received from my sponsors and some things I ordered!

    Here are the first two packages with the Murder Mod sleeving and the awesome PSU from Nesteq.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is the 850 Watt PSU from Nesteq. Really guys I ve never seen something like it before. Modular cables for a really clean job, a power monitoring panel for checking the voltages and so many other unique options. Really the best PSU a modder and a pc enthusiast can get.
    Here is the site for you to see more info : http://www.nesteq.net/gb/products/powersupplies/e2cs_xstrike/index.html

    And here is what I received from Aquatuning.de !!

    [​IMG]

    Here is the brand new Phobya Radiator with a lot of unique features!!!

    ...more modifications on these rads later on!

    Now lets see the sleeving of the Nesteq's awesome fan controller and how you can do that.

    First of all you need a small screwdriver or something kinda like needle. There are some white clips that you have to slightly raise upwards so you will be able to remove the wires.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    As you can see I didnt sleeved that untill the end of the wire because first of all it wont be visible and second I wanted the flexibility and I didnt want to rush the cables near the clips.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now lets go to the pump sleeving and assembling.
    As you will see I cut the monitoring cable cause I never use it and I used a heatshrink to close it so it wont make contact anywhere.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is the XSPC dual bay and pump reservoir and the process of assembling it with the pumps.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now the 24 pin extension. I didnt want to sleeve the PSU's 24 pin so I used the extension which at the end it will look beautiful too!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now the 8 pin extension!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the cathodes! Watch how you can remove the pins to sleeve them all.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here are all the fans (the transparent ones are going to be painted)

    .....more in a few minutes!!!

    masking !

    [​IMG]

    Then some sanding!

    After almost 2 weeks I watersanded the rads and applied 3 more layers of black gloss paint.

    Looking great. Will you cover them so they won't "ruin" the look of the project?

    Why do you need two pumps, is there going to be an epic amount of tubing, and waterblocks?
    Nice work on the spray painting :thumb:
