    Invitational Badge:
    I fealt it was only proper to make a Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational badge for the cable management setup on the Replicant mod. I designed it from the ground up since I've been having some software issues. Took a lot more time but I like the way it came out so it's well worth it.

    Front Acrylic:
    Originally I didn't plan on making custom front pieces. I did however make a few acrylic pieces that make up the front but didn't originally design pieces to go around the front fans. Once I started disassembling and reassembling the front I decided that I really needed to make something to go around the fans even though they really wouldn't be seen much. I spent hours designing and redesigning a new front fan shroud. After many redesigns I came up with a great 1.

    Leak Testing: (video)
    I always go through a basic check list before leak testing. Making sure all the adaptors, tubes and fittings are tight is important to eliminate the potential for small leaks. The most common leak I come across is from not tightening an adapter or fitting all the way. Usually if I have time I'll fill the entire loop with coolant or distilled water without powering up the pump. Most of the time this isn't doable because most loops require you to power up the pump to fill the 2nd half of the loop. I design my loops so it usually isn't requured. This allows me to let the loop sit overnight before powering up the pump. It's not a required measure but make easier for me.

    Final Assembly:
    It's my favorite time of any case mod; final assembly! I'm doing some of the final stuff in a bit different order than usual. I'm waiting to put on the two side shrouds until after leak testing so I can see all the watercooling fittings and connections. I was a letter to snag a few pics during the process. I still need to play with the dye a little to get the exact shades I want.

    All Booted Up!
    The moment of truth........when you flip the full power switch for the 1st time. It took me an hour just to flip the switch for the 1st time. It's that moment when it'll all be good or really bad. Fortunately it all went well.

    Installing Windows 10 was a breeze on the Plextor M9Pe PCIE SSD. It was definitely one of the fastest installs I've done. After that it's time to install all the Asus utilities and drivers for the X470 Maximus Crosshair VII wifi + STRIX GTX 1070 gpu. Next up was installing the software for Thermaltakes new RGB software (V2.2). It took a bit to figure out at 1st but I got the hang of it after swapping around a couple things.

    It Comes to an End:

    I can't thank you all enough who have supported the "Replicant" case mod. I'm amazed at the amount of support and positivity that has been shared with me. This competition was quite the journey and seeing Replicant finished; I know the extremely long hours were worth it.

    I manged to push myself further than i ever have before while assuring that every piece is clean looking and achieved at my high standards. I pulled off my goal to touch every single piece and mod it in one way or another. Everything was done in house and with my own hands; the end result is something I'm extremely happy with. Thanks again and make sure to place your vote!

    ••Make SURE to VOTE for the Replicant CaseMOD Invitational build••
