    Update 9

    [​IMG]

    The package from Aquatuning finaly arrived. They sponsored me with 1x Cougar Vortex V12S, but in addition they also sent me an another fan, witch is a Phobya Nano-2G 12 PWM Silent 1500rpm Red LED Double Blade and told me that I had to write a review of it. So i will write a review of it, and post the link to it here.

    But enough text, here is some pictures of the fans I got from aquatuning:

    And it looks like the Phobya fan has some candy with it :D

    Update 10

    Yesterday I painted the front and the top. The temperature was not good at all, but I painted it anyway, since I want to have the paintwork done before The Gathering. So I might sand it down and repaint the case later. I did also mount the cougar fan Aquatuning sponsored me with on my cpu cooler. I hope that the the new GPU cooler is coming tomorrow. It is the same as the one I got now, but the one i got now has a broken fan. I did paint the cover on the gpu cooler too.

    Enough text, some pictures here! :)

    No good temperature...

    The gpu cooler? I just took the fan of the new one and mounted it on the old. The problem is, that it broke under the gathering. So I need to buy two more

    Update 12
    [​IMG]

    The secound package from Phenoptix arrived yesterday! :D
    The content was 30 3mm Orange DIP LEDs, 12 3mm Orange prewired LEDs and 15 0603 SMD LEDs!
    I guess they sendt me 3mm leds that is not prewired since the prewired is out of stock. I asked for prewired, but no problems with that, since i have changed my LED idea, so i dont need to remove the resistors now

    Thank you for sponsoring me with these leds! :D

    Here are some pictures of the leds:

    Testing the DIP leds:

    The SMD leds is damn small! I could not test and take picture at the same time. Here it is beside a 3mm led:

    Thanks a lot Phenoptix! :)

    I really like that colour too, I've been doing some green, it shouldn't work but it most definitely does. The future is Orange...

    Update 13

    In this update I will post pictures of the stuff I did get for free and won in competitions at The Gathering. I will also post some pictures of the LEDs when I'm testing them where they will be.

    First, the stuff I won in competitions:
    Some of the stuff..
    [​IMG]

    The logitech G9x:

    The Razer Orca:

    The two gpu's i won, XFX radeon HD 6670:

    The Logitech Gamepad F310:

    [​IMG]


    And the stuff I got for free with no competition at all:

    7 mousepads:
    [​IMG]

    Some CAT5e cables:
    [​IMG]

    Razer cup:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And this one is hard to belive that I actually got for free with no competition at all!
    [​IMG]

    Yes, I did get an Corsair AX 1200W FOR FREE!! :D


    I tested out some LEDs in the side on the acrylic sheet:
    [​IMG]

    I can tell you one thing, SMD leds is a hell to solder on a fan controller! I think I used about 20 minutes to get one SMD LED on the fan controller. I used the pins on a 3mm led to hold the smd led on its place and soldered at the same time. Damn hard..Anyways, here is the result:
    [​IMG]

    And thats all for now guys, stay tuned for more. :)


    Thanks to all sponsors!
