Fluid and Tubing colour.
Who know's what else may appear durring the build.
I have a load of blue and white LED's, MDPC White, Black and Blue Magic sleeving to choose from.
This case will be under going several mods to get everything in, and looking good.
I have this picture in my head of how everything will fit in.
So will be a bit of a test of my space relations aptitude :).
This will be mainly white, not sure if I'll use black or blue as the highlight colour. Or should I use both?
For fuild I have a bottle and a ½ of Ice Dragon Nano fuild but may just use a transparent blue fuild.
Oh ya blue is my favorite colour so don't be surprized to see that colour in the build.
Plus it works with the blue heatsinks on the mainboard.

Stripped this sucker down so we could get a loook under the hood.
So these handles will need tobe removed reworked and remounted. They are in the way of my 360 rad. The small handle at the back will only be removed to allow easy drilling for the rads port holes.

The rats nest that is a sleeving night mare and a cable management horror.

figuring out what to do with that USB3 cable. h'mmmm

First mod has started , placement of the Koolance 360

Hard to see from this angle, but the rad has been offest 20mm closer to the widow side of the case to allow more space between the fans and the mainboard.
