Well, a quick update, been doing some paint touch ups as well as a few other little things to make this ready to build.
I have a few new parts coming my way, but I wont ruin the surprise. It looks like I might end up modding my H50, or going with a full WC loop, haven't completely decided yet.

Quick update.
I might be getting some new sleeve, but I'm going to wait a bit on that. As of right now the PSU color scheme is going to remain much the same as before. Black, Grey...... this time, due to popular demand sans bleu lol.
This is a shot from my past K62 build, the PSU will be coming over from that, thanks to Nils and his fantastic sleeve choices, they may still work.

What do you guys think?
should i keep the gray or go with some white or another color choice?

So while I'm waiting on the last of my motherboard tray parts to dry.... i decided to take the stacker outside, to get a little bit of sun to catch you guys up on some of the work that has been done.
The majority are just shots of the paint, and what it looks like thus so far.... and I kinda gave away a part of the motherboard tray design/patch up lol.
Oh well,

As you can see, the front panel connectors have been sleeved. Was a bit difficult, because of the size of the cables themselves, I had to use the sata sleeve and shrink and attempt to make it as tight as possible.
I think the end result looks alright, but only a test fit on the mobo will really tell the true story.

Here's a few more shots, this time with the focus on the back IO Panel and the 120mm fan cut out.

Finally, i have my helper watching me take these, just relaxing in the shade after a good brushing
Shes about 9 years old, Siberian Huskey-Wolf mix, bought from a breeder in Quebec who said her father was a tamed wolf, but according to our vet here in southwestern ontario, shes around 75-80% wolf.
Was a bitch to handle when she was young, but an amazing dog none the less.

The grey sleeving looks very nice and I think it would definitly look good in your build :thumb: that case is coming along very nice.

Very snazzy, mattlef. I think black/white suits the stacker much better than the black/green paintjob on the nVidia edition SKUs. I can't wait to see the it full of computery goodness :thumb:

here's a quick and dirty update.
I've finished my drive mounting solution.

Started off like this:

Sorry, for the shitty pics.
I'm going to mount it with the plexi facing the motherboard, for reasons that will come later.
I'm not quite sure if i should mount the fan pulling the air down with the cables coming out the top, or if i should do it with the fan pulling are up, with cables out of the bottom...
What do you guys think?

mattlef May 28, 2010 07:18 PM

I'm just getting you guys ready....
i have a pretty big update tomorrow. I'm currently just going through the pics, doing whatever updating is needed and formatting...

its gonna be a big one.

Here's a quick one. Sorry for the blurry pics... I promise It'll be better :P

I've gone from this:
