A few more WIP pics












Holy sausage fingers batman


These fans have a hard reflective sticker. Rather impressed, except they aren't black.




My new radiators fans. Supposedly these Phanteks are top dog for quieter high pressure 140mm fans.


Monsoon silver bullets, came with a reservoir I bought. Pretty nifty but I won't be using them.


Sheet of aluminum w/ plastic wrapping in place.


Weird angle shot of the backside of the mainboard tray.


Have the SSD and fan controller mounted in place. This is just a temporary SSD so I can get the cables made. I have a 480GB Mushkin Chronos Deluxe on the way.

Really need to get this thing finished. It sucks not having a computer. I am doing all my updates via my HTPC and tablet. Getting close though.

The last days I have worked on the cabling again.





Just need to crimp on some new crimps.





Purolator lady was nice to me this week.







Also got a new SSD. Mushkin Chronos Deluxe 480GB. Immediately took off the label. Love the brushed black aluminum look to it.





Yesterday morning I 'finished' the PSU wiring. That is a first for this build.





Then I started working on aluminum. Cut a new false floor and a frontside 5.25" drive bay cover. Still need to mount them properly.

The Realforce keyboards are a mechanical / membrane / capacitive hybrid. Extremely well built. Wish I had grabbed the black one but unfortunately they were back ordered and I didn't want to wait.

Nibbled a new 5.25" side cover. This one is a bit larger to fit the radiator a bit better. Also mounted the false floor properly.







Then I mounted the front radiator.






A few pics w/ the hardware reinstalled.











The last few days I have been attempting to use the Monsoon mandrels. It hasn't been going so good. I went through 8 feet doing this single run and it still isn't right. It is 2-3 degrees off.

Thanks.



Spend all day yesterday doing the loop. The 3-4 days previous do that I spend on practicing. These mandrels are a nightmare to master IMHO. I still don't have it. I unfortunately ran out of tubing.

I totally agree with you! I think I had less difficulty without the Monsoon Mandrels.

One of these days I'm going to have to pick myself up a set of nibblers. I keep seeing them mentioned, and folks seem to be getting good results with them, but I've never seen a pair let alone tried one out.
