Rocking some new rims.




All stripped again.


A pic of how I have the radiator mounted. Using EK Uni holders.


A couple of pics of the first attempt at cable management tie downs.




And just a pic of a fan cable.

More pics of the cable management so far.






All the cable management standoffs mounted.




The power/reset buttons.




Front panel. Seriously dislike these things. All I want is 2 USB3.0. The rest I will never use.

No.

I'm only about 25% done the cabling. Still have all the fan controller/fan, PCIe, 8-pin cables to make. Plus I need to adjust the length of a lot of the 24-pin and 8-pin I already did. A few of the cables are too long.

Then I'll get the shrouds cut. Then test fit it all. Make sure it is 100% ready. Then disassemble. THEN take it to the powder coaters.

I wanted to make sure I did this computer 100% perfect the first time. I don't want any reason to tear it apart 3 months down the read because some shortcut I made started to bother me.
