well I hope you guys like more product photo's for awhile.The mobo is dead and I Just finished running thru the 1500 meter RMA hurdles with Asrock to get Rma going.
So will take a month I imagine to get the mobo back

When the modding of the cases is done I will decide on whether to powdercoat or not
Have a place close by me that can do it
My idea at this point was to line the inside of case with black plexi for weird reflection possibilities"Apparition"
so if I go with that idea powdercoating is over the top and will do that on my test bench project

If I scrap the inside wall plexi idea I will powdercoat it Gloss black

It really all depends on how the plastic doors turn out if i can make them look good
If i wind up making metal scratch doors they will be powdercoated,cant powdercoat plastic
and the fronts of the 2 cases are plastic
OH and I do have a airbrush gun which will appear soon in the log

I got a few somewhat off topics questions for you fuzzy. I am kinda new to modding, I have done some small things like dismantling my haf922 to paint the inside and adding extra leds to its switch, but my modding experience ends there. I am also trying to come up with ideas for my next build, even though it is years away, that I want to be pretty grand.

For your cable sleeving do you use just the cables that everything is coming with and just adding the mdpc sleeving, or are you ording wire and making custom length wires? If it is the later where are you getting the pins and connectors?

Thanks in advance for the help man.

Haf 922....nice case have 2 of them in my office I painted as well

For this build the PC Power and Cooling PSU is quite the Medusa of cables and not modular at all and have to be shortened quite a bit
they will be cut short and new pins added
Some cables will be made from scratch,fan cables to FC10, some molex for the lighting
I have some pins and connectors from MDPC and some I got from Dazmode and maybe I got a few from moddiy
hard to remember been sitting on them for awhile

Oh alright cool, something I was just curious on since I haven't really done it before. Just curious once again, is MDPC sleeving made for a certain gauge wire or is it a one size fits all type deal?

Mdpc sleeving comes in 2 sizes in most of the colors ...wire and sata size
There is a jumbo size but believe can only get it in black that works over USB cables without unhooking them
Someone please correct me if I am wrong ,I would love some jumbo shade 19

While the board is away for its RMA Holiday

I did get a few Goodies

I like the UV orange tubing



12 inch orange led strip



Put some UV light to the orange sleeve



Couple temp sensors will blend in nicely
