Sweet! Looks like you and the family had a great time! System is looking good. Can't wait to be able to upgrade and try my hand at sleeving.

Sleeving can be a bit tricky to start, but its well worth it :)

Hey guys,

I teased the update a bit earlier on Instagram,
So here is the preview of what i want to to do




I'll do a more comprehensive writeup with regards to materials, the planning process and everything.
Basically the "yellow highlighted areas" are going to be custom light plates that hold the SSD's and HDD's
Its going to be very similar to what you've seen in other amazing builds, but I'll be adding my personal twist to it.

Hey guys,

This is more of a production type of update, while updating some stuff i want to do with the loop.

I received a package from some awesome people over at Cowboy Studio


They are amazing, great studio lights, 5500k illumination so its practically daylight!


So lets see how things look with better lighting!

this is something i want to change. Sure the lighting looks great, but i think I'm going to end up rotating the block so that the inlet is at the top, and the outlet is at the bottom. Might make this look a lot cleaner


I'm so in love with this sleeve. MDPC-X is amazing stuff. I need to buy more i've already run out.




However, these images also revealed that i need to fix the run from the GPU block, to the res. This doesn't look good and it looks likes its kinking a bit. A little too much there.



As well,
I was a FanExpo yesterday, I shot some great footage with some amazing cosplayers.
I had the chance to speak with some of the Xbox people, unfortunately Ubisoft and Playstation PR guys were pretty wrapped up with conventional media time, so they couldn't fit me in.

However, this is where even more bad news comes in.
Yet, here is some back story just to show you how bad the day was.

Started off the day with a major delay with the subway with a Toronto fire department investigation. Some idiot at the station pulled the fire alarm.
Next, arriving at FanExpo an hour late, Teletoon had lost my weekend passes and my press pass. We waited an hour for the weekend pass to be fixed, but i couldn't get my press certification back.
So, pushing that emotional let down aside, I attempted to do the best i could with the interviews i could muster.

After conducting all my interviews, I play back some of the audio. Sounded great, then all the sudden my data is gone. I plug the microSD card in my phone, and it wont read. i try my card reader at home, nothing.
All my externally recorded audio is gone. The MicroSD card is dead....

I want to break something. But, thinking positive, I'm Motivated to make sure i get this done, so that i dont let down those who were kind enough to support me, and give me their time for these interviews.
We'll see what i have in store :D

Seems like whenever I make some positive gains with this build and everything else im perusing, i take a step back.
Lesson? Only Class 10 microSD's. they are not all created equal.
