Hi everyone sorry for the looooooooooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnggggggggggg ggggggggg delay between this and the last update.

The build is almost done...as a matter of fact it should be done by the end of tomorrow including the leak phase.

Here's what I've done last weekend and yesterday :

Last weekend, I installed the CPU and GPU blocks but when I was about to secure the second GPU on the FC Terminal Bridge, I put to much pressure on the middle screw and cracked my brand new block ....big round of applause for me here please

Luckily, a fellow member on the HWC forum was selling one just like mine so I jump on it.

Yesterday, I installed the new block on the second GPU and then on the bridge...this time it went well

I did the last wires installation, UV install and wired, SSD install and wired.

I re-routed the PCIe cables because I didn't like the way they were initially and installed the GPUs on the board.

Last thing was the installation of the case feets


Here's the pictures


CPU and GPU block install (sorry over-exposed)










Light bar upgrade on the Corsair's




GPUs installed...the top one almost touch the tubing above!!




Some natural light shots just for the kick of it.










Setup under installed UV




Case feets installed
(first 2 pictures have muted red correction because it was too ugly and the second one has stupid glare )












There you go!
Today I need to do the last 4 acrylic tubes and then it's leak testing!

Ok after a VERY frustrating afternoon of acrylic bending I decided to take a break of it for the day.

I only manage to do 2 of the last 4 tubes I have to do. And with a pretty lame result too

The smallest one was one of the most pain stacking things to do and I will not tell you how I ended up screwing everything in there. We frenchies have a thick book of swear words and I have used every single one today

Here are some pictures...











I'm really disappointed of the result right now so I'm going to take 2 Advils for my headache and look at it tomorrow...

Triple bend, ya I don't go there. That is just too hard to pull off IMO. Don't suppose there is any other way to do the run?

Since i'm stubborn as hell, after my earlier mess I said to myself let's destroy tubing by attempting the 2 most difficult bends I had to do. Well what do you know I made them both in no time and no real struggle....life is wierd sometimes...

Here goes the candy cane bends
