that's it for now for parts
now starting build

first sorry for pics but they will be better
ok now only painted power supply and start sleeving
but everything start somewhere
24 pins sleeving

PSU and 24pins done



yessss receive little baby today

what i received,
Bitfenix recon white
GA-Z77N-Wifi
and Caselabs S3 white
my wife took some pics , with ipad,, really sorry for pics



ohhhhh look at this little cutie

ok,
im very disapointed by Gigabytes Z77N-wifi
its my fault, i did not to much research about this board

1:
no Vcore setting, heu......... z77 without vcore setting, its a joke

2:
what the fuc..... with the power placement on the board
i dont undertand gigabytes on this one
look the results, why not do it like all other itx board, just beside ram, ridiculus
sorry for pics






and usb3 hahahahahaha ridiculus, but seem to be same on other brand


Nothing special but installed hardware in case for test averything is working and placement test
[IMG]http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y15...ps278191ce.jpg[/IMG]
I really don't like where is the 24 pins on motherboard but I will keep it finally, not a the right place but not so bad


wait for other rad on top, I will paint the Un Holder and res mount white, and not sure but I think change rear fan for a purple led one, I change connector for purple connector, I think I will put purple sticker on motherboard's 24 pins


with door, the 24 pins is not so bad, not a the real place but....., think if I keep gigabyte or change for an Asrock or stinger but its another $150 and more just for cable placement.......... not sure at this moment


I really like the fan In front, they seem to be invisible and only led are visible, change switch but the led on power switch are very low or dimmed, maybe in next order
more fan and Fanblade's case feet are on the way to my home
now wait to have more money to order fittings, rad, video card and all waterblock


update

[/URL]
receive my GPU, its a reference PCB but not reference cooler, ssd will be white with a special ting on it, and painted 2.5 to 3.5 adaoter for a WD black 500G
if Vieuxchnock can stop buying evry block and accessories for HD7950,:head-slap: :lol:

[/URL]
ahhhhh these feet are perfect for a Caselabs S3, this little red thing want race with my previous gif,

[/URL]
I post this pics to show what happens with white sleeving with colored cable, but I don't have tools to do my cable, next project you will not see this again, but need to bevery close to see it

[/URL]

[/URL]
I painted XSPC memory adapter, I really like the result

[/URL]
with side panel

[/URL]
I changed all connector for purple connectors, I really like it, I painted the res holder in white a lot better than black

[/URL]
look the color of the pastel purple coolant, wow!, I think its a perfect match

like I said, still have a lot of job but I really like the purple theme,


need some angle adapter to finish it
still using acrylic tubing but no bending
I will use white angle adapter
I don't like it without, more industrial look with angle adapter

first GPU under water and painted backplate


painted Dazmode special edition CPU Block



in case







Snef's Purple Chimera is Complete
some Final Pics

ah!... not closed
anyway, no led


With Leds

now stop talking and place to Pics
























and the last one, the Snef's Caselabs Family


already planning for my next Project
a bench test,

I noticed that when I posted but wasn't sure if that was current. We'll have to get together for a coffee some day.
