Hi!

Last 2013 update! It's a small one but curiously a lot of work behind it

I'm in the sleeving process and it's from the ground up since I'm doing new wires. So far the 8-pins and the 24-pins are done and I had to put the motherboard and the GPU in the case for a dry fit for the PCIe cables. So I took some pictures in the process.

I also vinyl wrapped the GPU backplate since I didn't wanted the CSQ design on it. I also did wrapped a portion of the PSU because the branding appear in reverse. I did kept the "Yellow" portion of the RM 850 since it matches the theme.

Here's a few pictures...











That's all for now. Tomorrow I will do the PCIe cables since I now have the length I needed to do them.

I also need to do the molex and SATA power cables and the fans sleeving and cable length adjustment.


I wish you all a Happy New Year!

You can put the side panel on w/ the sleeving going like that to the 8-pin?

I think so, the panels on those are recessed.

BTW Lowfat, This is pretty much the same type of cables I PMed you about for the S3. Super short runs from PSU to MB.

Thanks!

Yes without any problems. Like Birk said, the panels are a little recessed from the side brace. When the cable is in place I still have a few millimeters before touching the window.

Sunday's update!!

The sleeving is almost done! What a pain stacking process! I only need to do the triple sata power wire for the SSD's and i'm done!

Today I did a bit of cable management but until the radiators aren't in place it will still move so nothing is completed there. Once my sata power cable will be done, it will be the start of the tubing step and also the installation of the blocks.

Here's a few pictures...

Not the cleanest job but it will be out of sight so it's ok


The mini x-station to centralize the case feets illumination control


Top radiator sleeved and wired


First glimpse of the cable management





Take care everyone!

Ok it's done!!!!!!!!!!!

After an awful delay I finally managed to finish it

Tomorrow after my work day I will post the final pictures in the second post but here are what happenend between in the last 3 days


Bare naked frame so the work can begin!


Motheboard and CPU with stock coolers, then naked, then with the waterblocks installed!






GPU with stock cooler, then naked, then with the block and the backplate installed!








Aquaero 6 XT heatsink installation (before and after)....really not mandatory but I liked it!




On friday night the first fittings were installed but the loop was done on saturday




Loop DONE!




Here's a night shot during the leak test phase.




The rig is running fine it's just too late to post all the pictures so I decided to only post the work done to achieve the final result and the end result will be available tomorrow.

Take care!
