The Case before I did anything to it



The inside of the case, once I saw that, right away, there was no way that case was going to stay the same



Took the case apart and threw it outside for some painting



Yup, I definitely like this new camera, need to learn how to play with these settings



I really hate the weather, started raining while I was painting, really screwed everything up :/ Will give it another shot tomorrow



Threw the stuff that needed to be painted to paint them!



More stuff that needs painting



The last picture of the day, my camera died on me and I didn't want to take pics with the phone

There's no stealing there


Nice start up by the way. And rain always struck when you don't want it.

Thanks, I checked your threads here, couldn't find it, one of your complete projects looks familiar, perhaps I've seen it at OCN?



Here's the update from today:

Did another coat of paint,





The stuff I painted yesterday



The stuff that needs painting



Painted!



The final pics of the case, no more painting!! It was 11pm so couldn't take an outside "good" pic.

Here's an update of today's work, had to work on some other stuff so couldn't do much.

The Case! (This picture is mainly to compare the new look of the case to the old look)



Everyone good to go?



I really like their style



Let's install the brains



It's hot outside (not really), let's make it cool



Standing tall



Time to install some blocks



I know what you're saying, that block is .... ok. Let me fix that for you :)



Thought I was done with painting, but I couldn't resist



Yeah, so it went from this



To This



Painted some screws black, wanted to finally get it all together, ran out of time! Will be measuring tubes this week (hopefully) and should be able to test my loop starting Friday or Saturday

Thanks,

still working on the water cooling, didn't start sleeving yet. My time is really limited during the week, so most of the work on the case has to be on weekends.

Update from this weekend's work, didn't do as expected on this build, mostly cuz I started another build (Yes, I'm juggling two builds at the same time)

Finished the loop





Filled it and tested it, though it was with distilled water and I do have some Red mayhem, might switch next weekend





Finally started the sleeving and here's the color of choice



The cables!



Here's a teaser of how the sleeving came out, didn't really take any proper pictures, so till next time
