Hi People,

It`s been a while since I was last on here and posted.
Ive done some work to my rig and thought i`d show ya
what it looks like. My apologies for crappy picture but i have
ipad 2 to thank for that, lol!

I was making a work log for the rig update but lost my phone
so had to take a pic with the ipad 2 instead. Ive still got a bit of work
to do. Finalising placement of led strip lights, blue and white cable braiding
for psu cables (cables that come from the psu outwards i.e power lead etc.

I also really want to add a 2nd 580gtx water cooled card as well and then also
get 2 black ice 420 rads and 2 m5 pumps on a bitspower dual pump top and then
finally and orbital typhoon i want to install in the side of the case where the window
is and then get some new fans and a ssd. Thats my goal any way lol. Im also gonna
mirror polish the whole case in and out once i get the money for the needed parts.

I have to say I love my z68 ud7 board with 172600k @ 4.8 gig with ocz ssd.
Its so quick and absolutely rock solid.

Anyway for now have a look and tell me what you think.

good to hear you got ace`s 2nd v2000 mate.

however would like to pm ya about how to bend the aluminium etc.
im also planning making ssd enclosure from acrylic, seen a few on another
site i want to try and emulate.

let me know if youre ok for me to pm ya in regards to the above.

Don't fancy moving that rad forward a bit so it shows nice fans instead of all the guts? :)

Sounds good mate!
Cad drawings huh?
Well I have been trying to use
sketchup to make up my acylic ssd
but I am having a bit of problems drawing
in 3d but getting there. Then I also need to
figure out how to draw each component i.e
one of the side panels of the ssd and save it
and later bring them all together to make the
result. But hopefully I will manage to do so.

Any way. Cant wait to see pics of yours. Make sure
to keep me posted.

My last design ambition is to cut out this tiger/dragon
design in the back panel of the pc then place a white
acrylic panel in the back where the design is cut out and
them illuminate it with white lighting. If I get it right should
look pretty fat!

Ok im off to ebay now to see if I can flog my alpha cool lcd
screen. Alpha cool products ever again? I THINK NOT! black
screen of death because they still havent written driver for windows 7.
and rubbish software. Going to get a orbital typhoon instead and replace
it with that bad boy. B)
