Not too much to show so far this week, started with the GPU block and redid it 3 times due to what I can only describe as OCD...

Hi everyone.. It's been one very busy week so not much to show in regards to results, but I have done some dipping..
 
Got a CPU block and a 240mm rad to fit in the bottom of the case, obviously they had to get a bit of love!! :loved:
 
First I had to do some masking to make sure I dont get the base coat everywhere..

My very tidy working area ..

A massive roll of hydrographic film..

Tools of the trade.

Measured and framed..

Had to get a larger dipping tank so I borrowed my sons toy box ;)
 
dscf2317x5qux.jpg
 
 
Some aerosol activator..

Here you can see the film starting to dissolve from the activator..

Thanks Andy, glad you like it.. ;)

Today I would Like to give a massive thanks to Joseph (Greybeard) and Corsair for sending me this amazing ....... box :D
 
 
dscf2355ges8z.jpg
 
 
... which contains an awesome little addition to this project..
 
dscf23599rspr.jpg
 
 
The Corsair Vengeance M65 Gaming Mouse..
 
dscf2368ojsj9.jpg
 
 
Looks wise this mouse is absolutely stunning and it feels very comfortable in the palm of your hand.. On the top it has the scroll wheel and a response time selector which lets you choose between 1ms, 2ms, 4ms or 8ms..
 
dscf238726s4i.jpg
 
 
On the side it has a "Sniper" button that when pressed slows the response of the mouse down to make precise movement easy as pie.. 
 
dscf2380q7sl5.jpg
 
dscf23825ks2c.jpg
 
dscf2385obsz5.jpg
 
On the bottom it has removable weights so you can select a weight that is most comfortable for you..
 
dscf2394xksry.jpg
 
 
Been using it for a few days now and I must say, it's outstanding!

Finally got a bit of an update... :)
 
It was about time I got the case filled with something so I started with the rads and tube res.. The tube res is by no means set to go there, just playing around with some ideas at the moment..
 
Anyway, here we go..

Ok, I left the glue to harden over night and did a quick test fit this morning..
 
Perfect fit..  [-(
 
img_2329x5zob.jpg
 
Thinking I should widen the the two "damaged" parts on the case opening side to join them together..

Someone has to comment, anyway it's worth following. Give it a try and see what you think. Where will the psu cables be, looks tight next to that rad. :-\

Well now, that is smart modding. Just a thought about the heat, is there any airflow for the psu. Looks like it will get a bit toasty

Hi Andy

 

The PSU is still just as ventilated as without the cover as it sucks air in from the bottom of the case and blows it out the back.. ;)

 

..............

 

Had some issues fitting the motherboard with the bulky top rad so I need to replace it..
 
I did a quick photoshoot early this morning to keep everyone entertained..
