BUILD LOG I hate useless noise as much as the next guy, so the grills had to go. CUT! I needed to get the water out of the case somehow. It had to be practical and look good at the same time. So I needed more holes in this case. That alu is thick, but there's also the steel frame within the FT02. So had to cut that out also. QDC's installed. (that's dust not a scratch) Mobo water cooling parts installed! (DT 5NOZ and two EK blocks for the UD7) Did this a while ago when I'd planned to transfer my rig. I'm no pro like Lutro0, but damned if I didn't learn from his vids and guides. I sleeved everything in this build. The CCFL's, case wires (except the USB3, they are soldered on and the connector is too big) you name it. All sleeved with FTWPC sleeving 2.0. Kinda glad I sleeved the PSU before starting the computer build. I think I'll keep that procedure, cause when you finally get the parts, you don't really want to sleeve anything anymore. That tool really helps get the best possible outcome for the sleeving. It needed a little pulling to tighten the weeve, but I did that for the final pics. I even sleeved the tubes... yes the tubes. But not paracord sleeving, I had to give myself a real headache over this one. I wanted shiny sleeving. Every tube had to be prepped before installation. It was a real hassel to get all this done. My fingers were purple from the knurled fittings (next build I'm using swiftech compressions, moonsoon are ugly). Everything had to be first mounted to determine tube lenghts, then un-assembled and sleeved. And the sleeving was a pain to cut. The Compression fitting rings had to be modded to fit the extra millimeter of metal sleeving. And worst of all was getting the compression fittings to actually screw in. In the end, it can be done with purple fingers! So now to assemble fully fitted tubes. I had to assemble the tubing outside of the case and then install it in the case. The actual installation had steps to follow, else I'd be stuck with an unscrewed fitting in a very tight space. I also forgo the shortest possible tube routing law for this one; because why wouldn't I?! NOTE: To install tubes with fittings onto block, ROTARY compression fittings are required. Else you'll fray the sleeving. Now to test for some leaks. Well while we do that, I might as well play around in the puter. What am I missing? Ohh right, the lighting! I tried for some money shots even if I'm not quite finished. I'm really liking the end results. Quiet happy actually. Changed the top grill. close up pic is close. Gonna use this as a final pic. I don't have access to a metal workshop. So I contacted Dwood on the OCN forums (dude is a prodigy for the community). Wanted to get rid of the SLI bridge ruining an otherwise beautiful color theme. So I sanded the acrylic with 400 grit. I thought it would be enough, but I think a piece of smoked acrylic would have done better (does that even exist?). Velcro, I like Velcro. Needed to have something that could hold the SLI badge on the bridge. Trying LED's before gluing them in. Thanks for looking!
