Ive been waiting to do one of these for years and I have always envisioned it having a nice silver/copper theme.

Also ive Been waiting on more sleeve and cable to finish my psu and all the cable management, there probably wont be much progress for the next month as ive got a lot on.

You even managed a silver board. 

Did you do the usb 3 angle yourself? I've had usb3 cables on the back burner for over a year now because I know it will be a pain to solder. :laugh: The current market options are: big as a house cables, or individual components.

That lone motherboard post could mount a cable hiding panel.

It's the only board on the market i felt fit the build.

 I didn't do the the angle myself, I was planning on doing so but I would have probably spent more money trying to do one right that just buying one, It's from moddiy they are great for connectors and such.

Doing the usb cable took 2 failed tries and i would say the better part of 3 hours to get the one good one, it was one of the most tedious things I've ever done.

I had my first ops moment while working on this today.. I may have cut the front panel audio cable to short.. :P to fix it I just ordered an internal extender for $4 that ill sleeve and hide the connectors, it is going to give me more room to run the cable behind the board and hide it better so that's a positive!

Thanks Bill :) 

The build is coming to an end, all the parts are hear apart from the primochill vue coolant im going to use, the next few days im going to be putting the loop together and decide on the final look for the pipe, i hit a bit with the wire wheel on the bench grinder and i like how that looks, its nice and shiny with a nice effect but not so shiny.

Bleeding the loop was a pain with the pump res in the bottom

It came out great. :D You might want to hit the tubing with paste wax or clearcoat to keep it from turning dark. That slight downward tilt of your reservoir might give you trouble later too. Any air left in the loop will get recirculated because it will drift up near the pump ports.

Thanks, Yeah i did put a clear coat on the tube and im going to a support under the top side of the res when i drain the loop to change the coolant in the next few weeks.
