there should be lots of big/little updates over the next couple of weeks or so.......:D

Nice to see your doing something with it now. :)

What is that peice of plastic you cut out, going to be used for? It looks a bit like a fan holder, but I'm not sure...

they have decided not to slice me open in the end

i just have to 'rest' it for a week or so..... :duh: but being almost 15, im not going to listen to them :naughty:

Anywho....im hoping to get my orderes put in tommorow for a whole load of watercooling and general modding bits..... :clap:



I did some marking out on the Mobo plate for where im gonna cut it. This will be so i can easily tighten/loosed the hold down for the TDX...





And some other random photos of the hardware.... (I love that RAM!!!)



and now back to killing people on BF2 :p

......Anyway, I was getting all the other 'bits' ordered when i sorta realised i can't afford half of it.... So now, there is no aquatube ect. but i still ordered the barbs, however, i think i forgot to order the 8/10mm tubing :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:
So, if i have, i'll have to go back to using my 1/2" ID tubing.... anyway im gonna get some more spray paint and filler to use on the front drivebays.....

but yesterday....::





I wanted the front door to look plain, so i wanted to get rid of the holes that show the HDD and Power LEDs.. (these are gonna be hooked up the LED's on some vandal switches -|- the Power one will go on the power switch -|- the HDD activity will go on the LED on the CC on off Vandal.....)



Because there are no LED's, i started sanding off the small images, and will dremel out the rest of the raised holes this afternoon....

first update of today....



i went out earlier and got my self some fairly cheap Bonbo / Car Body filler to use on the front bezels.....



I want the main front to look slightly plain, but flat and clean.... Im gopping to eventually get a small temp read-out to go next to the switches (which should be here tommorow morning......





This is my first experiance with filler, so i hope it looks good after some sanding.....

This morning, 3 of my 4 packages arrived.....






A load o' general Modding Stuff....



I was supprised how big this Heatsink was....







It didn't fit on becuase of my EK X18/19 so i cut down some of the smaller
fins...



i used some AS5 when mounting it instead of the funny stuff that came with it....

Package 2....





im quiet annoyed because i didn't get my PSU silencer or my Molex extractors.... :sigh:

Package 3



when i opened the package, i found this...



but when i opened up the box i found this...



I like the look of the HDD silencer....



fit very nicely....


BUT... i ordered 2 right-angled barbs, 14 straight barbs, and some 'molex eyes'but only got one of ech of the barbs and non of the molex things....

so i hope they may come later today....

hush..........:D

im not fussed if the hardware is old...

i'll keep it for a while, get a mid range DX10 card and 2Gb of RAM eventually....

Im off to go sanding again now, then when my other package with the various cables and fans come, i can start putting it together....
Im gonna keep the inside of th case as it is for now, then may take it all out and get it painted at school....

@ Rambo...:: It was taken by my Brother....
