    Sorry for the downtime of the pictures :p

    Been busy with the PSU's, needed the most efficient way for the cables and the airflow

    Also the loop is ready in the backside.


    This was a small solution to get as much as possible space for cables next to the psu.

    On both sides of the desk a Bitspower mini X-station for fans and molex connections.

    Here i had war with the cables a few times :p

    [​IMG]

    And the main battlefield.

    Here you go :p

    Made some time free to give a little update.
    Still got a lot to do this weekend to be able to update from my main pc :)


    I knew i could get it smaller ! :p

    [​IMG]

    First leds are working.
    Also some cables ready for under the mainboard tray.

    [​IMG]


    Further on with the pump-tray and got the reservoir hanging again.

    [​IMG]

    Used the same anti vibration rubber under my HDD's and tray as i use for my glass.
    I really love this stuff.

    [​IMG]


    Guess cable management will come later, more and more cables every day :)

    [​IMG]


    Also a small uv led stroke for the right side fans.

    [​IMG]


    Now also leds in the pumptops.
    I like it more then the regular black ones i had.
    This photo is with UV leds in it, but thats WAY too purple.
    But somehow i cant show it in photo's

    [​IMG]


    So i tried blue leds after that, and i liked it :)

    [​IMG]

    Next update tomorrow :)

    Looks good. That cable management should be a bit of a chore however!

    Wow. Looking good! I did not know the anti vibration rubber actually makes any difference! I will have to give it a try some day.
