    I've posted this project in a couple of other places and thought i'd post it here aswell,the build consists of a Lian Li G70,powder coated white outside,black inside with the roof cut out to house a PA120.3 and the floor cut out to house a PA120.2,window cut out and a few cable management holes.The hardware going inside will be:

    Asus P6T Deluxe
    Core i7 920
    6Gb DDR3 Corsair Dominator 1600MHz
    GTX 280
    Antec Quattro 1000W PSU
    1TB Samsung Spinpoint F1
    500Gb Samsung Spinpoint F1

    Cooling:

    PA120.3
    PA120.2
    DDC-1T Pro/XSPC Top
    DDC-1T Ultra/XSPC Top
    2 x Bitspower 5.25 White bay res's
    XSPC Delta V3 CPU Block
    MIPS Mosfet and dual N/B-S/B Block
    Danger Den White UV 3/8"IDx5/8"OD Hose
    White Enermax Cluster Fans

    Thanks for the comments everyone,much appreciated :D

    @game14,it's diffuser used in TV lighting,but it also works quite well as a dust filter.

    Wow very nice, you managed to pack a ton of loop in there while making it look very uncluttered. I am definitely a sucker for the oreo colors as well - always looks classy. Can't wait to see the final product!

    :eek:,been a bit busy the past couple of days so heven't had time to upload pics,anyway i've got all the hardwired cables done now,I need to move the plugs on the SATA power cable before I can finish the modular cables,I had hoped to take the braiding right in to the PSU but as you can see it's so tight in there with those heatsinks there just wasn't the space for that volume of braid,so I had to just heatshrink the ends of the bundles,even then it was a struggle to get the cover back on

    WOW!!! That is sooo nice I wish I had the patience to do that. Is it hard to sleeve those PSU cables or does it just require the right tools and careful labeling of the wires? I wanna do that, but I don't know what to use to pry out those 24pin, 8pin, and etc wires. I love that black and white theme!!! Keep up the awesome work.

    Thanks for the comments everyone :)

    I used one of these to get the pins out

    [​IMG]

    Tha 24pin wasn't too bad but the pci-e power were a b***h to get out.

    The reservoirs are These,I had to order them from the US.

    Awesome work, mate. Is there a way we could get a shot of the case behind the motherboard, please? I am interested to see your cable management. (trying to get some ideas for myself)
