We are moving in two weeks so I took some time to work on the build, because I'll have to send the case to France then (and won't be able to touch it until next summer when we'll move to Paris...).
So let me show you the progress I made last weekend.

First of all, A big thank you to all my sponsors: Corsair, EKWB, Hardware Labs, Cooling Lab and Pexon PCs!




I started by putting those sexy water blocks on the M6F. They look amazing!




As the MB shield was off, I had some time to work on something I previewed in a previous updates, the motherboard logo.

Despite of the new M8F that has RGB capabilities, the Maximus VI Formula only offer red LED color for the central logo.
Well, until now. :D





I cut the logo using my Silhouette Cameo, and cut a small LED stripe that should fit perfectly.



Perfect length! Now need to cut the rear of the shield to let the LED stripe cable some space.




I really love the result. Can't wait to see it in action!

Now, time to put the shield back on the motherboard.





Next on the list what the GPU block.


I really love the black stock cooler, but something better is coming.








EKWB goodness! :D

The rest of the day consisted in this:




The bends from the radiator chamber to the upper chamber was a PITA to do, but I really love the result.

That's all for today, but as I'm a nice person, I'll give you a preview of what is coming in the next update. :p

Time has come for the final update guys! :)



I would love to start by saying a big thank you to my sponsors: Corsair, EKWB, Hardware Labs, Cooling Lab and Pexon PCs! . It have been a fantastic project to work on, and I couldn't have been able to do it without your support!

So after many hours working on the Hikari Project, the build is finally finished! Like I said in previous updates, I had a very short time left to finish the build, but I was finally able to do it (minus the power switch, but I have been waiting for Dimastech to send it to me for more than 2 monthes....).

But more than words, let me show final pictures of the HKR Project.

Let there be light!

































And, in bonus, my setup before we move.



Corsair Strafe RGB keyboard, Corsair Scimitar RGB mouse, Corsair Void Wireless headset and Dell U3415w monitor (I will make some more screenshots of those awesome peripherals soon).

I'm really happy with the result. It's very close to what I had in mind the first time I imagined the Hikari project.
There will surely be a V2 (and maybe a mATX version) though!

Thank you for following the project!
