A quick update. Finally settled on the color I wanted for the drone reservoir. It took me 2 weeks and multiple different colors of silver and grey, but I am pleased with what I have done.








Additionally, I have received an ASUS 1060 for this build.






There will be another update later tonight if not tomorrow showing all the cables!!

Would you mind sharing the measurements for your custom shroud? The well being of all 570x builders is depending on it! Your progress is terrific by the way!

The length of the custom shroud that I will be using is as follows: 15" x 6.75" x 3.75"

Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been busy with life and family medical issues recently. I will post something here as soon as I can.

Hello everyone!! There is going to be a lot of updates in the next few days!! I plan on finishing this build up just in time for Dreamhack Austin.

To start off, the PSU cover!! I worked in conjunction with my friend at Clockwerk Industries on the design and size of the PSU cover. Once I received the cover, I added some pass through ports to make it ready for the tubing layout.







Then I went to go get some vinyl made for the glass panels. Time for the logos!!

Huge shoutout to Joe from Senpai Studios for taking the time to teach me how to sleeve cables! I would have not been able to do this without his guidance.

I spent the day doing some sleeving for the build. I went with OD green and Desert Tan Camo for the colors to represent the armed forces that are apart of Rainbow Six

Once I finished the first terminations, I connected them to the correct ports on the mother board and GPU to make sure that they fit properly and let them relax into the position they will be in once everything is assembled.



Additionally, I cut a piece of acrylic to mount the Pro Controller and the LED controllers for the fans and gave them a nice clean look. Thanks to Joe from Senpai Studios with the help of shortening the cables runs on the controllers.



Completed the termination of the sleeved cables and routed them to the correct locations.

This build took a bit longer than I had planned due to some issues regarding my own personal bills and life, which can happen to anyone.

I would like to thank Corsair for giving me the honor of doing this build and being sponsored by them! Without them, none of this would have been possible!

I would also like to thank all those involved in this build: Joe from Senpai Studios, Jim from Clockwerk Industries, Miguel from EK, and my friend Matthew.

One build down. Time to plan the next one!!
