Sleeving update



Went with the heatshrinkless method



GPU sleeve




Motherboard 8 pin



Made a cover out of acrylic and wrapped it with carbon fiber



Proceed to tubing..



Once the tubing was done.. Leak tested it..



Desktop fully running





Back side (a mess )



Made a bracket for the HDD on the back



With the side panel on





Last shot




Still have a lot to do .. like cleaning up the wires and painting up the top part of the case.. sadly I ran out of time .. I rushed the build to run so i can participate on the launch of a new game called "Arche Age"

That's all for today! Thank you!

Looks cool but r u trying to keep your rad hot. Why do you have intake fans at front of case and exhaust fans on inside. Basically going to hold all the heat in.

I did not thought of that..

Thank you for pointing that out.. I'll just change the fans position..

I thought push and pull configuration was best for a radiator?
