    New update! Getting close to the end of the Coolermaster competition! Have been very busy the last weekend, spent around 30hrs on the computer on saturday and sunday and had to take today off work just to get it up and running. Taking it to get photographed tomorrow so i can get some proper shots of it for the competition.

    Sorry if its not in order the update, a bit stressed due to still having a lot to do before the photo shoot.

    Anyways, gonna start with the parts. A lot of the parts are from my previous build but there are also new parts

    Coolermaster test bench
    Intel 3570K
    Asus Maximus GENE-V
    Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1600MHz
    128gb OCZ Vertez 2 SSD
    Corsair AX850 PSU
    2 X Gainward GTX570
    2 x Lamptron FC5 V2
    4 x Schyte Gentle Typhoon
    A lot of leds

    Watercooling:
    2 x EK-FC5X0 GTX GW Backplate - Black
    2 x EK-RES X3 150
    2 x EK-DDC X-TOP CSQ - Acetal
    2 x EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)
    1 x EK-MOSFET ASUS M5G - Acetal + Nickel
    1 x EK Supremacy cpu block
    1 x EK Dual parallell sli block
    2 x laing ddc pumps
    A lot of EK fittings
    Mayhem's Aurora tharsis red
    [​IMG]

    Sleeved the led wires, the cat loves it
    [​IMG]

    Installed in the acrylic
    [​IMG]

    The lamptrons installed
    [​IMG]

    Mounted the rads and the fans to an xspc rad mount, quite a tight fit, a little bit over 1mm to spare :)
    [​IMG]

    Plumbing done on loop 1, was a bit more difficult than i first expected. Ignore the blue cables, resleeved them after
    [​IMG]

    Had to check what it looked like with the Hyper212 that i've used during the build. Had to remove all the water cooling so i could get all the sizes right
    [​IMG]

    So many cables, had to cut every cable and shorten them, they would not fit in the case as is.
    [​IMG]

    Tried to get hold of some genuine CoolerMaster sticker but it was a lot harder than i expected. So contacted Coolermaster and got approved to make my own stickers. Was gonna go with normal stickers but due to the case is slightly textured it wouldn't look good so went with these polyurethane based "3D" stickers. Got a few different color combinations made so i could pick the one i liked the most. Big thanks to Mr Glasberg over at staffans.fi for making these priority 1 and making them in more or less a day

    Assembled and more or less ready to go. Still have a lot to do but this will have to do for the competition.

    Leak test ongoing

    Don't wanna post too many pictures of the bench, gonna wait until tomorrow after the "proper" photos are taken. Next update most likely tomorrow.

    Thx! Yeah, i've spent a few 100hrs already and still feel i need to spend a lot more in order to finish it, but hopefully it will get me a prize in the competition. If not its ok, i love building stuff :) Still have some mods to do after the competition which i would have liked to be done before but that's allright

    So here we go. As I'm looking through the pictures taken yesterday i realize i should have taken a lot more. Anyways, here are most of them without posting very similar looking ones. Enjoy!

    Without leds on. Sadly a few fingerprints on it but better with them there than photoshopped away :)

    Still have a few things to do with the computer but this will be it for the coolermaster mod competition. Wanna try to make my ram look like the gpu support with the same red glow :) Not sure if its gonna work but gonna give it a go, also have some other ideas. But will have a weeks or two break now, need to sort out the rest of my life that has been left aside while building this :)
