    as the title states. 2017 is looking up for me. yall havent seen me around but ive been lurking in the shadows.

    this year has actually pushed for getting my massive system to get completed.

    gonna drop a few photos i dont have many at the moment but just a teaser[​IMG].

    Parts left to buy:cpu block,360 rad,tube resx2(maybe)and pumps.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] it took all this rattle can paint to paint the inner skeleton of this monster. wanted to get the skeleton a gloss finish as the black will be breaking up the red[​IMG]

    i said at the start it was gonna be the color of my bike. as i get things in and started i will post pics. i plan on live streaming the rebuild when i have everything. planned on souly face book stream but have had request for twitch. i might just do twitch if there is enough request for it. like my aurora its gonna be time consuming but not as involved. the hardware is the same as i have listed in my profile. it isnt the newest stuff out but its still a power house. when i get home ill snap some shots of the newish parts and load them up. i currentky have to buy a new ek cpu block,gpu block new radiator pump and res. all this wasnt in the budget for this but things happen.

    have fun and frag on

    all this is just mock up. when i get every thing its all coming back out to do a live feed. the parts tgat are gonna stay in are the cables rads and possibly res's. everything else is coming back out just to be reinstalled. cant put a date and time on that yet as i have had some unforeseen problems arise in this build that wasnt in the budget

    kinda had to slow down work has been a bit slow. i have been thinking a lot about cutting the front fan mounts out[​IMG] [​IMG] and putting 1 or 2 of these frozen q res's behind the front grille. the red of course and id like to fit 2 but that depends on how tall and wide that area is

    Nice. That's it! As soon as I get back from work, paint my house, sell my house, find a new house, move to new house, buy a dog for my daughter and get 5 mins to myself, I'm rebuilding my PC!!!!

    finally got to get back to work on this. and this ek 360 is a monster of a rad. im working on ways to route the flow of the system. the last pictures are my current ideas. and im also using old tubing to mock all the lengths and what not so i dont waste any new tubing with oops's[​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    painter took my case badges which was black on black and silver leafed the wording and outline. wish this came out the box this way[​IMG] [​IMG]

    wel yet again another snag. i did not think about the mounts for these res. i have to come up with a piece of sheet metal that will sink them back and allow me to mount and the kicker is i cant weld since all the stuff is in the case. how ever i am kicking an idea around to use 4 tubes the 2 200's behind the front panel and 2 170s on another piece of sheet metal inside the case with pumps attatched to them. custom work some times is way to tedious

    Sorry to hear about your pet squirrel dude, I remember you telling me the story about her a while back.

    As for the computery stuff... I'm sure you'll find a way to make it work lol. Looks like it's going to be a killer build when it's finished!
