Funny. I've always named my vehicles (my current one is Saoirse) but I've never named my computers (except the *&^%$#@! Acer desktop and netbooks I had but I can't repeat those names here).

Well, the CPU is in its socket. IT was only a 3 month test, I think. After the trouble I had prior with Gigglebyte and ASSrock boards, I wasn't going to take any chances.

I'm pretty sure we'll go with the Stormtrooper theme.

Let me know what you think. It still needs a lot of work, but it is a good approximation of what it looks like in my head.

Obviously, the art was done by people who know what they are doing (deviantART mostly). Once we settle for a final design I'll ask for permission for using it and give credit where credit is due.

Meanwhile, here it is. What do you think?

Nice find & cut but find quite heavy for the back panel design
Thanks for your input NoN.

Believe me when I tell you that it involves a lot more work than finding and cutting.

Regarding the back panel, I agree, but it is kind of the idea. It is for a trade show, so one side, at least, has to be distinguishable from afar. Since we are sticking to b&w with this one, we are going for the "heavy" backside, while keeping it light for the front and window panel which is what people will look at when the are actually in the booth.

Nevertheless will do some more "find & cut" to make it lighter and see what we can come up with.

Cheers,

J

Yeah, i do understand since you're building all those custom PCs...for others!
I do appreciate your work and it does impress me to see how easy & well organized is for you now building those.

That would be a safe bet. Means freedom.

Yeah, with the bad luck you have had I don't blame you.

I wish you the very best of luck with the new mobo and cpu Gary and I look forward to some pics and benchmarks my friend.

Hello guys.

Here's how it looks like right now.

Since I do not really like having the case full of tubes everywhere, I decided to experiment with tube routing and went kindda crazy. What do you think?
I could have done it with a shorter run of tubing, but with tighter bends, and since the pump has more than enough flow and head, I thought the additional length couldn't hurt. Besides it would have hindered what we need to do cable management wise.

Video cards should be here tomorrow, so maybe we'll be able to install the blocks before the end of the day and start testing the integrity of the loop.

Still looking for different alternatives for the case theme, but haven't found anything I really like so far,
although I have a very nice piece of news: Gigabyte is going to sponsor this rig, so maybe we'll go crazy and do something to match the board's color scheme!!! We'll see...

This is kindda turning into a build log, so let me know if I'm being annoying.
I'd really appreciate your input and advice.

Cheers,

J

Juan, that looks nice. I guess you've hit the big time with Gigabyte sponsoring you. Well done, you deserve it. You may have to go a little green with your theme to match the Gigabyte colors. Plus, a little color on the white case would make it stand out. Maybe a little Yoda. You're doing great.
