Nice build, RD - The only things I think I'd of done differently, would of been to use hardline tubing, instead of flex, and possibly spray the CPU block and rear I-O elements to colour-match.

Scott! Long time no see.

 

It's hardline - 16mm PETG. I bent it with a heatgun using an improvised jig, then pulled off the satin finish with 500 and 1000 grit soft sanding pads.

If I was looking to spray the CPU block I could have started from the acetal version and saved about 20 quid, but I fell in love with the nickel plated copper.

Agree about the I/O shield though, that's a bit fugly.

Indeed, sir, it's been a while! How be thee?

My bad lol - looked like softline due to the finish. Nicely done.

Oh I get it, and it's a nice block - that one boils down to personal preference - I'm not a fan of chrome/nickel finish myself.

Agree about the I/O shield though, that's a bit fugly.


Yep lol - Not only the shield, but the individual I/O modules too. But again, personal preference!
