A little bit about me

Hi guys, thanks for taking a look at my first build log. I wouldn't call myself a professional PC builder just yet and I'm only 14. I come from Liverpool England and I'm just a enthusiast that loves making stuff look better and go faster. I first got into computers when I got my first PC, a custom built hackintosh with a Pentium and a red racer £15 case. Ha my PC is still a hackintosh now and some of the parts are in the build you see today so I guess you could call it a never ending story. Anyway I'm always saving up for that new part that will push my computer that little bit further so you can understand money doesn't come easy when your legally to young to work.

My first "real case" was a Zalman Z11 plus HF1 and I loved it from there I started saving every penny to make this build great so I hope you enjoy what I've done so far.

I'd love to see in more details on how you did the white hoses on the h100i I have the same Aio

Its just a basic wrap quick and easy. You need to order some white (or what ever colour) tubing I think mine are primochill, it adds quite a bit of thickness but I think that makes it all look even better

by wrap i assume were talking vinyl? also did you disconnect the hose to wrap it?
