I received the motherboard block, and the custom charged me 40$ for it which is suck :(
 
MoboBlock1_zps8888bf40.jpg
 
Took me quite a while to take off the ROG led, one of the screw was dull and I've tried tons of ways to unscrew it
 
MoboBlock3_zps1c7aa347.jpg
 
 
I dont think I'm going to use the VRAM block for a couple of reason
1. I like the heat pipe on stock VRAM
2. I dont think the VRAM creates tons of heat when I tested it, the heat was more on the southbridge since its located near the GPU's
3. I'm not ready to modify the stock VRAM heatsink, I can easily cut the pipe but...
 
In the other hand I realised that I have a problem with the AC backplate, its too thick thus it clashed with the ram clip ; the GPU won't go through all the way in to the pci-e slot

after asking around actually there are also people who's having the same problem and one way to solve it is to cut the backplate
so its Dremel time, took me a while to cut the backplate since it's pretty thick
 
sorry for the crap picture on this one, I think I hit the tripod at slow shutter

After more polishing, filing and touch up

Job done!

I've also painted the temp panel to black, the panel is made of thin aluminium

So its been yet another busy days at work
I received these today
 
Sentry_zpsd1bc8b2b.jpg
 
NEWPSU_zps68ac8aeb.jpg
 
 
Bought the fan controller since my plan to split the fans using fan hub at 7v is a failure due to voltage reason not being stable/cut down during start up
I love how the sentry mix look since the first sentry, I used the first version on my previous build
 
this is how it looks on the case
 
Sentry2_zps64ddc6b6.jpg
 
The new psu is also an upgrade, I've been re-calculating the wattage use of this build
and its on the edge of "recommended PSU" of 856w
While I have a lot of stuff which requires power from the usb port, decided to get the 1000w
 
On another note, after watching the monsoon bending kit video on youtube over and over again
I set up a bending station, pardon me if its such a mess
again as I said before, my house under heavy renovation so a lot of stuff are laying around

Result:

Will be doing more bending in the next couple of days
expect more update soon!

This is totally awesome! It's a shame that the new Haswell-E is coming out and this socket won't be supported :/ Can't wait to see the final reveal!

I haven't give it a try yet

I'm still waiting for the custom fan port hub and the cables from the sentry is still under sleeving

 

but I love the knob better, its more solid and controllable unlike the mix 1

 

This is totally awesome! It's a shame that the new Haswell-E is coming out and this socket won't be supported :/ Can't wait to see the final reveal!

 

thx :) stay tuned

Updates!
 
This would be a very quick and small update, the build will be finished soon
All I need is to wait for my final package from Frozencpu (which already in the custom) containing low 90 adapter and some bolts for my fan radiators
The package will be here on Monday
 
Meanwhile I've finished the res of the tube bending except for the one from GPU to South Bridge (which require the low 90 adapter)
Pardon me for the crappy picture, its really hard to take good photos at midnight, after 2 hours of straight tube bending and with warm lighting
 
TubeRes1_zpsf84e8463.jpg
 
TubeRes2_zps0e7c0f1d.jpg
 
Tuberes3_zpsd8fa81ec.jpg
 
I've forgotten to take pics of the tube running from top rad to CPU block, guess it will have to wait until the loop is all done
The hard tubing is pretty tricky to be photographed, wrong angle and the tube would look off while it is actually straight
 
On another note , I have a lot of dust sitting in the case due to long waiting period
So I decided to take it all off today, and do final cleaning including washing the tubes and polishing it with car polish wax
and make all the nickel shinier
 
Cleaning_zps8b7ff813.jpg
 
These are all the tubes and fittings I'm using (total of 20 compression fittings)

I still can't resist how good the GPU block is , :rolleyes:

And the CLU is ON!

Thx for holding on til now, big thanks to whoever currently reading this
next update would be the final tube, cables and leak testing (I hope :)

Another day, another updates!
All I can say is that it's nearly there :)
Without further ado 
 
So I have the last order from the US came in, contain some of the last adapters and plugs I need
Also bought a couple of fans just in case ...
 
ItemLast_zpsa435dcde.jpg
 
I have taken all the tubes off and clean them to remove the tube bits from sawing
and also polished it to remove some scratches during the bending with car wax
The compression fitting can easily scratch the tubes
 
Reinstall_zps489c8924.jpg
 
And I've finished bending the tube from South Bridge to GPU
 
Tubes_zps0207bbed.jpg
 
Another view
 
Tubes3_zps8c087598.jpg
 
Tubes2_zps6142b14d.jpg
 
And the fan hub has also arrived , I can now control all the fans :)
there will be more sleeved cables coming tomorrow especially for the LED (I will be using NZXT LED I have laying around) and for the fan controller cables
 
Fanhub_zpsf493f9b1.jpg
 
Lastly, I've played around with the cables management
It's not perfect and I'll mess around with it more later
 

Cables_zps3984512c.jpg

 

Next stop would be the long awaited leak test, it's pretty nerve wrecking since I've no experience with hard tubing
We'll see how it goes
finger crossed
