  1. Thanks Kaduva! Your comments are much appreciated. Be sure to stick a vote in when the public voting goes live although I am still not sure when that will be.
  2. Hey Guys, My totally average video of the PC is here - I am running out of time to get more pics done Anyways I hope you enjoy!
  3. Thanks Mario - I like your build too! I love motors as much as PC's so it's always nice to see a Car mod. I liked Ronnie Hara's mod of the Nissan Skyline concept a few years ago too. That too was impressive.
  4. Hi Bill. I have been trying to enquire around to get a professional to take a few pictures but it is just to expensive for me to consider. They charge hundreds of pounds here in the UK for that. All my pictures on the forum have been taken just using an iphone 6. This weekend I am going to use a friends camera to make a video which will be filmed in 1080p of the case with power on and off but it will have no commentary and music in the background. It will be posted by Sunday at the latest as I have blocked this whole weekend out to do this and play GTA V ha! It will have plenty of zoom ins and outs and a full overview but I doubt there will be any more pics. Also sunshine here in the UK has been a problem until this week because there hasn't been any. I will do my best.

  6. Nice work - I wish I had a sponsor though! Mine has cost me an arm and a leg let alone the time. You are very lucky not to have paid for much out of your own pocket.
  7. I will get some more pics up soon and I will be doing a video so you can get a better idea on what it actually looks like!

  9. And now for some of the RGB light effects (I have 4 RGB strips in here)..... [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http://http://s95.photobucket.com/user/Austintacious777/media/Project%20Nebula/IMG_1489_zps8ksec6lg.jpg.html'>
  10. Ok guys. Some pics coming now of the finished build althoug I need to get some professional ons done and I also need to make a video. The Noctuas here are 2 pulling air out of the case and one pushing air into it...

  11. I landed this afternoon from Miami and am sadly working tomorrow and Friday all day but this weekend it will be 100% complete with pics and hopefully a video. The system is running great and scores over 20,000 on firestrike at 1080p
  12. Hi guys. I am pleased to say that my build is fully complete and has been for a few days but I have been very busy with work. The system runs superbly (scoring over 20,000 in 3D mark normal fire strike) although my cards don't seem to overclock massively. The system looks really good with the lighting and everything. Unfortunately pictures and a video will not be complete until next weekend becuase tomorrow I am off to Miami for pleasure and leaving the cold UK behind for 6 days. I promise to have the pics up by next weekedn without fail...possibly sooner.
  13. I stupidly ran my loop only to find out that using inlets as outlets in the mod top would result in absolutely no water movement whatsoever. So after a huge fail and disappointment I had to go back a step and reconfigure all my loop. However after another full days work and a change around, not only does my loop look better, but it's currently leak testing and so far it looks excellent, works fab and can't wait to boot her up now.....here are the pics........ The lines are better and I didn't like the fitting configs coming out the front pump. Now it looks so much cleaner and you can see all the fittings. [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// And now for the colour.......... [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// Let me know if you guys think this is a good colour. I am completely open to a change up if you think something else will look better. I will not use Aurora though. Now some pics below with a UV light on although I am not sold that this looks good. Still undecided whether to have a UV light or not. I am putting some RGB remote control LED's in here though regardless. Obviously purple is the theme [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// More pics of the finished and final build coming this weekend. I am going to try and find a decent camera and get some real good ones taken.
  14. Final stage of the build now. Here is the loop which is now complete inside the case however the tubing at the back still needs to be done... [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// And in goes the front panel.....

  15. Deciding where to hide away the UV LED strip. I am thinking here tucked away on the rad. Just got to figure how to keep it stuck there as double sided tape and the sticky back it comes with is just not enough! [/url]">http:// Bit of a mess down here at the moment but will be fixed up soon... [/url]">http:// I have got to figure out how to keep the tubes coming back in to the case from the rear, remain parallel once they enter the main body of the case and feed into the top of the reservoirs. One needs to be above the other however the way I have the loops configured, its proving to be a nightmare. I will find a work around somehow. [/url]">http:// The tubing inside the case is continuing at a very slow pace as I am sanding every single bit of tubing down so it is perfect with no chance of leaks (touching a massive lump of wood) [/url]">http:// [/url]">http://http://s95.photobucket.com/user/Austintacious777/media/Project%20Nebula/IMG_1222_zpsedqy9rmq.jpg.html'>
  16. You guys sell really good stuff and I like your vids on Youtube too!
  17. Some pics of my WD Velociraptors befire they go in. They come with their own heat sinks (needed at 10,000htz!)... [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// I have now permanently fixed the pumps in now..... [/url]">http:// With absolutely no space in between.... [/url]">http:// The wonky tubing above the top graphics card is obviously unfinished and that's because I am still deciding what to do with it....

  18. Top 360 radiator is mounted and I have started to properly begin tubing up the system witht he short joins first...

  19. I have sourced my custom sleeved wires from a UK supplier who have made these from scratch and these wires are the full length, not extensions. I am still undecided on whether they are too over the top although the colours are nice. I might still just stick with black. What do you guys think?

They are based in Manchester (I think).
  20. Another mountain of fittings arrive ready for this weekends building... [/url]">http:// Barebones inside with side panel... [/url]">http:// Some shots of the fittings....

  21. On for the last phase of the interior artwork. [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// [/url]">http:// I am using 2 Noctua PWM Industrial fans on the bottom 240 rad which I have still not mounted. This is going to fit at the back of the case and exhaust air out of it. I have decided to add 2 seperate Noiseblocker Black Silent Pro fans to my side panel at the front of the case. The reason being, they are dead silent and I much prefer the colour and gloss finish. [/url]">http:// [/url]">http://http://s95.photobucket.com/user/Austintacious777/media/Project%20Nebula/IMG_1157_zps9d682249.jpg.html'> My final parrts arrive this week and I hope to get this build complete by next weekend with more pics.
  22. Good job! Very different and very nice. I like this a lot.
  23. Some of the Bitspower fittings are here but at least double this again is due to arrive but most places in the UK are out of stock for what I need so am having to source the rest from Highflow in Holland. They should be here by next week... [/url]">http:// And now I am trying to get my head around the most complex part of this build which is of course the loop and which fittings to use where. I have sorted out where one of my mini drain valves will be going which is at the bottom coming out of the 240 rad but right now I am f***ed with the CPU and Motherboard loop because I have no way to add a second mini valve for that loop due to lack of room and don't know what to do at this stage. There will be a way but it might not be the best. Below are some pics of me working out what will be best where without tubing or anything actually firmly screwed down.
