Hi guys,

Here's most of the piping done!

One issue I had with this is that two of the pass through fittings were way too close to each other and I only had Bitspower C47 style fittings that were a bit too large. So I ended up hand filing them down.

This was the result:





Just shaved off a few mm and they fit perfectly with a bit of tubing between them.

They're the ones at the very bottom.







Mounted the RGB LED controller for the Corsair fans in the front as well. This will be accessible from the side even with the front panel on.



And here's a look at the cable management.



And now the inside.



The red chrome tubes, with the fittings in the middle is a reference to the dual lightsaber.















Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

These were the final photos I took before getting all the panels on and finishing the build





















As you can see, I went with black coolant and I also have a few red cold cathodes in there just for some more lightsaber references

Stay tuned for final pics!

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

Here are the final photos! I hope you like it, I'm really happy with this one!

The only thing that might need to be changed or improved is the light behind the Darth Maul face on the front panel. The white acrylic would need to be changed to opal and get some better lighting in there so that the front panel pops nicely in the dark.

I'd like to say a huge thanks to the companies that helped me bring this project to life!













Here we go! I'll start with the outside first!























And here's the inside!







































Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for a video once I get back from COMPUTEX!

Cheers,

Alex

the scratched up side cover looks awesome, just think its a bit over done everywhere else and looks a bit more snow camo then space battle
