    subbed, nice copper work! cant wait to see it unfold.

    pro tip - you could've reserved a couple of the first posts so that your worklog can be stuffed into them at the top. :thumbup:

    Hi everyone, here is a quick update on what i have done today.


    So i decided to cut up the front panel of the fractal define S :leet:

    Here is a nice photo frame :)

    Now im going to share my thoughts on what i am going to do with this, i was thinking of using some white perspex to cover the front hole that i have created today. once i do that i would like to add some Thermaltake blue led ring fans on the inside of the front panel where i will mount the radiator.

    [​IMG]

    now im hoping that this will give a nice blue glow through the white perspex :) please let me know your thoughts on this mod!

    ill be back :)

    I'm excited to see Klevv finally available here. It's really great looking memory.

    Edit: Those SSD's you added look great too. Why do other brands have such a hard time making stuff that doesn't look like kits toys or cheap garbage

    Here is a quick update on how the KLEVV Cras DDR4 looks like when its in a system.

    These KLEVV cras memory modules are all metal construction, and huge. I would defiantly say that these are some of the best modules on the market up their with the big brands such as Corsair Dominator Platinum's.
