    Hi guys,*

    Long time between drinks, I'm still around still doing mods, just have way less time to be online these days.

    Just thought I would share with you the wild ride of a week of afternoons putting together a build for Inwin. It was for a media event here in Aus, so time was a little tight (when isnt it).*

    Everything i did along the way was out of order.*
    Having to wire the entire build, before putting covers in, and then having the water lines over that meant the process was a little, interesting....

    A big thank you to Asus, EK Waterblocks and Inwin for the support

    It all began with a covered box and a guessing game

    Playing with different mounting options, sadly this didnt fit :(
    [​IMG]

    More fitment testing
    [​IMG]

    Can i fit these here, yes!!!

    Playing with mounting and clearances, mod required

    Potential solution
    [​IMG]

    MB Tray in place
    [​IMG]

    MB tray and midplate in place, begin toying with tubing
    [​IMG]

    To cover the midplate or not
    [​IMG]

    Prepping for a photo to digitise the pattern on top cover, this will make sense soon

    Playing with rear cover concept

    Rear cover test fit
