    Hey guys, so its been a long time coming..

    Ive been a guest user spying from afar for a few months now and only just registered a few days ago.

    With great deliberation ive now got the funds to properly start my case on its "rags to ritches bitches".. or something like that..

    First thing i should mention is "YES THIS IS ANOTHER TJ07", please stfu and gtfo if you dont like the fact that another person has one.

    It started last weekend with me stripping down my computer from the beastly case that it is, and putting all my hardware into a temp case, CM690 II Advanced. (pictures to come)

    Over the last few days ive spent approx $1100 on stuff to get me started, im not sure if ive been ripped off or whatnot, though i think ive done the right thing. Im not new to pc's, nor am i new to the performance game. Just never spent so much money on accessories before :p

    Here is a list of what i have purchased over the last couple of days, please keep in mind that my thought patern was to buy anything that i need to drill or cut or measure for, so that i can do all that then get the innards powder coated.

    From PCCG:

    1 EK Reservoir holders (2 pack) $5.90
    1 Bitspower Dual D5 Mod Top - Black Acetal $116.00
    1 XSPC RX480 Radiator $165.00
    2 Laing D5 12V Variable Speed Pump $258.00
    4 Noiseblocker 120mm BlackSilentPRO PL2 Ultra Quiet Fan $88.00

    From ChilledPC:

    1 x Chilled PC TJ07 Midplate - Brushed Aluminium (TJ07MPC) = £8.50
    1 x Pulse Modding Quad Radiator Bracket/Stand (480) () = £11.91

    From TKR:
    15x Primoflex Black 1/2ID 3/4OD (PFLEXP34BK) $48.75

    From MDPC-X:
    About $200 bucks from MDPC-X worth of cable sleeving and whatnot..

    From JustTools:
    1X Dremel 300 Series MultiPro Rotary Tool Kit + 30 Accs. + Flex Shaft. 300-2/30 KIT

    So just waiting for a few deliveries to come in and ill prob start next weekend.
    Would love to start this weekend but im heading to Sydney for Defqon1 :D

    Like the color scheme mate, should look nice, so long as you get the alloy adonised properly, or are you planning on paint?

    This project is a bit like twilight zone for me lol, im picking up my TJ07 this weekend hopefully (2nd hand of this forum, 250 bucks, gonna be awesome) to replace my old faithful CM690 (they just dont have the 100% right layout room for water cooling).

    I will keeping an eye on this as you'll probs have some ideas that im gonna ninja the fuck out of :lol:

    GL mate!!!

    an issue that i would face with anodizing would be that im having custom acrylic cut for the front bays not unlike wookiie's. so im not sure how to deal with the 2 different materials being the same colour/finish..

    it did thanks heaps for that mate :)

    have a small issue where the top window is about a 1-2mm too long, though im fairly sure its just the lip on the case thats stopping it, nothing a dremel wont fix :)

    gonna order some of the fittings this week too, so more work will get done this sunday :p

    sorry should have explained myself a bit better :)

    these fittings are for the rad, pump, res and the mid plate fittings.

    i have not purchased any fittings for any heatsinks yet.
