Whoops. I forgot to turn the Troubleshooting LEDs back off after playing around with some memory overclocking. I keep covers over all the other non-controllable ones but leave those uncovered. I also forgot to turn back on the Green LEDs on the LL fans so use your imagination. They are the same color usually as the Corsair Logo.

Little cover over the Power LEDs on the Vega 64. I thought I had done a better job of cleaning before these pictures but it was clearly not sufficient for the detail retrieval of the lens/camera.
I'm on the 4th mini USB cable for the LL fan controller and the second hub. After this last time, I kind of gave up on cable management but it's still not terrible. I'll fix it all on the next hardware update and swap the Cablemod SATA and Molex cables out for my own custom ones to match my others.

This is one of my early case mods with a full custom loop. It's been my HTPC for nearly 5 years. The only hardware changes were that I swapped in the Vega 64 when it was released instead of the GTX 1080 it was originally built with. I also swapped in the LL fans from the SPs. I did several things for the first time in this build that are now mostly standard practice now. This was the first build I painted tubing. The tubing and reservoir are a frosted silver and blue pearl. The reservoir is mounted on a custom mount using thumbscrews. The PSU shroud is removable and has cutouts barely large enough for the cables but still easy enough to route. The sides of the fans are covered with bent aluminum flat bar. The back of all the tempered glass pieces have been painted black. The primary side and front panels have been essentially silk screened to maintain transparency but match the aesthetic. There isn't a single piece in this build that hasn't been modified in some way.
I'm in the process of relaunching my site so I'm getting better shots of all of the builds I can, including my own personal builds, considering, well, I'm my own customer right? I will be posting them all here whenever I have time.
