I've been meaning to start this thread a looooong time ago, but I'm constantly working on it still. Anyways, take a look at what I've done over the past 9 years to this case, started it in 2008. The case I mean, I've been replacing parts in it ever since then.

Thanks man, to think it started out as a Gigabyte case like yours xD It's far from the same case now though

Gawd dayum that's pornographic. I actually like that the GPU isn't red. The Riing fans must have been such an epic upgrade.

Thanks bud :eek: I also like the fact that the GPU breaks the colour, I just wish I had a decent camera to have a photoshoot with :p They definitely were, I had a smartie box of fans before xD

Haha it still is :eek: Cable management was not thought of back in the day, that's where the grinder, jigsaw and new panels came into play :p

I'll keep updating the thread with pics and such as I go on, I want to change the tubing run from the motherboard into the res, it just hurts my OCD too much. I'll also try find the time to take better pictures

What would the possibility be of you wiring in some red LED's in between the ram slots ? (i know there are trident z ram doodles with lightbars but i dont know if you can make it one solid colour ?

I've never actually had that idea, I've got a crap load of RGB LED strip at home, I may just try it. I'll just have to find a way of doing it that will hide the wiring. A nice thing is there's an RGB header right next to the RAM slots so shouldn't be too much of a mission actually. And then they can be in sync with my mobo LED's :D

I think that would look amazeballs - Did you set your fans to static red or pulse ?

I'll definitely give it a try, thanks for the idea ;) They're on static, mine are actually Jonsbo Eclipse fans not Riings :)
