LOL - though in my defence i will say if you look at carbonite or other local modding sites you will see that all the lights, fans and add ons are becoming a universal thing - well either that or its only charous buying PC's nowadays :P :wink:

As promised here are some progression pics over the course of this year.
You will see where i started from on page one of this thread, iv since then modded an new side panel and lots of new panels internally to house fans and hide cables :)

Image

Image

Image

I was running the rampage 3 there with the Zalman cooler i haven't had a chance to take better pics of the upgrade but here are some mobile shots excuse the image quality

This was First boot so excuse the screws, Skew Panels and CD-Rom Sticking out the front

Running the following now:

Rampage maximus 3
i7 3770K @ 4.5GHZ
Corsair H100
Corsair dominator platinum 8gb
MSI GTX 780
Corsair 750TX
Corsair Force 3 256GB SSD
All in the good old CM690II Advanced

Just need to get some sleeving on those ugly cables!

Wow Jelly. Just wow.

*check the first page*
Is that the same case?
*check again*
Yes it is! Those ROG inserts make the WORLD of difference! Did you make them yourself?

I think those white cables actually look quite nice as I they compliment the black and the carbon-fibre-looking black texture. The white blades of the RAM cooler too. Is the angled thing covering/hiding your extra PCIe slots just a bent piece of metal/plastic with more carbon-fibre looking texture?

Man, seriously, I am very impressed. That's a beautiful build.

Hey gdi-lord thanks man means a lot! Yes I designed and had all the panels laser cut and bent from steel. I work in the print industry so I have access to vinyls and printers so I did the rog stickers at work.
The white fans used to be black i stripped out all my fans and resprayed everything white.
And yes the plastic cover is covering my extra pci slots it's bare for now but I might be mounting my ssd on to it or adding more subtle decals. I have also modded the cdrom so that it blends in with the mesh on the front of the case and also made my own fan grills and holders.
If you want to see the work I put into it I can post a few pics I have of the progress leading up to it.

It's always nice to see when someone puts a lot of effort into their builds.
Would love to see the progression pics as well :)

Morning Mike! Thanks alot dude! And yes a lot of effort went into this! PC was down for just over a month.
here are the pics :

Google sketchup design:
Image

Steel once it arrived: The fans were stripped and sprayed white:
Image

somemore fans I sprayed. I kept them in the packaging and they looked as though I bought them white:) The pic with the cooler was the replacement fan mod I had to do to as the zalman cooler came with a blue fan. So i bought that pwm red fan and used a dremel to cut the back side to shape and fit it onto the cooler, I also had to cut groves in the back to house the cable:
Image

I used a small engraving machine at work as a CNC router to cut the zalman fan grills and my badge for the side window:
Image

The engraver was also used to cut clear plexi-glass off cuts from the side panel to house a fan inside the case above the CD-ROM to bring extra airflow through the CPU area:
Image
Image

Ram cooler:
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
A clear vinyl was used to get the original stickers to sit flat again, as you will see in the image above they were wanting to lift.

The piece of ABS plastic I bent and wrapped in carbon to hide all the nasty wires on the bottom of the board for the Case audio,USB, Power switches and the likes. As explained earlier the plate is bare for now but i will be adding something to it in the near future:
Image

The below photo shows the installation of the plate, please ignore how skew its sitting I had not yet fixed it on the right hand side. The same image also shows where I mounted the top right fan housing I made for the extra airflow. This was still on my rampage 3 board:

Hope you like em!

I sure am dude. I'v always wanted to mod and I was so fortunate to land in the print industry giving me the access to the equipment and the know how. I'm still very new at it and I have a lot to learn as this was my first mod. But i'v enjoyed it throughly!
Thanks for all your kind words man!
