    After done up my drawing for the hex radiator grill, I sent them for cutting. Cut 2 pc of them with two different sizes of hex. When place 2 pc of different hex sized of holes together it will create a contrast between two of them.

    Been busy for the past week with my fan grills, light box and also the top chamber side panel for my 5 X Poweradjusts 2.

    I am glad to announce the completion of all of the stuffs above.

    I had been busy for the past weekend creating new cables for my Aquabus, resleeving the 3pin fan extension cables, USB cables and custom myself a new PSU molex extension cables for my 5.25 devices (2 X Aquaero 5 and 1 X optical drive / Lamptron Touch)

    I had also bought lots of stuff from Tao Bao and had received partial of the $300 SGD shipment which includes lots of modding stuffs.

    Since right now both my Aquaero 5 has blocks for them, it will bring a total of 9 waterblocks in this loop.

    I also had bought a Aquaero Flow Sensor to monitor my flow rate.

    With the increment of components, I will have to plan my loop again which I had done up the planned loop. I am planning to install the Flow Sensor either at the top chamber or at the back panel.

    Updated Loop Order

    Tonight came back early so decided to mount some stuffs....

    Had been drawing plans, measuring, planning and laser cutting stuffs for the past two weeks. I had completed the following items.

    - Lightbox
    - Side Panel
    - Poweradjust mounting panel
    - 2 X Gloss Black 360 Rad Grill
    - 2 X Barley White 360 Rad Grill
    - ASUS ROG Logo (Had yet to plan where to mount it yet)


    Beside the laser cutting, I had also spent my last weekend sleeving the Poweradjusts Aquabus cables and DIY my own molex extension cables. I had also decided to change the color of my sleeves to all white.

    For lighting, I had prepared the following.

    Dual 5mm White LED w 70cm Cables - 2pc
    Dual 3mm White LED w 70cm Cable - 1pc
    Dual 3mm Red LED w 30cm Cable - 3pc

    RGB LED Strip 2M - 1pc
    White LED Strip 1M - 2pc
    White LED Strip 1.5M - 1pc

    I will be using the white LED bulbs (5mm and 3mm) for my Bitspower D5 pump tops and also my EK CPU block.

    Lightbox - either the 1.5M White LED (Installed) or the 2M RGB LED

    Case Interior (Btm Chamber/Top Chamber) - 1M White LED Strip.

    I am trying to keep the casing with all white LED with little accent of red.

    Wish to have the coolant (Pastel Red) to be the focus and create the contrast with the surrounding.

    Was kind of busy this weekend, so just manage to did some custom length cables for my SSDs.

    Custom length Seasonic SATA power cables.


    I dropped by Sim Lim Tower yesterday evening after work, wanted to just get 10m of 18AWG cables. In the end, I toyed the idea of soldering stuffs. So I bought a cheap soldering iron and some flux. Went home and tryout soldering. Gosh... It is so easy to solder.

    Since right now, I have the tools for soldering. I will try splicing my 120mm radiator fans. this will ensure that cables will be routed and managed nicely within the rig. Will try to do 3 X 120mm 3pin > Single 3 Pin to be routed to the Poweradjusts. This means that those 6 XModmytoys Fans Distrubution PCBs and Swiftech PWN 8 X 3pin I had bought will be wasted.... I think I might just use the Fan Distribution PCB to connect all of my LEDs to them instead.

    Today went over to Sim Lim Tower to get my 2 metre of RGB LED to be spilt into 1.5m and 50cm respectively. Could have done it myself but since I just learnt soldering for only 2 days so decided not to take the risk of ruining my new LED strips.

    I also removed my current Aquaero 5 Pro and 2 X Poweradjusts 2 from my current rig. Installed waterblock onto the Aquaero 5

    Aquaero 5 Pro with waterblock installed


    I also gotten news that my radiator had arrived. Since it had arrive which also means I am ready to go on full throttle on the build.

    Today, my wife received a mail from Taiwan. Kingston is officially sponsoring me a SSD for my current build Project Rampage II.

    As I am not at home to receive the package, my daughter shall have the honor to help her daddy to open the package.

    Sadly that I am still at work when the package arrive, I will have to wait till I get home tonight then I could checkout on the SSD itself.

    Currently I have the following SSDs.

    Kingston HyperX 3K 120GB
    ADATA XPG SX900 128GB
    OCZ Vector 128GB


    In terms for outlook wise, I love the stealthy look of HyperX 3K, I will be able to test the performance of this new addition after my rig is up. For now lets view the pictures.
