    Final assembly has begun !




    To help prevent damaging all my hard work painting , I had an idea to find some cheap plastic washers to prevent metal to metal contact. A little glue will help keep washers on.




    Oh yeah, it looks good already! Second try paint job came out a lot better

    Great thing about the HAF XB EVO chassis upgrade is I can install my 3.5'' data drive now in the same cage with the SSD . And whats more awesome is I can put my Antec silicon gromments down and my HDD sits perfectly in between and no HDD vibration into the case chassis but it still stays put, awesomesauce!

    Well I had a bit of a set back last week due to a very old and not seen in a very, very long time. Burning electronics and smoke. Yeah....



    I was attempting to redo the wiring on my LED wiring to splice into an existing molex connecter because from day one, I had power connection issues with my NZXT LED wiring. I actually did a pretty nice job I thought cutting, twisting, soldering and then heatsinking a new spliced connection into one molex connector. It looked proffessional and I was pretty proud of myself. Until I turned on the power.....

    After just a few short minutes with the LED's I noticed this sorta "mist" around the LED"s and im like "Huh....thats odd..." And THEN I smelled the wonderful trademarked of VERY hot resistor and silicon burning ... OOOHH SHEEEET!!!!!


    Needless to say, my wiring did SOMETHING that Mr Electrons didnt' like and my NZXT lighting system was now toast. Sigh....another web order placed, its just money, right?

    Well once I finally got my replacement, I was pleasantly surprised that NZXT had done some "Upgrading" to the main PCB board and components. To say it looks rather.... empty is an understatement.








    With the lighting now fixed/upgraded, I could finally start wrapping this up.



    A perfect fit with no vibration into the case chassis thanks to my 10 year old Antec silicon grommets with a new purpose in life







    Dat looks freakin sexy now, no?

    Very clean build so far! Like the choice of colors as each helps the other to pop!
