Ok so I got a review sample bench from Primochill (look for the review on PureOC soon) and I'm going to mod it a bit :D

First off thanks to Performance-PCs.com and White Light Laser for sponsoring me with some goodies to make the bench unique.




Along with my parts order Performance-PCs hooked me up with some 300mm Bitfenix Alchemy Connect LED strips (in orange of course) for the bench. I also picked up a pair of XSPC temp gauges - one air and one liquid - as well as a Bitfenix pump top, XSPC Raystorm CPU block, Orange LEDs for the CPU block, UV LEDs for the pump top and some Primochill UV Brite Orange dye.


I also picked up some orange and black paracord to sleeve the Thermaltake 1000W PSU I'll be using with the bench.




I mounted the LED strips under the motherboard. The top one had to go at a slight angle due to the cutout.


And a shot of it all lit up. The glow on the left is from the UV LED's on the pump top.

Until the review is up here's a teaser:


Until next time :D

Small update - I got the Tt PSU sleeved today. Well at least the 24-pin and the 8-pin, I still need to do the PCI-E cables. The orange matches nicely :D

Thanks guys! I'm loving working with paracord as well - it's so easy compared to plastic sleeving

Ok update time!




I got the pair of 6-pin PCI-E cables sleeved






Then I added the UV green dogbones from White Light Laser. After this however I upgraded the test system GPU to a 7970 which requires a 6-pin and an 8-pin, so I'm going to have to remove the dogbones unfortunately.






Then I cut into the top panel of my bench. These are rough cuts from the scroll saw.




And after some Dremeling and filing I got the two XSPC temp gauges mounted.




The right side gauge is for ambient temps so I used some cable routing mounts to tie the cable up. The left sid eone is for liquid temp and terminates in a G-1/4" threaded plug to plug into the system somewhere.




Here's both temp sensors mounted.






And of course I got orange ones to match the bench.

That's all for now!

Nice work! I really like the cable sleeving. Sleeving is something I always talk about doing, but haven't attempted myself. The temp gauges are a nice touch as well. I'm looking forward to seeing the build complete, sure it will be awesome.

I kill CPU's

Thanks man! I've done sleeving in the past with cheapo stuff and MDPC stuff but this was one of my first times using paracord and I love it! The build will never really be COMPLETE so to speak as I'm doing all my review stuff with it lol. I've actually got an XAPC Photon 360 kit coming that I'll use with the bench
