    So itís been a while since the last update guys and I am sorry about that, but having a 2 year old and cold days when work is done in a shed has put a brake on things.

    The engraving is coming along very nicely and we are nearly at the end of side one here is some work.


    I know itís been taking a while but dots have gone crazy and has took a lot longer than anticipated, for example here are some close ups to show this.



    As you can see there is not one line in the engraving part of the project, its all dots.

    On another note let us take a look at a care package from bitspower that turned up.


    Yes you can see correctly, thatís four gpu water blocks, two cpu blocks, two hex tanks, two mod kits, every fitting you could ever possibly need and a special package

    Also I thought as the SSDís would look out of place with something that is samurai, I thought I would make some sort of samurai armour for them, so this is the design.


    I actually stacked it like armour so its flexible to curve (even though it will never need too, I just liked the idea of doing it this way) I have also used leather lace to connect them to insure they stay connect, probably going to be a pain to line up straight to stick onto the SSDís, but hey I like it, this is also the design I am going to go with for the GPU blocks as well.

    Stay tuned, I will be also adding some more pics in the coming weeks of doing the GPU blocks and moving onto over aspects of the build why engraving is going on.

    Hi all sorry about delays in posting, did not get round to the GPU blocks as I need to take them apart when addressable RGB strips come in and replace the current non addressable ones.

    On another note though side one of the etching has been complete and is looking like a piece of art to me. I defo think this build is going to cross over between mod and artwork.





    I love this and canít wait until this starts coming together, the theme is coming out amazing, leather is on route from Italy for monitors, some internal stuff and keyboards and mice so, looking forward to starting that. More as soon as it happens guys.

    So another small update with some pieces done for the build, the end is in sight and should be complete by end of aug so not long to go for hardware porn side of things. In this update, ill be showing you some of the right side of engraving, picture being used and memory customization.

    First up from previous post you saw side one completed, side two has now started.




    This will progress a lot faster than other side due to the fact the little one will be going to day nursery in a couple of weeks freeing up more time.

    Onto the next part of the project, the memory, we all know its very rare to get memory to suit your build and as one side of this build is black with gold highlights and white/silver with black highlights, so I had to do this to the TeamGroup Dark kits.



    Yes that is 24 sections of the heat spreaders, which funny enough were attached with 4 screws and 4 nuts each to the main heat spreaders.



    Yes so in total I had to take undo 96 nuts with screws this tiny and try not to lose any, Yes it was fun and just as fun as its going to be putting them back on :p



    So just gold for 8 of the sticks, and then black for the other 4 and with one side being white/silver I had to do the 4 main sections of the spreaders in white too.



    I love the way these came out and suppose most of you can realise why I wanted these kits over other choices I had as the gold and black sections of spreaders, almost loosely resemble the sort of helmet decorations that samurai had.

    Also why doing all this another idea cropped into my head and I done a proof print to see what you guys think of the idea, having one of the tube runs look like this.



    What do you guys think of the idea, yay or no, would be making this out of acrylic though to give a clean sharper look to it.

    The only other thing I did as well was this



    Yes that is a razer keyboard with white leather, more to follow soon as I try to make sure it looks perfect.

    Wow itís been super-hot lately, but excitement is boiling over as we get to a stage were the etching is getting closer and closer to completed on the other side of the desk. Iíll just leave you with these pics.






    I have to say as well as my wife and boy I am in love with something not human its officially gone crazy, but super stoked and pleased with how the design I made is coming out.

    Also had time to play with some things and just lay down samurai armour style covers over the gpu blocks to get a feel for them, these will be cleaned and polished and put on gpuís for all 4 cards (2 one side and two the other).



    I reckon its going to look lush once done, let just get a move on and in the coming weeks I will be starting internals ect with the engraving so close to being done.

    chears, this 100% beats the BF3 engraving that was done in bf3.3 mod. I am grinding teeth now itching to start the inner build and get cracking.
