Really nice build man. I think the Mpower looks better than the first board too. Also interested in how the RMA went, I've never had to send anything back to BIOSTAR, did you have any troubles? Wish I had the patience to finish sleeving, have had a PSU half done now for a couple years now ;) Great job and awesome write up.

 Plus I've always considered yellow to be the most waterproof color, so you're good in case of leaks  :P

love this build man, great work, what about adding a few drops of white additive to make the yellow pop more :D

just a thought

love the board, and how did the replacement of the other board go?

-Soul

Thanks :)

White additive? do you mean Dye ? I only have white Mayhem coolant which I can add this weekend if that's what you mean?

Yeah, the msi is all black and sexy yellow!! I forgot about the BIOSTAR board lol, I just started another project and it's taking most my time. I submitted the RMA for the Biostar 15 mins ago lol

It does look awesome but it's also double the price :/

I just submitted the RMA request 15 mins ago lol I'll let you know how it goes

Yeah tell me about it, it's the most time consuming and finger abusing part of the build lol

I didn't understand the correlation between yellow and leaking :P

Yah I think if you put some white dye in there with the yellow it would make the yellow more solid and pop more.

Just a thought

hope the rma goes well and looking forward to the next build

I don't have any white dye, but send me some and I'll throw it in :P

They still haven't responded to my RMA request, talk about slow service.... I submitted a RMA request to EVGA 2 hours ago and the responded 30mins ago, it's my first RMA with EVGA and damn I'm impressed so far :)

They're coming next weekend, I've got an exam tomorrow so I couldn't do anything this weekend.

Took the system to a gaming event to check how well it performs, no need to mention that it was the ONLY system that stood out :)

Had people stopping and taking pictures along with a COMPANY that builds computers come and talk to me about the sleeving, the paint, the colors of the system, they wanted to offer a NZXT Hue as a free gift for the best looking system at the event, I simply took out the remote and clicked flash on the RGB remote control, the guy laughed and took pictures :)

flashing RGB anyone?
 :)






The Front



Does it stand out?



The whole setup (sort of)



The Side



Flash on to show off internal components

 Thanks!! :)

BIOSTAR hasn't replied to me till now, guess that's one brand I will never buy again

oh, one suggestion for the site is make automatically re-size pictures to fit your screen

Will do, I don't have my hopes up though, it's been two weeks with no response, I'll submit another RMA request again tomorrow and see what happens.

Nope, nothing yet. It's the weekend, but if they don't respond to my second RMA request by Tuesday, there's going to be some yelling over the phone with forums flooding  ::)

Thanks! Looking forward for yours though you should TAKE SOME PICTURES WITH YOUR OWN DSLR  ;D
