Thanks seeker. I'd give you a cookie but you're in Texas, so some rep will have to do.

Update for everyone. It's getting tight in here. I've had to rethink a few plans thanks to getting some measurements wrong. Configuring this res to work with a passthrough fitting directly below it might be difficult, it looks like there's enough clearance to pull it off.. just. I'll have to remove the top cap to fill up and the main concern is getting it back on again after.

I did about 75% of the tubing today. I can't do the rest until I drill out the midplate for the pass throughs anyway. Here's some pics:











Here's the main problem area. Where the fitting meets the midplate is where the passthrough will be. This clearance leaves about 5mm between the top of the res and the radiator... it's gonna be a really tight fit. Let's hope I don't have to order a smaller res QQ.



Edit: ah, I decided not to go with the matte black Tygon. I thought the primochill stuff matched up with the fittings and gave the whole thing a cleaner feel.

Stuff left to do:
  • Drill midplate for 2 pass through fittings.
  • Cut a gap behind the motherboard tray for cable management.
  • Make acrylic red illuminated panel to backlight the laser cut design.
  • Install a few hidden white LED's for general case lighting
  • Fill and fire her up.

Here's the plan for the cable gap. Seems like cutting out this chunk would be the best option but if anyone has any better ideas throw them out there please!

I cut mine out too. It's a little difficult to see but it's at the bottom of the pic.

Aye, I think that's the way to go. I just masked off and measured up everything that needs cutting or drilling. Will be getting the dremel and step bit out tomorrow.

And thanks marduch

Long day, must have 7 hours working on this today so here's an update:

First up, some random pics of the screws I painted compared to some already black ones from MDCP-X. Took these as someone requested it






Taped up the stock midplate ready for mutilation. I cut a section out that was blocking the pass through fittings as well as a chunk of the back for cable management.



Looks messy!



Masking tape off, let's see..



Still messy! A bit of a sand, a file, and some touch up paint..
