Your fab skills are epic, so many of your parts look straight up laser cut to me. Hope you've been making progress!
Thanks very much
I wish did have a laser cutter or CNC or something ha
I've been making a little bit of progress

Ok so while I've been hard at work finishing of my last year of uni I've managed to slip a bit of work in on the build. Not that much, some minor mods and tubing.
My PSU was all beat up from the number of times I've taken this build apart so I destickered and resprayed it.
And I'm also going commando on the grille too
Done all the tubing for the top compartment now, just the little tube in the top left is a PITA to make and it's a bit lumpy and weird so I'll be doing that again.
You may notice my new res in there too. That's made up of an EK medium tube and two single port white acetal end caps. You may also notice the plexi holder that I made for it
You'll maybe remember a while ago I showered all of my components. Well I finally got round to testing them and it seems that they came through unscathed, the FF means fully functional
I've also managed to pick up a second gtx580 so I'll be going SLI for the first time since my 2x 8800GT setup years ago
Only problem is that I can't find a white top and black backplate for the second block I'll need
I've asked EK and got a no from them both about stock levels and a custom order, so it looks like I'll have to have a go making my own matching tops and backplates then
