Really nice build man, nice to see some other cooling solutions other then the normal things. Very innovative and original.

PS. Liked your volvo as well and your swedish flag. thumb.gif

Scrap silicone so far. I'm removing and cleaning all the plastic in this build. Tomorrow, when I get in the polycarbonate polishing kit, I will make everything crystal clear.

I figured out a way to prevent light from shining though the plastic. It was super easy. I simply spray painted the backside black.

Light leak FTW. That's why I got the black version, well partially, I had a red theme to begin with and black/red is much easier to start working with than blue/white. Also HOLY CRAP the 9000 is a just massive case. I need more fans to add to my radiator and to decide on what the heck to do to the door. (Kinda why I am looking at your build I wanna see what you do for the door)

you got some mad skills! Great mod! I don't know about acrylic glue but for plexi you can get glue thats more or less invisble. Also for the edges you might be able to flame polish them thumb.gif

Thanks! Congrats on MOTM btw. Acrylic Glue...maybe? I've never used it. The silicone is thick and allows a very good seal. It's also removable which is a must. Polycarbonate unfortunately burns when you try to flame polish it frown.gif

Forgot to mention something new I'm doing. I got a small fish tank pump, and I'm using it to add air into the water line going to the vertical water channel. It gives a really cool bubble effect and allows you to see the water flowing up to the top cooler. Keep in mind I'm not the first moron to add air into their water loop, This loop is a open loop, and air is being added post pump and post flow meter. The air is no longer part of the loop after the water reaches the top cooler. Basically, it does not add nor subtract any performance of the cooler.

Thanks!

I love getting away from the norm. Plus I love the fact that I have the only one biggrin.gif

I plan to move to Sweden in a couple years. And I'm not even Swedish lol.
