Even under full load it's very quiet. I also tried something the other night that I really like, and I think will be a long-term addition to the project if all goes well. Will have an update on that tonight.

Congratulations on the recognition! It's definitely an article-worthy build. Can't wait for the finished side window!

Thanks! I have no idea if/when I will be finishing the side panel. With school I really don't have time to do it frown.gif

WOW i followed your last build and the begininning of this one for a while. Haven't been around in a while but again WOW. I'm a case mod enthusiast.. I've probably viewed all of the ones worth seeing (hours and hours of galleries tongue.gif) Sir this is my favorite case mod to date of the hundreds i've seen. When I finally get the appropriate funds and tools together to do mine your builds will be in the back of my mind, it certainly has influenced me. Congrats on a job well done! I look forward to your future endeavors and im also curious as to where you go to school? As i'm at Drexel University myself. Parting question though, how well has the steel wool been working as opposed to cloth or other materials? It's an awesome idea but still slightly worries me as i've seen stainless steel oxidize before.. Good luck with it! Don't be a stranger to the forums... Ever! You've already done so much for this community and I.

P.S. I actually saw the finished build on Bit Tech first thumb.gif

Thanks! I really appreciate it. It's not 100% done, but it's getting there. School interferes with a lot of things. Or I should say a lot of things interfere with school thumb.gif I'm currently at Umass Dartmouth for electrical engineering and I'm probably going to minor in mechanical engineering. The steel wool has been working great. Other materials such as cloth etc. all collect lots of the impurities in the water, but the stainless steel wool doesn't and thus has none of those maintenance issues the cloth did. I know stainless steel can oxidize, but in all honesty, I don't plan on using this computer for more than a year. My next build I'm working on designing will be using water chilling, a bigger case, and a good amount of sound deadening.

I added blue dye to the water. I've been testing this for about two weeks, and the dye does not evaporate with the water. So as long as the water level is maintained, The color of the water does not change. I also did the sleeving on the PSU over again. The heat shrink job I did on the wires looked like crap, so instead I used the method I used for Project Rainfall.

I love the blue "stripe" of the water column and the frosted looking water tubes. The pale blue is a good touch! Looks better every time!

You could do a side window to only show the reservoir(s) or one to block the bottom section under the motherboard with the door, and the rest basically be a huge transparent window. I personally feel like just showing the reservoir and evaporative chamber would be more coherent with the theme, but I'm sure you've got lots of ideas.
