It's only like 40% done, I haven't even finished the bottom cooler, let alone start the top one.

From memory, the entire cooling tower was slanted, and had 2-3 levels. Or maybe that's just me ?

Ohhh that's Heavy Rain. I bought 3/8" aluminum plating for it, and frankly it weighs over 200lbs right now, and I still need to get the proper tools to machine it. This is more of an in between project. I'm hoping Heavy Rain can be sponsored though sometime this winter or next summer.

Note: I edited the previous update to include comments. I'm trying to manage sleep and work and this, and sometimes I barely have the energy to upload. Plus recently I've been working with cutting other types of plastics, and I managed to find one that when cut with my table saw, releases fumes, which I eventually started wearing a respirator for, but not before I started to get really dizzy confused. But I'm ok now. I think thumb.gif

I wonder what's going here.............

**Select** **DELETE**......the side panel. Obviously still need to finish dremeling a lot. But the bottom cooler is now officially mounted to the case frame. The only thing left to build for the inside of the case is the bottom reservoir that goes between the drive bay and the power supply. Those water channels I mentioned in my last update allow water to flow from the cooler to the reservoir with very little resistance. I redesigned the cooler to have the fan at the top, and a panel that goes down almost to the bottom of the cooler and separates the fan side from the falling water side of the cooler, where it pushes air out from there.This lets me fill the coolers up SIGNIFICANTLY more than Project Rainfall, achieve a better heat capacity, and with the new flow designs for bot coolers, hopefully an equal if not higher cooling performance in a fraction of the size Project Rainfall's were.

I felt so bad cutting this part out. It was one of my favorite parts of the case.

As far as I know you've been one of my biggest supporters thumb.gif

Ohh you've made an even bigger window than I thought you would! Looks good though. Are you going to finish the edges with some trim or just polish and put glass/acrylic over on the outside, like on Silverstone FT/RV02? I think it'd look cool with a black rubber grommet-like edging, the way it is on Corsair 600T SE.

P.S.: NZXT 2-meter white or blue LED strips would look cool here. I just got one on a good sale from Directron.

I have some white trim i'm going tobuse around the edges. The polycarbonate panel os going to be mounted to the backside of the panel afterwards.

Im all set on lighting. I have always designed and soldered my own lighting systems

Of course it's getting cleaned up. cleanly cutting a window that large is not that easy though...
