Any details on your lighting system? LEDs? Cathodes?

LEDs controllable via software?

And yeah, I would wet sand with a 1600-2000 grit sandpaper.

LED's will be controllable via USB and part of my water level management software/hardware.

I suppose I might as well just call this all a nightly update type thing. Here's tonight's:

Got the reservoir built today. It's all sealed up and holds water perfectly fine. I have two quick connect fittings on the bottom so it can be filled without any hoses attached.

You can see the water channel going from the cooler to the reservoir here:

008.jpg

009.jpg


Yeah. That's a sick front end. Need to make a bezel that transitions from the white border to the cooler better.

010.jpg

Can see through it.... I made this cooler fit in the are the original 5.25" drive bays took, so that way I can continue to use all the motherboard securing measures.

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.

I'm thinking about using fans in the top like this to help vent some of the case air. I would need to take the top cooler and raise it on stand-offs though, which would make the task of mating the output of the top cooler to the input of the bottom cooler even more difficult.

005.jpg

Started to build the top cooler. I wanted to at least have the side walls and the drainage deck built. I took these parts from Project Rainfall, as those 1/2" polycarbonate panels were expensive.

006.jpg

Yup. That's water in there all right. I got carried away though and had a couple leaks going between the vertical section and the horizontal panel. Anyways, upon seeing these leaks, I over reacted and tried dumping out all the water, most of which made it's way cleanly onto the floor. doh.gif

Ok, my lense's AF is fubar. Time to stop being lazy and use manual focus like I should.

011.jpg

Mmmmmmmm Top cooler.......

012.jpg

Top fans.........

013.jpg

I need to figure out a way to fill in the gap between the plastic and the metal panel and the cooler.

reservoir. It's just hangin out. See what I mean about those fittings?!

019.jpg

Bottom cooler and divider panel supports:

022.jpg

Water channel that failed me, and managed to leak. I did only quickly moun these parts together, and everything still needs to be taken apart and polished before the final assembly so everything is crystal clear. The horizontal divider panel however will be painted gloss white, which is why it's sanded down.

023.jpg

Oh, and I suppose I DO have some surprises coming.

I'm on a business trip next week, so I'll be working on this till friday, but next week no updates as far as I know.
