Not sure how long its been...but they do get pretty behind on emails. I experienced the same thing. Perhaps if you offered to pay instead of asking for a sponsorship?

Its been over 2 months now. I'm sure that I'm just being ignored. I've sent 5 emails to him since his last email to me.

Which build is informative on copper tubing and places to get tools and copper tube of right size.

Going to send Bitspower an email...and hope I get a response..

not much progress...Spent an hour finding my m3x10mm screws
ordered the parts for MuderBox type of lightbox

Got these M3 rubber washers from Hong Kong
8149479319_1cfe14cd5b_z.jpg

Put 4xM3 screws on the main vertical panel---for cable management
8149478493_1f2e812d4b_z.jpg

Shot of back of the panel with wingnuts and MDPC P clip which is a bit smaller than I what I posted earlier locally.
8149506912_5b452ff5a9_z.jpg

Haven't figured out the RGB portion ...whether custom AMP...or not...so didn't bother cutting them..
This shot is from a low angle which would never be seen...but it looks nice!!
You can barely see the accent colors on the bracket for the D5 pump ( 2 colors brown and maroon)
And bracket that holds the entire assembly is now Matte Black :

Thanks.
Now that I looked at it multiple times from different angles....I think i will do the bracket that holds the entire assembly as white ...same color as the back ...which is also custom painted as Krylon White.
That will give the semi floating look.
You can see the edge where it blends to original powder coating of STH10 on the right side on the high res picture.

Doing Aquabus daisy chain for loop 1 (copper brown loop)....26AWG since 2 points will have double wires coming out.
This way of connecting is confirmed by AQ/Shoggy:

First of all , i needed 4 holes on the main vertical motherboard wall..Since the hardisk cage comes down into middle compartment.
To componsate for the time being stacked the AQ5. Final one will have one bay gap between AQ5.

Did first AQ5, heatshrink is done as yet. length 26" (I think):
8152538636_2784ee59b8_z.jpg

Which goes to AQ Flow meter in bottom chamber. Everything is flat with brown tape...this way you don't even need to keep track of which wire is which..:
8152511935_66e8db9691_z.jpg

Need to cut off on this one...did 20" and it should be 15" going back to middle compartment:
8152536582_3cf469b7c8_z.jpg

Got excited and finished last part without reattaching and assumed 7" from D5 pump to Pump Adaptro..Bad idea (see picture after this):
8152509797_bcd9401181_z.jpg

Damn!...to tight a turn on last one:
8152534290_831464df01_z.jpg

Turned pump around 180 degrees to give some slack on wire above. Looks better but not perfect.
8152505383_b9d0f44058_z.jpg

So AQ5-> Flow-->Pump-->Pump Adaptor-(end)

Looking at these pictures I am not sure I want to do white fittings and deal with BitsPower out in Taiwan. They are very responsive but...
Going black fittings and hoping PPCS and FrozenCPU take all white fittings back and just get all black and be done with the headache.

OMG...means also I can't go all white sleeving with accent colors, for motherboard, gpu, cpu....Catch 22 --since I already got the dumping pack of white...like 300 feet (I think).

Found out the AQ black faceplate (made of aluminium) is thinner than the original (steel--i think..anyways heavier and much tougher) ... Thats why I was having such a hard time 2 months ago in getting them into 5.25" bay. The screws on faceplate go in much deeper which makes the inside wings span out more...
8154236479_a051f288b3_z.jpg

Which is a shame since I spent like $100 in getting them painted with car paint as the color on the edges would not stick with some beating..

So primed original..
8154241605_2e0248b312_z.jpg

Was gonig to paint it orange and then started having second thoughts after looking at front again..
8154257510_1524cae2cc_z.jpg

Redid the whole thing and primed one white and the other black..To get following colors going...which matches loop for loop.
loop 1 is copper brown..loop 2 is maroon so it will match the sleeving inside the case.
Maroon i used is burgundy on black primer...I could go Cherry Red on black primer and make it a bit brighter.
Thinking if I should give it a coat of Clear Coat (shiny) or Matte Finish.

Very interesting colours.

Also, love daisychaining the Aquabus cables. Too bad one was too short and will have to be remade frown.gif
