I have exams in 1 week so I'll have to study.
Meaning I can't really do anything for this build it is like
1 week school prep
1 week exams
2 weeks exam training
3 weeks of learning
3 weeks of final exams

I might however put in some days in the 3 weeks learning window so I can move this a bit forward.
Next step will be modifying the 120mm fan.
I will remove a part of the fan which is preventing the air from being blasted sideways instead of straight this is to ventilate and push hot air to the sides of the case where it will dump the carried heat.


The top one is the pre and the bottom one is after.
The blue color is what will be removed from the fans while keeping the fan from falling apart.

Thanks this weekend I can refigure what to do next I actually found my belt sander by coincidence last week so I may smoothen the interior a bit.
I really have to order the rest espially the IR modules the apple remote keyboard the acrylic bottom plate and new this time high quality pci-e extenders also I have to order a higher quality pump which will push more water while fitting better I also have to order so-dimm's(however I might take my laptop and steal 4GB of its 8GB).

Edit:I just recalled that I started on modifying the 120mm fan so it can pull air and push it to the sides a lot of tape and dremel-ing incoming.

I cut up the fan tonight it doesn't look that good yet but I will sand away the melted and chipped plastic.
I actually broke one of the support strips so I will either chloroform that or I might be lazy and just use glue wink.gif
Will update once the fan is sanded and show-able.
