I like the pumps...18usd is definitely cheep. I wouldn't trust the water blocks that much, but the fittings, pumps, reservoirs and tubing seem adequate. Also magicool rads are decent tongue.gif

Ya, I would definitely go for the pump, res and fittings. In fact I just might if I can xD All depends if I get a job soon lol. I'd buy different rads and blocks though.

UPDATES!!!

I'm really excited about this one in particular. I painted the back panel for the motherboard tray, and it turned out WAY better than I expected. So I took a lot of pictures xD When I grabbed the paint at the hardware store, it was the darkest primer there. I kind of wanted a textured look, but didn't grab any because I thought it would be too thick. I thought this stuff was going to be just a darker color primer, but it's almost black and it has kind of a textured look. I'm so pumped about this! It's the exact color I was wanting!






Also did some more work on Sketchup model.



Should have more updates on the top panel tomorrow. Plan on painting the motherboard tray on Monday too. Oh, and I'm going to try and get the acrylic cut tomorrow too! Stay tuned! thumb.gif

Woohoo!!!! tongue.gif

Awesome man, now go bake that part or use a heat gun. (is it spray paint?)
I just got a heat gun myself, and some good quality solder for a vmodd project of mine.
Will start modding my cm 692 soonish...keep it up!

Sure! I learned everything by trial and error.

First off, I get my components from here:
http://scc.jezmckean.com/home

As for the latest update, I've redone the entire thing, and made each panel on Sketchup. I saved each one, and put it all together in one assembly. It's really just a matter of playing with dimensions, and placing things, like a giant puzzle, but you make the pieces. Any specifics you need help on? thumb.gif

Thanks for sharing that...I was having trouble with the perspective lol
Imported a cm 692 photo and tried making a model out of that, failed miserably.
While doing that a few ideas for a glass and wood test bench sprung so I think I'll be doing two projects. Slowly but surely biggrin.gif

The whole 3D thing is a bit hard to grasp, but I've had background using AutoCAD which is a lot more complicated than Sketchup. I've never tried importing a picture. I don't even know how xD Awesome! Slowly but surely is definitely the way I do things biggrin.gif

I'm also not going to be ale to cut the window today, but I will be able to rout the channels for the top piece today.
