Looks AWESOME though! And yikes! That's a lot of money! Is there anywhere you could cut costs from?

well a whole lot of it is the water cooling (£500) the rest, not really, although I am trying to pursuade parents to chip in, then once I have the majority of the parts I can sell my current rig for some more money

haha!

Not much today, cleaned up the rest of the side panel radiator mount and drilled the holes for mounting the radiator and drilled the holes for the bottom radiator, just need to angle grind between the holes. Other than that I just need to cut cable management holes and make the new IO shield smile.gif

Ok, so I have just tested the radiator with fans in each of the locations and.... *drum roll*... it works! Just need to cut the ventilation holes for the bottom rad, also been given some money to do the water cooling biggrin.gif just need to work on those parents haha!

There is plenty of room between the side rad and the PSU so cable management shouldn't be an issue, the cables will then come out beneath the front rad and any excess cables can be stored behind the bottom rad (between it and the side panel) Also paint arrived today, for those that don't know the scheme is fairly similar to MacBane by Photograph, in fact it is pretty much identical! Will be using white primer for the side panels and matt black for the rest of the case, except from the outside of the handles which will be white wink.gif To do tomorrow: (1) Cut out big hole in bottom of case (2) File big hole in bottom of case (3) Cut medium holes in sides of case for cables (4) File holes (5) (if time) draw and laser cut fan shrouds with correct spacing, just gonna need one as I have switched the side and bottom rads around as it makes sense in terms of heat flow... Cold air comes in the front and bottom (filtered) and exists through the side and from the PSU which will draw air over MOBO cooling that indirectly. I know that there will be a cycle where the bottom rad will be pulling air that has been exhausted from side rad but hey thats life! The system won't be running hot and I am not sure what will be happening in terms of OCing as I don't know whether the mac side of things can handle an OC, if any one knows please do let me know as it would be nice to push the CPU to around 4.5GHz biggrin.gif

MOAARRRR PICTURES!!!

And you checked before hand that when you put your motherboard in there, it clears the bottom radiator, right?

Yup, it has 30mm between side panel and radiator, using 10mm standoffs which leaves 20mm for front panel connectors etc. of which there will just be power. Not worried about lower PCI lanes either as I am just using single GPU
