I'm not going to order any fittings until I get my tubing layout. The base is going to be constructed with 1/2 Plywood. I got all the wood and acrylic window marked up for cutting, I'll upload some pics of it tomorrow after work. I'll try to get them cut this weekend and apply the paint and vinyl wrap. Once I get the base built I can start layout parts and getting my tubing/wiring drawn out. Hopefully I can get an order into MDPC for custom sleeving.

Look what USPS dropped off today smile.gif Fresh wrap from metrorestyling.




I have to work tomorrow :x so next update will be sunday night. I plan on setting up my table saw and drill press in the car port cause its supposed to rain all weekend here in TN. My plan is to get the base built and some things painted if all goes well. I brought home a heat gun from work today to help with the acrylic edges and vinyl wrap smile.gif Still havent decided on if I want to use screws nails or glue to attach the wood together :/

looks interesting, subbed.

what you're making is essentially a pedestal.

since you've went this far, why not build a volenti cooler?

Yep pretty much a WC pedestal smile.gif

Volenti cooler just not my thing really, the Level10GT doesn't have much space inside of it like other WC cases so I pretty much wanted something I could house my parts in. Plus with the heat exchangers in the future I can add a mini chill loop.

I already thought about of modding a fountain or some zen type fixture on the cooling side of the heat exchangers.

Im also trying to go for quiet quiet quiet smile.gif Using sound dampening on the base so I dont hear any pumps. All fans are going to be noiseblocker on control. In the level10GT I will have 2x 240 RADs with PWM fans on each loops for CPU/GFX, on them to pick up any slack or "load" the heat exchangers can't handle if needed, but these will be kept low as possible at all times.
Level 10GT
