This next cover plate will supply power for the HDS

Start with a design to hold 6 jacks

drill all the holes

dry fit it, to drill holes in the case

cut out mask for the design

time to add some green paint

remove the masking

cover the plate in black paint

finish cover plate

hardware to be added

cover plate ready for mounting

cover plate mounted in the case


Is not perfect, but I like it; too bad like a lot of other mods, it might become invisible when the case is finish. Already the fans are dissapearing, behind some stuff. I got to add a cover plate with a window, to see some parts of them.

See you guys at the next post......CrazyModder ....out

painted and finished

the last plate is in place

P.S. One of this days I can start wiring all that crap.

This cover plate is for the top right side of the case

Got my design ready

It BROKE while drilling the last hole

after making a second one , we are ready for paint

after some B&G paint this is how it looks

Now added some hardware, I run out of jacks

this is the place where is going

is mounted in place

and a picture showing where is it


Now I had to start work in the next one and continue untyl that side is fully cover.

The next cover plate is for the multimedia card reader, this is the desing; it has two plexi gromets for some cables.

its composed of three main parts

after paint, you can see the individual parts

this is how it goes together

now you can see it in place


Now this will be the desing for the bottom plate, just a clear window

the plate has been painted

now you can see it in place


This is the cover plate, that will be the gromets for the WC hoses

after paint

this is how it works

and this is where it goes


This is an auxiliary cover plate, in case I need more connections; yeah right

same old paint scheme

now is doing is job, covering


This is just a blank cover plate

after some B&G paint

in position at it final resting plate


This is a final shot at how they all look together


The inside cover plates are finish, the case is now divided in three areas. The left side contains the HDs and the air box for them. The right side is housing all the controlers and the air box for the radiators. While the center area is home to everything else, MOB, PSUs, Res and some other stuff that I haven't figure out yet. Notice all the different plates and depths in them, from the begining I didn't want it to be smooth or one piece. I was going for a stager look, more modular; that can be easy to work with. Why all the jack connections? Just in case I need them and since I don't know yet; where all the cables are gonna be connected, this way I just run a cable an plug it in. Now I'm getting an idea on how many cables I had to build, lets said its a lot.
Next I will start in the WC stuff, before I change my design again; which is at least, once a week. I finally decide how is gonna look like, of course isn't gonna look the way, I wanted in the first place.
The whole case has gone off course, will see what happens at the end.

So here I start building the water cooling loop for the case

This are the RADs, already mounted in the RADs bracket

here they are mounted inside the case, the flash made the top Rad look copperish in color

this is a closer look, remember all the RADs are going to be cover, by the cover plates

the pump goes between the lower RAD and the lower intake fan, this will keep it cool

made this mounting plate for the pump

this way is easier to mount inside the case

the pump is secure with three screws to the bottom of the case

the MOB has the WC blooks already in place

I tried to do a simple and clean loop, this is what I came out with

a view from the top, the cable wrap helps with the kinks and looks better

this is how the loop looks at the pump, it won't be visible from outside

I drilled a big hole at the top of the case, for the fill port

a view from inside the case

now another picture with the fill port in place, the screws don't come all the way thru the case

a top picture of the fill port

and here you got another one from a different angle

this is the top part of the case, WC loop conections at the fill port

need to connect the drain valve, it goes to that hose in the right side

drilled a hole for the drain valve

this is the drain valve, it has a barb at the end; forgot to take a picture of it

the drain hose has been attached to the drain valve

the upper two hoses, had to be connected to the RES ( haven't made it yet )

a picture of the pump showing thru the lower cover plate

a picture of the right top section of the case with the cover plates back in place


Well now I had to figure out and start building the RES, that should be the next update.

See you guys at the next post......CrazyModder ....out

This is it guys the Reservoir build enjoy.

$10 pasta cooker, 4"x12" and 3/16" thick at local dep store

I need a cap for the open end and it will hold the fittings

little jiggy thing to finish the cap to the proper size

it fits like a glove

glue the cap to a green plexi disc

drill and treated the fitting holes

fittings in place at the bottom of the disc

added a clear divider that will go inside the RES to half it size tall

glue the RES body to the lower plate

The RES is finish, now to add some stuff to it



This is where CrazyModder, start working

I wanted a different looking RES, to be the center piece of the case. Some how I found this at a Pet Shop a Hamster Wheel.

It comes apart at the middle, so I got a top and a bottom

I screw one half to the top of the RES and the other will go at the bottom

this leave me with a gap that has to be fill, some more plexi was added

painted the wheel to match the color scheme, the green parts are the wheel original color.

painted the cover plate for the inside too.

this is how it looks from the top, it will be the same at the bottom side

build this little bars and sleeve them like the wires

attach them to the cover plates

Now you see the RES, almost finish



I added some LEDs holders to both cover plates

wired the UV LEDs

tested them

now I cover the RES with a black mesh, should look good with the green water

put all together and is finish for now

my friend seems to like it


It end up at 13" height and 7" width, it has UV LEDs at the bottom plate and white LEDs at the top plate, I plan in power them independently. I still have to figure out how to attach it to the case, forgot to think about it while building this Monstrosity.


the support bracket for the RES

its compose of three parts, very simple yet strong

the parts after painting

now is assembled, I used glue and screws

a top picture of the bracket and RES together

and another shot from the side

Now the RES is mounted in the case

a picture from another angle

and another one

and last a couple of pictures of the WC loop

I think is a very clean loop


WC loop is finished, tested and no leaks.

Thanks to all of you that comment and voted in this log.....


P.S. You guys can HATE IT or LIKE IT, but please don't BASH IT.
