Thank you very much smile.gif

Already had to change design and components again rolleyes.gif I didn't consider that my GPUs were longer than my motherboard. So there just isn't room enough for the reservoir. I've tried repositioning it to other parts of the case, but it is simply too big to fit anywhere.

So.. Had to rethink my reservoir and pump plans.

My new plan is to use an Eheim 1048 and a reservoir I have for that. I can hide the pump inside the PSU cover and just have the outlet sticking up the top and connecting to the reservoir.

Looking good, I rushed the end of mine so It ended up being a matter of using lots of double sided sticky tape and super glue to fix it together tongue.gif

Haha biggrin.gif ***?! How the hell did you manage to do that? tongue.gif

I just found out what I want to do with the front drive slot. Originally I want to make a bezel and install 3 x XSPC temp displays. But since I am low on funds, I decided to work with what I have. So I made a piece of white acrylic as a back panel (that will light up once I get the lights installed). Then I am going to get a piece of red acryllic laser cut to say "REPUBLIC OF GAMERS". I think that would look cool with the backlighting smile.gif

I guess it should look a little something like this:

I know I suck at updating biggrin.gif But **** is getting done! tongue.gif

The final design is now complete and I have bolted down the PSU and rads.


So.. Compared to the last design, I have replaced the pumps and res with a combo. The reason for this is, that I could not fit the 300mm cylinder res. Nor could I fit my other pump and res combos. Så now, the pump is going to be hidden by the acrylic that also covers the PSU. The res is gonna pop up the top of it, and end in the top part with the top rad. The top rad is also going to be covered by an acrylic, so only the cylinder itself will be visible.

I think it's gonna look cool when it's done smile.gif

Next step is to do the cutouts for the fans in the bottom acryllic. I am a bit nervous about this, as the acryllic fits perfectly and I would hate to mess it up and have to make a new one biggrin.gif

As always, suggestions and feedback are welcome wink.gif

Subbed. But I also think an XSPC AX silver rad would look soooo sweet in there!

Thanks - but both of my rads will be hidden behind acryllic smile.gif

I've come across another problem though tongue.gif I have absolutely now idea how to put this thing back together when I have to do final assembly tongue.gif So many different parts that have to be assembled that conflict with the order they have to go in. And I haven't even gotten to the water cooling loop yet..

Damn chinese puzzle wheee.gif

Update time!

So.. I have mounted my bottom radiator and my PSU. Also sleeved my power cable going to the back, but since this will be hidden and my sleeving is butt ugly, I am NOT going to show you a pic of that tongue.gif

In addition, a hole has been cut in the acryllic covering the psu, so the pump/res combo is sticking up. This can be seen in the pictures, even though the res is transparent, so it might be hard. And I apologize for the terrible quality.

The top part of the case will also be covered in white acryllic, so the radiator, fans and top of the res will not be visible once it is done.
