That's what I thought, and it's alot cheaper than a premade tube res, since the bottle is already in stock biggrin.gif

made some progress on the build and got the machine up and running. I didn't use the skull yet as I couldn't really find a spot for it. I may use it as the fill port on top of the rig, but not sure yet.

started it up to see the temps after running it for a while. not too bad.

This is by far the most interesting build i've in a while. Definitely refreshing. Keep it up thumb.gif

Great build, I'd better not let my lad see it though; he'll want one!

put the fan controller in and now the only thing that remains to do is the front cover that goes on the right side of the case. I need to trim the drive bay area out a little bit to fit the controller and then i should be done.

Looks awesome! That paint reacts great with the UV light. Did you get the Logisys 12" Dual Pack? I've got those for making my UV green fluid glow, but I'm only just satisfied with them. I have one right smack next to the tube reservoir, so it looks fantastic, but I'm not as thrilled with the rest of the tubing -- it's a bit weak. I don't know if that's as good as I'm going to get, or if a "brighter"/"more powerful" UV light will make the bits that are further away "pop" more. I'm gonna try an actual fluorescent light as a test before I order a higher quality cathode.


I see you got the Bitfenix Recon. I wasn't thrilled with it's 10W per channel, so I did some more searching and landed on the Lamptron CW611 -- love it. Vibrant white lighting, 36W per channel, and different settings for fans, pumps, and flow meters. It's a bit more expensive, but its extra class is evident!

other side finished. done with the exception of making the red led on the hydro copper heatsink something else.


yeah, the uv cold cathodes are the dual 12" logisys pack. they aren't as bright as i wanted, but they work for what i needed
