A couple of things to get the party started. I apologize for the quality of these photos, my moto X camera sucks. I should be taking all future photos with my DSLR.

Teaser shot?

Feedback from the audience time. I've mocked up a few things in paint and sketchup (first time user so cut me some slack) and would like to get some responses. A few things to keep in mind... the first few were mocked up before i decided the stock VRM sink on the hero looks lame and I want to get rid of it. Also, the sketchup models are a rough estimate at best, i'm using the M6 Formula instead of the Hero, and the pump model I'm using has the taller tube of the D5 X-Res 140 (until I messed around and shortened it). I would like to keep a drive cage, as I have several spinning discs in my current system and would like to keep at least 2 if possible. I may decide that I'm just hamstringing myself aesthetically and remove it, but we'll go with keeping it for the time being.

Option 1


Option 2


Option 3


Option 4


Option 5


Option 6


Option 7



I actually mocked up so many in paint that when I uploaded them to google drive, google turned them into a gif...

Debating putting this build into either an SM8 or SMA8 instead of the 750D. Ideally I'd like something that kind of splits the difference between those two in terms of size, as filling the SMA8 seems difficult to do without either gratuitous radiators or reservoirs.

I'd go option 1 or 2.
