I imagine that the impact of a liquid that was a dark red when hot and a soft pink when cool would look pretty impressive.

I think @Mayhem did some development on such a liquid at some point but not sure that it ever came to market.

The Aquaero fan controller and be set up to change the LEDs based on temp. I've seen several people put the LEDs in the reservoir bottom, and then the coolant in the reservoir will change with the LEDs.

My fault - sorry. But turning the same approach to air cooling ... you could introduce colored smoke!

Ventilated Slot Covers

Finally found some slot covers I was happy with, a $5 set from eBay! They are pretty thin and flimsy looking but they are surprisingly strong and most importantly will allow plenty of flow thumb.gif




Techflex Velcro Cable Manager

I found this from a local company that makes all sorts of expandable and normal sleeving for electricians. It's hard to stop it from fraying but with some patience I managed to cut a decent piece to hold all the majority of fan and LED cables into one need bunch. The fact that it closes up with a velcro type system means I can troubleshoot or change things very easily.

Mayhem's was working on a coolant that did just that and was called "Chameleon" or something like that.

Thanks Baz smile.gif

The Ensourced cables are still stuck in Melbourne for some reason, 6 days now. The rest of the sleeving is stuck in NSW according to the tracking aaaaand the Lian Li I/O arrives at the retailer on March 9 so there are going to be a few delays. That said there are still things I can work on and show you guys once I get the time thumb.gif

Looking great Grim, and I can't wait till your parts all arrive and we can start to see this beast come together thumb.gif

Also is that Seinfeld on the TV in the background ?
