[Build Log] Finished - Akvo - Core V1 Custom Watercooled - Page 6

post #51 of 140
Very nice work so far, there is a lot of watercooling goodness in that tiny little case! Can't wait to see more! Sub'd for sure

Side panels looks good Victor! You plan on doing any other mods to them or will you be attaching them as is? Any plans on filling the cutouts with anything or will you be leaving them as is?

Thanks!
Yes, i'll drill the screw holes in this panel when the case is ready (i sent it to be painted).
Since this is the right side panel, i'm not going to use any filter in the cutouts, unless i find a white thin dust filter.

I've spray painted the corners of the temperature sensors, to match the case theme:

The Core V1 is painted! biggrin.gif
Only the drilled side panel (where the rads will be mounted) need to be painted again ( the automotive lacquer not adhered very well).
For comparison purposes, I made a comparison with the bottom panel, that was not painted:

Ooooooo shiney! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Looks great though must be a huge fingerprint/dust magnet! I Really like the look of the front mesh now. Paired up with the acrylic side panel will look awesome. You should do a quick assembly with the acrylic panel in place and post some pics.

Actually there is almost none fingerprint in it!
They used some kind of glossy Anti-fingerprint automotive ink, with the lacquer. When you rub your finger on the surface it slips, leaving very little fingers mark.
About the dust, we will know with the time rolleyes.gif
I'm in the office righ know, but i'll do it when i get home and post the pics thumb.gif

Very nice finish! Keep it up! thumb.gif

Looks good! Since it's automotive paint, you could put a couple coats of wax on it to help protect it and shine it up nice. Just a thought

Man, what a great idea you had!
I have some special wax for black cars (Collinite 915), i'll give it a try and see how the case and panels will look.
Thanks thumb.gif
