Agreed. Besides a skull and crossbones would get way too "piraty"

Update #5

After waiting for a very long time, I´ve decided to make the case by myself. The lack of communication between me and Parvum has just been below average (in my opinion). I don't know if someone else had/has this problem to but it might be something to keep in mind?

So let's move on with this build. Luckily I'm studying at a technical school that has the appropriate equipment to finish it. The things I've already made are the reservoir and a front panel. In the meantime I bought some acrylic and dam what do I love that glow …







Still have to polish the reservoir but I think it already looks awesome! The reservoir was CNC milled by a good friend of my. I used some 10mm thick clear acrylic form Evonik. The only downside was that the vacuum cleaner did not really do what it was supposed to do so the entire floor was covered with plastic snow.













The front panel was laser cutted at school. This is just a test panel to see if the measurements were correct therefore, it is made out of triplex (plywood?).





Yes the plate was a bit to small …
Up to the next update!

Looking good, I'm sorry it didn't work out with Parvum, they make great cases.

Update #6

Back at it again with another update tongue.gif Let me think what I have done since the last update … Oooh yes I remember now. I CNC milled the horizontal plate on which the motherboard will be placed. Unfortunately, the drill was worn down wherefore the holes don’t match anymore. I’ll have to order a new acrylic panel and replace this one but those are worries for later. The 24-pin cable will be replaced by that of Bitfenix.





I love to see how the board is flush with the plate



I polished the pump top and reservoir but for some reason I didn’t make a picture of the reservoir … I still have to remove the remaining polishing paste.





In the meantime I designed a pc case holder or however you would like to call it. For those who want to know how I made it: I first made a rough sketch in Inventor 2016. Then I opened the same file in Autodesk 123d make. This program slices the object, you can set how many slices you want or at which angle it should be sliced and etc. Finally I got it cut with the laser cutter. I’m still thinking about finishing it but I do not know exactly how yet.





Someone also welded some metal rings on the outside of the case for me to secure the front and back panel later on. On the inside, we welded some support brackets to hold the acrylic horizontal plate.



And just some random pictures …

Wow man, this is looking great! I probably missed it, but how did you end up doing the case?
