With the build, still need to address some color mismatches with the pump motor tubes and tweak the lighting a little bit. The lighting is actually white, some it came out blueish in the pic.

Looks awesome even with a cell phone camera =)

I did a 13 x 13 x 13 cube build once with fold out gull wing doors...did not put half that much stuff in it and it still felt like doing micro surgery--had to get my wife and her tiny little hands for some of the connections.

Nice setup for shooting the paint!

The parts look like they were born that color to me. Great work.

It's one of the reasons I am opting not to do a traditional OCN build log. I have taken apart and rebuilt this thing so many times now the picture documentation alone would be exhausting.

Yeah...but if we didn't get a huge kick out of the building process we would be using a Dell or HP right? Once it is in your blood...I still remember quite vividly the first time I key chained a (then) very expensive 233 MHz CPU I pushed just a little too far...had a passively cooled Matrox Millennium G400 that I "modded" by screwing a tiny little fan onto the heat sink. Hacked a side and top window into a Dragon case and I kid you not used flash light bulbs to light the inside.

Then cross drilled a chunk of copper to make a water block and it used silver soldered copper tube...using the pencil trick to unlock CPU's.

As hobbies go this one is pretty awesome =)

Haha I like to think of those as the wild-west days of PC modding and overclocking, before it became a huge moneymaking industry.

Pulled the 3/4" inch dowel rod (had it wrapped in wax paper so it came right out) out of the silicone mold today. It's actually curing quite nicely so far. I think it might actually work. Having it shut in the guest bathroom with the bathtub and sinks filled with water, a few fans and a space heater set to 90F probably isn't hurting it either.

Question ... the stand alone pump 'cover' ... does it take this pump (Watercool WCP D5-PWM) or this one (Swiftech MCP655 Series 12 VDC D5)?

The watercooled one says it is 65 x 65 x 57 while the swiftech says it is 87mm diameter. Or are they the same size and the ribbed collar on the swiftech is throwing me off?

What is the diameter of the pump 'cover'? I ask because I only have 82mm to play with in my preferred pump housing site.

thats comparing a naked D5 to a housed D5 so the Swiftech size is including the housing. any naked D5 is all the same size.

The installed diameter is 77mm

Thank you both very much. The pump fits in required space and I am happy!

Assembly complete. I had some trouble with a few of the ports on one of the end caps. the threads were not cut very cleanly so i had a lot of difficulty with some of the plugs and one of the fittings not wanting to thread in properly. I just used a 1/2 -20NF tap threaded in by hand (gently) and it cleaned the threads right up.
I will use some model paint touch up a few scuffs once I have it assembled in the case.

Overall I really like the look and can not say enough about the fantastic design, quality, aesthetics and value of these things. Well done Monsoon, well done.
