Loving it! Great work buddy. Do you intend to light the midplate (what do you call those?) from beneath?

We generally call them pass-through plates, in this case it's the midplate too. It will be lit from the 'inside' if you look in the back you can see there is a slot cut through the lid and into the block itself all the way down the length of the panel. When illuminated it will refract through the acrylic lighting up every coolant run and every screw as well as acting like a lightbox bouncing light up into the case. It's really nice and subtle as you can't see the LED strip.

It's awesome Joe, I want something similar in my L1.0 when we get to that one (next year I'm thinking... Gotta save some $$). Cant wait to see it lit up. Your buddy must be buzzing! He's gonna love it.

Super epic! Don't know how I missed this. Just wondering how the case feels to move. Is it very bottom heavy? And does the bottom acrylic piece bend much because of the weight?

As a rule using radiators almost the full length of the panel almost acts as a brace. If you imagine bolting 5mm worth of acrylic 24 times over the span of 2 long radiators becomes one very strong panel. On top of that the 10mm acrylic plate does nothing but add strength.

I would assume (I've not lifted it yet) that it would be bottom heavy.. but I would much prefer that to top heavy I think biggrin.gif

Joe knows.. he loves dropping rigs.

It's actually very well balanced, the graphics cards are very heavy and the power supply is just about in the middle, together with the reservoir and mechanical drives at the front the weight is spread evenly throughout. For it's height the footprint is huge so it feels very stable both to hold and on a table.

Nothing in it bends at all and all of the components added serve only to strengthen the structure of the case even further, especially the acrylic tubing and 15mm thick midplate. As Justin says the floor itself is braced by the radiators which run the entire length of the case. It's a very rigid build and reassuringly heavy, the only consideration is if your desk and can withstand it.

Indeed, after multiple rounds of testing I can safely conclude that acrylic is one of the most capable materials used in PC construction, failing to yield in even the most extreme circumstances when aluminium and steel are rekt. As the case and loop are entirely acrylic I can only assume that the radiators and GPU blocks would be immediately destroyed.

I'm sure everyone will be pleased to know that sleeving supplies are arriving with great urgency RS Online and Shakmods have delivered copious amount of 16AWG wire and ATX blocks, however no sleeve as of yet.

I don't know how I've managed to miss this, but phenomenal job so far. I can't wait to see it finished up.
