well I have been called a mad Dr., as well as a crazy tool maker, so I guess insanity fits just as well.
if you don't mind, what part did you find insane, or was it a general statement about the whole build?
there are 15 years of research and conception being put to use here.
this is my largest, and my final build, I will never make anything bigger than this, I will upgrade this, even clean it up, but that is all I will do to it.

Well, for starters, the scope of the build is in a league of it's own - as far as what i have seen before.

Then there is the inclusion, and combination, of tec's, vacuum and what not.

And lastly, as per your response, the 15 years of research and dedication.

I am well aware that this isn't insanity in its literal definition, but rather the descriptive use you would see in a forum.

This build reminds me of the crazyness that was the modding scene circa 2004, where refrigerator and freezer builds were common place. Or even people using garden pond, random plumbing and carcooling accessories to watercool their machines.

But yeah, this is neither insanity nor madness. This .. is .. MODDING - at its finest

I admire your dedication!
And you can take it as a compliment when i say; a pc case is so 2003 :-)

making the setup designed so that the computer components can be upgraded without having to destroy the current setup inside the ice chest, this has been a pondering thought since I started this project. I cant think of any easy way to do it, so I have decided to use couplers on the water in line and the water out line, inside the ice chest. I will have to bend both of the lines in such a way that the couplers can be gotten to and undone. I will most likely have to remake the copper lines, for inside the ice chest each time I upgrade the system. its not the best way, but I cant really see any other way around it.

I am hoping that I can save the sections of tubing that go in and out of the ice chest by using the couplers. the reason that I think I will have to remake the connecting lines to the water blocks is because, every water block manufacture seems to think that there in and out holes for there water blocks, should be in a different place than the other guys, and it seems that every different motherboard wants there video cards placed into different slots, when going SLI. so I will most likely need to remake the connecting lines to the hardware water blocks because of this. unless I get really lucky, I will hope for that but I wont count on it.

frames for the fan controllers

so I think I make this look easier than it is, but still it will take me a few days to finish the frame for the fan controllers.
I have made it large enough for one more fan controller, just incase I need one more, if I do, I will get a 6 channel 30W per channel fan controller.
one might have noticed, that I have made the frame for the TEC assemble larger than necessary as well, this to was done, just in case I need it later for adding more TEC's to the build. Its not that I want to have to add anything to the build, but I don't want to remake all of my frames either, incase I have to.

Well isn't it buying steel, marking points then drilling holes?
Thats seems quite simple and easy

Way to over-simplify the process... You are talking to "toolmaker03". I think he'd know how difficult fabricating structures are. How is questioning the difficulty add anything to the thread?

the fan controllers frame is done, so I am moving on to the Power supplies and the frames for them.

well the hard part is not the measuring and marking the points and the larger the hole the easier that becomes, the hard part comes into play with small holes right next to each other the margin allowed for error becomes quite small.

well I built a jig for measuring the hole placement for me, and followed the jig for my holes, because my holes are so close together and small they need to be close to exact, for the frame to be useable for the fan controller.
but when I simply measured and marked my holes on the angle for holding the fan controllers, the holes where too far out of range to be useable, trust me, you will understand when you attempt to do something like this one day.
