I don't think that the shut off valve on the right is necessary. Since it is a closed loop I believe that you would want the path to your GPU to stay open so that the water would be free to drain out and air to be able to enter to displace the fluid that is leaving.

Got a little bit done during my lunch break earlier today.

Made the power switch out of a differential gear and a car engine start switch. Had to shave off quite a bit for the switch to fit but it all worked out.

Also dremeled out the necessary holes for cables, componenets, screws etc.

Damn looks great, was thinking about doing something similar with my new office. The Steven Jobs framed photo kills it for me though (lol).

I've been chipping away the passed week or so...put in an hour or two a day. Here's some of what I got done:


Finished cutting out the holes for screws, cable passage ways, interfaces, etc.








Finalized placement for reservoir. Added 2 mounted to help support the mount it came with. Primed and painted them black as well.







Made a custom support bracket for the PSU with random pieces of stuff from hardware stores. Cut and shaped them to fit together.










Made some cannons out of auto gears and other stuff.











Made the base of the cannon shell. Did a few different versions until I was satisfied. Designed it in 3ds Max, then into Pepakura, printed it out, glued to board, cut out, folded, super glued, fiberglass and resined the inside, polyester paste on the outside, sand, refine, sand, prime, paint. Still going to add a lot of detail to it.




























Painted the HDs










Made custom mounts for some of the fittings








Tested out the LEDs that will go under all acrylic plates






Will post more as this inches along :-)
