That does look very nice. It is awfully expensive though......then again it has nice parts in it. Only complaints I have is that its not a thermochill pa120.3, and there is no shroud.

It looks great maybe I will have to copy it this summer

You can buy the casing alone for $70 and add your own components.
Once again...

Yeah it would be cheaper to build a replica of it, but I love the idea of GOOD extenal WC setups...

I have nothing but GREAT things to say about PTS to... They get their stuff out fast and I even got a hand written thank you note...

i go to them for all my wc needs.

Aluminum work or case building is not that easy for 99.99% of the population.

You could build your own Thermaltake Armor....

Yeah I saw that. I think I might do that instead of getting a huge case. Wish there was one big enough for 2 radiators, but I suppose I could just get 2 of these huh?

I wonder how much cheeper it would be to do it yourself..I'm thinking about asking my high school metals teacher to get one of the students to make one of these for me. Estimates on how much aluminum (or whatever) it would take to make this?

btw here is the website, has more photos including a photo of where the tubing comes out

I remember reading his posts on the XtremeSystems Forums when he was first designing that. I've been looking for that post for the past few days to see how things were going but couldn't find it again.
He was chatting with them about forming a company to sell them online and what legal items to be concerned about. Copyright was one of them. I guess he decided to have the post removed so he could protect his invention?

None-the-less ... it is a pretty nice external WC design. I've been working on my own and recently posted some design prints on this forum.
Mine would allow for a total of 2 480GTX rads, 2 MCP655 Pumps, 16 120mm fans in a push-pull arrangement, 2 EK-250 Reservoirs and a proprietary power supply within the case. A tight fit, but should look pretty good in the smoked acrylic. ( quick, somebody convice my wife that I need time to finish it really really soon ! )

That's a whole second case! CrazyJoe, you're crazy. Can't wait to see it though I think I might design one like the WaterKeg, but for 2x320s
