Appreciate the comments, glad you guys like the res... to think that I was going to scrap the idea and go with a regular double bay res.

The res seems to have been the last part of the loop, so I hope to have this thing wet by Sunday.. That is if I get on polishing that center divider, as some hoses need to pass through it.
TBD..

I'm not sure how that res looks from your angle, but from here it is anything but ugly.

I love it!

The divider is mainly for looks. Tho it does have a purpose. Main reason is to have some cable management, as this case has none. Second is to keep the heat from the hdd's in a separate chamber of the case. This is not all that important, but I guess my P182 just rubbed off on me..

I guess not "ugly", tho it could have been better. I was looking to have the barbs threaded right into the aluminum. This would have given it a "cleaner" look, but it will have to do the way it is for now.

On another not, I got the smoked acrylic. I guess it's window time today... hopefully.

Man, that reservoir looks intense!!!

I might try the same thing, minus the aluminum or whatever you used . Just added clutter for my not-as-huge-ass-as-your-case case.

Got a little bit of work done today, so here it is.


I used the scrap metal from the top panel, to cover up the radiator fans.



A bit of double sided tape to attach it since i didn't want to drill the fans.



Nice and clean.









Now the center divider. Due to my laziness I ended up opting not to polish it out. Instead I ran a belt sander with some 320 on it. It was supposed to be a brushed like finish.














This is where the reservoir will rest.
