Looks awesome man!

I'v got to ask, why did you use colored coolant? The only place you see it is the res, i know it looks cool, but distilled water on it's own is better for the loop.

great job! I completely forgot that you were updating the first page so I was subbed and thought nothing was happening.

I am running distilled water with exactly 10% G11 plus 1 drop PT Nuke per liter. To be honest, I wasn't comfortable without using some type of anti-corrosion in the loop. I'm actually not a fan of the UV look at all. That's part of why I bought the black lines. I think it looks 1000X better like that IMO. That's also part of the reason I wanted to hide the pump for the most part; that and noise reduction. However, with that clear restop, I put a lot of thought into the mixture so that I didn't end up with some clashing color. I was finally satisfied with the color having two UV LEDs plus one more blue LED which I drilled another hole for in the bottom of the res to mount. Here's a picture with the UV LEDs off.

Yep, I'm busy at this thing on a daily basis.

Ah ok i spose that is ok. I didn't mean without an anti-corrosive, but i meant without PT Nuke. Don't get me wrong, i love the colour you have achieved!


I didn't know they made coolant!

I made this switched extension cord that I can run from a remote system so that I have control over my pump while I'm filling the loop.
is this as easy as wire to and from... nothing more?

if so i wanna do this too... and mount the switch on the side panel on the bottom

Why would you want to have a permanent switch for your pump? and on the bottom of your case? That's dangerous. You could slide it over something and turn the power off to your pump and not even know it.

To answer your question, it is about 7 feet long and I used it to plug my pump into a different computer. Then used the switch to turn it on and off while I filled the loop. As soon as the fluid was full, I just rolled it up and put it in a box.

I thought I should catch everyone up on what I've been working on lately. I made a small heat shield and mounted on the bottom of my waterblock to redirect the hot air being blown through the NB heatsink on the MB. The beer can I just emptied was the perfect material.



And here's a picture of the Heatkiller lapped. These two minor mods combined made a solid 2C load difference.


Here are some pictures showing the side panel paint process. I originally had planned to slightly alter the letters on the side panel after I painted them so that they will not be so bold, but I like the way it looks now too. I'm going to look at it like this for a while before I go ahead with it. The paint needs to cure fully before I do that anyways.



Sorry about these being a little blurry. I wanted to take in as much of the LED light as possible and that means no flash and crappy focus. I held my hand as steady as possible though.




You can see some marks between the letters. That is just tape residue. I didn't want to bother with it while the paint was still fresh. It will all come off though.



TO DO LIST:
  • Change out LED's on the fan controller
  • Change out LED's on the front bezel.
  • Mount the ASUS DVD-Rom drive back 1/4" and use drive bay blank as the face plate.
  • Finish sleeves on 12V ATX and PCI-E connectors.
  • Finish filters on side and front intakes.
  • Alter side panel paint scheme.(Still considering leaving it be as is.)
  • Apply Mod theme label on top shroud.
  • Buy Dragon Age: Origins and Borderlands
  • Enjoy
ALMOST THERE!

I added a handful more pictures in the 1st few posts just a bit ago as well. Be sure to go back and check out those updates!
