Updates:

Got a lot of the panels drilled and glued but also cracked a major panel so I gotta start it all over. I don't want to post pictures until its finished just so I can hold the suspense.

The waterfall panel has some major leaks so I've been working on sealing the sides so that no water falls out. So far it has worked but need to test 24-48 hours just to make sure there are no small leaks that I'm missing.

Newegg came and dropped off a package that made me kind of happy. I didn't know the 6950 was the size of my e-peen. Holy Cow. This I will post pictures of.




And a picture of my old case/computer just for good measure.

I have a finished product minus the waterfall because it came out terribly. But I am not happy with how the case came out and will start over from scratch. Sorry for the delays

I was just in a hurry to finish before school started and it failed because I rushed. I will be slowly starting over. I learned a lot from my first attempt so hopefully the next try will be flawless.

Here are a few pictures to display my failure. With the revision, I'm making the dimensions a little bigger, moving the fans into the case and a bunch of other small things.

Wow, congratulations! Of course now our expectations just went through the roof First try doesn't look too bad either, good things to come I'd say...

Thinking about putting the 6950 under water and adding another triple rad on top. Gotta make frozen-Q look good somehow . What do you guys think? Is it worth it to cool the graphics card? Maybe even the motherboard? It's so expensive and hurts my wallet just thinking about it.
