I think the guy who did the mod said all the custom fabricated parts(CNC milled) cost him about 4K RMB or around 600USD, the radiators and other stuff probably cost another couple hundred USD. (he listed all the parts he used but I don't know much about WC so no clue how much those parts cost)

BTW which city do you work in in China?

That is almost exactly what I estimated the custom stuff cost. Hadn't gone through the entire thread before, now I see the post where he shares the figure. Also looks like he doesn't mind handing out the CAD templates to those who ask. Wonder if he would put me on with his source who could probably fabricate a duplicate set easier than anyone else.

Though I would go with a different cover, possibly designed with rails to match the HDD heatsink column, or some variation of this suggestion someone else made in the thread:



A different radiator layout would also suit me (3x240mm or 2x360mm, to allow more room/accessibility for cable management). Might be time to brush up on those forgotten CAD skills.

Most of my work is in Linyi (Shandong) and Xuzhou (Jiangsu), but I live at the port in Lianyungang (Jiangsu) to avoid being landlocked. Sometimes it is a very long commute (especially when the Jinghu expressway backs up as it so often does), but it's worth it to be on the sea (plus driving here is fun).

What ties you to 中国?
