like so
Thats a sweet idea. Thanks for that.
Unfortunately that won't help with the blocks or fittings. In the picture that was previously shown I had the compression fittings right on the block so it would be a little easier to tell. I'll use 45 degree fittings off the blocks so realistically we're only talking about removing at most a 6x6 inch patch 1/4 deep (give or take).

Check out Fastcap website link here.

They also have an account on Amazon you can do a quick browsing here.

Keep us posted and I'll be following along with your other followers.
Thanks. I hadn't considered those. With monitors mounted you won't see any of those along the back. As for the screws holding on the metal corners I kind of like the contrast. It's the same on the interior metal corners that the legs bolt to. Now then... the screws holding on the grills I absolutely despise. On the far side they'll be out of sight for the most part as that side of the desk will be fairly close to the wall. The visible side there is the intake and I'll be using magnetic dust filters so they'll be covered. FYI there are a million more black screws along the bottom holding in the floor of the case that the picture doesn't show. All in all.. when it's up and running I think the last thing people are going to notice are the screws.

iirc, swiftech ONLY ever made such a hs addon for the HD4870. Admittedly, the HD5800 line, GTX400 line have both recieved a different kind of HS with a similar purpose, but those don't allow for the tubing the mounted in any orientation other than "straight up."

I did notice that. Still personal preference prevails. I just like the look of these big bulky over sized brutes.

Some shots of the damage.


See? Not much to take off the bottom of the tabletop. If I hadn't added risers to the bottom of the mobo tray this might not be an issue. We'll get that fixed soon enough.




I still have to order a 30mm extender. With that and a 90 degree elbow the intake to the cpu block will come straight over the out from the pump which will sit between the psu and the motherboard tray.






An overall view of the rear of the loop. I like what I call the "water gauntlet" over the hd rack.


A look at the cable cover installed. After spending a good hour on cable management I still can't get it to seat down all the way against the mobo tray.
I've made it about as thin as I can without breaking it (again). If you look close you can see where it broke clean along a seam. It actually makes it easier to install in two pieces. We'll see if I can get it any better later.


I need an 800mm version


I'll try not to go overboard with the res pics. It's just so pleasing to the eye and so much fun to shoot.






Nice blue glow.


I knew that if you extend the wires on cfl's they'd get dim. I was unaware that was the case if you extended the power wire on the other side of the converter?
My guess is it's just not as bright with the stain on the wood. It practically glowed red through the grain of the wood before and cast twice as much light.


















I should get the order made for the last of the fittings tomorrow. So we'll see what I can muster up in the next week while we wait for those.

Until next time space cowboys!

hmmm.... could you just jack up the top pabnel of the tabel by a centimeter to give clearance? Use lighted acrylic all around as the "filler" material?

I've considered it. That was my initial idea to keep the tabletop from rubbing on the frame. In the end I went with the rollers because they were so much cheaper. We'll see. It might look nice with a lit acrylic band around it. Cost is the only problem there. As it is I'll be eating Ramen for a couple months to get these last few fittings tomorrow heh. I still plan on using the router but we could always incorporate the acrylic later.
