Thought it would be appropriate to have my first post and introduction to these forums as a build log.
I'm calling the build 1N5P1R3. I'm naming it so because I have been inspired from many FT02 builds arround the modding community, and I just love names in 1337 5P34k.
I have begun ordering parts and in the comming weeks will begin posting pictures of progress (sorry in advanced, iPhone 4 cammera).
I have no ETA for completion of this build, I am doing it as $$$ becomes available.
Durring the meantime; here are some pics of builds which I am basing much of my build off of.

idef1x's Build (hardforum.com)
I'll be removing the hard drive cage entierly to make room for the pumps and reservoir. I'll also be putting a Lian Li hotswap HDD cage in through the sides of the 5.25" bay mounts. I plan on keeping the stock dustfilter arangement, so I'm gonna have to do alot of chopping, and it will be a tight fit. Gonna see what I can do about adding a fillport and drainport to this system; I think that will help differentiate my build from others. I havn't seen it implemented in the way I'm gonna go about it.
