Looks good. Get a handfile and smooth out those edges. It will look a lot better and more professional. I get a medium and a fine grit. I wouldn't go the coarse grit since it might take off more than you want. Smooth it out and it will look great! Keep up the good work.

Yea, I do the same, but only if the edges are really rough. The dremel can take a lot off so you want to use that as little as possible. I am not seeing straight edges. Hand filing is definitely the way to go.

True...


If I trim the sides even more, the plastic moling will be in the way of the screws. Maybe I should do some adjustments.

Sorry guys it took so long. I was only working on my spare time everyday. Today I did a lot of progress.

-I was able to dremel out the top so I could mount my triple rad
-Dremel the motherboard tray for easy CPU block mounting
-Gut out 25mm fans to become shrouds
-install fans and shrouds on the rad
-Mount rad with fans and shrouds in the case
-Mount the res

I had to use 12 inch 6-32 screws and cut them with my pliers. Cutting the screws was already a PITA but trying to put the knot is the worst PITA I've experienced during this WC/mod project because when I cut the 12 inch screws, the thread was getting messed up. I had to use 12 inch screw bec. I did not want to order 3 inch screws from sidewindercomputers and wait for it.

But after seeing the rad mounted in the case I felt so much better.

Now where do you guys think I should mount the pump? Any suggestions? Please see the pics for details.

So here we go:

Grrrr...most of the pictures are not showing up.

I will be posting some more cutting pics that I did a few days ago. I have just been stuck doing other stuff so I could not make any progress with my build.

Awsome!!
I'll be watching this build


I want some Tygon tubing, DD fat boys and XSPC pump acryl top, that pump looks alot better than the mcp655.
Hehe.. I am using Masterkleer 7/16 ID..
I love the DD fatboys. They look fantastic. I have both 655 and 350 right now, but I chose the 350 jsut because I could place it in a better position compared to my 655. Also somehow when I used Martin's flow rate estimator the MCP350 w/ XSPC top is better than the MCP655 by around 0.50 GPM if I remeber it right.

The head pressure on the 350 is stronger than the D5 so if you have a restrictive loop then the 350 makes out. If you have a relatively free flowing non-restrictive loop the 655 makes out a little faster. Speed vs Power.

Yup Yup...

I am going to have a D-tek Fuzion v2, MCR320, MCR res v1, and possibly an MCW60 v2. I think these components are not that restrictive, but I still like how the MCP350 w/ XSPC top looks like
hehe.. Better positioning too!

The 655 is just a little big in size for me in this wc loop.. hehehe

Thanks!!
