wow... great mod the copper tubes look great :P
not to mention the mid plates. one thing i didn't like to see was the nylon nuts fixing the reservoir. I would have like to see it fixed with screws. or at least so that you couldn't see the threaded rods.

I agree with Sludge, I think nickle plating is a silly idea. Copper is so gorgeous when polished, I don't know why you would cover it up. To each his own though. GL with the rest of the mod mate!

Your going to make me break down one of these days and find some 12mm OD copper as sweet as that looks.

As sweet as that copper looks, with all of the chrome fittings, I can see why you would nickel plate the tubing. It will look incredible once done and polished.

I'd say it would look great either way.

About the midplate.

aren't you goint to reinforce that? using a alu corner would do the trick. or cutting the rest of the original midplate and fixing it to the plexi.

Well atm there is no need at it. There is no pressure atm on the mid plate eater from the mobo tray or the HDD stand they all hang in the side of the case.

I was wondering how much additional wall thickness the nickel plating will add.
Is it thick enough to be a concern fitting into your connectors?
