Sponsor update

I also want to welcome a great sponsor for this build .... Highflow
Given the great choice of products, I have choosen some nice stuff.



Always nice to a Highflow package, Thank you Freddy!!!

First two beautifull reservoirs. The EK-Multioption RES X2 - 250 Advanced





Some Tygon R3603 - HighFlow - 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD - Clear tube





And nine great NorthQ 120MM 3711RL Silent Tornado fans





Also a small 80MM NorthQ 3709RL Silent Tornado



Playing with the fans





I'm very satisfied with the fans, They will look perfect in this build



And last 2x Acryl Paneel - UV Rood / Transparant - 500x500mm





Once everything unpacked, it's modding time. Cut a piece of red acrylic and cut a hole in it for a tube



In the black acrylic I have cut 2 holes with the size of the reservoirs cut to keep them in place





And cut a little piece for a fillport



Two fillports for the hdd cooler with a little touch of red



Playing with the tubes and of course placed the fans









Also placed the reservoirs with some BP links (these will be black)



After a bit of measuring and other small things, made the aluminum plate black



And placed everything back









Again connected the tubes







And two pics how one side stands now .... on to the next

Hm... I'm quite torn.

See, all Kier-builds of late have had those dead straight Bitspower crystal links, straight tubing or simply used straight acrylic pipes.

This one has tubes that bend. I definately have to get used to you now doing what most of us do.

I see straight tubing as part of you and your "brand"

IMO straight tubing is whats setting your mods apart from the crowd

Keep doing it, innovate it maybe, but keep the core.
I look forward getting on with my own M8 again, and will be giving you some competition with it

Thank you Jeff











So after some thinking and some urging of fellow modders I decided to do everything straight. It's more work ... but I'm in no hurry







Also a nice idea I have seen in another build is the tilted mobo. Made the back plate again with 2mm aluminum, and marked the shape of the backtray



Sawing, drilling and Filing



Placed the original mobo tray, pasted black vinyl again to get it black. Maybe a bit lazy but this is so easy, quick, scratch resistant, inexpensive and just the right color.

The tilted mobo



















Missing something ... red I think. therefore entirely dismantled the backplate and cut a red plate







And everything reassembled, this time with countersunk m3 bolts. Rivets are unfortunately too short now





Nice touch... inside is red now



And placed it. Now with some daylight pics





Placed NorthQ fans in front instead of the Turbine masters



And received some nice red hardware



An made an additional air outlet​​. Will place mesh later.



Furthermore beeing busy with the acrylic pipe, to get this as straight as possible. Just like the other side, cut a piece of aluminum with fanhole



Made it black and cut and placed a piece of red acrylic. Placed a loose tube for size and see if it's straight





And fits nicely along the mobo tray



And the weekend is over ... unfortunately. More Next week

im finding it hard feeling this build, its feeling very same old same old, i love the older projects but this and a few others most notably CM2 dont seem to have any heart to them , just "jobs". the craftsmanship is s ever excelent

Do you think that it has stoped being a fun hobby and turned in to a 9-5 job?

Sorry to hear, Any build that I make is without Compromise and has all of my attention, not just a "job". I want to see for myself what I can do with different cases...and share it

It's definitely still a hobby and is just something I like to do

Damn thats some nice tubing you used there, I always wanted to try it but I'm a little offset by the price of all the fittings

What fittings did you use? Quick SLI connectors to plug the arcyl pipes into?
