I will post some "good" pictures of the 1800 this weekend in the Extreme Cooling section. It can use 15-120mm fans, but (IMO) that would be real-overkill. No fans are required with that "BigBoy"....

Well I think there is considerably more in stock than shows at their site ATM. My order had over 30 separate line items with varying quantities on each item. I think it is taking a while to get the items on the website because he usually likes to shoot his own photos instead of relying on stock A-C pics and the pages show considerably more info visually and in writing.

I don't know how often you venture over to the [H]ardForum A-C thread, but there is more info over there on what might or might not be in stock. There are also XT pics up as well.

Help yourself. It's all sitting on the shelves waiting to jump in the next UPS truck going to your house.

Great mod modsquad. One quick question. Are you using a chipset block 'cause I can't find it on any of the pics (I might have missed it though). I'm thinking about using the same CPU bl;ock but can't find a chipset cooler that would match it or at least be similar

Aqua Computer's Twinplex... They don't make a "core" style chipset cooler (like the Evo), but it's based around their Cuplex design which is a simple maze. MS has a Cuplex Evo which is made by Aqua Computer as well, but uses a different design style. You won't find a core style chipset cooler though.

Crap they should make one. That would be an awesome looking combo.

Switches & Reservoir Mod

Months and months ago I installed these two rocker switches and a 5mm LED running light to control the case lighting.

As I have done so many times, I changed my mind about the rocker switches. I will be using two toggle switches to control lighting.
The hardware for my "vandal-toggle" switch.

The mounting ring for the toggle is from a Bulgin Vandal switch.

Love or hate the look, they are one of a kind.
Wiring, nothing special. Wired inline with the 25" Molex extension cables I made up a few weeks ago.



Please Note: I only purchased and installed one switch, I wanted to see how the built-in LED would look..





I like the look. I will order another switch to finish-off the installation.
Up next the reservoir mod. A few pages back, we talked about a RED acrylic cover plate for the Innovatek reservoir. The problem being, cutting a perfect circle that small from acrylic is difficult. I got a hold of Chris at Cutting Edge Case Mods being the generous man he is, he donated two in order to help me finish the case.
Using the stock cover as a template, I marked the mounting holes on the new red one.



I re-installed the two covers on the reservoir using low-profile hexhead bolts.



I lowered the reservoir down into the case so the red acrylic cover would sit flush with the top of the case. This ended up being EZ. The thickness of the stock reservoir mounting bracket (which I was not using) mounted inside the case plus the thickness of the case itself is "just-about" right.

I also changed-out the stock res. bolts for more of the low-profile type.

The only drawback to a colored reservoir cover like this is it is difficult to see your H20 level. I think the LED in the bottom of the res. will cure that problem. I did not get that far, so we will find out. If not Aqua-Computer is "said" to be ready to release there tubemeter.

It is a liquid level sensor for your reservoir which will be powered by the AquaBus on there Aquaero displays..Pretty cool
That's it for this "go-around"..
MS

No I can't figure out what Pitbull is on either

Needless to say the detail just keeps on coming - this project really is fantastic Just don't take too long or you'll get no use from the investment in parts before the need to upgrade bites you

Wow, great work! That aquatube h2o meter is a sweet idea... hope they get on it soon!

Thing is that you've got the FoM and not the AT, and they use different threads. Not sure whether you actively realized that, but regardless you'd have to pick up an appropriate adaptor.

Switch is very different, extremely unique. Well done!

Yes. I think AlphaCool has the fitting I would need.
