    How did you connect the peice that was the plastic in the front bottom? It looks like with a bracket?
    What is that on the backside?

    I was so happy to find this as I am planning a flipped haf 912 mod also

    Hans Rudolf "Ruedi" Giger passed away today. The Godfather of Biomechanical art and Xenomorph from ALIEN movie series

    February 2, 1940 – May 12, 2014

    Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H._R._Giger

    Those of you who are close friends or have followed my work, know I'm a longtime fan of HR Giger.  This project was inspired by him. It has gone through many changes over the past 7 years due to lack of time, or maybe I just never wanted the journey to end. Coincidentally before my friend told me about HR Giger’s passing this morning, I was talking with Bitfenix about sponsoring my project with a new Fury Power Supply. My good friend, EEL Ambiense and I had already been planning a build in anticipation of the ALIEN movie inspired game "Alien Isolation" coming out this fall. We both agreed that we needed to finish our personal projects before starting this joint venture. Hearing this news today only validated that it’s the right time to get THIS build finished!

    BNEG, it's still hard to believe hes gone...

    Giger's recent passing has made this project now a priority for me. I've given myself a deadline of next Sunday to have it finished. I've got Intel 1155, i7 3770, 3.5 GHz CPU installed now, and it will be cooled by Swiftech's new Apogee XL waterblock. My good friend EEL Ambiense has offered to create a new H.R. GIGER inspired cover plate for the Apogee XL. We're still debating about the design... I just may go with "H.R. GIGER, 1940 - 2014", since this has become a tribute build to him.

    I agree.

    Keep it simple.

    Thank you for kind words and encouragement guys!

    Working on a bracket this afternoon for mounting the 360GTX radiator. For CPU loop, I'm using Black Ice Nemesis 120 GTX Radiator, mounted in the top, which is actually the rear exhaust fan hole. I rotated the Cooler Master HAF 912 chassis 90 degrees. It has a Black anodized Overkill 120mm Fan Ring mounted over it.

    Good to see you finishing this build, couldn't think of a more fitting time.

    First found out he had passed when I was on D.A the other day. Sad news, indeed. The art world will miss him.

    @Fanatic, agreed, I hope it's motivating other fans to create things in honor of him.

    @Jim, Wow, need to see more that that!

    @Cheaps, yesterday was good day for work, and I like where it's going, too!

    Ditching the front HD for this Stainless Steel reservoir, made by Cheapskate for the Lanboy Apocalypse build from 4 years ago... This is for the Crossfire GPU liquid loop. To hold the res, I'm using this vented anodized aluminum panel I cannibalized from NZXT Khaos full tower few years ago. I will be mounting Black plastic flexible conduit between the fins.
