    Yes, I really think it is.
    Beautiful.
    Like Chesterton says every story has to have an end to be most meaningful.


    A doubt. I read all the thread at once, after having read it since its beggining, while you were working on it.
    The first time I read, I understood little as I did not maintain much order in my reading. Now, I first read the front page article so I had an understanding of the whole work and then details came in as I read the thread, but one thing I didn't understand; finally how did the loop go and wich tubes go where?; in my monitor pictures look dark and I cannot see them very well.

    Well you really forged your dreams till we touched them (well not me but you, yourself are touching one of them)

    jhanlon303: no plans at all right now. :) Taking a break.

    Thanks for the kind words dream caster.

    The loop goes something like this: Pumps->PA 120.2 Radiator->(split to ram and motherboard chips and 120.1 Radiator)->CPU->GPU->(re-join with other loop)->Reservoir->Pumps

    No worries M8, it's sorted! :)
    Currently I'm working on the waterblock for my 8800Gts, and it's gonna be... Well... I imagined "Breath taking" but I'm probably gonna settle for "Incredible" ;)
    6 hours of designing, and I'm only just done with the back of it... Takes time to get to perfektion... But you, of all people, knows that! :)

    Angel OD: Cant wait to see the block! :D

    Appreciate it smoothy. :)

    I bolted the rad to the frame by threading the already existing holes: and using coutersunk M3 bolts so that the door still closes.

    aah i see now. i'm using an aqua computer 240 xt radiator, which does not have holes on the side. i thought you had fabricated some sort of frame to attach to the front of the rad, and then bend through 90 degrees to line up to those holes. this sounds like what im going to have to do....

    by the way your work has been attracting views here: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=4525&st=640

    i havent started one for mine yet as im still planning really (i have been for over 2 years lol) but i have posted bits and bobs in the generic how to fit a pc in a g5 case thread. i will start one eventually. it will be nothing like yours im afraid, as in that i want to try and keep it original from the outside.

    I hope somebody here can help me. I am using an aquastream xt in my build and due to a little optimistic measuring from yours truly it won't fit where I intended. So my question to all your kind people is: can I mount this pump upside down? Will it have any ill effects not being at the lowest point in my loop?

    Thanks

    smoothy, if you head over to aqua-computer there is an 'english language' forum. The question might have already been asked, or otherwise just register and post. They are pretty good at getting back to you quickly.

    Awsome job Cyprio :) Truly cool. I've just started my own G5 mod. Almost seems like there is no easy solution to the motherboard tray/rearside of the case issue. Must be done the hard way if tis gonna look smooth.
