    Update!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A new update with nice progress. First I made a cover of acrylic 5mm to keep the focus on the mobo.
    And I used the M8 box for cable entry from the back for a nice effect

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed some LEDs

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And more LEDs

    [​IMG]

    Then came great packages from EKWB and Corsair

    Beautiful memory: the Corsair Vengeance (CMSX16GX3M2A1600C10)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A great block for my GTX780. De EK-FC780 GTX Ti

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And a backplate

    [​IMG]

    Once installed...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed and looks perfect

    [​IMG]

    Received 4 new Corsair SSDs, placed and made some SATA power cables.

    [​IMG]

    The Corsair Force Series™ LX 128GB SATA 3 6Gb/s

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everything fits like I want, so started with the loop.

    [​IMG]

    Placed the reservoir again, but now with a drain port attached to it.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The radiator I'm going to use is a EK-CoolStream PE 240

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With Corsair AF120-LED Quiet Edition red fans:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed like this

    [​IMG]

    And a nice shot to finish this update.

    As for the vertical supports, I think it looks gorgeous just like this:
    [​IMG]

    One corner (dark) red, three grey. The case is very symmetrical, and a little asymmetrical touch would be very nice.

    Update!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It took a while, but here's a new update.
    First special thanks goes to Corsair for sending a great game gear set

    [​IMG]

    Among this a great keyboard. the Corsair Vengeance® K70 Anodized Black — Cherry MX Brown

    [​IMG]

    Super nice keyboard

    [​IMG]

    Swap the buttons is first thing to do

    [​IMG]

    Looks pretty sexy

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also there was a great dual-sided Gaming Mouse Mat MM600

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More about this set later!

    We left off with connecting the rigid tubing. Connected the CPU with right angles going down.

    [​IMG]

    Which comes out by the radiator and from here it goes to the GPU.

    [​IMG]

    Going from right to left

    [​IMG]

    And so comes out to the left from the GPU while the right goes to the pump.

    [​IMG]

    On the right side also a link from the radiator to the inlet reservoir and created a fill port from the middle inlet reservoir. The lower outlet from the reservoir is going to the pump inlet.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then it was time to fill it with my favorite red: Mayhems Pastel Red

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Testing went well, so next: Small adjustment + final photo shoot.

    [​IMG]

    Happy new year my modding friends!!!

    Update!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    A small update in this old year before I post the final shoot update in the new year

    The front was missing something so I have placed some acrylic pieces.
    First played with the amount of the pieces, to see what is best.

    [​IMG]

    3 layers connecting nicely against the aquatube.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Nice, but think 3 is to much.

    [​IMG]

    After some sawing, filing, drilling, tapping screws, this is the result

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the build is finished !!! But first... still have two great products left from the Corsair game package:

    The beautiful Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    En last but not least, a perfect Corsair Raptor HS40 7.1 Gaming Headset

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Again thank you so much Corsair for this great game gear

    Back to the build .... After all stuff installed, it is ready for use, and ready for the final photo shoot :)

    [​IMG]

    Till next year with the final photo shoot!!! :thumb:

    This is a really cool project!
    I love the weird twist of the components and the way they are fused together. The end result is spectacular in its own way... Its just not like any other project i have seen - in a very good way!

    Happy new year everyone
