    Here are more pictures of the front...

    In this chapter we're going to disassemble the lightning machine to see how we are going to connect that to the PSU and move the controller to the front of the case.

    The Storm Cage ver. 2.0
    The first design was nice but it didn't let the air from the 2x 140mm fans go into the cage to create the chaos I was expecting so I decided to cut the front and add something I found at a local 0.99 cent store.

    - Controlling Mother Nature
    - Temp Test



    Initial Temp 70F (Warm water was used to make this Test)
    15 Min (After): 68F
    30 Min (After): 67.5F
    45 Min (After): 67.1F

    Without any special setting or Hardware, just the The Storm Cage, the Pump and the NMC CPU Water Block.

    So now I'll explain how the Storm Cage Works...

    First it takes the water from the bottom of the Cage and distributes it through the loop... Then it hit the Rain Chamber where the water goes down as drops... then this drops are cool down by the strong winds from the 2x 140mm Fan in the front...

    So is like having Mother Nature inside a Computer Case. I can adjust the rain frequency and the wind velocity so I can control the Storm inside the Cage...

    Hopefully that make sense to all of you!!!

    So essentially the "Storm Cage" is just a added feature of a reservoir with the fans blowing into the water that is sprayed over back into the loop. I GEDDIT! :idea:

    Correct if I'm wrong

    Awesome job mate, seems like your work likes to revolve around water. :D
