    Sorry for my langage..
    /!\ Google translate /!\

    Hi everyone!

    As stated in the title, this mod is a challenge, but not a mod itself.

    That is, with a base of a small box, it must be able to return
    a complete water cooling system, and especially a 2x120 mm radiator!
    (And even a separate pump and reservoir, ie not only 1 or bay ..).

    That's the short explanation of the challenges.

    Regarding the photos that follow are made in light camcorder fisheye.
    The quality is not totally to appointment.

    But to reassure you that the final picture will follow (;!

    This box will be put up for sale once completed, our site.

    (Ps: If you participated in the topic, it is that we can do a price ..)!

    We open this topic so that completion ends .. Sorry about that ..
    But it remains all the same a few steps, and the pictures will not succeed in all
    same time anyway :)

    For future's Mod (Mod's challenges, not like here) I think we'll
    subjects from the beginning to make enjoy this rich forum.

    This is the part of the team, we thank you for your interest in this subject and
    has your participation in it.

    I leave you with pictures,
    see you soon,

    Bertrand!

    Not bad at all. But masking tape and fine pencils make cutting more precise.

    Comme je disais, oublie le marker gras, et passe direct au scotch de masquage et au stylo a pointe fine pour tes tracés, soit marque directement les pièces avec une pointe a tracer.

    Think twice, cut once, tout ça :)

    Hello, thank you.

    To mark no problem, I used to work like that. I'm a line and I cut off on the inside. So it is also clear that a small line;)

    Thank you, soon more pictures:)

    Hello.

    This weekend painting was planned but due to bad weather I have not done ..

    Tomorrow I hope it will be less wet (and even some of the sun be? Who knows ..)

    So I had time to go and buy two batteries for my camera.
    Finally! Since the time .. :)

    By cons still a little sorry if some are blurry .. : (But that I remade a remote shutter release for my Pentax.

    These are just small components that go into this box to test, nothing else.

    Thank you to you for your comments.

    Soon new pictures (sharper .. I hope..) And after the Mod - challenge.

    Ps. Its not "Carrot you d l'o" La carotte d l'o comes from La carotte dans l'oreille <- it just was too long for this forum, so i had to shorten it. :)

    I'll be watching.
