    Me like!
    Gotta ask, though. Is the backplate pipe a heatpipe, or just a dead-end extension of the loop?
    -NVM, It must be a heatpipe.

    That design looks great!

    And I agree that is one of the most beautiful waterblocks ever made.

    Good luck on this build. Everything you make I really like!

    Thanks Hukkel!
    :thumb:

    I made a quick and dirty 'playdoh model' ,rather than the full assembly of individual panels that i prefer to do, to have a look at how it fits and looks.

    I like where this is headed. That bay panelling looks excellent, B! Will you make a custom res for it as well?

    I wont be doing the machine work,thats going out to PARVUM,Nate or Tom at Chilled PC.
    I have designed the res with a bolt on front face but after seeing SEBARs results with a fully bonded res,i may try that myself.

    Don't forget MWM ;)
    They are great at prototyping and watercooling.

    i love those aquacomputer blocks, they're just gorgeous. The front panel res-controller combo looks phenomenal. You could make the back panel of the res from alu block, machined to resemble the block (or other design) and then plated to match. might add a considerable sum to the cost though.

    Thats a swish idea Crappy,TO SOLIDWORKS!!!

    Fanx!



    Just got back from i 49,good to see Tom and Sub there along with the Specialtech forum guys,Coolmiester,Namron and the hammer flinger Skully,plus the PARVUM guys (you should see the cases they dont show the world...)

    Anyway...
    I want to fill that gap under the res,I think a touch screen will do very nicely..this one to be precise.
    http://www.lilliputuk.com/monitors/open-frame/of701/

    I will lose around 5mm around the sides and bottom of the screen but i can just resize the display to suit.

    Grills cut in the doors to match the existing S3 slotwork.

    My hand cant heal fast enough im telling you.

    Its gorgeousness just compels you to use it. I found myself instantly redrawing my designs around it.
