    Good evening guys! I continue with the liquid cooling system.

    A little test of the psu and vga on the htpc.

    I must cut a piece of the vga because it hurts the rear inox panel of the motherboard.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the now it comes the best.
    There's a little problem: the weight of the vga and its waterblock, is very high and the pci-ex connector can't only hold them. I have an idea: make a little steel bar to hold them.

    The steel bar was thread because I need to hold them to the panel.

    Here I am with some processing.
    I'm running out, this week will come the blue liquid to the second loop and I hope in a short time the processor i7-3770K, sponsored by PcHunter.
    I am finishing around the sleeve and the internal wiring, as well as the arrangement of all cables. I have yet to realize the window on the door and the backplate for the VGA with backlight.
    Here's to you, however, that today I made with my own hands.
    These two small panels will serve as a mask to cover an outer bay unused in the controller Cooler Master and the other larger, however, as the area Aquaero inner cover to mask a little 'cables. In the coming days a coat of primer and then off of matte black. I think it will be ready for the weekend.
    Photossss!!!

    Yeah! I'm back!

    My friend Massimo, owner of PcHunter, give me this cpu for sponsor!! It's an i7-3770k.

    Aquacomputer that sponsored me Aquaero 5 XT, a lot of accessories and waterblock of the GTX680, give me this five bottles of blu additive!

    For the cpu loop you have to wait some days, because I'm looking for a good mix colours with Mayhems products, to obtain grey coolant.

    These are the two panels that I cutted some days ago. I paint them with matt black.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    SSD's sata cable sleeved.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I used a hole in the support of poweradjust to fix status led of Aquaero, that shows if there's a problem in the loop.

    [​IMG]

    Here the sata cable fixed.

    We are running out ... Today I prepared the basis for providing energy to all the fans and bring back all'Aquaero two channels, one that manages the fan cooler three fans and the rear and the other to handle the four fans of the four fans and the one on the lower right side front interior.
    Suitably insulated with silicone rubber attached to the base with itself and with double-sided tape to the bottom of the case, in a hardly visible from the outside.
    In the first picture you can also see where I'll place the base for the power supplies. I also installed a button to turn on or turn off all interior lighting.
    And some pictures of general application to supplement the more...

    Here I am guys.
    In these photos I will describe the work on the bulkhead to install a windows.
    First of all, I ran the cut, I put the putty and painted black.
    Fixed to the frame, the next step will be to attach the plexi on the bulkhead.

    Let the realization of the circuit in order to dim the lighting system.
    The requirement was to be able to vary the intensity of the lights, then according to the following scheme and the invaluable assistance of Ciskopa (TechArena), I made this circuit with NE555.

    Here you are!
    The backplate is made of iron, painted with primer, two coats of black RAL 9005, and a final coat of clear gloss.
    The plexiglass was cut and polished by hand.
