    +1 to that .

    Everything looks fantastic man as always but I worry about the temps too.
    If you take in count the custom blocks and the radiator fans spacing and the lack of shrouds and frame, the performance lack will be big IMHO. If you are not going to overclock then I guess you will be fine!

    Keep up the awesome quality of work buddy! :thumb:

    Thanks for the replies everyone. :thumb:

    You guys really have to wait a while. I did mention that the rad assembly will fit into it's own separate compartment. There wont be any 'leakage'. :D

    Yet more awesome work from Attila :) Can't wait for more.

    I'd be having words with Coolermaster if i were you. Those fans looks suspiciously similar to something from your previous mod wouldn't you say ;) :lol:

    Looks great so far. :thumb:
    Gotta hate having to redo the GPU block though.

    Also, if you've powered on/ played with those fans, how do you like them?
    I've been thinking those would be great to replace what I have now.

    Looking to dominate the CM contest now too?:D

    Those fans do look neat. I can see why you would go for them.
    I could never figure out how some people can keep a super-clean garage like that. Mine looks like a car was driven through the back wall. -Oh, wait... the previous owners did that, like, three times.:lol:

    Actually, now that you mention it, I don't know. It sure would have been handy.

    Thanks. You know these fan blades would have looked so much better in the bodies I made for Na'ir. More 'turbine' like. Just a bit late. :hehe:

    Thanks. No, I haven't but what I've read suggests they are well suited to the placement.

    :hehe:

    I've looked into the CM contest but there's no way I can meet the deadline. I may not even finish this year. :eeek:

    You don't need to finish anything. We just want to keep reading all of your mind boggling updates for many more years :)

    I know you've probably already gone too far with the new block to bother, but would This work?

    the cable sticks straight out the back so you shouldn't have any problems with the cable interfering with the water block.

    Hey, by using a PCI-E extension cable, you have some more cables to sleeve, haha. A sleeved PCI-E extension cable... wouldn't that be a first?

    Here are a few photo's of the (largely) completed CPU block. Please note this is only a test/pic fitting so the retaining bracket is not used here. For more info on how this was made, see here.

    The idea at the moment is to anodise these blocks blue. :hip:
    Now to the GPU block. This could take a while. :eeek:

    Looking absolutely fabulous! :blush:

    However, if I was to access same hardware and waterblocks and was designing a small case,
    I'd move the GPU ontop of the CPU - to safe space. :thumb: :rock:

    Hey, Attila - the CPU block looks really good, but how about having those waterblocks anodized blue to match the MOBO and the RAM?

    That would mean making a double-sided waterblock! :eeek:

    I commend this idea to the house.:thumb:
