    Also i designed a small custom DDC reservoir.

    GPU is on the backside and supported up to 328mm.

    Parts a now in the making !

    Loving your Facebook posts, but nothing better than following a build log :thumb: Looking great so far, can't wait to see real metal come to life.

    There's a passing similarity to something I'm working on too, so when I start Asteria Reprise in the new year, honestly I didn't copy you :D

    Is that a 10mm radius in the main body corners? How do you intend to make those bends?

    Blimey, how are you achieving that then? Renders do hide seams between pieces so I can't work out where you're joining sections together. If you're milling corners then the renders come across as a huge unibody frame milled from 15cm thick stock :jawdrop:

    Lovely. The only problem would be having the pump up so high. With that and the limited reservoir, it will be hell to bleed.

    The billet required for this :eeek: Your talking hundreds of dollars in raw material alone. I think impossible to machine due to depth of cuts and vibrations/harmonics but REALLY want to see this happen! :rock: Good luck my man!

    Pretty. I thought for a second you found a source for 1/4" mirror plex.
    @MaximumBubbleMods - I suspect he's going to round over some 1" x 3/4" bar and add some insets for panel mating.

    Lovely pump top. :D You should opt for stainless steel screws. You can sand the heads flat and polish them.

    Cool design, and great renderings. Did you flame polish that res after CNC'ing?
    You've selected the Case Mod category rather than the Scratch build one btw.
