    Gets better and better! Love the top vents, I can still tell it's a 600t and that's an achievement in itself!

    what stops the res from leaking? after all you've drilled straight through the side of it and stuck a shaft in the hole. Am i missing something here?

    The shaft is fixed, isn't it? The actual paddles are connected to a transparent tube sleeved over the red shaft. If the shaft is fixed in place presumably it's been sealed with glue.

    It's great to see this case shrinking side of modding when done perfect & I bet it's a fair modding challenge to do to this level of perfection, nice paint job too excellent work guys :clap::thumb:.

    This is an amazing mod! Very nice to see an ITX version of this case. Maybe it'll get Corsair's attention :)

    In my mind , if you have taken a bicolor , it would have been better . However ,I also like orange and it's a great job :thumb:

    thx a lot m8´s!!

    yeah, i know what you mean, we already decided that we´re going to add a nice airbrushed detail to the sidepanel without the window...



    After 6 weeks with nearly no progress, today we got an update!!!:clap:

    But first i want to send a big Thank you!!! to Aqua Tuning for their support & help :clap:
    Because, yesterday we got the needed watercooling parts for this mod, so that we finally can continue :thumb:

    [​IMG]


    Today we started with the midplate which we already had prepared, we had to make a few cuts, so that we can place the Pump inside the cover, beside that we also mounted the Radiator in the Front of the Case and tested where we´re going to mount the Reservoir.
