    Hi all :D

    just want to share our newest project with you!

    It will be build upon a Coolermaster Cosmos S....i think it will take some time to finish it...but here are the first pictures....

    First we removed the Mesh from the Sidepanel and put it a piece of smoke grey plexiglas

    then we started to build a CPU Cooler for this System...

    and we already made the first cuts into some plexi panels which will later be screwed to the sidepanel....

    what exactly is your CPU cooler made of? just plexi?? Or is there a copper base I cant see?

    Maybe a silly question, but is that polyester casting resin? The cooler looks very nice.

    Excellent work on the CPU water block. I really like the cut plexi for the side panel.

    I like!:D
    I'm worried about all the air bubbles in your waterblock seams. You could still have a leak that shows up when you add pressure. It's better to apply the glue, then seat the part in cases like this. The problem is that it makes a mess when the excess solvent gets squished out.

    thanks a lot! always like to hear that!:D

    and don´t worry about the "bubbles"....i know they don´t look very nice but they cannot cause problems (all in safe areas)....the problem with our solvent is that it is much thinner then water (do you know the thin version of acryfix ? i don´t remember the right number atm) so we have to use a squirt with a small needle which always tooks some time to apply......but the solvent is very fast hardening so you have to hurry a lot....because in the drying period the solvent needs some pressure....to get 100% clear (and that is what you can see - not enough pressure because we were to late with the pressure on the outer edges)

    but on the other side it is a really great solvent because you only need to glue a little bit from it along the joining edges and its capillary effect makes the rest.....

    I know what you are talking about. ;) You can also get a better capillary effect if you sand one surface with 150 grit.
    In my opinion you don't need to add pressure on small parts. I haven't seen a difference yet in my seams.

    thanks a lot for all of your comments!!!

    today we polished the first plexi panel for the side panels.....it´s not 100% done but that comes within the next days......
    here you can see how it will later be placed on the side

    then we decided to add a small TFT Display to the front .....

    [​IMG]


    like you see it fits in nearly perfect only a little bit in the height is missing....so that we cut out a small plexi piece which will fit in there....
