    Nice work. Especially on the second one.

    The only way I can think of improving it would be to add a window, but that is my opinion.

    Seriously, good work

    Im loving these 2 res's. especially as they are your first attempt. Id love to have the top one. Have a look at how much postage is to the UK.

    I dont think ill use it as a res though quite yet, think i might use it as a feature and then do something with it later. As we talked about briefly on msn yesterday.

    Loving this though, i think a window in either of the res's would be amazing......

    Love the alu one, shame it is alu though. God dammed corrosion lol.

    If you make any more perhaps think about making them smaller, 30cm is very large for a res and wouldn't fit in most conventional cases, you could feed 3 loops off the alu one. OMG @ 1.5L lol.

    You have to love PVC. It's dirt cheap an plentiful. That could use a little sanding, though.

    It's been a long time since I've seen heavy use of PVC on a casemod...

    They don't look bad for your first res

    I like the aluminum one, maybe you should fill in and smooth out the caps

    Ah true lol, well I did post it at 2am lol. Still that thing is huge lol. My entire loop with duel rads, CPU block, GPU block, pump and res holds around about 1.3-1.4L.

    DonT-FeaR,

    Since you plucked your head into my log, I thought i'd do the same for you. And I must say that your 2nd res is absolutely smashing! Very well done. Gives me a cool idea for an all-aluminim case, where everything that can be is brushed aluminum.
