    I read throughout the whole log from page one to 26 and I simply love this case. If I have the time and money next year I want to make a copy of the design, if i may...

    Maybe one day when I've made a few more :thumb:

    Ooo I hadn't thought of that! I'll have a play and see how it looks, wont be for a while though, times are hard this close to Christmas :p

    Thanks Fabou

    Cheers mate

    Indeed Attila, I never would have imagined such a great strong finish to come from Halfords (UK car supplies etc) own brand rattle cans!

    Thank you Roboduck :)

    I have no objection to this as long as credit is given :) One of the reasons I decided to log the build was to hopefully inspire people into creating their own projects :rock:

    Thanks Hans, more shots incoming once the hardware is in place :D

    nom nom nom :eek: :lol:

    :hip: :clap:

    ----

    Well I just arrived back after a 4 hour journey so with any luck this coffee will give me the energy to start moving the hardware across. The plan is to move the hardware today and then install the WC tomorrow leaving a couple of days after Christmas for the finishing touches.

    Thank you for all the comments and the continued support <3

    ROFL! I laughed at Razer's comment then Waynio's response just put me over the edge and into a true "ROFL" moment lol

    On a more serious note all the hardware in and I'm trying to sweet talk the wife into letting my use her new flip HD cam for a short video before the water cooling gets installed :)

    Just thought I'd let you all know that Evo is nearly ready for final pictures once I find the time to clean and fill the loop. Had a bit of a disaster with the cathodes randomly failing which has stunted the progress but I've ordered some new ones which should be here tomorrow :)
    All done by the weekend if Mr postman is feeling friendly :D

    Thanks for you patience <3

    This is a awesome build I love the creativity and attention to detail. :D I dont know if its already been asked but where did you get your templates for you mock-ups and to drill holes with? Keep up the great work.

    Thanks Nigel, the whole top panel does seem to be a love/hate kind of thing :)

    Thank you Mechh69 :) the templates are a mixture of self created ones using sketchup and a lot of google hunting, just drop me a PM if your interested in any and I'll see if I still have them

    IT is beautiful, nice clean look, can't wait to see it with everything hooked up and running.

    PS: How do you edit the thread name to say something like UPDATE (date)
