    I like it. The screws help give it an industrial look. If I ever go with a custom-built watercooling setup, I might mount my reservior on top like that too.

    Love the overall look, but those black screws screwed the visual. Perhaps some inox allen?...

    The juxtaposition of the rectilinear with the curvaceous parts doesn't work. IMHO

    P.S. Still a startling piece of "art"

    Not cardboard, maybe brass. That way it would avoid galvanic corrosion.

    Pweeetty!

    I can see what you went for with the black screws but unfortunately there are too many of them, and it spoils the effect (I assume) you were going for. Other than that it's beautiful. Well done. :thumb:

    Some people love to complain. I bet the complainers all have un-modded cases.

    Pretty good for a scratch build especially considering it's a first attempt and the time frame, definitely has alot of potential. Keep it up! Love the res and good overall theme, but as mentionned the black fasteners clash hard; swap for stainless and voila! Also, I find the exterior really just, well plain... that's just me but I feel it needs some details.

    Offering opinions and complaining are two different things.
