    Pure awesomeness...again, kier :) I really like your cable management, I have planned to make also like this. I hope you won't think that I steal your intellectual product.:lol:

    Awesome overload. I can't form complete thoughts in my head right now. Too busy attempting to comprehend how in the world you get these ideas!

    Mission: influence bit-tech's finest to suit own taste moar. Status: Successful :rock::hehe::naughty:

    My problem is I've got so many ideas but no money, material, skill, tools or place to make them a reality. Maybe I've found someone to channel them through :p;)

    Will be exciting to see how this will turn out, as well as your future projects - that is if you (hopefully) keep on modding for some years to come :dremel:

    This build is guilty of being the most original design I've seen in quite some time.

    Most importantly, what was traditionally the side of a computer has become the business end.

    The controls panel on the left is reminiscent of an industrial workstation console. This makes it seem more like a powerful machine.

    And finally, I've always been visually bothered by the Medusa's-hair tubbing in most water-cooled builds, even if it was placed in the name of cooling efficiency. Your straight tubing is the cleanest I can recall seeing. If I'm going to nitpick, however, the cabling from the PSU is noticeably not as straight. ;)

    looking good Richard. I really like the PSU setup with the sleeved cables visible beneath it.

    This is really a different project, a 5 stars :rock:

    As opposed to some comments, I love the colors, mostly because they are quite discrete.

    The cable management is near perfection, my only concern is upgradability thus, combs can handle this issue. However it is nos possible to have serious projects without constraining systems' upgrades.

    Nevertheless you are setting a new standard (again), so I would say that some ideas from this project will become standard modding solutions :thumb:


    regards,

    It's been a while since I have updated but with a reason... waiting for stuff and never came.
    So needed to improvise, because the show must go on.

    Little change is that I'm going to use shiny adapters.

    Also, a change in terms of the reservoirs. The choice is now 2x EK 250-X3 reservoirs.
    Mounted behind a piece of clear acrylic.

    I also tried some different things about the color of the ASUS mobo, but eventually i've made an extra cover for the original mobo cover.

    Measured and cut a piece of acrylic.

    Installed the cover to see how it looks.

    Nice, but it's just not it. So next idea.

    Made ​​one side white

    [​IMG]

    And the other side also white

    [​IMG]

    I'm doing this to get an even color playing with the LED strips.
    Also pasted a piece of black mat on the front side, and placed some red LED strips at the back

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And installed everything again
