    Quoted for truth! The case is, in my opinion a little bit too big to house "just" an ITX board :lol:

    For me,this case is a little short on cooling 2 GPU's and a CPU,an extra 120 would of been nice but there is literally nowhere for it to be mounted.

    Only way I could see would be to mount the tube res off the 360 and stuff a 120 above the PSU, but that would be hard to pull off without being ugly.

    Nice clean loop! :thumb:

    Agreed,for the intended purpose,its perfectly fine in stock trim

    Got to keep it clean Nexxo,the secret of any good build.

    True,but the space can be utilized,its gives a modder a better chance to do something different.

    Then you have a rad recycling warmed air,you wouldnt gain anything.

    And an hour on the bench polisher later.....

    [​IMG]

    CPU block has been rotated for the correct flow path and the tube has had all the cutting back and tweaking done. I wont need to do any more polishing because of the candy coat,if this was a full bore polish job then I would still be at it till the small hours.....

    If I hadn't just plopped down 2K on my current build less than a month ago, I definitely would buy it. I just spent the better part of the night running copper tubing throughout my case. I ran out of tubing though. Need about 40 cm more to complete the loops. And solder the lot of it as I'm using fittings.

    Well,the candy coating of the tube went to pot,it looked so bad....the thinners rag was got out immediately and it was removed.....

    You know that cheap chrome plated plastic for kids toys? Yeah..just like that. So..polished copper it is.

    Sleeving this weekend and I cant wait to take finished pics of it.!

    In the meantime...

    Looks lush. I remember enameling metal in CDT as a kid at school, is that possible for pipes?

    Looks very wine-ish, which appeals to this old alcoholic. :D

    I can't be the only one who is gutted they didn't use their own logo as the power button, right?

    Really loving what you've done with this - a B Negative build just isn't complete without some clean copper loving. :rock:

    Now, how do we convince them to make a few tweaks to the case and release it commercially?
