    Yeah, its been a real ride the last few days. On monday I had oceans of time to finish it, now it looks like I barely will make it (but that is still ok)
    This is just a small part. I had to fit into the legs :
    24 wire ATX, 4+4 wire mobo pwr, 6+6 wire GPU pwr, 4 wire molex, HDMI 1.4, CAT5e, USB2.0 and 2 x 3/8 tubing. Without causing too much restriction in the loop !

    Thanks man !

    Ha, Thanks! Unfortunately that one aint mine! Wish I made CPU mag though. There are 2 other AT's so i have discovered after hearing about the AT in CPU. Both air cooled and very cool projects. It good to see diversity like that!

    SHOWTIME !!!!

    I managed to get a new 2600k and a new mobo just in time and spent yesterday night building it into the AT-AT.

    So got a whole list of little things to do like plug some holes in the legs and front, restore a rim on the hood, lightproof the hood, finish the res, place some feet, adjust the 2 layer plexi frame, place 2m2 styrene, install fancontroller, Add 2 leds, clean the whole model, pack for 3 days of LAN and breathe …

    Here is the Final Teaser !

    Later!

    Here is the main body. I had to get a lot of stuff out of there to make room for the mini ITX board.

    With the interior out of there I could get a better view on how the fit the hardware.

    The location of the reservoir was quickly found. The space was exactly 60mm. I was expecting to have to restore the model a lot here, but i found a very nice 60 mm res that fitted perfectly.

    The inside of the leg. I needed to fit a lot of wires, cables and tubing in there as I wanted NO visible cables !

    The start of the base, and figuring out the locations for the radiators.

    WHERE IS THE GIRL?!
    I am really missing the girl on the back of the AT-AT :D
    Nice project otherwise, clearly you hadn't enough time in the sense that I sense you could do better with extra time, but it is already nice.. :)

    Yeah, I was hoping to score some babes at the LAN but there were none!
    Everything could be better with more time, but with 3 weeks I think I gave it one hell of a shot! Making 3rd place on the LAN was great!

    Thanks, yeah I knew i had to pull a rabit out of the hat to get it done in time. Shorting the mobo and CPU really put a dent in the final work like airbrushing the cables in the feet and covering the base with more styrene plating.

    Thanks! It really didnt have to be a 3 mm bigger or wider or it wouldnt fit. Spent a whole day trying to make it fit with the fittings I had!

    Thanks man! Its gonna look sweet in my office next to the EURISKO!

    A new buildupdate is in the making !
