    Excellent work. Coating in leather is an awesome idea. If I ever did it, I would put a thin layer of foam under there to add some body to it. Looks amazing though.

    I think it would have been interesting to see dual loops in this tiny monster.
    The waterblock looks great!

    Subbed - Just GOTTA follow this one!

    Too bad those fans won't fit inside the top of the case - I'm a sucker for "All inside the case" mods, but I guess with this small case there simply wasn't room.

    Excellent job on the custom waterblock - looking forward to seeing the efficiency of it.

    Neato, Love your custom waterblock and a suggestion, maybe get your tubes white similar to the PURE mod so it matches your sleeving.

    Your mod looks sweet so far, can't wait to see what it's like finished.

    The custom waterblock; It looks like the two inlets and outlets line up more with the outside channels. Does the channel in the middle have enough flow?

    Did you drill the center of the blocks out from the ends and plug them?(they look like solid square stock) How did you get the channels for the water to flow through? Is that silicone or just a thread lube that you put on the fittings? Sorry ment to quote the other pictures too.

    Next step, gonna change the motherboard for a dual-core version, build a better waterblock, white tubbing and add a Pico Projector to the case.

    Those coming improvements sound great - I have to say that I'm not a big fan of the fittings, you've chosen. They look too much like fittings for household water installations, sorry... and the manifold blocks also look quite homemade (no pun intended). Maybe a coat of white color would suit them, alongside the white tubing you plan to use? Also, support the PSU with something. It's hanging a bit?

    Other than that: great build. Continue! Just a few things will make this build much more impressive.
