    Gotta say I agree on this one. The Aqua Computer res is expeeensive, but come on - the REAL glass is exactly what this mod needs. Pure class.

    Thanks! :)

    I was also a bit worried while "working" with the reservoir as it seems is going to crack anytime!

    I was in love when I first saw the golden fittings! :D

    I ordered directly from Bitspower but sometimes you are not going to get any answers, be ready for that!
    Also I did some orders to Aquatuning ;)

    Thank you a lot :)

    I was not aware of the Aqualis and the new AQ stuff and it looks great!
    I will try to adapt my build for the Aqualis reservoir but that little update will be after the summer probably since my loop was planned with the EK reservoir options and size :)

    I'm sorry that I haven't posted any updates but I'm waiting for 2 pieces to continue with this build.

    I already did leak test and so far so good. I'm only having some drops leaking when I use pumps at minimum speed... when I kick both pumps to work at max RPM then there are no leaks :confused::confused:

    I will try to check the leaking area (above the AQ5 where the Top rad connects with the aquaero bridge)

    Hello everyone!
    I have some updates!

    [​IMG]

    I planned this midplate long time ago and I already had it at home for almost 2 months but I couldn't use it because still had to measure where to fit the reservoir + pump + SSD's etc..

    [​IMG]

    Here is the first hole, this will help me to connect the pump + reservoir combo with the lower section

    [​IMG]

    First cut done, now planing how to connect the lower section with the top section again to continue with the loop.

    Also need to do some holes to allow GPU wires to connect to the graphic cards...

    [​IMG]

    More cutting for this evening!

    Som

    just LUUUURVE this build giving me real inspiration to try and finish mine- had a little leaking issue with the AQ5 block leaking and a rad leak on top of surgery last week to hopefully correct a badly mangled shoulder so am a bit behind the times:wallbash:

    Was thinking about possibly doinga midplate type thingy as well but won't be anywhere near the quality of yours

    Keep up t'good work my man:thumb:

    Thank you for the nice words!
    I really encourage you to work on a midplate since it makes a whole lot of difference once mounted, everything is much better and looks so clean! :D

    :brrr::hip::thumb:


    More pictures of one of the custom pieces I was waiting!
    This was made by E22, hope you like it

    I plan to add a sensor between the pumps and the heatsink and see what temperature reading I get! :)

    More coming soon! :rock:

    Thank you Waynio!
    Really the design is all made by Nate, I just sent him a rough idea of what I wanted and then just let him do his magic lol.

    I will post some of the quick drawings I made (Lego box render style haha)

    Here is another of Nate's work and the final piece of the puzzle.
    I wanted a housing for my dual PSU starter so we decided to work on something unique, and after all the hard work and e-mails this is what he made, enjoy:

    I will put those holes you see there in a good use, I will show you later.

    [​IMG]

    This is the PCB that I will install inside the enclosure.

    [​IMG]

    Ready to be installed

    [​IMG]

    Installed!

    Ready to be connected! :rock:

    Very nice. :)

    All good designs are born from rough good :idea: not all good designs become real things but when they do. :jawdrop::clap::rock::hip::D

    Looking stunning mate.

    Have decided I will be getting either this case or the XSPC H20 Tower+, for my build and might do some modding on it but not sure yet but your build is inspiring.

    Thank you very much Waynio :))

    Thanks damien, I really like the Little Devil and I also did a lot of reserach before I placed my order and I think Little Devil has all what is needed for watercooling (and more!)


    Another small update, I've installed the custom PCB holder between the two rads and also connected all of the 24 pin cables aswell.

    [​IMG]

    The custom piece is fixed directly to the radiators (into the fan threads) and the rad sits on top of the two radiators.

    [​IMG]

    Those big holes are to allow tubing to pass and will help me to fix the tubing in place and avoid "dancing tubing" inside the case :D:D

    [​IMG]

    Here the connector and the extenders ready to recieve the tubing!

    [​IMG]

    The end is near, stay tuned! :rock:

    Thanks!

    Hey Editor22, everything is working great!
    I'm already thinking about the next custom piece for revision lol

    Will do!

    After so loooooooooooong and lots of hours and money I can say that Little Angel is almost finished, 90% that is, let me show you some picture before I show everything else but need to repaint some stuff :)

    Hope you like them as much as I did taking them ;)
