    UPDATE 06.02.2015

    I can not decide whether use of pastel or transparent fluids.
    I think this is pastel fluid.

    [​IMG]


    I wantt to achieve this in blueish green
    [​IMG]


    With transparent fluids and dyes can ı mix and achieve Ceruluian blue
    [​IMG]

    but it not very easy to achieve cerulian with pastel fluids and dyes…
    I need to be patient…



    During the color experiments , ı mounted pump-rez combination an XSPC D5 Photon Reservoir/Pump combo

    And made connection between bıtspower case through hole fitting and reservoir

    Looking good.:D Can you sneak that switch box to the inside somehow? I think maybe mounting under a hole so the rubber button is exposed, and extending the rocker switch to face out...

    -Maybe just mod both switches so you can hide the box with the PSU cables.
