    Also made a start on working out how the two loops are going to flow in this beast.

    Great work guys! confusis, I dunno where you get a 1u PSU that is powerful enough to run all that, but I'll just assume they exist somewhere....

    @ cheap - Nice design Cheaps especially loving the rear mounted CD drive.. neat idea. Is that the intended colour scheme btw? or just place holders?

    @ Confusis - Yay a final entry to marvel over :) thats one crazy mobo/cooling setup dude :p

    @editor - I only use color for collision detection. It also comes in handy when I drop a newer version of a part in and have to tell it apart from the old one. I think this will end up blue with yellow cooling.

    I crashed. I got a 'do you want to send an error report' message, so it's official.:hehe:
    It happened because I imported Dark's big-*ss motherboard!:p

    Ive pretty much given up, I cant seem to find a way to make a base that doesnt look crap so here it is, its a little ropey and low poly but you get the idea.

    Awesome concept dude! :thumb: looks cool , but yeah imo you need to work on that stand.. looks a bit "misplaced" compared to the rest of the build.

    Right Ive had a last attempt at sorting the base, and added some louvres for airflow. Im still not 100% happy with it though.
