    First I was about to post: "Muahaha, cool!"
    But now as I saw the newer pics, I can't say anything.
    I am completly speechless.

    All that Flourescent Green Acrylic adds a nice effect to your case. Even better is adding the Flourescent Green Acrylic to the inside of your res.

    Looking good as always Defiant. Glad to see someone make a guide of sorts for making a custom acrylic res, people have been asking about it more on the forums i visit because of people like you and I making our own:hip:

    Not to threadjack but here are mine. Having colored liquid helps with the leak detection as the picture shows some leakage from one of my barbs that wasnt totally sealed yet, and one of the old SysFX splitters I have.

    would be cool if you could put a sealed acrylic tube inside the res, so u could have a neon inside, lighting the water from within.

    I have a cool idea that is kinda along the same lines.

    Now I'm not going to lie, when it comes to watercooling, i suck. however, this idea, is either going to look cool and improve performance, or just look cool.

    Is it posible (aimed at DÈF¥âÑt¸.·´¯`¤) to use a peice of flat plexi that is the same width as the tube but a bit longer and heat the whole thing up so its flexible and then twist it into a spiral. When its in the tube it can make sure the water travels all over the resivoir, aiding the cooling process. and it will look cool, especially if you put some leds in there with it.....

    Anyhoo, i wont have a hope in hell of doing something like that, cos i don't own a heating wire or paint stripper or any particular skills when it comes to plexi. It just shatters when i look at it..

    It'd look very cool. You could do it with some gloves and a heat-gun though :).

    Excellent idea Defyant-personally, what I would find even cooler would be integrating the pump(s) and other water cooling components stylishly inside the pump wherever possible; the radiator could sit nearby perhaps :D

    How about making the resivoir the pump....

    In fact, i may try this idea out:

    If I can find a pump that brings water in one end and forces it out the oposite end then you could do this:

    Like a resivoir, pump and aid to the cooling process all in one.

    Like i said, i suck at this stuff. would it work?

    i guess you could, as long as its is fully waterproofed. even then, i would probally leave the end with teh wires out of the water.
