    It won't make much of a difference. The water doesn't heat up significantly from block to block because of the speed it goes through them.

    Can't wait to see all those blocks and pipes filled up Hukkel :clap:

    Thanks Siliconfanatic!

    Thank you Pranja!

    I thought about it, but it will mean more fittings meaning more cost. And I personally really like the bent pipes. I have tried to make them run parrallel as much as possible.

    Me neither man :)

    I really want to see how the system looks all filled up and lit by UV.

    btw I didn't reply to all the questions as you had answered them amongst yourselves already :)

    Check out what landed on my doorstep friday out of sunny Portugal :)
    Ricardo made me so very large grills for this case. And do they look awesome.
    I haven't even taken the plastic protective layer from the green grill yet.
    Then it will be even more stunning green.
    It is not UV reactive plexi sadly. But very bright green still.
    And of course dustfilters all around to keep my fans and radiators from clogging with dust.

    He also created an illuminated midplate with a custom top cover.
    As you can see in the window picture the letters are letting light through.
    Going to look very nice.

    And added the needed LED strips to the bundle.
    I love them because they don't come with molex connectors but fan connectors.
    So easy to just plug into a splitter or mobo or fancontroller.

    I will let the photos do the talking.

    I want to thank Ricardo yet again for this sponsorship.
    The parts are absolutely amazing. Sheer perfection.
    Both design wise and finish of the parts.
    I am deeply honoured you partner up with me for projects. :clap::thumb::rock:

    Ricardo does great work,all the bits i have had off him before have been stellar.
    A good choice and he is often overlooked,that needs to change.

    And I want all of your stuff at home! Shall we trade? I would like me that CNC machine ;)

    ;)

    Thanks for the comment J. :thumb:

    Yeah Ricardo is a craftsman. The finish of his products is great, the packing is great and above all he can make an idea into a working part. That is a gift.

    --------------------------------

    And update time.
    I fitted the grills to the arch.
    Made two 10 cm fancable extensions for the bottom fans.
    Fitted the fans in it.
    Fitted the small PCB fan splitter.
    Shortened the UV led strip power cables.
    Fitted the LED strips and connected them.

    Only need to fit a window and the arch is done HOORAY!

    Here are some pictures.
    I wanted to also show it of while working but I can't find my spare powercable FTL

    Enjoy the photos!

    I thought the green and black had a white layer between them 'cause of the pics with the protective layer still on. It still looks good, but the white layer really worked in my mind.

    Hope you will enjoy it.

    haha I am a bit ahead here that is true ;)

    Glad to see you here Peter.

    Maybe you are right :)
    Good chance you are. But I don't have room for another layer. :sigh:

    Thanks Jackjack!

    I haven't had TOO much time for this build. I was waiting for some parts and had some other stuff to do. But I certainly did NOT abandon it. I made the wiring to the top today and tested it.
    I have been watching it for like 10 minutes.... just watching....

    Lets watch together some more....

    So glad I finally have my account activated so I can comment on here!

    Amazing project, Hukkel. Absolutely love it! Loving how the loop looked in the photos (even if it was closed on a part of it :D) Can't wait to see more updates on this and to finally see it running!

    Keep the updates coming!

    Cheers,
    d*

    Thanks a lot Sass, that means a lot coming from you :clap:

    Thank you very much Des, very happy you are here now as well :rock:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Finally had some real time on my hands for this.
    Did a good chunck of work friday and saturday and this morning.
    And the weekend isn't over yet =)

    First some pictures of a box of stuff I ordered with some fittings, tubing, loads of fillports and such.
    They didn't have full stock so I am awaiting 11 more fillports!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now onwards to the work being done. Because I received some fillports to work with I wanted to go ahead and work on the roof.
    All 4 coolant channels will go over the top through the "attick" :D

    What is this? A game of chess?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Had to cut away 3 layers of metal (right through the PSU box) to get a path where to put the hosing through from the top compartment to the bottom compartment (out of sight).

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ah so that is what the crosses were for. 20mm holes for the fillports.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    All 4 holes on each side. Including holes in the plexi panel on the "ceiling" of the case.

    Time to get some paint on the top panel to give the inside a more clean loop that the stock one with all the holes and cutouts.

    I have tried to get a pattern on there, but I might cancel that if the end result is really MEH.

    More chess w00000000000t!!!!

    [​IMG]

    No wait more holes.....
    This time in the TOP panel of the case. All of which won't be visible when the arch is on.
    The idea is to get 4 straight plexi tubing routes over the top under the arch.
    I did 2 here so you can get an idea. Only the tubing will be visible and the UV LED strips will hopefully make the UV reactive coolant look great.

    Tis a thing a beauty Hukkel, I missed the fans and windows and my jaw nearly hit the floor when looking through the photo's. Great depth to the design, the layers work well together. Top notch stuff:thumb:
