    Thank you very much :D Great words from a great modder. That photo made us chuckle.

    Thanks sir. Really sorted that raid card out.

    Should have a new mini update for you tomorrow night. Got a bit done today.

    Just seen the RAID card, amazing work. My mCubed BigNG gets SUPER hot (like, oh-look-I-have-a-heatsink-imprint-burn-on-my-finger-now hot) and I've got a little (northbridge maybe?) heatsink that I'm planning on using on that. Your solution is wonderfully elegant. I'm also very jello of your tap, looks like a nice bit of kit.

    Thank you very much dude.

    Thanks Parge, kind words there. Just nice to look at the temp on the raid card and see it a lot cooler. Had a few people warn me about performance problems when running big raid configs due to heat so why not watercool! It's a great little tap, looked up a high quality manufacture in Germany and found the correct size on eBay. Super fun to make your own G1/4 threads!

    ohhh.. 'Something New. Coming soon' I like ;)

    Just another update

    Sponsors/Support:
    [​IMG]

    Welcome back. Nice to see you all.

    First up we would like to say Thank you once again to tiny tom logan, he of course mate the raid card mod possible.... by supplying said raid card. Thanks mate.

    We would also like to thank Asus for the support along the way. They did a great little write up on the rog.asus website that managed to pull in a MASSIVE 31,797 views. This is huge for us and considering the builds not finished.. very impressive. Thanks for the continued support Asus UK and Richard.


    To the update!

    We start by cutting the 'final' top panel:

    [​IMG]

    That took some SERIOUS measuring skills that's for sure. Couldn't have done it without our trusty digital caliper. To any modder looking for a new tool... it's the one of course:

    [​IMG]

    Now we have to get to work on the pump/res connections. Sorry to anyone who is big on symmetry. Lines pretty hectic here also:

    [​IMG]

    Installed an additional D5 in the second layer of the top panel... more accurate measuring require of course to allow it connect directly to the fitting below:

    [​IMG]

    Next... despite having the wonderful b neg help us out and bend the tubes for the front of the case we just could not get it to fit in with the build, even trying to make the front panels cover as much of the bend as possible it still didn't look neat enough.

    So more measuring... more replacement panels... so many replacement panels...!

    [​IMG]

    Pretty accurate fit:

    Cheeky shot with 1 of the 2 full pipes installed:

    [​IMG]

    MUCH happier for sure. Both will be filled with white coolant. Really cant wait for this.



    Until next time... what are you all up to this week?

    haha oh well... lots of fapping going on here. sure you are on the correct website mates? :D

    Thanks Egami, look forward to following your future works.

    Mainly down to tolerances in the CNC and how good your measuring gear is. Most things take a few goes to get that perfect but on this one we aced it first time. Happy bunnies for sure.

    Wow! Well done guys, that front panel, such accuracy, those fittings look as thou they have melted back into the acrylic.

    I need to get in touch, got some designs to send down.

    Using fittings for the front is brilliant and much much better looking (hardtubes shouldn't be bend imo) Going to look epic once filled!

    Maybe that's how we did it! Heated up the fitting and pressed it in! Haha, I wish it worked that way and thanks, it came out really nice and we will use the method again.

    Okie doke, fire them over. Have to say we are hella busy but we get there eventually :D

    Glad you approve, sorry to change them! Just worked better in this application. Yeah we went black chrome whole build so had to keep it uniform!

    Thanks sir, glad we went monotone on this build. Will fit in at home better as well in between shows :)

    Shaun is of course very happy with this comment. We've actually had other people say the build has an architectural vibe, which is awesome as they had no idea of his background.

    Thanks for sticking around and checking in Nate. Hope you are repairing well!

    Thanks man. Agree for sure, personally prefer not bending and it looks much sleeker here. Glad we converted some people to like how crazy the tubing is here :D
