    Well its a technology suppliers for schools.

    The acrylic is made by a company called Irpen which is a Spanish company. From their website they have suppliers in the UK, France and Spain.

    If you can find a suplier in the US, the type is "Policril" under which it says "Placa acrílica - Acrylic sheet UNE - EN ISO 9001:2000"

    Hope that helps

    Update:
    Finally got round to installing the watercooling and a new grill. Ordered a Watercool grill but didnt realise that it doesnt fit with a 120.3 so I had to modify the brackets. Enough of the bable on with the pics.

    After managing to snap the "Y" that came with the RBX kit I had to find an alternative. Rather than buying one off the net i had to find an alternative so I went to Keydell Nurseries and picked up a "T" piece, I will get a "Y" when they are instock.

    What's with all the people recently top-mounting rad fans as intake? People really fail to see the "heat rises" thing.... and I think it's been determined more than once that a "pull fan" on a radiator is slightly better for performance.

    That said, good work.

    ^ so true. but its his choice really!

    i personally have my rad on my intake, but in a push pull config, but thats because its on the fornt of my case, so heat does rise, but to a roof that doesnt care

    i love the looks of this rig, makes me want to grab my cheiftec full tower and mod it! may well do it, if i can be bothered.

    One way to make blue tinted plexi cheaply is to go to any auto parts store and buy a can of "candy apple" spray paint (the stuff i have is made by plasti-kote). If you spray the inside of a sheet of clear plexiglass. The result looks very similar, and you get a really beautiful glossy look. ALso, if you spray another coat of a different colored paint (like a metallic paint) over the candy apple , you can get some really interesting looks.
