    These images don't do it justice, but it looks like this to some effect:
    [​IMG]

    See how the letters look like they are pretty deep, and lit underneath the plexi. They aren't actually on the surface, but under it.

    Basically, the letters are lit, and then reflective plexi or w/e is in front of it. The plexi is a little in front of it, like 2-3mm maybe? The lit letters shine onto the plexi's back, and results in a cool effect.

    SMALL UPDATE 19-06-05

    I haven't had any time (material) to start on the sidepanel yet. I am going to pick up 2 pieces of plexi this thursday for a minor 3 euro :thumb:

    Also this is my orderlist for my WC stuff (and some mesh/plexi). It might change a bit but you'll get an idea of what I am going to use.

    Some tools I bought this week:

    My dremel Multipro is on order so I will have that within 2 weeks (they said lol)

    Anyway.. I also made the decision to wait for the Crossfire mobo + card. But I will order my x850xt/pe pci-e as soon as my new paycheck is in.

    Like I said.. I am going to pick up the plexi thursday so after that you can expect an update :naughty:

    Its always awesome to see new tools and awesome watercooling hardware! The case is very nice, a bit big for me, but nice anyway.

    Good luck with your mod.

    What model Dremel is that? Mine's a 395 but it goes up to 37,000 RPM?

    Is it possible the different country's voltage/amp ratings could make the dremel spin slower? (odd though?)

    Cats are walking staticballs of death. At no time should they be allowed near components. Ever.
    Lizards on the other hand are static-less and look cooler (at least IMO).

    BTW this has the potential to be a very sweet mod.

    I put my mobo + ram + soundcard in my case. Nothing more, because I have to wait for one barb for my pump because it was the wrong one.

    Here are some pictures:

    [​IMG]

    I removed my stock cooler from my videocard:

    [​IMG]

    Also I prepped the watercooling for tomorrow/day after.
    What i need to know is.. would this be a good loop for my watercooling? It's just an example, because nothing is in its right place atm.

    [​IMG]

    I'm hoping to start on my window and other stuff and to have my pc done around next week.

    Lian Li V-2000 is a very good choice aevitas :D
    The case looks big, but it isn't difficult to fill the entire case with hardware I can tell you. Good luck with your mod.
    Are you still looking for some plexi? Take a look at Coolcase or at bouwplastics

    I mean the little fan on the northbridge is noisy, is it going to be replaced by a silent one? :confused: (like the zalman I mentioned)
