    Thanks for all the positive comments and a didn't think the saw was such a special tool. In Holland children often use such a saw to saw figures out of thin wooden plates. These plates are printed with things like Donald Duck and that sort of things. After sawing the wood you can paint those cartoon figures.

    @ venomz, the housing for the pump is from http://www.aqua-computer.de/

    It used to be black, but I took it to the chromer.
    I use two pumps, both Eheim 1048.

    I will use two seperate waterloops. I don't want the PSU's in the same loop as the CPU. If you're on the website from Aquacomputer just click on the english flag.

    Hmmmm the shop is only in german. They have two pumphousings, one for the Eheim 1046 pump and one for the Eheim 1048. Maybe you can find an english webshop that sells the Aquacomputer gear.

    That's what I know it as too.
    Jigsaw's have power cords snaking out the back.

    Nice work!

    Franklin have you tested how the flow will be with the 1048 pumping the cpu section? Or does aqua gear slow things up?

    good/bad flow?

    Big thanks

    I did not test the system with the watercooling yet. AC gear is flow restrictive, but I know the temperatures with their parts are just fine. High flow isn't as important as some would like you to make believe.

    I've installed some metalwork in the case. First the piece that coms in the area of the CPU. It has to come right here.

    [​IMG]

    I alredy drilled and tapped the holes in the aluminium plate. But now I will have to get the places that have to be drilled marked in the Lian Li. So I used a bit of paper.

    [​IMG]

    Put the paper in the case and mark the drilling spots.

    [​IMG]

    After drilling the holes I mounted the plate from underneath with some bolts. Notice that the bolts are behind the aluminium plate.

    [​IMG]

    Next thing to do is the left plates. I attached the plate with the LCD cover to the smaller one with 4 bolts.

    [​IMG]

    and an overview. I think it will look very good after it all has been polished.

    Dirt and tiny scratches. I'll remove those when I'm done with the construction. I think it is useless to remove those in this stage of the mod.

    Her you can see almost all the gear in place. The two PSU's, the two pumps, the LCD and the HDDrack.

    Just one thing. It's detail work only and don't mind if you already were going to do it, but: Those holes for the eject buttons on your drives... do I see grey plastic? :eyebrow:
    Naw, c'mon... this HAS to have a little makeover.
    Except this... :rock: !

    You didn't really think I will leave those eject buttons this way, did you? Somewhere in the earlier posts you can see what I will do with them. All will be acrylic in combination with the aluminium, also the ejectbuttons. I'm just waiting for some special glue to glue the acrylic and aluminium together without the glue being visible.
