    Thanks for the support guys
    I have a number of ideas for this case. First off, in order to take advantage of the full-height of the case the divider plate needs to be moved down (channeled). This will give me a "free hand" in pump location.
    Here is a mock-up to illustrate what I am talking about:
    [​IMG]
    By doing this I create the problem of the 4" gap between MB tray and divider plate (same goes for the bay-support)..
    [​IMG]
    We will need to fabricate some Alu extension panels..
    With some luck, I should start "cutting" on the case tomorrow. Will most-likely work on the botton-mount radiator hole..
    As promised some case jewelry:
    [​IMG]
    a pair of Aqua-Computer Full Metal jackets (FMJ) for my Eheim 1046 pumps
    [​IMG]
    a pair of AC's Aquatube mounting plates
    [​IMG]
    and the front/rear plates for one of there Aquadrive HDD coolers
    [​IMG]
    I also hope to incorporate some custom Harley Davidson parts from a few of my favorite bike-builders. First off:
    Eddie Trotta
    Indian Larry sadly Larry passed away Aug.30 2004.
    He was perhaps the best "old school" bike builder on the planet. RIP Larry:
    The parts:

    headbolt covers

    coil cover
    [​IMG]
    oil filter cover
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    pushrod collars
    [​IMG]
    these are in brass with Larry's flying-? logo..
    that is it for today Guys, enjoy the weekend..

    Don't know..
    Perhaps EkWaterBlocks
    I am a big-fan of eddies stuff.. I have loads-of time before I need to decide. The loop will be the "big-smallbore" 11mm OD (in black tygon)...that I do know..

    Another masterpiece in the making! :cooldude:

    Indian Larry was the best old school bike builder imo... :rock:

    Was a very sad day when I heard the news! :sigh:

    How sharp are those pointy things?

    Any indication of the hardware going into it?

    Would you like some cookies?

    Bbq and I were talking on MSN about how you might prick your fingers multiple times when you're drunk (based on the number of beer bottles I've seen in the SG worklog)...

    so two WC loops, one for the major components such as CPU and GPU, with a second one for stuff such as MOSFET, NB, SB, HDD?

    I'm drooling already...

    Edit: I got a GREAT idea. Use beer for coolant in the watercooling loop(s).

    looks great so far. the case has a nice clean look too, are you planning on keeping that look or changing the appearance?

    Sorry for my slow response guys.
    @ BoD: the headbolt covers are "very" spiky..they could induce a injury without a doubt. As for hardware, its to soon to say. BUt, rest assured, it will be the fastest-money can buy. Only the best for this project.

    @n00btard: yes, two h20-loops (and most likely four reservoirs). IMO, it's best to have the CPU in one loop and the GPU(s) in the other. Videocards generate a lot of heat and having them in the same h20-loop as your CPU is less than ideal.

    @tkdwarrior: I argee, the LL case has a clean look. There will be a side window as well as a side-radiator air intake..

    @ssR: I love ChromE.. More on it's way..Not done yet..Before you can start cutting, you need to collect parts and do lots of mock-up..That is where I am at..

    How many pumps are you planning on using? you say 2 loops, but with 4 res's, wouldn't it be better to have a 3rd loop just for the rad? thats if I understand how you are planning on running everything.
