    I see what you mean Modsquad. That did not look red to mee..at all.
    You could have sanded the piece so that it would follow the mounting
    bracket edge, mounted it on top of the aluminum, but I guess
    you would still have the same problem.

    Good birthday-present for me though :hehe:

    You should take a look at my project, some updates waiting.

    can I have your older Aquatube(s) then? I'm not that rich right now, but I want to switch to German watercooling :)

    you see, I made money working for my a$*h0le uncle in Japan last summer, but my mom "helpfully" exchanged it from Japanese yens to Canadian dollars for me, stored it in her bank account and won't transfer it to mine :grr:

    @NANO: the acrylic was acquired from MSCDirect
    One of my favorite websites..
    @BoD: a ball-bat may be insufficient for entry into the SlaughterHouse. I am a "card-carrying" member of the NRA :hehe: The Colt .45 is loaded (8-in the clip, one in the pipe)..

    The update.. Low Reservoir(s):
    HoleSawed (64mm) the black acrylic mounting plate:

    Beautiful.

    Question: How many Threads per inch is M3/M4 nut/bolts? I really can't seem to find it. (I wish everything was NC or NF :()
    Question 2: Those 2 aquatubes in right now are #95 and #96, respectivly?

    Now that's red, no more orange :hehe:

    Looking mighty fine there, those would look cool on the front too, but they should give a really nice accent light to the back of the case as they are.

    It really is a shame that those acrylic aquatubes are limited edition, but on the other hand it makes your mod stand out even more, you belong to a limited edition club now :D Only thing nicer would be totally custom made reservoirs...maybe on your next mod :hehe:

    "Colt 45 and two zig-zags, baby that all we need..." -afroman :hip:
    this is really looking good. i didnt really like aquatubes until i saw those glow! its probably too late now, but is it possible to mount the LED in the back of the tube rather than the fron so there isnt a bright spot right on the face?
