    I like this case mod a lot. It gets back to basics on modding with do it yourself mods that don't require a huge bank account, cnc mill, and 10 years worth of work to look nice. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks once again guys!! I did not have time earlier today to do a proper-reply to two posts on the last page..
    @ Bof D -- I have read a number of reviews on Intel's DX48BT2 motherboard. They all say it's a stable board, but does not over-clock well. It's bundled gear is weak (next to nothing) and it's a bit "pricey" compared with other boards.. BUT, I still like it..:hehe:
    I have no plans to over-clock, I never have in the past and don't plan on starting now. It's just not my "cup of tea".. I just like the idea of a stable board without all that heatpipe stuff.. IMHO, company's are just going "nuts" with all these heatpipes on MB's these days. I guess you could just rip all the stuff off and water cool very thing, but I don't want to h20-cool the mosfets.. Finding the correct passive heatsinks (that look good) would be a problem..
    In fact I am not sure about water cooling the northbridge
    [​IMG]
    I guess this is the northbridge (or is it south) help.. Anyway it looks larger that the other.. Not sure if anyone has a block for it..

    @ CeeS -- Welcome to the forums.. I new some of those copper Aqua-Computer aquatubes had to be floating around Germany.. Very-Cool, how much do you want for it? :naughty: Your machine is looking very good..

    That would be a northbridge. It also looks like there are no DX48BT2 chipset blocks produced so far, but it does look like 975xbx2 and DX38BT stuff will fit on; Don't quote me on that one, though. Aside from that, there are the universal-fit blocks like the swiftech mcw30, which still doesn't look like it would fit, with the spacing of the holes and such.

    Heatpipes work very well, if you're not watercooling. If you are though.. blah.

    Hmm, I wonder how those mosfet heatsinks would look, in copper.

    Blackout VFD

    here is a small update I worked on last night (up until 3AM)..
    [​IMG]
    most people have seen these. The Aqua-Computer Aquaero VFD.. IMHO, a must have for h20-cooled computers..
    This is a EZ mod.. An Aqua-computer black replacement face plate installed inside out, black mounting screws and some black paint for the three control buttons.
    [​IMG]

    then some acrylic
    [​IMG]
    to change the displays readout to a brownish/yellow color.. Just cut the acrylic to fit the hole in the Aquaero's face plate, like a lense for eyeglasses..
    FIN

    my blackout VFD..
    Thats it.. More this weekend (hope)..

    I dunno MS, that board looks to be aimed at serious hardcore overclockers, I think they will leave the snail trial off that board lol. Like your mod to the Aquaero, any chance of seeing it lit up?
