    And those pictures certainly say somthing, alright. Dang, that is one fine finish. How tough is the chrome, does it scratch easily?

    nice, I'm always accidentally scratching aluminum, and thought that might be really easy to damage. Chrome: Looks awesome and stays that way.

    I dont know to much about chrome, can it be done in other colours, like maybe a copperish thing? Probably not I would guess.

    Thats to bad, I aways thought the freshly lapped copper heatsink look all over the outside of a case would be stunning. One could do it by hand but ...uhh to much work

    you could probably find a spray paint to do a similar effect. Car paint is idea for this... go to halfords if you are in the UK they do a huge range of sprays...

    The tubing is DangerDen Clearflex.

    Its a very complex loop but theoritcally it should work fine. NB and HDD blocks are on their own loops so they dont affect the flow rate that much.

    Side view.
