    Update 1st May.


    Well some nice parts just arrived from ChilledPc. :)


    As the mobo im thinking of getting has multi colored slots and tbh they look **** on the blue and white mobo so got a set of slot protectors which should hide some of the nastiness.

    Koolance has really stepped up a gear over the last few years. I would actually consider buying their blocks and equipment now, they look awesome lol.

    WOW! that power bulge looks sweet! I like the look of the rotary elbow fittings on the rad.

    Is the text cut out on the Koolance block perspex? If so thats going to look ace with some UV fluid.

    Anyone know if those Lian Li radiator brackets will work with my CM Stacker?

    Yah the text on the block is a little window into the fluid inside. I see no reason why the brackets wont work in any dvd bay set up :) Glad u like!

    Well the idea of the shroud is to lift the fans away from the fins of the rad so you dont get a dead spot where the middle of the fan would normally sit. Im basically still having the fans in the same place but encasing them in the shroud for looks more than anything. Once painted with the rest of the parts it should look good(hopefully).

    The sleeving looks amazing, I love it. Those Enermax fans are really cool, they look great and perform well.

    Yah they should look sweet once shroud is white too. My hope is if i use them on the rad, PSU and exhaust fan they will basically circle the mobo and maybe light the case so i dont need cathodes? think it may work?

    Well you have quite a few fans so it should give you a nice glow. I have 3x120mm and 1x80mm fans with blue LEDs in my case and I get a great glow, no CCFLs needed (except the UV ones I have).

    Great job so far! Will keep an eye on this one!

    Idea: what about colouring the fan wires all black or white, depending on overall colour scheme (or just desolder and replace with black/white ones)?

    Question: Are you sure you want the shroud white? I for one, think it looks great with the black/white contrast!! =D

    Well the case externals, PSU, rad, braiding, tubing, fans etc are all white with the internals powdercoated baby blue. The only black in the entire build is the plugs on my PSU cables, the mesh in the door and the stickers on those fans. I may cover those cables as you mentioned in white heatshrink or maybe sandwich some mesh between the fans and the shroud to hide it.
