    Update

    Finaly, a new update!
    The Dutch casemod championchips are coming up and there is a lot of work left.

    What's the planning?
    - New spacing between the 2 cases
    - improving the baybus
    - modifying the reservoir
    - VGA watercooling
    - Finishing touch the he rearside of the case

    Oops, some dirt in the CPU cooler due top bad cooling fluid and airbubbles

    The most inportant update, there will be a few acrylic bloks between the 2 cases with brake hoses running trough it. Offcourse with high precision and light effects.

    This one was the hardest one because his length. It's bigger because the watercooling tubes are going trough it.

    Building the acrylic blocks is not as easy as you might think. First i should make a hole in it where the aluminium strip would fit in. The rough lines are done with a dremel, and after that it takes +/- half an hour to make it fit exactly for every block. The aluminium is pushed into the acryl with no need of glue. After fitting it it's time to get the right dimension and polish the aluminium. when moving your finger over it you can hardly feel the junction between acryl andaluminium.

    Changing the reservoir, i hope this will remove air out of the water.

    The first idea was to use fibers, but the light output was way to low, so i decided to use RVS wire.

    Because i was polishing the RVS wires i did the rear grill too.

    Hard to keep a workspace tidy hehe.

    [​IMG]
    Left side is done :D

    [​IMG]
    What to do when your safety glasses are gone? Yep, use a piece of acrylic instead.
    [​IMG]
    All the blocks are done.

    Don't know when the next update will follow, but it won't take too long. In the next update i will add lights and a black piece beyond the blocks to prevent looking between them to the other side.

    I'm sure many people will still find it more comprehensible than Dutch or Flemish. ;)

    update

    Just a quick update to show you the result of the blocks with led's. I've mounted them today together with the black strip witch prevents looking trough the space between the cases:

    I will get some better pictures when the saw-dust has been removed and the cable's are cleaned up.

    update

    Finaly the system is up and running again. I was ill the past day's so i stayed home. Try to sleep is getting bored quickly so i did some modding. Yesterday my health was much better so i've been modding the whole day to get the machine up and running again. Very happy with that due to the fact that today is the deadline for the dutch casemod championship.

    The watercooling seems now without air bubbles :D So the mod on the reservoir worked well AFAIK.

    [​IMG]
    Finished the large rear grill.

    [​IMG]
    I've added 2 12cm fan's ( 4 in total), the whole front is now filled with fan's hehe. Much cooler in 2 ways.

    Wicked mods Ferry!

    I loved your case the first time round, and I'm liking it again.

    One thing though, if your entering it into the same competition again maybe you dont stand as good a chance to win.

    Everyone has seen it, and whilst you have made some cool changes, its fundamentally the same mod.

    Thanks both :)

    Past year i was there with a different mod. That one was more eye-catching (rust theme, complete different compared to the other 9 mods, see signature). This time there are more mod's witch are build around hi details etc. So the option to become 1'th again will be less anyway i think. Doesn't mather, i hopefully approved my craftsmanship anyway hehe.
