    Hmm... Lets brainstorm here, what is the thermal conductivity of diamond compared to copper:D

    And how do we find a tap that can tap the G1/4 holes:p

    Ordered something last week i could really use today :)

    [​IMG]


    First some holes for the buttons of the pump/fan controller.

    [​IMG]


    Tape so it won't move.

    [​IMG]


    And some holes with 3.5mm.

    [​IMG]


    Wow, it fits :)

    [​IMG]


    Sanded the frame so i can paint it.

    [​IMG]


    Oops almost forgot i also had to paint the edge where the plexi goes.

    [​IMG]


    Glued the plexi.

    [​IMG]


    Bitspower fanguards back in after the paintjob.

    [​IMG]


    And some glue.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Rub it in with a wet finger.

    [​IMG]


    Believe me this glue doesn't let go :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Next problem, what to do with this..

    [​IMG]


    Ah we'll see :)

    [​IMG]


    Hmm... needs more cutting.

    [​IMG]


    Losing the sharp edges and create some nice roundings.

    [​IMG]


    Paint it black.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Also glued the frame for the pump/fan controller.

    [​IMG]


    Second part of the ex-5.25" slot.

    [​IMG]


    Let's stick the Dremel in there too.
    (Not easy to hold a Dremel in one hand and a cam in the other :) )

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And more polishing.

    [​IMG]


    Making it rough so i can paint it.

    [​IMG]


    And some fitting.

    [​IMG]


    Painted.

    [​IMG]


    Lots of work for something you hardly see back, but im satisfied for today.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Time for BBQ! :p

    Would be good, Diamond is 2 to 6 times a better conductor of heat than copper, bitch to mill though.. Maybe you could grow it :)

    Assembled the case again this week
    Quite some work cause of the lcd screen

    After that tested if the Velcro would work out.


    [​IMG]



    Works great, i think it can hold me too :p


    [​IMG]



    Pulling it off again wasn't that easy :)


    [​IMG]



    Placed the other stuff again too.


    [​IMG]



    Don't want too much lights on the outside, i like it this way.
    Maybe some red glow from the bottom...


    [​IMG]



    Maybe the top casewindow will be blood red plexi too.


    [​IMG]



    Here an airflowtest with the new fanholes.

    Well, I never would have thought of velcro to hold the radiator. Great idea. And nice work all round. :thumb:

    Venhar, don't worry, the velcro doesn't have to hold the rads weight, just to hold it on it's place.
    The rad itself wil be standing on a few layers of rubber tape. :)
