    That's some awesome radiators dude! nice to see the build progressing along smoothly :D
    We are looking into getting a 3D printer at work, every time I read more of your log I keep getting inspired and praying they decide it's a good idea :D

    Time to get on with this, so it will be somewhat ready to S7 Lan at my school:p

    First of all, I have been busy with some other stuff that I will post tonight, or tomorrow:D But i will give you a teaser:
    [​IMG]

    Anyways, on to the big and expensive thing that I am about to cut holes in :D

    [​IMG]
    So, as mentioned earlier i had to cut off a piece of the mobo tray to make it fit with the radiators.

    [​IMG]
    Also had to cut off the two thingies that I think is supposed to hold some feets for the mobo tray, if you want to use it as a bench table :D

    [​IMG]
    Like a glove! Fits lovely in there! :)

    [​IMG]
    So, got my hands on some raw material! From this,

    [​IMG]
    I made this. But what is it? I will show in a min.

    [​IMG]
    First, I cut a hole in the case :D This hole lines up with the radiator in the other side. You see, instead of connecting the two radiators with tubes, I will just connect them with the piece shown in the previous pic.

    [​IMG]
    So just put it in, make it go into the radiator on the other side aaand...

    [​IMG]
    Mount radiator number two:) Saves me a couple of fittings, and it looks darn clean!

    [​IMG]
    Here you can see it connected to the two radiators:)

    That was all for now fokes. I have some dye coming in, so that I can hopefully colour the 3d printed stuff in a real black, and not some brownish like the last dye I got :(

    Sweet solution, but how will you make the threads to make it possible to screw this piece into both rads at the same time?

    I guess it must just plug in nicely & not screw in :) knowing p0Pe I'd say so, big on the tiny details :rock::D sweet little piece :thumb:.

    Nice fit for the rad too :).

    Thanks mads:D And for your question. Look below:)

    As always, you are right waynio:p

    This pieces:
    Have o-rings in both ends, so the pieces is just "plug and play" :) Took quite a while to make it on the lathe, since the measurements had to be exactly if i did not want it to leak:D

    I am at the moment building a "leaktester" that will work with air and a pressure gauge, so i dont have to fill water in the loop to leaktest lol:p

    Are those radiators Aluminium on the inside or just the fins? They are just too nice looking.
