    That is a bloody sexy PSU, though I guess they're all starting to look the same now, eh?

    That PSU is sweet :D
    For those who don't know, it's the PSU from this interview (see part 2 of the video).
    Furthermore, nice work Snakez. I'd like to see better photos though.

    He's too busy updating his topic twice a day ;) I do like the mod, although the individual parts aren't that special in my opinion.

    Power supply and coverplated on their place .Loosing lots of wires. And put the hoseclamps on the tubing.
    Was a hard job getting them in place.
    Did not have enough tubing to install the pump and second (dual) radiator in the front , a shame but order some tomorrow .

    Ohh Thanks :clap: :rock:

    Looks...awesome just awesome! Very well done, nice skills you have there Snakez.

    On that picture, could you not put the tubing going from the graphics card onto the LEFT side of the rad (instead of the right), and then the right rad barb going to the inlet of the cpu block? Just a suggestion to keep the tubing nice and tidy as you've done a very good job on the cables!!

    Maybe that would be too much bending? Don't know actually. Pictures might show us. :)

    thnx for bigger pictures, this PSU seems not that long, can you tell me it's length? I ask because my 750w strider is 18cm long and this 1kw one seems shorter, is it?
