    Now that is kinda funny, cause thats the same thing i did when i was talking to you on aim, same hand and all .. and it was your project i was working on. Cursed! Your projects are CURSED! Hehe, just playing, sorry bout your thumb, hurts like a hell, heh I know.

    This case looks awsome. and love how "minimalistic" it looks :D

    I love this mod!
    And those original handles are definitely better than the others

    The two lengths coming off of the CPU block are rigid polyethylene tubing. The rest of the lengths are 7/16" ID 5/8" OD opaque black PVC tubing on rigid tube adapters I made out of PETG (polyester).

    Well monkey fart. The relay quit after 2 minutes for unknown reasons, and there's a tiny leak on the inlet of the pump. So I've taken the whole thing apart again so I can epoxy the leak.

    I'm probably going to ditch the relay entirely and simply scalp it's 2-pin AC connector.

    nasty with the hand there. i've done that before trimming swarf off pewter models. gotta love thumbnails dont you?

    i found superglue to work well - stops bleeding immediately. gives you time to head off to the doctors... :rolleyes:

    Turns out I simply blew the fuse on the pump relay. I'm still going to ditch it because it's making the top of the case a little more awkward than it needs to be.

    Update later in the coming week, I've had a really WEIRD weekend.
    I want to spend the next few days rearranging my living and working spaces. I'm going to have a dedication computer modification area once I can get all the furniture moved around and my crap organized.

    Looks like it is almost ready for war :D

    And I hear you on the organizing part, just gets so hard to do anything after a certain point, projects can get everywhere so easily.

    Been busy gutting my room and starting over from scratch. Almost finished and tomorrow I will start moving my projects in here in order to get them out of the basement where they're simply getting out of hand.

    1. haha, you're assuming there are ladies in this area that interest me and I find that amusing.

    2. I won that machine in an article writing contest and the bulk of it's hardware (everything except the motherboard) will eventually get transplanted into Mk.6

    3. A BUNCH. There are 12 computers in my house right now. A few serving various purposes and some old ones I'm simply trying to get rid of because I got them for free from a domain hosting company that was doing a mass upgrade.
    Theres: My main machine, Metal Slug, an HTPC server, an HTPC client, two office machines, two internet clients, and one laptop. The first two are the only ones I monopolize.
    I'm not really sitting underneath the bed, so no.
