    As of now it doesn't look like I will have any usable free time until August. So my other computer related projects probably won't be finished until then. I'm trying to finish by Bachelor's degree by August 1st, and in order to do so I will be doing a semester abroad this July. I will be living and studying in Beijing for that entire month. May and June are looking to be very busy as well.

    This project however only needs two parts made and I'll be able to squeeze them in during any given weekend sometime in the near future. I just have to get around to it...

    No time to finish ... semester abroad ... a month in Beijing ... :waah:

    I know you're just stating a fact and not whining about it, but it does seem that you are apologizing for not meeting the needs of your readership. Don't, we'll all get over it.

    Regardless of the amount of work ahead of you and the difficulty of immersing yourself into Chinese culture, I am envious. What a trip. Have the time of your life.

    It's just the self-disappointment coming across. I had originally wanted to have this machine done back in March but life wasn't cooperating. As usual.

    The semester abroad is going to be awesome because I've always wanted to visit Asia, and because it will prevent me from having to wait another year to graduate.

    Sounds like you have an awesome opportunity and a lot of work ahead of you. May it all go well.

    As for the mod: those with short attention spans will forget too soon anyway and the rest of us can wait. Life happens.

    WHAT is that keyboard. It is off the chain. Specifically the awesome chain. Is it part of the mod? I know I should go back and look, but I'm in a rush, sorry.

    I don't think I ever mentioned the model. It's a Keymat Technology Storm 1100 series vandal resistant keyboard. It's a discontinued model only available in PS/2 that I got for an insanely low price on eBay last year. It's not ideal for typing on and it lacks a windows key so I really only use it for benchtesting hardware. It's completely spillproof and the frame is a sandwich of stainless steel and ABS plastic, so it should be no surprise that it weighs around 10 pounds.

    Vandal-resistant keyboards typically cost $150 or more, but you can get them as cheaply as $25 if you selectively search eBay.

    I'm on the last semester of my Bachelors degree and money as well as time are kind of tight right now. This project was "just for fun" and that fun ran out when my waterblocks disintegrated.
    The machine has been rebuilt with air cooling and will be replacing a HTPC that was giving me problems. I may add the watercooling to it later if I get the time to deal with it.

    I won't have time to work on computer projects until after August. But this one in particular is finished for now. I might switch it back to water later this year when I can afford to finish the new waterblock tops.

    That's a shame tbh, it was looking bloody awesome too!

    I can't fathom why you used antifreeze instead of something like water-wetter, or just plain-old red dye to colour the water (if that was the effect desired, I didn't read the whole thread).

    Good luck with the degree. :thumb:
