    thanks, looks like it would be much better with an x ring instead of an o ring, I'll search to see what I can find in switzerland.

    Looks awesome! You are so freakin talented.

    About the colors changing cause of your camera.I assume you arent using flash. If you are using PASM mode you should be able to change the lighting setting. There should be a number of options. Daylight setting should keep the color correct. :thumb:

    UPDATE 21

    thanks to you all ! :)

    talladega, thanks for the advise :)

    UPDATE 21

    well, I received the package from performance-pcs with 4.5 meters of Fesser tubing :D
    and some other small stuffs.
    so the first thing I did was to mount the water cooling loop

    [​IMG]
    arggh the tube looks orange and purple but they are friggin red in real life :grr:

    the nexus fan duct actually works lol + they look damn good

    I also bought "hub" that will go under the dvd drive coz I realized I didn't have enoughusb ports :eek:

    [​IMG]

    but there's just a small problem, I can't close the top part and to do that I'd have to open it up again but I'm too lazy to do that, so I'll fix that for the final assembly, which, I hope, I will start at the beginning of february.

    that's all for today, I might get my plexi glass on friday... I was supposed to get it on monday but the damn shop cut it in 5mm transparent(not red at all) plexi, so they have to do it again in 5mm red perspex this time :grr: so there will be an update on saturday or sunday, thanks for reading.


    Thanks to pc-koolance.eu for their support ! :)

    Very nice looking setup there mate. Being honest, I'm not the biggest fan of the actual case design itself, although the work you have done is extremely good. Beauty being in the eye of the beholder and all that :)

    I see you got the Koolance NB cooling block. I was thinking of expanding my own cooling loop with one of those. How did you find it? I have the same CPU block and think it's the dogs dangly bits tbh! :rock:

    I just have to respond, that case looks superb! Can't wait to see some more of it in the near future.

    That watercooling loop is beautifully done.
    Smaller tube for the chipset; awesome aesthetic.


    Really good work.

    Those fan ducts are pretty cool. Are they supposed to improve performance or just for looks?

    small changes

    thanks for your comments :)

    talladega, they are supposed to improve the airflow

    [ZiiP] NaloaC, the NB block is really great, it's just sad you can't have 10/13mm tubes with it.


    I reordered my plexi glass from another manufacturer last week so hopefully I will have all the plexi glass by the end of this month.... :sigh:
    and I will also have on of the side "shield" remade because I'm not happy with it's design, doesn't really fit the rest of the case . I'm also going to add my old aquaero that was laying around, I can't live without it !! :waah:

    what do you think ?

    I'm also going to change my name to dark 33, got enough of hearing ppl say that my name is evil ,CS:S noob name :yawn:

    I also received a new tool for Christmas :D

    can't wait to try it !

    thanks for reading !

    I never realised that the Nexus thingys might actually look cool inside a case.. I received one from Nexus earlier, but didn't really have any use or real interest for it. I DID try out that it indeed increases the airflow at longer distances from the fan, but in my quick'n'dirty test it only managed to rise the temperatures by 1 C.

    Good looking project, got a bit carried away there :)
