    modsquad, just read your Black Narcissus project log and it was amazing. The amount of money that is invested is just mind blowing.

    I loved it all apart from the window. Great attention to detail and very neat!

    GREAT WORK!

    Thanks Noni, that PG makes this one seem short.. :hehe:
    I built that machine as "cost no object"..It has become my everyday computer (typing @ you with it)..It runs great..
    The window, what can I say..Everything I build has the "evil-vibe"..Demons, skulls and the like..thats just me..

    Yeah, He used some to clean up his tubing then I made him some plastic ones that I made to clean up his IDE cables.
    I am planning to make a few of them out of aluminum myself as well as some plastic ones to tidy my power cables once I get to that point.
    A very cheap alternative for wires and such are basic plastic automotive wire seperators which are $10 per package from various suppliers. I may get a handful for other odds and ends.

    "Done" pics are still a few weeks away, (hell it could be another month) hydro. Sorry, that is the best I do.
    Todays game-plan is to finish the "must-have" wiring; "do-Up" the waterblocks with Arctic Sivler and push the power button.
    If all goes well, spend a few hours monitoring temps and drinkin' beer..

    SO, at best I could post a few pictures of BIOS screen shots and MT beer bottles.. :hehe: on Sunday..
    I don't foresee any problems, well you never know.. :worried:
    My only concern are the power-on and reset switches and there leds..
    I set them up after installing the MB and before mounting the pump in it's hole.
    If the leads are on the wrong MB pins, the pump will have to come back out to have access to that area of the MB (again--the small case)..

    @the Capt. : The Billet Specialties units are $10US (each)..I have seen the Mr. Gasket-style sparkplug wire separators at local (midwest :hehe: ) autoparts stores...IMO..No comparison..The BS-units are first class..Not sure if I can even use them on this project, but they will find a home in something I build-that is for sure..

    Well yeah, but I have what I need to do it myself in order to satisfy my frugal side. :D
    And the ones I found weren't as cheap looking as the Mr. Gasket style grippy clips.

    I have been into photography for years..I love shooting pictures..
    As for "final shots"..I would say another 3-4 weeks..
    There are still a lot of issues to take care of, including wiring:
    [​IMG]
    I will most-likely do an update for the Aqua-Computer Aquaero VFD set up and lighting. After that, the compulsory FIN pictures.. :thumb:

    It was about 30C in the garage that day.
    I don't think 41C is that bad. Should be OK..

    Thanks CH..
    The size of the case (compact), using the Asus MB with it's "hot-running" nForce4 SLIx16 chipset and the fact the h20-loop uses a single 120mm radiator cooling CPU-videocard-HD-MOSFETs lead me to wonder about temps prior to last weekend..
    By the end of the night with ambient temp dropping to 26C, we saw CPU temps 37-38C :brrr: :hehe: ..BUT--this was without the case(s) sidepanel..So, if the CPU-temp remains in the 40-45C range (I think it will) when all is said and done I will be happy..
    This weekend will include installing windows (not very exciting-I know) and getting the Aqua-Computer Aquaero VFD set up. The Aquaero VFD will not be as Ez as it sounds, lots of wires in a small area (the baybox)= :wallbash:
    Thanks for your continued support, we are almost FIN:
