    Predisposition of pass-through fittings from the tank holder support to the opposite side.

    A job to lose your mind far from simple given the three walls to be passed and all the processing that ensued.

    I started by taking the measurements of all the center distances in relation to the tank that I will mount to then proceed to the drilling with the appropriate cutting cups of various sizes on the support, on the frame and then on the MB tray.

    Later I had to cut the shield to make the fittings fit 90 degrees (later we will see why and how the tubes will be fitted).

    I also had to make a custom-made cover to close the larger hole on the frame to make sure that the grommets of the feed-throughs remained incorporated into the frame to ensure that the bowl-holder cover rested well on the inside.

    In the photos the whole procedure, and you understand them better than I mean.

    Stay tuned.

    Here is the modified front of the Torque completely finished.

    As you can see from the photos I made the side openings to improve the airflow in intake.

    the end result with the metal grids is of an unprecedented evil just as I wanted it.

    Stay tuned.

    I admire anyone who has the 'undercarriage' to do this kind of stuff... I still 'brick it' doing stock builds, sometimes.

    Complete the back of the mb tray.

    In the photos we can see the two wall-mounted fittings in the high rear part that will be used for the return connection of the CPU wb, in the lower part we can also see another pass-through fitting that will serve for the draining of the system.

    The thick frame is also mounted and finished in the back to contain all the wiring (in the photos the details of the finish).

    Also mounted the radiator on the front (with relative fans) and in the photos we can see that in the lower part I have already mounted a 90 degree fitting to which a head will be mounted and subsequently the connection pipe to the fitting for the draining mentioned before.

    Stay tuned.

    Realization custom back cover for the 2 D5 pumps completely made, painted and airbrushed by hand.

    In the photos we will see the assembled block and all the processing of these two details.

    Later we will see the disposition in the case.

    Stay tuned.

    Here is also the finished top.

    In the photos we will see the various stages of assembly of custom parts after painting and airbrushing.

    Obviously the logos will be backlit.

    Update.

    Here is the video of step 2.

    We will see in sequence all the processing steps and all the parts made in this phase.

    Make yourself comfortable and have a good vision.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Also finish the two side covers of the psu.

    Obviously both are equipped with backlighting with dedicated graphics as planned of the project.

    In particular, note the three buttons on the MB side that will be used to change the light effects of the fans and the addressable LEDs of the Synapsis logos on the top, as well as those of the wiring cover on the opposite side to the MB.

    The three buttons will act on 3 separate control units and then a button for each control unit.

    Stay tuned.

    I apologise for being thick - or overthinking it - but those 6 'red' screws look like they allow what they're holding to fall inside the case; what am I missing, please?

    The 6 screws fix the backlit panel inside the module of the case that I provisionally disassembled just to mount this panel:dremel:

    Difficult jobs.

    Connection of the 2 radiators.

    In the photos we will see the connection of the 2 radiators on the front with that of the top through the fittings.

    Work rather problematic due to the very limited maneuvering spaces and the space occupied by the components.

    To complicate matters is the fact that both radiators will be in push / pull configuration and therefore to keep the fans inside, the radiator on the top has been turned upside down due to the attacks too close together between the 2 with consequent impossibility of connection. Consequently, it was necessary to connect snake and extension curves with a myriad of 90-degree bends, all of which obviously with articulated joints.

    In short, a job to lose your head as we will see in the photos.

    Later, however, all the work will be better understood at the time of the tubing and when the internal fans will be installed.

    The work continues.

    Final assembly of the stealth style front nose with backlit graphics and all the saints begin to come with the wiring.

    Stay tuned.

    The complicated jobs continue and the saints who come down don't count, when you think that the wiring is a headache ...

    But the wiring is one of the many jobs, in the photos we will also see the assembly of the pump block in the various phases as I had anticipated in the previous posts, the definitive assembly of the PSU with the myriad of connections that are necessary for lighting buttons and control of light games , hub for fans (also a myriad of changes here) and you name it more (in the end you will not have to see practically nothing of the wiring apart from the sleeve).

    Note the cable clamp next to the pump block completely made by hand to keep the cable cables in the intended position.

    It doesn't miss much, we are almost at the moment of realizing the loop I'm waiting for the reservoir without which I can't finish its support then mount the loop.

    Stay tuned.
