    I saw all this great mods on this site and I thought, I want one of those.
    So I asked God to make me a design of a great mod, and he said:'Do it yourself.'
    I started thinking and experimenting and at last, I've made this design made of pine wood with a lot of tubes for cooling:

    FRONT:
    [​IMG]

    SIDE
    [​IMG]

    When I had this design, I asked God to make me this mod. And he said:'Do it yourself.'
    So I started working day and night on this thing and at last I had a front and a rear and a weird thing for containing the tubes:

    [​IMG]

    Then I was tired and I decided to buy some little elves to make the rest and they started making a removable side with on the back iron tape so it can be hold on its place with magnets:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And we put it all together (big steel pipe will contain radiator):
    [​IMG]

    We worked some more and we got this:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I was very happy with it so we started with the tube that will contain the HD
    At the top and bottom a 92mm fan:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here you see it placed into the mod( you also see a temporarily psu):
    [​IMG]

    Then I started working on the tubing and this is a result:
    [​IMG]

    Front:
    [​IMG]
    Side:
    [​IMG]

    In the mean time, my litle elves made a reservoir in the style of the mod:
    [​IMG]

    Here it lies on top of the mod, but its place will change:
    [​IMG]

    Global image:
    [​IMG]

    You see on the side of the removable side a Pentium 2 cover, well I needed something for on the side so I searched and I found in my cpubox a nice pentium 2:
    [​IMG]

    I used it:
    [​IMG]

    I had to break down the mod in order to make a hole for the psu(it won't be the last time I brok it down):
    [​IMG]

    I also made a hole in the psu for the tubing:
    [​IMG]

    Here it nicely fits:
    [​IMG]

    Next I started closing the mobo side with some pinewood, there is a 2 to 3 mm between every plank.

    Upperview with HD container/cooler:

    Front with reservoir:
    [​IMG]

    Second upperview:

    Side:

    [​IMG]

    Other side:
    [​IMG]

    Rear:
    [​IMG]

    Front:
    [​IMG]

    I still have a lot of work to do, and I have to choose which color for the watercooling and tubes etc.
    Please say what you think.
    btw this all didn't happened on one day ;)

    A true 'Home Depot' build.:hehe:
    I'm surprised you didn't go for the PVC option. It would look cleaner. -It's just a bit more work to sculpt the turns. It would also be quieter.

    After a month it is time for an update, and I hope to do one every week. I'm going to make a lot of changes, and I'm starting with the biggest change: THE RADIATOR

    THE RADIATOR
    I rather like to make something than to buy something.

    The advantages of making it yourself

    You can choose the shape
    You can choose the materials
    cheep

    The disadvantages:

    First time
    hard to make one as good as the ones you can buy

    The design (total length is 61cm)

    Inside:
    [​IMG]
    the location where it wil be placed:
    [​IMG]

    Making it:

    Getting the pieces:

    The pictures speek for themselves:

    Making the suspension for the central tube
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Together:

    I have to make it all fit and maybe cut a window so I can see my hard work, but that's not for today.
    Please share your opinion and if something's not clear, just ask.

    UPDATE
    Again it is time for an update, I've continued the work on the radiator:
    First, I made 4 windows:
    [​IMG]

    The windows are covered with a kind of plactic that is kept on its place with the iron belt:
    [​IMG]

    Assembling:

    With this, the central tube will be hold on its place:

    This is still a prototype. The real deal will be more perfect.
