    Good modding nice clean cuts pretty well thought out not to sure about housing the pump so close to the hard drives due to possible leaks and vibration from the pump when operational, over time this could damage drives if excessive like some of these pumps are.

    Good Luck Hope To See More On This Soon

    @zhangmaster12: Haha. okay, I understand :D

    @Evil-Inc-UK: You're looking at the wrong sketch. Further down you have this one:

    I'll also put the hardrives over the reservoir, so there should be no risk at all :)

    Ofcourse I'm not going to use those components, They are just for "template" so you can see about how it will be :)

    Awesome mod so far! How did you make the casing for the pump? Just a sheet of Al and bent it? Did you make grooves on one side so it was easier to bend?

    Thanks! :)

    I used 1mm aluminium sheet. Bent it in a vice, and with some help with a hammer and a piece of wood I got a nice bend.
    Although the last bend was hard to do, cause the casing hit the vice, so I had to bend it with my hands and then make the bend better with the hammer and a piece of wood. You can actually see some marks on the casing. But it doesn't matter, you know I am going to putty and paint it, so it will be nice and smooth ;)

    i also agree,

    basically, you've got the GPU block in parallel with a bit of tube, and as the GPU block has a higher resistance, the water will naturally flow down the path of least resistance, a bit like electricity, so the cooling on your GPU will be very poor.

    just a bit of watercooler to watercooler advice :thumb:

    nice project btw, nice few ideas.

    mod on :dremel:

    Thanks, but you have all missunderstood me ^^
    The reason why the gpu tubing is red, is because I didn't know if I were going to use a GPU block. So i made both paths. Ofcourse i'm not so stupid that I would make a tube directly to the reservoir if I am going to use a GPU block :D

    Oh noes!, I didn't mean it in that way either. I know that you didn't think that I am stupid, that is only my opinion. If someone would have done 2 paths like that I would think that that person was more or less stupid :p.

    It is all my fault, I havn't been clear :wallbash: :)
    Sorry

    Update 14/11 - 06

    Update 14/11 - 06

    Update again :) Got up from the bed by 9 o'clock, ate breakfast and sent some packages aso.
    But the main thing is ofcourse the projekt ;)
    Went to Söderströms järn & metall (Southstreams iron & metal ;)). Got my hands on a piece of aluminum.. 4kg. It costed me 100kr, which is about 14$
    And as you maybe understand, it is supposed to be for the front.

    [​IMG]

    Exactly 3mm

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The paint has been dryin' for 1 week.
    Hardly no orange-surface nor FLA

    [​IMG]

    And the wax ;)

    [​IMG]

    Nice and shiny

    [​IMG]

    Tried polishing the aluminum. There was some kind of oxidation that was pretty hard to get through

    [​IMG]

    After 1000grit and autosol, not to good in my opinion.. need some tools to get the real-deal ;)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Started grinding on the small radiator. And it surpriced me a bit when I found out that the original color was blue-metallic

    [​IMG]

    Ready for paint

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Pretty dark pic, but you with bright monitors can se the reflection

    [​IMG]

    And here they are, resting and hardening

    Some dremel accessories is never bad :)

    It's so pretty. I need a new dremel and a bunch of accesories. O ya and a clean garage that won't eat my dremel whole along with the bits. Jeezus I lost my dremel for a few weeks. IO was like where is that damn thing. Found it. But I love the mod and the painting. But maybe you should get an orbital sander makes sanding much faster. If not go wet dry 400-600-800-1000-autosol That is anodized aluminum won't oxidize cuase it already is. A very hard coat of xidation btw.

    Yeah ok, thanks :)
    I'll have to do the grinding more seriously.. think I had 600 and then jumped directly to 1000. And I didn't grind so much :p
    But that was just a test so it doesn't matter really :)
