    floppy res seems like a nice idea to me, quite small and compact, but what size tubes will it take, other then that, waiting to see some stuff installed :)

    it takes G1/4" threads, so im shoving some 1/2" barbs in to complete the loop...

    i will hopefully get some piccys of it later!

    well heres todays update....

    [​IMG]

    ive got the Res mounted with the frount screws, but havn't got the bit of aluminium with me, so it doen't look to good... also, theres a clear / uv blue acrylic raditor shroud / box to go between the fans and the rad....

    [​IMG]

    another pic. of the res....

    [​IMG]

    And the RAM goes in.... (looks like Mushkin Redline, and is DDR-500)

    [​IMG]

    and in goes the 160Gb Hitachi deskstar....

    [​IMG]

    Installing the cables for the Vantec Mexus CPU (pump) control and Temp display..

    sensors on the HDD,

    [​IMG]

    The CPU

    [​IMG]

    and the *case* temp is put on the outside of the rad where the cooler water exits..

    [​IMG]

    and a lovely large mass of boxes....

    heres how we are at the moment.....

    it seems i need some more barbs and some cable tiding stuff, then its pretty much done..

    There seems to be a slight gap on each side of the DVD drive, you can see the light shining through the gaps... It is just me or have you noticed that, because if you put a interrnal LED in there it'll shine through, could look cheap and lack precision... its probably just me or the photo and it'll turn out great
