    @Teyber: Phasechange wouldn't fit right... and watercooling looks much better.

    The CPU block has arrived. If you're very quiet you can hear it scream: "mod me!"

    There goes the inner piece...

    Cocaine anyone?
    [​IMG]
    And it fits.

    That's how it's supposed to be. I'm gonna put some black aluminium that's a little smaller on top of it. That way it will totally match the style we created earlyer.

    I started making the corners kinda round, starts looking good imho.


    More soon.

    Most of the modding stuff came in this week.
    I kinda started mounting some thing just to get an idea on how it will look.
    [​IMG]
    Led's were put into the front. But from behind, it ain't pretty.
    [​IMG]
    Solution: some black aluminium to cover the mess up. The pointed shape wasn't planned originally, but otherwise, the alu would interfere with the rest of the front.
    [​IMG]
    The wires going into the case trough a tiny hole. I'm still gonna put some mesh on them of course.
    [​IMG]
    Some other modding stuff...
    [​IMG]
    I made a small cut in the alu for the wires to go trough.

    More soon... (I hope)

    It's a Laing DDC-1T :)

    The reservoir arrived today. It was made by Peter Brinkhuis (thanks!. It might seem a little strange to put this kind of reservoir into the case, but it's just temporary until Blackcrown dumps his girlfriend and starts modding again. I already put in the fillport and the fittings, looks like this:

    Update-time!
    [​IMG]
    I started fillin' up the bays. First to go in was the pump, which I placed onto a quickly made platform. This looks well euhm 'not nice', but it won't be visible, so strenght is more important than looks.
    [​IMG]
    Next: the radiator, drilling the holes...
    [​IMG]
    ... with this baby I bought yesterday. Works like a charm, way better than a regular drill :/
    [​IMG]
    And mounted. On the down side of the radiator I did exactly the same.
    [​IMG]
    Some dead HDD's to see if it fits. It does, but what did you expect?
    [​IMG]
    Hmm... We've got meshX, we've got one ugly radiator?
    [​IMG]
    One, two, three... Bending time!

    Anyway to make a long story of bending and rebending short:

    The soldering work during CJ Live was done really poor. Time to put in some new leds :)

    Sir, can you put out the light please?

    More soon...

    Sucks about your broken acrylic, tha scoring method only works up to 3/32" or something thin like that, and you need to score it not cut into it. Nice looking mod, I like your universal theme.

    The CPU block in its place, still without LEDs but I like it already.
    [​IMG]
    I bought a universal vga block, since the AquagrafX I ordered will probably arrive in 2011 or so :|
    Anyway, universal my ass, the thing didn't fit so a custom bracket had to be made.
