    All my WC gear arrived today from alphacool so got to work doing a quick install for leak testing.. so far so good, perfect seal all round... Still, i have my doubts as to weather my mobo is gonna fit as the barbs from the rad n HD cooler will sit very close to it..

    Anyways, here's some pics..

    Nice, very nice..

    I am glad the folks at bit-tech showcased this project, if not I may have missed it (so many projects, soo little time)..Well deserved and congrats..
    Your "style" of case-mod is what I enjoy..
    We can still identify the case you started with, but you have taken it to the next-level (and beyond).. I equate your style with modified 1960's American "muscle-cars"....
    We know its a 63' Chevy SS, but did you notice what he did with that--, slick the way he worked that widget into the--.. The reason I love your project is because I feel my stuff has the same vibe..Your a man after my own heart.. :thumb:
    It's funny..Just the other day I posted on my PL "no one is using black Tygon and stainless steel-springs".. You made a liar out of me..and I am glad you did .. 5-star work....once again..

    Nice, very nice..

    Really liking this project log. I found the extended version of the case available for 150 quid and snapped one up as quick as I could. My plan is to do an Aqua Computer WC setup but I dont have tools or workspace to do a complete mod the way I want.

    The polished parts look good, I wet sanded and polished my Lian Li PC6070 the same way, took days but looks pretty good. Its a little worn now and needs a really good going over again to get it back like it was though :sigh:

    this looks really good mate, i could never bring myself to put thta much effort in, besides im not as clean / careful to do something like this, il end up trashing the mess
    i make, which brings me to the ultimate question...

    Well well well.. Been ages since i've looked at this thread... Time to get back to work!!!

    Some major changes with the project..

    WC is out, had to sell of all my gear while i was sick... Using a 2.4p4 celeron system at the mo.. Oh the joy!!!

    Anyways.. New bench polisher is on the way so i can finish the door.. New system is gonna be based on a Core2Duo E6300.. Need a mobo n psu but theres no rush as i wanna finish the case first. Everything is gonna be air cooled, i spend far too much time messing with my pcs that WC will just get in the way.. that n the fact i spend €600 in alphacool last time.. I should be shot!!

    Hope to have an update over the weekend, need to get the workshop cleaned up, chase out some spiders n get to work..

    Ltr...
