    Looking good so far, I like the fact that you are using older parts for the WC it shows your creativity, and it looks good! Is this case going to hold 1 or 2 computers it appears you have 2 front panels unless I'm mistaken.

    Thanks mate. :D

    No,this case is for only one computer. I used two front panels because front panel is chepar the just two front usb ports. So,I said-why not? You can choose between left or right side or even use both. My plan was to solder headphone jack from one to another so it can be used two hedphones at same time,but I decidet to leave as is-this with additional sound card could lead to interesting results. :D

    Here is the promised update. :D

    Today I have been testing the watercooling equipment and cleang radiators. I found out that my fittings on CPU block and reservoir are leaking like mad so I took reservoir from the loop and replaced fittings on CPu block with some barbs from old Thermlatake radiator. It worked,and radiator is now clean. I also ordered some fittings for reservoir from ebay.

    I also soldered cables to switches and placed front panel cables-cover from second microphone jack was removed.

    And one pic that I really like-sun made nice shadow on Scorpio next to Reaper.

    Final pics of today's update are here-they are the reason I waited with posting. I waited until was dark so I can take pics of LED's turned on. First one was in total dark,second one with light turned on and third was taken with flash on.

    Really Nice, but I am biased towards layered builds. Looking forward to seeing this one :)

    It is really unique modular PSU with cool color scheme and 80 Plus GOLD certificate.:rock:

    And now-the case update. I finally received my new MBO tray thet will allow me to put ATX MBO inside of the case.

    Some comparison with the old one:

    This is how it will be fitted (of course,it will be straight):

    That's all for now folks-next update will bring completed prototype and then I will start with the real,plexi case.

    Merry X-mas. :clap:

    Today I fitted new MBO tray and improved a covers (added toothpicks as a spacers XD). Prototype is 95 % finished-I only need to fit holders for add-on cards. This will be done tomorrow when local hardware store opens. ;)
