    Looking very excellent mate :jawdrop::thumb:, what cutting tool did you use for such clean cuts?, I'm guessing a scrollsaw/fretsaw with the little holes in the cut out pieces.

    Yeah, just an ordinary fret saw with 42TPI blades.

    I didn't take any pictures of cutting these but here's one i made earlier :D

    Well i just turned the standard 6 drive bays into 4 to allow the two radiators to mount below in a separate little rad box.

    Sounds easy..........well it was really but i had to be double sure of all measurements while cutting down the original drive cage and also while folding the new rad box as 1mm out and it would throw the entire chassis out but luckily my measuring skills didn't let me down and everything lines up perfect and square :thumb:

    I'm trying to get everything finished so i can go about stripping it all down and getting it to powder coat by Friday.

    Nice work on the rad brackets. I really need to get myself a bending brake, would make life so much easier.

    Cheers guys, always a pleasure, never a chore posting here :lol:

    Still a canny way to go but i just thought i’d show you this nice neat little hose routing from top to bottom of the chassis which turned out pretty good and a few other random shots of where things are at the end of the day :naughty:

    Got all the chassis back from powder coaters at lunch time today in totally flawless Carbon Black to match the Carbon Bitspower fittings and set about getting it built back up which is the bit i like best seeing it all come together.

    Anyway, my life is currently on hold until i get this complete as it starts its journey to Germany for CeBit on the 22nd so best get my skates on :worried:

    Have to say this is probably my favourite looks/performance mods I have seen & after seeing how you worked the tubing & connectors it's got me wanting to give water cooling a shot, totally neat mod coolmiester :thumb:.

    My nerves would be wrecked thinking of my case being lugged around by couriers though I'd never let them take care of 1 of my cases :D, but if I did I'd have to make a custom mould that fills the internals & pack it really well on the outside too, overkill packing :D:rock:.

    lol, when i said it starts its journey i should have broke it down a bit better :D

    This and another mod leaves my place in Newcastle on the 22nd when i drive it to my buddy Tom's in Oxford (267 miles) who then drives it over to Coolermaster HQ in Venlo (375 miles) for early morning on 23rd along with his case mod so they can pack them and transport them to Cebit and get assembled on their booth.

    I then go pick Tom up on the 27th and we both head off to Eindhoven (610 miles) where we spend the night and take in the local hostelries :naughty:

    The following morning we push on up to Cebit (225 miles) and see all our hard work on show.

    Total round trip for me is 1600+ miles plus the 530 miles the week before dropping of at Toms so its a pretty hectic couple of weeks.

    I did a CeBit 2008 Road Trip post a couple of years back which shows the main trip, start to finish, plus a look around CeBit :)
