    Your skulltrail case mod was fantastic, made me want to water cool. So i did! Just one question though, have you chained the fans up together?

    Those fans are pretty sexy too!

    Hey, cheers for the kind feedback...........and added pressure :lol:

    I got to give a BIG shout out to Crucial UK who came good with a couple of 6GB kits of RAM. It wasn't my first choice kit but given the current economy, i'm more than grateful for them getting involved in the first place so thanks Crucial.

    Still not sure on SSD's yet but still a little while to go before i'll be needing those.

    Anyway, got all 12GB added to the MIP's RAM Freezers and hopefully should get a bit of proper case mods done over the holidays but i've been a little worried to ChainSaw any further until i decide on reservoirs.

    Well, time to make a whole new top cover for the rad box as i won’t be needing the power/reset button and just wanted something that looked a bit different as i’ve never really been to keen on the look of the standard 840 fan grills.

    Got one large piece of 7mm alu which will cover the entire top – all i got to do is round off the front to mimic the original, then cut the vent in and finally chamfer the edges.

    Lets see if my little B&D jigsaw can cope with 7mm alu

    Still got to draw file all edges and put the 45 degree angle on there but time and cold beat me today :(
