    Seemed to work OK with a little WD40 sprayed on every now and again :thumb:

    Well after humming and harring about which pump/reservoirs i was going to use, the final decision came down to what would actually fit.

    Due to the placement of the bottom two 240 radiators i'm going to lose at least one drive bay, probably two and given i'm going to be running three loops it came down to a couple of RP-450X2's.

    I got to say my initial impression of these is nice but those logo's just had to go so set about making them fit in with the rest of the mod.

    I had to ditch the original bezels and black M3 hex bolts and replace them with slightly shorter countersink ones so once the plexi had been countersunk, the heads would be flush to allow my new hand cut bezels to mount directly to the plexi.

    The last couple of mock-up shots show how they fit in with a wide screen TFT just below - obviously they will be powder coated and painted in the not to distant future :hip:

    Why not remove the feet on the mini stacker? It'll look more flush with each other.

    ... or maybe you too discovered the beauty that is WD?

    They are very nice reservoirs, the new face plate makes them look even better.

    Don't forget tapping too :D WD makes for awesome tapping lube especially with the little tube insert :D and a small bit on a clean rag can give edges of plexi a little zing to :p oh man how i love that stuff :rock:

    Cheers all, greatly appreciated thanks :thumb:

    Got the side panels cut down to size for the rad box and then went about fitting four flush mount vents using the mesh out of Bitspower rad grills and used the actual grill as the template to hand cut the four openings pretty much as i did a while back on a Corsair 800D mod which gives that kinnda simple but effective kind of look and should look good with the red LED fans behind.

    Just got to do the other side now and then two in each side of the main case but i think i'll concentrate on getting the rad box finished before moving onto the main chassis :)
