    I agree. Awesome!:D
    It looks like you drilled the holes dry, though. A little water while drilling will make the edges clean enough to polish.

    thx m8´s

    @Cheapskate thx for the advice...we must try that out! its always a pain to get those little holes clear. Atm we´re using a very fine injection needle and a very thin acrylic glue to get drilled holes clear, during the glueing process the plexiglas is a litte bit solved so that the surface gets clear

    today we disassemble the old watercooling loop and took the old rez and cpu cooler away....then we added the new ones so that we could test how they would perform with the rest of the loop....everything is still leak free and the cpu temp is @ 22° in idle aftert 1 h TF2...


    but here some new pics

    today we made some progress on the right sidepanel and the top of the case. We want to change that part as well, so we started with a big window.....

    :rock: :thumb: Thanks a lot for the MotM Nominee!!! and good luck to all!! :thumb::thumb:

    beside that its time for a small update...in the last days we made some carbon fibre angles which we will use to mount 2 of the used radiators inside the case....they will later be placed inside of the lower case part...but that will come in the next days....

    we also started to build some custom mounting points for the case window, therefore we sanded the inside of the sidepanel and then glued (with j.b.weld) a few locknuts to the sidepanel so that we could later screw through the plexiglas from the inside so that there will be no visible screwheads on the outside....

    Interesting project. Like overall design and some details. Although it's a little big to me.
    Impressive work, anyway.

    :clap: thx guys!!! :clap:

    yesterday and today we made some progress on the "Mounting Thing" for the radiators :D....
    we attached the carbon corners to the plexiglas parts and also mounted them on 2 sheets of black plexiglas on which everything will stand. The Black parts will also be used to mount everything on the bottom of the case.....

    Beside that we prepared the first fan for the radiators, to see if it will look like we thought...before we start to build another 3 of them.....

    Nice Fan. Are the radiators not a little bit to close?

    Now that is awesome!!!!!

    got to say some of the shapes you chose are kinda weird but the overall look is awesome! Some of the details i don't agree with too much, but to each his own.

    But i do appreciate good workmanship, and here sir is a fine fine example.

    keep it up! :rock:

    :thumb: thx :thumb:

    just to share this...here is a pictures of the radiator housing with both cable routing brackets :D

    [​IMG]


    beside that we closed some holes in the upper side panels which we not need anymore....as we were closing the holes we thought that it might be a good decision to replace the glue under the locknuts with something more solid ....like metal...so we welded the locknuts on....

    then we stripped down the lower side panels to their raw metall and removed all plastic parts from the first build....
