    Yeah, a few guys told me that at the time for the planning phase, (but with the change to put a reservoir in the red acrylic roof). I din't really want this one WCed since I already have one WCed rig, that weights a lot, and I wanted this one to be lighter.

    Also, I find WC a bit overrated, but that's probably just because I didn't have a good place to put my radiator, and thus end up with half-bad temps.

    @ the end of the day! even watercooled rigs are aircooled!....but i love the application.

    its a challange turning the water setup into a feature !

    that being said ... air cooling can't touch it.

    Water or not!

    Thats still one of the coolest theme mods ive seen to date :)

    Final Pictures Part 1/2

    [EDIT: Moved final pictures here from page 1 to be kinder to those still on modems ;). The comments made before this post is on the final pictures, sorry for messing up the order, but it's better for the people living in the swamps this way... EDIT]

    The case weighs in at about 13Kg with all hardware installed. My old case weights about 33Kg, so it’s a pretty large improvement.

    I used a total of 128LEDs, plus a few that got burnt along the way.

    The final result:

    Well, that's one of the things Westwood couldn't decide on. In-game the roof is actually red, but in one of the videos, it's grey, and in the other ones, it's dark grey.

    I went with the clean alu-look since I wouldn't have to worry about paint wearing of, and about getting the paint to stick to the plates.
