DONE! Yessssssss! FINITOOOOO! You heard me- Done! I decided the 5 year mark was way to long to work on one project. -I got the back off by pulling the end of the reservoir... and a couple of screws. I'd say the tricky bit was prying a really settled in O-ring free. -Skipping a bit, (You'll see all the holes I punched in the back eventually,) I started final assembly. I put the PSU back in, and found all the wires to plug in. -I'm slapping the fan panel in and snaking the internal wires out the access hatch here. Looking at this pic I realize I probably didn't add enough airflow. -Oh, NO! I'm all out of fancy computer water! -Oh, wait... I had some. I mean, It won't run as fast as Perrier, but I'm in a hurry. -Oh sh*t. What does rotten water smell like? I obviously thought I wouldn't have been delayed as much as I was. -I did a 15 second leak test after tossing this thing around like a beach ball. Just kidding, I just filled it and primed the pump. -Trying to get some internal pics here, but you really can't even get a finger in this thing. -Yeah, that's electrical tape. I'm not proud. I don't remember ever testing the power cord, either. -I omitted the kinda clumsy core insertion. You can imagine how after all the modding to the can that it might not be very round. I needed some razor blade prying and even a rubber mallet to get the back panel inserted. Anyway, this is the light/fan/control switch access hole. Are you ready for final photos? OK, hold onto something! HERE THEY COME! -But first, let me show you this weird UFO I saw the other day. -Spooky -Is that a little alien in the window?! -Yeah, You knew I was an evil sh*t. I'll get some proper pics out. You only had to wait 5 years. What's day or two going to matter? Thanks again to my sponsors. I never would get to do stuff like this without them.
