    Hmm... I'm actually surprised at the stock quality of Aqua Computer stuff. It's surprisingly bad. Those water blocks look like they were machined with a dull bit at too high a feed rate and the bottom looks hand polished almost. Ugh... are all Aqua Computer products like that?

    Sorry, machinist snob in me coming through...

    I think the aqua computer stuff isn´t as good as they always say they are. Only the cuplex xt and the aquadrive are "well" done. I also own a aquagrafx for my nvidia 5900 and it looks very good.
    I´m heavily disappointed with the Ramplex and twinplex pro chipset cooler they have many scratchs. :grr: :grr:

    Only for you, but bad image quality! I promise better pics later!

    The borders are not 100% perfect mounted, no time....later

    Note the Carbon among the borders. Some kind of "magic" stuff is behind the carbon, but I will not unveil it, not yet...

    Those chrom profiles look really sweet when mounted.. I have a stacker too and I was thinking about polishing the profiles, but i were in doubt how it would look. Now I know so I think i´m gonna do it ! looks very cool :)

    Kind regards Thizen

    Hi, hi again!

    I will show you some improvements. The pics are speaking for themselves. I will add a few comments later.
    I am sure you "will" enjoy!!!

    A fortaste: The whole case was by a body painter(carbon black). It shines more then ever! My magic stuff behind the carbon on the front of the case will be unveiled. (It is possible to turn the PC on without touching it^^) ......

    Note: The parts are not finally mounted 100% so there are some scratches and some parts are not accurately mounted!

    First my working place at home:

    My TFT: (fits perfect to my mod)

    Wow, I love the use of CF, but I'm not sure I like it with the black mesh on the front. Too busy, I think. Anyway, you definitely are doing a great job on this!
