    Hello again.

    Mid week update, My first ever I think.

    I have been working on the GPU, making a way for the heat to be removed to the outside of the case. As well as making a way to to trap the heat from entering the inside of the case. and still have a way to connect a monitor to the GPU with out letting the heat in. So what I have done is make a cover that will do both, and then I will make one more to cover the monitor cable plug to hide it as well.

    I will also be making a cover to hide the PCI-e cable on the GPU.



    So this is what will be going on behind the GPU to get the Hot air out. this will also stop the PCI-e cable from getting in the way as well. that will run from the top down into the bottom of the case and back up to the MoBo.

    Then the pillar face cover will go back over the top. so non of it will be seen.

    Also in the last photo. you can see just a small notch in the center that's where the hdmi will run into the bottom of the case and out the back near the IO port. did not think to say anything about it. as It was the quickest thing to fit. :p

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Hello again.


    Today I painted the Cover for the GPU that I made. Now it looks like it belongs to the GPU cover.




    All the gaps have been filled, then primed in a single pack.

    I then painted it in a white acrylic single pack then sanded with 600 wet&dry paper.
    I then added the red line. And then painted it in a 2 pack clear coat.

    Hello again,

    Over the last day or so I have been putting the outside loop and blocks together,

    I glued then from the inside & out.
    And there are no leeks from any of the tubing, Happy days.:thumb:

    Leek testing, and this one had one. I filled then all up with water. added a plug to one end, added some air pressure to the other end to make sure they will work.



    [​IMG]

    I modded the SSD as well I know its been done before but it still looks cool. and I have never tried it before so I just had to give it a go,

    The PCB had to be flipped over for the ram to be seen. and I put some 1mm clear behind the window.

    A little gray changes the look dramatically, and I vote warp core. :lol: The aliens will be mad when they find you have been sharing their tech online.

    Damn it! I hoped for white with green details :D


    Everything white, but with green watercooling, water, fittings and so on.

    And the 970 Turbo GPU, which has red details could be green instead of red's ;)


    It looks good man! Really like how you do something special with the water cooling :D :thumb:
