    Ok so now the new top for the H100 rad is done!

    After id done the drawing it was just to get the acrylic fastened in the mill and pressing play.

    Some black paint and a testfitting to make sure the holes line up with the fans

    if i donated a usb vinyl player would you incorporate it to keep the case "stock?"

    consider the idea of taking it to a lan and then put on billie holiday when you start a match. :lol:

    Loads of space pfft! only the drivetrain would take space, the pcb is easily hidden below the spinning plate of oblivious doom!
