    loving the attention to detail. most everything else i have seen looks pathetic compared to this, no offense to all other great modders, especially not to the carbon fiber(my favorite material) king, Cleveland216.:rolleyes:

    sorry, i just HAD to say that:lol:

    Each detail is so well planned for the project that everything fits perfectly in the project.

    Not interrested in hearing the price before you order? Done deal! :lol:

    Thanks for the kind words man! :)

    Mmmm... Atomic Nuts... :)

    Thanks man! :)

    That's just too much of a compliment... It's gonna go to my head! :lol:

    Thanks a lot man, I'm not worthy of such words! :)

    The word "thanks" is starting to feel hollow to me... You guys are truly amazing! But... Thanks! :)

    Small update.

    I know I said I'd be working on designing a new case for the SSD, but I have designers block this weekend.

    But on the other hand, I decided to put the system in the case instead! :)

    Thermal Armour mounted:

    [​IMG]

    Not too bad! :)

    Decided to put this in the thermal armour. Had to re-solder the wires, as it only needed like 10 mm of wire to be mounted.

    [​IMG]

    First test. Please ignore the small mess :lol: :

    With all these bottles of different fluids, I'm pretty happy that I'm sober and have no kids running around... Who knows that could go in the mouth in this environment! :lol:

    [​IMG]

    It WORKS! By GOD I'm happy! :)
    Everything is running around 30 degrees while idle in my appartment. I think it's like 25 degrees in here, so that's the baseline.

    I played a bit of BF3, and the gfx went up to 53-54 degrees. This is with the 240 rad on minimum rpm, and the Laing on 9 volts. Not too bad! :)
    The CPU is on the single 120 rad, also lowest rpm on the fan, and 9 volts on the pump.
    It hit 50 degrees centigrade while gaming. I'm pretty pleased with this! :)

    I finally put the back on it, and got all the wires sorted. To be honest there is NOT a lot of room for all that, but after 30 minutes I got it on. :)

    Right now it looks like this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the best thing... I can throw this old thing away!

    [​IMG]

    It's been good to me, but it's time for a change! :)

    C ya soon with more updates guys! :)

    Didn't realise you were re-modding it lol! I'm with all the above too - the nuts are inspired.

    Awesome sauce, keep modding!

    If I had a nickel for everytime I heard I have the best nuts ever... :lol:

    Thanks man! :) I'm just thrilled that it works, and running at nice temps! :)

    Thanks a lot man! :)

    Well.. I really wanted red and blue, but I still havn't found a dye that will stand up to engine coolant... But I'm still looking though! :)

    if youd gotten it to be red, along with wite mobo and blue, i would currently be worshiping you! Oh, wait, im doing that already! And no thanks nescessary, we should be thanking you for doing such great mods!

    and wait.... engine coolant(temps must be icey!)? water coolant just isnt enough i guess. one wonders just how far something can be taken :lol: and is that a discreet video card/laptop card? sorry if i missed a post!

    The colors in that sleeve create an amazing effect. The CPU block also fits perfectly in the project.

    Will you mod the motherboard collers? In my humble opinion their color does not fit in the general layout of the project.

    This was seriously good before, now it's just going to a totally different level, the attention to detail is amazing. way beyond 99.9% of builds.
    Amazing work once again:clap::clap::clap::clap:

    Don't know why, but thought I had seen this through to completion, so suddenly realising there was so much to catch up was nice. Sweet work as ever mate, can not wait to see where this goes, looking more and more awesome every time :L Wish I had the imagination and the skills to do things to such a high standard as you. Keep it up ;)

    Thanks man! :)

    There are a couple of reasons for the engine coolant.
    1. It does not loose the color over short time, and others liquids I've used has also had a tendency to color the tubing.
    2. Since I have copper radiators and aluminum blocks, there will be galvanic corrosion, and engine coolant is amazing to prevent this anoying phenomenon.

    Not really sure what you mean about the video card/graphics card? :)


    Thanks man, me too! :)

    I will have to agree. Not really sure what to do about it right now, but I'll probably figure something out with the green on the mobo. :)

    Thanks a lot man! :)

    I shall bow and say thank you! :)

    Well, it was made for other hardware to start with, but since I decided to use it for myself, there was a lot more work to be done! :)
    Thanks a lot! :)




    I hope that is answer enough! :lol:

    Yeah you didn't have to go too far back to find them! :lol: I made the friday! :)
    Thanks a lot man! Means a lot to me! :thumb:

    Hi Angel.

    I'm glad that the CPU-cooler works that well, allthough I had my reservations in the very beginning, when you first showed it to us. I'd say that the CPU-cooler i smy favourite part of this build, especially with this lovely detail of the atom-screws :)

    The choice of cooling-aid fits perfect imho, and makes the whole thing look like a chemical experiment. Matches the whole thing fantastic ;)

    It's connected with a flexible riser card.
