    Awesome. The set of parts from http://www.aquatuning.de have arrived. Time to get serious about the look of the machine. - The side panel just got replaced so the pictures with the electronic decal etc is no longer existing.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    First I'll like to show the http://www.aquatuning.de parts:

    Secondly I'll like to show the hardware and some other packets containing hardware.

    Ram have been replaced so no Corsair and no Corsair fans.

    So after a little time with the radiator, I finally got pretty satisfied except for a few air bubbles witch I'll fix:

    Mod of radiator.

    Here is the radiator from another angle. As you probably clearly see, the mod is very reflective, but I doubt the light from the fans will shine it much up. I hope for just a little though:

    Ok today I started mounting:

    After a little thinking and tinkering I got the pump connected with the reservoir and the radiator mounted.

    I also finished the "mod" I wanted to do on it and I think it turned out ok.

    Now I need to have a hole made in the reservoir plating stand, so I can access the speed of the pump more easy than dissembling everything and so on. But here is what I got done today:

    Again, thanks for watching. :clap:

    Today was hard. I disassembled the build from my Corsair 780t chassis and got the hole fixed in order to gain access to the pumps speed more easily and installed the AX1500i.

    Tomorrow I'll install the Rampage V Extreme and probably also the graphic cards and my hard drive.

    Okay so I decided it was time to get this done.

    I moved the PSU back as much as I could in order to get a bit more room.

    Since the ASUS RAMPAGE V EXTREME is a bit large for the chassis I experimented a bit, but remade a few times asked a lot of questions and so on.

    Got creative and insecure about how the side panel should look.

    The side panel is still a work in progress.

    Work in progress.

    The window is the thing bothering me. It's blocking the view to the vital parts of the machine and that needs to be sorted, but right now I got what I got.

    Gorgeous build!
    I don't like/understand the stripes/decals on the glass/acrilic....I see them only as a nuisance/obstruction between the "goood stuff" and the eye of the watcher

    Thanks bro means a lot. I'm really working on something for the window. I agree that the sight is obstructed.

    A few better pictures.

    I managed to get a few good pictures, I'll still do it better when I get the GFX's under water, but for now, I hope you'll like this:

    The radiator mod:
