    A VRAM from my 780ti crashed, and they didn't have a new one were I bought it and for a little more money they get me a new 980. I get the new GPU and wait for the new block for taking some photos.

    I bought the GPU block and a blackplate, and a local shop give me a new liquid which they made.

    Two loops+ mayhems pastel.
    I wanted to have to different loops, one for the CPU and the other for the GPU, because I needed more presure form the pump for having two differents pressures in each radiator.

    It was like this until I finished the extension but I thought to take out the fornt of the case and the top part and flip the mother board and all the stuff.
    [​IMG]
    Front.
    This would be the fornt of the case and I will cut it by cnc, is methacrylate.
    [​IMG]
    would be the top part of the case, also cutted by cnc and is made from steel.
    [​IMG]
    I'm waitting for a budget of the cut and then I will start to do a cover for the mother board. After that I want to realign the blocks and radiators. The last part is to flip the interior of the case.

    The result was nice, and then I started to riveting it

    Then I putted the "legs" of the case. And the order from ek arrived, I buyed PETG rigid tubbing, blue fittings and a new radiator.

    For putting the fans in the new top part of the case I had to cut the new holes for it

    I engaged the extension to the case and sanded it for doing the first try of painting. I covered the PSU hole and a part of the front

    Update 27/01/16
    Hi, in this last 2-3 months I had some problems with the cnc cuts,a friend tried to cut it with his cnc, but the aluminion was to hard and he break the cutting top, we wasted 3 weeks trying to fix that.
    Then I started looking for a profesional company and I found had some trouble with them, the day i asked for a price they told me one amount, the next day that amount was increased but I accepted that offer. A week after that they didn't call me, I phoned them and they asked me to send again wat I wanted. And a week later, they gived up. After that I didn't keep in contact with that company.
    The I found an other company, they offer me some aluminium and the cuts for less than the 60%, but the shipping was bad and it last 2 weeks. I'm sorry for not posting anythink in this last 3 months, I had a lot of work too.

    Sandpapering and painting
    I figured out a little ramp on the extension, I disassembled and sanded it.
    Also I taked appart the full case for sandpapering and painting it.

    I finally finished sanding all the pieces, I'm measuring some parts for asking for an aluminium cut for the hole of the power supply and the front part, also I'm thinking of panting the black part with baked paint and to the interior parts with pearly blue.

    Update 21/03/16
    I'm preparing the extension, at first I didn't want to use nails on the grids but I finally putted it for confort, when I take it apart the grids or remove something from the case. I've made a small hole for pass trough the wires, it has to be sanded because, it is thick, I couldn't do it with the dremel and I finished using the radial cutting. I putted washers in the visible part for trying not to damage the blue washers.
