    I corrected a pipe that it is very corved and forced GPU. After I put pump, flow indicator, aquaero and filter. I know how install aquaero, but pump, filter and flow ind, I don't know.

    I don't like that the power supply only you can install with up fan position, maybe I moddify undercase to rotate power supply 180º....

    I think that tomorrow I will found a solution...

    See, I have kids and phrases like "don't touch this" usually get met with gross little kid finger prints all over it.

    Props for the dedication, it's looking very nice!

    Hi subbers!!!!

    I come with 2 updates, paint and restoration of fan and radiator.

    Start!!!

    In first step, I would like paint with chrome paint, I try but I don't like effect and finished. And I decided use spray paint in white aluminum color.

    First with fan. I like it too much, have a gun metal aspect!!!


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Following with rad. I polish and I decided don't paint, Rad have steel in both sides. Polish and paint with clear brilliant lack and with black paint in top and down.

    Hi

    This post will be longer than normal due to the breakthrough I've achieved. So I hope you enjoy.

    I come with advances these days. I stayed in the last support, because I well, took longer than it should...

    [​IMG]

    So I had to repeat it. It was a complicated piece by the shape and angles, the slightest mistake could break or burn. Patience was rewarded...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This piece is to support the aquaero

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next step, modify front glass. This is joint the box, and don't get front air, so I install a 7mm separators...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I had gained 1 cm thick for free air intake. However after testing still, fans were able to not take a lot of flow, so I drill rivets and to modify the front of the case by removing all the inner ribs with the dremel, then sanding the surface and finally a layer of paint.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After this we turn to the lighting, time, testing and wiring, the main problem. Leave well without being burdensome. We start by finishing the lighting side of the box logo

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I leave a video of the tests ...


    I leave the lighting to keep riding hard in the box. SSDs installed with spacers. The idea is to have the minimum wiring seen, already difficult by the large number of cables required Aquaero for accessories and sensors

    [​IMG]

    And the back after installing everything. I had never gotten such an organization in any of my previous projects, I am satifecho with my result.

    [​IMG]

    Well, after all this and a weekend muuuuuy intense, it has today arrived FILLING !!!

    [​IMG]

    The first firing of the RL, only the pump aquaero to test ...

    [​IMG]

    And after five minutes I had to empty, a board of a male-male adapter tenial very dry board and mashed and lost. So after changing it full again and there he is, on and purging air. Photo and video...

    [​IMG]


    If all goes well, i am just plug it in, turn on and configure the PC

    In a few days I'll put photos and a final video project.

    Regards!!!

    Hi!!!

    Well, this weekend to finish the pc but thought amused me with some improvements.

    First fabricate a cover for the motherboard to plug the rear connectors of the plate. First take measurements and draw in cardboard then cut it and present it on the plate.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Despues lo pase al aluminio, corte, lime y plegado...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After you pass the aluminum, cut, lime and folding ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And present on the motherboard...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Then I play the relevant painting session, not take pictures sorry, but mounted on the board you will see in the following photos.

    I made some changes in the RL, I returned to deposit Aquacomputer and I liked a lot more aesthetic that gave the set so manufactures aluminum support also remains hidden behind. You up out photos in the next update.

    [​IMG]

    After this happens wiring that was not enough, place without plugging in to power but all ordenadito, as God intended. It could be improved as wired but is too big and is another world.

    [​IMG]

    And finally the RGB LED strips lighting controlled by farbwerk and aquaero

    And this is all that gave the weekend.

    Next week I will have to make a small adjustment because me is impossible to fill the circuit, an air pocket is created and does not enter the liquid. Seran 10 minutes to make 2 holes.

    Regards!!!
