    Bedankt Marco!


    [​IMG]


    First thing to do ... I thought ..
    Ordered the wrong size fan. : )

    [​IMG]


    Still want to see the effect.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Comes in handy with cases like these.

    [​IMG]


    Fans mounted.

    [​IMG]


    And found out the standard EK rad isn't going to fit in the top, had to use a thinner one, even that was close.

    [​IMG]


    Top fans and radiator mounted too.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And front.

    Next day the 140mm fan for PSU also arrived.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Re-drilled the holes cause the standard fan is 135mm.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    White Lamptron replaced with a green Bulgin.
    Heatshrink and sleeve to hide it inside.

    [​IMG]


    Test with UV/blue leds.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And hardware inside to see how it looks.

    [​IMG]


    Also started with a first setup for the loop.

    [​IMG]


    All still temporary.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Black instead of blue tape around the extender. (Will be out of sight)

    [​IMG]


    Next update more sawing and sanding.

    Already spotted some pics online from people polishing their waterblocks.
    Seemed like a great plan for this build too : )

    [​IMG]


    All I used for the polishing:
    P1500 P2000 P3000 and wax

    [​IMG]


    About 3-5 minutes with each for this result.

    [​IMG]


    So lets do the rest too : )

    [​IMG]


    Cpu block also done.

    [​IMG]


    But was missing something.

    [​IMG]


    So..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    That's better.

    [​IMG]


    Wanted to do it the easy way so kept the block and plexi in their place, just used a few pieces of tape to protect.

    Took a little longer cause of the size.

    [​IMG]


    Also replaced the old bolts for stainless steel ones, also polished those.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And the switch.

    [​IMG]


    Result ..

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I'm satisfied.

    [​IMG]


    And in the spotlight 'spotlight'.

    Small mod this time :)

    Because I'm using an EK MEM block for this build and since I'm going to use a Dominator Platinum kit tried to make something to keep the Platinum look.

    [​IMG]


    At the start I wanted a small hole and keep the text.

    [​IMG]


    But it disappeared after 5 seconds with P1000 .. it wasn't punched in that deep.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Time for an other approach.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Just a few hours of filings and sanding :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    And done.

    Glued it on a few points.

    [​IMG]


    I know it's a totally useless mod, specially since watercooling Ram isn't needed..
    Still I like the looks and doing it :)

    And another update.

    Had a day off at work ...... so back to work : )

    [​IMG]


    Finally an opportunity to work with E22 tubing

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    After one day of measuring, sawing and filing.

    [​IMG]


    And ... something I wanted to do a long time .. filling the loop : )

    [​IMG]

    First with clear cause of the leak testing.

    [​IMG]


    After that adding the Mayhems UV laser green.
    (Thought this was cool : P )

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    And a little video of the filling + adding UV laser green to the loop with the pump running.
    Must See! : P


    [​IMG]

    Also ordered some extra ledstrips.

    [​IMG]


    On to the next, maybe last update : )

    When I brought it upstairs something came in mind for the final shoot.
    Why not use the reflecting glass panel from the previous/future project :)
