Here is one long overdue update.. bodywork is taking much longer than i anticipated 

 

I ended up saving me the trouble with doors that open like this.. so the original idea --- to the water

Made my life allot easier when it came to cooling :D fans can now be securely mounted to the side pannel XD

Also, now everything seems to fit perfectly >.>

And some finishing bodywork, tiny air bubbles gave me allot of problems after sanding...

In the end it was worth it... Just perfect :D

Also, one more idea that took me, Idiot, almost entire day and it was complete bust!

Also, i figured that if i paint over the dry body kit, it will give it a bit of strength so i ended up doing that and it made my life easier, I paint it when i am done, and than, when i am back from work tomorrow its nice and solid, doing this saved me from allot of scratches :D

The back fan mounted ( the one that cools the back of the socket ), i must add that when i did measurements for the cuts, i wanted to make it octagonal, i kind of dig the lines.. i think i will pinstripe them on it... Also the fan is mounted to the plate, that is than mounted to the case...

Checking if the cables fit the hole i made, it will be awesome when i put the sleeved cables there with cable combs there :D

There, I hope you guys like the progress i made, i will take liberty to say that it the case as a case should be done in a week, and the water cooling components and components should be fixed inside few weeks after that total...

Been a while since i posted, and loads of things happened since than :) 

 

Enjoy the slideshow XD 

 

Top part still needs some minor adjustments, it now opens quite nicely with some support from suspensions :)

Bare in mind that the foil didnt set as it should have, and i will re-do it, the glue needs to be heated and i didnt have good dust free chamber, i redid it and the finished pictures will be out soon, only thing left for me to do now is fill it with components :), loads of little details finished as well, this is just a preview! Finished pics will come out when i have it all working!

So i have been doing what seems to be the biggest problem... how to make roof and still look sharp :)

i think this will be ok, and not make the roof stand off too much, the roof consists out of board and a U profile, the sides will go on the inside of a U profile, and also it will house a led strip that will illuminate interior, now, should i put yellow or red that is still something to decide.

This is another problem i have had. The waterblock came w/o a backplate, and i love backplates, keeps the board from bending and gives it stiffness, so i drilled the holes in my existing backplate to widen the screw holes that were there so the screws for my waterblock could go trough. it works, now i will need to reinstall it :)

till the next time, feel free to comment, good/bad, its all cool :)

Cool build! The copper tubing is just one of the small details that fit perfectly in this build!

Are you thinking of making the front work?

 

Keep up the good work :)

Dry fitting the pipes to the current look, there will be another pipe that will go on the other side of the 24 pin that will go from GPU to res, but will go under than it will come back up, to res :)

So, i bet this is the thing you didnt expect to see :) 

I switched to below tubing to soft tubing in order to have a little more flexibility and room for working, also i made it so that the top part is able to tip over so i can clean, manage cables, etc etc.. This is the last big change in the overall mod and it will go under water tomorrow after some details and immense cleaning, dusting, alcohol bath and all :) 

 

Here are some pictures, i really hope you will enjoy them :)
