I've started assembly.

First I wanted to exchange the cooler with the block.

Due to the very unusual mounting holes in the motherboard I had to adjust block. A little welding and we have such a thing:)

Then I unfolded and mounted power supply.

Then I've started pump assembly. I decided convert it a bit and attach a steel extension arm to minimize vibration.

As you can see there isn't so much space in the middle. And that's not all I have to fit in that chamber:)

Do not ask me too, who made a block and a pump. I just had them in my garbage.

Today one more small update - fans installed.

According to the rules I've choose to use Cooler Master fans :)

brain244.jpg

120 fans to both chambers.

And in the arm I've installed 80 fan. It needed just a little edit:) It will also cool the monitor.

This build is fantastic, one of the best steampunk I've seen.

I'm really surprised that it has only 2 votes so far:( Maybe because for some reason non of the polish email domains work in voting system :cry:

WP, onet, o2 - non of them work when someone votes. I hope you'll get more votes in next 2 weeks, cause its a great project!

Powodzenia!
