Default Lenovo K320 Ice Series Lets Make Ice!!!!

Hello all, This mod came from a concept that I submitted For the lenovo Mod Contest. What is your idea of fun USA

My design was selected as one of the finalist and Lenovo sent me Thier Ideacentre K320 PC to mod to my heart desires. The winner of the contest gets to showcase thier mod at the 2011 CES at Las Vegas.

I had a few ideas in my head, and I sent them a rough design of a PC encased in ice for my initial entry in the contest.

K320 Specs
CORE_I7_870_2.93
8G_DDR3_1333
ATI_RADEON_HD5970_PCIE_2G
1TB_7200RPM_SATA2
Blu-ray Disc combo
The main transformation of this Mod is to replicate the Lenovo K320 chassis into a Liquid acyclic shell to give it the appearance that the K320 was encased in ice.

Features:
Custom mold made from the original chassis to create the Acyclic Ice replica
Feature as many of the original details from the original chassis, keeping the screw less system as well as the easing to use hard drive enclosures.
Adding special lighting through out the system to show the performance modes of the fans all throughout the case. Red, Blue, Green
Adding custom water cooling and reservoir to keep all the components running at optimal overclock while keeping the system cool.
ATI Eyefinity System with 3 28 " Monitors.
