What are you going to use to power your Mobo if you've got the atx covered up?

That's amazing. Can't wait to see what the end result is going to look like :)

Hot damn that looks sweet!!!!!! :)

I can't speak for anybody else, but I really appreciate you keeping us updated on this project. I doubt many of us have your modding skills, but seeing stuff like this always gets the creative juices flowing.

Thanks again!

I decided to add HDD Activity Indicators to the 'RAID Box', 1 per drive. =)


I also added an LED that will just be on all the time to add a bit of internal p'zaz.



More soon

Wow nice work dude!

I do have a question though, have you left enough room under your top video card for the tubes? From post #224 it doesn't seem like there's quite enough space under your first video card!

I don't understand... Below is an earlier picture I took of the graphics cards installed...

I even photoshopped a third card into the mix, there' lots of room:



Here's the OLD tubing layout - before I added the reservoirs.



I've ordered a SLI kit for the GPU blocks anyway to clean up the loop.

Isn't it a waste to cut up such a nice case?

??? I am confused by this comment....are you saying he is wasting a good case by creating this one of a kind carbon fiber work of art...out of that old Lian Li case.....please explain because I think its safe to say that anything in this caliber of work and detail is far from wasteful.
