They look pretty nice if you paint em up. I painted my original silver but havent got around to do the second. Might try a black on them both to see if it looks cool. If you get a used one just dip it in a CLR and water bath and it cleans it like brand new. DangerDen also sells those shrouds that fit perfectly.

Here is a shot from many years ago when I used cases, looks cool to top mount these things. Just had to cut two holes to run the tubing.



After painting:

Nice job Frosty! I havent seen too many WC rigs in the 1200!

Mines still a work in progress, but it is up and running now, just some cosmetic changes to come...

Paul,

I have the same problem, where if I choose a quick reply into a thread and add pics, they won't show. Edit your post, remove and re-instate your pics. Should work.

Hm, yeah that worked. I fired off a message to Gav about it, because this is not the only issue with the Image Host.

That is the Scythe fan controller. It shows you the fan speed and also has 2 temperature sensors. I got one as a demo from Scythe, not sure on the pricing.

My fans are normally 1800RPM, which is a little too loud for me. I have them running at 1200RPM with the fan controller, that is why. The temp reading is attached to my RAM, because you cant use software to measure RAM temps.
