OK... small update. I have currently have an ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 motherboard coming to me and I have an AMD Opteron 165 on order. So this means the box is going to have a mean machine under the hood.

I decided to add some curves and some shape to the open areas. A lot more work to go on it, but you can see the shape coming slowly.

And by the way you CAN paint the rad without any issue in regards to heat loss. Just don't cake it on.

I use to work in a rad repair shop and we use to repaint the rads. You can paint them just do one or tow light coats, enough to cover the area. I personally like a matte black. Just use a high heat paint like an engine paint.

Thanks
Yea, it was making me think twice for some time. Most likely it will get painted.

I have my New(by new I mean used) motherboard on the way. The ASRock 939Dual-SATA2. bought it off a fellow canuck "Soccerdood". Kind enough to give me a killer deal.
I Just ordered my new Processor to "AMD Opteron 165"
At the moment i'm debating on Fan Controllers. Price is a factor. currently it's the Sunbeam Chromatic Windmill. if you have a better suggestion, well you better hurry.

Oh, and I've decided not to use the chicken wire. I think it's BUTT ugly. I'll be experimenting with it soon enough.

UPDATE!!!

Test fit for the fans behind the heater core



all four installed.



This is going to be the front plate.


Molding around the drives. I need this to make it fit nicely. the diamond plate is not to friendly to flat fits.



and finally some more work with the plaster of paris
