Good work by the way :)

Honestly, when I saw the first pic of the case you were going to start with... eeeeew

But you aren't even done and it looks seriously sweet!

Anyone can go out and buy a mountain mods case if they want, but not everyone has the drive to do something like this. The coolest things are always one offs that you make yourself.

Excellent work!

Here's some other miscellaneous things that are going into the case:

The fan mounts... since the original couldn't hold 3 fans in a row... since there was no bracket for that, which made my case look super funky. :




As you guys can see, I tried using mighty putty to bond the cross members together... that failed miserably LOL, but that might be because I was so impatient with the curing process...

Oh this bad boy is going into the case. So the whole story went like this... I got an i7 with two 3870s in crossfire... then I downgraded and sold one of the cards... then in the middle of my modding, I sold my remaining 3870... so now I'm replacing it with this beast. (got the 768 MB because I can't afford the 1 GB =( ). Presenting the EVGA GTX 460:



Next update will be coming shortly (maybe in an hour) with my water cooling setup inside.

Thanks jcmaz!

I would buy something like that but I think I got the problem solved with my post after yours. But I totally didn't know that those existed. LOL. Also about that side panel fan, I would buy something like that, however I'm planning on cutting out a window on the side panel when I have time after... but that's for my second project when I actually have a garage to work in =P

Which reminds me, I shouldn't call this build The Reform 2.0, it should be 1.0 LOL

The final water loop setup.

This picture is quite self explanatory... lol:



How does the setup look like you ask?:



And long and behold... after a long time of leak testing... walahhhh!:

THE FANS!






Enjoy the gallery!





So what do you guys think of the final product? of course there are a few mistakes and a few spots that I left out, but judging by the amount of time I have on my hands, I think I'll have to enjoy what I have now and just mod the case later in life.

tell me what you guys think, and I'll reply insta fast ! =D

Thanks for looking!

Have you thought about sealing the 2 holes on the top?
