Blocks arrived today from Dazmode. Not sure I like how the tubing looks though. Too tight I think.


EDIT: Redid the tubing.

Brandon, no man, I love how tight the tubing is, Super clean lines. I love it. Such a great job.
The monochrome, the simplicity. Amazing.

What do you have planned for the HDD bays? are you going make anything custom?

I couldn't figure out a good way to modify the stock HDD bays, and still have it look good and be secure. I think I'd rather leave it out then do it poorly. I don't need them though since I won't be using any HDD's. I have the one 64GB Crucial M4 as my boot drive, then my 80GB FusionIO ioXtreme for my important apps and games.

In a perfect world I'd like to have some sort of cover built to cover all of the remaining bays to make it look cleaner. However I am not much of a fabricator, so that will likely never happen.

Here are a few more pics. I added one more 45˚ to my loop. My goal is to have the rig operational by Saturday. All I have left to do is cut, crimp, & sleeve my PCIe cable, 1 SATA power, and 2 4-pin molex for the pumps.

find a local hobby store and looks for a sheet of styrene, easy to cut and you can paint it any colour, and will cost less than $20 bucks for it. thats what i used to cove up mine in my lian li case.

Are you going IceDragon+Mayhem dye for cooling fluid? I love the all black theme...I'm doing the same on my MM Pinnacle 24.

No dye. Just plain IDC fluid. I am in the process of bleeding it right now. I screwed up and have the inlet/outlets reversed on the videocard. Normally it doesn't matter which is which. However w/ the videocard being vertical it sure does.
