That's very generous sir ! , Thank you !

I actually have the rig that's going into it.It's an Intel e6600 on an Asus p5k-se......

Mebbie once I destroy the first rig ? hehe we'll talk when testing starts.



----------

I spent about 5 hours bending copper today.What a pain....literally.....My knees will bruise forsure after that.......all manual bending.....knees , feet and hands.

Here's the last shot everyone saw of the two drains ;



Here's the next shot.

2 hours of bending later.Bottom drain 90% bent....



------

3 more hours , top drain bent to pair , or at least close......



-----

Couple more hours of bending and the drains are done.They are designed to empty into the keg opposite the pump mount , via 90's......

----

I'll be resuming tank sealing this week too.....

I would have never thought that case assembly would be a physical thing... ROFL

This 3/4" copper is hard to bend.....and it's type 'K' rather than the type 'L' I thought it was......thick stuff.....

What Wall86 said. If you need any parts to further this build, let us know man! We've all got a few things here and there that we'd be happy to throw your way to put in this beauty.

hehe

weee update time.

I've done a little more bending on the I/o plumbing nothing photo worthy yet.

-------

I've purchased an aquarium pump to provide air circulation during the final tank sealing process....I will be doing some werk on this over Christmas.

-----

I have my lighting ..., ( not confirmed by testing) .I decided to get a different LED emitter based on the stock situation at luxeon.

I've upgraded to Luxeon III emitters : Luxeon III Emitter LED - Cyan Lambertian, 64 lm @ 700mA [LXHL-PE09]

It's also a different radiation profile ( these are 'Lambertian' , the original ones I wanted were 'Batwing' )......It's ok tho.....these ones should be nice bright cyan spotlights :



I may or may not test them tonight.I'm playing rainbow6 vegas 2.

Hehe...

If that's not 'icy blue' I don't know what is.



---------

Sure.That emitter runs straight offa the 3.3 v line of a PSU.It's probably running about ~800 mA.....

Here's the spec sheet for these emitters......there will be 3 of em on the 'tank.
