I now make my sleeved cables to fit the case. So the cables and case would come as one. I couldn't really sell the cable seperately.


Actually the plan is to fit a 2x200mm, 1x200mm, and a 2x120mm. That is pretty close to 10x120mm worth of frontal surface area. Frontal surface area being what is most important for water cooling radiators.
That will be crazy. I am waiting

100% done w/ the interior I do believe. Should be able to drop it off @ the powder coaters sometime this week. :D

Didn't make it to the powder coaters yet. Monday or Tuesday....

Slightly modified the SR1 to have curved fan mounts versus the straight. The reason why this was done will be shown soon. First we give them a good prime coat.





Fins were painted gloss black. The rest of the radiator will be painted matte black.






Felt like doing a bit of polishing while watching some TV this evening. So I took out the D5 for this build.

Thanks. Pretty easy to do while just sitting back and watching some TV. Just like older woman and knitting.

I finished off the rest of the pump (again) today. I sanded and polished the lip of the pump body. I painted the backside delrin piece of the pump matte black so it was a more even colour. Was also able to remove the paint off the impeller w/ some mineral spirits.

Had to reinstall the pump and radiator this morning to get a few more measurements.


Decided I didn't like the Koolance reservoir that I had previously. So I stole the glass XSPC Photon from my upcoming Black Pearl build.

Stolling from ourself...those that makes us criminals?

Seriously, the Photon looks pretty good there! This reservoir is really massive and in my personnal opinion, it need a big big case to look good. So in the A77 it's perfect!
