Looks good. Nice and clean.:thumb:

Amazing job, :) you should be proud that's extremely impressive

Pabz0r545 October 21, 2012 06:26 PM

Looks great. I can't really say I would have done anything different except maybe went with corsair SP120's just for looks. The one thing I like the most is how you modded the HDD trays to stay there but still house the radiator! :D

P.S. Sexy waterblock

Thanks for the feedback! Feels good when you pull off a good job.

Outstanding design and craftsmanship nice to see someone doing his best work and thanks for sharing. That's pretty impressive it being your first mod. Do you have access to a machine shop?

Nope... Just a garage with all the tools ;) I did all the cuts with a Dremel zip disc and sanding bits.
