Default [OnGoing Project] Hacked 690 ** updated **

Due to costs.. time.. and every other thing out there this has taken longer than expected but when its done I gurantee it'll be one of a kind hehehe.

Heres a sample right now.. bottom half will be holding all my water cooling parts.

In case anyone is wondering... its just shy of 29" tall :P

How are you going to watch the fish with all that grill in the way?

It will be.. I'm finishing off and boxing in the bottom half before I paint it.

Once its framed in its getting low expansion foamed between the plates for sound deading etc.

If you even had a inkling of the cost gone into this thing so far I'm sure you'd be

Cant wait to see the finished product!
Aside from the not so nice silver/black contrast right now, it looks pretty cool.
What watercooling gear are you planning on putting down there?

Right now I have:

1 x custom reservoir
1 x PA120.2 (IF it ever gets shipped to Langley)
1 x MCP355 with Petra Top for pump
1 x D-Tek V2 CPU Block

I may end up going with the D-Tek Vga block too but not 100% yet..

Have you considered going to a 120.3 or dual 120.2s down there? I think it would look pretty awesome with dual rads...

Possibly but the availability of the PA120.3 is pretty scarce and for a single cpu and gpu ... 2 dual rads would be major overkill hahaha.
