Those ram fan's have such a nice clean finished look to them, I've been meaning to pick one up for months now. Sort of like popping the hood of a BMW or Mercedes, all you see is what they want you to see, a clean finished look.

The transparent colorless water hose I think looks great, not so distracting as glowy green etc.

Great cable management, we all know how fussy that can be.

Add to that the nice chrome nickle plating on the water blocks, and the thing looks like it belongs in the Space Station!

Superb!

My System Specs

Default

Having had 4 different motherboards in and out of my case over the last 3 months made an absolute mess of my wiring. Finally took the time today to do the full thing....

Closeup of the WC & wiring.... not the prettiest wiring job, but it keeps the airflow fairly clean. :)

These older Lian-Li cased aren't the biggest in the world, but I love the open space on the side for routing spare wiring to.

Hid a bit of wiring in the front bays, but again I'm only really concerned with airflow so it looks like a good enough place for me.... :)

The full deal

Some shots of what i currently am working on.

Spray painted the front plates of my Zalman fan controllers a glossy black and changed the 2 red leds for blues ones using a solder iron.





And am re-building my loop with some new goodies.







Loop consist of

EK Reservoir 150 - MCP355 with Petra's top - EK 8800GTX FC WB - Thermochill PA120.3 - FuZion - MCW30 - Back to EK 150 Reservoir.

PS:The piece of tubing on top of it is just for bleeding issues. Once the loop is bleeded, i'll remove it.

I'll be using yellow dyes for that loop :) I think the blue lights of the fan and yellow coolant would look great wouldn't ?

Those MountainMod cases are simply cavernous! What a pleasure it must be to work in there!

Yellow + blue = green. No idea if it will mix that exact effect, but surely they will compliment each other.

Looking forward to seeing more as you progress!

I chose D-Tek UV purple for my H20. I kinda thought the yellow would look like pee in the loop but I hope your rig proves me wrong :).

That case looks too sweet

Hell yeah!

Tint is green in the lines, but since it is a reaction of yellow with the blue lights, it isn't a solid green throughout. Looks good to me!

Yup :) Looks a lil green. Looks better than the first yellow banana it showed a few days ago without any other light in case except the UVs.

Thanks!

I will be adding pictures of my upcoming build as soon as it is complete. For now this is my current system, Components listed in signature.











I know, I know; I need some cable management, but soon enough I am moving to an entirely new case, with newer components and hopefully much better cable management.
