A word to the wise.
 
Do not attempt to put 4 hard drives, 2 videocards, 1 sound card, watercooling and a full ATX motherboard into an HTPC case. You'll be swearing up and down.

Wiring looks a mess, but in all seriousness it is impossible to fix. I am a cable management nut and I just can't do it.

The tubing is sleeved, right? Do I see a short stub, which is not connected? Between the DVD player and the HDDs.

Yes, that would be my tee fitting in order to fill as there was no way I could fit a res in there. I tried for a good hour to route tubes to the res, but i just couldn't do it. Yes the tubing is sleeved.

Are you trying to put Ted Turner out of business?


:haha: :haha: :haha:

Seriously, I would like to know what you're trying to accomplish. Still working on talking the wife in to letting me build one for us.

I wanted a full desktop replacement. I don't use my PC for anything but gaming and a PVR. So I decided that having a huge desktop in my living room is wrecking my fung shui :haha: . So I wanted to put my whole tower inside of a HTPC that can sit on my entertainment stand instead.

Wouldn't it have been easier to fit all that into something like a Silverstone CW-01? Might have even gotten a small reservoir in that one.
