    The only thing that sucks about this build, is that mine is going to be so close to it. Good job man, it looks really nice, and I'm going to have to steal a few ideas off you, even if it will make my build look that much closer to yours (in particular the mesh on the drive bays is a nice touch that I think I'm going to use). I'm amazed at how clean you managed to make that wiring, it's giving me the most trouble out of anything so far (but then again, I'm wrestling with a RAID controller that has obscenely long SATA cables) and hope I can manage to get something that looks even half as nice as what you put together.

    As already discussed: Change the clamp that holds the reservoire and we are almost OR already there. All the best to Junkun13 too, that pointed me to the first version of this rig Go for Philippines V2

    You wonder that I check out your rig - or better say "almost one of the most beautiful computers"?

    I got an email by Ruben about it ...

    Just paint them and you should be there. Also please hide or exchange the cable-ties - cable tie heads are never beautiful. A dream would be to have black PCB graphic cards in it, but I do understand, that it is hard to open the loop again ... but who knows Just follow the motto: No-Compromise!

    If you have any questions and especially before you do the final shooting - PN me or ask Ruben for my email-address. You are more than ! I can't guarantee for anything but if you go to "no compromise" and the photos become pieces of art - what can I do?

    I just looked at the photos again: The two screws on the vertical mesh at the side towards the front really annoy and destroy the general quality look. It is also bent a little. Maybe you have a second mesh? Sorry *duck and hide*
    I know it's whining from my side on a high level - please forgive.

    i would like to own black pcb cards as well..but the only cards i know are the 8800gtx, 9800gtx and those overpriced 260 and 280gtx. which obviously i cannot afford anymore. lol! i will try to make a pcb cover out of lasercut acrylic with a bit of design if it will look ok. i will email you the final pics when im done altering those tiny bits you mention.

    i also just noticed, the mesh is kindly slightly bent. haha! anyway, thanks for the tips. ill be busy working it out again. hehe.

    the mesh was added to blend in more like on the front 5.25 cover and the ram cooler which are all perforated alum.

    they are not reference design and thus will render my iandh ramsinks useless. also i already have the 8800gts g92 which i think is the better card than the gt. 9800gtx or higher will be my only choice if i where to upgrade just to get a black pcb. sadly i couldnt afford it right now. ;-)

    Fantastic Mod, One of my all time favourites. Does the pump Mod increase the pumps efficiency like the new EK top? Your use of black Tygon has made me rethink my efforts. Well done friend.

    with regards to ease of use i think yes. because it's a lot easier to swap fittings with a threaded pump. with the original pump top you are limited to using only 1/2 and 7/16 id tubing at most

    knet370: I just purchased an A-77B. I think it looks decent in its stock configuration but what you have done is a work of art! The black powder coat really transforms the "bland" aluminum.

    Maybe you should send some of your pics to Lian Li and see what they think.

    At which point the only legal tender that they will accept would be gold.

    Although - cant be that expensive if they do it on mass. Would be hella sexy.

    some of their newly released cases already have anodized interiors although a bit more expensive.
