    There was another recent build here with nice idea that can be reused - to use similar plate for waterpaths to make tubing more neat. But otherwise i wouldn't go for such. Looks are superb & top notch, but there are lot of small electronic details on motherboard that might cool worse with all air-flow covered to them.

    Other than that bravo
    Thnx,
    The fittings gonna be exchange, the silver fittings are just to get everything in place

    Update: Midplate & Noise reduction

    Last days did some thinking about the hdd/ssd bays. used for this the original Haf bay, cut it in 2 pieces

    One for the ssd's and one for the hdd's

    Bay 1 for the ssd



    Bay 2 for the hdd
    Hmmm my new friend, Mr. Gorillatorch, helped me a lot lately with my build



    Again bay 2



    Gonna place them like this



    Bay 2 installed



    And bay 1 beneed the slimeline dvd drive.



    Have made a bay for the slimline dvd-rw



    fits perfectly



    just about this, need to do some little things to it, to make it look better, but for now.....



    Cut out a piece for the dvd



    Fits also



    The opening for the power cable to my gpu's



    For the noise reduction i used some isolation tape



    And grind a piece of my ceiling plate



    Vry nice piece i think



    This is all beeing covered with a midplate 5mm black acryl



    like this



    Replaced the original rivets for countersunk rivets.

    The original rivet






    countersunk rivets with tape for protection





    Whole back is finished for another idea

    For this update i wanna thank Mr. Sammie from cK-leds



    He has given my some very nice led strips



    Green silicone strips



    Green Smd strips



    Uv purple Smd strips



    And he's given my a nice suprice..... a nice RGB strip






    Not gonna use them in this mod, but maybe the next one to come


    also did some nice things with my pumps. Sawn 4 pieces of acryl.

    2 x uv green acryl 5mm



    And 2 x Black acryl 5mm



    Need to polish them



    Sawn the green acryl one more time with 4 feet instead of 2





    black acryl under the pump



    my 2 pumps ready to go





    Looks nice i think on my black midplate. and placed a single led in it



    Placed in the Haf with the led



    And some pics in the dark





    Thats it for today

    Grtzzz.

    Another thing I find funny is AMD/Intel would snipe any of our Moms on a grocery run if it meant good quarterly results, and you are forever whining about what feser did?

    Update

    I've frosted the uotside from the acryl, and put some led strips around the motherboard



    Placed the cover, still need to get the strips right



    But it's a nice effect already



    Have some disappointment about the solid tubes

    "Old" Tube



    "new" Tube



    doesnt fit anymore in the Bitspower fittings, so need to change plans. So i put the new solid tube in the Tygon tube



    Have tested it first, and looked really nice

    So did some sawning and fitting, and here,s the result



    Everything almost straight



    Have to exchange some silver for black fittings



    Lights out please.......nice, but need to buy some extenders for a straight line



    But the most lines are straight



    Total shot



    Pump 1 plugged in, only pump 2 now



    Reservoirs also nice with the green light



    Next step, buying BP black fittings and the acid green fluid



    So did some shopping by Highflow.nl
    Black and silver again for a new idea
    And i bought 6 BP zilveren L-Rotery,s second hand for a really good price



    For the link between the cpu and the motherboard i used silver fittings andextenders, this looks really good woth the nickel blocks from the gpu



    still need to put a small link between the cpu and the NB



    Did some cable managment, looks messy, but first things first



    The inside is better looking



    Mdpc sleeving always nice



    And the cpu power, 4 x 4 blocks



    a good friend have helped me with my slotloader dvd-rw
    He was really fast with putting this together again......... respect



    2 wires soldered on it, and tested it





    looks really nice, i think



    My reset button is now the eject button for the slotloader on the aquaero

    Mr. wwwicked thanks a lot, i owe you one

    Some stuff from my favorite shop HighFlow Computer Cooling Shop - Uw shop voor PC waterkoeling, luchtkoeling, modding, behuizingen en gaming!

    I,ve seen this fluid by the L3p desk, what looks really good


    Feser One Cooling Fluid - UV ACID GREEN

    Black extenders, have bought a lot of these


    Bitspower G1/4 Matt Black IG1/4 Extender BP-MBWTP-C40

    A rally nice rotery


    Bitspower G1/4 Matt Black Dual Rotary 90 Degree IG1/4 Adapter BP-MB90R2

    And more rotery's


    Bitspower Matt Black fittings

    And some shiny silverware


    Bitspower Silver Shiny Fittings

    I had to extend my Aquaero from the dispaly.



    Power on, and works fine



    And placed all the new fittings



    straight behind the powercables



    New black rotery's on the EK bridge



    And the pumps connected



    1 tube underneed the radiator bay





    The only thing now is to connect everything togheter and do some more wiring



    But have space enough for this.



    I hope to put the acid green fluid this weekend in, and show you some pics of this

    Grtzzz.

    Update: filled it up and cables

    Did al the wirring voor the aquaero
    And some updates for the firmware and software for the aquaero

    The 140mm fan works fine.



    The other fans also



    filling loop 1. No problems





    Tubes on top



    straight to the pump





    The fan is really coming out nice with the uv light





    Because there is a solid tube inside the Tygon tube, there's a lot of air inside





    Uv strips are really nice , and a good effect



    Uv acryl is very nice also





    and filled loop 2



    Beautiful pomps i think



    Looks good with the green acryl under need the ppumps



    And a total shot



    Grtzzz.

    I love how you covered the mobo! It ties the whole case together and gives it a nice flow. I'm not to thrilled with the motherboard color in my build so I think I might use that same idea. Amazing build so far! Subbd*

    Stunning build, Kier! One question for you though. Do you know where one could source the glowpads that you used in your build?

    Update:

    Hi there, like promised pics by daylight







    Was a lot of pushing and pulling







    For the airflow behind the acryl and the motherboard i have placed some nice small fans
    witch blow air up



    They blow air against a small metal stripe, and bend the flow down, behind the acryl



    Works perfectly



    And i have placed some green strips for the frontbay



    everything placed in order



    Have sawn small pieces of green 3mm acryl



    think it looks nice with the black top



    But need to frost it some more







    Cover the behind also



    Gonna think it over some more

    And last but not least, the side panel



    Sawning time



    Used a 5mm green acryl again



    Need to be shappen some more



    And placed it back



    Looks fine with uv led strips



    But needs to be placed it in the right direction



    After this i did some thinking, and think it's a shame that the gpu's are not fully in sight
    So did some sawning again.



    Better like this, i think. The idea is to use the green acryl piece i've made, to place it in the other side panel

    so, to be continued

    Greetings

    Looking awesome! I think it was a wise choice to nix the green piece over the GPUs. Looks much cleaner without it there.

    Update

    Hello everybody,
    the other side of the case,(other sidepanel) did some sawning and grinding



    It took some time, but almost finished



    Have used the green acryl from the other side, never throw something away

    Recycling again



    Need to shappen the slots some more



    And did some more small things. Maked the cover for the display again, but now with aluminium
    Better then the 3mm black acryl



    some more grinding and sawning



    put the grey display in



    only paint the cover again and it's finished



    Have used the same black aluminium for the sli cover



    Mdpc bolts in it



    nothing more for this cover, think it's finished like this



    Also did the final placing for the led strips
    Placed with the uv strips a green stripe, just to remove the purple color

    Looks nice on the mesh panel





    Lines on the motherboard cover are very good visible now





    Need to shappen the cables some more, but almost there




    Thats it folks, see you next time

    grtzz.

    What if you painted the Dominator fins in alternating between no paint and neon green?
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.
