    Happy New Year All!!!

    I managed to get one last day in at the shop working on "V" before the end of my holidays. Overall I'd say I'm pleased with the results but disappointed that I didn't get more done. It's surprising sometimes how much time ticks away while working on a particular thing, then when you add a few of those things together with a generous helping of design/planning time, and suddenly the day is gone. Of course the two steps forward-one step back aspect of this phase in the project doesn't help much, but I think I've got a handle on the situation now and there shouldn't (hopefully) be too much more of that.

    Now ... the progress.

    After many layout trials and much frustration I finally got the resevoir and the pump in their final locations. I decided to run a single pump for now as space limitations and visual appeal considerations won't allow for the second one. If there is need for it later when I watercool more than just the CPU and GPU I believe I have thought of a way to add the second pump, but I won't know for sure until the rest of the case is finished.

    Once I had finally settled on the single pump and found the permanent homes for it and the resevoir I made a false back plate to raise the resevoir off of the rear of the case. This allows me the space I need to route the case wiring out of sight. Then I made a shield to cover the majority of the cooling lines and the inlets of the resevoir, and a small extension to conceal the wiring as it exits the power supply.

    And of course ... some pics

    First, the pump and resevoir in their final locations ... the riser plate is already installed underneath the res., you can almost make it out in the pic.


    Then, a couple of shots with the shielding in place ... I'm quite pleased with the way this turned out, although there was some serious bits of frustration along the way there.







    And finally, one overview shot of the case interior as it stands right now ... it's getting there!



    That's it for now .. time for me to head to bed, back to work tomorrow

    Thanks once again for the great comments, those and suggestions are always most welcomed.

    P.S. Crimson: Although we DO have the capability to weld aluminum in my shop it's not something I've ever tried to do, apparently it takes quite a "knack" to do. What I welded there was stainless steel. (Hey I had to bring out the "special tools" at some point didn't I? Don't make me have to start using the lathe and the milling machine too, people will start to cry "FOUL !!" lol)

    Peace all !!

    Hey Fyreknight,

    It might be kinda cool if you could scribe that rant that V goes on after beating the crap out of the two fingermen,

    Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
    Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
    Although it's long as hell, it would look sweet as trim around the border somewhere since you have plenty of surface area, maybe as printed decals? Anyway, just a thought albeit a nutty one...

    You gotta be good to say that the way he did. He gets some good roles, but he deserves better ones.
