    Most people seem to dislike the circular design. I didn't love it at first, but it is growing on me. I just love the combination of the frosted tops with nickel, and the full nickel CPU block.

    Time for another small update. Making some serious progress on the internals now! In addition to the iphone control up front, I also wanted something to make the inside shrouding a bit more interesting... so I went with an Aquaero. This will be used for some fan control, flow senors, inline water temp readings, etc. I like their graphs.





    A few of the LED strips I'll be using around the case to give a little glow.


    I made a Rebel Alliance logo by hand which will likely be used on the side panel, and I may need to bust out a few more for placement among the build. A little time consuming, but worth it.


    The interior is just about ready to head in for paint. The acrylic will all be painted the same color as the exterior (a metallic gray). The side shroud with fan holes is removable via thumb screws if I should ever need to access the lower compartment which will house the pumps.


    Here you can see the placement of the Aquaero. The acrylic will be cut to fit it in perfectly and will be used for reading water temps, flow, and controlling some fans.


    Holes are in place for tubing pass through to the quad GPU setup. The acrylic is flush with the case.


    A sneaky view of the lower compartment that will house the PSU and pumps. The custom support brackets are made from 1" acrylic and also support the hidden hard drive mounting bracket behind the PSU.

    Thank you ^_^

    Just dropped off the parts for paint! Mixing a custom House of Kolor metallic gray for the interior and exterior, with airbrushed paneling design and detailing inspired by the wing panel of an Xwing. Can't wait to see it all painted!

    Appreciate the feedback. I'll have more updates coming soon. I was expecting a package from Performance PC's with some more fittings and such that I need to finish one of the loops, but somehow the order got messed up and isn't on the way yet... so we've hit a little snag. That, and figuring out the exact red to use for the coolant (which will then be matched for the red airbrushing and fan paint colors) is difficult...

    Brad spent time mixing up the custom House of Kolor red to match the liquid. This will be used for the fans and custom airbrushing around and inside the case. More paint pictures should be up tomorrow..
