Got just a couple more jobs to do:

-Mod side panel window
-fill up loop
-cable manage and final wiring
-few finishing touches
 
WE ARE SO CLOSE 2 more day, hopefully get it done by friday.

 

 

I would think it would be wiser to fill the loop AFTER you do the wiring..! :P

 

 

The build looks good though, the chrome tubing is soo much better! ;) 

 

But why the big holes in the midplate? 

 

Are you going to remove the Phobya sticker on the rad? would look more clean without :)

This is so nice! Really cool, and really creative. I love the midplate, and the lighting. :)

What kind of fittings do you use for the pipes? Do you have to do anything at the end of the pipes to make them fit? Anyways, really nice build. :)

Could you add a picture with the front panel on so we can see that with the lights and stuff? This looks so amazing :o. I Hope that HDD is going to be held down better than one zip tie :P

you can't do the wiring before filling the loop otherwise the cpu and graphics card with power on when running the pump, the big holes allow me to put the pipe through without scraping all the chrome off them and thats not a phoyba sticker its painted onto the rad.

http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/index.php/cat/c696_10mm-silver.html  these are the fittings i used and i just debured the inside of the pipe and push them in and they lock in place.
