The Cougar Xenomorph

Hi all, I've decided to redo my current rig which some of u may have seen here:https://forums.overclockers.com.au/threads/rog-snowcone.1241562/. Rebuilding now as a Alien vs predator inspired build, new features over last one include: Custom paintwork, Custom new panels, case modification, dual reservoirs and few other things. Will post photos I have already and please do let me know what u think as it progresses ?

Note: the shots of the paintwork is first coat, finish is much better now and the cut outs on top panel have been extended from their original size

Instead of a poll I'm getting a general consensus lol, for the water cooling loop I can go green colour with dual green helix reservoirs or do a yellowish colouring with facehuggers in the reservoirs in place of the helixs. Option 1 is prob easier but option 2 would be closer to movie in colour match, which one the community recommend?

Okie dokie got pics of dual pump sleeving using some split sleeving from bunnings, I like the ribbed tubing as i think it has a alienish look to it more then black cables. Also reservoirs are mounted

New update, got front plate and custom window on, also started on the cooling loop. Can honestly say doing the coils and threading the tubing thru the venting takes what feels like forever lol

With an avatar like that, I'm not surprised that's your only true comment contribution to this entire website. Yes I know where it's from.

Cougar makes some decent cases. I have an MX-330 myself. But cougar needs to take that abhorrent trash off the market immediately. That's not a case. It's a parts stand.
