    Who doesn't know them, the Cooler Master CSX series. The beautiful paintbrushed Coolermaster Stackers 830
    I've always wanted to mod this case. Luckily I've made a great deal to with Cooler Master
    The only condition was that I wouldn't do anything to the outside. Hmmm ok ;)

    So a build entirely focused on the inside.

    The Cooler Master Stacker 830 CSX Blue Flame:

    On top of the fans there will be a piece of bended mesh.

    After some brainstorming and trying, I've cut and bend some aluminum strips and cut an old 150mm reservoir (round 60mm) into 3 equal pieces. It was very old and had some cracks so no problem ;)
    Placed reservoir holders on the aluminum strips and slide 3 older versions 150mm (round 50mm) reservoirs in it.
    Connected them using EK adapters + C47 multi links and crystal links

    [​IMG]

    Placed the GPU and CPU block also connected them with EK adapters and Multi Links
