    If you made all the seals water/oil tight you could pump mineral oil in and out into a rad from those valves.

    :laugh::laugh::laugh:Now there is something I never thought of:laugh: I don't know about all of that though:laugh::laugh::laugh:

    None the less, taking the main block in tomorrow to the shop I work in, and getting parts of it cut to fit a motherboard tray. After the cutting is done, I will have to do some machining to get the sides of the cut cleaned up and strait. Should be able to do this in one of the end mills that I use at the shop.

    Going to of course take some pictures of the cutting and the machining LOL.

    Well the more I think about it the more I am figuring on doing liquid cooling solution for this. The way that I have it designed it would probably cool pretty good on air, however I think it would be much better under liquid:rockout:

    Actually your not Panther! I really like the on switch being in the accelerator:rockout::rockout::rockout:

    I know that this has not been updated for a few weeks, however I have just went through a move, and that has consumed the majority of my time.

    Hopefully I will be able to update this thread in the next couple of weeks with some more photos :D

    Okay for a quick update on this, I just ordered the motherboard and chip for this project:toast:

    I already have the ram, power supply, DVD burner, and the hard drive. I finally got the case and jugs out of storage late yesterday, and will be taking them to work Monday to do all the cutting, machining, and fabrication to begin the assembly. Stay tuned for more pictures that will be added to the original post and in the upcoming posts:toast:

    Again, thanks to all my faithful followers that have subbed this thread!!:respect::respect::respect:

    Well everyone, this has been seriously on the very back burner for a lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng time now!
    I just came up with a possible set of heads that are not usable for free! I will still have to buy the jug and head mounting kit, which is only about $60 so that isn't too bad.

    I have a mITX motherboard and chip coming in the next week. I actually have a great machine shop on board to do the machining to install the motherboard..............So, this build is starting up again..................I know, it's been forever! Over 4 years now!

    So, here we go again.
