    3mm Alum Diamond plate

    Got this from some metal production warehouse at the back of the shop.Intentionally went there to look for steel and aluminum stuff and found these on a Aluminum Recycle Bin.It was laying on top of all the other scrap Aluminums as if it is waiting for me,its size when i took it was like more or less 46x15".
    I plasma cut'd it myself to match the Freezone's original faceplate size at my uncle's shop and powder coated the plate myself,the reason i get to do this all by myself is cuz the shop is too busy and i went there @ working hours.

    The Badge
    This caught my Eye in a Belt buckle boutique in the mall.

    My cousin used a Angle Grinder with a cutting disc outfitted to cut off the Buckle locks @ the Back

    Applied 3m back2back adhesives (the one that MNPCtech uses to apply Plexiglass window sidepanels) on these layers

    First, i have to ask one thing.. What is the top for the pump? I have a EK D5 X-top and I can't have my cover on mine... lol

    I will say that it's shaping to be a nice Raven. Makes me think twice about even turning my back on the baby..

    What was the reason you went away from the NZXT front pannel? wasn't enough amps/wattage for the fans/set up?

    Now i can see why it took so long..

    :toast:

    and welcome to TPU.

    How you feel about modding wires? you could redo the wiring and sleeving of the fans in the back of the case (on the rad) to one single fan header. Or something like this and just sleeve it. The site, Performance PC's will ship most places, and even if you ask, they'll mod and sleeve it for ya. Most products they sell are all ready done up. Pretty good work from them. IMHO

    Thanks for showing the pump. I have the Ver. 2 top.. So it sinks in around the pump... I need to find a use for it or sell it.

    Great stuff all round, just one more thing.. For the pump, why the Extender like that? Just wondering.

    Thank you Brod

    yes im working on WC-ing the GPU's now the Looping pics shown is for the Quad 295s,yea man im really having a hard time figuring out how to loop this case i need a Pro to help me out wit this-
    Started cutting out 2 holes @ the Top o the case.The Decepticon Badge is 12ga. Steel material i think.Bought it off a Belt Boutique shop in a mall.Try hitting a Belt Buckle Boutique and get confused what to get,like i did,First choice i was like im gonna get a nice Hello Hello Kitty Face and Place it on my Freezones Plate as badge cuz ma daughter like HHK so much.

    Hi there hope this helps
    Camera
    Nikon D300


    First of all thanx,
    -We have the same pump top will get the BP pump top for the 2nd loop
    -Thanx for comment,Get Raven but DO NOT get the Raven 2 bbqsauce @ that case.
    -NZXT,haha i have no more D bay room-Cuz im getting sci-Fi champ,oh and the pic of the "no NZXT D bay" is just a test mount,tried cramping up the D bays so that i can check the gaps bet. the tubes n fittings of the pump n Res.I have my eye on that Xi-Fi Champ,and prolly add it with the EK bay+DVD Dr.+and NZXT Fan ctrl.
    -dont get bored man,cuz this WILL take REALLY loooong.

    Yeah, I'd have to get rid of the NZXT too if I was going that route. Sound is the best thing in life!

    Won't get bored... Just look at my log.. I've took so long because of work that it's not even funny.. Not as much as you, yet.

    Yea PPCS is the best thats where i bought my WC paraphernalia's,yea man the sleeving option @ PPCS is Pro Status Definitely "so choice" shop,I buy in bulk when it comes to PPCS cuz of the..what u call that? coast to cost surcharge?
    And for the system Hardwares like Mob-GPU-etc,i go for NCIX since im from canada only takes 2-3 business days to get my purchase.

    About the pump i took that EK top cuz of its Dimensions.Perfectly fits (shown in Picture) the set up i planned.

    Yeah, your right on the calling... NCIX is a great place. I check that often, but since we have Newegg in the us, I go there for shipping. Only bad part on my half with PPC is that it's across the state from me, so i get tax apon shipping. But, I love the quality of their stuff, and ordered to much from them.. lol.. Sidewinder and Petra are great since if it's out, they can get it asap for ya... I haven't asked PPC for anything like that yet.. Might have to for my build after doing temp testing.

    BTw, can't wait to see temps for the set up also. Should be pretty good.


    Also, what camera are you using to take the beautiful pictures? lady wants to know.. :roll:
