    Thank you L3p for posting all of your build, I am very impressed with it. I just spent the last 2.5 hours reading all that was posted. You have given me a lot of ideas for doing up something close to this. Hope you have no issue with me using this idea for something a little less built into the wall.

    One big question I have for you. How loud is the radiator you have under your house? I'm thinking I won't have the option of doing that.

    Thanks Regil :)

    No issues at all, would love to see some pics when it's finished!

    Here you can see/hear how loud the rad is :

    I do think with the fans on 5V or 7V will be very silent and still cool down the water enough.

    One other thing I didn't fully understand, how is having two pumps beneficial for you. Mind you I don't know how those pumps are built but I wouldn't think having two inline would not do anything for you unless one is pushing and the other is "pulling".

    That idea just came from playing with the pumps.
    Both pumps only push the water, one is helping the other.
    This way i could use both pumps at speed setting 2 to get the flow i wanted.
    This all was to make it as silent as possible.
    For example, with a loop like this one pump on speedsetting 5 wouldn't be enough.
    But 2 pumps on setting 2 or 3 pumps on setting 1 do have enough flow.

    Awesome Build

    Must say this is a incredible build, I almost can't believe it's possible!!!!!!! So you just bend the aluminium plate? How did you get a so nice bend then? And the height is just 15 cm? And I didn't understand the cable managment, did you take plate for the motherboard and just made screws to lift it som cm?

    Lot's of questions, but, it was pretty interesting, read the whole shit and gonna do it again to the weekend!

    Keep on building!
