    I've got a dremel with some reinforced cut-off discs, but you're forgetting that I'd need to take everything out of the case so I don't get metal dust in everything. Either that, or try to cover everything up somehow. Regardless, I am really fucking lazy and it took me like a month or something to finally get around to finishing that little bracket.

    For the night owls of TPU, or for those just waking up, I am reserving this space for images of a TJ11, as soon as it finishes bleeding the loop;)

    Likely countdown is roughly one hour :D

    EDIT:
    Sorry for the un-edited photos. The rig in the images is what I usually shop em with. SO none the less, I still have some pretty good angles and shots to deliver, as promised!

    All the goods, prepped on the mobo tray:

    Gotta do a bit of leak testing.....dry as a bone BTW:

    And a step back to admire it all:

    Still bummed out I didn't luck into your old 800D. I saw you mention you were getting rid of it and searched around, but sadly it was gone. To a 3 poster:cry:

    That case sure is easy on the eyes. Too bad the price tag and that 8 pin aren't. :(

    Isn't too easy on the back, had to go up two stories with that thing:(
    Price tag is, well, expensive, can't argue that.
    The 8-pin tucks away much nicer, I just had the wiring there so the bulk of the cable would sit behind the tray. Of course the radiator covers it all when its all together in the case anyways:p


    @ Thrackan....there are no nudes, it's all dressed;)

    Ouch. I've had to do a single flight of stairs before carrying my rig, I wasn't too happy about it. How much does that thing weigh anyways?

    well first guess when I took it out of the box (empty) was 40-45 pounds. *goes to check specs for certainty*

    SilverStone listing shows 17.4kg/38.36 pounds.


    With all my stuff in it as you see it, it felt like I was lugging 65-70 pounds easy! Not too bad in itself, but the awkwardness of the size makes doorways and stairs a bit tougher;)

    I could give that a go, but that means I got to move it again, and that requires sleep first.

    yup they're a hefty beast just like my RV02 + all the gear I'd have to estimate around 25~28KG I could just imagine adding water and how much lighter it would be....

    Oh and sneeky it's looking damn fine :pimp:

    I used the RV02 for a while....built very similar. I do know this chassis is a ton more solid in feel and steel thickness....just switched the room around for the left handed case setup. Had a few boot issues, but she is back to stock after a CMOS clear and running tip top!

    I really need to get some sleep soon:S

    For the single I assume you are speaking of. The rear I/O plate offset is too deep to use a single fan to attach the rad to (without hitting it). So I took a fan I wasn't using, gutted it, and used the fan frame as a spacer to allow the rad not to hit the steel;)

    I really couldn't see any way around it, if I didn't use a fan I had on hand, I would have had to ordered essentially the same thing anyways.

    Edit: also by dropping the rad another 25mm+, it made the rad hang low enough to adorn it with the case badge;)

    ^^ Agreed, lip-smackingly sexy. It's hard to find a decent water rig that has a minimalist look.

    WAY BETTER than an 800D for sure granted at nearly twice the cost.
