Looks better now that you've added more pics of your setup.

Just one further question, did you remove the wick from the tubes before attaching the additional copper tubing?

Yeah, if he had a Zalman VF900, he could do something similar, although there are only 2 pipes to work with.

Yes, I still would be able to mod VF900 using the same thing that I did do my CNP7500.

Join one side with copper tubing and the other side I need to cut enough copper fin so it will have enough room for the tubing.

Maybe that could be an idea for your next project.

I am going put some green LED on my side window,drill 6 holes in the front cover and on the base. I am also changin my LED fan into either Yellow,white or green LED. Some cable management with the circular tubing thingy (dont know how to say it).

All will be done after my goods are carried to Australia when my relative comes for holiday. ^_^

Oh yea I also replace my water tank with a tank that has TEC placed onto it. Its now nice and quiet.

To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Intel C2D E6600@3.42GHz /ADATA@2GB_360MHz /ASUS Commando / Home made WC with ZALMAN CNP9500 /Sparkle 7950GT@512mb

Mods:
Home+hand made watercooler with ZALMAN CNP9500 /2x80mm LED fan /RAM fan(Pentium 3 HSF) /a bit cable mangement

I've cut out the heat pipe from CNP9500 near the base of the copper base. Rebending and reshpaing 6 copper pipes into curves to match the orginal size and shape of CNP9500. Aluminuim car oil radiator 400x185x20(LxWxH). Industry used high presure air compressor tube. LG fridge ice box containor used for water tank(4Litres). CAR raditator coolant and lots of soldiering, its pretty hard to soldier the copper pipes together because one is soldier but then the others melts. I used a water feature pump which produces 1000LPM@20w useing 240V
Dude you rock!!
This is a mod I was planning myself I am unimpressed by the cooling radiator on my liquid cooling system and was going to add a similar mod for a second radiator.
