    since we are picking on CS I have a couple of ideas...;)

    Remove the hose that goes from the pump to the bottom of the res and attach the res directly to the pump with something like this (will eliminate 1 complete hose)
    http://www.dangerden.com/store/male-to-male-g-1-4-bspp-nipple.html

    That way the hose that goes from the CPU will be straight to the res, than make the lower CPU hose follow the top hose and right before the res curve it 90 deg and down the side of the res.

    I really like the switch box, what did you use to glue the plastic?

    Link me to 3/8 tubing... I was looking for that, but couldn't find a thing.. lol

    I don't know how I feel on having it hang there upside down... The EK-D5 Xtop V. 2 only has that one In port... I could throw something to hold it, but don't know quite what to use to do so...


    Used Aquarium style clear glue. RM did the box & Switches. He needs something to do during the day! :D j/k

    hey CS! Mind if I ask, where did you get the idea for the switch box? I would like to do something like that!

    and another thing....since most of your cabling goes through the side of the rad, why not build a "cable" box! like a rectangle box to hide yoour cables in! it would be cool....

    My niece came over one day and wanted to play on the computer. When I had the cosmos. So I allowed her and she had fun.. Well, she then started looking at the case and thought it was cool to restart the computer.. lol.. so i did that for whenever she came over. It's ontop of my Subwoofer box, so it's not like she would see it if she came over..

    I'll be making a project log for when I do the new box. Be up in the coming weeks

    :toast:


    I could do that. Well, I don't really need anything to do so. I do still have the PVC pipe that I was going to use to hide the cables when the rad was going tobe ontop..

    Link me to your monster wheels and I think I just may! lol... I was going to order come coster wheels from Mountain Mods since they're about 60% cheaper then anywhere else, but it was me wanting to do a all in one order... I'm still not sure if I even want to put in Frozen.Q's T-Virus res in this system.. I do, but then I won't want to do a window etching because I feel that it would take away from the eye candy... But, Darthbevis (if I'm spelling it right)has done both and they didn't turn out bad on it. I mean, this is a "Mech" style build... So the T-Virus is the "CORE" :laugh:

    SK, thanks for the kind words. Means alot from you :respect:

    Turn the pump 90deg to the left so the ports face up. (the res still is in the same posistion just lower.

    Next time when gluing plastic use this

    Yeah, all I can find is Plain black tubing.. I can set up lighting to make it flashy, but I'll have to work on it..

    Wouldn't I still need a bracket system for it to hold? I sorta get what your going at. I just need to visualize it a bit more without being at work... lol

    Will that work on Plexiglas? That's what the box is made of.

    its excellent for Plastic, acrylic, Plexiglas etc (those are all the same stuff with different trade names.)

    I use this (its the absolutely best thing) but its thin as water and you need near perfect seams.
    http://www.tapplastics.com/shop/product.php?pid=131&

    The Weld-On #16 is thicker and easier to use.

    My thought with attaching the res to the pump is eliminating the un needed hose (to me the less hoses the less mess and chance for leaks)

    Yeah, I can see what your talking about with it being less tubing. I'll have a sleep on it for a few days and we'll see what goes on.

    Thanks MK

    MY GOD that's crazy... You'd think they would mass produce something stable! I mean, shit.. it's only 5 bucks more for the GOOD stuff.

    Once the bank account gets filled I should be throwing the sell in for them.. lol.. TONS better then the acrylic stuff that doesn't even line up right...
