    Hello modders, for today I bring a month update of hobby.
    The pieces finally met the White right (that glossy white),
    The feet are covered in gold leaf, as they have the responsibility to stand
    with everything on top. The deposits are actually two fire extinguishers, one of two kg of CO2 and one of six kg of powder, both lost contents and received internal treatment anti oxygen
    (anti-corrosion zinc spray), the visible tubes are for filling of liquid refrigerant.
    The blocks and radiator EKWB are well inside the box, actually this is being done by measure for this purpose.
    In front, the acrylic jars filled with light and, with the right touch until they are able to change color.
    Jokes apart of that I got rid of, just missing the sleeving, covers for the source and disks with
    the brand name and, more important, my version of the connectors.

    Greetings,
    Here comes a small update, the scheme of fittings and a sample of it.

    That is going to look amazing!
    Just curious in which manner you're using this. Aristotle or Theravada?

    Sorry bro, I don´t understand the meaning of Aristotle or Theravada, is supposed to be philosophical or a way of life?
    Sometimes my mind is a bit slow.

    You said "In the middle is virtue." This could either be a reference to Aristotle's philosophical teachings on ethics, or to one of the pillars of Theravada Buddhism, which is actually referred to as "the middle path."
    I wasn't sure if it was something lost in translation or if you were saying something really profound, lol.

    All that aside, the case is looking great and this new bit with the tubing is going to be incredible.

    I think I learned something about the Theravada philosophy moments ago, but until there is some truth in your words, one of my bases of life is to be better tomorrow than I am today, and have been able to be better today than I was yesterday, it's just a matter of going trying and when results appear the strength increases and life gets easier.

    I've done a test on compressed air and gave it to correct the zone where the O-rings are housed, so it is too early to come up with values of psi or bars, when I have them I show their values.

    Greetings, here's an update.
    This week I haven't had much time. Just for complete the pump cover. Also made
    the psu cover with the holes to pass the wires, the original fan is green and will be replaced by one white,
    also with 140 mm. Tweaked on the back of the motherboard, and actually went well, I used the M4 holes
    and made a box for the hard disk, shown here with an old disk.
    In the section of the wires already appears a acrylic part for the wires of the motherboard
    and another mounted on the radiator for the fans and fans leds.
    Of rest are photographs of details.

    The wire braid and brass joints look great together. Good job. This makes my cornhole set I'm working on look like child's play.

    Agree 100%- that setup looks fantastic!

    You should take steps to protect that design (case and tubing, etc..) before it ends up in an Inwin or EK catalog!

    I don't think it would be common sense if someone like IN WIN or EKWB or others do it because simply would be picking up the crumbs off the floor instead of hiring the Baker, if you know what I mean. On the other hand who runs for pleasure never tires.
    As evidence of this, by any chance you've seen some Eagle like this two?

    How did you secure the steel braid over the hoses? ..actually, how did you get the fitting into the sleeve chain and make it look so neat? I am willing to accept "God of Metal Fabrication" as an answer.

    I was going to go for the "We are not worthy" gif, but I'll go for this instead.

    Just to mention that I won't meet completely the vastness that lies between the circle and the square.

    Actually tubes in steel mesh bought them in a shop, hoses to the dishwasher, and are composed of a rubber hose over the steel mesh. It was from here that made these connectors fit with some pressure (low) and the outer rings complete the service. After I already knew beforehand that I would not be able to do the angle connectors because I don't have such machinery, but one day I remembered the robot of the Iron Maiden, more precisely of the joints of the legs, and then the idea was born from here.
    But still I found challenges, by my lack of resources, they made me change the design.[/QUOTE]
