    hello again, well sorta......

    the reason i stopped doing this project, has been 'left by the road-side' i.e. i dumped her....:cool:

    ive not done that much, as ive been trying to have as much fun as possible, but ive done a little bit over the last few days, which i'll post in a couple of minutes..:)

    there should be lots of big/little updates over the next couple of weeks or so.......:D

    Nice to see your doing something with it now. :)

    What is that peice of plastic you cut out, going to be used for? It looks a bit like a fan holder, but I'm not sure...

    they have decided not to slice me open in the end

    i just have to 'rest' it for a week or so..... :duh: but being almost 15, im not going to listen to them :naughty:

    Anywho....im hoping to get my orderes put in tommorow for a whole load of watercooling and general modding bits..... :clap:

    [​IMG]

    I did some marking out on the Mobo plate for where im gonna cut it. This will be so i can easily tighten/loosed the hold down for the TDX...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And some other random photos of the hardware.... (I love that RAM!!!)

    [​IMG]

    and now back to killing people on BF2 :p

    ......Anyway, I was getting all the other 'bits' ordered when i sorta realised i can't afford half of it.... So now, there is no aquatube ect. but i still ordered the barbs, however, i think i forgot to order the 8/10mm tubing :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:
    So, if i have, i'll have to go back to using my 1/2" ID tubing.... anyway im gonna get some more spray paint and filler to use on the front drivebays.....

    but yesterday....::

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I wanted the front door to look plain, so i wanted to get rid of the holes that show the HDD and Power LEDs.. (these are gonna be hooked up the LED's on some vandal switches -|- the Power one will go on the power switch -|- the HDD activity will go on the LED on the CC on off Vandal.....)

    [​IMG]

    Because there are no LED's, i started sanding off the small images, and will dremel out the rest of the raised holes this afternoon....

    [​IMG]

    i went out earlier and got my self some fairly cheap Bonbo / Car Body filler to use on the front bezels.....

    [​IMG]

    I want the main front to look slightly plain, but flat and clean.... Im gopping to eventually get a small temp read-out to go next to the switches (which should be here tommorow morning......

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This is my first experiance with filler, so i hope it looks good after some sanding.....

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    It didn't fit on becuase of my EK X18/19 so i cut down some of the smaller
    fins...

    [​IMG]

    I like the look of the HDD silencer....

    Wow - it seems that if everyone just ignores this thread, you post lots of pictures and updates! :D

    Very nice work Mankz!

    P.S. Who takes the picture when you're playing BF2? :)

    hush..........:D

    im not fussed if the hardware is old...

    i'll keep it for a while, get a mid range DX10 card and 2Gb of RAM eventually....

    Im off to go sanding again now, then when my other package with the various cables and fans come, i can start putting it together....
    Im gonna keep the inside of th case as it is for now, then may take it all out and get it painted at school....

    @ Rambo...:: It was taken by my Brother....
