Very nice If it were me the I'd probably move the res to the back of the side panel to have shorter hose but other than that it looks pretty good. What CPU you running?

I purposely placed the reservoir there. The reason being that I can monitor water level and up additives if need be, easily. This also explains the LED in it, making it worth presentable.

I kept the reservoir and rad outside so that heat remains outside the casing. Furthermore, I used my existing standard size PC casing that did not have enough room for such a big reservoir.


PC:

Intel 3.2Ghz HT ... OC 3.8Ghz

ASUS P5WD2 Premium Mobo

Asus Nvidia 6600 Engine: 300, DDR2: 500... OC Engine: 400, DDR2: 610

RAM: Corsair Value RAM DDR2 667 ... OC 714

Other than that HDDs, optical drive and stuff.


CPU Waterblock: Made from Al
GPU Water Block: Made from Cu
Rad: Heater core
Piping: Steel reinforced piping
Barbs: Made from brass
