My Ideas!?!
I'm planning on using polished copper pipe for my cooling loop.
I want to make my Hdd Rack out of the G5 Cpu cooler cover plate.
Im going to give the top tray a more brushed finish to match the case

Pics ((sorry for the wall of pictures)don't mind the mess :mrgreen:)




I was originally going to have this next part cut for me but i wasnt happy with the prices i was getting so i did it myself for 1/15th the cost and im happy with the outcome, i just need to have the mounting point bent



Im hoping these will give a little more support to the rad bracket




The rad need a little more support so i made a bracket to hold the other side to stop the wobble then cleaned them up for painting




Bit more painting, im really happy with how they came up.


Have been really busy and havent done much but here is a test fit picture

Great work so far, will be following this build closely. I would recommend not painting the PSU because you might regret it in the future, also might void that nice 10 year warranty. If you want it a different color you could buy a sheet of acrylic and cut to size and paint that instead. You could use double stick tape to hold it in place.

Well, if your going to void, then paint it. You have a lot more patience then I do. I just went with a cable of kit spacifically made for the rmx series
