Hi fellow modders,

Thanks to Nate from E22 for the design.

The design:

The hardware that comes in is still a suprise...even for me ;)/> , but anyway there will be an SLI set and some cool watercooling

After buying aluminum strips and other stuff at the hardware store, it was time to start building. After some fitting and measuring the frame was created. I still had an old Mobo tray from a old TJ07.

Another update :)/> Need to catch up with my FB updates ;)/>

I have covered the acrylic panels with matte black vinyl and installed some fans to see how it looks

And cut two acrylic plates. 1 for the controller (aquaero VF) and 1 for the lamptron switches
Also blackened with vinyl

I want to build this one without too much cost, so in this build if possible, all kind of stuff that I allready have.
The first idea was to purchase a 480 rad, but also overhere a bit crisis. So it's becoming two 240 rads. That's why I made ​​the front panel again with the fanholes more apart.
Side effect is that it looks better i think, left-center-right all the same sizes between them

DSC00612.jpg

This also blackened and polished the edges.

Placed the mobo with some EKWB blocks. And naturally straight tubes

Almost straight

The Aquaero/Lamptron console looks great mate and coupled with your trademark straight tubing :wub:

Man that is so nice. WOW I appreciate your reality check on using some stuff that you already have! most of us living in the real world don't have the money for $6000.00 builds. The E22 design is trade mark and you got the skill to pull it off. Did I say WOW!
