Thanks. I am rather proud too. :biggrin:

The end is in sight now. Need to make two fan cables, sleeve front panel cables, drill a few holes, powder coat, and get some custom acrylic work done. Might even finish this year! :haha:

This first pic is how the coolant actually looks. It is hard to get detailed pics of the rest of the system unfortunately unless I overexpose. I haven't done any actual new work on it.

I didn't notice before... did you frost the cylinder of your res?
Yes. It was heavily scratched from a system I did a few years ago. Was able to get rid of most just by heating the acrylic with a heat gun. The rest I got rid of by frosting it. There will be more frosted acrylic in the final version of the system as I am aware the single frosted piece looks out of place.

Didn't look out of place at all IMO. I was thinking that it did a pretty good job of accentuating the colour match between the sleeving and your coolant.

The more I look at this build the more I want to experiment with acrylic tubes. I like the frosted res, looks awesome.

You need a lot of patience for acylic. At least if you want to do a good job. It is similar to sleeving in which you can't be afraid to toss the piece and start over if you make a mistake. If you make a bad bend there is almost no going back and fixing it.

I am a very patient man and this mod I am doing plus the sleeves have taught me even more. I will wait for the right time, and most likely when I get the second GPU after the mod is done. Look, once again you have managed to inspire me and that is not a small feat:thumb:
