Here are a couple of close-ups of the LCD - again used the same strapping material that mounted the GPU and the PSU. In this case, just made a simple "U" shape and then bolted it to the rad.

And from the other side...

Now one thing that is nice with the vertical GPU mount - hides that rat's nest for all the MOBO connections,..

This run almost turned out perfect, from the sense that it is almost a perfectly aligned loop. That being said, that small tube on the right must've taken about 9 tries before I got it right. And of course the 9th time was using acrylic for some reason which I cracked, but thankfully the 10th back using PETG worked.

And now the changing of the guard - I do have to say I love how Blue Max turned out, and I love the Corsair crystal case (note that it will be coming up for sale soon), but I am also very happy how the new rig turned out. Still wish I made the effort to go with glass tubing, but thats a story for another day..

Goodbye Blue!

Here is the second LCD running the sensor panel from AIDI64 - still a WIP but I wanted to get something up to check out the temps on the rig. I will spend more time in the future on this panel, but for now I like the overall idea..

And the little Barrow flow meter - technically I could've tucked it away somewhere as I brought the sensor on to the LCD, but this was a good spot for it.

Here is the rig without the curved glass front (too many reflections for the picture). And I also need to shorten down the mounting bars which means I need to find a lathe somewhere..

I also like the look of the clear liquid, and right now using the blue theme - not too overpowering, but at night it looks quite striking..

And here is another close up (somewhat blurry) of the LCD - again its going to take awhile to pretty this up, but definitely kind've cool having a separate panel that has all the temps and various random gauges. I wish I was a bit more artistic - some of the people on the Aida64 boards have made some amazing displays - although to be honest, the gauges out of the box aren't that bad and
