Thought I'd toss up an old pic of last build (680i was nice for the time). It obviously wasn't fully completed but I thought some might like to see the custom copper tubing (before polishing) - I think having the extra copper helps a little bit with temps as the tubing radiates heat as well and there is no doubt in my mind that the flow characteristics of 1/2" copper pipe are very good. Starting on an chilled water (TEC) i7 setup in the new year.
j/k - A real beauty you've put together there brewer!
I said it before, and I'll say it again - I love the way that custom plate on the back of the case turned out. For those less familiar with the ATCS840 - the plate that comes with the case for the rear/top is about as cheap and flimsy as it gets. And it's held on by only two screws diagonal from each other, so simply lifting and moving the case can easily result in damage to the stock plate.
