    My next job is to get the top done in the same poly, and the back to be covered in mesh like the front.

    heh, im an idiot.

    I got the M2 tap from a model supplier. Hobbyrama.
    You can get them from specialist tools stores as well.



    EDIT: My bad, its an M2.
    well, whatever it is that requires a 2.5mm drill bit.

    Long time update.

    Remote box done.

    [​IMG]

    This box contains a power LED and Switch, which are integrated.
    Below that is the IDE light.
    Below that is 3 temp sensors.

    First one is ambient, second one is coolant hot side, third one is coolant cool side.
    I am going to change that though, there isnt enough of a temp difference between the hot side and the cool side of the radiator, so im going to use a sensor on something else, perhaps CPU block temp.

    Thanks to those sensors though, i have discovered that my radiator is overkill for this machine, so im going to wind the fans down a bit more to reduce noise.

    The outgoing coolant temperature is often only 1-2 degrees above ambient.

    This gives a whole new meaning to 'built, not bought' amazing, I almost can't comprehend everything that has gone into this...

    Why no more tube spaghetti? It was so cool before :(

    Also is that 2 sound cards I see?
    Surely 6 SSDs is a little bit overkill. :shock::Paranoid:

    Both builds were great. love the use of an air-con coil.

    I also love the use of the larger-than-standard Dell PSU. Contrary to popular belief, those higher end Dell PSUs are built like tanks. It isn't by any chance a H750P-00 is it? I have one of those in my stash or spare parts. It's built so well that I can't bring myself to toss it, but it doesn't fit into any of my cases :( (other than my old Antec 1200, which has an even more bulletproof also rather giant Delta DPS-750CB)
