Thumbs up Project "Liquid Silver" Is Complete !! And Going up on EBAY !!

Well after a tremendous amount of work, several setbacks and a whole slew of aluminum shavings it's finished !

The first picture is a bracket I made from a piece of 1/8 inch aluminum stock for a 60mm fan. The fan is used to cool the memory on the 9800. I was able to gain 22Mhz on a core overclock with the addition of the watercooling block and the fan allows me to run the Mem @ 385 with no visual artifacts. It is also a very quite solution.

This picture shows the way I used a Chrome plated Wire loom from Mr. Gasket that is normally used to hold Spark Plug wires as brackets to keep the tubing in place

This gives a good idea of the final layout. lthough I may do a little "tweaking" of the layout I am pretty happy with it. What do YOU think?

Although not as "Bright" as I would have liked, and the Camera turned my "Orange" UV Dye pink it still is getting quite a few compliments. UV luvin' at it's best

A shot of the 9800 and assorted fittings and connectors on the board. All the edges of the cards and MB were gone over with a Sharpie Orange Gel highlighter. I didn't think it would look good but I think it comes off pretty well.

Although it's been a lot of work I have to say this has been my favorite project to date.

She'll do 23K+ at Mark01 - 7670 at Mark03 - 50K+ in Aquamark and runs UT2004 like it's a walk in the park Lol.

Thanks. For all the compliments - Hints - tips and encouragement.

Now I need to figure out "What's Next" Lol.

For those interested......This case will more than likely be up for bid in the very near future

Thanks Again guys !! Hope you enjoyed it. I know I have

That is a seriously sweet case. I feel so powerless - I'm at uni with no modding equipment, seeing things like this is making me start to twitch. Can't wait to get home, I have plans...though I don't know if they'll turn out as good as yours (I doubt it anyway).

And it came out reall sweet too!! Excellent! Sorry you have to sell such a thing of beauty under such duress. Just glad you have it to sell!! The mod forum here on the old AOA has been producing pretty good the last few months. Let's keep it going! thanks for sharing this with us fpsfreak!

The attention to detail makes a big difference - that's a first class job.
