Ram clearence is an issue we all know about.
And well it is happening hhere as well,
It is something to expect when trying to go all small on a computer build with watercooling.
But there are ways of fixing this ☺

Drain and fill port system in the making.

Keep in mind this is only a test fit
The final loop will be done with other piping and all the fittings will be chrome.

I think this turned out alright ,
Now on to the next part

Front Panel progressing nicely
Going for that Ford Model A look ,still lots of work ahead.

and finally it continues...
First order of parts have arrived...
I sure love me some fittings 😎
together with some nickel plated tubing and Alphacool flowsensor (which in my opinion is a gorgeos Design)

First nickel plated pipes are in place 😎

If the rest of the build continues with this level of craftsmanship it will be one of the coolest I've ever seen on SweC. Looks very cool so far.

Okay. Ég elskar það. More chrome imo. I love the psu and would have wanted chrome on the front fan with red blades as the... Cylinders or whatever it is on the first picture of the actual hot rod car. Would have loved that.

Great work I check in almost every day, really fun to follow?
