Well im sorry to say but the dream of water cooling the sawtooth has struck a huge problem. The sawtooth case isn't big enough to house the water cooling kit.I cut the heck out of the case for everything to fit but forgot a major mile stone. The CPU and the DVD+RW are in the way of eachother. Theres no room for the water block. So now im stuck using a ATX case. Next payday I will hunt down a new case for the porject. I remembering seeing a case that looks kinda like the G5 powermacs but with out the mesh on the front.
Right now the sawtooth case is sitting in the garage and the parts sitting next to me in a box. I hate it when I forgot one little detail. Guess now I can use the turn my B&W into a sawtooth colored case from the left over parts. Theres no point for contuning useing the old case since I havn't had a chance to build a drive tray/sled for it.
I ran into a similar problem when I tried to install a sawtooth board in my smurf case, my Dual Optical drive hack was in the way. What about using a laptop optical drive mounted as high up as possible?
What does the water cooling kit consist of, can you modifie the parts or make some new ones. I used a stock kit that i refited with a custom piece that i machined to fit in the zip slot. I know that you might not know how to machine parts but you can probaly get a part made for around 100 dollars. Point me to the kit you have and i will have a look at what can be done
