    I was racking my brain trying to find a small waterproof container to have at least a small resevoire....then I remembered I picked up two waterproof instrument cases ( 120mm X 160mm X 80mm) on the FreeStore, one of them will fit just beautifully in an 80mm v-slot setup, will probably make the rad/fan frame out of 80mm v-slot as well so that it will be symetrycal, and let me make some better rad/fan brackets to hold them in place. and it has a clear lid, so I can dye the water/antifreeze a cool florescent color for some bling.

    I am going to try using it without a reservoir, I hope it will work just as it is. If it does need a small reservoir, I will hang it on the back side of the frame, or possibly build it into a mounting base. This has been a sort of design it as you build it project, I work best that way.

    Looks good @dddman . Your picture made me realize that I should have a temperature sensor with readout. Will have to add that feature to mine.

    @dddman lol! It is so obvious that a temp readout would be helpful and we both missed it.
