Now I've been asked why the holes I've drilled for the radiator mounting are as big as they are. Some might have mistaken it to be a mishap, but I did it on purpose The reason for this is that I want to use anti vibration o-rings, to reduce the noise it might cause from the side of the case. I just didn't have the time to finish it when I worked on it last.

Just to clarify, here's a smaller update on how it looks now:

The o-rings themselves:



Mounted:



Close-up:



Hope that clears it up for people wondering

Thanks for looking!

Update 28/4


Hi Guys


A little update on some progress

First of all, I've added an additional Vertex 3 to my build, boosting the performance a little These babies are awesome in RAID!



When mounting the radiator, my holes where a bit off, so I had to file a little more to make a perfect fit, unfortunately, my hand slipped with the file, scratching the ROG logo... Now I didn't actually feel any regret by damaging it, because it gave me the opportunity to add a clean window instead, which I have come to like a lot more than the one with the logo, anyone feel the same?



Some new Golf fans and Silverstone fan filters, which I plan on mounting along with the radiator.



I am currently thinking of replacing the fans with a couple of these babies instead, what do you guys think?



Mounted:



Now they look a little nude just hanging there, so I've made a frame to cover the fans, materials used for this:



Foiled and glued together:



New window mounted, as well as fan frame for the radiator fans:



Closeup:



Reaching the goal soon, I still need to sleeve the SATA power cables for the Vertex 3's, find some black "caps" for the radiator mounting screws (thinking of painting them black if I don't find any) as well as complete my liquid cooling Still lacking parts tho, so I'll keep updating as the parts start coming in for installment







Hope you guys like it and as always, thanks for looking !

New case is a Corsair Carbide 500R White, komplett had them at half price....that kinda made the decision for me whether to mod the old or get a new lol
Managed to get my new and rather thick Coolstream XT240 rad into it aswell without modding....now i just need to figure out how to get the cables sorted as i dont have a modular psu....oh well need to decide where i want to put my pump aswell

Must say im very happy with that case looks great without bling bling, 3 step fan controller for the "built in" fans and you can turn light in them on and off, not stuff you cant do without but a nice touch i think, actually i did "mod" something...drive bays werent ment for dual bay res clearly, so i had to apply some brute force to bend some metal to be able to get my dual bay res in lol, oh and i think i might get some plexi for the side instead of the mesh
And i need either a modular psu or get mine modded coz the cables are driving me nuts lol

Looking forward to see more updates of your mod mate

Nice a window is always nice, and fixing the cable mess is a must! It's a real pain to look at when they are all over the place

Will post more soon!

Haha sounds like a good idea sleeving isn't that hard, it just takes a hell of a lot of time to do

Miniupdate 9/5-12


Hi Guys


Here's a short update on the SATA sleeving.

Wires stripped down and 2 SATA connectors removed:



Sleeved:



Mounted:




Updates on the watercooling project will start tomorrow and continue the weekend over.

I have received almost all parts. 3 packages came today, but I wasn't home, so won't be able to pick them up before tomorrow from the post office.

I've made some new changes to the project, changing the placement of the radiator and hard drives, so that I can avoid having the fans sticking out from the side of the case, but more on that later

I am planning on completely finishing the project monday, perhaps sooner. D3 Launches tuesday next week, so I need it all done in time for the game lol

Stay tuned and thanks for looking !

A little update on some of the stuff I've received until now:

Fittings:



The reason for having fittings from both EK and BP, is because the danish coolerkit.dk and aquatuning.de, where I've ordered my parts from, are both out of stock and wont be able to deliver before the end of the month/beginning of next month. I can't for for that, since I'm on a deadline I'll change them out later on, but for now I just need the system up and running



Radiator mount + grill:



Closeup:



EK Supreme HF:







More pics tomorrow

Thanks for looking!

Update 11/5-12


Hey guys

Here's one of the last updates I'll bring to this project log I am finally finished with the project. I'll be uploading some more pictures tomorrow where I plan on taking some better ones, showing off the case, but for now here's the last progress update, as well as some final photos. Hope you guys enjoyed it

In order to make room for my radiator this has to be removed.



Fitting nicely inside now





Sidepanel needs to be re-cut:



Hole and threads done, still needs some filling though:





Grill attached:



In the meantime, some new parts arrived, Koolance RP-402X2 Reservoir with Laing DDC 1Plus pump, I know I wrote earlier that I was going for the XSPC reservoir, but this just look sooo much cooler!:



EK waterblock for GFX:



HDD Rack from Lian Li:





Need a new hole for the 12+12V powerconnector for the motherboard:



All done:



HDD Rack is WAAAAY too big, so this will need some adjustments:





Front pulled off:



A fan fits nicely in between the "shroud" Lian Li made and the grill:



Chop chop:







Need a couple of new threads for the HDD mounting:





Like a glove:



Radiator rack mounted as well:





Supreme HF installed:



Just love these BP fittings! They are the real deal:



Girlfriend grinding my balls, I guess I've made a bit of a mess lol



Daylight's come again, looks a lot better



Progress until now:



GFX got a makeover: EK waterblock along with EK backplate:



So shiny





Mmmmm:





Final package arrived, new fans, hose and cooling liquid (Forgot to take a picture of the coolant, but I'm using PrimoChill ICE non-conductive Blood Red):







All mounted up:



Hosing almost done, I've made holes in the cover plate, enabling me to pull the hoses through the plate and down to the radiator, instead of behind the 5.25" bays:





Finally coming to an end:





Some quick shots of the end result:







Hope you guys enjoyed it. I'll post some more final pictures tomorrow, when I've got more time

As always thanks for looking!
