    Back again,

    This is another mod I did to the 5.25 drive bays so that the fittings for the front rad could go up into the drive bay area..


    I completely removed one of the 3.5" drive bays and also the lower plastic drive bay mount the modded the other 3.5" drive bay from 3 slots down to 1 !!
    Here's some pix of the process.

    Stock removable drive bay


    Then I cut it in half.


    Then started to shorten the two halfs






    Yay it fits. The two halfs clip together !! I did and up pop riveting it just to be safe.




    Heres a pic test fitting the 2TB drive in the bay and the bay in the case..


    Here's a pic of the bay pop riveted with the pump/res mounts, mounted to the top..


    That's all the mods I did to the steel parts of the case..

    Here's the mod I had to do to the top plastic cover... I had to make room for the third fan...

    This is the Stock cover with the lines drawn on where I have to cut..


    Here it is cut and ready to go..


    I also had to mod the top grill to make room for the fans. Here's a pic with the top grill pulled apart ready to be cut..


    I forgot to take a pic of the frame section cut out but you can see in this pic the section I removed.. It worked a treat and now there's a heap of room for the 25mm thick fans..


    Well that's all the mods for this case and it's time to put some hardware in it.

    Here's some pix of some of the hardware I'm using..

    ASUS MVF Mobo








    ROG Thunder FX




    Intel 3770k CPU


    16 GB of memory


    XSPC Raystorm CPU water block


    240gb SSD


    2TB HDD


    ATI 5770 GPU'S there's two of them of cause. There from my old pc.. I would love to upgrade them but just can't afford to. I'd also like to water
    Cool them but being as old as they are I can't find any water blocks for them..


    The 8 XSPC fans that are going in. There 2000 RPM, 73 CFM


    Alphacool 360 x 30mm top rad


    Alphacool 240 x 60mm front rad


    Well that's it for this post. The next post will be pix of the parts being installed...

    Project "still no name !!"

    Sorry for the slow update guys but here we go..

    Ok I said earlier that I didnt take pix of the frame work from the top grill but I found a vid I did that had it in it so I snapped a few frames from it and these are it. Here it is stock


    Here's the section I cut out.


    Here it is after being cut.


    And here's the frame mounted in the top of the case without its grill cover..


    I also forgot to show yous this pic of the right side case panel.. I painted the inside of it Matt black so it blends in to the inside of the case.. Because the white stoud out like dogs balls.. You'll see want I mean later in the build...


    Anyways back on track....

    Firstly I installed the SSD on the rear of the motherboard tray...


    I then installed the CPU, Waterblock, Fittings, then the memory..








    I then installed the I/O sheild and Mobo into the case. I got a little excited and forgot to take pix with just the Mobo installed and started installing the tubing. So here's a pic with the first section of tube installed. I have also installed the two Red LED's into the CPU Waterblock..


    Here's some pix of the top 360x30mm RAD with the fitting installed




    I then installed the top RAD.




    I installed the top fans at the same time of cause... I've since flipped the top fans over to push air Into the RAD instead of pulling air out through the RAD


    Then I installed the fittings into the front 240x60mm RAD


    Then I installed it.


    Then it was time to add a bit more tubing.






    I then started on the pump an RES setup.. Here's a pic of all the parts that make it up...


    Here's a pic or two of it together..




    Well it's 5:00 in the morning again and it's time to go to bed..... Till next time, Cheers....

    Thanks heaps for the heads up.... but yeah sure did... i filled each of them 5 or 6 times with hot tap water and shook the crap out of them each time... I then ran 4 liters of distilled water through each of them by filling, sealling with end caps, shacking the crap out of them and emptying them and repeating.. took me over 3 hour to do LOL....

    SSHHHHH ... dont tell anyone but i've already got the system up and running but im only updating here as i get a spare hour or so to upload pix to photobucket and type up the writing, etc... but yeah when i did the leak test it did take a little for the air to come out but I just slowly moved the case around and switched the pump off and on a few times.... it's only dropped about 1mm in the res since i last filled it after all the large air bubbles went.. so all is good... I hope !!! but again, cheers bud...

    I'll hopefully get a chance tonight to put some more up....
