    Thin ITX Steambox Rival (Watercooled)

    I really wanted to make a mini ITX build but in a slim style case, not the fat cube like ones that i always see. Its turning out quite well and if I can squeeze all my watercooling into the case it will be one heck of a pc!

    Planned Hardware:
    Rog maximux VI impact
    i7 4770k
    16gb dominator platinum
    Msi HD 7990
    silverstone 1000w psu
    Swiftech Apoge Drive II
    240mm radiator and a 80mm radiator

    I will post the pics i have taken so far below!

    Originally the case was a Dell optiplex 790 but i gutted the insides bare and painted most of it black. I also cut most of the side panel away and replaced it with a slotted sort of grill that will allow for good airflow. For fun I riveted on a handle and latch from a toolbox i had so i can carry the thing around now

    Mod the case a bit...It is more than a bit ugly at the moment I'm afraid.

    Yeah, its not what I had hoped for but its what Ive got so. I will eventually try to put some trim or something to cover up any rough edges. More pics will come tomorrow after i get home from work, i have the water loop partially completed now.

    got the rest of the fittings today, and finished the water loop. Now all thats left is to fill it!!
    Heres some pictures of the case, i need a few more fittings to get rid of the tubing sticking out the back panel but i want to get everything working first and then tidy up the loop.
