    After many many hours of testing and testing i finally found the way to illuminate the plexi without being clear the position of the source of light.. What do you think of the outcome? Some more assembling and we are done.. Time for the photoshooting.. Special Thanks to Mike a.k.a Barfastic for helping me with the project and for the time he took to photoshoot it.. Thank you very much for your time! I hope you 'll like this project as much as i enjoyed building it! Special thanks to Bitspower and Phobya for sponsoring the project.
  3. Hardware MOBO: MSI Big Bang Marshal B3 CPU: 2600k RAM: 8GB Corsair Dominator GT 2133 GPU: 2 x MSI NGTX560 Ti Hawk SSD: OCZ Agility 3 HDD: WD Raptor 74 GB RAID 0[/color] Watercooling Pumps: 2 x Swiftech MCP655 on Dual Serial Bitspower Top Radiators: 2 x Phobya Xtreme 400 Fans: 4 x Phobya G-Silent 180 Fittings: Compression 13mm-19mm Bitspower Fittings CPU Waterblock: EK Supreme HF Full Copper GPU Waterblock: EK Supreme HF Bride Edition RAM Waterblock: Bitspower 4 DIMM Waterblock MOBO Waterblock: Bitspower Full Cover Block Special thanks to Bitspower and Phobya for sponsoring the project. Lets start with some photos of the parts that i ll be using.. Some Bitspower Compression Fittings 13/19 Phobya G Silent 180 Ek Supreme HF - It started as full copper but i nickeled it and then powder coated the cover. Some more parts from Ek.. The full cover block for MSI Big Bang from Bitspower What i love about bitspower is that in their packaging they include spare o-rings and screws etc.. Naked Board getting preped for the waterblock The block is on.. it looks lovely but there is too much dust on it.. Clear link from one part to the other.. it looks pretty awesome.. Some more parts from Ek.. And the magic coolant So .. lets start doing some work now... I took a small project box to house the power connections for the 2 pumps, so now with 1 4pin molex i power both of the pumps without any wires being uncovered. The case that i ll use is a Coolermaster HAF X, the idea is to remove all of the drive/hdd bays etc and have an empty case to modify as i want.. So i took all the 5.25 bays off and from the HDD cage i cutted out 2 slots and throw the rest of it away Dremel.. Temporarilly placed it behind the pumps to check the free space that i have.. Now i took some cardboard to make a prototype of the covers that i ll make.. Cardboard made to steel, more of a dummy to check for faulse measurements etc. After a couple of dummies i finally made it to go for the aluminum, now everything is measured correct and i added some throwpasses for cables etc. 3 mm Plexi on top of the cover.. HDD trays accesible from the fron of the cover.. Time for sleeving, i used MDPC sleeve.. Thanks Nils! I got the plastics back from painting, thanks to George ( a.k.a Kopritis ) the outcome is really what i had in mind. Fan blades at the same color.. Custom made logo.. i am really happy with the result, i love the fact that it have that "Stock" look.. At this point i am trying to figure out the loop path... A small holding bracket for a 24pin molex made of plexi.. Time to do some soldering.. Now.. its time for the hard part of the VGA cooling.. As we know there isnt any full cover waterblock for the 560 Ti Hawk on the market.. so i had to find a way to cool the vrm's and the memory.. This is the fatory plate that keeps the card component cool.. i measured everything and went to the waterjet I took 2 pieces of Fischer heatsink Thats what is left from the heatsink.. that waterjet is a reall piece of machinery! And thats what i have now! I lowered the height of some fins so the bridge of the waterblock can pass through it.. After many many days of searching for someone to anodize the heatsinks.. i didnt find anyone So i had to paint them, i used heat resist black matt spray, the result is really nice Drilled some holes on the heatsink and open threads for 2.5 mm screws, i used little springs to tension the heatsink on the vga. Sleeving time again.. I wanted to somehow change the fronpanel.. i decided to remove the slide panel that haf x has and replace it with 1 mm aluminum covers Black Powder coat Starting to take shape.. Some cable managment on the back
