First step was to cut out the consoles of the 3.5†drive bays to get place for the water pump. After that the full house got matt black painting. Than I took apart the front panel, the wires got sleeved and the led indicators were changed from factory blue to orange.

It also got 2 bores for 2 potentiometers (left is the speed control of the pump, right adjusts the intensity of led lighting).

When I finished I gave it to my friend who is something like an artist. As you can see he made the CM logo rusty and painted the house this Stalker style, thanks a lot for him!

I made a plastic side cover by a plastic specialist factory. They look great together with the case.

Also 3 Coolink Swif ventilators and an SLI bridge were modded to the style of the case.

I have a stock CM M850 PSU let’s mod that bad guy : )
 
 
Fist take him apart and change the factory green and blue vga connectors to black ones.

After that as you can see I used black and yellow sleeves but for better contrast I soldered out the factory cables and replaced them with orange ones and then they got the yellow sleeves. I cut the sleeved cables to the correct length. I made some other cables: an 8 and a 6 pin vga and 3 sata (odd, hdd, ssd) cables.

The house of the power supply got copper paint job.

I bought some nice bolts for better look.

 Let’s see the water cooling system.
 
 
I have an EKWB supreme on the processor, a full cover Aquacomputer Aquagrafx copper block on the GTX 580 and a Laing D5 pump. My first plan was an SLI system but one of my vgas went wrong so now I have only one. I wanted to have a really big radiator because of passive cooling. So I bought a VW Golf 3 radiator.

I bought 12 mm copper tubes and fittings. I put all the parts in the house. After measuring I cut the tubes and soldered them all together.

I had to make 2 holes on the painted side panel to connect the radiator with the cooling system. The radiator got a filling and a leaking hole at the top and bottom. the upper one has a small bore because of pressure. The non copper part of the vga block got matt black painting. The radiator got copper paint job and 2 legs so it stands next to the house.
