Inet 001 - Codename Mono - Final pictures!




This project is made on behalf of


*Awards are valid for Sweden only.

I give the word over to the people behind Inet;
"We here at Inet felt that we needed somehing special and unique to mark the start of something new, the acquisition of Indomo. A new era for computer modification and watercooling in Sweden.

We are proud to present our collaboration with Laine. For a couple of weeks you will get to follow as his creation comes to life. We gave Laine free hands to create and choose both what the computer should look like and what it should contain, both on hardware and cooling.
Here is part one av Mono - something beyond the ordinary."





Pre-release;

A hastely thrown together 'proof of concept' of watercooling in a Lian Li PC-Q11B. I wanted to know that it was possible to get your basic setup into the case before promising anything about something groundbreaking.



The things again hastely mounted in the case to get an estimate of what will fit, this time the real deal, a PC-Q11W.



Early planning and placement of both the PSU and the rear radiator.



The PC-Q11W in relation to a Streacom/Wesena F1C. The computer on top is called Nano and a Swedish gallery for it can be found [HERE].



Partslist;

Hardware:
CPU: Intel i7 2600K
GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2048MB
MB: ZOTAC Z68-ITX WiFi
RAM: Corsair 8GB (2x4096MB) CL9 1600Mhz VENGEANCE LP White
PSU: Silverstone ST45SF 450W
SSD: Corsair SSD Force GT 120GB x2
CSE: Lian Li PC-Q11W

Cooling:
PMP: EK DCP 2.2
RAD: Black ICE SR1 120mm
RAD: Black ICE SR1 140mm
RES: EK Multioption 100mm
GPU: EK-FC670 GTX
CPU: EK Supreme HF

And copious amounts of mixed Bitspower fittings (quite a bit over 50 I think).

Part I


And I got the green light for release, here we go.



The build, already from the start, had some clear goals. A small footprint, light construction and of course, to be uncompromised.
These goals had to be reached without sacrificing performance.


Somewhat stripped front, but this is where I started the build.




Test fitting of the parts. The rear houses both a custom made adapter for SFX-PSUs and a somewhat trimmed down version of a Bitspower Mesh Radguard 120mm.



And for you who are curious regarding the studio and photos, here is a peak at the current one.



And the radiators for this build. I chose these because of the low FPI, giving the possibility to run the build as silently as possible.



The radiators are paired up with one Scythe Slip Stream 1200rpm 120mm each. From the left; Modded with a 140mm frame - stock - modded by removing the frame almost completely.



Not the best caption ever, but here you can see the fans lowered into the radiators, making them almost invisible.



And for storage, these beauties! A pair of Corsair Force GT 120GB.



Part II of this build will most probably be presented on Monday the upcomming week, with part III on Wednesday and part IIII on Friday.

Also I can't release too much information, or pictures right now since the 'big boys' at Inet have to keep up with me on their Facebook page and what not. But yeah, if you like the build or do in the future, feel free to drop a line to Inet to show that the "venture" is worth it, and that there is an interest for these kind of things.

In the mean time, I have some links to my older logs (in Swedish but with lots of pictures) in my signature below if it would be of interest for some.

Nice to see this little water-cooled build.

Beautiful modding Laine.

I was gonna ask if you were Laine from XS and considering your sig, that would be you. Dont be offended when i say your photog skills are better than your modding lol.

It's a small world. These are great little cases though!


Part II

The radguard got a nice glossy white finish to match the rest of the exterior.


And the insides were coated in a satin black, along with the radiator now being a flat white.


Test mounting of the motherboard, after painting the cooler the same flat white as the radiator.


Those Vengeance-sticks are beautiful!


Here's a better view of the WLAN adapter. The bracket holding the antennas and the one holding the adapter itself were both finished of in black, same goes with the adapter. The cables got rerouted through the cooler.


Some more planning of the loop.




EK FC-GTX580DCII that I modded on to a KFA2 GTX570. Still some left to do until a perfect fit.



Next update, this Wednesday!

Very cool, I'm just curious as to how those fans perform, they look VERY small.

My requirements aren't very hard, just keep it somewhat cool but no records. Silence over temperatures in this case. And looks over silence.



Part III:I


Some time ago I painted the ports. Do NOT try this at home if you're not 100% sure that you are capable of doing it correctly. It will most likely kill your motherboard. I put down a hard 4 hours of prepwork and masking, and another 4 hours n the paintbooth. Do not spend any less and expect a good result.




Only the Sata-ports stand out, but in a quite charming way.


Stay tuned for part III:II, most likely on friday.

Part IV:I


Placed the backplate on the GPU just to get a preview of what's to come, looks pretty.



Got caught in the moment.



And the real reason that we're here, removed the original +12V lane and GND from the PSU and made new ones directly from the PCB since the original was already split and split again, beyond saving. Sleeved the whole thing to match the rest.



Stay tuned for part IV:II, somewhere near you soon!

Part IV:II

Haha, it's pretty dead in here, eh?


Started working on a midplate/floor to separate the pump/res area from the rest of the case, making it look less cramped.


It took 3 tries and a lot of time, using only hand tools. The powertools just ripped it apart.





This might give you a better idea of what's to come.


As usual, don't be afraid to comment or criticize. Next part will be up soon I hope!
