Tundra EVO TJ07- Nope not dead!

This is my first all out mod
Im baseing this on an old beat up tj-07 that i got for the sole purpose of modding it. Im fitting a 360rad in the front drivebays, and a 480 in the "basement" the theme will be black and white with some aluminium bits. I plan to make a custom front from the top panel of my old corsair 500r
Now first things first I did was to cut the midplate
a few other cuts for cabels

then i cut the upper supportrail in two

the cut bits...

the moment of truth


I cut some brackes from angeled alu

Inside the case i used these wierd nuts

Thats it for now next is the hardware and the loop

The hardware Update!
Since Iím fitting this system with this insane amount of radiators you must be thinking what kind of powerhouse is this going to be, well it isnít the system is just my rig.
Amd Phenom 955BE
Asus Sabertooh 990FX
8gb Corsair Vengeance LP 1600mhz
Silverstone TJ-07
Coolermaster Silent Pro Gold 600W
WD Blue 500GB
Msi HD 6950 2gb @ Asus Hd 6970
Nzxt White Cable Extensions

Cooling :
XSPC Raystorm
EK FC6970
Swiftech MCP35X and res for MCP35X
EK fittings
Clearflex tubing
3 Fractal design 120mm fans
4 Bitfenix Spectre Pro 120mm fans
2 Arctic Cooling F9 PWM 92mm fans
The business end of the rig all together

Loving the removable motherboard tray it made fitting the front rad easy and building the rig. Now the loop



The part that you canít see is pump and res as it is in the basement next to the PSU
Overall picture

Next midplate (if I can find white acrylic) and frontpanel

Okay so I didnít make the midplate instead I made a cover, for the drive bays:
Measuring
cut
after some sanding and filing... perfect fit
Then I drilled holes to fit the nuts
After that remove the panel again
Then after sanding it with some 60 grit lengthwise, on both sides. I reinstalled it and admired it

I will be using this lovely mayhems coolant next as I fill the loop

Its full and leaktested for the past 12 hours

That is if for now.

Its Alive!

postponed the first boot 3 days after my Raystom leaked during the weekend. so i had to pull it a part and check the o-ring, only to find that it did not seal at one of the bolts. First boot this morning without any problems. I overclocked it to 4.1ghz and temps are as follows
CPU
Idle: 28C
load:46C
GPU
Idle: 34C
Load:46c

I still have to make a midplate and front drivebay cover, HDD mount, and clean up all the cabels in the basement.

Nice build im using the same coolant and have got a little color change in mine but i do like your placement of the rad in the front like how you've used the 2.5 bay to your advantage , what are you going to use to cover the bay

Small update on the front panel
Iím using the top mesh of my Corsair 500R to make the bay cover. First I removed the plastic frame from inside the panel itís just held on with these ďtabsĒ



Volia

Then I straightened all the tabs

Iím reusing the dust filter thou it is not going to have any effect on dust as Iím leaving the hole in the roof open . Here first without it. And the with it


Now all I need is to cut it to fit. And figure out how to mount it so that it looks clean.

more OC

So I can`t find white acrylic that I can justify the cost of buying.
So Iíve been playing with overclocking the 955 and the 6950@6970bios

I know I can get both higher and still have sufficient cooling but I donít have the nerve or skill to do so Ė AMD 955 guru needed!

No real update yet just me having no motivation. + superpi32m is super addicting so I have spent all week pushing insane volts(1.65v) to try and get 1 core over 4.6Ghz stable. I hope to get the front panel done today. Iíve been toying around with the idea of having 2 fans pulling hot air out the top of the case. Iím using the old fans from my 500r and I still have 4 left, so 2 pulling air out the top of the case and adding 2 to pull air out the basement. However to do so I will need to create shrouds for the basement, a midplate and a mount for the 2 top fans.
All feedback is welcome

YES! I finally got the front panel done and in place. First masking and measuring

I forgot to take pictures of the jigsaw action but here is the final piece

I mounted it using these tabs just bent 90degrees and then screwing the drivebays in behind the tabs.

I initially was going to make this piece in plexi but, I didnít think that it would be strong enough so alu it was.
Again masking and measuring

Drilling the pilot holes

And then the cordless ran out of power, so currently Iím waiting for it to recharge.

Why is it I don't ever get tired of TJ07 Builds? Oh, that's right, because it's a sick case!

Looking good! Awaiting more updates.

I know itīs been a long time since the last update but I have made progress. The first thing was that my tubing was turning gray, so I drained the loop of Mayhems Pastel


and refilled it with deionised water, the little amount left of pastel in the rads means that I now have white water, my guess is that im running 20ml pastel in 2000ml h2o...... that wonít discolour my tubing. I got myself another mini display port to dvi

So now I can use all my monitors. I love it! I also got a Steelseries H7 headset

While the loop was empty I had time to take some pictures of my gpu


A friend of mine pointed out that the one thing that didnít fit my theme was the cobber on the gpu block so I gave it a layer of white vinyl.

Here is the best macro shot I could get of the back of the gpu

I still need to figure out a proper way of mounting my hdd, as this is not pretty or safe

Now when I start sleeving I have to clean up this mess

That is it for now; I hope that you can see that i have tried to get better pictures.
All feedback is appreciated!

I see the 1 star dickheads have been at it again. Pay no attention progress is looking really good so far especially for a first proper mod. Like how you're already paying attention to the little details like the colour of the block. Can't wait to see how this turns out.
