Taigart has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Compact White Tiger

Hello,

maybe you could remember me for this build http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=292025 where I watercooled a 16Wx38Hx42L case!

CHALLENGE :
Try to watercool an ITX case of 11Wx30Wx42L dimension with SAME components performance of an ATX one!!!

OBJECTIVE:
Watercooling the build AND reach 4.5Ghz for the processor + get a nice overclock on the gpu.


To accomplish my objective I will mod an Aerocool CS-101, a case not designed for a full size GPU :



After long time thinking this is one possible solution
(EDIT I won't use this solution, the radiators are too tall, it's aesthetically horrible to see, moreover two m160 add 1kg of weigth to the build) :

Components:

CPU: INTEL i5 6600K
MOBO: ASUS z170i pro gaming
GPU: EVGA 160GTX mini
RAM: GEIL super luce frost white
SSD: SAMSUNG 512 M.2 Evo
POWER SUPPLY: CORSAIR SF450

Watercooling components:

WB CPU: EKWB supremacy mx
WB GPU: XSPC raystorm gpu
RAD: 1x160 HWLAB nemesis M160GTX
FAN: ALSEYE 4x80mm
PUMP/RESERVOIR: SWIFTECH mcp35x pump/reservoir combo
LIQUID: NANOXIA coolforce pure n power
RIGID TUBE:
FITTINGS:
REHOBUS: Bitfenix Recon White

To Do:

1) Mod the Asus Card from red/black to white/black
2) Mod the power supply in white

3) Makes the holes all for the radiator and the GPU----->DONE
4) Create a window in the left side panel of the case ------>DONE
5) Paint all the case in White---------> DONE

6) Draw a tiger on the right side panel
7) Buy Watercooling components -----> DONE
8) Mod The radiator in white ------>DONE

9) Cut the Bitfenix Recon to make it fit in the DVD driver hole
10) Create a little powerful build


Let's go

So RAM, PSU and FANS arrived yesterday!

About the FANS: it's the first time for me that I bought the ALSEYE case fans and THEY LOOK AMAZING!



The ALSEYE fans are made with a "crab leg" design that give them 15% increased airflow and 5% less noise.



The high quality materials are pretty solid, the rubber gasket is well designed too: it absorbs the vibration and is not too thick, making it possible to easily install the fans for exemple on a radiator.



The package is sold with the classic mounting screws and anti-vibration screws! The last one are used to reduce ever more the noise ( this package remember me the same of the Noctua one ).
The fans speed is up to 2000RPM with a declared 28.35CFM and 26.37dB.

I pushed the fan up to 2200RPM and the measured CFM was effectively of 31CFM with a maximum dB noise peak of 30dB.

Is it possible to buy them here: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/S80-c...306401951.html
at the price of approximately 9 dollars or 8 euro.

In my opinion the build quality, the aesthetic and the performance of these fans makes them a very good product for its price

For more info here is ALSEYE official site: http://www.alseyecorp.com/

Here the Geil RAM



And the Corsair SF450

So the project is not dead, secretly I'm continuing my mod slowly

- I cut the holes fors fans, gpu and side panel window
- I painted in white the case and create the window in the side panel
- I painted the hardware lab radiator in white.

Next step:

- add "foots" to the case
- create the holes to mount the reservoir
- cut the Bitfenix Recon to make it fit in the DVD driver hole
- add the glass to the window
- still lot of work ...

Some pics:

Guuuys time for big update!!!!

Here is the motherboard customized in black and white with barrow waterblock:



This is the hole necessary to host the Bitfenix Recon:



Added some foot to help the installation of the graphic card:



Added the tiger on the side panel:



NOW: this is the test build with flexible tubing ONLY to test if one 2x80 radiator can actually makes me reach the performance that I wanted.




The result are almost as expected!

ONE TINY HWLAB RADIATOR CAN actually cool a gtx 1060 OC@ +175core and +500Mhz memory +
a i5 6600 @ 4.4ghz!!!!

CG temp are @42max
CPU temp are @65max

I'm very proud of my build, I can finally show to the world that you don't need million radiators but just enough for your power.

One pic with rigid tubing/fittings before final pics! (I can switch between light off/on )
