[Project] CM 690 II - "Mariazinha"

Hi everyone.

I present my modest atempt in modding this case and creating a dual loop system.

My goal is achieve a clean look with most of the wires, pumps and rad's all concealed.

I know the quality of both the modd's and the photos aren't the best but bear with me - I am still learning...

So now the hardware list :

MotherBoard - Asus P67 Pro
Cpu - Core i7 2600k
Ram - Gskill RipjawsX DDR3 1600Mhz 4GB - CL7
Gpu - EVGA 580 SC
HD - SSD OCZ Vertex 3 - 60GB
Storage - Samsung 250 x2 (raid 0)

Watercooling list:

XSPC RS240 x2
Swiftech MCP350 x2
Swiftech Apogee XT
EK FC580 GTX - Nickel
Tubing - PrimoChill 5/8 Clear
Conectors by BitsPower

This Project will be called Mariazinha.

So now on with this build.



MotherBoard Fully Dressed



GPU Dressed



Case all naked



I/O Shield Painted and Placed, PSU threaded for new screws and Lian Li Aero Slots



New Vertical Plate with SSD Mount. This piece is made in acrylic and with vinyl aplied.



Lower Section separation plate with rad and connections



In Place



Another View



Overall View of the work so far (Still a long way to goooooooooo). Just did a quick mock up for you guys to see what's coming. Everything will sit flush when it's finished.

Hope you enjoy!

..Update..

HD cage back in place after a litle grinding and paiting.

Did a almost definitive mock up with the hardware to test the loops.









Still not happy with cpu loop so i'll change the block so that the tubes are paralel





View of the pump area (dont mind the double sided tape it is only temporary)







Test mock up for the backplate. Still working on the design. In the end this will be nickel plated.

Time for sleeving xD

Hope you enjoy

This is looking good. I'd love to do the same thing to my 690 but don't have the time or money! Keep up the good work!

Good morning everyone.

As promissed here is the update.

I have to warn there are a lot of pics ^^ This is a build where i try to learn and develop my modding skills as well as my photografy skills.

Hope it comes out well!

Let's begin with the new acrylic pieces. After the mock up's i did some tweeks and with the final dimensions here is the result





























(here u can see i had to cut 2 of the pass trough because there wasnt enough clearance. AS these are nickel plated they were extremelly dificullt to get a acceptable colour. A lot of sanding went here....)



(close up of the joint as requested by PB)



(here a little surprise - first mock up)





(Finished :P)



(will look extremelly cool)



(aquaero 5 LT)





(mounted in the underside of HDD cage)



Res with temp sensors







Top Panel mounted



Remember this?



Flipped







(and here is where it goes. It covers the two tube holes just perfectly)

And now a few random shots of the work done.









(same photo with lighter ilumination)

I will post the full detail of this work once the new update comes out. For now it's only a little teaser.

Hope you enjoy

Thanks to all who have comented.

Just a little teaser of the work being done.

It is very hard to connect everything in such a tight space.

Hopefully today the loops will be finished.

Cheers.

Wow, love how clean and elegant this is :-) Definitely one of my favourite case mods on here at the moment.
