Corsair 600T Mjölnir - 22/12/2012 - New Water Cooler!

Welcome to my project Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor, god of Norse mythology and the protagonist of the film "The Avengers."

In this project we intend to present a visual "unique" to the Corsair 600T, using several techniques for their modification and optimization.

First, I'll post some pictures of the current state of the case with the hardware and also a video of the first modification of the Corsair 600T for installation optimized for airflow case with Corsair H100 watercooler.













































This window will be modified to suit the project:







I hope you enjoyed, news will come soon and a video (in portuguese) showing how the cuts.

Sweet mate And I love the name, being Icelandic and my religion is Asatru (Ásatrú) Mjölnir, the hammer of Þór is in my religion. But the modding is great

And today we have a "partial news".

I removed all the stickers on my ASUS HD7970 DCII and would start making some changes, but I ended up having some setbacks with some chemicals that I would use and modification ended up getting only half, the following pictures:

















I hope you enjoyed and I will bring more news soon.

Thanks to all who follow.

I had a lot of work sanding the cover of VGA to stay with this aspect.

Glad you enjoyed

Actually it was grinding, I just forgot to say, I used a 600 grit sandpaper and calmly and effort could leave the video card with this aspect "frayed"

I hope to do a good job in this modification and leave the project with a "unique" style

I hope you all enjoyed the result

I made a video tutorial on how to polish metals:



Sorry for my bad english.

This video is quite simple, I tried to be as simple and direct as possible.

What about the side, as I said before, I made the changes, first polishing:





And then I varnish to maintain the state of the glossy side:













The new H100 arrived today, but it arrived with a leak and rust on the block:







Then modification of the H100 may take a while, today I am going to contact the RMA from Corsair to see how I will proceed.

Thanks to everyone that came.

After being "trolled" by Corsair, the H100 was for the RMA took 35 days to get it back (it was sent 28 days after being received by Corsair and more 7 days to be delivered), let the news:







I installed a custom WC and now the look was much more in keeping with the project.

Already enjoying, wish a Merry Christmas to all who follow the project!

Thank you all!
