    Hey guys. I have been planning a build in a Haf-X case a got recently and it will get the name "Autobot Bumblebee"
    I will be getting a little help from a 72 year old plumbing expert on the loop itself. I haven't planned everything just yet but this will hopefully be ready this summer depending on sponsors and cash.

    My friend over at DLESOV TECH helped me with visualizing the inside with all of the planned components installed. Things may change over time but these are the planned components and hardware so far:

    Storage: External
    GPU's: 2x EVGA GTX 670 Cheesecake
    Case: Cooler Master Haf-X
    PSU: Cooler Master Silent Pro M2 850W

    Watercooling:
    CPU block: EK-Supremacy - Nickel - Plexi
    GPU blocks: EK-FC680 GTX - Acetal+EN Nickel
    Rad 1: Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 360
    Fans: *Not decided*
    Rad 2: Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 360mm
    Fans: *Not decided*
    Pump: Laing D5 with matt black mod kit
    Reservoir: Bitspower 250 upgrade kit / black mod pump top

    Did a little work on the front of the case and as you can see I have already made some mistakes. The spinning thing on the dremel accidentally scrubbed against a little part where the front panel PCB with USBs and all that used to be. The plan is to get some fighter pilot switches from mnpctech to turn on and off the LEDs. Also I'm gonna get some Lamptron vandal switches for the power and reset :)

    The front is still a little undecided but I plan on trying one thing first and if that looks awful I have a different plan.

    Thanks mate :)

    It appears that bit-tech has decided I'm using cheesecake GPUs in my build o_O

    Do I need to write F*T*W instead of Cheesecake ?

    Had some steel cut down for me and fitted it in the floor with some carbon vinyl from IceMods. Had to drill most of the rivets out...

    Thanks man :)

    Cooler Master sent me an amazing power supply. I sleeved all the cables and made some of them a little shorter...

    Added something to prevent vibration from the PSU

    Bumblebee seems to like it :)

    There's a word filter on this forum which swaps ft­w for cheesecake.

    Sorry for the delay everyone but as you know, life is expensive and so is modding :) I ordered a 140mm Akasa Viper fan from highflow.nl for the back of the case and some crystal link fittings and tubes just to show to the plumber that's doing the loop with me what he's working with :)

    I also ordered some case feet from mnpctech a few days ago and they should arrive very soon.

    Here's the package from highflow

    Testing the crystal link. I thought I'd never trust them but damn they are strong...
    [​IMG]

    And finally the fan fitted in the back
    [​IMG]

    I have to say though I would not recommend these fans unless you have a fan controller. They are very silent at 600 rpm but very very loud at 1600 rpm BUT the airflow is just amazing... I can imagine if you have a thick rad and these fans in push/pull, your temps would be awesome. I am gonna use the 120mm ones on the rads in this build :)

    I hope there will be an update soon...

    This is a long overdue update. The case feet got lost in the mail so I just re-used the ones from my Sk1ds since they are exactly the same... I had to get some new screws and bolts for them though but they only had those huge washers so I used some yellow di-noc from http://www.icemodz.com/


    These are the case feet from my Sk1ds...

    And finally the feet are on. The left one in the front is a little off but that can be fixed :)
