    Have only just looked back at this since it was still on 1 page. It is looking great. Will keep an eye on this to see how it goes.

    Good work

    hey,
    pathetic micro update so i wont bother changing the main title today....

    I've been onto Duniek (im sure most of you know him, if you dont he's the guy that makes custom waterblocks) about a NB/Chipset/Mosfet waterblock for the board, as it seems unlikely that any retail ones will be made. To do this i had to remove the stock heatsinks and take some pics so he could gauge how to do it, so heres some naked board pr0n.... and i replaced the stock thermal paste with some MX-2, dropped nb heatsink temps about 5 degrees

    Also thinking about the front, What do we reckon to this? 2 Alphacool displays, the custom fan controller and a Drive Bezel, and four Lian Li intake thingys. all white obv. opinions please :) I know its a poor photoshop but im in a rush!

    Phase cooler complete, just gotta pay tomorrow and wait for it to be shipped :) praying to all the Gods i can think of that it fits the case without too much modding! I have a backup plan if it dosent.

    Oh man, phase is awesome.

    That LiLi case is absolutely gorgeous as well, white exterior and powder coated black interior... Mmm...

    Definitely go for the 2 displays and grilled bays, that is a classy look. :D

    okay I got one of the alphacool LCD's to try out. I only got one becuase they are pretty expensive and I didnt want to buy them just to figure out they were garbage. (however they really are not!) they look excellent and are really easy to set up. plus the front fascia comes off easy so i can mod it.
    anyways, I have done a video to demonstrate how I have set it up - Its on a retro theme. The audio was supposed to be Can't Stop By RHCP but they have disabled it :(

    enjoy! EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vVil51fUYg

    p.s still waiting on the slovenian postman to arrive with the phase unit :(

    Hey guys, just a quick status update on the project. and a couple of plans:

    Natwest are muppets so they didnt send my payment to LittleDevil so there are further delays there >: ( So i have to go re-do it.

    I'm going to send the motherboard to Duniek (he has his own CNC setup) so he can fit it with custom waterblocks :) I'd do it myself and send him the measurements but I dont want to screw up, and he says if he gets it he can maybe do a full cover block :D

    I'm going to be replacing all the fans with black and white Fractal Design fans from QuietPC.


    and @ LT BEECH: There are everest plugins for the temperature, and I cheated and just set up a screen that said "system stable" for that bit :p
