    Phase cooler is in! (sorry for poor quality pics, only got crappy cameraphone atm)
    [​IMG]

    Hard drive bays were removed and cut so that it could rest on the PSU at the same height, then I installed a dual bay radiator underneath (it fits perfectly, and the gap for the tubing to get to the motherboard is *just right* ) I also spraypainted this black.

    The PSU with all the wires and the radiator make it a tight fit!

    but It just goes in. It really all is fitting together so well, I couldnt have asked for a better fit between all the components if i had them custom made!
    I have murdermod sleeved the cables aswell ;) slick.

    [​IMG]

    The suction line from the unit is also the *perfect* length to reach the CPU aswell :D I cant stress how perfect everything is fitting!


    OMG! where has the motherboard gone!? oh, thats right, I sent it to duniek to get custom blocks done...

    also as a teaser of what is to come, Tribal Overkill Dual res anyone? ;)

    That would have to be one of the most clean and profesional looking phase units I have ever seen, very very cool. Also congrats on the Tribal res, those duel reservoirs are so cool.

    ah man that's crap :(

    hope things work out for you though.....technology tweaking is a past time and real life should always take preference anyway ;)

    ...by the time you get the urge to go back and do this again...prices will be much lower :D

    right!
    changed my mind (again!)
    this project is back up and running!
    harware specs have changed again :p sort of went overkill on the last setup so i downgraded to free up some cash,
    Core specs are now

    3.2Ghz Phenom II 965 BE C3
    Asus Crosshair 3 Motherboard
    XFX HD5850
    4gb Dominator 1333mhz

    and I have just ordered the watercooling!

    white phase unit, white fans, white waterblocks and with white tubing to contrast the black interior....this is going to be amazing!

    updates this week ;)

    Would that be the £400 you have recieved for goods that you haven't sent to people on ChilledPC.co.uk Members market ?

    C'mon Nick, A few people would like some answers to their messages.

    You're online now, a good time to reply ?
