Looks so good!!! I do really likethis one! Some light inside plz...
Like the res and the side window very much. Not so sure about the side rad. I would have fitted it at the back
Overall very good
That's a nice looking Shuttle, there!
I was just wondering, what did you use for the red paintjob?
Very nice Shuttle mod!
How did the 9800PRO die?
Has to be one of the best mods ive seen. Nice 1 !
Excellent shuttle mod the dual resevoir are so cool , I love it
Nice work the dual res's remind me of a entry in the shuttle case mod comp in german
I'm not a fan of the led feet or having the rad on the side but thats just me
Lovely jobly mate. I really like it.
very sexy mod .. looking really good..
Hmm, i don't like the right side, you better would have mounted the rad on the back...
Ya what happened to the 9800?
Very nice mod, I would agree that it does need green or other color lighting on the inside. The resavours look nice but the tubing looks small for watercooling.
Good Job Overall...
Where did you get your resevoirs? I have a MSI mega 865 and i want to watercool it also. Please give me some advice i love your pc. I also wanted to know how you cut your plexi glass i always have problems trying to get it just right. I am going to have to mount mine on the outside too because of the tight space.
How about you read the thread????
It was stated in post #46!
<back on topic> Looks absolutely great mate!
I think that blue lighting would make it look a bit odd so I say stick with the green and do something out of the ordinary! (not that this project isn't original).
Thanks for the replies guys..
As for the radeon, yes it was mentioned in the update.. just decided to go weird. I think it has something to do with the xice block. It makes realy poor contact with the GPU with the way the card is made. The gpu is like indented inwards. For those of you who have a 9800 you'll know what i mean if you look at it. No matter how hard i tried to screw on the block, i could still move it around.. so maybe? It's different with the 9600 though, fitted a lot better..
As for the colors, I wanted to go for a silver and red theme. Not into blue since almost every computer out there is blue. I was looking for red water but couldn't find anything that did not look gross or pink.
As for the case feet, i guess everyone has their own opinion. I thought about doing something with my aluminum. Maybe i'll change it and update it in the future.
The rad on the back? Due to the small size of the shuttle, it would be impossible unless i moved the power supply. But since I have absolutely no room inside, it would be impossible too. Although i've seen it done before, it is really difficult. For those of you who own a shuttle, look at the back and imagine mounting a 120 mm radiator. Not as easy as it looks i think. Plus it would have to be mounted to the right to avoid blocking the card slots which I didnt really like either. Maybe i'll try it with another project.
The reservoirs were bought from snt-systems.com from alphacool.
I cut the plex with a dremel and just filed it. Not too hard
The red paint job was done with just red spray paint from car shops.
I have just ordered a uv cc so the inside should be nice and bright soon..
thanks for all the comments guys
oh right.. i forgot those things exists until i checked out jacks blue xpc case Oh well, i can't really change that anymore since ive cut out a 120mm hole on my right side :/ Maybe i'll mod another shuttle ;P
man thats one sweet little mod
Excellent work fohkus!
