    Though usually I don't like water cooled pc, your project is simply amazing :D !

    I really like the black and white theme with a touch of red, then, I love ITX size :rock:...

    Who doesn't? :hehe:

    You got that right, but the order is res-pump-floor-gpu-floor-floor-120rad-cpu-140rad-floor-res. :)

    Thanks!


    Thank you! :)


    Part V

    I'm back after a short break, let's continue!

    Fitting of the midplate and the GPU together, the midplate is a bit off centre by the GPU's unsupported weight, making the crystal link a bit tilted.

    The GPU block had its first encounter with the dremel, still a long way to go for a perfect fit.

    See you guys soon!

    This is a fantastic project. Great inspiration for someone that wants to make a m-ITX water cooling build after a build in a Phantom! It's perfect!

    That is a very tight fit! I really like the midplate idea!

    Looks very good, but I'm wondering if you will get enough cooling for it.

    Thank you for the sub! :)

    Thank you, sir!

    It's been a long time now, did you get around to making it? Cheers! :)

    Thank you!

    To be honest, I don't know. I think it comes down to the overclocking. I did some calculations and it seems to work out, I had another set of eyes on it and he agreed but I really don't know until it's up an running.

    Sorry for the really late answer, but the height is 31,5 cm.

    Hopefully I can get enough out of it, but we'll see!


    Part VI

    It's been a loooong time since I last stepped into this thread, that plus a midset break or what ever you would wan't to call it, for school I'm back to finish what I've started.

    As she sits!

    Here's where I will put a 20mm fan.

    Or a fillport!

    Got myself a pair of wedding rings for that sweetheart.

    Kind of tight, hopefully it will do.

    Halfway finished with the front radiator mount.

    Threw the radiator on there, starting to look like something.

    Again, starting to look right!

    The rear, lots of work to do here still.

    It's not as bad as it looks to be, one set of wires are not yet sleeved, and the others need a good stretch, but it will look better once the PSU-shroud is on.

    Test mounting!

    What do we think?

    No longer a 460!

    Lowered the entire reservoir about 5mm, through the floor.

    Hopefully I'll be back really soon to update you guys on progress.

    Typing this with only one hand, kind of got the other one stuck. :-D

    Wow, thank you so much!

    Just because you two are so kind and welcoming, you get another one!



    Part VII

    I got an Aquaero as some sort of "main central" of all the mechanical components. But it doesn't fit! Just 1mm to tall, shouldn't be a hard fix though.

    Also mounted a water temperature gauge/reader to utilize more of the Aquaero. Since last time the rad support in the front was painted, pump wire lengthened, the fan wires resoldered and shortened, as well as shortening the probe wires and USB. Don't worry, all connectors will be painted.

    Oh, and I also made some splitters for the molex lines, and finished off the sata-power. It still needs some fine tuning though, as you can tell.

    I'm glad you like it, Zen!

    I'm not sure I want to know! Haha! :-D

    Thank you, Mankz!

    It's nice to be back. It's hard to get it the way I want to, and it's so time consuming because of the space, or rather the lack of it. Thank you as always, Craig!

    Part VIII

    Windowtime! Also got working a bit more on the two-tone paint.

    Marked areas will need some love.

    And some nicer shots, because I finally found some time for it.

    It came out pretty good in my opinion.
