I love custom blocks of any kind
Excellent work. Coating in leather is an awesome idea. If I ever did it, I would put a thin layer of foam under there to add some body to it. Looks amazing though.
I did the Foam layer... but it was too chubby So i removed it.
I think it would have been interesting to see dual loops in this tiny monster.
The waterblock looks great!
Subbed - Just GOTTA follow this one!
Too bad those fans won't fit inside the top of the case - I'm a sucker for "All inside the case" mods, but I guess with this small case there simply wasn't room.
Excellent job on the custom waterblock - looking forward to seeing the efficiency of it.
Neato, Love your custom waterblock and a suggestion, maybe get your tubes white similar to the PURE mod so it matches your sleeving.
You watercooled an ITX? Inconceivable!
Oh man my internet just took a beating on page two but damn, it was worth it!
Got my vote for sure!
An Atom!!!!!!!! I thought those things took up 8W for a reason? How much do you plan to try and OC this thing?
anyways, insane mod dude
This is an awesome mod, I'm especially impressed with the custom waterblock making.
It's almost a shame you are using an atom, and not one of these:
Oh, and i also support the idea of using white tubing.
Hi there mate!
So does the ioncito want to show us any updates? XD
I hope you managed to put some order in that tubing
Your mod looks sweet so far, can't wait to see what it's like finished.
The custom waterblock; It looks like the two inlets and outlets line up more with the outside channels. Does the channel in the middle have enough flow?
NEED MOAR MODDING PICZ!
Sorry, I´ve been busy. Thanks for all your comments.
Well, I had to hurry "finishing" this mod to take it to a lanparty/mod contest (BTW got 1st place... won an i5 750).
I don't have better pics than these right now:
But I promess to take some good pics of this "beta version" of the case.
Atom 230 ocwr:
I need some sleep now...
congrats on the win. love the end result. Good job
Did you drill the center of the blocks out from the ends and plug them?(they look like solid square stock) How did you get the channels for the water to flow through? Is that silicone or just a thread lube that you put on the fittings? Sorry ment to quote the other pictures too.
Some pics of the "beta" case at the lanparty:
Next step, gonna change the motherboard for a dual-core version, build a better waterblock, white tubbing and add a Pico Projector to the case.
Those coming improvements sound great - I have to say that I'm not a big fan of the fittings, you've chosen. They look too much like fittings for household water installations, sorry... and the manifold blocks also look quite homemade (no pun intended). Maybe a coat of white color would suit them, alongside the white tubing you plan to use? Also, support the PSU with something. It's hanging a bit?
Other than that: great build. Continue! Just a few things will make this build much more impressive.
