    Just placed an order yesterday for some Bitspower fittings but I will have to wait some time since there are some fittings out of stock...

    The fans that I will use for this build are already shipped!

    Thanks to Atlas informática and NZXT

    13 x NZXT FX120LB

    [​IMG]

    2 x NZXT FX140LB

    [​IMG]

    Will need to order 3 x Power Adjust 2 to be able to control them with Aquaero 5 XT.
    I think Aquaero 5 XT supports up to 1.5 A per channel and the radiator fans use about 0.35 A at full speed that makes 1.4 A but still wanted to have some headroom...

    I've also updated the first post with all the hardware I will use (still thinking of which PSU :))

    So a little update (pictures really...)
    I've spend the day checking online stores and filling shopping carts :D

    The part that I enjoy the most is when you have to plan all the fittings you thinkg you are going to need... you need to study to learn all the fittings available!

    I just ordered some more Bitspower fittings, but just checked what I have in stock at home... and here are the picutres

    Compression Fitting 19/13 - Matt Black
    [​IMG]

    45º Adaptaer + Compression Fitting
    [​IMG]

    "Quick Disconnect" from Bitspower and male-to-male adapter
    [​IMG]

    This is a random scene from a bitspower pr0n site :hehe:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    I will change all the green O-ring to black ones, just ordered some replacements!
    I'm now witing for a lot of bitspower stop fittings and some 90º adapters plus some couplers and "pass through" fittings...

    Next package should have NZXT Fans :clap:

    I think I have to invest In a new camera (using Sony DSC-R1, love it but...)
    Need reflex camera so I can use some sexy macro-lens with it! :idea:

    Also need to get some "portable" lights so I can create better light for pictures!

    Overkill is underrated :naughty:
    The case measures about 70cm height, 23cm wide and 65cm from front to back!
    I also thought that my Lian Li was big btw...
    Thanks for following, hope you like the end result :)

    Case is great, and I know that "little" is false advertising :clap:
    The only "bad thing" are the Torx screws that you have to remove to access the interior but that is something that you won't do on a daily basis once the build is finished :cooldude:

    I think I Will anounce a new sponsor soon so stay tuned :)

    Thanks!
    Yes I know about Maxishines work and also saw his review, he has a beast not a computer!
    I was thinking getting some black wheels aswell like he did, otherwise the case will be very difficult to handle...

    Last night I did some work on the NZXT fans, I will update the post later to show some of the progress :)

    Well I have just found a case to think off when I build my next case.

    This will be watched closely to see how this pan's out.

    Thanks! More updates coming...

    Good night everyone, here you have some updates, I've been working on the NZXT fans

    [​IMG]

    The goal is to remove the speed controler and the NZXT sleeving...

    [​IMG]

    Very nice sleeving :)

    [​IMG]

    As you can see the fan speed controler allows you to select between Less - Moar - Hot.... :waah::waah:

    [​IMG]

    Ok so we get rid of the sticker so we can start working.
    What we want to do is remove the 3 cables on the right side and then solder all the pins remaining together. Doing so the fan will always stay at full speed.
    Aquaero 5 will take control of all the computer fans :D

    [​IMG]

    Sleeving and speed controller out!

    [​IMG]

    All this work was possible because of a good friend of mine. Thanks "Lutro0"!

    Just finished 5 fans out of 15... need to keep working :lol:

    Once I finish with all the fans I will have to wait to resleeve them with MDPC and maybe adjust the cable length :)
