    Yeah the case is amazing and I keep changing my mind about my case for my next build, currently have 4 in mind.

    The little devil case which is the one used in this mod

    The Coolermaster Cosmos 2

    The Silverstone TJ11

    And last I think it's called the XZPC HS1 Cube, as that will take the 5x 360mm rad's I am potentially going to use for my next build, dependant on what the temp's are like on the hardware I buy.

    Gracias a todos los sponsors por colaborar en el proyecto.
    Many thanks to all the sponsors for the support given to this project




    I'm going to have 3 x 480 Rads for sure, and LGA 2011 processor for sure... everything else I'm still deciding, can't reveal everything right :D

    I love the Little Devil just bare in mind that there are like 100 screws all around and open/close the case is the worst part, everything else is great :)

    Thanks my friend, will try to make it worth the visits ;)

    I've been busy these days with a lot of planing show I'm just going to show you my cardboard 480 rads :clap::clap:

    I've been planing the tube routing with all the elements inside but since I didn't have the rads I needed to see the whole picture and I just realized that It will be hard to find a proper place to install the valve (and make it look nice). May end up using a piece of tubing with a stop fitting at the end :waah:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    2 x Coolgate 480 Rads will be placed down there, as you can see they fit great but not much space to link them together + fans + valve etc...
    A third radiator will be placed at top.

    I like the Coolgate because of the 4 threads and how they are mounted, gives me a lot of mounting options... a picture to show you what I'm talking about.

    What do you guys think? :rock:

    Surely that many radiators esp size wise isnt going to make any much big of a difference once you've reached your ambient water temp.

    Like the difference will be around 5 degrees or so... ?

    Lovely case though...F!!!!!

    I know when I do my build I will be using around 5 360mm rad's.

    1 for the cpu

    1 for each graphic's card

    Possibly 1 for the motherboard dependant on if the board's need cooling that are around when I do mine.

    That may be what the OP is planning on 1 for graphic's, 1 for cpu and 1 for mobo.

    Yes i know what you mean but overkill is good haha.
    Also I will be runing 3 cards and probably ram blocks aswell..
    Im having trouble deciding which mobo to buy that has block available.
    I dont want rog or gigabyte and asrock, msi and others dont have blocks available makes me feel baaaad :-(

    What cpu are you going to be running in it?

    There are places that sell the board's pre watercooled so you don't void the warranty by removing the heatsink's.

    You could also go for any board and paint the waterblock's to match the colour scheme you are going for.

    I know the one that I will be going for eventually will match the colour scheme anyway as it's going to be based around a Asus ROG board, which will be Red & Black.

    Wires anyone?

    [​IMG]

    Artic Silver 5... the best :)

    [​IMG]

    20mm drill bit so I can destroy the Little Devil easier

    More stuff coming soon... hopefully!

    I've found that the Arctic MX-3 stuff gave me better temp's than the Arctic Silver 5 since I switched.

    Even tried it on my last pc, and found something rather strange which I cannot for the life of me explain but when I put the Artic Silver 5 on my 2600K the pc would not boot but I switched back to the MX-3 stuff and the pc booted.

    Still looking very good this build though and cannot wait for it to be finished.

    Hey Damien, was tempted by these myself - Aquatuning.co.uk have the HD at £68 and the LE for £90... very pretty but very pricey

    Really strange to see a computer not booting because of the AS5!
    Will take care thanks for saying :thumb:

    I need your help now... I'm trying to find a pattern to sleeve my 24 pin cables and this is what I ended up with (I did other combinations but not liking them much)
    Any other suggestions? I've added white but doesn't look good, I think big change of colours hehe

    [​IMG]

    I personally like the first one because of non-symetrical style and it looks more black than gold but not sure :S

    Yeah me and my dad both couldn't figure out why it wouldn't boot when I used the AS5 but my dad's pc did boot fine and has been working fine since.

    As for the pattern to be honest, it will be which ever you think look's best as it's your pc and you will be looking at it.

    For me I would use the 2nd one as I don't like thing's like that not looking symetrical, simply because I would prefer it to look the same all the way through.

    As I say it's your pc so it's your choice really.

    But keep it up I cannot wait to see this all finished (No Rush)

    I'm thinking along the lines of the first, but put the 3 gold next to each other with out the space?

    So looking top down:
    BGGGBBBBBBGB
    BGBBBBBBGGGB

    Just a thought :) I don't really like the every other of the last one myself either.

    Thanks damien, I'm really happy to know that people is waiting for my updates and following the work. Thank you for the support! :thumb:

    Hello Mosquito, I've tried your combo and then I used the concept to make some other concepts... here we go

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    This one is following 2 different patterns depending on the front or the back of the connector... I'm very happy with the result, and you?

    [​IMG]

    This one maybe? (Mosquito's suggestion!)

    [​IMG]

    And finally and much cleaner version of old concept

    That's good and bad lol :thumb:

    I think I will wait for the hardware to be here and then decide which one looks better since it's getting very hard to get a vote on one of them... :)

    I like the 1st and 2nd more the 2nd though.

    Again though as it's your pc I would say go with whichever you prefer.
