I'm finally getting my feet wet, watercooling, case modding. Having lurked around the forums for the last 4 odd years and most of the time, well who am I kidding all of the time, feeling flabbergasted by the skill and creativity on display, I want to do this right. So I'm going to do my best at a build log here and I'm looking forward to your feedback and suggestions. So without further ado, so begin's project Little Brother: If you haven't guessed it yet, I'm building into a Cosair 250D. But considering what I'd like to do with it, the dark and stormy is an apt way to begin. So here's the plan, it's simple really it only has(had) two steps 1.) Sell old gaming consoles + games 2.) Build Itx build to replace both the blu-ray/living room gaming capability that I had in the consoles and the desktop gaming capability that I have in my current PC (it happens to live in the monstrosity that is NZXT Phantom). Step 1 went swimmingly. step 2 has, in not unexpected fashion, taken on life and become much larger than I originally anticipated. Now I could tell you a whole yarn about how things went from a simple down size to a major project, but I'll keep things short: I've always wanted to watercool a computer (and I mean properly so not via a AIO option), I've always wanted to mod a case, and I finally have the opportunity to do both without spending unreasonable amounts of money. And step 2 has become: Build an Itx computer with a custom water cooling loop, cpu + gpu + 2 rads, into the 250D without removing the 5.25" drive as I'll need that for the blu-ray player that must be a part of this build. Ambitious? Well that's why it started with a drink.
