    like the idea of modifying the dark knight to water cooling. Would some springclips be a possible solution to mating the water hose to the coolers heatpipes neatly ?

    remember to leak test again after tidying up the sealant, easy to introduce a weak spot when tidying.

    This log put a smile on my face. It's really nice to see what you can do with just what you have on hand. Great work so far!

    :D

    I failed in water cooling, I accidentally drop a screw on my mobo procy pins.. and 1 pin is completely broken un repairable.. I sold my rads to buy a new mobo.. thats why this project will not be watercooled :(

    :D:thumb:
    Money is expensive :eyebrow::D
    I'll play more on air cooling after i found some cheap mobo nearby. An itx perhaps :D
    :D shoelaces :rock:

    an other small update

    a newbie buy enermax TB 40 and put it on a small case, and end up he cant close the case door. So he cut off some of enermax top fins and copper tube. But the result is ugly as hell.

    I cant resist to buy it when he sell it for only 5$ w/o fans. Well, i still have may beloved yateloon fans so I fix that hsf and here it is.

    Enermax TB40 Carbon edition :)

    I dont know its performance yet, since i dont have one mobo to test it. But i put my faith on yateloon, i believe it wont perform bad.

    It might not work because he's probably cut the top off the heat pipes, and busted the thermal wick effect-stuff-thingy..

    But otherwise, awesome work... real improvement over the original case.
