    Well everyone I got the motherboard in today ^_^

    [​IMG]

    So the first thing I did after staring at it for a while was to remove that almost useless north bridge heatsink and install the Noctua NC-6 heatsink.

    Oh isnt is pretty ^_^

    The Swiftech H20-120 Compact Water Cooling Kit arrived today ^_^

    I must say the packaging that it came in is pretty nice and man they really meant it when they said compact.

    [​IMG]

    Here is everything that came inside the box

    [​IMG]

    Close up of the pump/block combo and back plate.

    The back plate installed on the motherboard

    [​IMG]

    And here is the Block installed on the motherboard

    Now as for the Radiator, well at first I thought I was going to have to mount the Rad on the outside of the case and the fan on the inside of the case but after checking it out, its so compact that I will be able to mod it so that the fan and rad will be installed inside of the system and all that will probably happen tomorrow. ^_^

    okay I know I said I would start cuttin tomorrow but ya didnt want to wait, alright I cut away the hardrive location on the cage to make room for the fan and rad.

    Here is a shot of the fan and rad mocked in place.

    [​IMG]

    and yes there is enough room to fit a 2900XT.... BARELY ^_^

    oh and here is a shot of showing how tight of a fit it is for the fan/rad.

    [​IMG]

    Alrighty tomorrow I will start finalizing and installing the water cooling system.

    Alright well this morning I did a quick mock up of how the water cooling system will be installed in this system to try and maintain as best of air flow as possible and still keep it clean looking.

    oh and if any of you are curious with out my designs and changes Im modding it in such a way so that I can achieve and maintain its modular design and being able to remove all the parts without anything conflicting, so I have been doing a lot of cutting a trimming like the modular part that hold the optical drives, that drops down and slides forward, I had to cut a channel so that it will still drop down and slide forward past the rad and fan thats on the side.

    I still have to do some clean up work but you get the idea :)

    It's looking quite good so far! Very interested in how you do it all. I have a SFF case to mod and add watercooling sometime in the next few months. Looking forward to more. ;)

    I've moved this thread to Project Logs from Modding, since modding has been underway for a while now.

    Mod on :dremel: .
