    Just a quick note. I would not put the chiller there, next to the motherboard. The chiller unit will get VERY hot (too hot to touch, instant burn) and will warm up all the air around it, making a very hot PC! There is a reason that they usually put the chillers in a seperate case. I have the same chiller, so I am not just saying this for fun - its a pre-warning. at least give it a metal cover to sheild the mobo, and make sure you have fans at the front and the back of the chiller to expell all the red-hot-air.

    Good luck, and have fun. The chillers are a great project! (see mine which has been converted to run in a water cooling loop in the extreme cooling subforum)

    look at the pictures

    The fans in front and back of the chiller are allready installed and can be seen in the pictures you posted. I also belief that a cover for the chiller will be added otherwise it would destroy the clean look and the paintjob of the case

    yes there will be fans on the side of the case that will exhaust all the hot air, and yes there will be a separation plate that will be made to go between the chiller and rest of the system.

    fans and glasses

    The left fan is secured with screws to the chillers radiator. Get yourself some glasses!
    The process of modding usually includes a mock up, which is made here with the second fan.

    the area in which the phase cooler will be mounted will have one intake fan for the chillers rad and two exhaust fans will be mounted on the side panel to expel any hot air, there will be a exhaust fan on the motherboard tray and on the right side where the HDDs will be located two more exhaust fans, on the left side panel where the rad for one of the liquid cooling systems will be located will have two intake fans mounted to it so in total there will be more exhaust fans then intake fans to achieve the desired negative pressure effect to help insure that any hot air in the system will be removed.
    As mentioned next week I will be getting goodies from AcousticPC one of which will be the fans I will be using in this system so you will be able to see the fans mocked into place with exception of the left side panel, Mountain Mods has not yet produced my custom side panel and wont be able to until the next production run which sadly may take up to 4-6 weeks so I will see it anytime at the end of this month or the next.

    alright a small little update, here is a shot of the copper sheet that I nabbed from my dads warehouse and I can tell you what copper even a sheet like this isnt not cheap.

    [​IMG]

    Now a lot of people have stated their dislike for the looks of the copper phase cooler and have said to cover it up and well I love it and it ties well with my gothic theme and this sheet of copper which I have plenty more of will be used and have the grills cut out as well as other accent parts that will tie everything together so you will have to hang tight and see how that goes ;)

    Alright Alright Update Time

    Today that big beautiful UPS truck pulled into my drive way to deliver this nice and big box.

    [​IMG]

    Where did that box come from you might ask?
    AcousticPC.com

    containing all the lovely sponsored goodies, this box came extremely well packaged everything was perfected wrapped and protected no way of any damage during transit and thats what I like to see.

    Alright here is a shot of all the goodies that came in this box.

    [​IMG]

    Oh ya thats a lot of fans and not just any fans AcousticPC exclusive 3-blade Delta fans, no worries folks these high cfm fans will be on a fan controller to help keep them in line.

    [​IMG]

    Next up is the two rads that will be used for the two liquid cooling loops that will be housed in that case, Swiftech MCR220 man are they pretty.

    [​IMG]

    And finally a single Laing D-5 Variable pump, the second one will ve coming in a week or so.

    [​IMG]

    These are some kickass products and I again would like to thank AcousticPC.com for their sponsorship and on going relationship through out this build.

    Alright folks thats all for now ;)

    I like the DDC pumps better. I've used both and that pump emits a high pitched squeal at full tilt. Although it supports 1/2 inch tubing which the DDC does not without an adapter. It's also much larger than a DDC but you definitely have the room. Also those are swiftech single pass radiators which have a lower fin density than a GTS stealth. The GTS stealth has a much higher fin density, is a double pass radiator, and is also smaller with more heat dissipating capacity. But two radiators are more than enough when not cooling the CPU. Even if you were to put a block on everything in your system and threw in a couple 200watt pelts they would still perform admirably.
