    What were your impressions of the quality of the Koolance Pump / Res / Controller combo and any other Koolance parts? I am thinking of building a water cooled PC with them. How well do they justify the high price?

    I will be watching this build. Keep up the great work. ;)

    First of all .. my own site and so the L3p d3sk pictures are back online :)
    Thanks for all the help Bo and tweakers.net crew !

    And received some material !
    I'm very happy with it, no i can also measure some more.
    You can´t see it very well on photo´s but it´s very narrow all inside.
    The Gpu´s are 29.5cm

    Didn't have a mouse yet for this build so ordered this one from the asus shop.
    Think it'll look good next to it :)

    And the the very nice package from EKWB !
    Also got the raincoat, no-one wanted it there, but since im from Holland ... :p

    Going to use the EK Top/Res instead of the Koolance top, this cause of the limited space i have.
    The Koolance heatsink will remain.

    Thanks Gregor and EKWB !

    Used the hardware from the CM compo to fit some more in.
    As you can see, not much space.

    Small update.

    Got some good news from Asus.
    Just 2 weeks before the hardware will arrive !
    Can't wait :p

    I've been talking a lot to Kier lately.
    We also exchange a lot of hardware and WC products.
    Also we ordered @ MDPC-x together, told him i didn't have much time the coming 3 weeks. So he said, send me the PSU with the rest, i'm bored. (Before he started his TJ11 project)

    So ... Made by Kier :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One week later this was on my table :)

    Also extra sleeve for the sata cables and some mounting stuff, the rest will follow.

    [​IMG]

    Richard .. thanks a lot my friend, no one who can do this faster and better :)

    And the second order @ Highflow.

    [​IMG]


    For the Koolance controller. 2 x Koolance temp sensor and 1 x Koolance flowsensor

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Hope it'll go to 5Ghz :)

    [​IMG]


    For in the bottom of the case. 92mm brushed aluminium fans.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And tape, lots of tape to protect the case later on.

    [​IMG]


    Because i only know since a few weeks i have to cool down 2 Matrix cards i ordered fans with 1500 rpm now, think 800 rpm won't be enough.
    Luckily i could change the red blades without a problem.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Rear fan replaced, also a black fanguard, screws will come later.

    [​IMG]

    Lets change the PSU too.

    [​IMG]

    Had to change the wiring, the leds didnt work on the low voltage the psu gave to the fan.

    [​IMG]


    So a seperate 12V for the leds now.

    [​IMG]

    All red and 1500 rpm now (max)

    [​IMG]


    Even now still in doubt if i will do the fans on the outside and rads inside or rads outside and fans inside.
    Casewindows in the top will be tinted so all the light is no problem.

    [​IMG]


    For future purposes the leds are changeable with one push on the button :)

    [​IMG]

    So again, thanks Freddy for the nice discount !

    Fantastic sleeving on the PSU! Very very neat.
    Looks like this will have plenty of "oomph" in it once it's completed.

    Still think this is just too damn awesome to actually exist! I have no problem understanding why you love that case! :)

    With that Mobo and that Cpu, I don't think 5Ghz should be a problem on water! I believe there is a OC option that will bring you to 4,6 Ghz built-in in the bios! So a little tweaking SHOULD give you the rest! :thumb:

    Thanks Angel OD.
    Did you know it even exists since 2007 :p
    Also can't wait to get it running, but guess that'll take some time :)

    Thanks, can't wait to go on :)

    Thanks m8 !

    I'll be following this. Probably checking daily LOL

    Nice to see you back on the job L3p, but don't you rest?
    Why aren't you a jibbering mess sat infront of your desk, unable to move away from that beauty you created? :D

    Keep up the good work mate

    Hey, I got a PSU waiting for Kier here :D

    No, seriously - my eyes subbed loooong before my brain sent the "Sub-Goddamn-it-SUB!"-command to my finger.

    Professional modding obviously pays better than I thought... :)

    The case is out since 2007, now you know why i waited for 4 years :)
    And im just a normal electrician with a 40+ hour a week job and a 9 month old daugther eating all my modding time. (And that's no problem :p)


    This is the first week i'm really enjoying a game for more then 4 hours. (Witcher 2)
    Don't check for updates everyday please :)
    I'll need to do this just a slowly as the d3sk since i don't have much spare time. :worried:

    Thanks man, so do i :p

    Thanks !!

    Thanks Nutman!
    You can always send him a PM :p
