    This'll be my second water-cooling project. My first one was a success, though when time came to upgrade the watercooling loop, the small case appeared to be a problem.

    Solution: Get rid of it and buy a new one

    Current Hardware:
    Intel E4500 @ 2.8ghz (on stock cooling)
    EMX P35-Pro Motherboard
    2x1GB Crucial Ballistix Tracier ddr2 800mhz
    250GB Western Digital SATA
    MSI NX8800GT OC (Single slot)
    Corsair HX620

    My new case:

    I was gonna have the case painted like this:

    Not with the anodized blue. It's just the effect of photoshopping. I decided to not do this, since I fell in love with the all black exterior :)

    Holes cut out on the side panel. :)

    The holes on top would be acrylic, the one on the bottom for my GTX360 will be mesh.

    Some updates:

    Acyrlic cover for the side of the 5.25 bays. I will be putting some laser-cut stuff on this, though I'm stilll not sure what.

    A beautiful start. Nice tech, a nice case and good water gear. Should look great once it is done.

    Luv what you're doing here, going to keep an eye on this one! Really like way you mounted the raddy....clean and simple.

    Nice job so far - yes, it sounds like a cliche, but I mean it :)

    Some pictures look strangely familiar. Hehe, it's because I've seen them before. Kabayan! Ganda ng pc mo. If you understand what that means. Anyway, good luck and have fun modding!

    Excellent. You seriously cannot beat a Lian Li case. I really like the black internals - I'll have to do that next time I build a case. Good job mate!

    This case is really cool. Not to mention the hardware being used are high-end. Few people can acquire that. Man, this rig rocks! :rock: Hope you get nominated for "Mod of the Month". If bit-tech ever wants nominations... hey, start with me "I am nominating this build for Mod of the Month", who wants to go second? Hehe! Seriously, keep modding, this is awesome!

    Thanks ednismod :)

    The man responsible for the mods is none other than www.tantricmodz.com , he was also the one behind the Mod-of-the-Month nominee, Knet370's Project Thessa.

    It's been a while, but here are some updates :)

    We added an additional hole on the delrin top. This was originally an alphacool 10" reservoir. Now it has extra holes :)

    Btw, i bought some koolance elbows to go with the build as well.

    Since my build will be a blue/black theme, my 4870's won't look too good with all their redness, so I had these made:

    [​IMG]

    the "RADEON 4870" and "CROSSFIRE" acrylic parts will be glued on the side so it'll look like this:
