Side window update
As promised, the side window update. The SilverStone case has the side window cut from the factory, it was a simple matter of unbolting the clear one and using it as a template for the green uv.
Then cut it out using the jigsaw. Very EZ mod. I don't think it took mre than a half hour to complete.
And a few case shots.
Up next will be the acrylic plate to mount the Innovatek reservoir to the case ( I will not be using the aluminum mounting plate in the pictures, it will be bolted right to the green acrylic).
I LOVE THAT UV GREEN PLEXI!!!!!!!!!!!!! :drool:
Looking so cool
why dont make a uv plexi mounting plate for the reservoir?
Basically that is what I am going to do. It's hard to explain, just hold off for the next up date and you will see what I am talking about.
I also need to do a hardware update on the H20 blocks that came in.
i cant wait
Great mod so far! That plexi is amazing. I'm drooling over the chrome.
I'm worried about you mounting the reservoir using the plexi instead of the supplied metal plate. Do you have any concerns about the plexi's ability to hold it? That 1/8" plexi isn't very strong, I would double it up at least under the reservoir. But then again I tend to over-build .
Looking good, oh and thanks for the plexi resource, I'll be looking them up for my next project!
Um..chrome..green plexi.. are you sure your name ain't G-Gnome?
please dont start saying he is copying others its not like g gnome patented chrome and green. just dont want to hear another war about copying ideas
omg, did you not realise that green looks nice on black? and he has everything chrome on black narcissus?
And how is it copying really - its called inspiration.
Thats like the 1st person with a black case, saying no one else is allowed black...
Thats like the first person to buy an FX-55 saying no one else is allowed to buy an FX-55.
Why would you publish your work on the net, and expect elements not to be used by other people. It would give me great pride if others used my idea's, and also to try and improve upon them.
You have an uncanny skill for this type of work
O.K., I have an idea...
"Modsquads Performance PC's" where one of kind high performance PC's are born.
Looks amazing. I am using uv green in my mod right now, but my stuff doesn't glow like that., wish it did.
You and I think alike. The mounting plate will be 2 sheets of acrylic (the size of the top of the case). I may just pickup some 1/4" thick clear and use that. I need to get longer bolts for the reservoir before moving forward.
What size fittings does the X800 block have? Any chance of getting 1/2" fittings in it?
It uses G1/8" (small thread). It is like most German watercooled equipment, small bore. I know Aqua-Computer makes a G1/8" to 10mm barb that would work, but I would think it would be h20 restrictive in an 1/2" system.
Im loving both of your mods! Looking great, keep up the noice work
Let's start with the H20 blocks. The Aqua-Computer AquagrATIx800. An all aluminium GPU block, as would be expected from AQ--high quality.
For CPU and Northbridge, the Aqua-Computer Cuplex Pro and Twinplex.
To keep track of the temps on those blocks the Innovatek Fan-O-Matic LCD. This unit was originaly slated to go into project BN, but found it's way to SG. It is a very nice unit. It will do everything you would expect of an LCD (aka Martix Orbital) plus give the user a H20 flow rate in Litres per minute ( with Innoavtek's flow meter).
With the Black face plate out of stock, I painted the stock one satin black.
I still need to make up a green UV acrylic face plate to screen the display from blue/white to green/white......soon.
I ordered the 1/4" clear acrylic as well as the need stainless bolts to get the reservoir installed next weekend.....Until then....
That Aquagr block looks absolutely amazing.
New Product from AQ. Aqua-Computer is the Rolls Royce of water cooling, there is none better in my book........That block came with no instructions, just a bag-o-bolts. Not having an ATI x800 video card I can't say, but I hope it EZ to install.......
looking sweet man good luck with the mod..
