    Hello to everyone!

    With my first post I will introduce my first modding project based on the unique In Win Tòu.
    I would like to thank my sponsors: In Win Nederland , Aquatuning Europe, MSI Europe, Transcend, Patriot Memory and Noiseblocker.

    With In Win's 30th Anniversary, I will modify the Tòu while keeping some of its design.

    I will update the system specifications once everything is set.

    First the awsome & unique In Win Tòu:

    Hello and welcome to the forums. Project logs require pictures of work in progress so I'll move this over to Modding until then. Send me a PM or report this post when you have some pics.

    UPDATE!
    Here is the new reservoir for this project :D
    [​IMG]

    Painted the cap, aka fitting plate :)
    [​IMG]

    Labels removed and drilled the space for the fitting
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The bottle/reservoir is connected to the pump and its block with regular flexible tubing and fittings, this way holds the whole assembly better than hard-tubing and fittings.

    The Graphics Card (GTX 660) for this case, just like in my other project, it matches the motherboard and still going strong in gaming!

    Speaking of motherboards...

    Here are the freshly painted PCI-e covers with matching thumb screws
    [​IMG]

    The Alphacool radiator is already in its place with metallic and rubber washers
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The wood side panels are done and already on the case, next I have to mount the corner small panels
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I did my first bent!
    By the way, those white spots are just dust from cutting the tube.

    Here is the system without the Power Supply and before the watercooling setup

    Yes the bottle is not straight, it's a feature, if you know what I mean :D

    The interior, I had to swap the GTX 660 with a GTX 650 Ti, I had a major leak and the water went straight on the GTX 660, at the moment I am still trying to dry the GPU.
