    Well, we start with the updates.

    This time we will show all loan from Artic:

    I have chosen not to use the second support arms because I didnt need all magnitude
    [​IMG]

    Making thread in this piece, we can give less or more hardness to the monitor's arms to fall under its own weight, or up by the force of the piston:

    Mounted monitors:

    Preinstalled clips to route wires:

    Arctic has also given us the already known thermal paste that perfomance so well:

    If you want to buy this fantastic arm, you can find Here

    Note that the left monitor has been replaced by a 24" benq monitor, which will be in next updates

    see you soon!

    WATCH OUT, HEAVY PICS!
    Hello everybody!

    [​IMG]

    Today we will see the rest of the material that manufacturers have sent us.

    This begins with Blacknoise and the famous fans NB-eLoop B12-PS

    The fans work sooo great, and have a spectacular design, They are very quiet and push a lot of aire.
    In my case, having the fans in pull, the proximity to the grill generates a slight hiss noise that becomes relatively annoying, so I am forced to limit the 4 units that are near the grill at 1200 rpm.

    Well, Now we will see the Alphacool material.

    Alphacool has sent us practically all the watercooling. Also, they have sent me materials several times to complete the project. 10 for Alphacool!.

    We start with the splitter:

    [​IMG]


    The new Alphacool Eiszapfen fittings, nice quality, very good paint and a perfect sealed.
    In this case I decided to use the 16/12 fittings.

    Hardtube 16/13:

    [​IMG]


    The used pump is the new Alphacool Laing DDC310, It has a pressure and a considerable water push with only 10W.
    The top/res used is the little Eisdecke with around 100 ml. It has a nice quality and it's transparency is fine.

    The radiators. I think they are the best prefomance/price radiators:

    Remember, clean your radiator before use it!

    Waterblocks!
    The first waterblock I used has a leak and Alphacool sent me two new units to choose which one to use.
    As i said before, a fabulous company.


    I choose the full brass cpu waterblock because I think is the best for my setup, but i will use the phobya in a next project (yes, other ITX project!)

    The screws are badly painted, but with a spray has been fixed:

    The phobya waterblock:

    The waterblock:

    This one has decreased 4 degrees compared to the previous full cooper ekwb waterblook in the core. I can't see the VRM/Mem temp, but I think has a normal temp because the front/back planet isn't too hot.

    Well, we started the party assembly.

    We have also fabricated a backplate to hide the wiring that will be used in the case. Because of the abundance of wiring I have decided to be as high as possible to give me much space as possible.

    Yes, but that can be a long time if your internet connection is a slow. :wallbash:

    Those are some big images, nearly 4000 px across and IMHO I don't want to see endless pics of rads and WC kit from every possible angle.

    I know it's sponsored, and a good looking build but too many product pics up front do grate somewhat.

    Keep up the good work, good action pics once you got going. GLWB :dremel:

    Please resize your images. This is a joke waiting for ages for photos of fans to load.

    Today I'll show you step by step the installation to the final result of my setup.

    BUT BEFORE! the leak, guilty of change the waterblock:
    [​IMG]

    First photos as I wire the setup and how I managed to order it. Significantly, it is a little ghetto.

    Well, start with the installation (you'll notice that the cpu block is different in some picture,
    it is because the I saw the leak in the first tests and used.
