    Ok, so I think I'm addicted to these things. As you may have seen from all of my previous builds, I am a bit of a Lian Li fan.

    Anyway, I impuse-bought a little lian-li off a chap on here, and it wasnt even going to be water cooled - just wanted the case.

    I then got him to do me a deal on a rad along with the case, to do a dirt cheap WC install..

    Then I bought a new graphics card, and a motherboard, and doubled my ram, then bought a new res+pump, and a new hard drive..

    So, from start to finish (in literally a few hours):

    Start with a pile of bits:

    Start to work out how it's going to fit in..

    Panic a bit about the lack of space..

    Go for it anyway ;)

    Get the loop in place..

    Fill it up, test, and fit everything else.

    Hard to get a clear pic of the lack of wires as everything is black.

    so, now it's sat under my desk purring away. I don't have a fan controller anymore, so the fans are a bit loud, but the temps are very low and I'm fairly happy with the air flow, for now.

    I'll get some more pics later with the side on (which has a tinted window).

    Cheers for looking.

    Props for having the A05! Nice to see you take the plunge to put everything inside, it's a very tight squeeze indeed. :)

    Quick update.

    My fans were too loud, so I ordered a couple of fan controllers. They were horrid silver.

    So, I decided to mount them in my case.. pics show the process :)

    (notice the silver bits where I managed to ruin the case a bit.. sigh)

    Not bad little units, heat sinks and everything..

    Can a case that supports a full ATX motherboards and all this coolness really be called SFF?

    I like it.

    Looks good, but where are the 8 fans? Or are some of the controllers not used.
