Evening guys and girls, i've been meaning to post this log on here for a while but never got round to it.. busy busy!
Next up on the rack is a nice TJ07
First impressions of the case are that it is really nice and Silverstone put some decent thought into it.
It's very well build and use of rivets is minimal making it deal for modding.
Quick build outline:
Silverstone TJ-07 Window Version
CPU, Northbridge, Southbridge & Mofset with 10/8mm tubing on a 680i board
I opted for 10/8mm as the guy intends to go dual loop with an SLI setup in the new year and I didn't want it getting crowded in there.
360 Radiator Fitting, Case externals anodising & internals powdercoating.
First off a couple of the shots of the case before I started
On with the show, first problem with this case is a design flaw by Silverstone by about 4/5cm...
I wanted to leave one of the HD cages in the bottom whilst still fitting a 360 rad down there. I took one of the cages out leaving me with just this one,
The HD cage is too far away from the front on the case... it's these vital few centimeters I need to steal back to allow me to fit the XSPC R-120T rad in there.
So I moved the HD Cage as close to the front as possible, thus giving me the room to fit the rad without having it stick out of the back.
WOO the XSPC rad now fits.. great success!! :P
Look how tight up the rad is against the HD cage...
No point me really doing much more till it's been anodised, I just fitted the EK Multioption res to the existing motherboard holes.
Nice location for it as it's directly above the pump.
The last pic gives a rough idea of the watercooling setup, theres an inline temp sensor and a drain line attached to the line running from the reservoir to the pump.
Couple of pics of the powdercoating here, ooo nice white internals!
Quick shot of the mobo & all the blocks fitted.
