I'd like to thank Crucial
for being kind enough to sponsor this project build with their memory modules. Thanks guys!
Special thanks also go to Bitspower
for their lovely fittings
I've been running my PC out of a case for a while now as I've been planning and saving to run it as a fully watercooled system (bar some parts). Now I've got most of the parts and I have an idea what is needed I can finally start on it. I decided that I'll be using a Silverstone TJ07B-W case to house my components. It's a great case that is just built/designed for watercooling in mind and it's not too in your face so to say.
So hopefully by the end of the project I'll have transformed the below...
...into one lean, mean watercooled machine
Below are the full specs of the build:
Silverstone Temjin TJ07B-W
ASUS Maximus Formula II
Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR2
BFG GeForce GTX280
Samsung Spinpoint T Series HDD's
Akasa Freedom Power 750W PSU
MCubed T-Balancer bigNG
Swiftech Apogee GTZ
EK-150 and 100 Res
EK-FC280 GTX Acetal
EK-FC280 GTX RAM Backplate
OCZ XTC Memory Cooler
Scythe S-FLEX 1600RPM Fans
7/16" XSPC Clear Tubing
Laing DDC 18W Pumps
XSPC DDC Clear Pump Top
Going to have all those fans hooked to the TBan and configured for silence :sleep:
The case arrived today and I must say the box is huge.
Over at WCUK a kind member andybones12 really helped me alot to make some rad stands to lift the radiators to the side panel grills.
Here's the design (He didn't have the original measurements so I remade some based on the rad).
I made sure it all lines up with the side grill
Here's the semi-finished product, still got to drill, tap and paint it. I'm pretty sure it'll line up just fine
More updates to come...
