kempez's Project "Aqua vitae" 15/01/08 | Parts, ideas and test fitting

Before I start, MASSIVE thanks to the awesome folks at WCUK for sponsoring the project with some rather sexy bits and pieces (i.e. most of the water loops). If you want quality watercooling stuff talk to them



TFC, the makers of the fantastic Feser One, have shouted me two different Feser One colours, thanks again to WCUK...and thanks to feser One

As some may remember I am starting a project. This one's based around an A+ Black Pearl and I now have some hardware for it ready to start modding!

Basic ideas:

Two waterloops based around the fantastic dual res made by TribalOverkill. One for CPU (D-TEK Fuzion with high performance nozzle), one with EK NB and EK GPU cooler for 8800GTX.

The project is going to be orange and bluw...blue outside and orange inside with highlights externally. I'm currently working on the sketchup plans for it but am slow at that

There's going to be plenty of plexi involved and hopefully it will be a showpiece of detailed modding throughout...which means it may take some time

Etches are what I'm thinking of right now, the side panel window will frost out the drive bays and have something etched into it. There will also be a window in the top of the case to showcase the res.

Both waterloops should fit snugly in the bottom of the case, with 4 x high flow fans shifting the air.

I'll bring you more in the way of ideas soon but for now here's some pics of the bits and pieces:











Some appalling project sketches (note that rads are double and will match up with mesh lol)





Glad I'm a lot better at PS

Many more mods will be done than this but I'm just outlining a few to get the idea
