I rushed to finish a aircooled version for Dreamhack that was this weekend thursday, for a Gigabyte contest there. After that I will start the real project with custom loop and other goodies.

To start off:

Be Quiet sponsored me with a Shadow Rock 2.



Gigabyte sponsored me with a GA-F2A88XN-WIFI.



What I started doing was to fix the 120mm hole in the front and also make the 92mm hole in the back to 120mm.



Then I started working on a shroud that would cover the powersupply. Used acrylic that I painted black on one side.



Then I painted the inside of the acrylic black too so it would hide the powersupply and everything else.





Then I added the fan grill I got from Bill. Looks awesome!



I got the motherboard and cpu down at Jönköping where Dreamhack is, so I installed everything there. It ended up looking like this.







And here it is together with all the other mods, I always ends up with the smallest mods haha.



So next thing to do is to make a watercooled version. I also have to get ahold of a CPU, I think Ill wait for the new AMD A10-7850K, should be released in January, the 14th I think. I was thinking of using a 50-60mm 120mm radiator in the front. Should be enough for the CPU.

So what did you think about the "aircooled Dreamhack" version of this mod?

With kind regards

Wasn't sure about the plastic fangrill when you first stuck it on, but it looks really nice with the lighting

I want to start by announcing a new sponsor and thank them for all their help, EKWB! Thank you for helping me and sending me:



  • 120mm XT Radiator
  • Supremacy Clean CSQ Nickel-Acrylic
  • RES X3 150mm
  • Fittings










I started out installing the loop to see how I wanted everything, the RES is installed in the top like this.





The 120mm XT rad goes in the front of course together with the DCP 2.2 pump on the bottom.







The entire loop from behind, whats missing here is the cover over the PSU and the pump, working on that right now aswell as fixing all the cables to perfect lenght.





I cant get a good photo from the side because of the tinted plexiglass, although, as soon as I have some lights inside the case there will be good pictures.



Last picture of the day!



What do you think so far?

I have dissassembled everything now to finish the last small details.

  • Complete the coverplate for the PSU and pump.
  • Fix all the cables to perfect lenght.
  • Install a SSD.
  • Leaktest.
  • OS Install and config.


Hopefully Ill have a new update this weekend, until then, have a good day!

With kind regards

Thank you!

The loop is filled with Mayhems, its leaktested and the computer boots up! This project is now finished. I took some pictures of the result, the final pictures will be taken tomorrow though, but here are some sneakpeaks.







What do you think?
