Recommended Posts

Hello then people :)

 

My first proper project, second water cooled build, but the 100th or something, computer I've built :lol:

 

Anyway; lets start it off.

 

I am aiming for something that looks good and performs good too. I want it to stand out but not be in your face. It isn't going to be the most interesting project log ever, but the end result, I hope, will be very good :) The plan

 

Specifications

 

Hardware

CPU:

Motherboard:

Memory:

GPU:
(For now anyway, I might sell it and wait until the next series comes out)

Hard disk drive:
(Maybe a 1TB drive)

PSU:

Case:

 

Cooling

CPU Water Block:
Watercool Heatkiller 3.0 LT

Motherboard Water Blocks:

GPU Water Block:

Radiators:
&

Pumps:
2x Laing DDC 18w

Reservoirs:

 

The inside of the case is going to be powdercoated a very nice shade of blue (this one here: click) and the externals will be a nice gloss white. The usual cuts, window etc.. will be done, as well as the few extras I have planned :)

 

I've been painting the rads over the last week, I'll show you them soon. That will do for now, I don't want to bore you all before it gets going ;)

 

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thanks Patriot Memory for sponsoring me for this build with their fantastic memory.

 

Peter.

Right then - this has been neglected severely.

 

I have a second sponsor, one we all know and love - Bitspower! They will be supplying me with some rather nice barbs and fittings :)

 

Quick update on the case; it's had most of the cuts done, window is being cut soon, and it's been powdercoated as far as I know.

 

My Bitspower order will be in tomorrow, so I should have all my shiny bits in a week if I'm lucky :)

 

On to the much needed pictures, of the radiators I painted, and the hardware :).

 

Radiators

 

I wanted to paint my radiators to match the insides of the case better, so I decided the best way was to spray them myself. A trip to my local DIY store, and I had some sanding paper and plastikote.

The 120.2 was prepped and sanded as soon as it arrived, so I'll have to borrow oggie's pictures he sent me before he sent me the radiator.

Some pictures of the 120.3 being prepped too.

Now onto the painting, not many shots here as I tried to get it as good as possible and kinda forgot about pictures.

The paint came out ok, there was just a few minor bits but they won't be seen and I cannot be bothered sanding it all down again, spending another
