Water Cooling the U2-UFO Project: The Cube

Recommended Posts

Well awhile back I bought ccokeman's U2-UFO case and an old school Thermochill PA120.3 (thanks again ccokeman :thumbsup: ) When I fisrt got the case, I was just so happy to move into such a bigger space than my Antec 1200, and from the 240mm Black Ice II Extreme into the 120.3 Thermochill, that I just threw everything into her real quick and didn't worry about the looks. But, I just finished this past semester and have 3 week off until summer session, so I wanted to get The Cube cleaned up a bit, some wire management, better routing on the tubing, as well as adding a 120.3 performance shroud and getting away from the metal tape (pics will show this rediculousness ;) ) and switching out the fans on my rad! Opening Day at the IMS is this sat May 14, and before I begin a 2 week vacation at the track, I wanted to spend some time on the build getting her looking respectable and all :thumbsup:

 

Remember she is still not finished, only a work in progress. But, I think she is getting there. The 2nd 120.3 and 2 water blocks for the 6970's will have to wait till the fall for now :evilgrin:

 

Feel free to comment, criticize (don't be too harsh), or praise :cheers:

Before, with metal tape, because the PA120.3 did not have brackets for front mounting fans, got the performance shroud to lose the metal tape :rofl:

I Like it!! I really wish i could get some water cooling for my rig. But this secondary rig im putting together has used up of all the spare money i had.
