The Extreme IV v2
I Am currently working on a school project where i have build an own computer case from scratch and the idea is to fill it with "extreme hardware".

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (temporary)

Water Cooling:
EK-Supremacy - Acetal + Nickel
EK-Reservoir Combo DCP 4.0
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)
2x EK-FC6870 - Acetal+EN Nickel
2x EK-FC6870 Backplate
EK-FC Bridge TRIPLE
EK-FC Link BLANK

Now lets see some pictures!

The rear plate will be screwed in to the motherboard plate. You can also see the front.
I choose to only have one 5.25 "for a fan controller because i dont need an optical drive.

It has been a while since I updated but have had other things for me so haven't had the time to upload the pictures. As you can see, I mounted some parts out of the water cooling in the computer. I had to remove the plates that lock out the power supply as the res was to high.

Took the fan control from the other project, I will buy a new one if i need to some day.

I also changed fans to 5 Phobya Nano-G 12.

I put a fill port on the bottom so I can drain the whole system easily.

As this was my first time to install watercooling I put a lot of paper in the system while I was testing the watercooling. The gpu blocks didn't fit but i am working on a solution so stay tuned!

Looking nice so far :thumbsup:

 

Wish I had school projects like that :rolleyes:

 

 

School project! The best I ever did was a small 9V power supply!

 

 

I made a basic signal generator and variable power supply. I could only have hoped to do something like this. Good work :thumbsup:

 

Thanks guys! :rolleyes:
