    Good day Tech Power Up!

    It is with great pleasure that I share with you an album of my latest completed project, featuring a modded Silverstone Fortress FT03 case. With a 400x200x85mm radiator strapped on the back, custom designed panels and doors, and straight hard tubing in vertical runs - makes this FT03 a case mod not to be reckoned with!

    Hardware includes:
    Silverstone Fortress FT03
    Intel Core i7 4770K @4.8ghz 1.4v
    ASUS Gryphon mATX Z87 + Armor Kit
    Corsair Vengeance Pro 4x4GB @ 2133mhz
    Silverstone Strider ST85F-P 850W PSU
    ASUS GTX780 3GB SLI
    Phobya Xtreme 400x200x85mm radiator
    Phobya G-Silent 818 180mm fan x2
    Be Quiet! SilentWings 2, 80mm PWM x2
    Swiftech Apogee Drive II CPU/pump combo
    EK-RES X3 110 reservior
    EK-FC780 GTX Ti - Acetal+Nickel x2
    EK-FC780 GTX Ti Backplate - Black x2
    Icemodz RGB LED strips

    Temperature under heavy gaming:
    CPU 60c
    GPU 1 55c
    GPU 2 55c

    G-Silent fans run at 680rpm, and Be Quiet! fans run at 1300rpm. This watercooling loop is completely silent.

    I will first display the final images, then the renders when I had finished planning this build to show a comparison between planning to execution.

    I would like to thank those companies that sponsored this build with quality products:
    EK Water Blocks
    Silverstone
    Aquatuning.se
    Inet.se
    Icemodz.com
    Caseking.de

    The project build log can be found here: http://www.sweclockers.com/forum/143-projektloggar/1299501-metallicacids-ft03-xtreme-watercooling/

    I hope you enjoy this album! Please do not forget to rate and comment :)

    Kind regards,
    Justin "MetallicAcid" Ohlsen

    Thank you everyone! I am very happy that most of you like it :)

    To the people who gave it 5 or 6, can you motivate why you gave low scores? Or was you just being a troll?

    Kind regards,
    Justin.

    Could you tell me, what primer/paint did you use for aluminium panels?

    Sure, they are powdercoated. I needed them to be super durable!

    Kind regards,

    Hi :)
    I didn't vote
    But if someone noted 5-6 I think it's because of this
    If you rectified these little details finished, it'll be a magical PC


    Photo 1: all tubing are right but those 2 are all wrong and not even symmetric

    Photo 2 et 3: You're doing a superb PC but you don't finished sleeving

    One of my favorite builds here in a cracking case. I here what the guys say about the tube and cabling, but thhat takes nothing away from the eye feast from the layout you see. Love the coolant colour with the matt black background and the vertical tubing.
