So sick. 10/10 all the way
My new motherboard arrived yesterday! Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3 THANKS MUNKI!
Looking good Brandon!
The only thing I could think of would be mounting the two radiators closer together or stacked on top of one another so the barbs would be on opposite end of each other however mounting like that could be a little tricky without a custom bracket. getting a quad 120 Rad for a single loop is another option...but personally I like the way it looks now! Very nice! Love the white tubing it looks very clean!
Turn the top rad around bringing the barbs closer to the drive bays, it would cut tubing used down by about a foot. The 2nd loop, even though the drive bay res looks sexy, could use a standard pump in the bottom of the case and a micro res near the video card, that would cut tubing used down by a foot there also.
Could even combine the 2 loops onto the trip 120, wouldnt notice much of a rise in heat. This would totally omit the use of the 120.2 and it's feed/return lines. Running the bottom outlet of the cpu to the top inlet of the gpu.
I agree that one loop would make it look nicer, even if you left both rads in it.
Well I decided to re-arrange my system setup and add a more powerful sound system
now to explain a few things... The monitor was victim of a bored female friend of mine that borrowed it lol. Yes one of my walls are pink... ran outta paint and I'm broke. Yep... that's the 2gb James Raynor flash drive from the SC2 collector's ed. The sound system is a Phillips MC-500 Micro System. Anyone know the modern equal to it? Also... Does anyone else have my case? I'd like to know exactly what case it is. There are no brand or model markings anywhere.
And my laptop.
Finished upgrading my T43 laptop. Finally got the T41p LCD screen swapped over to it and its maxed out at 2GB ddr2. The LCD is actually an older IPS display, and can run at 1440x1050 res. I also added the finger print scanner from a T41p to it... It surprisingly still works. It still runs pretty well, but it REALLY needs a hard drive upgrade. Oh, also applied a Windows 7 theme to it. It can play Farcry 1 on High settings.
Specs to the left.
Edit: @THE_EGG... I Google'd that Citroen DS3, it is a nice car.
I'm thinking about it. I'd have to start cutting the case up in order to flip the radiator around and that's the only thing keeping me from doing it. I'd rather not cut up the case... But I'll get bored one day and probably do it anyways.
Too bad the tubing holes weren't at the top of the case at the rear. Then you could hide the one GPU tube along the top edge of the case.
Does the triple not fit up top?
The top bay was designed mainly for the H100. There's one, maybe two aftermarket 2x120 rads that will fit up there. Very little clearence.
25mm is the max thickness it will take. This is what I'm using up there: http://www.performance-pcs.com/cata...d=3985&zenid=dce2a87bd9db51c011ff667efee7f898
Personally I think it looks beautiful and I would not change a thing. On that note if I were to do some thing I would just turn the top rad around if you can. Other than that it is beautiful!
That kinda sucks. It almost looks like you could pull the bottom drive bay and get a dual rad down there, and there is very nearly enough room to slide that triple rad in the case itself, between the bays and the VGA...There's a few options, I suppose, but having two loops definitely doesn't help with tubing runs.
I think it may be made by iCute (but don't quote me on that)
Or you could set the fans in pull, put the rad internal.
That case looks like an Apevia X-Dreamer (probably version 1 or version 2, the newer version, looks a little different)
Nope definitely an iCute it's model is ICUTE 8310SL-AL I know this becuase years ago I looked at it when I was wanting another case but I ended up getting the iCute 0509ULA - 4G - BS bigger fans and more of them
Similar but that iCute doesn't have a full plexiglass front panel like xBruce's has... take a good look at the pic and you can see a small crack in the plexi on it.
** EDIT- doesn't really match the Apevia either??? lots of branding going on between case models- could be a house brand from somewhere or a clone of another case***
the iCute has the same slanted vents at the top and the side panel is the same with the X pattern with the fan in the middle on top, but not on the side panel, however the front design isn't quite the same.
taking more pics of the case (guess that'd help eh?) will edit when done.
Here's some pics back when I was first building the system. I stripped the case to route cables and such.
The Antec fans came with the case when i got it, but I dunno if they originally came with the case (I'm not the first owner) but i think it is most likely an iCUTE case.
EDIT: At least we know it was made in China...
It is a Apevia case. I remember new egg selling those.
Looked at Apevia's site under Midtower, none of them had the side bars that light up blue up front.
EDIT: Definitely an iCute http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ICUTE-831...ponents_RL&hash=item3a6a7ab9ee#ht_1606wt_1177
edit 2: at least that one is very close... doesn't have the little holes at the bottom part like mine.
Well I just did a quick search. And didn't find a Icute case that was identical. But I didn't find a Apevia either that was identical. T Icute case I found was more like his though. So I will sy it possibly is a Icute case.
I had that case Bruce. It really has no brand name. I got mine from Geeks.com back in 2004 or so.
did a google image search... i did find the exact same case... on page 22. wich... is the pic i uploaded not to long ago lol
google image link
i wonder if geeks.com keeps their older stuff on the website like newegg does. Heh... 2004... this case is getting old lol
Nope. I just checked my account and it only goes back to 2008 for me.
The case I'm looking for "see link in my sig" is from 1999 or 2000
