- CASE: Cooler Master CSX Blue Flame
- PROCESSOR: Intel® Core i7-2600K
- MOBO: Gigabyte GA-Z6X-UD4-B3
- GPU: GTX680
- RAMS: Corsair Domnator 8GB (4 x 2 GB) 2000 MHz Quad Channel DDR3
- HDD: 256 GB SSD
- OPTICAL: Sony optiarc AD-7670S

Who doesn't know them, the Cooler Master CSX series. The beautiful paintbrushed Coolermaster Stackers 830
I've always wanted to mod this case. Luckily I've made a great deal to with Cooler Master
The only condition was that I wouldn't do anything to the outside. Hmmm ok ;)

So a build entirely focused on the inside.

The Cooler Master Stacker 830 CSX Blue Flame:

Sorry but need to strip it ;)

For the outside I may not use my dremel ... but inside oww yes here we go :)
Marked some lines for a 360 radiator.

On top of the fans there will be a piece of bended mesh.

For the front I've made ​​a cover for a 240 radiator.

I've also made a slot ​​for the Sony slimline drive.

And pasted some nice black glossy vinyl over it.

More soon!!!

Another update!!!... have some finished already ;)

First my thanks goes to EKWB which still believes in my builds ... Niko Thanks for this

What I am going to use from EKWB in this build:

A beautiful old school EK-Supreme HF

A EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
And a
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)

Also an EK-DDC Dual Top (V.2)

Some accessories

Not to forget the beautiful EK-FC680 GTX Acetal/ Nickel

With a EK-FC680 Backplate

Also some Fittings and adapters

Placed the GPU block on the GTX 680

After some brainstorming and trying, I've cut and bend some aluminum strips and cut an old 150mm reservoir (round 60mm) into 3 equal pieces. It was very old and had some cracks so no problem ;)
Placed reservoir holders on the aluminum strips and slide 3 older versions 150mm (round 50mm) reservoirs in it.
Connected them using EK adapters + C47 multi links and crystal links

Placed the GPU and CPU block also connected them with EK adapters and Multi Links

Installed the EKWB top on the pumps and put it under the last res

And last, I have adjusted an existing sleeved PSU with the beautiful MDPC colors Black and B-Magic

That's it folks ;)

Did some fun stuff with aluminum in this update. Cover for the sidetop

And the side cover

The whole picture

Made it black

Did the mobo tray also

And some pics by daylight

Also placed the airbrushed covers back

Thought of nice touch for the 3 tanks, for this I used a nice piece of blue glow acrylic.
Measuring and marked

Drilled holes

And some sawning

Cut it in half

Placed it

Pulled the plastic off

Cut out 3 circles to the size of the res tops

And placed them on the top of the caps

Connected all of the Acrylic tubes

Need a controller :)
For this I have used an old Aquaero. This time the blue version
In the top cover ivé cut an opening ​​for the display

The controller itself I'm placing somewhere else using a custom flat cable.
On top!

Made somekind of bracket and blackened it. Also placed 2 poweramps for dual pump control
Standard Channels Aquaero dont like 2 pumps ;)

Minor change of plans .... I usually do everything with acrylic tube 12OD / 8ID but thanks too Nate I can use 12/10 this time.

Thanks Nate!!! More beautiful products in the E22 shop

Placed all sleeved cables.

And added some blue details.

CPU cover

Fan cover

And a nice total shot for last

More to come!!!

Sit back and relax.

And after a night running the pumps, everything is fortunately dry;)
Done some last jobs before the power goes on.

Controller connected with sleeved cables

Some more glossy black

And the pictures with the caps back on.

Power on!!!
