To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
» cpu - Intel core 2 duo E6600 overclocked to 3.683, » Memory - OCZ DDR2-800 (444-12), » Gfx card - BFG 8800gts overclocked slightly, » Motherboard - ABIT AW9d-MAX (x975 chipset), » PSU - Hyper Type-R 580w modular, » Soundcard - X-fi, » Akasa UV black lights, » Hard drives - 2x Seagate Barracuda ~ RAID 0, » 2x cd - rom's, » Case - Lian-Li pc-7 - 2x 120mm fans and 4x 120mm fans for the rads.

Mods:
new Lian-Li pc 7 case with side window, EK 8800gts water block, xspc 150 pump for gpu, xspc 400 water pump for cpu, xspc extreme cpu water block, taygon 1/2" tubing, alphacool 10/8mm tubing for gpu, xspc rs120-s rad. gt black ice stealth 360 rad, 3x noiseblocker 120mm fans.

Bought 1" standoffs to create space for top rad, the tubing comes in through the back and straight into the pump and block. I had a danger den fill port - so I turned that around and mounted it at the bottom of the case - that way I can drain the system without turning the case upside down - lol. Then sorted the waterblock for the gpu and connected the tubing, used smaller bore for the gpu to save space and due to the low output of the pump. the cpu temp is now lower than the inside system temp due to the 360 fan mounted externally. only problems I had was I didnt have any non-conductive thermal paste for the gpu and the red lead for the small pump falling out causing the pump not to work and then the gpu temp sky rocketed...........omg I must admit that freaked me out.........lol

When I can vote, I will vote it an 8 (suberb) because of the good idea with the radiator.

Very well done!

Aluminum will not turn out to nice with Liquid pain, just looks bad, he would have to powder coat it to keep the nice clean look it has now, the problem is finding a place were you live that does a nice job on powder coating, and at a fair price, some will charge more then what you paid for the case. powder coating takes lot of time and research and sometimes 2 week to a month for a powder coating shop to finish the job. But I agree this project would look nicer with a matching color inside , but because of it being aluminum, It looks just fine the way it is, if you do happened to get it powder coated please repost.

Nice idea, mounting the radiator like that. I may have to steal that idea.

Nice overclock too.

9/10. It needs a touch of black satin/matt to finish it off.

Ooh! Nice!!
Most impressed. Given it a 9. As someone else mentioned, needs a lick o' paint on the inside just to set it off. Would've got you a 10 that would!!
Noob question; What do the 3 fans on the top do? Look smart but a mystery to me (as I said, I'm a noob at this moddin' malarkey).

its a rad on top that contains coolant from the cpu loop - the fan flow passes through the vanes of the rad and cool the fluid down. many thanks for your comments.

I did think about painting it but I like the brushed ali.
