Welcome to my Silverstone TJ07 Inverted ATX Mod thread.

I bought a Silverstone TJ07 from Chilledpc.co.uk. I've had Tom and his crew to create a inverted ATX mod to the case, as well as cnc cut window and holes for wiring, and powdercoated in matte black.

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this project and here is a list of some of the things that are stuffed in the case.

Hardware:

Case: Silverstone TJ07
CPU: Intel I7 920 D0
Motherboard: EVGA X58 LE
GFX: PowerColor HD5850
RAM: 6GB G.Skill 6-7-6-18 Trident
PSU: Coolermaster Real Power 700W
Ssd: OCZ Agility Ex
Drive: Liteon iHES208 Blu-Ray

Cooling:

Reservoir: LUND Pom Plex
Pump: Laing D5
Radiator: HW-LAB GTX 480 Radiator
CPU Block: HEATKILLER Rev 3.0 LT
Gfx Block: EK – FC5850
Hose: 12mm White
Fittings: 12mm Push-on
Water: Primochill Ice Steel Blue


Price: Expensive project !

Let's get started.


Here I have just received the case from Chilledpc.co.uk.




















Motherboard, radiator and pump are now installed.








I have made an opal acrylic midplate and put the hoses through it.






Here it is almost finished there are installed a top window and all the screws are replaced with black screws. There are made a new acrylic midplate which are nicer than the first. There are now water in the system.















That's how far I have reached it has taken me 1 ½ months to get to this point. There is much work put in this particular sleevering cables takes a very long time to do. But it also took nearly 1 month to receive the case from England.

To do list:

- Manage cables on the back. []
- Replace the screws on the back with black screws. []
- Mount a temperature probe in the top of Lund reservoir [X]
- Spraypaint the Blu-Ray Drive matt black DONE [X]
- Replace the OCZ Summit with OCZ Agility Ex [X]
- Replace the water with Primochill Ice steel blue [X]
- Replace the EK Supreme with a HEATKILLER Rev 3.0 LT [X]
- Awaiting a new OCZ Agility Ex from RMA []


To Be Continued….

Love the Black and White. Also the opal acrylic midplate! SWEET. One of the best I've seen. Very sleek looking. Great job. Wish I had the patience to do that. I've had the same Thermaltake XaserII case since I bought it new. LOL.

Such a freaking awesome case and even better now that it's got a reversed m/tray. It was the same with my Lian Li PCA05B. Some motherboards with heat-pipe cooled chipsets don't always work as well... apparently, but it sure as hell makes things easier.

You should be proud of the work you've paid for as it's very professional, I love how clean it is as well - nice and tidy, just how it should be.

Smile hard as this is something worth smiling about.

:D

I also really like how it's all glossy black & white. Pretty nice.

Here is my freshly painted Blu-Ray drive.






Here is my brand new OCZ Agility Ex.



But the joy was short!




I tried to mount my SSD in a different way, what do you think?

Update 09-01-10:

I'm now finished cleaning my loop and change the water :)

I started at 03:00 PM and finished at 10:00 pm, so it took about 6 hours plus breaks.

The old red water was very difficult to get out of my loop.

Here is what I did:
--------------------

01. Emptying my loop for the old water.
02. Filled demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
03. Filled a mixture of 5% citric acid and 95% demineralized water and let it run 20 to 30 min.
04. Filled demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
05. Filled a mixture of 1:10 sysclean and demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
06. Filled demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
07. Filled a mixture of 1:10 sysclean and demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
08. Filled demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
09. Filled a mixture of 5% citric acid and 95% demineralized water and let it run 20 to 30 min.
10. Filled demineralized water, and let it run 20 to 30 min.
11. Emptying my loop of demineralized water.
12. Fill the new Primo Chill Ice Steel Blue on my loop.

At some point there will be a video of the new water :)

I'm tired, goodnight!

There are several reasons that I didnt chose Classified.

1. It was not in stock, and I would not wait 1 month.
2. If you compare the 2 motherboard, then the LE version would cover my needs.
3. The price of Classified is very expensive, so I would either spend the money somewhere else in this build.
4. I wanted a motherboard that was completely black so it fit in my build.

Do not be afraid of wc, it's pretty easy once you have started, just do not buy bad water as I did :roll:

Thanks

Update 23/01-2010

Hi,

I have now received a new SSD, I bought for nearly a month ago an OCZ Agility EX, which was DOA, so I've been through a RMA ...

I got my money back, but I could not find them in stock anywhere, so I had to look for a new SSD.

Then I got a good offer on a new Intel X25-E 64GB and it´s now installed in my machine.

Here is a picture and a crystaldiskmark 2.2 benchmark image.





Remember it is a single SSD nothing RAID0 or something like that.

I use the onborad controller.
