si, soy español. Most of my computer is from pccomponentes.com, it's a fantastic online store with very good prices compared to other here in Spain but with a very limited catalog. Oher good online stores here in Spain (online is the best option if you want fairly good prices here) are alternate.es, izarmicro.net, coolmod.com and 4frags.com, these all have a bigger catalog but in most articles not such good prices as pccomponentes

I finally got back my camera, so here are the photos

this is the original messy state of my tempest
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05532.jpg

this is after installing a megahalems and turning the PSU to improve cable management, but without a breathing hole it run a bit too hot
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05540.jpg

this is the two holes I did for the PSU and an other to improve overall airflow
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05713.jpg

here you can see the hole for the CPU power NZXT cable, I know it's crap but I don't have the necesary tools to do it better, however it plays its role perfectly...
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05714.jpg

here's the result of the cable management without the mobo. Paintwork is not perfect, but you wouldn't be seeing that without the flash of my camera
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05715.jpg

almost done...
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05716.jpg

done at last!!
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05717.jpg

this is what you can see from the bottom, I know there are a lot of scraches, but no one gona ever see that (except you lot:roll:)
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05719.jpg

this is the NZXT CPU power cable, nice isn't it?
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05768.jpg

and this is my "cave", or that's how my mom calls it....
http://i915.photobucket.com/albums/ac353/EvolvA/DSC05769.jpg

Wow! the before and after shots are a big difference! You did a great job cutting the intake holes on the bottom and I like the red and black you got goin.:toast:

You can bend the bottom sata cables upward and mold them into a single line with the ones above.

You can't always get perfect cable management, but straight lines, and hiding one cable under another like one bunch makes it look cleaner.

I attached a paint maseterpiece :)laugh: lol) to show what I mean.

Dude, if I live close to you I would be so happy to come over and perform the cable management on your case.:) Any way I took a good look at your set up and came up with some tips that shouldn't requier any hardware removal, just the back panel:

With the way you sata plugs are setup you can do what KieX said by overlapping them to look as one and instead of puttung them through the right hole, just run them straight down under the mobo and up on the backside. From there you can run them to the right (behind the tray) where your hdd's are, I hope that makes sense.

I have more good tips but it is easier to show you in pictures rather then just words, but I'm at work right now so I will post them later.:)

DAMN:eek: xrealm20! your hades looks awesome and for such a small case you managed to make it clean. I like how you tucked the pump/res in the hdd bays, excellent job:)

Thanks t77, I spent a good amount of time trying to figure out where to put everything. I actually had intended to put the radiator inside the case, but it covered the ram slots on the motherboard, so I had to improvise just a little ;)

I'm really suprised how much room there is inside this case. Fitting a 300mm graphics card, Aka 5970 should't be a problem.

Yeah water cooling can be a pain in the a$$ sometimes, but you definitely made it work. I'm sure you thought of this already but there is one way you can improve your setup to make it a little bit more efficient. You can cut 2 holes at the top of the case and flip your rad so the tubing goes straight down into the case, rather then wrapping around from the back. The less amount of tubing you use can make a good difference. Here is a very poorly edited picture of what I'm talking about >


I know this would take some work to accomplish so I'm not saying "you must do it", no this is just a small idea maybe for the future if you haven't thought of it already.:) Believe me your case is quick sick the way it is!:toast:

Before when I've built WC systems, I normally went koolance - so, assembling the WC system was much easier when the pump, res, and rad were already installed =)

Thanks for the suggestion about the loop, and I'm actually going to modify the way it runs when I get a second 5770. Going to add them to the loop with an additional radiator. Should be fun ;)

Changed my loop. Now everything is internal to the case, and looks tons better.



The only con is that I've only two expansion slots open now with the dual rad up front, and both are taken already by the DVD-RW and the HDD. Then again, I am not going to need more than that anyway.

Very nice!!! I noticed your cable management has improved too:rockout:, it looks a lot cleaner! would it be possible to see some more pics? I mounted my duel rad in the bays as well, but I wasn't 100% on that choice due to my res location. I ended up getting a different res, so it might work better. I want to see your setup with that rad position.:)

Here's before I changed the fan grill:


The rest of the pics aren't very good, fitting the camera in the case was tricky:





Top rad too:





The front dual rad is bolted to the lower front fan-grill (the one that can be removed with four screws from the front) through the lower front 120mm fan. The top front 120mm fan isn't bolted to the rad, but rather to the top front fan grill, but it snugly fits right where it should be on the rad.

Wow I didn't know you had a 2nd rad on the top! Looks like a sweet setup:toast: is the top rad a 140mm? looks like that fan barely fits. What you cpu temps like?

Wow I didn't know you had a 2nd rad on the top! Looks like a sweet setup:toast: is the top rad a 140mm? looks like that fan barely fits. What you cpu temps like?
This is a bargain-bin Thermaltake BigWater 745. The top rad is 120mm, it just looks bigger due to the shroud. The total setup is a dual rad up front in place of the HDD bays, the single rad on top, 3/8" tubing, a TT copper block with acrylic top (with pretty bad flow-design for the block) and a very sucky 400L/H pump. I run distilled water (as coolant) plus a few drops of Copper Sulfate (as biocide) in the loop.

With an ambient of 20c idle temps reported are:
24c CPU temp readout, 32c on the cores.
Load temps in Prime95 are:
42c CPU readout, 43c on the cores.
Load temps in linpack 64-bit are:
57c CPU readout, 57c on the cores.

This is at my 24/7 settings of 4050Mhz at 1.28v on the cores, 1.57v CPU PLL, 1.34v CPU VTT.

^^^ Those are pretty good temps bro, I know those Tt blocks are crap but you made up for it by running 2 rads.;) Congrats on the overclock! I take it your in the 4Ghz club? I will hopefully finish my long over due water project and reach my 4.0 goal soon, But I have a Phenom II so it might be a little bit more challenging.:p

I'm selling a Laing D4 pump if your interested? the flow rate is 1400 L/H, but it's little on the loud side.
