After i completed the worklog on the single loop.. I didn't like the temps i was getting so i gutted the case again and began modding the case to accept a 240 rad on the bottom panel. LazyMan @ West Coast Mods inspired me on this mod due to his SkullCrusher build. I cut out all 3 mesh grills on the top panel for better airflow of the 6 push/pull 120's on the top 360rad, and mounted a koolance 360 fan shroud with the skull grills from MNPCTech.com. I cut out the bottom hard drive cage, cable management cover and rails to make room for the 240rad, the 120rad is now out. I cut the faceplate of the rad out of the bottom panel and added window edge molding and a 240 magnetic mesh dust filter. I had to add a support bracket to help lift the mid-plate under the hot-swap bays (it was starting to droop), so i used some metal from the bottom panel. I also added a push/pull config to cool the hot swap bays. I cut out 2 120mm holes on each side panel, with the windowed panel as the "push", with dust filter and skull grill (a 140 aerocool shark is drawing air in), and a LianLi fan drawing air out on the other side...it too has a skull grill. I also added a NZXT touch screen fan controller and I modded a 5.25 bay cover to accept 3 led rocker switches that are wired up to the 3 Uv cold cathode lamps. oh, and the 24 pin power to the mobo is sleeved.
All in all i have a 360 Black Ice rad on a Danger Den DD-CPX1 12V 3-Pin Powered Pump, 250ml EK res cooling twin 9800gtx+'s (idle is a few degrees above room temp, at gaming i used to hit 48-53C, now its around 30-38C), A 240 Black Ice rad on a 5.25 bay res/pump from XSPC (with blue and red leds) cooling my Phenom (idle 30C, cinebench 10 5 tests, all 4 cores at 100% load=39C). All water blocks are EnzoTech, bitspower barbs, 45/90 and snake style fittings, Koolance quick-disconnects, IandH silver kill coils with Dead-Water, and Feser Base ultra pure water (non-conductive) and base corrosion blocker. 8 LianLi 120mm fans, 1 CoolerMaster R4, 3 Aerocool Shark 140's, and OCZ XTC cooler with blue leds blacked out, 2 12inch UV cold cathodes, 1 4inch and 2 12 inch red led strips. Still pretty quiet and not as bright as some of the pics show. It took me a while to complete these mods, alot of effort and patience, planning and a few bucks..........be constructive with your comments.......if your a troll, you suck. Thanks for viewing and I welcome your ideas, votes and comments. Until the hardware upgrade...........keep on moddin!!
