Project: BLUE (NOT to be confused with Frunj's Project: RED)

Recommended Posts

Awesome. 5970 looks great through that window, and the blue, pretty cool buddy. :)

 

I'm considering a build with the The CoolerMaster ATCS 840. All my LEDs are blue so I'm thinking black and blue, maybe a fist cut-out, night stick or mag light shape. or an arse with a foot in it or my silhouette in foetal position possibly being kicked :D

Very nice finish tunksy! That top grill looks real sexy :)

 

I've finished building my little big project (well until the GTX595/HD5990 gets released) so I'll soon be dismantling my old loop. Will send you a pm today or tomorrow with block pics etc so we can hopefully give your new card the H2O treatment :)

PPS. I really wana see Frunj's project red finished now :)

I'm doing my best here! In that I've made no progress at all. Well that's not true, I've mounted the pump in a HDD cage, but that's it.

 

Yours is coming together well, I love me a good window (especially with u-channel!). It's very nostalgic, hardly anyone bothers going to the effort any more. Got any lighting coming?

Haha not trying to pressure you mate! hope all is going well!

 

Yes I just love my window, I really wish I had a good camera, mine just cant do it justice. U channel is a pain, but it was worth it imo. Lighting I have heaps, Ive still gota put in my blue ccfls, 2x blue lazer led thingos and I already have two uv lazer led things! oh and plus all the blue led fans! hahaha

 

I have to get soem more time to put in the ccfl's and watercooling, I know I should have drilled the ccfl switch hole while the cases was still in pieces :P

thanks mark! your buuild looks amazing! took alot more modding than mine also! that wcing loop would have beenn really tricky too! WB for the 5970 will have to wait til I have some more funds (im going to queensland on the 19th of feb! guess I need to save 1200 bucks real fast ey!)

ok easily gonna have the money for queenslad now hehe :P

 

shipment from gammods came the other day:

 

xspc rasa (silver) yes thats my new block lol I was gonan get an ek HF but then decided i wanted all xspc for some reason oh well it also goes witht he case theme nicely being balck and silver.

got some compressio fitting and damn they're huge! fucking massive as it needs to fit 5/8' OD tubing!

also got more tubing :P

 

looking into watercooling the gpu with marks swiftech full cover block, but also looking into two xspc rasa gpu blocks as they arent that expenive and works out to a similar price, plus it just looks cool in some strange way... but still thinking!

 

might have a go at putting it in tonight and leak testign then taking some snap shots of the sex in a box.

now finally for the porn!

 

this is what had to fit into the case, its a nice big RX480 rad, xspc rasa (silver now haha!), and an xspc X2O 750 bay res/pump.

this kinda shows just how FAT 5/8' OD compression fittings are! wowsers!

Posted Image

nice litter cluster fuck of tubing! was quite fun trying to fit everything in there and do up compressions!

Posted Image

this is how tight the fit was with 90 degree barbs (lucky i had them still!)

i dont see the lights when gaming cant see the top of the case as its under my desk. plus light dont really bother me lol

i used the blue one just cso i had it lying around from a pervious purchase, plus its uv reactive, i had planned on white and UV ccfl's when i can be bothered lol

 

That's one fat radiator!

 

Looks nice!

 

When's the GPU going under water? =D

haha yea, no more drive bay room lol maybe a 360 would have done, but thats just not as over the top :P

 

gpu should go on water when i get back from queenslad (26th) the card is running really cool in the case and i havent found a need to over clock it (havent even touched the 875k tbh, havent had time). but its still something im looking into, mostly for looks. it could also possibly happen when I build a computer for my dads mate (to put my 4 copies of cod4 to use finally lol).

 

edit: i might get bored and upgrade :P
