  1. Final Update!!! To close this year with style I have made a final photo shoot of the Corsair Carbide made ​​today. Enjoy!!! Small change is that I have used the space that was left for a custom HDD bracket and covered all cables which were in sight. Used the original top cover, cut through the middle and adjusted it. Windowed side panel. And shot a few pictures inside. Special thanks goes to: Best wishes and a Happy New Year my modding friends!!!
  2. Thanks. Today we continue to add some more colors, and a tricky part ... Tighten the acrylic tubes. Update!!! Back to the sides. Regarding a wrong size radgrills from a previous build I still had some CNC milled radgrills. perfect and come in very handy. Cant say this enough ... Never throw away stuff ;) I placed them behind the fanholes and mounted the radiators on it. After some thinking regarding the colors, I decided to combine these colors. Red and white Cooler Master's JetFlo Little bit darker Really great fans!! But will have to dim the airflow lol, now they almost blow the sides away :) Luckily I received last Friday the black vinyl, so the right side is also finished. Once both sides installed it looks pretty big now And turned the fans on again... enjoying the colors So did some thinking about the colors for the loops and going to let it flow just like the fans, outside red, inside white. In front of the SSDs, the reservoirs... like this: Placed the inlets horizonta and parallel to the reservoirs and just like the other tubes. Now the challenge. The acrylic tubes that all placed horizontally will need be tighten to something to continue connecting it. So after some brainstorming, I've made a piece of aluminum ​​with holes for tyraps and tighten the 4 tubes from the RAMs. And for the two tubes of the CPU I have cut an acrylic plate and also cut two holes in it. Placed a female EKWB HD adapter and a compression fitting. Unfortunately out of sight, but looks quite nice like this. For the two top connections I have made a similar plate. Measuring, drilling, sawing and filing, but I got them all right finally, and as solid as a rock. Next week more!!!
  3. Thanks Jesse for the build related question, Think this is very personal using pushin fittings and bending the acrylic tubes. It looks ok but I like horizontal and vertical lines a lot more and has a much cleaner look in my opinion. Must admit it's much more expensive but this is something worthy to do
  4. Really tried option A and pay no attention to you, but you keep coming back.
  5. Lol you beat me too it mate... this would be my next comment :)
  6. Thanks mate, and there is a small window installed for the pump section Just a little update regarding some changes Changed the fan controller: The Aquaero 5 Pro instead of the Lamptron controller And now am working on a cover to hide some cables, but more on this later. Changed the motherboard for a ASUS Sabertooth Z77 And put some liquid in again but first some close up pics from the Sabertooth More to come!!!
  7. Update!!! We go on with the EKWB box For this build I will use Acetal blocks. First the CPU block.... A EK-Supremacy And two beautiful RAM blocks, the EK-RAM Monarch X2 Will be placed like this As you can see I'm going to use the 90 ° and 45 ° black EK-CSQ adapters this time. The RAM blocks with adapters: The EK-CSQ 90° adapters: And the EK-CSQ 45° adapters: Also in this build I will use the EK-HD Adapter 10/12mm for the Acrylic tubes Female version: EK-HD Adapter Female 10/12mm Out of sight, I'll use flex tube with the EK-CSQ Fittingen Which then results in a picture like this: And yes ... a new motherboard. The ASUS Maximus Formula VI Thank you ASUS for providing this beautiful motherboard The motherboard :) With backplate Installed As for the GPUs, I'm going to use 2x ASUS GTX780 DCII On this two great waterblocks, the EK-FC780 GTX DCII Installed onto the GPUs With backplate Time to install both sides Unfortunately don't have enough matte black vinyl for the right cover, so can't finish this one yet. I did make a cover for reservoirs with black gloss vinyl. Further more made covers for the Mobo tray, sides and the top. Beneath the angled tray of the mobo I have a nice space for SSDs. So I cut a plate, made it black again and mounted the SSDs Just don't know yet whether I will place it in an angled or straight position. Placed the reservoirs again. Cut the top plate cut and made it black also + A cover for the mobo tray with the size of the mobo cut out Installed it Placed the GPUs More next week ;)

  9. Thanks you guys Update!!! The story continues ;) This time with a upgrade with beautiful products from Corsair Last week I received a great package with the products: First 4 pieces of RAMs, the great Dominator Platinum - 16GB Kit (4 x 4GB) - Speed Rating PC3-15000 (1866MHz) - SPD Speed 1333MHz - Tested Speed 1866Mhz - Tested Latency 9-10-9-27 - SPD Latency 9-9-9-24 Also with two sets of Light Bars Dominator Platinum Light Bar Upgrade kit The bars in two colors. will use the white ones in this build And all necessary parts Placed them... And tested them. Looks so much better then the previous RAMs. Also I've received some fast Corsair Neutron GTX SSDs (120GB SATA 3 6Gb/s) Max Random 4k Write - 84k IOPS Interface SATA - 6Gb/s DRAM Cache Memory - 128 MB Power Consumption (active) 4.6W Max Power Consumption (idle/standby/sleep) 0.6W Max S.M.A.R.T. Support Shock 1500 G MTBF 2,000,000 hours Also modded these by placing a window After some sawing and filing... The 3 windowed SSDs To place this I've cut a piece of aluminum ​​and bent Made slots in it ​​for SSD power and Sata + a hole for a fan controller Will be placed like this Made it black and installed everything Everything still visible with the windows side panel Because I had a different brand of PSU in it, Corsair had some questions about this and they decided to send me this nice Corsair PSU :) The Corsair AX860i Enough cables. Unboxing Always nice to get a PSU in a velvet pouch The PSU Fully Modular Power - 860 Watts 80 Plus Platinum ATX Connector - 1 EPS Connector - 2 PCI-E Connector - 6 4 Pin Peripheral Connector - 8 SATA Connector - 12 Floppy Connector - 2 MTBF 100,000 hours Connections enough Also in a bag, just unfortunately not velvet ... The cables: And the Corsair Digital Link Placed it Cables "formed" a bit allready. This time I did not apply sleeve because the black wires looks very good as it is now. Expanded the cover of the SSDs slightly to get a better appearance, so created a window for the part with the pump. Placed 1 RGB strip above the SSDs And the other side with the black cables Tried to place everything as "clean" as possible and think it worked :) Now testing, and ... the final photo shoot.

    Project: Guilty

    Update!!! It's time for the final pics my modding friends: More pictures: Final Guilty Special thanks goes to: And Pascal van Veen
  11. New scratch build coming :) Having played two years on the Cars computer my son has a new addiction ... Just like his old man, building things. Not PCs(not yet) but Minecraft. So what could be more fun than a Minecraft Creeper build? He has now been two years older than his first air-cooled PC and is now it's time for a watercooled rig for his Minecraft. First I want to thank wwwicked for the beautiful banner ... Top Mark!! Thanks As mentioned: The Creeper And so I did ... first went to the local hardware store and buyed several aluminum strips. Bought Flat strips, angles and other junk. Very nice to work like old times just the same as with Meccano. At first I only had a picture of the Creeper. But it's better to have a real plastic Creeper. So I bought one and applied a scale of about 1:5. First builded the mid section around the PSU. Put the head together. And Started with the legs. When the real plastic Creeper came in and saw that the center piece did not match the scale I shortened it a bit. And then put the legs together. I still had an old acrylic mobo tray which nicely fits in the head of the Creeper. And put an Asus Maximus V Gene on it. Beneath the mobo tray I placed a 360 rad with some beautiful green Nanoxia fans. Now that the frame is ready, time the next step. The cover up, For this I will use acrylic with green vinyl. After some thinking and some tips I found 2 HDD coolers that I had lying around, which will nice when liquid passes through. So after some cutting and pasting: First leg finished. Time for the 2e 3rd leg and midplate done. Now mount every thing very good to reduce the cracks to a minimum More soon :)
  12. Thanks mate ;) Update!!! As promised the sequel: First a filling vid: And the pictures of the filled Corsair Carbide After letting it run for a while, it seems to appears to have no leakage ;) My good CNC mate Pascal (thanks man) had a nice RGB controller which can dim the RGB LEDs very nicely. This gives a very cool effect when spinning the fans. Also placed another RGB strip internally. Lights out!!! All colors of the rainbow available again: And cold white again Or a bit warmer Like I said, the dim function is quite fun to see full power: Dimmed: Also a movie of this nice effect :) Until the next update again my modding friends ;)
  13. Thank you so much my modding friends ;) Update!!! Also this build continues;) it's been a while since I've updated because of other little projects But ...... here it is. Been busy with the other side. For this I placed the in/ outlet from the GPUs like this... going up!! Fits nicely along the PSU. And after some pushing and measuring with the adapters: Right goes to the CPU and comes back to the Res, and placed a nice little fill port. Left goes from pump outlet to the GPUs My new little fillport. The whole thing. Then it was time for the sleeving part. I have used black and 4 different types gray. Connected. And adapted the internal fan a bit. Time to fill :) :) :) Tomorrow there will be pictures of the "good" side and a nice filling movie Before going to sleep 2 nice teasers: Good night my friends !!!
  14. Hi my fellow modders, Think you have heard of this new case(s) from Cooler Master: The HAF Stacker This combines the HAF and the Stacker series and has a nice and new concept: modular cases The case is designed so that can be used to create different configurations. The various housings combined with each other This time I will use all 3 parts to build a case that is somewhat larger than normal. I will also make use of the fact that there is a great competition going on. Presented by ..... Cooler Master. Because they have again the confidence in me to work with this brand new case, I will try to do a Cooler Master casemod competition theme. This will include logos, shapes, little advertising and some updates on this event. I will NOT participate this year because of the sponsored case;) So if you like to win beautiful prizes... Come on and participate!!! How it all began: Sometimes I have a lot of respect for the postal guys. The 3 packages Larger then my son Unboxing. These are the different modular cases: Once stacked ... BIG :) First some detail shots. The 925: Inside: More parts soon!!!
