Bitfenix Pandora quick weekend modding

Recommended Posts

Copper goes well with the waterblock edge visible, but the acrylic matches the res... hmmm... I like the copper :D

I too like the copper. It will also help with dissipating heat as well. Not a lot, but some

There should be a copper color to buy for the cooling liquid :P

Yeah, going more and more for copper. And remove the cooling block to polish it, and of course polish the sh*t out of the pipes too, they are raw now.

One more bend test before i decide, haha

Bending done and all pipes fits almost perfect, some small touch up to do before i´m satisfied.

Yeah, some highlights in planning. Not sure of what yet :)

When polishing the copper, should i seal it with clear coat?

I´m sanding now with 400 grit, and have 600, 800, 1000, 1200 and 2000 as further steps.

Should i go with clearcoat after sanding - clear coat - polish ?

If i polish before clear, something in my brain say it will not stick soo good :)

Painted the rings of the fans... Then i noticed... 

Sucking air OUT trough the rad and then Intake in the top.. not really happy with that one, as Pandora is really small and can cause heating troubles as it is...

 

Its pretty much done right now, just putting all parts together (and wrap the lower part), then its off for final photos.

Oh... forgot the sleeving, have to do that one tonight also :)

A quick mockup pic. before the last teardown. Some small stuff to fix still.

The sleeving for example, orange did not go well with this :)

Some pics after it was done.

Wish i spent more time on the GPU, its sagging a bit, but lifting the pipe the pipe started to sag instead.

Focus for this project was the reservoar solution to make it visible trough the window, instead of the SSD as original.

The top part with the copper/gold accent color.

The outsides, looks pretty much like the Pandora out of the box.

Exept for the reservoar :)
