Lian Li HTPC i7 water cooled w/custom Rad Box - Page 7

post #61 of 66
this is full of win

I started laughing out loud when you said you were putting a 295 in an HTPC.... in the BEST way possible!

This a proper hi-end build for any system. to call it a media computer is a shame!


Awesome craftsmanship!

Yes I do, but with the 38mm PanFlo and shroud to make the radiator as efficient as possible and keep it quiet to. And it is doing a great job. But I did leave room in case I had to add two more fans.

Thanks you! When I told a friend what I was planing he did the same thing, in a good way too.

Didn't know what else to call it, any suggestions?
It is also for 3D gaming.

I must say that I am very impressed with your work. I was planning a similar build and came across your work log. I already picked out the exact same case and PSU before looking through your build. What I am wondering is, what is the tool you used to cut out the window on your case? I am unfamiliar with it. I am afraid of butchering such a great case so if that tool would help make good cuts without damaging the panel It would be a great help.

+rep too for such a great mod.

so after going through the August MOTM thread, i happened across this build log. I really don't have many words to describe this build, other than WOW!! i very much liked the concept of it, and your craftmenship from start to finish was nothing short of stellar, this is perhaps one of the best looking case mods that i have ever seen, wish i could hand out more than one + for this, well done CD69!!

This is great job! Your skills are so good (I have a long road to go! lol) But it's my dream someday I will gather all that tools and do such great works and mods myself. Thanks for sharing and +rep for such a nice work.

Thank you, sorry for not getting back sooner.

The tool is a Nibbler, a cool little tool.

It takes longer to cut the panels but you don't have to worry about a dremel or jig saw getting out of hand and "butchering" the finish. Just stay about a 16th of an inch from your line, it makes a slight crease. Than use a file to finish. That's whats nice about aluminum, it's soft and can be filed pretty easily. And use plenty of painters tape, I doubled it in some areas in case of a slip. Better to use extra tape and time than have a nasty gouge.
Good luck on you build. If I can help PM me. You will like the case to

Thank you all so much for the amazing complements, much appreciated, glad you liked it.
It turned out better than I had hoped, and it works even better
