Another new Overclock.net member, hi guys

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just joined partly because I intend to purchase a new case and would like some input on modifications to the case in regards to watercooling, but also because I've seen a trend in my searches regarding computer mods over quite some time.
The trend seems to be, everytime I end up with lots of tabs regarding casemodding, most of the best ones seem to come from this site.
I've seen alot of people here combine elegant cooling solutions with a stylish beauty it's hard to find anywhere else.

thread specific content coming up feel free to skip
this thread clinched the deal http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...log-56k-2.html
I had to get one of these and do something similar, though I am sad to report I will place pump and tank behind the HDD cage and will not install a second radiator in the front like he did because I "need" all the space for disks I can get(though I will most likely try to squeeze a 4x120mm rad in the top to compensate)

At the moment I'm sporting a Mozart Tx because I was young and "WOW look at that thing, it MUST be mine" but I am going to replace it with a Lian Li A71FB soon. Still big, but easier to handle and omg look at that thing it MUST be mine.
I've built computers for a few years, light modding here and there, but mostly just sawing off honeycomb filters and making shroud/fan assemblies and such.
I've been watercooling for a few years, since the first time I took the step, the noise reduction and cooling sucked me in and now I can't go back to air.
Not really sure what else to say, I appreciate tidy cases, efficient cooling solutions, not so much a fan of the bling(read: leds in fans, etc, you know what I'm thinking of), like the quiet and like to overclock because it's value for money(if you can cool it and don't kill it) and because sometimes I just like to pretend I'm doing science .
I had to pick a nickname and went with newthiast because while I may be enthusiastic about cooling/OCing, etc, and have some experiece with computers, compared to some of the worklogs I've seen here, I am a complete and utter newbie.
I like to game(pc masterrace ftw, but love for my consolefriends), and I like the precise nature of computers. I've only got one friend who's really into computers, so here I am, hoping for some harsh criticism and some friendly advice.
To the privileged among you with access to laser cutters/watercutters, I envy you, but from what you make of it, you seem to deserve it.
cheers guys and gals

Thank you. I made this profile on the run, feel free to point out anything miffy. I chose the picture after a few failed searches for "lego computer kid fun" and hope my avatar doesn't make me look like an idiot, but I must admit, I do occasionally hug my "Levvy"(Leviathan). Like when I could play Stalker Call of Pripyat at almost max settings, I gave that little fella a good ol squeeze .
I intend to ask some questions in the thread I referred to, but also abit around regarding flow, temps and OCing, so thank you for inviting me to ask . I'll keep it concise though, don't worry
