So as of right now, I am waiting on the 5 phobya fans plus the resevoir i ordered from frozencpu. as of last friday it will

take 2 weeks because of the back order on the res. I contacted them about shipping out the fans seperately this week so i

could make sure there exactly what i want. I will let you guys know how they are once they get here. They look like a solid

fan with a great look to them. I contacted phobya about doing a bulk order for the rest, as no one seems to half as many as i

need of these fans in stock. We will se were i get with that. I still need to order the bitspower fittings, sleeving, the

rest of my fans, lighting, and the lighting fan controller. I am half tempted to design my own controller. Here are the pics i

currently have. Keep in mind all the wiring will be torn out and replaced with the custom cords. I am also going to turn the

water block 180 degrees so the hoses dont cross when they go in and come out. ohh yeah, still waiting on the video card. It

should be here tomorrow.

I was thinking about having the edges of the case air brushed blood red and fade into the black. all but the back. I can take the panels off and have them painted at any time. so that is one great advantage of this case.

Any ideas or feedback would be sweet.

More updates when they come in.

Well the camera is officially MIA. I'll work on getting a new one soon. but for now, you will have to bare in mind the cell phone. I received my EVGA gtx 580 3g classified hydro today. WOW! what a nice card. Talked to the guys at frozen cpu today and they are tossing in some red o-rings for the Bits power compression fittings i ordered. 5 straights, 2 swivel 45's and 1 swivel 90. I also picked up some Phobya HEGrease. Well i was on the phone I had him split my order of the phobya fans up from the frozenQ reservoir (should get the reservoir some time next week). But at least this way i can get enough fans to start mounting the radiator and start piping it. Just got done ordering some 100' uv red 18 awg wire, 100' black 18 awg wire, about 250 pins, a crimp tool, and extractor tool from performance pc. Now i just need to get the sleeving and heat shrink from MDPC. I ran into one problem when i was going through my power supply. Seems no one makes a uv red molex connector for the ax1200 power supply. they have there own configurations. If anyone has any ideas about this, I would love to hear them. Plans for now are to just reuse the ones i have and put in new wire and pins. I will be alternating sleeve colors between black and red on each molex connector. Still looking for a decent fan controller that will also dim my leds.

Yes that's only one card so fare. Planning for a second. But I want to get everything else up and running. Pretty easy to add the second later.

Heres a pic of the card i received today.

Got my bitspower fittings, Phobya HEgrease, and 5 Phobya fans.
I got the rad mounted, and was able to install my cpu and pipe to it. I should get my wire on tuesday to rewire my power supply. My sleeving is on its way from mdpc. I just got done ordering 12 more phobya fans I will have a total of 18 of these fans. I also order 4 power distribution blocks for the fans and a Sunbeam 30W Rheosmart 6 Channel Smart Fan Controller. oh yeah, and my primochill ice non conductive coolant to.
I'm still waiting on the resevoir. hopefully will get it or ship out by end of next week. sounds like im going to be getting 10 of these fans on backorder. after i get my resevoir, I should be able to start this beast up. the sleeving will probably take me a few days to get done. theres over a hundred wires to sleeve.

Hey guys, finally packages are coming in. I got my bitspowers fittings, Phobya HEGrease, and 6 Phobya fans on monday (Cant wait to get these fans up and going. They look so sweet.) I talked to the guys at Phobya, and they're working on getting me the quantity of fans i want to use. These fans sell out quick and I didnt want to waste money on shipping for small orders.

My Wire, crimpers, pins, and half my MDPC order came in yestarday. I got all my red stuff, now i just need my black. should come in tomorrow. I spent the night removing pins, cutting wire lengths and crimping pins on the wire. Got home from work late today, and had to stop at a local hydrolic shop to get my side project tapped. I decided to build a second bay resevoir. I've been wanting to try out some ideas. Yes I'm still waiting for the epic FrozenQ dual bay resevoir to come in. I should get some more Phobya fans, Phobya power distribution blocks, a sunbeam fan controller, and some non conductive coolant on friday. I plan to call FrozenCPU again on thursday about the resevoir. I'll see if i can get an eta on when my resevoir will be ready.

I started sleeving a few wires tonight. I gotta say, the hardest part is removing the pins. Once your past that, its smooth sailing. If anyone is thinking about doing it. Just remember to either lable your wires or draw up diagram of were each wire goes.

Would love to see some pic from you, message me a link to your worklog.

So I talked to FrozenCPU yestarday and look like my frozenQ resevoir will ship out priority mail today. So i should have it by monday.

I received my black sleeving last night as well. I was able to get my 580 sleeved and started pin removal on my 24 pin connector. Looks like I will be pretty busy this weekend. Time to finish routing and securing the hoses, and a ton of wire management. not to mention my fan controller should be here tomorrow. Now i just need to figure out if I need 2 of them or if i can do it all with the 1 fan controller.

so after about 8 to 10 hours of sleeving. i have the video card and motherboard sleeved. Saturday I received a package from Frozencpu of my coolant, fan controller (i only need 1 of these), Phobya distribution blocks for my fans, and 8 more epic Phobya fans. I am starting to think i should put another radiator in there above the mother board and run it in series with the current radiator. I was thinking of going out of the current one into the cpu block, out of that into the 2nd radiator then into the gpu. Just a little over kill though. we will see. also would like to put some more fans in the bottom of the case to push air out. Yes again a little overkill, but hey it would look great. These Phobya fan are epic. They sell out of them so quick that it makes it hard to get them in the quantity that i want. They look great and are so quiet. I got alot of other stuff to do while i think about it. I should get my resevoir tomorrow (hopefully). then i can get this beast up and running.

I still need to get some UV lights, and a couple pushbuttons, one to replace the blue power button and one to turn the lights off and on.

Took another pictures with my phone with the top off the case.
