Yes, exactly. In the first version i used the LRT clear, and on the update LRT UV Blue- 10mm/13mm.
The clear tubing clouded up in around 1.5 months, lets see what happens with the blue tubing.................

New Case feet added, Ram cooler removed, either for good or to be painted black. PCB slimeline fan added for the impending summer days wink.gif

Just some minor cable sleeving left to do...........
and the addition of a second card/water block & bridge.

This is one mean rig. I have a similar setup with my 922 but with no liquid cooling at all, i was wondering how much money did you spend on those components? since i have SLI GTX 560 Ti and a i7 870 running at 4.0ghz with the hyper 212+ i was wondering if i might be able to do the same (or similar) to what you have done, how were you able to remove the HDD bays, and what other mods have you applied to the case, can you fill me up with the info? i am surely interested and would appreciate some ideas on this matter. Thanks

looks awesome ^^ thumb.gif good job

Got a new 580 GTX card and decided to get a FC 580 GTX wb for it & and the GTX 580 Backplate.

Below are photos of the card and block and the rig after it was fitted (along with some very minor re routing), and final sleeving - I'm finally done.

I MUST pay special thanks to Gregor over at EKWB, who helped me get the right parts and also provided EXCELLENT customer service in the process.
The reason i am mentioning EKWB is because i too have read the so called horror stories about their customer service being sub par, but i encountered NO such problems at all-im a firm believer in treating people properly and with respect, and that way one tends to get better results. So just a bit of friendly advice: less of the nerd raging and you will get your problems sorted out. (and for those who may think that im affiliated to EKWB-sorry chaps for spoiling your party but, im just a normal customer thumb.gif)

Nice rig! Did you make that clear side panel? I would love to have that on my HAF.

(18/1/2013) A few items that i have picked up to add to the rig:




Mayhem's UV White Pastel/various tubing (Mastercleer/Clearflex 60)



EK Supreme HF CPU Block that i had the nickel removed



Bitspower Mod Kit & V2 Pump top (Both black)




XSPC D5 Vario & primitive sleeving gear biggrin.gif



My first attempt at sleeving



And again



Primochill ADV clear tubing (thanks to Primochill)



Bitspower Shinny Silver fittings-all are rotary and the 90s and 45s (not in this picture) are dual rotary.

I chose silver so i could use them on another rig if i so chose to do at a later date-black does not suit all colour schemes
wink.gif



Alphacool Full copper radiator for the exhaust fan (My XSPC RX 120 that i bought was just too big, look out for it in the Marketplace at some time)




Aquaero Pro 5

-i have not decided if i will use this or not-atm im using a Lamptron FC5 V2 which does a great job (30w p ch), if i do use the Aquaero, i will get the waterblock for it.

(18/1/2013) Sneak Pictures:

-please bear in mind that the rig is is no way completed at all, full pictures and a complete list of Hardware used etc will be posted upon completion thumb.gif









I then added some Mayhem's blue dye to the Mayhem's UV white Pastel-i was trying to get the colour to match the sleeving etc, i think that it worked quite well.





Still more to come on this 922 -stay tuned smile.gif

Ok, to quote the FF "Done, done, and im onto the next one, done done and onto the next one"


Enough is enough-there is only so much work you can do on a HAF 922 before it starts to look cluttered.

Ive tried my best-and i hope this provides just a little inspiration to others who may want to try the same thing thumb.gif





Sorry about this photos quality but i didnt have the tripod for this shot:
