Project: The Ultimate AGP System (PC-A05FNB/HD3850)

Poll Results: Should I powder coat the interior of the case to metallic black?

 
  • 100% (2)
    Yes. It will makes your parts stand out.
  • 0% (0)
    No. Since the case is aluminum and most of your cooling parts are silver color. Keep the classic color.

Are you thinking this is an AGP video card with a Lian Li case work log? You are damn right, and it is going to be Ultimate.

What so special about this work log?
Since this will be my last casemod project before I go back to school and travel. I will put all my modding ideas I have on this project. The system will be fully water-cooled. Very cool indeed. Most of the parts on this project are discontinued and hard to find. So it will take some time to complete.

Why investing on absolute components?
If we are really into casemodding, this question is not really important. I can see why people fixing their 73 Mustang. My casemod hobby started on AGP age, I had Windows 95 and I was live in Vietnam at that time. I always wanted to build an awesome high-end desktop, but I’ve never have the time and money to actually do it. Time going by and the AGP age was already over years ago. I’m putting an end to platform.

Chao. My name is Jay and I’m here to make sure this work log is worth your time, or we can simply talk about casemod logic and see some cool parts. All the hardware are fixed but I’m open to comments and advise.

Main parts:
-Case: PC-A05FNB
-Board: AM2NF3-VSTA
-GPU: HIS Ice turbo HD 3850
-CPU: Phenom II X4 980
-PPU: Zotac GT 430
-PSU: Seasonic or OCZ modular.
-RAM: OCZ Flex
-HDD: Western Raptor X2

OS: Windows XP 32-bit (only choice)

Cooling parts (in planning):
-Pump: dual or triple pumps.
-Rad: 2X120MM, 1X240MM, 2X20MM!?.
-Blocks: ?
-Tubing: ¼.

Mod parts:
-Follow the log and you’ll see.

I don’t get any hardware sponsors since this is not a standard system, but the photo tethering software helps me a lot in this work-log. Thank you!

Thanks for all the friendly advises.
One of the unique parts for this project. I’m not sure if I’m going to use this. I will do a benchmark for this item later.

Be sure to check back.
Cheers
Old Rig.
