Aerocool Xpredator Watercooled Evil Green

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ok, i have the Aerocool Xpredator Evil Green Edition case, and i am going to install a thick 360 radiator into the roof, with a set of push fans, and have another thick 360 radiator on the front of the case with a set of fans on pull.

My motherboard is the Gigabyte Z77 G1 Sniper 3, running a Core i5 3570K, 8GB of Corsair Vengeance low profile 1600mhz 9-9-9-24.
PSU is the Corsair AX650, with a Corsair Force 3 240GB SSD. DVD drive is a standard Samsung drive.
And my video card is the MSI Lightning GTX680. I will be watercooling the CPU and GPU only.

I want to go with 2x XSPC RX360 Radiators, the XSPC RayStorm CPU Waterblock Copper Edition.
To save room i will use the XSPC D5 Dual Bay Reservoir and Pump Combo.

Coolant will be Koolance Fluorescent Green Liquid Coolant, with PrimoChill PrimoFlex Pro LRT Tubing UV Green 1/2ID 3/4OD.
And so far i will probably be going with Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black 1/2 Compression Fitting CC5.

For fans im gonna use 6x Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition fans, and a single 140mm Corsair AirFlow fan on the rear.

All parts will be purchased from PC CASE GEAR as i live in Australia, they are my favourite pc retailer.
Except the GPU block, i got that from SIDEWINDER COMPUTERS over in America, the Aqua Computer Full Coverage GPU Block for MSI Lightning GTX 680.

I have just started to order parts for this build, and will post pictures as i progress on the build.

Im going to paint the Corsair fan rings green, because im going for a black and green theme with this build.

Also to mount the front radiator i will need to remove the hdd cage, and cut a hole into the bottom of the dvd bay area,so the fans and radiator can stick up into the few lower dvd bays.

And for the roof, i want to try and remove the slats that are up there for dust protection, and mount the radiator on the outside of the case, sitting where the roof slats used to be, and the rest of the roof shroud will surround the radiator and should look clean. And i will probably cover the radiator with a 360 mesh dust filter.

I have watercooled 2 systems in the past, so i have some watercooling experience, but i havn't done any case modding before, so that should be fun.

Even with the slats removed, the hole in the roof panel will only fit a 2x120mm rad, so im going to just leave the roof panel off all together, and have a 3x120mm sitting on the roof.
I will have to cut a hole in the roof at the rear of the case so i can let the fittings poke down inside the case.

Painted one of the fan rings green, now just gotta do the remaining 6. The paint looks great, almost as if corsair made it themselves, well not that good.

My cpu bracket is just a tad blocked by the cpu cutout, i will cut the hole the make it larger so i have complete access to the cpu bracket while the motherboard is installed.

I got a different cpu block, the Koolance 380I, i decided the copper block might not have looked nice with green tubing going into it.
