[case mod] Watercooled Q08-ITX casemod Finished - Page 2

Got some pics right now, took in bad lighting tho.. frown.gif


"a family photo" some of the stuff thats going in smile.gif



Look inside:



And lighted up, i think looks even better with case being white smile.gifThinking about painting the LCD-tempscreen black parts into white, what do you guys think? Would it be too white..



Also, front USB:s are 3.0-model so they will fit perfectly in the theme with their blue colour!


Also been thinking about switching my Super flower non modular ATX-psu to -> silverstone Modular SFX-model. It would give more space, and i would solder bitfeix wires to be modular..

Also this would give me ability to make window on the top, what do you guys think about this? (i think it would look great, since all cables would be sleeved and they will be seen even better thumb.gif

My opinion is keep the LCD display bezel black, I like the contrast thumb.gif
Awesome build so far, keep it up!

Hey all! Lets bring new update thumb.gif

So as i earlier said, i wanted aluminium frames for windows, i think the common rubber U-channel looks kinda cheap..

So, i had to buy new tool to cut these.. Pretty nice thing for its 20e price.



And few pics, in diffrent lighting:



(See bigger picture by clicking it)

I think it came up nice, doesn't look as good in pic.. The plexi is there just for test. Now im considering again the painting of the LCD-screen "bezel"

Also, bitfenix is sponsoring me with:

-White alchemy cables, to make them 2-colour (blue/white)
-140-spectre pro for radiator
-White led strips
-Sata/molex/fan cables

-And chrome Bitfenix logo, which i will put in a nice place wink.gif Just to thank bitfenix and couse its actually nice logo, speacially in chrome.

What do you guys think about the frames?

The project has face some big changes... I still decided to rotate case other way.

Had to plan loop again, got also new window frames and i think its much better now! What do you think?

Also, im getting SFX-modular psu by end of the week, so more on that in few days, ill be soldering all my bitfenix extensions to it, which are coming from bitfenix.

This is just few fast pics, before i take more:





Front panel will have black fan controller (probably bitfenix recon)

Also, SFX psu made me able to use 120mm fan in the back, it'll be white spectre pro, with nice light thingy that i will show later wink.gif

Wow.. Haven't updated this in a while, let me show some pics of proceed.


Soldered bitfenix extensions straight to the PSU modular connectors.


Also made some "cover" for exhaust fan.


And lightened up, it looks better in person, since only the plexi middleplate is illuminated, it reflects in the picture..


Washed these in boiling water


And allmost ready.. Still have to paint the radiator.



Tommorow working on front panel, have to make some "breathing" leds etc.
