Case Mod: Industrial Revolution v0.9.9.9.9 (Lian Li PC-60) Finished/Abandoned - Page 2

if you wanted to you could simply use a little bit of automobile body filler to fill the gap and any imperfections you don't like.

That's not an option?

I've used a lot of liquid metal and auto filler on this. Trouble with using it on two thin sheets like this is that when it dries it goes brittle so if you bang the case it just cracks. Though you`re right if I don't like the gap after painting I can just fill it.

Just need some good weather after this snow so I can start painting.

just got a bargin on some OEM AP181 fans. Got two for under 20 quid postage and packaging. Also weather is starting to pick up so I'm thinking about painting but might hold off on that until after my exams in early May. I also need to fit the rad, ports and switchs before I do a final paint and I don't have them.

So I've started pricing up my equipment.


The copper tube is a 6m length I don't think I've missed anything but I'm sure I will have, possibly get some new 120mm fans as well as deciding on the nuts and bolts. Paint cost is missing and might need a hole saw to fit the fill port. I decided not to go with the fan controller I'll plug the 120mm fans into the motherboard and the 180mm I'll replace the existing switchs that come with the fans with silver toggle switches.

I'm really really tempted to buy the 7950 looking around there's about forty quid difference between it and the 7870. The plan is to get it water cooled and then the cost of water blocks are identical so I feel robbed spending that much on a block for a cheaper card. One option is to get the card and to keep costs down ignore the water block for now but that will mean I have to screw around with the tubing again at a later date and having the 2.180 rad cooling just the cpu is the definition of overkill.

The other slight problem with the 7950 is that my second monitor is a old school VGA output while my main monitor is DVI so if stuff doesn't work out I might lose my second monitor if it's not compatiable.

Okay first sorry for the really really long delay in the update. I've been busy, then I was skint then I was busy again.

Last weekend I had a crack at finishing off the case with poor results to the point were I'm going to finish this mod here as version 0.9.9.9.9. Well here's what has happened.

I got myself a MSI-990FX-65 motherboard, an FX-8350 and a HD 7950 before running out of money for a bit. I had been doing some priming on some of the case parts.

Finally got the WC parts due to funding I went with the 2.120 rad and simple 3/8 tubing.

Some GT 1850s along with filters and grills came a day later.

Some shots of the silver and copper paint from halfords. I like the effect but due to having to paint in an unsheltered area outside the finish is very sub par. First o'shizzle moment.





Built up pretty nicely.



Figuring out placement of the loop.




res and d5 pump in place.

Everything in time to fill up and test the loop.


While running the test I try putting in the switching only to find that the upper extraction fan is in the way of the power headers so have to take that fan out. Second arh shizzle moment..

24 hours later no leak.

I like the toggle switching suits the case.

Plug everything in, Turn on Woot nothing goes bang, power phase LEDs all lit up looking good, wait no signal to monitor what? Check the gpu is all correctly slotted in and the power cables are all slotted in. No luck, try an old GPU card still no look. Try another PSU, memory slot no no no.

Well I might as well take some pictures before I take it apart again.



I do some more debugging and I can't get the GPU to send a signal to my monitor with that motherboard. Tried a load of stuff and the board was working in my Phantom. I try my old gigabyte board and the gpu in the case tray and no go. I check the stand offs are all clear and the motherboard is clear of the tray. Can't get it to work. I then try the MSI motherboard back in the phantom still won't work but the gigabyte board gets a signal so that's now all up and running.

I seem to remember that I use to have an issue with the PC-60 pulling on PCI cards due to some sort of misalignment which was one reason I upgraded the case in the first place but then forgot about the issue. Whatever it is I couldn't find the fault and now I'm in the process of sending back the MSI motherboard back for RMA.

So sadly this is where I finish "Case Mod: Industrial Revolution v0.9.9.9.9 (Lian Li PC-60). It's been an experience and I've learned loads for when I come to do my next case mod on the phantom in 6-12 months time. I'll lurk around trying to get new ideas. Thanks for reading and subbing.
