[Build Log] [99% Complete] Another 800D First time Modder

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
First off I'd just like to thank everyone on OCN for their help, creativity, and guidance. This build is not going to be a master piece of artwork. Its about making use of the resources/components I have and learning some basic modding. Making my own side panel windows and cut outs for case fans are some of things I have planned. Most importantly however is fitting my 3 radiators. Everything I do will revolve around how I manage to squeeze them in there. Here's the basic premise:

Everything in here:

Has to go in here with extra cooling parts:


I've never done a build log, any modding, or even used a dremel so bare with me.

Thanks to JD2195 for the encouragement and my blue print









Learned so much doing this. What to do and what not to do.

I'd like to thank Chris at enerdynesolutions for sending me a new Indigo Xtreme eti after two failed installations. After finally getting good reflow and lapping my IHS I saw +10c drop in temps under load.

If I can sell this I will begin the next project...scratch build dual cpu water cooled
