Starting a SFFWC'd build on a Lian Li pc-v600fa....

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have a long ways to go on my project build but I at least have the general idea of what I want. I started with stripping the interior of the riveted cages. I don't like the look of HD and 5.25 drive bay cages especially if you have a windowed side panel. I knew once I took the drive bay cage out I would need something to cover the front. I searched for 5.25 bay reservoirs that I could mount without the need of the mounting cage. I couldn't find anything but the search gave me some good ideas.

I originally had my mind set on a dual bay reservoir but, unfortunately, due to the poor design of the case, if i were to use a dual res I wouldn't be able to fit a dual 120mm rad just below at the front. So I opted for the single XSPC reservoir. I gave up searching for faceplates and opted to customize one to fit the reservoir.while being able to secure it to the front. I stumbled across an online metal shop called EMachineShop.com and used their program to design the part. Worked out really well albeit expensive. I would definitely use them again if I needed a customized piece.

So here's the progress so far (fairly infantile in it's stages)....







So, the next step is to actually mount the faceplate/res. I just ordered the hex screws for it. Also, I will be putting a fillport just above the res for easy access. I will be using these parts for it:

This converts the M20x1.5 filler cap port to a G1/4

...and the extender to the actual fillport

....and the XSPC M20 to G1/4" Fillport


wish me luck on the rest of my build , especially as it gets more complicated and because I'm such a noob to watercooling.

Oh and I forgot one more thing. I just bought one significant piece. The Titan waterblock...
