Modding and watercooling my Shinobi XL window

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Neewbie on the site, I will show you my rig. I choose the Shinobi XL for the room inside and the capability of watercooling

Unboxing the case.





Really good protection in the box.







Roomy inside.



Large enough to hide all the wires.

Removing the top mesh to paint it







Marking the front panel to cut for the radgrilll.



Cut-out, done and radgrill in place.

All the green mesh was change for Orange for my pumpkin.

Painting the EK XTX 240 rad.



Front mesh and top grill in orange also.



It's a better look in orange than in green!!

Modding the top of the case to install a 360 rad



And cutting the bottom 5.25 plate make room for the tubes.




Painting and modding the UltraKaze fans to add red leds.











Taking off motherboard tray and I/O card support to paint them in orange



Paint is done.



Waiting for black rivets from Frozen.

Now everything is back in the case.



CPU loop is done. LEAK TEST TIME.





Now I have to find a waterblock for my 7950 to make my second loop.

More to come!!

Front panel in place with the leds on and no flash.



The top grill



The inside



Received my Cougar DualX red leds 120 fans





Installed and running. I like the effect. It looks like flames




No flash



Now it's just missing the 7950 waterblock, the 360 rad and fittings



I'm not a very good photograph and I don't have a really good camera. Without flash, that is what it looks like.





Finally the XSPC 360 rad came in . Installed in push/pull with my 6 Cougar.






And a nice fill port on top.




Everything hidden with top panel in place.



Only the HD 7950 waterblock missing.

Today, I installed my HD7950 CrossFire. I also change for 2 loops with 2 pumps. I know it's a little bit overkill but I have them, so why not use them. As the Bitspower C47 matte black fitting still BO, I made the loops with regular tube but this winter I will change that for rigid clear acrylic tube.




Final result (for now)
