My pc for now. kinda messy.


The stuff bought for this build.



The gtx 760, had to choose this instead of 770 because the case doesnt fit any 770. kinda dissapointed at this part.since its only short few mm





Package from Apes containing Mcres and ek koolant. This is for my H50 mod, hopefully it'll work.




Ive been working on the 3d for this few days, here some rendered image of what ive planning to do for the mod. but this is is "rejected" i didnt like the design tht much because its still looks like ft-03 and its so simple


But here is the final 3d render. hopefully this is what my modding will turn out.



Today (04/09/2013)

Ive receive one of my package. Its the one that most i been waiting for.
Straight from kuching by Niclasteoh.



I kinda shocked, found a pvc pipe in that package. LOL


But the most important thing is that, it is not a mistake, but niclas did that on purpose,
Here is what sit inside those pvc tube.


see how many layer of paper wrapping he did to secure the CCFL uv Tube inside.

Here is the content f the package, Koolance Uv Reactive 1/4' id tube and UV CCFL nano series (135mm) tube


The package hbeen the most that iwaited for because with it now i can proceed with my H50 MOD!


Here is all the part i needed to do the mod
-tube 1/4' id
-h50
-Mcres
-1/4'' xompression fittings
-Ekoolant
-Cable ties



Next the first thing to do is, remove the screw below the h50 cover, so that the cover can be disassemble from the pump.


Now that the shroud can be take off, i need to unscrew the screw between the two tube, then gently pull off the tube, and the liquid inside will flow out. Prepare a basin for this.




Now that the pump and radiator are separated, i need to cut the tube off the radiator.



After cut the tube, i need to slowly cut the remain of using knife, becuse underneath the tube, is the steel barb connected to the radiator.


Now that the radiator barb exposed, i need to cut the other end of the tube which have a plastic barb tht connected to the pump.



Here is the barb


Next, i continue with assembling the loop together,


Then i did my leak test for two hours, using distilled water first


After everytg is working very well, i decide to mount the pump on th cpu.
Here are the naked i5!


With the mounting installed,


Now i install the pump nto the cpu,


And then onto the mobo tray, together with the res and radiator,


Next i mod the psu part, where i cut abit the piece so that i can install the psu vertically instead of horizontally,
This will not block the view of the H50 pump and also provide more space for the res, since this is a very small case.

Ready for the DREMEL!


It is super ugly! i will file t later, & i dont care much since people wont be able to see it. U can see that it is directly above the Mcres


The whole part assemble together. with the vertical psu.


Now with coolant and uv light installed!



The Colortrail Sleeve also have arrived.

This is going to be interesting. The final render has an edgy look, and I like it. Good luck with the mod. thumb.gif
