Thread Starter 
Everything you'll see in this log is a first for me. so bare with me
i have not done this kind of modd before in my life
i have done small adjustments here and there in my 11 years of working experience in fixing PC, laptops and servers

Equipment :

Case: made from acrylic glass (not yet done )
Motherboard : 990FXA-GD80
Processor : FX8150
Memory : 16 gb (8x2)
HDD: 320gb hdd internals for storage
GPU: ati 5450 (saving up for a 7850)
PSU: cougar1200

Cooling Components :

Pump: fish tank pump (i forgot to ask the name from the Chinese shop) it died trying to clean the coil
Reservoir: still to make one
Radiator: air-con condenser unit
Fans: which ever i find here in the local shops
CPU Waterblock: pobya uc-1lt (i cracked the top cover)
GPU Waterblocks: not yet when i get the 7850 then
Fan Controller: i will make one

Be aware that all the condenser units I've seen have been aluminum . Make sure to use some type of anti corrosive.
