Caselabs S5 White @ Project Clean Case [Custom Water cooling with GTX 780 Hydro Copper SLI]



Hey and welcome to my 2nd build ever, this time i fell in love with the Caselabs Mercury S5 Case in all white.
If u like to check out my first little casemod click the LINK

  • Top Cover Options: Standard Ventilated Top Cover

  • Power and Reset Switch: Standard Power/Reset Switches with Sleeved Cables
  • I/O Options: None (Less cables ✔)
  • Flex-Bay Options: 120.2 Fan Radiator Mount ($20.00)

Hardware for this build :
  • CASE Caselabs Mercury S5 (White Matte) ✔
  • MOBO Asus Maximus VI GENE ✔
  • CPU i7 4770K (Batch L310B490) ✔
  • GPU1 eVGA GTX 780 Hydro Copper ✔
  • GPU2 eVGA GTX 780 Hydro Copper ✔

Loop di loop :
The cooling for this build is still in the planning phase, not sure what pump top / res combo to go with ect. I will know more when i have all part's in house. the main goals for this small build, is to make a POWERFULL little gaming pc. In a relatively small form factor, and still have the room for decent hardware and custom watercooling.

The reason for the name (Project Clean Case)
The main reason for this build is to make it as CLEAN as possible, with my skill set ofc. Last build i did i was like ohhh this is going to be goooood (IMO biggrin.gif) right up to the part where i startet to mount fans / psu / just in general everything that hade cables on it. Then i was like damn why isn't everything wirreless smile.gif, so this time im going to use alot of time on cable management. I have some idea's in my head how to hide the cables, maybe make some false walls in aluminium inside the case ect. Lets see what comes out of all the idea's i have, hopefully something good.

Well if u are still reading by now, ill like to say thanks for stopping by.

(More will come in the future)
