[Build Log] Little Devil V8 - Acrylic done! Leak testing!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've been "stuck" with the same PC-X2000 case for about 5 years and I have simply outgrown it,
and it has been modded to bits (http://www.overclock.net/t/777507/pc-x2000-add-more-water-finished-8-1-2011)

So after looking for cases and reading case reviews for what seems like an eternity,
i found the case I was looking for.

LD V8:



After looking trough all my stuff, and looking at all the cool existing builds, I have decided the theme
will be WHITE, BLACK & RED.

This will also match my asus MB..

Well the first part I stared unpacking was my new 480 EK XT rad:



Then i mounted some fans:



Then my mouse and keyboard stopped working... ***?
After a bit of searching I found the culprit!

800 grams of pure terror and teeth! gunner.gif



She decided that my USB wire was much better then her food...mad.gif



Just to show how big the case really is. One bad thing about this case is that side panels are mounted with allen key screws and you have
to remove about 14 to just to get to buttom and top compartment.

Subbed for LD, I know how you feel, I have banned my cat from the office after he chewed a headset cable.
post #6 of 22
Was always a CL fanboy [but own none of their products LOL] but these ginormous cases always made me drool. Looking forward to see how you cram all that stuff into your LD case. Subbed..!! biggrin.gif

Thanks for the support guys!

The project will proceed a bit slowly, since Im still looking for a few choice parts.
I need to find two black 5 channel fan controllers, which also shows rpm and perhaps temp.

If anyone know of a black 2 channel controller which ONLY shows rpm that would be great. I need something to monitor my pump rotations,
but I dont need the option to ajust the speeds...



This is the CPU block, EK Supremacy CSQ which matches my GFX covers/Backplates and the dual ddc top.


A sketch of one layout possibility:

Still waiting for some more components...

But while I was waiting i decided to paint a few 140mm fans for the front of the case.

This is just a test on an old lian li fans, to see how the color will turn out.




This is just the first layer of coating. I used the box, because then I can just shut it and not worry to much
about dust setteling.

The end result:

I know i chipped the edge, but its ok since its a color test...



Even though its against my principle, I ended out buying a pre sleeved kit from corsair for my ax1200...
Yeah I know shame on me redface.gif

I accidently found a complete kit with 6 PCI-E, 4 SATA, ATX, EATX and so on at my online
hardware dealer in their "Leftovers" basket for the price of 30 Euro.

This is cheaper than the sleeve and shrink itself from MDPC. And I've got to be honest,
its just as good looking, if not better then what I can spend 10 hours doing..
