250D "Madeline" Acrylic Loop

Corsair 250D "Madeline" Build Log

Intro:
Hey all, i'm starting a new build now that my 760T Entry to the Corsair PC Domination contest is close to done, and am just waiting for aesthetic acrylic pieces.
I changed the name of the build to my girlfriends name, because she deserves to have a computer named after her tongue.gif, she always has had my back, and i keep her up late at night while i work on my computers, and she bears with me when i freak out when something goes horribly wrong (like a delid), and she is just awesome biggrin.gif (she's also small, like a 250D tongue.gif)
Here she is



Thats us ^


I'm new to posting builds, but for those that are curious, here's a link to my PC Domination Entry, OCN Worklog, and OC3D Rig Post

Plans:
-My plans for this build are to watercool everything possibly feasible in the case, there are 3 stock radiator mounting spots in the case, 2x 80mm, 1x 120/140/180/200, 1x240

-Due to size restrictions, i will be using acrylic tubing due to the fact it will be easier to route the tubing, than to use normal flexible tubing

-There is a vent for intake/exhaust where the video card will be, but since i will not be using it, i will be turning that area into a plexiglass window

-The front of the 250D is like most corsair obsidian cases, where the front panel covers the fans intake, so i will be removing the center area of the front panel, and creating a grill

-Also due to limited spacing, the wiring will also need to be shortened aswell, i will be using one of the smaller available Corsair PSU's that i have at my disposable, which is a AX860

-If room allows, i will be adding a vertical slim slot load drive through the top of the case

A little peek at the goodies, after polishing the smaller blocks and DDC top, adding a fan to DDC, the board, and window spot

WOW, this is some serious blockin' dude! Looks great! You shouldn't have any temperature issues with this one. thumb.gif

And yes, I'll get my 450D started asap. Got a few other issues/projects to get behind me and then I'm gung-ho!
