Hi all, i'm new here, and got my x9 last friday, so i'm joining the club.
Great to see so many posting their builds, and serving as inspiration for others.
I'm going to do an update on my watercooling, and have been looking around for the ideal case for quite some time, but the x9 took the win, over cases like cl & mm.
I find that the X9 has all the space that the others lack, and after recieving it, i'm still a happy bunny :-)
First thing is the wheels
(link to danish wheel provider)
Then i throw in some HWL GTS 420, and have an Aqua computer 420 also in my old rig, that will go to the lower compartment.
Add some noctua fans
Changed the HD drivecase with one from my old nanoxia, to save some space. Plan is that pump goes next to drivecase. Might have to lover the drivecase...but lets see when watertank comes.
Cut and installed mid plate (protective film still on) its a 6mm polycarbonate plate, and i'm going to cover it with some Mirror-Chrome-Vinyl-Wrap in black
. I will use the same wrap on mb-tray.
Thats all i have for now, as im waiting on both watertank, and some acrylic to make front plate, as i'm not going to use the drive bays. this way i can hide the cables from top rads, and possibly also have some intake, but haven't quite made up my mind about that, so lets see what i come up with.
Watertank goes horisontal on topplate, and with pump in lower section, i have to run a bit untraditional routing to keep the hoses from passing from upper to lower section more than 2. times. Routing will then be watertank -> pump -> lower rad -> cpu -> gpu -> upper rads -> watertank.
Made some stealthy passthrughs.
Starting on front wall.
Slowly getting closer, still need res. but good news from supplyer, they finally got to europe from USA, så just ordered one today :-). Still waiting for the wrap, and a piece of polycarbonate that my plexi guy forgot to send in last shipment. If im lucky wrapp will turn up sometime in next week :-)
Finally got the last piece for my frontwall and just finished test fitting it all, and it looks and fit great, also res. shipped from Netherland today, so should be in Denmark by monday :-)
Ready for car wrap :-)
only thing needed now is res.
Car wrap should be here next week if im lucky
Res. all done and ready to get mounted, will do without raiser as my inlet to pump is low
Weeeee Car wrap turned up - looking sharp
It's a wrap :-) - next thing is waiting for some 90 de. fittings, then move system, should be here tomorrow.
Engine room with pump and the 420 from aqua computer.
Starting to look like a pc,
view from other side
Front with pwm hub for the top rads.
Now i only need light for the ress, wich of cause broke during transport, so should be getting a new one by tomorrow. Then it should be ready for some leek testing.
Finally i have startet leak testing, so guess i will finally have my pc back at some time tonight :-)
Up and running :-)
Will post some more pictures tomorrow
Not to happy about the light, got a revoltec RED katode kit, but it's far from red, rather light pink at most.
So gonna get some rgb leds and stuff in tank instead, and control it with the AC farbwerk.
apart from the rather poor threads in the case and missing customer service from TT (No spareparts in Europe) i'm sattisfyed with the result.
Would i do it again ?, probably not, i think next time im gonna build a case from wood, so i wont miss any parts, and get every thing as i want.
