[Build Log] Finished - Akvo - Core V1 Custom Watercooled - Page 5

post #41 of 140

Finally, after almost 4 months of waiting, my Noctua IPPC 140mm fans arrived!
I know they are too much overkill for a thin rad, but when i saw this black noctua fans, was love at first sight =)



Also arrived the uv tubes and mayhems x1 concentrated to make the coolant:

This WC casemod project is becoming ambicius...

Yea, I love my new industrial fan as well. Just so much nicer looking that normal Noctuas.
I have had my old one for many (several at least) years, and it's still going strong (non industrial noctua and only 120mm)
My industrial is mostly running at just 530 rpm smile.gif I just turned on my PC when I took this screenshot (pump to the left and fan to the right)

Heh, I only intended to make a quick fix to front panel when I started on mine tongue.gif
That's the fun and curse of it wink.gif

It looks really nice. Is that just a glass ball or something?

Wow! Only 500rpm, no noise at all for sure =)
Yes, that's just a deep blue glass ball, but i'll try to do some effect with it and the blue leds on the top of the case.
My wife loved it, so that's a good sign =)

Just a quick update.
I sent the case to be painted.
At the beggining i was going to paint it by myself, but a friend of mine indicated a car paint professional very skilled that have a refined technique and inks.
So, i gave the core v1 to him, and in about a week it will be done.
I also gave up to the electrolytic paint type because it would add to much "paint thick" to the case, and also because i couldn't find anyone that could do this job.
I'm working on the acrylic panel (learning a lot with a friend that work with it), and ordered the mirror top panel.

Also, the thermal senses arrived. biggrin.gif

Looks great!

Keep up the good work!thumb.gif

Wish I would have done a build log on my recent project. Will do it for the next though!

EDIT: Are you going to run those noctua at full speed? Are those the 300rpm versions?

Thanks man!
I'd started a buildlog for my previous hadron air build, but didn't updated it (at the time I did not have time to do it).
This time is going to be different wink.gif
No, this is the 2000rpm pwm version, and i'm planning to run it under 900rpm for a quiet rig.
