[BuildLog] Thermaltake x9 - Custom - Watercooled - PaYFrog Customs

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello, I want to share with you what i do in my freetime. I´m building pc´s for some of my good friends and this is one of them. It is still in progress and i´ve done some work actually.

Specs:

Tower - Thermaltake x9
Cooling - Custom Watercooling with 2 loops

Hardware:

CPU - 5930K
GPU - MSI GTX980Ti Gaming 6G (2x)
MB - MSI Gaming 9 ACK
RAM - HyperX Predator 2800mhz (4x8gb)
PSU - Corsair RM1000i (Custom cable)
SSD - ??
HDD - ??

Cooling:
CPU - EK-Supremacy Evo Nickel
GPU - EK-FC980 GTX Ti Acetal+Nickel
MB - EK-MOSFET MSI x99 Gaming Nickel
RAM - EK-RAM Monarch x4 Nickel / EK Ram Monarch Module Black
Pump - EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - (incl. Pump) / EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - (Plexi incl. Pump)
AGB - EK-RES X3 150Lite
Radiator - EK-CoolStream XE 480

work in progress.



I did the first test for the positions of the components. The inner of the Case will be coverd with Acryl. The front will get a special feature.










Then I made a few components ready for watercooling. One graphics card cooler was still missing.







I decided to cut some parts of the case cause it doesn´t fit for me. For the graphiccards backplate i made some decals as my friend wished.









Then i did some work to clean up the inner of the case.




A great thanks for a nice support to Nanoxia, the CoolForce angle fits quiet nice. To fit the motherboard I made some holes in the acryl plate of the mainboardtray. The pumps are already mounted.








Now you´re up to date. More ist coming soon.

Today I worked on the front of the case. The first thing I made was a frame for the display that will be insert in the case. I found some aluminium profiles that I didn´t used at another project. They fitted perfectly with the display. I had to make some changes at the profiles, so that they fit in the front. Between the profile and the case I will insert a 3mm black acryl plate.

I did some work today. At the front of the case I made a cut for the cables. In order ti hide them I lead the cables unter the acryl plate of the pumps. The power supply and the HDMI cable for the display are already laid.
After this was done, I have begun milling the first cable openings into the acrylic plate under the motherboard. I am not finished yet and still needs a little reworking. Everything is just done by hand and I am not a CNC milling machine.

Short update. Most of the acryl plates in the inner of the case are cutted and fixed. The screws will be changed and combined with washers from Grosumodz. The cables of the pumps are now sleeved and out through the bottom. Between the floors, I cleaned up a bit. The edges of the acrylic plates still get a chamfer, then they can already be painted. The case will be painted again, when everything else is finished.

interesting design on front lcd, but will it impede airflow on the front mesh?

I don't think that will impede airflow any worse than most front panels. This is a nice clean build so far with a lot of attention to detail. Good job and keep on killing it man!!! I wish I had the patience and steady hands for this kind of stuff.
