[Build Log] Lian Li PC-TU200B Water cooled CPU/GPU.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My first mini ITX build. I chose the Lian Li based on convenience and it was on sale rolleyes.gif

Parts:

Case:
1. Lian Li PC-TU200B mITX

PSU:
1. Corsair SF600

Motherboard:
1. ASRock Fatal1ty X370 AM4 mITX

CPU:
1. Ryzen 1700X

SSD:
1. Samsung 960 EVO m.2 nvme 500Gb

RAM:
1. G.Skill TridentZ DDR4 2400 16Gbx2
- CAS 15-15-15-35, 1.2V

GPU:
1. Radeon Fury

Cooling:
1. Noctua NF-A14 iPPC-3000 PWM
2. Swiftech H140-X AIO
3. Noctua NF-A4x20 PWM
4. Noctua NF-A4x10 PWM

Keyboard/Mouse:
1. Logitech K750
2. Razer Orochi

Was trying to fit all these into the case...will need to mod a bit.




1. Gutted the internals and removed the HD bay. Then added rubber spacers to feet.



2. Took out the ODD bay and mod it to fit the SF600. Also cut out the back MB plate to make room for m.2 heatsink. Cut the GPU support bar that came with the case and remount it on bottom of case.






3. Was planning to add Noctua 40mmx10mm fan on back to cool the m.2 heatsink, however, the heatsink was too thick and could not fit. Will look for lower profile heatsink in the future and drill some holes into the back side panel.




4. In goes the MB, GPU, and the front 140mm with CPU radiator.







5. How it looks after a little cable management.



6. And...turned on.



Future project will be to add a tempered glass to the front side panel. I already added a silicone sleeve to the latch that opens the side panel to cushion the glass.




I will install OS and see how much I can OC this little guy.

Cheers,

Du

Nicely put together. Well done cables. I hope you enjoy it.

Here it is after quite a bit of cable management and remounting the PSU with more nuts for stability.




After clearing the cables from the back side panel, there is excellent airflow through the front 140mm fan. Now there is enough positive pressure from the front and negative pressure from the back for ample airflow. May not need the 40mm fan for the m.2 ssd.

Wow! I am very impressed with the creativity and thought that was put into this build. Who'da thunk you would be able to use the ODD cage as a PSU mount. thumb.gif

My only criticism would be how you are routing your PSU cable out of the case. I would recommend installing a passthrough cable plug, similar to what I did on my TU-100 mod.

This would clean up the build a bit (IMO), and make it so you don't have a permanent power cable sticking out of the case.

Nice, that looks very clean! I was planning on using the sliding metal plate in the back (for securing the GPU plate) to close tight and retract the excess cord inside the case when traveling, so that only the plug itself is sticking out the back. I'm also thinking of adding 3x40mm fans in the ODD front panel for more airflow, or a nice lcd/steampunk fan rpm display.

Stay tuned for more mods. tongue.gif

Added 3x 40mm fans to the front ODD bay.


Added a PWM fan controller for the extra fans.


After more cable management and turned it on.



Last thing I will do is to figure out whether I want a full tempered glass panel or have a cut-out of the aluminum side panel and fit the tempered glass within the frame, which would make it easier since I can just snap it back on using the original push pin/lock instead of trying to add one to a full tempered glass. Any suggestions?


Cheers,

Du

Really digging the 40mm fans on the front, definitely making that 5.25" bay useful for something thumb.gif

I would suggest option 3: custom acrylic side panel (similar to what I did). It will save you a lot of money, and it doesn't add a lot of extra weight to the side panel. I don't 100% trust the strength of the side panel retention mechanism, so I am hesitant to recommend glass.

You can pick up both tinted and clear sheets for around $10-15 on Amazon.

Or you could probably find a colored sheet, if that tickles your fancy. smile.gif
