I call it WaterClocker--I fabbed (almost) all the acrylic parts myself--inside (hard to see in pix) is an acrylic duct that draws air in from the front through a 70 cfm 120mm blue LED fan with a stealthed internal speed control (behind removable Lian Li grill) and ports ithe air out the side sfter passing through a large rad.

The only acrylic I bought is the 2 45 degree elbows attached to the rear 80mm green LED fan (antec) that blows air on the chipset/RAM.

A color change (antec chameleon) 80mm fan ports air out the top of the case.

I used Tygon 1/2" lab grade tubing exclusively and sheathed it with cool sleeves (a pain) and stretched it over 5/8" barbed elbows to keep the loop I.D. at 1/2" throughout.

The resevoir is incorporated into the acrylic side panel an is only 3/4" thick to fill the space between the panel and the 5.25 drive bays. It holds aproximately 1 quart of Zerex--the entire loop holds about twice that.

I eliminated the bottom HDD cage to allow for the internal rad box and mounted 2 WD 250 SATA drives in Cool Drive 3 aluminum heatsinks--the fans and LEDs on the Cool Drives are controlled by a stealthed Fan Mate II accessable through the right side panel--but I usually leave them off because I could find no temp difference with them on and they make some noise.

A Lian Li temp and fan monitor fills one 3.5 external bay, I originally had a FDD behind a LIan Li bexel in the other, but as I never use it I blanked it out and mounted an additional HDD inbetween that slot and the temp Moninitor slot(Maxtor 160 8mb cache IDE)--again no specific air cooling for that drive--so I left plenty of space and temps are not a problem.

I sheathed all power cabling in UV reactive green sealed at each end with green heatshrink and then did my best to stealth all of them and keep the interior as clean as possible.

I sheathed the Sata cables in the same way and used a single-device copper-shielded round IDE cable for the Maxtor, and a similar dual device cable for the optical drives.

The DVD drives were chosen for speed and low noise--the Asus QuieTrack Player and Memeorex Dual-Layer Burner are mounted behind Lian Li bezels for a clean exterior that matches the front pane's brushed aluminum exactlyl.

The 80 mm top fan does a good job of keeping all the drives cool without sucking a ton of dust into every orifice. It also offers a quick visual cue as to the case temperature by turning a salmon color as temps rise--turning up the PSU fan to high quickly brings the color to blue (and the mobo temps close to ambient).

I took care to make the entire WC loop accessible including mounting the AquaXtreme 50z 12VDC pump on a special plate of 3/8" sound deadening material (Sound Down) at the case bottom by the expansion card slots. The entire rad assembly easily lifts out for de-dusting which has not proven to be an issue because the Lian Li uses a filter on that intake.

Originally fitted with an ATI AIW 9600, WaterClocker performed well as a media center PC--the passively cooled AIW Vcard ran dual monitors and the Remote wonder and VIVO dongle were fun toys--but as better cards came out I went ahead and upgraded to a non AIW Vcard--however the latest AGP AIW card is looking pretty good--depite it's larger dimensions--so further changes are on the horizon.

The ATI X700 Pro that currently resides in the AGP slot just barely fits, with about a 1/16" inch clearance over the Rad Box ductwork to the nearest cap--I left a slot cover off below the Vcard to enhance cooling--it makes a subsantial difference in load temps.The fan speed is tweaked in ATI tool for a good balance between noise and low temps--ATI tool also auto loads the desired OC profile when 3D apps are detected.

The SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Platinum ex is the only other card for which there is space due to the internal WC set up--it fits within a 1/4" of the pump body.The external module is handy for hooking up my recording studio equipment when laying down some tracks in Cubasis.

An UV CCL is mounted behind the upper flange on the left side illuminating the res and another UV CCL is mounted behind the rearmost flange illuminating the supply/fill/bleed line coming from the res.

I put together my own fill cap using some brass fittings from the plumbers and an O ring to allow for the filling/bleeding operations and to allow for topping off (which has proven unnecessary)--the fitting is held in place by the shape of the upper flange.

Removing 4 screws frees the side panel and allows access to everything--the acrylic ductwork for the Rad and the Rad easily lift out without disconnecting any plumbing.

Care was taken to minimise the lengths of all the tubing and to use as few fittings as possible.

The Coolmax Taurus Silent 140 450 watt PSU runs it all--and features 3 speeds as well as an auto setting--it is one of the quietest PSU's I've seen/heard. the single 140mm fan moves a substantial volume of air through the case eliminating the need for numerous exhaust fans.

All interior panels have been lined with sound deadening material--a large NewEgg.com sticker adorns the backside of the mobo tray, but is only visible with the right side panel removed.

The only adornment to the exterior of the Lian Li case is a Think Geek case badge on the top behind the bezel. (An Overclock.net flame applique would be nice....hint hint)

After nearly 6 months of continuous running, while OCed to 4.0 ghz and Folding for team #37726, WaterClocker has proven to be a reliable and powerful PC. Capable of running Dual Monitors and Surround Sound, with 2 GB of RAM and a half a Terabyte of RAID 0 storage it is also a good all around image/sound edtting tool. In the last Overclock.net Case Mod Competition WaterClocker took 5th place. Although no match for the latest greatest gaming rigs, WaterClocker can easily play any current PC game.

I had a lot of fun thinking about the build and doing all the assembly and modification, and would only change a few small things--I would remake the rad ductwork to accomodate the new larger Vcards out now and I would probably eliminate the fill/bleed tube and go for a sealed loop, as re-filling is a non issue.

Though not entirely silent (the pump has a distinct hum) it gets the job done without too much noise--and is certainly quiter than any aircooled overclocker I have run across.
