Update 14 - Old case gone


Well this is a big step. I have pulled all my hardware out of the old case. It will be running on my desk until the new case is ready to accept the hardware. Tomorrow i will be draining the WC loop and working out the mounts for the radiator in the new case. I think after that i just need to get the HDD mounts ready and i should be good to paint. I also got a bit of money today for doing some odd jobs so i will have enough for painting

The 1156 mobo on the new motherboard tray. I needed to work out what extra cable management holes i needed.


I had to take a few pictures to compare the old and new case size wise. such a huge difference.


It doesn't look like it here but the new case is actually a good two inches shorter in length.


My computer set up on a box.


And my desk is also very messy now. After the changing of cases my room looks like there was a bomb inside a couple of cases. Parts are everywhere so i gotta sleep on the floor again tonight (or just not sleep )


Stay tuned for some radiator goodness tomorrow

I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. I just put my rig together a couple of days ago, and my office is still recovering from that.

I will be painting everything white with a blue stripe through it. I am also considering doing some sort of design. Just not sure yet.

Serious respect for having the motivation and energy to do this sort of stuff
I can't even be arsed to lap my CPU properly, or even get off the couch to piss to be honest, so anyone that actually does stuff and has energy amazes me.

I'm easily amazed... and smell like piss.

Update 15 - Water cooling parts and radiator mount


Well today i stripped my water cooling from the old case and mounted the radiator. I am unsure at the moment if i will put the water cooling in straight away. This is because i have been running on air cooling for the past 12 or so hours and i am loving the silence without my pump on. So im thinking i will run air cooling until i can afford a new pump.

The old case and water loop.


Starting to drain it.


I dont know why i was taking photos of me draining the water.


Radiator gone.


The parts in all their custom glory.


Next i cut out the top part of the case to accept the radiator.


Then i got a couple of fiberglass sticks.


And some screws.


And made a mount for the radiator.


I got a little bit further, i had two of the radiator bolts in and was about to do the last two when i had to rush off and go pick up a monitor (dual screen FTW). The mount is very solid so i dont think i will have any problems.

I think im just about ready to do some painting Stay tuned.
