Antec Lanboy Water Yellow

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hello, I thought I would share my first water cooling experience and a first time sleever as well. I've been reading these forums for awhile now and decided to show you guys and gals what I did during thanksgiving weekend. I only wish I had a better camera.

The size of the fittings and tubing are 3/8ID 1/2 OD. Ok so here's a list of stuff I used.

Chassis:
Antec Lanboy Air Yellow

Pumps and Fittings+Tubing+Coolant:
Swiftech MCP 655 (Variable)
16 Enzotech Compression fittings
5 Enzotech 45 Degree angled fittings
1 Enzotech Stop fitting (For Drain Port)
Bitspower D5 / MCP655 Mod Kit - Black Sparkle
Bitspower D5/MCP655 Pump Replacement Top Version Black
Bitspower G1/4 Matte Black CaseTop Water-Fill SET
Feser UV Reactive Yellow Tubing
Feser one UV Reactive Fluid
Orange
Primoflex anti kink coils

Waterblocks+Reservoir+Radiator:
EK HF Supreme Nickel+Acetal
EK-FC460 GTX - Acetal + Nickel
Phobya Balancer 150 Black Nickel Reservoir
Thermochill TA120.3


Sleeving+Fans+Lighting+Misc:
MDPC-X (Yellow Sleeve+Shrink)
Akasa Viper 120mm
Sharpie Oil Based White Pen Paint
Demciflex Triple Radiator Filter
Lamptron 4 port power inverter
2X 8 inch UV CCFL

UN Designs Radiator Bracket


Antec Lanboy Air


Started off sleeving a PSU 24 pin extension cable, once I received my sleeving. The multicolored cables provided a challenge so I had to paint each cable white with the sharpie stick to avoid the opacity problem. The little bend peice of cardboard you see there is what I used to measure the heatshrink and cut it flat. That made all my heatshrink consistent in size and shape.





Once I had the feel for it I decided to sleeve the entire PSU. Yes I opened up the PSU and sleeved all the way inside. I removed 1 of the 8 pin wires to provide room in the PSU's opening since the sleeving caused the wired to be much thicker. I also cut the edge of the PSU's cable opening to make the round hole in to an oblong hole I'll try to get pictures of this later. The PSU is already installed and I would have to move some stuff around to get it.

I installed the Dressup Kit for the pump and mounted it on the bottom of the case. I also sleeved the extremely long cable of that pump and did some cable management on the floor of the case.


Shortly after I removed my old CPU heatsink and installed the HF Supreme.

Then I installed the GPU waterblock and backplate. Going to clean that dust later


I had difficulty installing the reservoir since I did not have a firewall like most cases. I custom made 2 brackets in order to mount the reservoir.


Dremelled a hole at the bottom to make a T-Line drain port


Installed the Radiator with the 3 Akasa Viper Fans on Pull Configuration




Installed the Lamptron Power inverter and then the Harddrive at the bottom.

I didn't have room for the harddrive enclosure anymore so I had to place it on the bottom with rubber feet to raise them so I could remove the drives out of the enclosure.


Some Cable management at the rear. Still Deciding if that's how I want my molex cables hence I have not sleeved it yet.





And there you have it, Antec Lanboy Water


I did a 24 hours leak test and found a pinhole leak on my Rad. I'm going to have to RMA it. Also I wasn't able to take pics of the lighting at night since I do not have enough UV CCFL's inside. I'm ordering more and I'll post more pics as I progress. This was all done i the past 7 days so I still have alot of work left to do. I also ran out of anti kink coils so I wasn't able to anti kink the tube from the Res->Pump.

Light it up!!






Leak is fixed. Ill post more pics later

I wish the new lanboy air looked like the older ones... just more modern, oh well I guess.




Nice work though.

Damn nice first posts and you listed all the parts that you used also. Your pics will make people contemplate getting a lanboy just for watercooling. Very well done.

Great looking and very efficient-looking loop. Nice and short, no tight bends or unnecessary fittings, etc. And it's almost a sin to hide all those beautiful cables like that.

Great job, now get that rad fixed! A little spot of JB Weld should do it. Rep+

Love the yellow sleeving. Very nicely done.

It's a shame you have to RMA that rad though.
