It was plenty to function as an exhaust. Speaking of which, you guys know that this sucker works on it too? You'll have to punch some holes for exhaust though.

Since this case is so light on bays (but part the reason I love it), I was wondering about using this item from Coolerguys to control the fans on the top. What do you all think?

In your original post, one of the photos has the front fan labeled as an intake, but in stock configuration it's an exhaust.

What's with the Honda? Did you post the wrong photo by accident or were we supposed to draw a parallel about good things in small packages?

I'll spare you the photos of my stock A05NA. Suffice to say I think it's a great case and I will be taking a Dremel to it eventually.

Check this thread (all of it is interesting reading), but particularly this page:
http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1133290&page=167

Part way down the page, someone has a T-60F from a mid tower on top of his A05. He mentions that it takes a little work -> anyone have any idea how much work it would take?

I don't mind loosing the audio / front USB connectors at all, but I like the fan inserts.

could someone tell me how to modify a 240 rad?? Whats the spacing needed? Is there a template?
post #58 of 3785
Im working on mine right now. I got the case about a month ago. Im still working out some layout issues, but the build should take off here in a few weeks.
Is it alright if i use the Lian Li PC-A05 and NB Club banner from the OP in my build log?

This is from my build log
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...5nb-fully.html

Thought i would start a work log for this project. Im looking at a time frame for completion in the next 3 months.

Im currently planning on a fully water cooled setup in a Lian Li A05. As some of you know this is a fairly small case to begin w/.

PC Components
Mobo: ASUS Rampage III Gene
CPU: Intel Core i7-950
RAM: G.SKILL PI 6GB DDR3 1600, Cas 6
GPU: EVGA GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked EE 1GB, SLI(unless something better comes along)
PSU: CORSAIR Professional Series AX850 850W
HDD: (2)Crucial RealSSD C300 64GB Sata 6.0(RAID 0), WD 640GB AAKS
DVD: Slot load drive using a Lian Li EX-553B bay converter

Water Cooling Components
CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee GTZ
Chipset: EK full board block
GPU's: EK FC460 full coverage block, EK Bridge dual serial
Rads: Black Ice Stealth 360, Black Ice Stealth 240 or 120(still thinking on this one)
Pump: Swiftech MCP655 w/ Bitspower D5 Mod top V2
Res: FrozenQ Liquid Fusion 160 ml Reservoir - UV Red
Tubing: Feser UV red (haven't decided on 3/8" or 1/2")
Fans: Yate Loon Medium speed

Case Mods
-Cut top of case for 360 rad
-Cut bottom of case for 240 or 120 rad
-Cut bottom of case for PSU intake
-Cut mobo tray for cpu back plate
-Install red ring 22mm Bulgin and red dot 16mm Bulgin switches to front panel
-Single wire sleeve psu and shorten most of the cables
-Fabricate an alum psu cover and back panel to hide cables

Some questions that i have for all of you watercooling pro's.
1. Would it be ok to use 3/8" tubing w/ this many blocks? Im just worried about tight bends.
2. Im planning on going res>pump>cpu>chipset>120 or 240 rad>gpu's>360 rad> then back to the res. Would a 120 rad be enough to go in between the cpu/chipset and the gpu's ? The cpu will be overclocked, but the gpu's prob wont be much over their stock setting. A 120 rad fit a lot better than a 240 in a case this small.

First off a side view of the inside of the case. I have removed the hard drive cage from the front, wont be needing it. The SSD's will be mounted in the drive bay adapter w/ the optical drive and the storage drive will be in the 3.5" bay.


This is some layout on the bottom of the case. Trying to figure out if a 240 rad will fit. If i use a 240 rad, i will most likely have to remove the rear fan. The 240 rad is nearly 11" long


Here is the drive bay area. The 360 rad will use up most of the top bay. Im planning on putting a fan controller in the front of the top bay. Idk if ill be able to keep the I/O ports where they are now. i may have to mod the front bezel for them. The other 5.25 bay will house a slim optical drive and 2 SSD's. The 3.5" bay will have a WD 640GbAAKS.


I dropped in a spare psu cause its the same dimensions of the Corsair. Wanted to get an idea of where i could mount the pump. Keep in mind that im planning on using a Bitspower Mod top. So Mounting it under the drive bay wont be an issue w/ tube routing.


Another view of the pump mount. Its placement will block the fan, but i would keep it near the 'dead zone' of the fan.


Once i figure out the bottom rad issue, ill be ordering rads this week along w/ the bulgin switches.

Here, print these out:
http://www.mnpctech.3dpixelnet.com/p...plate_15mm.pdf

What other mods did you want to do to the 240?


On another note, just so no one else does it and wastes money.
Because of how the mounting ring is used for the power supply in this case, the silicone vibration reducers don't work (could with trimming?).

I'm trying to think about what I could put on the support for the powr supply to cushion it a bit (e.g. felt, rubber, etc).

It's quite the spacious beast (that's an AMD Quadfather board)

I'd also like to add that the side panels for the G50 fit this fella as well, P-Pcs offered it for a time with the G50 side panel (I purchased mine with both sets of panels).
Oh Man. This is Beautiful. I love the handles from MNPCTEK.com. Those make the case look wicked Nice.. Rep 1 for the pictures man. I love them.
