The Preparation.

So, here's my plan, I should be getting the water cooling gear soon, it's on express delivery from america .



As you can see, I'm going to be cooling my CPU and GPU in this computer. There will be a red, white and black theme throughout.

This is what I'm starting with, his name is "Oliver". (Ignore my horrible camera skills.)







"Why are you changing this?" I hear you might ask.

My reply: "Eh, I'm kinda bored and I had some money burning a hole in my wallet, why not?"

The Wings.

This will be for when the WC'ing gear arrives. A basic un-boxing of what I got and what I'm going to install.









No updates until tomorrow, for obvious reasons.

The Landing.

Final pic/s.



NOTE: It actually looks a bit different, I had to reroute some tubing, basically the same thing. It looks SO much better in person too, just thought I'd say that

Awesome, subbed. Out of interest, where abouts in Australia are you from and how much did the shipping cost to you?

Thanks for the interest.

I'm a couple hours drive south of Perth, capital city of Western Australia.

It cost 120 US$ for a 15 pound (~7kg) package. It was 100$ for regular shipping.

It was cheaper to get all my stuff shipped over from America than get them all in Australia. Shame about that. I've seen you around a bit and I know you're coming to Australia. Where are you gonna be?
