Lian Li A71FB watercooled worklog. 56K Warning!

bannerhkonupdt.jpg

Hi chaps! I am currently helping a friend building/upgrading and modding his computer case. That means I am gonna share this with you guise, since you all are so sweet. thumb.gif

The plan is simple. Make a A71 house a triple radiator, and cram as much equipment as possible into the case. This case will also house some more watercooling parts later on, so therefore we are making room for that. By the way, this build is NOT sponsed. It might be in the future, but that is not up to me. smile.gif

Plans;
Phase 1:
- Cut out the top panel for radiator and reservoir.
- Make a mount for the MCP355.
- Wait for the stuff i need to drop into my mailbox.

Phase 2:
- Buy new hardware.
- Install second loop for GPU and possibly mainboard.

Phase 3:
- New PSU to sleeve. (MDPC style)
- Details.


The most important tools we are using, is a dremel, random household hardware and a Canon D450.

NEXT; THE GOOD STUFF! No, I am not talking about RedBull..

Parts used;

Current hardware;

- 1x Intel Q6600 SLACR, gonna se how far we are able to push this.
- 1x Asus P5E x38
- 4x OCZ Platinum PC8500 DDR2
- 1x Corsair 750TX
- 2x Samsung HDD 500GB 7200RPM
- 1x Intel 80GB SSD Gen.2
- 1x Powercolor Radeon HD 4870x2


New hardware - HALP! This will be ordered later this year. This COULD be changed, we are open for suggestions!

- Intel i7 2600k.
- Asus Maximus IV Extreme, pref. a Rampage if it ever comes out.
- Corsair Dominator GT, 8Gb. I guess 1866 MHz is more than enough.
- 2x AMD Radeon HD6970, 2Gb
- 2x EK FC6970 Acetal+Nickel
- Some sort of bridge between the GPU's. Bitspower or EK?
- 1x EK or MIPS RAM Freezer for Dominator - Acetal + nickel.
- 1x Laing DDC-pump 1T Plus (Number two).
- 1x 280mm radiator of some kind (Pref. TFC, Coolgate or EK).
- I do not know if I need a new res? There are five threads drilled on the aquatube. The only reason I'd change, was if there would be to much turbulence in the res for two loops. What do you guys think?

Watercooling;

- 1x Lian Li A71FB
- 1x Aquatube Delrin
- 1x Scythe Kaze Server (Black)
- 1x EKWB Supreme HF Cu (This is a dead beauty <3)
- 1x Laing DDC-pump 1T Plus (18 Watt)
- 1x EKWB X-Top V2
- 5x Masterkleer hose 3/8ID (White)
- 1x EKWB Coolstream Rad XT 360
- 2x Bitspower Temperaturføler (G1/4)
- 1x Bitspower LED, 5mm (UV)
- 2x Bitspower T-block (G1/4)
- 2x Bitspower 90` Adapter
- 2x Bitspower 45` Adapter
- 5x Bitspower Stop-plug (G1/4)
- 10x Bitspower barbs (G1/4)
- 1x Bitspower radiatorgrill 360mm (G1/4)
- 1x Bitspower Stop-plug w/LED hole (G1/4)
- 4x Bitspower male to male adapters (G1/4)
- 1x Feser Aqua Ultra Pure Water (1L)
- 1x Feser Base Corrosion Blocker - (50ml)
- 1x AC UV-additive - Clear blue (Don't sure if needed)
- 6x Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120 (1850rpm)




Regards.

Plans moved to first post.

The mailman dumped the first of three packs here today. I guess you want pictures? As Jim Carry spoke in Ace Ventura;

"Alrighty, then!"

mg2087.jpg
The case itself. Poor lass will be stripped down to last itty bit. wink.gif

mg2088.jpg
Internals. The hard drive cages in front will be removed, since a 280 rad will take its place someday.

mg2089.jpg
This HDD cage will be moved to the front bay. The Aquatube will be mounted here.

mg2090.jpg
The CPU-mounting-hole-thingy makes my life better. Seriously. Do not mind the awesome plant. Plastic never dies.

mg2091.jpg
Front door, nothing special.

Some drawings of the cutouts on the top cover. Hope it will turn out nice.
mg2157.jpg
mg2156.jpg
mg2155.jpg
mg2154.jpg
mg2152x.jpg


Now, some "beautyshots".

mg2148s.jpg
mg2111.jpg
mg2105.jpg
mg2104.jpg
mg2147.jpg
mg2139.jpg
mg2136.jpg
mg2126q.jpg
mg2124.jpg
mg2117n.jpg
mg2123.jpg



More updates will come, presumably tomorrow. Hope I will be able to finish the cutouts on the top. My dremel is a bit sketchy.

Regards.

Yeah, that’s the question – where do we start? Have you ever tried cutting (Technically, it can’t be called “to cut”, can it?) super-frozen ice-cream with a silver spoon? That’s what it feels like to cut 2mm aluminum with a Dremel that refuses to charge properly. Anyhow, we skipped that, and instead went on to take some pictures for you guys to feast upon. The bad news is that we need to have that top plate finished before we can do anything at all. Imagine, use one hour to cut out one single hole for one of the three fans.

Thanks a bunch, mate smile.gif Hope more people find interest in this thread.

A couple of packages from two different warehouses turned up today. Nothing to do since we are waiting for the GTAP15 and some male-to-male fittings anyway. This is what fell through the door; I hope you guys enjoy the eye candy! thumb.gif




Scythe Kaze Server. Very surprised of the quality! I do like the "auto" mode, works splendid with bitspower temp sensors. smile.gif

EKWB CoolStream XT 360. Smooth finish! Exited to see how this performs.

Masterkleer tubing. Not much to say, I think the white is gonna stand just fine to the build.

Hi! Finally here with more content, my ISP has been struggling with some sort of technical issue.. rolleyes.gif Yeah right.

By the way, does the rest of you also have technical issues? Seems like none is reading this since I haven't got any replies.. poke.gif

Anyway, we made some progress this few last days, but we've been kind of busy, so it isn't a awfully lot we've done. We have still to plan the last bits and pieces in this stage of the build, but we are steadily getting there.

Aluminum is a PITA to cut through with a dremel that needs a 5 hour recharge every ten minutes. We have talked to a friend of ours that work at a metal workshop, hopefully he will help us out. This is how far we managed to get before the frustration was all over us. biggrin.gif
mg2428.jpg

HDD's and the SSD wil be mounted in the 5,1/4" bays. Much "cleaner" that way.
mg2423p.jpg


Water block installed. Shiny! thumb.gif
mg2424ki.jpg


Premounted the pump in the bottom between PSU and front fans as of now. Don't know if this will be the final location for it..
mg2422w.jpg


Some parts arrived today. AP-15's and some accessories. cool.gif
