Hello OCN members! This is my first thread and work-log on OCN. The rig will be for a friend who wants to get his feet wet but does not know how. My friend currently has an Xclio A380 case, which is not a bad case, but it’s not meant for water-cooling. Instead of modding his current case to accommodate a loop, I suggested the Switch 810 case. It was a long shot since he doesn't like white cases. To my surprise, he likes the case! So here I am!

Enough Chit-chat, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty. biggrin.gif

The bottom front mesh.
A teaser pic.
The top panel has small mesh on both sides for ventilation.
Just an average pic.

I'll probably only have two weeks for this build as my friend is a die hard BF3 player. So I'm sure he'll be having BF3 withdrawls the first day I take his rig. biggrin.gif I hope you guys enjoy and I'm open to any suggestions or questions through out my build.
