Small tiny update - I'm not the best at Google SketchUp, but I've managed to whip up something interesting.. Here's what it is so far.



Tubing route is still being thought of, but i almost have that figured out.

Stay tuned!

What do you guys think, buy Bitspower Enhanced Multi Link fitting or the EK HDC 16mm... One thing stopping me from bitspower is how small the installation height is... Would it still look good?

Okay I'm not sure how big I should say this update is, but I'm quite excited about it!

First off, bought myself an NZXT Phantom 820 Matt Black... For only 150 AUD.. $165 down from R.R.P!! Anyways, shortly after that I received a chunk of my hardware, so a couple of photos for that and final temporary setup until about a week tongue.gif Here are the pictures!


New parts!


EK Monarchy adapters



Delicious looking memory block...


EK Coolstream PE 240mm Radiator



EK Coolstream PE 360mm Radiator



Another EK product, Supremacy Evo (as you can tell I'm a HUGE fan of EK)




Degutting begins! Look at the size difference!!






Changing the PCI slot covers with the Phantom 530 ones because they look better


Much better!



All interface connections, SATA and PSU have been connected



Final temporary configuration thumb.gif

Hope you liked this update! Many more like this are coming wink.gif

Put an order on 5 Aerocool Dead Silence Blue 120mm for the radiators, as well as the Pump, Pump Top and Fittings... All I need now is the Rigid tubing and dye, then we can really get some things going. The tubing I need is only available in one store in Australia (PLE) and the next time they restock is on the 20th of October.. *cries*

On a good note, the Reservoir came in!





Next update when either the fans or next bulk come through biggrin.gif

Yea it's going to have a nice even bend, get a G1/4 tapped in with my drill so I can lead a hard tube there with easy maintenance, without having to take the whole tube off to remove the shroud. It will cover the bottom portion to hide the pump that's going under. Will be drilling ventilation holes in a stylish pattern to allow ventilation.
