I'm missing most of the plastic pieces like the sides and top. I still have the face and the frame I modified to fit everything.

Have a look at this - is this the same model ( I am not selling it )

its deff an American model as it has 120 voltage rating smile.gif I have been using the other one daily for about 10 years plugged into to the 240 socket .
It came with a 5.1 sound system which seems to be the only difference from my view ? I never used those because they were marked 110v .... I will plug them in later and see if they work or go pop ....

This is a rough layout of what I think I want to do for this build. I'm going to lay this out as best I can and I looking for any suggestions on how possible this is.


So there is a cut threw in this case that separates the drive bays from the rest of the computer. When I saw this I made me want to run a bunch of Liquid cooling tubing threw this section of the case to be displayed. The size of the hole in the cut threw I will make in the case will be about 162mm x 95mm, this should be enough for one resivior and a few 1/4 pieces of tube


I want to mount two pump/resivor combos upside down with one stopping just short and one fully extended into the other portion of the case. I don't know what to use here as far as brands so recommendations will be helpful.


Next I have two locations for radiators. the one located in the rear has a space of 130mm x180mm so it shouldn't be to hard to find something. However in the front it used to be two 5.25 bays so the space is a lot more limited. I measured 165mm x 104mm up front and was thinking of using two 40mm radiators.


Finally in this sketch I did not include tube routing because I wanted opinions of what is best looking to most piratical. should the pumps be between each device?

It's done!, sorta

Guys, It's been a long time coming for this build but i can finally say that I have it in a state I'm happy to show you all. I never forgot about this, in fact its kept me up at night, sometimes from neglect, sometimes from trying to solve design problems. The parts spec'd out in 2015 are almost all gone expect the 980ti. Here are some final shots! I was so close to completing this build and then I had to go on a months long business trip, so I packed it up and took it with me! I still want to make this change over to hard tubing eventually, and when I do go hard tubing I will upgrade to a 3950x and hold out to see what next years graphics cards look like.

A lot of this build wouldnt be possible if not for my buddy calvin who cnc'd up a mount for the water-pump and reservoir. And also I got a 3d printer in 2018 that made it possible to mount most of the rads and the power supply.

Current parts are:
Ryzen 5 2400g
Asus Crosshair VIII Impact
T-Force Pro Dark DDR4 3200
Evga 980Ti Classified
Ekwb everything.
