Hi Folks

I was not planning a new build for this first semester and had quite a different idea of what I was going to do next (a heavily modded medium case with custom divider and a lot of integration - reservoir, pumps and so on). But I could not pass on this awesome case and have a relatively portable small pc but at the same time quite powerful and hopefully nearly silent. So here I am with a BH4 bullet ordered (I think I was the first one but I might be mistaken) and already the first pieces arriving for it. Here is the plan and components:

The plan - Mod the case to include a top window as well as a front window. On the front window a custom build acrylic reservoir (either rectangular or perhaps circular) will be fitted. I am toying with several ideas here including a custom made mask at one end of the spectrum or on the other hand no frontal window as long as the reservoir would be still visible and have an effect on frontal view. Despite this not be set in stone yet the loop order and components placement are already done (in my mind).






Components:

MB - EVGA x99 micro2
CPU - Likely the 5960x (ended up with the 5830 instead)
RAM - 32 Gb trident black and white
SSD - 1 1tb samsung evo and 1 Intel 750 1.2 TB (pci-e) - If pci-e could not fit in a pleasant loop will be replaced with a samsung 940 m2 SSD (512 GB - scavanged from Chessboard)
PSU - Silverstone 500w SFF-L
GPU - 1 Radeon nano with Aquacomputer block smile.gif


Cooling
1 d5 Aquacomputer USB 1 EK PWM DDC
1 Ek revo top
12 mm acrylic tube (thick walled)
1 custom reservoir (it will be a cute little big thing)
Clear liquid with blue/green tint to it
120 mm Silverstone 15mm slim fans (or GTs custom Painted)
1 Magicool 240 mm rad on top
c47 and 45 and 90 fittings
1 Heatkiller cpu block (III) ek Evo block
1 ekwb Titan X block
1 ekwb SSD Intel 750 block

the name of the build is homage to two good movies I like it from previous times....Let's see if you guys can guess. At the same time is a good play with the words for such a small and potentially powerful case/system
