It only feels like a few days ago that I finished Project Attero. Enough about that though, Lets get everyone caught up on this one.

For Starters This will be moved over to the Sponsor's Work logs soon enough. With the success of the last project at the Gigabyte ESports lan event that took place here in So Cal in June, I have been able to do this project for a few companies for a special event. I will revel that event in some time, but you all can take guess's though. I was looking to doing something completely different from what we have seen and to expand what I am able to do. The orginal plan was to go with an Orange and White theme, but I scarped that plan today. I want the theme to remain easy enough for most people to do with normal tools but still stand out. This was also the plan for the main sponsor too. Use a simple yet effective case and make a beastly looking rig with it. So with out any more delay here are some of the items I will be using


  • Bitfenix Outlaw case
  • Intel i5 2500k
  • Evga z68 SLI Micro ATX mobo
  • Zotac GTX 570
  • Curical Ballstix Ram 2133 8gb
  • NZXT Hale90 750w PSU
  • NZXT Sentry Mesh Fan Controllers
  • NZXT FZ120mm Fans Non LED
  • Koolance 240 - 20 fpi and 360 -30 fpi cooper rads
  • Koolance 370si cpu block
  • Koolance Compression Fittings
  • Koolance Big Boy 80mmx240 Reservoir
  • Koolance PMP 450 Pump with the PPCS adapter
  • Koolance 570 GPU Block
  • Big City Sleeve - Black and White
  • SSD to be named later

List of things to do...
  • Cut out a place in the roof for a 360 rad and grill
  • Get a custom 360 rad grill
  • Custom cut window
  • Order Mayhems Aurora Supernova
  • Possibly paint a few items
  • Cut the mobo plate and remove the HD cages
  • Build it

Without further ado, here are some pics of what has came in so far.

Well I love the day off, so I can work on this project. Here is some of the work Today.


Here is the top cut out for the 360 rad. It will all be covered by a nice Rad Grill

Here is the case with the mobo plate cut and without the HD cages and drive bays

After taking out the rivets that hold this between the sides of the drive bays, it needs to be modified to allow the 240 rad and fan up front

The other side of the Drive bays

All finished on this one

All finished on this one

This is it all put back together


Checking the clearance.

This is the proposed loop setup. Anyone see anything wrong or a way to improve it.

I made a psu cover for a test fit. I placed the pump where I think It will look the best.

I have done a few minor things so far over the past few days...


I made a cover for the drive bays

A test fitting with the sentry mesh's from NZXT

With the rad temperately in place

I have a few things to do and fix. I got to make sure i got every line nice and straight. I am going to re cut the mobo plate to better suit my needs. I am working on a custom rad grill and psu cover. I need to cut the side panel for the window and install the equipment. I should flush the rads soon though, LOL. Can forget that. Until next time.

Been a little bit busy with work and the heat here is southern california.... at one point 120f... YIKES, it turns the garage into a sauna. Heres a few things that I was able to get going.

After flushing the rads, and letting them dry. I started in on putting them together.

The rad and fans sitting inside its home. I had to change out one of the Koolance fittings, to a 90 to work correctly. I will say this, these Koolance fittings are the best out on the market. It is really easy to put them on since they have a flat spot design for a wrench. I HIGHLY recommend them.

Put the front fans on. The front is shaping up nicely.

Since a did some cutting on the mobo plate and top plate, and cleaning up the lines, I sanded them down to get them ready for paint. I also took the front panel mesh out to paint it.

Here is the mesh installed back into the front panel. Also my little buddy showed up to help out.

This little punk told me to sleeve the pump wires and wire up my vandal switch for this build and I listened.

Then he went off playing around with the res and top panel.

I am awaiting the grill and psu cover to show up. Plus a few more special items.

A small quick update..


So I painted the nobs to the fan controllers. Plus I made some modifications to the plate for the fan controller. They got shortened ALOT..

Installed the vandal switch where I wanted it... I got to repaint the top plate after a really good sand down.

I mounted the rad and res , just to make sure everything was looking good. I ran extra tubing I had to make sure that the clearance was right.

A picture with the fans and rad in place up top.
