    Power to size ratio has never been pushed as hard as this build. What a wonderful piece of work you have here! :thumbup:

    What is the ambient temp like in the case? does everything breath ok with the hot air from the radiator venting into the case? Also what's the noise like?

    Not a fan of the questionable PSU mods. There is a reason why the LV and MV stages are kept away from each other. Open ended wires stuck to the inside of the case aint smart either. Guessing that your not licensed ?

    As for the rest, tight squeeze but it's in there now and working, just needs a LAN-bag to carry it.

    I'd pay for someone to build me a PC like that, but so cramped everything is. Must feel like a heater being next to that. Hmmm.

    I'd pay for that too! It looks epic. Much better with the inside painted.

    Thanks guys :thumbup:

    One's an Intel SSD (no heat), the other is a Seagate Momentus XT (SSD/HDD hybrid....very low power)....so to answer your question, no. The storage solution doesn't warm up at all. The PSU stays pretty cool too :)

    i've done this myself, cut wires, and if you have a look his got single black heatshrink over the ends. even a clean cut with pliers wouldn't cause any issues, unless you had them sitting touching end to end.
    I'd love to see the 'licenses' of every person that's opened up a PSU or cut wires. or even sleeved it.

    Nice work. Its like a shuttle with some more awesome thrown in. Just the sorta thing I like really ;)

    A small bit of advice with that water cooling kit - you have the intake and outtake tubes at the top.

    Because the corsair system is not actually maintenance free like they say, your water level will actually drop, sooner rather than later.

    Problem is, the pump is going to suck dry air because the intake is at the top, like so:

    -O------O-
    RADIATOR
    BOTTOM

    I would recommend having it on its side or upside down to maximise the amount of time you have before needing to rip it out and top it up.

    Always have the intake that goes to the pump as low as possible on the rad. Otherwise you end up with a dead pump and fried CPU.

    Again, nice work. Really like this kind of mod!

    Thanks for the tip Ash....what's your source?
    Also, if you were to perform maintainence...how would you do it? There's no fillport. Would you add one? :confused:

    Also, keep in mind, the rad is aliminum, and the block is copper making this a mixed metal loop, for anybody who does wish to flush the system, ensure you refill it with the proper additives to prevent corrosion ;)
