    New Case TIME! - 56k user warning, many LARGE pics

    So I've been mia for the last week, hiding in a dark lab, with a few monkeys transplating my PC into new Mountain Mods chassis. Below is from old to new with subtitles.. in 3d.. okay maybe not 3d, but the best the iPhone 4 camera could do.



    New Parts are here!, bottom, cross bars, back peices and 5.25 trays, along with both motherboard trays


    Front and back walls


    Front, bottom, and back together


    Its late, and I had to work in the morning, so me attempts to mock what the inside of the case will look like


    The old, thermaltake case, moded to hell, dual rads and fans mounted in angle iron to the right


    Close up of the old system/setup


    Motherboard in its tray, some of the cards installed, getting cpu ready for a new application of diamond thermal compound


    Hardware fully mounted, purging / filling of the liquid system



    Tear down and insert into new case


    Still filling


    From the left side, where future new pc will be going



    PC Powersupply installed, finishing wire up to actual pc hardware


    Everything wired up, ya its a mess, powersupply has waaay to long of cables for this case


    All finished


    Case is now in its new home
    Ignore the paper, i didnt have any 5.25 blackouts on hand, so tape + paper had to do for the moment.

    And thats it, this PC is on the right hand side, the new I7 I will eventually be building will go on the left side, which in the last picture you'll see as the empty side

    Specs:
    M/B: Asus P5E Deluxe
    CPU: Q9560 OC'ed to 4ghz
    Mem: 8GB DDR2-1200mhz
    HDDs: Striped 2x64GD SSD's, 1TB Seagate, 320GB Seagate
    Controller: Acera 1210 256MB cache for SSD array
    Video: ATI 5970
    Tubing: 1/2 inch ID Tygon
    Coolant: Fester Non-conductive
    Rads: 2x Black Ice 280's (I think)
    Fans: 4x120mm each at 78cFm @ full speed

    Life: Still none

    All I can say is [the understated] WOW! That ain't a server case, that's a cube, man! What does "Life: Still none" mean? I'm guessing meant about you and not the system

    It's a water cooled setup, except instead of water he is using a special liquid. The purple liquid is a non conductive liquid that helps cool the CPU.

    That's probably the secret sauce, and the recipe is under lock and key.

    Generally non-conductive liquids are made from plant by products like corn oil, and so on.

    why do you need a life, when you have a girlfriend and a computer:-). Just be sure to marry her, so she is stuck with you for the rest of her life XD.
