    Lian Li PC-A77 mod: Project[Thessa]

    Ok..A little introduction if i may..Basically, the goal is to watercool the case all internal without ruining the case's simple and minimalistic design. Yet maintaining a cool and quite system. The system will be overclocked to its highest stable clock(3.4ghz) on stock vcore.

    So i present Project[Thessa] < named after my significant other as a tribute for financing this whole project. LOLZ! ;-D

    All Mods are done by tantric @http://www.tantricmodz.com
    Probably the No. 1, if not the best modder in the Philippines!

    Loop 1: Ek Res 250> MCP655>TC PA120.3> Q6600> NB> SB (EVGA 680i)
    Loop 2: Ek Res 150> MCP655> BIX II 240 > 2 x EVGA 8800gts 512mb (Will Be changed later to BIX II 360)

    Pics!
    Top Mounted PA120.3




    Lasercut Acrylic PA radgrill



    Powdercoat done..mounted the res and top rad




    front rad mounted in custom hd cage bracket


    window cut


    misc mods




    thats it for now..some minor adjustments will be done later..

    the parts i will be using

    tubes will be replaced to a tygon 3400 1/2id 3/4od on compression fittings on the cpu block. the rest of the fitting will be the dangerden fatboyz

    good looking mods. I like the pump emerging out of the bottom plate.

    not crazy about the mirror... to me, it doesnt fit w/ all the flat black.

    Mirror? Where? Down the side of the bays? I think that's just a piece of black acrylic to cover the metal up.

    Did you take the case apart for painting?
    What tool did you use for the round holes on the mobo tray? A hole saw? Did you cut the holes without a wood support on the back of the tray?

    its just a black opaque acrylic just to cover the front bay cages..i can always paint it flat black to match the matte black powdercoat.

    yes it was taken apart for powdercoating. the holes on the mobo is already there when you buy the case except for the long hole near to ek 250 res and the buttom 2 circle holes. used a hole saw for that one.

    the tubing going to the 2nd res (small one) is to long maybe you should remount your res somewhere else to make the tubing shorter

    ive got a quick question. how come you're not putting the triple rad in the loop with the 2 vid cards and the double on the cpu loop? wouldnt 2 8800gts cards put out more heat then a cpu,nb,sb? i guess it depends on when you're swapping it out for a bix 360.
