    Antec 900 Internal Water Cooling Build Log**

    I just started working tearing my computer apart today. All I have done so far is mount the harddrives to make enough room for the 240 radiator in the front of the case. When it is finished both radiators will be internal.

    Build plans include:
    both radiators internal (I will not be using a shroud on the 120 rad)
    interior of case painted black
    gpu is being take out of the loop
    white tubing
    Gentle typhoon 1850 rpm fans
    sleeving
    new gpu coming soon

    Completed:

    Before:

    Newly mounted drives:


    Thread will be updated daily with pictures
    comments and opinions are appreciated

    Fillport:


    Front 240:


    Rear 120:


    Everthing:










    A couple coats of primer on top of the self etching primer.





    Gentle Typhoons x 3 I loved these fans since the moment I took them out of the box they just feel quality and man are they quiet.

    Thanks for the kind words and you can hardly see me in the picture haha. Anyone who is familiar with paint I have a few questions. I did 2 coats of self etching primer then re sanded the case with 600 grit followed by one more coat of self etching primer then 3 coats of a black sandable primer. Does that sound like it is going to be durable enough? I am debating on clear coating it because I am not sure if it is already good enough plus I really like the finish.

    Is he naked in some pic? Haha, I can't find it... and I guess that's a good thing.
    Signatures make my posts look huge... but I'm not humble enough to completely remove my signature, so I kept this note explaining it.
