Default Apollo4g's MM Horizon Case Picture Log (Finished)

8800GTS, EK 8800GTS waterblock 640/2020
Maze 4 NB block
2 x EK MOSFET blocks

X-Fi XtremeMusic
Corsair HZ 620 PSU
Asus P5B-Deluxe WiFi
Mountain Mods Horizon Case (Sky White)


I love the case, it came packed exceptionally well with no scratches and a perfect layer of powder coat.

It was a breeze to to all the hardware in with all the space i had. But i could say less about the 2 loops i had to fit in there.

Even though i had alot of space that 3/4" tygon tubing is really thick and takes up lots of space.

My case was bought at NCIX.com btw.

Amazing looking build!!!!

How long did it take you to put it all together?

Lastly.... any idea how much fluid is running through the loops? There's an awful lot of tubing going on there... I'm guessing close to a full 2 liters.

I love the color combination- with so few choices out there, it's nice to see something different. It looks ICY!

That's very impressive! How much did that case set you back? Do you have to pay extra for powder coating? The next step up you can take is putting a phase unit in the case =D

Thanks!
It took about a good 2 days to put togeher, a total of 24 hours i would say.
Im a freek on cable management so i really had to have everything the way i wanted.

About 2.5L running through both loops, it was a pain to bleed and the case is just so heavy now with everything in it lol.
I change my part often so its going to be a pain in the a** doing it all over again with a new motherboard!

I bought it from NCIX at CAN$399, nope it came with everything included except the drive bay covers.
But let me tell you the quality in this case, is just amazing!
LoL phase,naaa i dont like phase, makes your system look so ugly with all that foam.

Heh... I'm afraid to ask how long it took to run the air bubbles out of all of those individual links in the chain.... it's not like you can easily move that beast around while it's running to move the bubbles up to the next part of the loop..... :)

I still have air inside!!
LoL i tried for a week but all the air will just not come out, so what the heck, just left it in there haha.
I even tilted the case but all those loops and bends love to trap the air.
So i just gave up.

Hey BTW how come the smilies dont add in when i click them? using IE7
