Found an old MCW60 in the ol' spare parts box. Think it was used w/ a pair of 8800GT's back in the day.

All ketchup'd up.

Nice & clean.


Block will be used on a 285GTX 2GB, although it likely won't be used in this system as I have my doubts it will fit. Radiator should be here Monday. I really can't wait as then I can start on the cuts for the case.

Guess I should clean the CPU block as well.
Before:

After. Couldn't get it very clean.

Did a test fit on the GPU block. Just waiting for the Swiftech heatsink to arrive for it. Then she'll be up and F@H'ing.

A mean turkey burrito I made

About to do some cuts for the power supply.

Cut away part of the 5.25" bay to get the power supply to fit. Cut the area underneath the power supply for better breathing. And cut the fan stand to accommodate the radiator.

Test fit of radiator.

It fits.

Awesome build so far! Great job on the sleeving.

Everything will be sleeved to perfection. So yes it will be sleeved. I just received the pump today and took a picture of it assembled for XS since the pump heatsink is a new product.

Lowfat is the master of sleeving on HWC. That pump looks pretty awesome, but also pretty big.

Not that much bigger than a stock DDC. Still smaller than a D5.


I test fitted the PSU today. And she fits. But I forgot to cut holes for the cabling since the PSU covers up the original hole.


It is the weekend now and I do have all my parts except for the waterblocks so hopefully I should be able to get a lot done in the next couple of days.
