Default NoL's RocketPhase

So with BestBuy having the $50 LianLi RocketFish cases I had to pick one, (then 4 more) up. Great cases, and with some thought can be phased or watercooled or both!
So after creating what i call a "V1000" panel and painting that with a few layers of prime, paint, and clear coat, I installed a phase unit and charged it up. Holds sub -10C with high loads.
RocketPhase anyone? ;) Expect a few of these to hit the for sale sections soon as prices you won't beleive.

Geez I saw your stuff on ebay IIRC and I thought "just a bit too big to go internal" which is important to me. IMHO having a cooling solution external is cheating (benchie guys excluded). But this is impressive.

So what's the noise levels like? I know with my chest freezer and little bar fridge you have to press your ear ONTO the appliance to even tell it running. Would those compressors be close to what you use or am I way off? Sorry if it's a dumb question as I'm way out of my element here. Though you have me looking up chassis specs...

Thanks,
Ryan

Compressors basically silent, the fan however is a bit noisey. (103cfm). Next revision will be using a higher performance condenser with quieter fan, reducing the size of the unit another 3" and allowing even a 1000W+ PSU to fit inside easily. Expect the setup (including this one) right around the $490-520 price range :)

Very nice work! Still to pricey for my blood, but still, quite nice indeed. But I never knew Bestbuy sold cases...showed you the last time I've been to one -_-

Hehe, so true, so true. The only problem is, I already have fairly high end water. Let's just say my wallet would probably off itself if I tried to pick one up :P

Wow that sounds like a HUGE space savings considering the size/compactness already, and being able to use less airflow is just gravy!

Hmm, definitely looking forward to seeing one with a higher performance condensor.
