r3v07ut10ns' Define XL - almost done
So where to start. I am coming from a haf 932 and was looking to get into water cooling again. then i saw a post on overclock.net while i was surfing to look for ideas and i came across this link.

[Project] Rusty Cage - Fractal Design Define XL - GPU waterblocks installed (new pics!)

I was totally taking by it, and sure enough 2 days later a Define XL comes available in my city. What are the odds? So i order up a Dazmode kit and get er started


Before i started.i am sure everyone knows what this case looks like now

Here is where i am at, ( waiting for more Dazmode Stuff to come in )

Its not pretty right now, but it is just a PC working.

I am waiting for a few RED accents to arrive, and then i am going to redo the loop, cleaner and sharper with less tubing.

Bronze lexan is awaiting for drill holing as well.

Just wanted to put thx out to Iphikratous for the case, and hope that he does well on this XL modding.

More pics next week once the new gear arrives.

Still looks pretty clean even though it isn't not done yet.

Are you going to mod the side panel for that triple rad? cause I have always dreamed of having a water cooled define XL.

r3v07ut10n January 25, 2012 04:39 PM

Yup i have the 1/4" Bronze lexan already to go. Just have to mark it up and drill.

Small update... just got a little something in.. waiting for 7970 to arrive and then EK block to follow. Finally got my plexi glass cut to size LOL, now i just need to drill the holes for the fans.


r3v07ut10n February 11, 2012 01:02 PM

Are you using magnets to hold that in just for the shot?
What are you planning on using to hold it in permanently?

Looks great with the black interior, I've always wanted to do that with my Antec 900!
