Default Antec 902 Dual Rad & 250ml res Mod

Hey guys I cannot believe I haven't bee to this site before its awesome and filled with fellow CANADIANS!!

anyways I have a few things to add like a fill port but my project is complete for now and playing BF4 like a boss ;)

Hey guys I'm done my client build into an Antec 902 case with a dual radiator mod and big window mod. Please take a look and let me know what you think.


Methodology
This is another reactor build with an antec dual front radiator mod in push-pull config. My previous build was in an original antac 900 with a dual and single radiator and an external 250ml Frozen-Q reservoir. (Build Log - Core Reactor)

I love the looks of the antec cases, and for their time they were MASSIVE! now-a-days they are on the smaller size and give almost no cable management.

This build will encompass a haswell CPU with the dual radiator mod and I will place the 250ml inside the case! There is enough room with planning and measurements in this case, with a big window mod. to see it all.

Goals & Reasoning
This will be a second client build, I am selling this once it is finished in hopes to build my ultimate "gold and Black" build. This build will be using the remaining parts that didnt go into Client build 1 (build log - from rags to riches).

Thanks for the warm welcome, Id expect nothing less from my fellow Canadians :) I really am proud to be a Canadian :)

Hey guys I just put the finishing touches on my antec mod in a video series. The first two are a little armature but the last two in the series are a lot more professional as I get the hang of it. Please let me know what you think :)

Thanks for the warm welcome guys :) I'm glad you like it I finished up the final process this weekend installing a fill port and reversing the air flow so there is a positive pressure inside the case, as well as fan filters. This was very difficult working in such a tight space with the connection for the pump, rad and res all in such a small area.

As well not having every possible fitting to keep testing sizes and locations becomes a difficult task. each fitting is $17.99 + tax and shipping!!! so yea you have top plan very well and not waste any excess fittings and stuff.

Already starting on two new builds :) I'll keep you posted ;0
