Hey Mundar.. nice build. I've got a question for ya.. What's the temperature(s) like on that TOP GTX 465 video card? The bottom one looks like it is getting an ample amount of air but that top one, obviously not as much. Anyway, keep up the good work!

At idle the top card is about 63-66 degrees Celsius and the bottom card is about 34-38 degrees Celsius with everything at stock. With heavy load while in games I bump the core clock up to 700MHz and the fan speed to 70% and the temps usually stay between 68-73 degrees Celsius. The bottom card usually has about the same temps when gaming. Using EVGA Precision.

My first build ever. Need to work on the cable management in the back because the wires are sort of pushing the side panel out a little bit, but I am happy.

Not bad.

But if you're going to use extenders to get that "MurderMod" look I would suggest hiding the ATX from the PSU a little better.

Sorry, what's the murder mod?

And my case covers up the atx cable, but I need to fix it when I get a chance. Just complete it.

Project: Aurora

Hey All,

This is my first build but it did however take me a while. I've been working on it on and off (sometimes not working on it for a few months) during my highly time consuming degree, but FINALLY I can say I am satisfied with it.

The project goal:
I wanted to make a water cooled build that was unique, sleek and aesthetically pleasing. Whilst many water cooled builds use large cases, my goal was to fit my build objectives into a medium sized case without hindering performance too much.

I chose the CM690 II Advanced due to its classic styling, excellent ventilation, removable HDD mounts and the option for top and bottom mount dual radiators. The work log will show that I've had to modify a few parts of the case, particularly for the vertically mounted graphics but as a whole the overall case is original. Mounting the card vertically was a challenge, but it was a feature I wished to have so eventually I found a manufacturer of PCI-e2 extension cables in America and had it shipped over. I realise this restricts expansions and upgrades in most slots, however for me this is not an issue, as I don't intend to have dual cards or a dedicated sound card.

You may notice similarities to the Murderbox builds from which I drew my inspiration from. The light panel took some thought and experimenting but came together well. I'm still not sure how the Murder Mod light panels are constructed, but my method seems to work fine for a low cost and includes switching between blue and white lighting (discussed in the work log posted soon).

The water channel running through the light panel was a later idea and took some brainstorming and experimenting to ensure flow rates weren't affected. Once you see how I made it, it's actually reasonably simple in construction, but was a bit time consuming.

The smaller blue window was an idea I had to show the pump and exit of the water channel. I went with a blue perspex so it didn't distract from the main features of the build.

I always liked the idea of neat and organised cabling, so early on I decided to make the rear side attractive rather than a cavity to hide poor cabling, so I went with mesh inserts which are still easily removed if necessary. The hole above the still allows access to HHD plugs for removal.

It took me a while to come up with a name that was simple, yet represented the feature of the built which in my opinion is the glow of the light panel, so Aurora seemed fitting.

I'm sure this Aurora isn't to everyone's taste and I do realise it isn't built solely for high performance or practicality but it met my goals better than expected and I hope you like it.

that is a nice build for a first timer, even a seasoned builder, kudos to you man.

ot: it's nice to see people building boxes now for the first time. I like seeing that.

DisrupTer911 - The the case is a Cooler Master CM690 II Advanced but I've modified it here and there including the windows.

fenixv - Thanks, I've only just started with photography (only as a small hobby), I bought a Sony alpha 33 and im really happy with it. Im sure pros will say there were lots of mistakes in the photos but just like the build its self, my photography is beginner level. I'll be posting up a full work log in the next couple of days so have a look out for it.

i believe that picture was meant in a "i just jizzed in my pants" sorta way. as in they really really like the rig. possibly too much. :)

Well, it seems that there a some of us that have never heard of Andy Samberg. If that was the posters intention, then I apologize. :eek: After watching the video, I'm not sure I want to know who he is anyway.

Wow. Sure are a lot of comments in a thread that is supposed to have "absolutely no comments".

what about comments being made or not being made in this no comment thread? :p

People should be able to comment. just because someone yells in the title doesn't mean everyone is going to listen.

I assure everyone that my comment was made in a complimentary manor.

I was only being facetious. I meant no harm. I just think it's funny that the title of the thread says "absolutely no comments". Comments are what casemod threads are all about. :D

A few comments were deleted by an admin a few day ago... I'm not sure why they bother at this point unless they are inflamatory or rude.

I don't even know why this thread was made without comments in the first place? This is a discussion forum and people want to talk about their rigs and the rigs pictured. This thread is so much more awesome with comments.

No comments because a page like this one, with only one member posting a photo makes the thread useless.
People love to talk about other people's rigs, but have nothing to post themselves.
