    it´s my first cube and i have to say i´m more than happy with it. I tried to go both ways - silent and enough power for gaming.
    the case:
    [​IMG]
    it´s my first Lian Li case and i´m impressed of the quality.

    the sys:
    [​IMG]
    enough power to play games in 1440x900

    changes i made:
    the original fans
    [​IMG]

    using two Scythe S-Flex 1200 now with Nanoxia schock absorbers (650 rpm idle/load)
    removed the fan grid to avoid air noises
    [​IMG]

    changed the Psu fan. Enermax Liberty with Noctua Fan (really silent/800-900 rpm):
    [​IMG]

    Cpu Cooler - Ninja Mini with Nanoxia FX08 (at minimum - about 1400 rpm), with Nanoxia shock absorbers, too
    [​IMG]

    had to make a little cut so that the eax1950pro fits
    [​IMG]

    still working on laying the cables better - have to cut a little hole into the optical drive socket:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    still to do:
    mount a new NB cooler so that the Cpu can run in passive mode without fan.

    From a 2m distance i can´t hear it work. Sitting beside of it the only thing i hear is the airflow from the Psu and the HD. The original schock absorbers from lian li for the hd are good but not good enough.

    looks great. I plan to ditch this QPack and the 350 was on my shortlist.

    I don t think I am going to get one but yours does exude class and sophistication... well done.

    the max lenght for the 8800 would be 27-27,5 cm
    MB tray to HD case is 13 cm (with the MB mounted about 12,5 cm)

    [​IMG]
    if you want to use the sliding MB tray the max hight for the 8800 would be about 10,5 cm.

    i´m so excited .... wednesday my watercooling for the v350 will arrive. Hope everything will work. Was very hard to find a 240 Radi for this case. For now i´m cooling the Cpu and NB - later when i buy a new video card this will be cooled by water, too. So i hope thursday ther will be an update here... If not i´m trying to get my pc dry.;)

    edit:
    hmmm, looks like the parts won´t arrive today :(.... hope tomorrow.

    It's looking great - love the placement of the radiator. Will heat be an issue with this placement, or will the exhaust fan be able to remove it, do you think?

    That's quite impressive! Where did you put the pump? I must say your setup seems tempting...

    Thanks. what do you mean with backround? It´s just black...;) I´m using a Eos20D. The Cpu block is the Alphacool NexXxoS XP Bold and NB is XSPC Delta Chipset.

    Lol thanks, and by backround, do you just black everything out, or is there a room in your house where one corner or wall is black, cus they look hella professional.

    It´s called "MagiCool SLIM DUAL 240 Radiator".

    Edit
    ok, call me crazy but i just ordered a new pump for my rig (an Aquastream XT). After 2 days i came to the decision that the optical drive bay pump isn´t silent enough. I still can hear it under my desk.;) I hope this will change with the new pump...

    Ok, it´s done. All shock absorbers are mounted. The case is standing under my desk and I can´t her anything but a verry, verry, verry quiet airflow that´s coming from the psu. :) last thing to do is to integrate the video card into the circuit.

    Extremely nice finish, what type of GPU waterblock are you going to use? Thank you for sharing your work, you've convinced me of my next case.

    i changed the setup a bit. first i had fans->radi, now i have radi->fans. the fans are now sucking the air through the radi. now i have a better airflow for the mb. mb temps changed from about 40° to 35°.

    Tremeloes, you influenced me to change some parts of my W/C setup :)...

    I now use the same radiator and tubing as you do, ie MagiCool SLIM DUAL 240 Radiator and Tygon R4300... but with a few different parts...

    Blocks:
    CPU - EK Water Blocks EK-Supreme Acetal universal
    NB - Swiftech MCW30 Northbridge universal
    GFX - EK Water Blocks EK-FC8800 GT/GTS (G92) SLI ready - Acetal

    Ordered them from aquatuning aswell :p


    I'm getting a new P5E-VM HDMI board this week and after the swoop I'll take some pics and post them here..

    i´m glad i could inspire you. ;)
    the EK-Supreme or the cuplex XT di will be my next Cpu cooler when i change the 4300 for a Quad. My next Video Card will also get a EK Water Block. Hope i can order the new parts in one or two month.

    isn´t it too expensive for you to order parts from Aquatunig? (shipping,pay customs)

    Would be nice to see some pics from your case here. With your setup i know four different types of watercooling setups for the v300/350 till now. it´s amazing what people are doing with this small case (you´ll find them here if you are interested in).

    edit:
    can´t believe you are a noobie.:p

    @lillimon04
    Thanks. yes it´s really quiet.if you want to change for mAtx you have to look for the LianLi v350. best case i ever had...:D

    yes, it´s not really a bargain. bought my case for 115 € a few month ago. but now it costs about 89 € in germany. don´t know if i will by another one for my htpc or the lian li pc-a01.
