Project Bright Panel: 800D, Liquid Cooled, Illuminated Mid Panel





I have completed my build log, showing the updates to my liquid cooled PC, and have decided to re-post them on my personal blog.  To see the original build log, head over to [H]ard Fourm

 Component wise, not much will change, but I am adding some cool upgrades like enhanced case lighting via an illuminated mid-panel, and an AquaComputer monitoring / control system, custom sleeving, etc. Here is an early design of what I am shooting for, built in Google SketchUp. 


It will be a liquid cooled PC with one giant loop, using 2 pumps in series. I am using the Corsair Obsidian 800D, and this case is a monster. I love the all black look, inside and out. I had to make a few minor modifications for the two loop system to work, but the mod went great, and I am pleased with the results.
