Project "Envy" The Green Machine

Post by smduff on Sun Jun 26, 2011 7:06 pm

Well its time for some upgrades, I will be reusing my current board and CPU and will wait a little longer for BD to mature. At any rate I have picked up a few new components to get things started.




Some Acid green tubing, looks great. To be honest I loved the way this tubing looked so much it was what I am building the system around LMAO I know stupid right oh well.



I will be adding a second D5 MCP655 pump



A new res, although I really like my current tube 250ml it's just to big for me this time around I am going for a stealth look, and the micro res fits the bill.



A new housing for both pumps in a signal loop for redundancies purposes and increased flow and head pressure.



I will also be picking up some green LED fans unfortunately the ones I want I can't seem to find any more so I may end up calling the manufacturer to see if they can help me out.

Here is a pic of the fans at any rate



I will also be adding a second 480 Rad to my loop, hence the second pump and housing, so I will have this added onto the build along with my 360.



This is going to be a long term project as money permits, as things progress I will keep the thread updated.

Steve I will definately be watching the progression of this upgrade. I also like the look of the greeen as blue and red are so common now days that green is a very nice alternative!

It has been decided that you will go with the case on the right with the green window...your vote is irrelevant.

I understand, but the pedestal makes the look. I like it...and I have decided it is worth spending your money to see it get used for this build.

lol!

Thats what it's for it makes it possible to add another 2 rads and 6 pumps, the case itself holds 4 360 rads.
