Please stay tuned to the thread as I am working on a few more videos for this project :) ;) First video is the entire process of bending pipes for the water loop. The second video is the finished project video.

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy my entry into the competition :)

Cheers man!! I thought it seemed a bit quite after I posted the photos haha. I might have to post the thread on social media to raise awareness :)

The riser was actually a gift from Phanteks for a different recently completed project. You can find other companies that sell risers like 3M, Thermaltake and Lian Linfor example.

Tanks for the Quick response. I might go with either 3M Or Lian Li due to the negative reviews for the Thermaltake riser.

Default Final build video is now live!

So after a long time of being busy with work, looking after my sick kids and being really sick myself, I have finally found the time to work on the final video for the completed XV project!

I really hope that you enjoy this video, and please feel free to drop me a comment with any constructive criticism that you might have. :)


Take care and thank you for taking the time to check it out :D

Default PSU measurements Cover

In this following video I start work on v1 of the PSU shroud. Here I create the plate which covers the cables, and will also act as the mount for the SSD.

Here is the PSU shroud after the SSD hole was made, and the alu got a nice lick of paint!




After this mod was done, and I started with the first try of the cable routing, I realized that I needed more space so that the cables can fit. The HX1200 is a very long PSU and took up more space than I anticipated.

Stay tuned for the next update!
Hi, can you tell me the exact measurements of the PSU front cover, it looks awesome, and what is it aluminium metal or plastic and do you know the name of the exact colour. Thanks you!!
Martiks.
