This is just my continuation of oversize parts in an itx case build log. Parts are still the same, with added oversize Radiator instead of using nzxt krakens slim radiator I apologize how bad with my hydro dip paint job... This is my first try and I'm still learning how to properly dip using hydro activators.
Just ignore the 3 cards in the rig, its just for show that everything can be stuffed in an itx case (Thermaltake core p1)
Just a quick specs: CASE: ThermalTake Core P1 Tempered Glass (ITX Case) Motherboard: Asus Maximus Formula IX CPU: Intel i7 7700k 4.2ghz RAM: G.SKILL Trident Z RGB 3000mhz 8gb GPU: Asus Strix 1070ti, Asus strix 1070 2pcs Storage: Samsung EVO 850 250gb CPU Block used: NZXT Kraken x62 Tubes used: 16mm Fittings: Mostly Barrow 16mm Reservoirs: Unbranded 2pcs different sizes PUMP: EK DP2 Fans: Corsair hd120 2pcs Radiator: Unbranded Copper base 240mm Thick radiator PSU: HX1200 Corsair Platinum rated
How it started: It was just a crazy idea in my head that I was hoping to build an ITX using Bigger parts, thats why this project was created. But the original idea was, building a full tower case using an iTX motherboard. :D
Build Log on the case: I actually removed and cut the back panels: fan grill on the case so that the Radiator can be inserted on the case (THICK RADIATOR) And added few screw holes for the PSU mount. I also removed some metal parts inside the Thermaltake case for more cable management and more space... I used only 2.5" hard drive and ssd. The wires is easily been managed thanks to the big motherboard. I can actually hide cables on the back of the mobo. :D The CPU block i used was from the AIO of NZXT kraken x62. Destroyed it.. and converted to custom loop. Actually I turned of the Pump, simply disconnected some solder points on the pcb inside the CPU block. Changed the logo "NZXT" to Asus ROG logo
My thoughts: Im satisfied to what ive modified. However my Hydro dipping paint job is at very very worst at the moment.. I apologize for that.. this is my first time to initiate hydro dipping.. I just need practice and experience. The case is so open.. temps are showing 28C - 33C at Idle 50-60C multicore stress test.. What I didn't like; ITS TOO HEAVY for an ITX build. What I like, Oversize parts on an itx case looks great :D
By the way: This rig won 2nd place best in looks under small form category... And im really proud of it, and it was just a crazy idea in my head :D Leave me comments and suggestions on my build, hoping for new learning and ideas from you guys.. thanks.. have a good day! :D
