Even though this is only my second Case Mod, I have been using ASUS Motherboards for many many years. I have always found them to be well priced and having lots of great features.
And today is no exception. ASUS continue to add all the goods to there Motherboards and GPU's, Even for there low to mid range hardware you still feel you are getting more for less.
As you will see below "Small" can still make a big impact and still play hard. And "Colour" is not Black or White its a shade of what your Imagination can do with it.
Below are two of ASUS products that I will be using for this build from ASUS who I thank for helping me with my second case mod.
The Asus H97I-PLUS Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard and the ASUS TURBO GEFORCE GTX 960 OC Edition
To start off with im doing the out side water blocks/res there will be 6 in all three at the top and three at the bottom. All 6 will be part of the cooling loop.
They will be fitted to the out side of the case, The three on top will be linked the one's on the bottom. So one top one will link to one bottom one, with 3x 5mm clear tubes and so on. on the back of each block will be one fitting that go's to a stand 1/2 mantel bent loop. back to one of the other blocks and keeps going. Lets just call the outer blocks (Loop rails.)
So below I have started a quick step by step.
for the blocks, after ill be adding the 3x 5mm tubes to the 2x blocks to make one (Loop Rail.) and this will be done 3 times.
