    Hello everybody, I am preparing a new project, and decided to post here at Guru3D ...
    I'm from Brazil, so forgive me if I write something wrong ...

    THE HOME
    It started with the idea of mounting a water cooler system, then just had to switch case, because my old case had not space enough to accommodate radiators inside, so I started "looking" for an ideal case.

    THE CASE

    Well, here in Brazil we have few good options for cases involving a large project with system water cooler, here we have only two good cases that is the line Obsidians Corsair and Coolermaster Cosmos II.
    So it had to be one of these two, however I wanted to put two radiators, one 480mm in the roof and another 240 on the floor of the case, and soon discovered that would not do this with any of the above two cases, then had to leave looking for a case that does not have in my country, would have to import a totally different case.
    So it was that one day I was talking with a friend that helped me a lot with my project, he showed me a cabinet that would support my idea, so it was there that I met the case Azza Genesis 9000B, and fell in love, and had not in my country I had to give it my way, and I could import this case, it is much cheaper in the United States, however as most know, the taxes here my country is absurd, I imported it, I paid 165 USD on it, I had to pay 250 USD for shipping (FEDEX), and coming here the IRS taxed on the value of 170 USD, in conclusion, this case has a total of 585 USD, due to high taxes and cost of sending this case for my country, but even more worth it because everything here is expensive, a Cosmos II costs the value of 600 USD here, and Genesis 9000 leaving just a bit cheaper than COSMOS II and still offers a larger space for radiators, incorporating a 480mm radiator in the ceiling and another 240mm on the floor ...

    THE MOTHERBOARD
    The motherboard also has a hardship to get as soon as launched the motherboard ASROCK EXTREME 11 I wanted it, and there might be another, I found a supplier of canada with just three weeks of release motherboard, and soon managed care her face went well, however I need it soon ...

    THE TABLE
    The table was one of the first changes, so decided the case, I had to change the table to be able to use the R-ATX case that is much better, so here's a photo of the table as it was and as it is now, I particularly preferred as it was before, but it was for a greater cause, lol ...

    This week I will do some mods with metal plates to give a better finish to the watercooler ..

    Yes, they are video cards from different manufacturers, and their clocks are different but already tested on another project that had used this way and it worked perfectly ...

    Why do you ask that? ever seen a problem occurs with different video cards in SLI?


    Note * forgive my English is a little newbie!

    Now I will post the pictures of the first shipment of parts procurement system cooler water, purchase arrived yesterday, and has two more purchases coming to me, so get shopping I'll post photos of the other pieces, and mods I'll do at the office during the week!


    Box

    [​IMG]


    My son sat in the box, stop everything will break .. LOL
    rsrs

    [​IMG]


    Flatbed, the order came well packaged and well protected

    [​IMG]


    In this purchase came the main parts of the water cooler, and also came a few pieces of mods (leds-iluninação) I asked to test ...

    First I will show the main pieces, and then the pieces of mods ...


    The pieces that came in this shipment:
    Came two radiators, dual top, tank, the cpu block, a fan test and two piece of hose to choose which shade of blue I'll use in my system ...

    [​IMG]


    Let's start with the cpu block

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    The reservoir
    I think I was one of the last to get this model EK, EK saw that stopped production of this model, and this produces a different model of 250, do not know what changes are, the more hope it's good

    [​IMG]


    The dual top for two pumb D5

    [​IMG]


    The fan
    I bought this fan just for testing, but it does not like, it starts with 7 volts, is a very loud noise, I will not use this model in my system, I'm leaving for the Koolance fans HBK-cooler 240 which will be on the ground

    [​IMG]


    Radiators

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The radiator of 240 that will be on the floor I chose the model of UT60 Alphacool because it comes with that hole behind allowing you take a beautiful drainage system using some fittings and a drain-plug!

    [​IMG]



    H oses
    I asked two different piece of hose so I could see firsthand the quality and color of these two hoses of different brands, so I can choose what I will use in my project ...

    The left is Primoflex LRT Blue - she is a little darker, however has a very elegant sheen.

    The right is the brand XSPC Blue Rose, she has a lighter color compared with the other, however has a more matte appearance.

    Conclusion: I liked the two hoses, I'm very undecided on which I will use in my system, more is almost decided that I will stay with XSPC because it has a better quality of material and color is lighter, better then contrasts with the case that is black

    [​IMG]


    And the other part of the purchase are parts to mod the case, are lights, rubber finishing

    [​IMG]



    This is it, this week I will do some mods on the case, so I have something interesting to post here.
