    "UPDATE"

    I just got the email saying NDA is lifted today 4/3/2012 on the NZXT Fans i have for my build and i can freely show and discuss them! I will Review them or at least Post them in another place but i am just showing them Here with the NZXT Mix Fan Controller because this is all going into my build and all Sponsored by NZXT .

    Please lets not turn my build log into a discussion place for the Fans though. I will post them also some place else here in the Forums.

    But Here they are and i believe i am the first to show them :









    Fans for the Mass Effect - NZXT Switch 810 Build are:

    NZXT FZ 140mm AIRFLOW FAN's (13 of them)

    83.6 CFM / 24.5 dba

    New 13 Blade design - Long Life Bearing (40,000 Hours)

    Sleeved Cables

    2 year Warrenty

    Full Specs:

    Size: 140 x 140 x 25mm
    Voltage: 12V DC
    Current: 0.15A
    Input: 1.8W
    Speed: 1000+- 200 RPM
    Air Flow: 83.6 CFM
    Air Pressure: 0.813 mm H2O
    Noise: 24.5 dba
    Life: 40,000 Hours


    As you can see 2 of them are open and these Fans are virtually Silent! And push Great Airflow at low RPM!

    I have been dying to share these Fans with you guys for a while now because i am all excited about them.The Mass Effect 3 Build should be very quiet even with x13 140mm Fans in it.

    NZXT you've done it again! Incredible Fans from an incredible Company. Lol look how low wattage they take to run. Just amazing. I compared them to some other 140mm Fans i have here including my Akasa 140mm Viper. These NZXT fans are way quieter ,Take way less Voltage to run and are just Amazing!


    Hope you guys love them and am so Glad i have the Opportunity to share them with you guys!


    Thank You yet again NZXT ! and Great Job on another incredible Product ! :thumb:

    Oh did i mention? Yes i highly recommend these Fans!




    Take Care guys MybadOmen ans remember More Updates soon

    UPDATE !

    Ok as you may know from earlier posts and Updates i ordered the EK XTC 420 AND 280 Radiators knowing they don't fit in the Switch 810. But thats the way i wanted it.The Radiators are incredible and no matter what was needed they were going in. So this Update shows how i got the top EK XTC 420 up top.

    Once again thank you EKWB for your support and Sponsorship.


    Ok lets get started !


    Here is the Radiator and Fan Setup for Loop 1. As you can see its enormous and it will be inside the Case.On top of that the EK XTC 420 doesn't match the hole patterns on the NZXT Switch 810. So as you can imagine there was allot of work to do here and did it all with my tools at home which made it allot bigger of a job.


    The EK XTC 420 & x6 NZXT FZ 140mm Airflow Fans in Push/Pull Configuration :









    Now i start making a new plate to hold all the weight and with the correct hole Pattern using some pretty rugged steel:





















    As i said before, and i will say it again Always wear Safety Glasses like the ones i have here which are an incredible Pair and very affordable from Mnpctech.com

    Smith & Wesson Safety Glasses i am always using can be found here: Safety Glasses





    Also Please DO NOT take your Safety Shields off your tools like i do. It is a very dumb idea and i shouldn't be doing it myself.Its a real easy way to hurt yourself fast.






































    Well that parts done and out of the way.

    I purposely showed the tools i used so you could get an idea of what i Mod with. A few tools and your on your way to Modding anything.

    My Favorite tools i would have to be is My RotoZip and Second my DREMEL. Without them i wouldn't be able to do much at all.



    More Update's Very Soon ! Keep Watching.

    UPDATE!

    OK i don't want to keep you guys waiting for updates so i will post some of what i have been doing.


    Alright first we will start by looking at the begging of one of the biggest things i am doing to this build which is trying to have the tubing running along both sides of the top of the case on the inside of the cover but where they can still be seen from outside the case. This little idea has been very complicated with many obstacles to get past. Still not completed but here is where i left off on that till more parts arrive.



    As you can see from this Picture there is no chance of the cover fitting on over the fittings.



    So using this crazy dangerous tool.I made some adjustments to the top of the case to make it work.



    Nice cozy fit now!




    Next for some 5.25 Bay work.This is where tons of work has been done and still has to be done to make a dual loop in this build and end up very clean looking.

    Here are the stock drive bays in the NZXT Switch 810.Nice but this is just not going to work for me.



    There are a few things that need to be modded here.I need better airflow to to top Rad front fan because the XTC rad is so thick it comes very close to the top cage inside. The other thing is i need places opened up so the tubing can actually run through all these bays.And also the Pumps are going to be mounted inside the bays as well.And there are a few more reasons i cant remeber right this second but anyway everything needed a bunch of modding in the Drive area:





























    Everything at this point is still just in rough state.It will all get cleaned up and painted when i know all measurements are right and everything fits.


    Here are some Photo's of things starting to get pretty.




    3M Di-noc Carbon Fiber Sponsored by Mnpctech.com.

    You can get some from his store and its amazing stuff! Link is here for it : 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fiber Sheets














    Now to dress up my new Pump Cage i suppose you could call it: It's Aluminum i am using and it will be Polished to look like the rest of the Nickel in the build and will be finished off with Black Rivets.







    Also a small fan update.I thought i was really in a rough situation when i heard the blades don't come off the NZXT FZ Series fans.So i went in to investigate the situation, prepared to sacrifice a fan to find out what the deal was.Anyway the conclusion of it all was the fan blades can simply be popped off and on carefully and i can still get them painted.

    Here was the investigating part:







    Next i tested my theory which was there should be no reason i cant just pop the blades off and back on.It worked!






    Sorry for the long wait that time for Updates guys but i hope it was worth it. There is still tons to do be done to the drive bays but i wanted to update you guys with some of whats been going on.

    More Updates Shortly so Keep watching!

    Update!

    Package arrived today wonder what it could be? :thinking:



    Great nothing but Packing Peanuts. Didn't April fools already Pass ?



    Oh wait. Whats this buried deep under the Peanuts?Yup My PSU has arrived and now i can really kick some butt on this build!




    OK now to get serious.First i would like to give a Huge Thank You to:



    NZXT - Unique. Unprecendented. Inspired

    For all the support they have given towards this build and to me personally.


    Next i will talk about the Hale 90 1000w PSU and show its specs and then finish the unboxing.


    80+ Gold Enthusiast modular PSU
    NZXT introduces the 80+ gold certified HALE90 series built from the ground up specifically customized for gamers and enthusiasts and offers incredibly efficient operation that will meet the needs of even the most power hungry enthusiasts.

    Specifications:








    OK now that we established its a great PSU from NZXT we can move on and finish the Unboxing:




    A cool little NZXT bag to hold all the Modular cables.That will be sleeved in Para cord when i am done.



    Damn isn't she a Beauty. Its almost a shame they are letting me get my hands on it. Because i don't plan on it looking like it does now for long.And it looks so good right out of the box.







    Waste of a sticker on me:


    Take Care Guys and should have even More updates for you late Tonight!


    Keep watching, now some real work is going to get done!

    UPDATE!

    As promised i said there would be another update tonight.And here it is:

    Ok one of the biggest Mods this build is getting is ,I want it duel loop with the tubes showing through a window in the top of the case.So when you look at the case from the side you can see the coolant flowing across the top of the case cover on both sides.There has been a ton of obstacles to get this to work and I'm still not out of the woods yet.


    First i will start with the Fans.The fans i got from NZXT came in white.I told them i didn't care because i was painting them anyway.Then i ran into a little problem.There were plugs either melted or glued in place blocking the plastic ring that needs to be removed to paint the fans.This is the new NZXT FZ 140mm Airflow Series fans i am speaking of. So i investigated the problem and found out it was as simple as popping the blades off and popping them back on. So that being said 10 Fans got Painted today also.

    This is what i ran into when i went to take the Fans apart.Believe me i tried popping the plug out and knew something wasn't right:



    So i start to Investigate the problem by throwing a Milling bit in my drill press on low speed and slowly cutting into the plug.The plug goes all the way down to the bottom against the plastic ring you usually take out to remove the blades:








    I was more then willing to sacrifice a fan if needed to find out how to get these apart. No worries though no Fans were harmed in the process.

    Result was success. I found i could easily just pop the blades on and off if i applied slight pressure to the inside of the blades. I would do this to many times because you will eventually wear out the plastic clip that holds the blades in.






    Ok so that problem was solved so now to start painting the Fans because i need them a darkish red color:














    Ok next i had to remove the top cover of the case and do some more Modding.I needed to add 3 Pass troughs in just the right place so the tubing on each side went to a separate loop and in a way that will make the end of the build look very clean inside for the amount of cooling in such a small space.I also prepped and repainted the top because if you remember there was a lot of cutting and scratches etc.Plus the new plate i made to fit the EK XTC Rad was still unpainted.


    Alright. Here we go:


    The top before i started today




    And the work starts











    And here is the start of what it will look like when completed.Allot cleaner and everything cut to the right lengths.But now you can see how the tubing will be showing through the side of the top cover.




    Hope you enjoyed the update.There is allot more to it then it looks because all the tubing has to run exactly in the right place to meet up with the Pumps,Reservoirs etc and still be able to clear all the other hardware.Not to mention i still need to get the top on


    Looks like a nice night to relax by staying up and Sleeving all night

    Take care and More Updates soon so Keep Watching !

    UPDATE:

    Here is an update guys just showing the State of the Mass Effect Build at this moment. Many don't realize when Modding the build comes apart and back together many many times.I figured i would show it this time.

    This is just to make some small changes to the backing plate for the PSU and some other things that needed adjusting. And this was all done Old School! No laser cutters here. Just Dremels,Rotozip and lots of filing and sanding. It still needs to be smoothed out a bit more tonight. Then it all goes back together. and then apart again a few more times. And finally when everything is in place and working 100%. Thats when i will start painting.

    Here are some Photo's for you guys:











    Had to speed up the Drill press a little.I was running on the lowest speed.This is just showing how you change speeds on a real drill press:



    And Back to Work. You can only imagine how much work it is taking a Piece of steel and making everything from scratch with just minor hand tools.It takes allot of time ,but at the end i guess you could say its a truly hand crafted PC. Damn what i would do for a Laser cutter and small Milling machine home . Sponsors? Lol just kidding. anyway back to work










    As you can see its getting Dark out so time to move inside and keep on sanding everything even and smooth. Here is the Current State of the Mass Effect build as of right now!






    What i actually got accomplished in those photos :


    .. Rough cut the whole for the PSU wires to go through.
    .. Made some of the other holes a little bigger for the wires to go through (They were a bit to small) .
    .. Made new Holes for the top and Bottom Fan wires to run neatly and hidden.
    .. Most wires will be coming from under the motherboard so opened them up maby 1 cm.
    .. Drilled all the wholes where i will be applying Rivets to reassemble the build when complete.
    .. Made new holes for mounting the new Modified Drive Bays .
    .. Also made new holes for the Reservoir Mounts (I will still be Notching these when i get to my buddies and can use the Bridgeport.to make them adjustable.)
    .. Filed and shaped the metal till my hands were ready to bleed.
    .. Next i used a DA sander and sanded everything smooth with a 220 Grit sand paper.(I want to keep the back plate roughed up so the self etching primer will stick very good when it comes time to paint.


    Probably forgetting something. But as you can see something so little takes allot of work if you want the end results to be a very clean looking build.This build will go back together and Apart many more times Just this week before everything is good.

    New Parts i had to order to get things Moving:

    This Build is Completely Liquid cooled by dual Loops all EK, Primochill and Mayhem's but sometimes it is impossible to not use other adapters to make things work.So this is where i had no choice but to use other products not made by my sponsors. (I am sure they understand ) So 99.9% of this build is cooled by EK ,Pimochill and Mayhem's and if i had it my way it would be 100% but we can only do what we can do.

    2 of these adapters to move my pumps down a little.



    3 of these so i could get to the fittings underneath coming through the Pass through's



    1 of these Blocks to make the angle from the bottom Rad heading up to the top pass through nice and clean.



    4 of these Low profile 90 degree elbows because the ones i had were to tall to work.



    Just those few fittings plus shipping was close to another 100 bucks ! So when people think sponsorship mean's is about getting a free build they are crazy.I spens a $100. couple days and i also have a fortune into this build.But don't get me wrong the build would not be possible without my Sponsors.But i am doing it not for the free stuff but for the ability to Show off the companies i love and use regardless if they sponsor me or not.Every Sponsor i have are Companies i Highly recommend and have before this build and will after this build.

    I also ordered some other stuff Last night for the build.


    1 sheet. Another 24" x 24" of 3M Di-noc



    100 feet of the White Para-cord i forgot in my last order because i though i still had some:



    50 white and 50 Red 3mm LED's and some assorted resistors that i will be using to make somethings with:







    And some other small stuff



    Also Have some stuff coming from my Sponsor Primochill / Tyler Industries Thank Guys!

    6 Led plugs sorta like these that i used in Venom but they are from Primochill and not something they have for sale that i can see.



    12 of there Ghost Barbs More then i need but this will ensure i have enough.



    And also 12 black Clamps and they might be sending some other things also.


    Plus another great thing is my Birthday is in 2 days and i always wanted to Make High Quality stickers and Vinyl Decals. So i needed a really good printer for it.My wife bought and came home with both a Really nice Laser printer and really nice Inkjet printer from a Family member that bought them recently and never used them. I have been wanting to get this equipments for a long long time because in the long run it will save me a fortune on my Mods.

    Anyway here they are:

    The Laser Printer HP2025: (This on prints incredibly high quality)



    And the Inkjet which Canon from the Sticker making threads i read is one of the best Inkjets for making Stickers and Decals:







    Also another small update i would like to show.I spent about an hour Polishing up the front Face plate i made for my Pump cage from aluminum. (it came out very nice)




    More UPDATES Soon! Keep Watching!

    UPDATE!

    Very exciting day today !

    A package i have been waiting for a long time now has arrived.This whole theme is counting on these items to push it over the top and the cooling is routed the way it is for this reason.

    First i would like to start by showing the story that made me want this person as a Sponsor and involved with this build.This story is very inspiring and and when i read it i knew i had to have him as a Sponsor.All my Sponsors as i said before are companies that i Love and totally believe in or i would not promote their products.Well there is no question i promote Mayhem's products and highly recommend them. (Just be sure you know what you are ordering because allot of his coolants are for show only such as the Aurora Product line.)

    Anyway enough of me Flapping here is Mayhem's Story and its a very inspiring and Amazing story. I guess it could be called a from Rags to Riches story:





    And a link to his Store: http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop/en/

    Meet Michael (aka) Mayhem,

    " Mayhems (formally known as Mayhems Dye) started back in early 2009 by total accident. Michael (aka Mayhem) part owner of Mayhems was fed up of buying in dyes that were supposed to be made for water cooling yet would only last a few weeks at best are were never as strong or as good as described. After trying out many versions of dye made for liquid cooling Michael decided to make his own. Michael initially invested £5.00 on dyes.

    His first steps were good but not good enough so after more research and playing around he started to perfect his process and eventually produced some of the strongest water cooling dyes ever to hit the market place. These dyes not only looked good but they worked for long time in the Pc liquid cooling systems he tested them on and now are a re·nowned product and favoured by the modding community worldwide. Mayhems Dye was born.

    Next Michael took a look at the fluid market and thought once again that all the products on the market just seem to be gimmicky hyped up cooling fluids that never seems to work as advertised. After several failures at trying to produce the same sort of fluids Michael finally found success in his X1 formula. Not only did the liquid look much better than anything else on the market its thermal performance blew every other product out of the water literally.

    As Mayhems Dyes grew Michael knew he could not handle all the work load himself and invited Steve Verity (former owner of Themochill and www.over-clock.co.uk) to come see some of his products he was developing (Aurora). Steve saw the potential in the new products and has known Michael for a very long time. They both came together and re launched “Mayhems” on Nov 2011 with a new name and new web site.

    In Nov 2011 the new web site (Mayhems Home Page - Mayhems) was launched and at the same time mayhems Aurora & Pastel range of fluids was pushed into the face of modders worldwide. The take up of all the whole range of products Mayhems has created has literally changed the face of liquid cooling for ever and is helping change the way people see liquid cooling.

    In the very short time Mayhems has been around it has grown in size and now can produce over 800 Ltrs of cooling fluids a day (this is soon due to double up). These fluids are all built from the ground up and are all made in the UK which is something Mayhems is very proud off.



    Mayhems now has two offices and a warehouse and a product development centre and all so has several people working for them. They employ a colorist, a chemist and several labours to help with the making of the fluids. The testing of the fluids is second to none and there development of new ideas is just a force to be reckoned with.


    Michael said in 2009 on a forum to Tiny Tom Logan of OC3D “I will change the water-cooling forever.” and he still stands by that statement to date. "


    Hope you enjoyed the story where you can see he started out just like allot of us.He had an idea and he did something no one else on the market was doing and created the Incredible product line they have now.

    Here is what Mayhem sent for the "Mass Effect 3 - NZXT Switch 810 Build" :



    x2 bottles 250 ml Concentrate bottles of Mayhem's Pastel - Light Red

    Link to Mayhem's Light Red: http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop/en/may...224350924.html






    x2 bottles 250 ml Concentrate bottles of Mayhem's Pastel - Ice White

    Link to Mayhem's Ice White: Mayhems





    X2 10 ml Bottles of Mayhem's Red Dye

    Link to Mayhem's Red Dye : http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop/en/may...s-dye-red.html





    "The Red Dye is needed to make the correct color Red to match the Mass Effect Theme i am doing"





    So Huge Thanks to Mayhem's for there help Sponsoring Me and the the Mass Effect 3 -NZXT Switch 810 Build!


    More Updates Shortly !

    "UPDATE!"

    Yup my Birthday and i am giving you guys the present of an Update




    If you guys have been following this thread you realize i am running a dual loop system sorta setup the way Venom was with the reservoirs Being used the same way.So in total technically this build will have 4 Reservoirs. I EK dual bay dual loop Spin Res. Basically the actual Reservoir and fill point. Then there are 2 10" Reservoirs just to hold more coolant in the system and both being bottom fed straight from the Pumps.The spin res is right above the pumps as the main Res. So the Pumps will never run dry.I am not debating this setup i researched it and used the same setup in Venom and got great results. So this is the way the cooling in the Mass Effect 3 build is going.


    But the Major Part of this whole build and nightmare was to get the Cooling lines to run through the top of the case with 6 140mm Fans in Push / Pull and an EK XTC 420 up there also.But heres where it gets really tricky. I want windows in the side of the top cover showing the tubing which will be flowing with Mayhem's Pastel Ice White on one side and Mayhem's Pastel red Mixed with Red dye on the other side.Sounds simple but if you actually look at the case and the top and realize there are 2 loops it is extremely difficult to pull off. Also it has taken so many hours of planning and so many fittings i had to buy that wouldn't work, not to mention the actual time put into doing it.

    Lets Just simply Say it was a Pain in the AZZ.



    But on my birthday after a long night of planning and executing a plan I FINALLY PULLED IT OFF!

    The windows aren't cut in the side of the top cover yet because i am debating on sending it out for Laser cutting because one little slip and that's it .All that work will be trash.


    Here are some Photo's of what i have been doing and at the moment it just looks Like a stock Switch 810 on top.You would never know all the work that's actually done inside.



    Here we go :

    First i will show you guys the New EK HF Supreme Nickel bracket i got.atahe Ram block will hopefully be matching i am trying my hardes to get a top for it.







    I got the new Low Profile elbows and it worked like a charm.Just the right Height :





    Also got some Extensions so i can actually get to the compression unions underneath.












    Ok so now i know for sure i can clear the top of the Cover and get to the compression unions to hook everything up.So now time to start modding the Cover itself. Fun fun. "Oh yeah i got to use my Blade of Lost fingers again to do this Job" :eek:













    Here is the top on and you would never even know what was under there. Also i have some other shots of stuff i am working on also.:





















    Well that's all for now! More Updates Shorty so keep checking back! Or subscribe to the thread to get notified of updates!

    Hope you are enjoying it so far!
