Project Danger Den Water Box Plus Case Review (Part 1)ccokeman - August 27, 2007

After getting the side panels installed, the assembly is starting to resemble a case now. Seeing how low the optical drive brackets are I decided to test fit the power supply I will use on this build. The power supply fits in and is not as tight a fit as it first seemed. The power supply mounts using the hardware supplied in the kit, allowing for the same fasteners to be used throughout the case.
Only two more panels to go and then we will be ready to start with the installation of our components. The front panel is the one we had etched with our logo. This option is available for an additional fee depending on your design. Installing this panel and the top panel will be the final stages of the case assembly.
We will have to take these last two parts off to install all of the components when it comes time to do the installation, but thats a small price to pay for the benefits of using this case as part of a water cooled system. Now lets take a few views of the completed case to whet our appetite for the next installment of this project.
Now that we have completed the assembly of the case we will move on to the cooling components selected for this case. Since we are using a case called the Water Box Plus, what else is there to use but a water cooling system? The components we have chosen are designed to work as a complete system and function well together rather than a mis-matched set of components that may or may not perform well together. Follow along as we continue with Project Danger Den. Up next,the cooling components(Project Danger Den Part 2), coming soon to a page near you ...
