    The phase unit I bought has gone back for modification....Basically to silence it.

    This is just to give an idea what I'm doing....

    The phase is having a new top on it with a new hole cut and the line is being lengthened.

    The line will come in behind the PSU

    The fan grill is going and it will be replaced with a black one.

    A side window will be added and I might powder coat the inside of the case.

    Its a way of painting it. The surface it electrostatically charged, a powder paint is then sprayed on and the the whole thing is finally baked to attach the paint.

    Nice setup easyrider. Not as good as mine though. :p Whats Gray doing to silence it you know?

    Yes its not as good as yours lol.

    Not spent as much as you lol ;)

    Hes changing the compressor,twaeking the gas and fans,

    It will still have superior performance to that of a Mach II or vapochill though but with very low noise, :D

    What of?

    The phase?

    The Idea of using the P180 is to have a super Sleek silent Black towering monster.

    :D

    This is going to be a realtively cheapish project :)

    looks great!

    Keep us updated with lots of pics :cool:

    P.S: I really wanted that case I just thought I would cover it in fingerprints, I noticed you didn't remove the plastic coating yet! :D

    Well it was the noise factor.

    But that is being dealt with :D

    Must have been pretty loud before. Good choice I think, sounds like a great unit. As long as you don't sacrifice too much performance.

    I have been assured it will have vastly superior performance to a Mach II and vapo :)

    Gray should do a nice job for you mate, running one of his modded Mach1's which was built as a "quiet" unit.
    Pretty noisy pulling down to ~ -40 or so but after that the noise level's MUCH nicer. Still not silent/quiet by anymeans but much better that at full whack!

    This unit runs ~ -58 no load (evap) and -47 evap @ idle. Evaps sat at -43 right now, with CPU (E6600) @ 4.2ghz w/ 1.6+ vcore. It's tuned for "quiet" running, but still packs a punch. Kudos to the master :D

    do phase units only cool CPU or can you cool GPU with them?
