FLush scratch-built water-cooled PC finished

FLush scratch-built water-cooled PC finished

FLush's CPU, graphics card, RAM and EVGA motherboard are all water-cooled.

Bit-tech forum user and modder k.3nny has recently completed a fantastic scratch-built water-cooled PC. The project, called FLush, began just a few weeks ago with the first update being posted in our project log forum on 13 April.

Since then, k.3nny (also known as Kenneth Machielsen), who hails from The Netherlands, knuckled down and blitzed the entire PC in less than a month, despite only having a limited selection of tools at his disposal.

It looks absolutely stunning, with copious amounts of aluminium combined with a large external reservoir and a luminous green glow from the internal water-cooling system.

When he's not modding, Kenneth works in McDonalds as a griller, which just goes to show the diversity of bit-tech's modding community, as well as the fact that talented modders can be found in a wide variety of places.

You can see more of the project on Kenneth's log, and he'll be speaking to bit-tech soon about his project, so watch this space. In the meantime, we've posted plenty of photos of the project for your viewing pleasure below.

If you want to see more projects such as this in the works, then make sure you check out our modding forums, which have been alive with activity over the last few weeks, and many of the best up-and-coming projects have some serious eye candy on show.

Is FLush your cup of tea? What's the best modding project you've seen this year? Let us know in the forums.

That res looks fantastic.

I dig it. Would prefer it all in black though.

I like it. The screws help give it an industrial look. If I ever go with a custom-built watercooling setup, I might mount my reservior on top like that too.

Love the overall look, but those black screws screwed the visual. Perhaps some inox allen?...

The juxtaposition of the rectilinear with the curvaceous parts doesn't work. IMHO

P.S. Still a startling piece of "art"

Thnks people :D! And ofcourse bit-tech! This is my first scratch build ever, i know from now on that i wont NEVER!!! use steel frames again :P and 1mm alu panles are slightly to thin 1.2/1.5 would be much better (dents around inbuss)

Not cardboard, maybe brass. That way it would avoid galvanic corrosion.

I wish my first case looked like that.

Nice job Kenny. ;)

Congrats k3nny !
I love your scratch build !

Pweeetty!

I can see what you went for with the black screws but unfortunately there are too many of them, and it spoils the effect (I assume) you were going for. Other than that it's beautiful. Well done. ;)

Some people love to complain. I bet the complainers all have un-modded cases.

Pretty good for a scratch build especially considering it's a first attempt and the time frame, definitely has alot of potential. Keep it up! Love the res and good overall theme, but as mentionned the black fasteners clash hard; swap for stainless and voila! Also, I find the exterior really just, well plain... that's just me but I feel it needs some details.

Offering opinions and complaining are two different things.

like the res, like the inside, everything else I dont care for at all seems out of place. Overall however props for the work done and hey what matters in the end is if he likes it then thats all that counts.

I think it looks great considering it was made from scratch, and has a unique styling to it.

This is very nice mod buddy and very well executed, I like the overall look and the screws, its gothic looking and I love it!!! Considering the tools used for this mod, its more than awesome. Not many people will be able to achieve this result with limited tools. Bravo my friend, mod on!! :)
