Slow, but steady update.

I've been designing the cooling and trying to figure it out how to fit those 2x240 radiators inside.
Problem solved with right angle 90 degree PCI Express riser, with that i get GPU pointing down -> more space to radiators.




All the parts are 3mm aluminium, partly welded together. I'm saving the logo on the other side by cutting only lower part of the side. That will serve as intake, to the bottom of the can i will install 200mm fan, which will push the air out. That will need a little guide to push the hot air away from the intake area.
I think i may have gone a little too BIG with this kind of setup... It's getting little tight fitting the other parts.

If you want to use 200 mm fan to push air in the back, the the best solution would be to use PlayStation 3 (fat) fan.

I'm not familiar with PS3 fan, will check out. Air flow direction is not yet solved. The best way, or how I think it is, is to pull cool air first to radiators -> then circulate it within case -> direct it to exhaust.

Here is the link .

As you can see,it's made to blow in any side direction. That would be the best solution for your build.

Why don't you cut little air slits behind the rad? Then you could suck in cool air and blow it out through the rads.

The Silkolene brand name has a long history, with the company originating in England. Initially, it was called Dalton and Company, being named after its founder, and sold Silkolene products. However, recognising the strength of the Silkolene brand, in the early 1980s, the company was renamed Silkolene Lubricants. In 1989, Silkolene Lubricants was acquired by the German Fuchs group, and the products were subsequently renamed Fuchs Silkolene.

The products themselves gained a high international regard.[citation needed] The Silkolene company developed specialist lubricants for aviation, including oils for the Merlin engine, as used in the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster, to name a few. Silkolene dedicated many years on technical cooperation with the US Air Force, and was also involved with the supersonic passenger aircraft, Concorde. The company amassed expertise with synthetic lubricant technology, and Silkolene became a recognised world leader in the field of synthetic lubricants, including esters.[citation needed]

Synthetic lubricant technology continued, and in the early '90s, developments continued to include Aerospace engineering, along with motorsports, including rallying and motorcycle racing. An early partnership was with Honda UK Motorcycle Race Team. With positive market exposure, coupled with a very high degree of research and development (R&D), and success in competition, Silkolene products became the market leader in the UK.

Presently, Silkolene products continue to be manufactured at Belper in England. They are now also made in Germany, the US, and SE Asia

I sent the drawings for laser cut this morning, here is x-ray view of the radiator housing.



Next on to-do list is to order Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm fan and design the piece which will serve as finger protector/bottom of the case.
I have to come up with some cool logo/drawing to cut to that piece.

Look what the cat dragged in:



2 of his homies and slides for the can!

Just as i thought, they fit in perfectly:



There's only room for the back cover, which will be made of aluminium also.
I'm going to mix paint to match the current color (Vintage red) and paint all parts that will fit outside with it.

Little text form update:

I did some calculations and noticed that i can barely fit an mATX motherboard. That's what i'm heading for now, will see if i have to regret this later.

Parts for the watercooling unit have been cut, now i'm waiting for them to arrive. I'm not much of a welder, so i'm leaving that part to my older brother.

I've been searching small round TFT display, plan is to fit it in the cap. It has to be smaller that 1.2" in diameter. Things to show from it: water temps, cpu temp, clock, date, etcetc.

Bitfenix Spectre Pro arrived today, it fits perfectly to the bottom. A little push and it locks itself to the sides. Now i can draw fangrills to that monster.
