NCASE Mod. As yet untitled (and very much a WIP...)

So - I've been kicking this one around for a while, and thought if I posted something on bit, it would make me actually pull my finger out and do something about it.

I've got my trusty NCASE that I want to shoehorn my current #1 system into, complete with a full WC loop. It'll be total overkill, and as you probably know, I like making computers that are small (and quiet).

I suspect this won't be anything near silent, but still.

The biggest problem I'm facing is the location of pumps and reservoirs. I've seen a few versions of water-cooled NCASEs recently, which either house the pump and res outside, like this one:



...and FrozenQ even make an exterior reservoir for the M1:



I don't want to do that. There's 'dead' space in the front between the pop-on front panel, and I reckon there's wasted space under the top panel too.

This gives me an idea...

I'm aiming for a 45mm(ish) rad in the side and a 30mm rad in the bottom (with thin fans) to cool a 5960X, a Titan X (Pascal), and maybe the RAM if I can fit in a RAM block for funsies.

So I suppose, the specs will be:

- Asrock X99e/ITX
- nVidia Titan X Pascal
- Samsung 950 Pro 512Mb
- Corsair SF600 PSU
- 32Gb Crucial Ballistix DDR4
- 1Tb 850 EVO

...and in terms of watercooling:

- Bitspower Full Cover ASRIX99 block
- Aquacomputer Titan X Block plus active cooling backplate
- EK rads (for now)
- as yet undecided pump
- as yet undecided fans
- hard tubing? don't know yet.

I'll be doing custom cables for it too.

My thinking is perhaps fitting a custom-fit res into the front (in the void), but pump location is currently bothering me.

Anyway - initial ramble over. I'm going to go away to do some thinking and planning.

I'm thinking combo res and pump top in the front of the case - I'm busy scheming some 3D models!

Would an XSPC ion fit?

I've already got one of those - it's excellent - in fact it's brilliant for a SFF build - thanks both

However - I've got some custom acrylic ideas brewing - watch this space!

Nice, really tempted to pick up an NCASE. I'm between that and one of the new Caselabs Bullet's. Will be interesting to see how you fit that all in the NCASE

edit - can I just ask if you dont mind, did you get hit with much import cost on the NCASE?

They're really great - now there's a decent wave of SFF PSUs from which to choose.

I can't remember how much import duty I got 'done' for - could probably find the paperwork though! I will probably end up ordering some more bits from them anyway - as I could do with a couple of spare panels...!

So - work has got in the way of my planning and scheming over the last week, but I now have a head full of ideas. Now to get them on paper...
