Snowflake - In Win H-Frame 2.0 for Computex 2017

Hy everybody

itīs time for a new Worklog


This Project is build for Aquatuning / Alphacool & their Booth on the Upcoming Computex 2017.

We work together with Alphacool, Aquatuing & Phobya for a long time, so you can imagine , when we were asked if we could build a System for the Computex for them, we really want to create something special.

So we picked an In Win H-Frame 2.0 as base for this project.

Our Plans for this Project are simple but effective, so this time we wonīt reshape the whole case. Instead of that we will polish a few details on the outside and add some more details on the Inside.

Beside that weīre going to build a Custom Watercooling Loop with a unique Reservoir which will catch a lot of attention when its finished.

This will be the base for our mod.....









Like you can imagine.....we already started the disassembling process...












As next weīre going to disassemble one of Alphacools Eisbrecher Radiator so that we can change its colors so that it matches our concept....

Itīs time for the first update!

In the last days we overworked the parts of the disassembled Eisbrecher....

First, we removed the paint from all parts. Then we polished everything until the parts were nice & shiny. At least we added a bit of paint to the Face & Bottomplate....









After that was done, we switched over to the Alphacool Eisblock XPX CPU Cooler so that we could start the same procedure on the next part...

Sick work with the radiator and cpu block! Really nice. What was the procedure, did you use aceton to remove the paint and the matt it down with sandpaper and then polish it? Looks amazing!


Unbelievable to think you can get that amazing surface behind that black paint...

Yeah it was nearly like that, we used Drano instead of aceton (a simple household pipe cleaner) to remove the paint in a water bath and it works really awesome....after that we only had to matt it a bit with sandpaper and then started the polishing process like you already thought....

As next we took the rest of the case a bit more apart so that we could reach the both sheds with the acrylic layer inside, because we want to polish them like the radiator and the CPU Cooler...









Beside that the Fans and the mainboard for this project arrived!!!
So we want to send out a big Thank you to Asrock & In Win for their Help and Support on this Project!!!!!









and we also cut out a few details which we will need later on.....



and here is a short video of the cutting process....

thx m8!!!!


Computex is getting closer and closer....so itīs time for the next update....

In the last days we disassembled those 2 sheds with the acrylic layer inside so that we could sand/polish the outsides of both of them....after that we put everything back together so that we could continue with the next parts....













As next weīre going to start the work on the custom Reservoir which will be shaped like a half snowflake....

Like mentioned in our last Update we continued the work on this project with the reservoir for the watercooling loop.....and like mentioned it will be a custom shaped reservoir in the shape of a half snowflake.

So as first step we cut out a Plexiglas Top and Bottom Layer .....






After that we cut out both middle layers with the water channels in them....





As next we mounted the mainboard & the PSU inside the Case for a first test and to have a quick look at it.....







With both parts mounted, we decided that we have to overwork the Color scheme of the PSU a little bit...so we took it out and disassembled it so that we could change the Paint on that Top Plate so that it fits our needs....

thank you!


As next we mounted Radiator & Fans inside the Case so that we could take a closer look how much space will be left between the radiator & the reservoir when everything is mounted in place, just to see if we will run into problems....









Beside that we sanded and painted the HDD / SSD Holders.....






And we also continued the work on the reservoir. First we glued the 2 inner layers together so that we could overwork the inside of the waterchannels in 1 step.






After the glue was dry, we directly took a few small needle files and a cordless drill so that we could overwork the inner edge.....after that we switched from needle files to sandpaper....so that we could add the next layers as soon as possible....

basically I didn't like this case, but seeing it closer with your choice of hardware, and this shiny radiator, I realise it's a very great case...great job as well...

thank you m8īs !!!!



Itīs time for the next Update:



But before we start....one of the most important Parts has arrived. So we want to send out a big Thank you to Nvidia for their Help & Support on this Project!!!!









Beside that we finished the work on the reservoir overall the sanding & polishing process took around 4-5 days but weīre happy with the result....









....and we also prepared a flow indicator for the watercooling loop....not sure if weīre really going to use it....but itīs good to be prepared.....

With the arrival of the graphic card and the finished reservoir....we couldnīt resist....and mounted everything for a quick test....










After that we prepared a watercooling block for the grapic card so that we could add it to the loop as well....









After the diassembly we put both parts into a chemical bath to remove all the paint. As next we already added fresh paint so that we could finally sand and polish the last details after the paint has dried.....

As next we continue the work on the GPU Cooler, after adding those fresh white paint....we took some sandpaper....and started to remove the paint partially so that we could polish those parts afterwards....









Beside that we cut out a few more details which will be used on various spots in the case....








after that we put the GPU back together so that we could mount it inside the case again....

thanks m8!





With all parts mounted and everything prepared, we finally could start to bend the tubes for the watercooling loop....















after that we filled the loop with blue coolant and started to mount the last details so that we could make some final pics before we have to ship everything to the Computex....
