I started working on the acrylic with my new machine, it was a cheap thing but it is good enough for what I will need to do with it. I made some holes in the acrylic for the radiators.



Because the acrylic isn't wide enough to cover the whole case I had to use two pieces. Here you can see one piece for the first radiator.



and the two pieces. On the left side it is hard to see, because I already removed the tape from the acrylic. You can also see I started closing the frame at the back of the case.



On the left side you can see where the first radiator will be mounted. The other one will be placed on the right side.

Yes it's big, but I will need every inch. When you watercool a computer you always have a problem. If you use air from the case for the radiator the air is already a bit warm, and if you suck in air you get the warm air from the radiator in your case. Only solution is to bring the radiator outside the case, but that doesn't look good to my opinion. So my solution is to seperate the airflows with airducts.

Today I started working on the box for the harddisks. I will use an old watercoolingblock for the harddisks and also a normal fan.




First I needed to create piece of acrylic to mount the fan. I want it to fit in the front. I think it fits great.



Just taped the box together to see if everything fits.



I placed the dempers beside the box to get an idea what it will look like.

I'll have to wait for some materials before I can work on this box any further. I want to add a lot of details to this harddisk box. It will pobably take me 4 weeks to finish it i guess. For the acrylic I will use some special glue and some aluminium will also keep it together.

The first aluminium 'ring' that will be placed over the box is ready. I'll need 4 of these aluminium parts to mount the shocks. The shocks will be mounted between two of these rings.



the front view.



and from a slight angle



It took me about 4 hours to produce this ring, so that means I have about 12 hours of work for the other 3 rings.

Looks good though! And the first one is always the hardest and the following times you'll be quicker
With good music and a nice, cool beer work always goes down in a gulp...or two

Just a small update. The second aluminium ring is ready. I expect to finish the last two rings this weekend so I can start working on the details of the box. The shocks will be mounted between two aluminium rings, that's what the bumbs on the side of the rings are for.

All the rings are ready, I only will have to clean them, sand the edges and driil the holes to mount the schocks. The shocks will be mounted like this.



It is time to add some details to the box.

One question, how is that fan mounted? I can't see any screw, but I can see that it's a very tight fit with the acrylic - is that all that's holding it?
