Project M8 (CaseLabs M8 workstation mod) COMPLETED! Final pics on page 33

Hello there, and welcome to project M8!


The idea:
The idea came when i first saw a post on overclock.net, where a person named Jim showed some prototype pictures of a new case lineup. The company he started was named CaseLabs, and they specialize in high end enthusiast watercooling cases. I knew that this was a case that was build to house a HUGE watercooling system, and wanted to see how far i could push it. Jim was generous enough to offer sending one of his cases all the way to Denmark for me to play with!

The watercooling:
I will put a lot of time into creating a watercooling loop that is simple, silent and easy to fill and bleed. My latest project PC-Beto had its flaws with the watercooling, one being that it was compact, and components was pretty tight screwed together.

Components:
Case:
CaseLabs M8

watercooling:
3*360 mm radiator
2*laing d5 vario pumps
Bitspower fittings

More components will follow as i figure out what to put in

And now, lets get to the fun part! This project is going to progress slow since school and other stuff is taking up a lot of time, but i will try to update it on a regular basis! But on to some pictures, since half of you dont read this anyway

Enjoy!

Full review of the case:
http://www.itrends.dk/31638/

First, some pictures of the case itself:








As you can see the case is absolutely HUGE and will have plenty of room for loads of watercooling and hardware!



I will be using this combo of pumps and bitspower fittings, and the first update you will see sometime next week will be the mounting of the two pumps to the radiator.



This combo will sit in the psu compartment in the bottom.



Still havent decided weather to use the EK reservoir, or to make one myself. (am i the only one that think that picture want to dance with me?)



For ease of acces, i will use these awsome QDs. They are 100 times better to work with than other QDs you can get, and only spill about 1 drop when disconnected.



And just to give you a clue to what the general theme will look like

I hope you will enjoy this project, and i sure look forward sharing it with you!

-p0Pe

A great thank goes out to the sponsors of this project, Jim from caselabs for sending me the case, Vincent from bitspower for providing me a huge load of fittings, Gareth from Corsair for sending SSDs and RAM, and Daniel from Coolbits for providing watercooling parts!

Thank you all

Man... I am behind schedule before I have begun lol! Just got a call today that i cant use the schools machine shop before after the easter vacation -.- The plan was to machine the pump holder today, but i guess that have to wait

But to give you something to look at, here is the design for the pump holder:


Could be doable with a hacksav, and some files but i also cant get the material before after easter -.-

awesome case!! nothing less.
it should take very good care of your heated components, AND your weary ears.
the design, imho, looks like something that could hold a high eff, low noise, watercooling OverKill kit.

And with the case in the hands of THE PoPe.. what could ever go wrong.

One things for sure, my eyes are on this one for sure.

Heh... They DO say I'm blind!

Just had a thought!

pOPe we should make a watercooling company. Mostly because of the name.

pOPe & Angel introduce "Holy Water" ---

And it begins!



Remember this? That was the project of the day

First, i had to mill down a 10 mm alu plate, since i did not have any 5 mm lol! Then bolting them together, and went to war with the mill.



As you can see, i just printed out the cad drawing, and used that as reference.



And on it went. Luckily this mill got "autopilot" so that I can just set it to move at a certain speed, and comfortably take my pictures.



For the detailed parts, I had to use a smaller bit, and then just fill the edges.



Finished middle pieces. The one on the right have been glasblasted, but will need to have another go.



And this is how they mount on the pumps.



And how they mount on the radiator! I will put some rubber pieces under each end to dampen vibrations. Once all of this is mounted I should have a great pump setup



And the finished result. Only need to weld it, and then grind it down again, give it another go in the sandblaster and maybe paint it, yet to be decided

I must apologize for the lack of updates, but exams are coming up at school, and there is quite a few things to do

NICE!

Finally some action in this worklog!

I hope you know how to weld aluminum, because when it goes wrong... IT GOES WRONG!
And those "legs" you are going to weld on the beam are very thin!
