ReDoZz has yet to learn the way of the Dremel
Project: Black 'n Blue Simplicity - Update 16 December 2012








My name is Benhar and I live Sweden.
I'm going to build and modify a computer system thatís going to reference to my opinions and what
a good-performing computer system needs to be stable, cooled down, quiet and totally clean.
Iím going to put my photography skills just in case taking good and nice looking pictures.
The entire interest started when my twin brother Kosovar^ infected me with his computer projects

The plan about which equipment i need to succeed with te project is a computer case in a ATX-
factor form and be a full tower chassi to make room for all the cooling equipment i would use.
The case going to be modified to fit a 4x120 Radiator, 1x120 radiator in back, 2x240 radiators in
sandwich configuration on the floor, make place for 2 cylinder-formed reservoir outside the 5,25"
bays and find a good place for the water pumps there i can modify incase reducing vibrations and
noise.

I will also modify the side panel with a acrylic window because i want to share my good job to
other people around me and in forums, websites as well.
I have been working on my Power Supply and sleeved all the cables separately with sleeving from
"www.djungelapa.se".In my eyes is that a method to get a special feeling about whatís inside of
the case, it fells more "fully" and not that empty as well the cables are sleeved together.
This system is going to be as quite as possible, noise reductions plates are going to be used
both inside the case but also on places there it lots of free, moving and unused space as the
side panels, bottom- and top panel.
The outside is going to be stock, in color way because i donít like reflective colorís. Just
black both inside and out! And my decided name for this project going to be " Black 'n Blue
Simplicity ".

Sponsorship from Fractal Design

Hi all Bit-Tech members!
Hope you will like this project log and its results.

I want to thank Adriana at Fractal Design for sponsoring out of a Fractal Design Define XL, but
may regret that I will have to cut and operate the chassis a little.

I will soon begin to remove the mass of unnecessary, and the first thing I will remove the HDD
cages on the lower floor. Instead of cages, I will have two radiators in the "Sandwich PnP
configuration" with the intake on the right side and exhaust on the left.
After that, the drawings made at the top to make room for a 480mm radiators from XSPC or Thermo
Chill

I will also replace the plate in the middle of an aluminum plate where I will have logos and
names of companies that sponsored me during the project. And this will surely CNC milled.

I hope you like the plans so far, but was a quandary in that it can be a lot of changes.
Have a nice continued day!



And here are some pictures of the Define XL that will have saws that Dremels to laugh with joy
during the project.

Working on chassie

Now I have begun to clear the chassis of the unnecessary, as well to save on weight before you to
take several pounds through the project period.
I mentioned in my previous post that I will run the district dual 2x120mm radiatorn down on the
ground floor of a principle called "Sandwich". How it works, I can describe a little short. There
will be an air tunnel that will go through the computer downstairs. The heat will be generated
will go out of the chassis sides where it will be cut and filled radgrills.
The fans on the right side will suck air and blow into the first radiator, a fan behind the first
will help to suck air and blow towards the second radiator, behind the second radiator to direct
a fan to expel the air through the chassis side.

I started by removing the mounting plate for the HDD cage and later drilled out the rivets on the
plane and later on the bottom to remove the.
And even then it started to plan a little how the radiator will sit. May also fit 140x2 but I
will probably run at 120x2 ist to place the radiator better in height.

I also put tape on the back of the motherboard plate as you see, what is inside the margin which
will take away so as not to interfere with the fan air flow.

[U] Some pictures of the work follows below: [/ U]

Watercooling parts and plans

I have been thinking clearly about what the parts I'll use for my project. I begin with the radiators:
-a 480 radiator will be placed on top.
-a 120 radiator will be placed back on the chassis
- two 240 radiators will be located in Sandwich Principle on the bottom floor, making it possible I have to remove all hard drive rack there.

- CPU will be water cooled
- Three GPUs will be water cooled with water block from EK with a Serial EK GPU Bridge
- RAM-modules will be cooled with water block
- The motherboard will be cooled with a full cover or block that is adapted for mobo.


These parts, I have received so far:
CPU: EK Water Blocks EK-Supreme LT - Acetal
GPU: EK Water Blocks EK-FC480 GTX - Acetal
RAD: EK Water Blocks EK-cool stream RAD XT 120

Now to the pictures. The pictures can speak a bit of themselves in this case!

I will plague the chassis considerably, but it will be wonderful with more space for other water cooling items.
I hope you will enjoy it!

Clean the CPU waterblock, sketchung up rad-position on top

Has now taken the big step and started planning what was going to sit on top.
Here I use out of a calculation model for a XSPC RX480 radiator that will fit best!
Will be wonderful to start working soon, but I wait for better times and new purchases will revive the project.

Future sponsors will but there may be surprises!

Also took the opportunity to clean my water block. But I took a couple of different methods to arrive at a desired result.
I started by removing the block and clean POM'et which was very easy. But when we get to the copper part so it became more difficult.
I made a greedy attempt and used ketchup ... proved to be good but not quite 100% effective!
Then I had and bought lemon water and poured into the block and let it stand for four hours while I was doing something else.
When I came back they had all the coverings come off and it was enough just to rinse off with warm water.
But still, it was not 100%.
Then I poured in the squeezed lemon lime and waited an hour and then it was all clean! Above expectations, it was lemon-lime great for cleaning the copper block and it's something that I highly recommend!

Will thank Phantek USA for this wonderful sponsorship, happiness and love for you <3!

But now the pictures:


- Phanteks PH TC14PE_BL (CPU-COOLER)
