Lets kick-off with a huge update!

First the case.




Asked for black rubbers from the start .. no red please.




Nice day in the sun.






Huge card!




And the mobo, mem and cpu




Playing around with pipes and possibilities






The first planning.




Quite some time went into figuring out something to stay within the budget.
But also a loop so you can always see it flowing and a construction to maintain stability.




Off to the attic



Always a bit scary at the start




But have to admit .. also afterwards this time



Sharp edges be gone.




And more pipes.




Top side done!






How strong it is even without any glue used.




Finishing the edges.








Inside the frame I used flexible tubing, used glue on the tube fittings for extra stability.
(Quite a struggle)












Intently engaged




And giving it a rest.

Lets see what I have left between my plexi stack




I wanted to replace the original tinted glass with blue plexi


















Removing all stickers with specs and serials




Lets change something about the ssd




With plex and old fan mounts


















An extra support/cover for the PSU








More about it later




Extra hole for the fan wires on the radiator




And removing some of the original PSU bracket for the new cover/support.



And finish the edges






Till next update!

And another big update!




First the liquidcooling parts.










Ready to mount ... but decided to polish them first.



5 minutes for all blocks with P600




And another 5 minutes with P2000/3000 I still had from previous projects.




And the last 5 minutes with polishing paste.




Clean it up.




And mount it.










And a small modification on the old heatsink.










Mounting the pump.












Coverplate for the PSU




Still not sure about GPU placement.




I do know I'm going to work with an extender.






Hmm..




Different idea!




Lots of drilling and tapping.














For more reinforcement






And for who's interested:




Till next time!

Yeah! Chop that sucker! You madman!
I don't even want to think about how hard it must have been to get the hose over the barbs on the inside of the pipes.

Not many see those details

Well ..obviously the first side is easy.
Second side of the hose is push it on, pull if off and shorten it, then repeat until it doesn't get pushed out on either sides any more then 2-3mm.
Then the PETG piping (which was very hard to get between 2 fittings for example on the bottom) will keep the barbs with hose perfectly in place inside the frame.

A bigger struggle was the crap left inside when they welded the frame ..

When I first saw this I was wondering how you were going to deal with running the coolant through the frame, it being aluminum and all. I never thought of flexing it. Beautifully simple. Hard to implement but still a great workaround.

Small update this time.
A case like this deserves a nice power cable




Got some wires at work.




And sleeved them.




Make nice connections






Braiding them.








And connect the last one.




Done!

This time a lot of cutting, sleeving and shrinking.
I wanted to shorten all cables and sleeve them without heatshrink.














Also using some of the same prototype cableclips I had left from my last project L3pipe.








Cables for GPU are done.




Up next the Semi-modular PSU .. ffs










Also nice to keep the wires in place




Sanded the PSU cover.




And tested the PSU








Cables in place






Playing around with lighting.




And changing all the cables for the fans, pump and lighting.










Also decided to use clips on the back and mount them to the mainboard tray.




Blue LED vandal resist power button on the back.




And rigid LED strips for the GPU back and GPU block.






All cables in place.






Next time .. the loop!

Finally .. the loop!




On this build it's 50/50 with bends and fittings.






Argh that space!




But the first connections are there.






And the last ones.












Also decided to change the SSD again, want the original HDD holder to be smaller.












Done




And polishing all acrylic sides.






Next time filling the loop.

Filling time!




First with clear liquid to see if everything goes according to plan.










All fine.




So I can replace with Aurora






The extra pipe takes care of extra stability for the construction, I could almost lift the case on it.






Also used black glue to hide the white leds and brown pcb




All air from the loop






Also black glue at the back




Stresstest!




Next time ... final pics




And a filling video.

And ... I'm very honored to reach second place in the contest





Thanks for following!
