It's that time again! This will be my 3rd project worklog that I have posted on bit-tech. My first was my Wooden PC, completed in early 2004: Worklog: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=38878 (pics are all dead) My second was my Aluminum/Copper PC, completed early 2008: Worklog: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=145057 And that brings us to now, I present to you: The Mineral Oil PC! Here are my preliminary sketches: Description of the general layout: Bottom compartment: 2 Thermochill PA 120.3 Radiators: Link to product 6 Noctua NF-P12 120mm Fans: Link to product 1-2 Eheim 1250 120v Pumps: Link to product The fans on the front and back of the case blow inwards to feed the 6 fans (3 on each rad), which blow outwards. The bottom of the case will probably be mesh. Middle tank: Motherboard: ? CPU: ? RAM: ? 2 HD4850's: Link to product Silverstone ST75F 750W PSU: Link to product OCZ Modstream 450W PSU (for the pelt): Link to product D-Tek Fuzion CPU Waterblock: Link to Product 2 Thermalright T-Rad^2 GPU Coolers: Link to Product 226w Peltier (for the CPU): Link to product I still haven't chosen my setup because I want to go with a Core i7, but they're pretty pricey at the moment. I'm hoping that by the time I buy the parts, the price will have dropped. If they don't decrease by the time I'm ready to make my choice, I'll probably buy 2 SSD's for some RAID 0 sweetness with a S775 config. Otherwise, my platter HDD's will go in the upper compartment. Top Compartment: 2x WD 500gb GP Hard Drives (maybe) 2x WD 250gb Hard Drives (maybe) The top is an exit for cables from the"back" (top in my config) of the motherboard. If I don't go with SSD's, I'll have my hard drives in this compartment too. As you can see in the pics, the tray will have 2 handles for easy removal from the oil. Everything that will be submerged in the oil will be attached to the tray. The top of the case will also be hinged for easy access to the oil. I figured this was my chance for sub ambient cooling. Since there is no air in the case, I can safely cool down to below the dew temperature without having to water proof everything. That's why I'm going with the pelt. (It will get it's own PSU). And that's all for now. I'm not sure when I'll start buying materials, I think I might look for some sponsors first; this setup is going to be pricey.
