    Recently I've built a few large external radiator boxes:

    This build log is for an external radiator box to house a 560 radiator, ATX PSU, fan controller, and reservoir.

    Building the frame for these boxes involves the same basic steps: cutting, drilling, tapping and milling out small areas (so that hex nuts can be inserted into a t-slot post assembly).

    I love the versatility of t-slot extrusion. Threaded "holes" can be added anywhere along a slot by using set screws to fasten two nuts around a center nut.

    I used my Avid CNC to cutout the grill pattern in the front sheet.

    The radiator will be attached to an inner sheet.

    What's the reason for a full ATX power supply? Is there a requirement for more than the 12V rail?

    It's my understanding that the client just happens to have an extra ATX PSU lying around. That's all.
