    I suggest that we should hold up to the original intention, modify a CM HAF, not starting a scratch. Also by the word 'frame' i understand basic chasis - plain SECC frame completly stripped off w/o any plastic parts, fans, whatever, with the same dimensions. tho Confusis said we can cut it, im going the 'do not cut your HAF' way.

    Today's work, still a lot to do. What's new ?

    - Added a dual 200mm Rad on top
    - Made a custom "heat exchanger" on the back. It's made of a single block, which includes a 140mm rad in the center and 2 "channels" at the entry and at the exit. Those channels help to dissipate heat through the back fins.

    Hope you like the idea :lol:

    That's the Tyan Thunder n4250QE I think. C'mon, use the Tyan Thunder M4985-SI Expansion Board & HT-cards as well. You know you want to. :D

    Edit: Come to think of it - maybe you already did. Hard to tell from the pictures.

    That heat exchanger/radiator combo is delicious.

    Still working on mine. I'm not too experienced with sketchup so things are taking a bit more time to do than it would for others. I don't stand a chance against the epic monster hafenstein anyway. ;D

    Today's update :

    I'm near final design. Still have to refine the overall look, but I'm happy with the concept :D.

    Here are the pics (I know, it looks like a snail or a "@" :blush:)

    Outside :

    In blue, the radiators (passive and active) :

    Hardware and cooling bits :

    Air flow :

    I hope you like the idea. I still have to make the CPUs blocks.

    There won't be much tubing since I decided to use "channels" acting like passive heat-spreader.

    Edit : Close-up to the custom Radeon 6990 block (inspired by the enzotech GTX 295 block)

    Wow nice designs just wanted to ask a question i came across this from a link on MNPC Tech. I was wondering if i would be able to make an entry being i just joined the site or do you guys have a rule about being here for so long or something before you can enter? I looked but didn't see anything about this in any of the rules.

    Aye, that's looking sweet!

    Had even less time than I was expecting to work on this, and really can't dedicate any more time to it, so this is what I've got to finish with.
