    PlayDoh Silverstone TJ07

    Anew worklog:

    At this worklog ı use my old Silverstone TJ07. I call it as PlayDoh of the cases.I want to make 3 different cases from this case.

    First worklog TJ07 V1

    What I want to achieve are:

    To combine front panel with the side window.
    To install liquid cooling and achieving this via acrylic pipe.
    To use a special distributor for water distribution as midplate.
    To enlarge the case for radiators since it is not wide enough.
    To stick some parts into the case to obtain a dynamic view

    First meeting with acrylic pipes. I had worked before with glass pipes and Copper pipes.
    But Acrylic was differnt. First experiments -how to measure -

    Some tools to work. A plastic mieter box , a handsaw, and a file for the ends.

    and some experiments to bend

    İt was easy to bend L parts, but U and S parts was difficult.
    Therefore I made m y bending table.
    I can bend with different Radius and bend in 2 and 3 directions

    Fans were taken out to enlarge the case for 2x Thermochill 360 rads

    I made a radiator shroud for fans and used a phobya 3x rad. Gril.

    This was applied on the back cover.

    I never thought a routing midplate could be created that easy.

    Love the design, and what you're doing with the power supply - especially contrasted with the bolts on the front.

    My only thing is those pumps... You don't have them even remotely close to decoupled - they're bolted straight into the case. That's about the worst case (no sorry, they also don't even have the benefit of the case around them to silence pump noise) - that is the worst possible scenario for noise that could happen.

    All the noise the pump motor itself makes has absolutely nothing to dampen the sound, and all the vibrations it makes (especially from being suspended from one cross-section) is going to go straight into the case using it as a reverberating chamber.

    Coming from the perspective of someone who sees one of the major benefits of water-cooling as its silence, this seems just painful...

    Do you have any way of silencing it, or is noise just simply not an issue at all? It's just that it would be a shame to have such a beautiful rig not be on display, but if it is on display, it'd scare off admirers. :p

    You know friend , pumps and tops are mounted on a separate plate. Therefore it is not difficult to isolate this plate with a silikon gasket.

    And ı have no sound problems with my swiftech 655 pumps.


    You said …. Coming from the perspective of someone who sees one of the major benefits of water-cooling as its silence, this seems just painful...

    I agree with you … I have never tried to make silent PC with active cooled radiators., 10-15 fanns, 2 pumps .But ı cann think it with a passive radiator .

    ^Ahh, that makes a bit more sense.

    I'm just particularly sensitive to noise, though I find using a pair of 140mm noctuas on each of my radiators is perfectly quiet.

    I was just asking because I've worked with those pumps before, and have seen vibration issues from them. It might just be that mine weren't quite as well calibrated.
