    Hello !

    I would like to present you my new project ! The idea is to create a case with a full passive watercooling.

    Let place to the sponsors!

    Great concept! I started a similar design years ago and still haven't finished it. Your looks much cleaner!

    What's the radiator size going on the back? A 480x480mm?

    Looks like a square version of my Inverted build, even the mobo is the same :)
    Don't forget to include the wiring inside the upright panel in your calculations, as my case could almost not be closed once all the wiring was installed.

    Going to keep an eye on this :)

    Looks Promising. :D
    I agree with Meelobee, since I just finished a rig that needed more room for wires. The SATA cables in particular gave me trouble. They insist on not laying flat, and you are stuck with set lengths.

    Lovely. Are the MDF-and-Plexi sandwiches permanent now, or can you dismantle them for painting?

    Looks like they're held together with a long threaded rod with nuts on it.

    Very cool project, can't wait to see how this will turn out :)

    I'm really keen to find out how you get on with those passive radiators. I suspect that they are surprisingly effective, but I'm a bit worried that the push fittings are not very tight.

    Thanks ! Yes the sandwiches are removable for painting ;)

    I will see if the Cora Cap are efficient. Normally the ten radiators will be enough.

    I would suggest that you build in a backup system in case those radiators are not good enough.

    I have build a build with the exact same radiator, and it could cool a phenom X4 965 cpu and a gtx 470, but at quite high water and component temperatures. The solution for the build was to put in a single 120 mm radiator.

    All in all, a thin 240 mm radiator with low rpm fans should be as effective as those passive radiators.

    I do like the design. Looks a bit like a Thermaltake level 10 case.

    Chances are that you will. So you might as well built it in from the start:)

    What you can also do, is to build in a system so that you can plug an external radiator to the build.

    I have a set of bitspower fittings at home where i plan to do just this. Will upload a picture when i get home:)
