First off, I would like to start this thread by saying thank you to everyone here. For the past few months I have been reading and looking at people’s work on this forum and it is amazing what everyone is doing. Thank you for the ideas and the information that is shared without a second thought. The initial reason I started thinking about designing my own case was because I could not find what I was looking for—quality or functionality (water cooling). I realized the design was going to take some time, so I went ahead and bought a TJ07; it's a great case, but I want to make my own. When I first started working on the design, I thought this was an original idea. I didn’t realize there was a whole group of people out there doing this. Here are a few pictures of the design as it has progressed: The picture above was my first attempt, but I realized it was not going to work so I scraped it. The following pictures are the beginning of my new design: Currently my plan is to use an SR-2 motherboard, have three separate cooling loops, with three radiators, three reservoirs (Aquatube G ¼), and three pumps. I would like to put in dedicated LCDs for temperature monitoring like one of the murder mod cases. I am trying to figure out how to use aqua computer’s Aquaero to monitor three pumps (pretty sure it works great for two pumps, but not sure about three). I am not sure if I want to use the aqua computer aquastream XT or use the Laing DDC-Pump; if I use the Laing I have to use the aquacomputer poweradjust (not sure how that will work with more than two pumps either or what happens if I need to have two poweradjusts in the same computer (software issues?). Other than that I need to work on layout of the inside of the case and styling of the front panel of the case. I am also planning on trying to design my own hot swap drive bays with custom back planes and make the motherboard tray removable without disconnecting cables (got the idea from craigbru in Project: OSIDIAS) by using contact terminals; this also means I will have to do my own PCB layout, which is totally new to me. So, this one is going to take a while due to money and developing the needed skills, but if you have any suggestions or design ideas please let me know because I need the help. Also, please let me know if you know anything about Aquacomputer’s monitoring and control hardware/software—I am struggling with it.
