    Sorry for the few pictures of the progress, and lack of explanation. I'll attach more. (Sorry for my Bad English.)

    The design and drafting was done by me and the acrylic cutting was done by a local shop.

    All leds are color adjustable. I think led moding is old fashioned but still cool... Plus, It fits well with the level 10.

    I still have a lot of things to learn... and try

    That's a not inconsiderable build, right there... GG for even tackling it on paper. :eek:

    EDIT:
    Is that THREE Level 10 'cases' you used...?!

    It's been a long time since someone did a level 10 mod. Looks great. :D

    What should I do?

    So; the Level 10 is the bit on the far right of the picture - what are the things holding the cooling system(s)...?

    A-Ha. It's an external radiator that's designed to be placed on a wall shelf. It serves as a stand and power distribution. The LCD also displays various information. I want to put a small computer, but it wasn't considered at the time of design and may be realized later...

    They mounted like this.

    I changed the shelf to a more durable one for sufficient support.

    This is the initial version in 2011. It's got everything about water cooling inside level 10 and can open and close the side.


    [​IMG]

    The cpu jacket was replaced first for this project.

    [​IMG]

    I added a led light structure on asus sound card. Led trip(below picture) is mounted at the far side.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    LED strip is wired, soldered and sleeved. I didn't have enough space to work, so I worked on the bed.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I did the same with the geforce GT 730 vga.

    [​IMG]

    Approximate design for GT 730 led structures.

    [​IMG]

    Tygon tube between pump and vga was replaced with rigid tube.

    [​IMG]

    Red acrylic was replaced with black.

    [​IMG]

    Asus sound card has been replaced by Echo indigo audio Interface. I used it for a laptop. It sounds very appealing. Green PCB is painted with a rubber spray.

    [​IMG]

    On the side I added a decoration that says echo digital audio.


    [​IMG]

    Luminous Level 10 has a lot of leds. It is a switch to turn on/off those leds and located at the bottom of gtx 730. I don't know if this will actually be used or not.

    Three plates with different colored leds overlap to complete a picture. The first one represents stars and mountains.

    All holes were drilled by hand.


    It's a joke. Most were laser cut at the local shop.

    The base of the external radiator. The acrylic bends well and the radiator is heavy, so it is designed to fully support it. There are wiring, led strip and lcd displays.

    It was considered to build a water lane with thick acrylic plates, but I'll try it later because I think it's hard with local shop's equipment.


    [​IMG]

    I thought about how I would use the extra space on the top of the radiator, so I made a 'logo box'. By replacing the acrylic plate, it can be replace various logos.


    [​IMG]

    Each radiators and level 10 is connected by shutoff valves for easy maintenance.

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    The hard bay, One of the prominent features of level 10, was replaced by led structures I designed.

    [​IMG]

    Led strip is also mounted inside.

    [​IMG]

    This is the front view. The wrinkles will disappear when the acrylic protective vinyl is removed.

    I bought some useful tools. I've used hair dryers or cheap things so far.

    A lot of us have worked off our bed, but this is the first time anyone has soldered on their bed. :eeek: I suggest a sheet of wood or something if you do that again. For many years my 'workbench' was a plywood checkerboard tossed on an available spot.

    The 2600k is finally replaced by amd's masterpiece - 3950x. Thanks mom. (๑˘ꇴ˘๑)

    But the thermal grizzly comes out as a solid **** at first... then drips like a diarrhea. How Could This Happen To Me...

    [​IMG]

    There is Nothing as rewarding as replacing a pch fan in an x570 system. Imagine the tremendous noise from that little fan.

    [​IMG]

    All tubes will be replaced by rigid tubing.

    I think configuration waterways is the most fun part in the water cooling works.


    [​IMG]

    Workspace. This tv older than 2600k but it works well. Best of all, I won't be bored while building.
