Cant wait to see what your up to p0Pe.
come on p0pe , you have to hurry a litle bit
He is a master tease, I know this much.
I think he will be posting something pretty ridiculously awesome but I don't have a clue when.
Anyway sat here ready to be wowed.
awww blame me
C'mon, p0pe! I'm getting fidgety here
let me see if I have this right. All the work photographed so far has been farmed out to Nate or a relative?
-C'mon, man! We don't want a single post photo finish.
@Editor - I can't blame you anymore. I know how long it takes to dry mill a pocket in really deep plexi. -Forever! -Looks like the bit was getting hot too.
Alright alright you guys! I am awaiting some parts from Nate, but until then you can have a small update
Some of the parts, you can really see how HUGE the case is.
The asrock extreme11 is actually looking quite small in this case. But what motherboard would not?
A shot from the front. You can see the aquaero, and above or under it will sit an aquaadjust. The entire right side is reserved for reservoirs
The right compartment. This will hold two of the radiators, 4 pumps, the PSU and the reservoirs.
Corsair came trough, and the fan unboxing madness began.
Had help from my brother in law since we had to swap out the rings on the fans etc.
New fasion anyone?
Soo, the motherboard. Of course everything will be watercooled, and on this picture you can see the MIPS motherboard block mounted along with a single GTX680FTW with waterblock on. But would it not be a shame to only have one GFX card in a build like this?
The mips block will be routed up to the custom made cpu flow block that is en route from Nate. The crystal links will be close on this one
Top of the build. Cant really decide wether to go all white, or red and white.
And some stuff from Nate! I wanted to cover both the aquaero and the aquaadjust with these things, but I will have to get the modified to fir that need.
Bitspower and aquacomputer pr0n! The pumps will be connected with crystal link fittings and tubes. Two pumps for each loop. The thing on top of two of the pumps are flow meters.
More of the pumps. These will be mounted on custom plates on the radiator in the PSU compartment.
Proper sound is needed, so an asus xonar is also going in!
Fittings. I hit the MOTHERLOAD!!! No idea how many there are, but I think there might be enough!
Mhhhh pumps. I really like these tops. There will however, be made a custom front for them since the milling from AC is not really top notch on the front.
Had to drill in the 40 mm fans for the aquaadjust covers I got from Nate. Otherwise these would only fit with the ugly back out, and I wanted them to suck the air into the covers instead of blowing it out.
3 mounted, and there are not a lot of room to work with here -_-
Mounted, and you can see how I connected the aquaadjust together. There is not really room for sleeving inhere, so white wire and close crimping it is.
Rear of the covers.
And some Operating system goodies. Two ssd´s from samsung that should deliver over 1 gb/s when put in raid
512 GB of speed!
As in my M8 build there will be a reservoir to fill the vacant PSU hole. This has been modified a bit so it IMO looks better than the original. And have also been milled from clear acrylic!
The money shot!
Now for the expensive part. Grafic cards!
What is this? 3 exactly same cards, but different packaging ? ó_Ò What have you been smoking EVGA
One waterblock mounted, and DAMN do these things take up a lot of space with the stock cooler. Good thing there will be water on them huh?
Naked cards - NSFW
Funny how they weigh absolutely nothing without coolers.
Starting to look like something. Cant wait to get the custom tops on to this!
It will be fun to get power cables routed to this -_-
In all its glory.
And food for me. Next update will come when the parts from Nate gets here
I never want to see a naked EVGA card ever again...
Verry nice update !
And the best is yet to come with the yet to be shown RAM manifold.
Good heavens there must be like 5 or 600 euros worth of fittings in that box.
This is one expensive yet sexy build
LOL not even remotely close I think
Hmm, what looks best ?
The beef or the PC ?
Damn i cant choose :'( Both looks delicious !
I've always loved how you make these cheap builds!
Looking really sexy!
Hehe thanks guys
Stuff from Nate got here! So had a fun time mounting this thing to the EK ram dominator, and then cutting some tube off to the correct lengths.
Just miss the top and a few other things now for this to be done Next stop, o-rings!
Just awesome Hans!! I cant wait to see the liquid in the blocks
WOW those WC Block is something special can't wait to see the liquid on it.
A little video of it in the making
What is that brown stuff under the plexi? Plywood?
sick bro just pure awesomness... keep up the hard and good job!
