    This time I got to start on the watercooling unit. This will be a frame in witch there will be 2 Magicool 4x120mm radiators in, to waterpumps and my homemade reservoir. This frame will be mounted on a frame, so it will be very easy to take out the watercooling from the back of the case.

    4x120? I didn't know anyone made one! That's a very useful rad layout.

    Cheap, they are made by Magicool IIRC, they also do 3x3 or 9x120mm rads..

    The pics I take is with the surroundings, but I link these pics direct from my website. So it will be more work for me to do it with background, but maybe I should do that in the future.

    yea, they make some seriuos nice coolers. Just as passiv coolers these two rads I will use are very effective......so with 2 x 250mm fans on each I think they will be very effective:D

    Nah vi er da et par stykker ;)

    Topic: Great mod, I bet it'll be one heavy machine, but who cares if it's containing all the goodies you want ;)
    I like your radiators! 2x 4x120mm :jawdrop:, that should give more than enough cooling for your two loops, also probs on your res. :thumb:! Keep it up, I'll be watching here, for sure.

    Jepper, selvom vi er et lille land, kan vi da godt lege lidt med blandt de store

    Topic : Yea, it's gonna be heavy......a part of my anti thief plan for this build. If you build it heavy enough, no one will run with it....:D
    No, it's just gonna be heavy doing all the things and plans I have for this build.....very heavy

    Yea, it's gonna be very big. The watercooling unit alone will count for around 40% of the insite space. Then I want some fun stof like elektric motors and other stof like that, and that will take around 15% of the space. So if I have desided to make it aircooled without the electrical items I have in mind, it would have been a hole different case, specially in size. That's the price for some serious watercooling and fun stof :D

    Making a reservoir of this size is not a novice job on metalturning mashine. So start with some smaller projects, before you make one like this. The alu it self cost arround 50 $ so it have to be right the first time you make it, or else it can be an expensive experience for you :thumb:

    So it's time to next update. This time I have made some further build on the watercooling unit. I have desided to make some changes in the name of functionallity. So the Reservoir will be moved up in the case over level of the blocks for the CPU and GPU, and not be a part of the watercooling unit. It will give some more space down there for other funny things, more options for better cooling, and it will be much more easy to fill water on it.
    So this watercooling unit will contain the two 4x120 radiators, and the two waterpumps. I will then use this frame to organise the hoses, so the 2 inch betwin the rads will be used for bending the hoses to all come through the same place. So the four bars welded together in the middle, will be where the four hoses form the unit will come out of. To with water up to hardware, two with water down to the pumps.
