    To instal watercooling1x loop with 2x rads (Push-pull)
    To install liquid cooling via Copper and acrylic pipe.
    To use a special distributor for water distribution as midplate, laser cutted.
    To enlarge the case for radiator fans since it is not wide enough.

    to enlarge the case , fans were taken out of the case

    I made a radiator shroud for fans



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    and used a self made lazer cutted rad grill on the shroud

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Corsair 800 D has a 360 rad gril on the top.

    I want to use an Alphacool UT 60 – 480 RAD on the top of the case . therfore ı added 4th
    120 mm fangrill with drilling .



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    but there was a problem to mount the 480 rad . on the top of the case was a pit 5mm for 360 rads



    [​IMG]


    these coused problems at the inside and outside.. ı solved these problem with a 120 mm gasket at the inside and a self made 5mm rubber 360 gasket at outside..

    Alphacool UT 60 480 mounted on the topwith push-pull fans and Koollance shroud

    480 mm rad mounted on the top



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    pull fans mounted with koolance shroud



    [​IMG]




    And Monsta 240 mounted at his place.



    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    One of Connection threads from Monsta , was used for draining with a single rotary 90 adapter and a mini valve of Bitspower.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    becouse pull fanns of monsta was at outside of the case. , it was made an shroud onthe backcover.

    ORGANİZİNG 5.25” DRİVE BAYS 1

    The depht of my 5.25 drive bays is only 60 mm. Bu ı want to use it


    1 - I want to use the ON- OF control panel of corsair 800D.

    [​IMG]

    2- I want to use my Thermaltake media lab

    [​IMG]

    3- I want to turn of the power of the HDD if it is necessary.

    I could use my self built 4 way HDD switcher

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    But ı made a new controller for leds and HDD switcher together

    I have 3 ledsrips in the case and 6 leds on blocks. I want turn of the leds strips and dimm if it is necessary . Therefore ı usued 5 K ohm ON-OF pottanciometers. And red leds to see the on- of positions.

    And one 2 way ON-OF switch for HDD with a yellow led on

    Loving the work so far, just a question are you keeping the industrial look or will you be smoothing/filling the points where the Alu meets at the bends?

    4 - I want t to use a fan controller , Lamptron FC5 V3, to control rad fans (13 fanns on 240rad and 480 rad - push-pul)


    [​IMG]


    And control the fluid temps at rad outputs , with aquacomputer inline sensors on Lamptron


    [​IMG]


    I will to monitor the pumps speed on lamptron and control the pumpspeed with FC5V3 (it has 30 watt outpoot per chanell)

    But my old swiftech 655 has no tacho output to monitor accurately the pumps speed. İt must be modified .

    First the tacho outpoot must be found on the PCB


    [​IMG]


    scraped the coating off the little circle at PCB with a dremel till I see copper .


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Soldered a 3 rd wire to monitor the pump speed


    [​IMG]


    Changed the power cables and used a 3 pin female fan connector , to connect it to fan controller.


    [​IMG]


    You can see the speed of pump on LCD Display and adjust the speed with knob at Lamptron FC5
    V3

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Something to add:

    Swiftech 655 pump is working at

    Nominal voltage 12 V DC

    Nominal power (@ 12 V) 24 W

    Nominal current (@ 12 V) 2 amps

    Therefore you need a digital fan controller min 25 watt to control it over fan controller.

    But to see only the speed of the pump,you cann use any digital fan controller.

    T o do this you must add the yellow tacho cable of pump , to the yellow tacho kable of fan controller.

    [​IMG]

    That is all.

    update 19/08/2014

    recent addıtıons to the case…

    There is a problem on most Mainboards if we cool it with MB Waterblock…

    You must see this image


    [​IMG]


    İnstead of the BLACK BEAUTY of rampege 4 extrem black edition.
    I think , ıt is one of the best design



    [​IMG]


    I planned to use the original cooler of the MB but painted .



    [​IMG]


    But it was not all … cooler does not cover all the metal look . there is 5-6 mm space
    between EL I/O shield and cooler .



    [​IMG]


    therfore ı mounted an U shaped 2mm black plexi ,



    [​IMG]


    and then mounted the cooler.


    the results

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]



    UPDATE 20/08/2014


    My firend wanted to see some logos on his Case.He likes the logos… I draw 3 logos for the case. And laser cutted all together. but the pieces were too small and there was too many parts.
    I came home with a great plastic bag


    [​IMG]

    Took quite long to classify..

    A Repuclic of gamers logo (relief) and illuminated


    [​IMG]


    And special logo for my friend to SLİ bridge .

    his name is Salih SakSAK , I made a logo from the first letters of the name… SSS
    (relief) and illuminated .
