Custom external system w/ help from DangerDen

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Here are a few pics of my progress with my custom DangerDen made case and setup for an external water cooler. The first pic is a 3D model I made to go by. I have about a month of planning and buying into this so far and hopefully it will be done in another two weeks (payday). I realize it's a bit over-the-top/expensive, but I like to create. As of right now my list goes as follows:

DangerDen one-off cube case (12.75"x12.75"x12.75") $153
Swiftech MCP655-B (1200L/hr.) pump $90
Magicool 240x240mm (low rpm fan) radiator $85
Random lengths of 3/8" and 1/2" tubing ~$15
Tecnofront Visual Trap v2 reservoir w/ flow meter $50
Bitspower X-Station power splitter w/ blue LEDs $25
Frozencpu 36" sleeved 4-pin molex extension ~$10
1 to 3 external 4-pin molex PCI power bracket $5
4x Scythe (800rpm) 120mm Slip-Stream sleeved fans $60
"Infinite" pump mount bracket $20
Total so far=$513

Still to come:
Quick d/c connectors, various nozzles (black) from Koolance
Some fans for the rear panel of the case
Koolance CPU-370 & Koolance AR697


I'll try to get back on and post more pics as I get more done. Lemme know what you think. smile.gif

Nice work!

I'm building something similar with a mountain mods pedestal 24.

How are you doing your power/fans ? I see a PCI plate of some sort and the power block in the middle. mind sharing how/why you hooked it up that way ?

Post me a link when you get some pics up! I couldn't find anything close to what I wanted. I'm sticking my case on a shelf of a drawer/stand thing so this works perfect!

As for the fans solution. I wanted this to be fully modular/external. So I am going with quick d/c on back panel for hoses and for power the 36" molex extension will run from the PCI panel on the back of my PC to the splitter block. The block can power like 12-14 things. Mine will power 6 fans and my pump. Therefore, It can all be unhooked quickly like a Koolance Exos.

very nice, i will look into that. I am going with fully external too.

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooling/1012592-build-log-external-thermal-control-system.html

That is the build log, not much there as parts are still being shipped. expect to get a shipment today and tomorrow and the case Wed.

Then I probably have a week or more of fitting and buying all the small little things I have forgotten.

going with 3 GTX360 Rads on the triple mounts on the side, all pushing out. 3 fans up front sucking in and 3 up back sucking in. Same idea with QDC except putting them on the case (drilling 2 holes for them). Way over spec'd the cooling system because at a later stage i plan to add 2 1U servers and 1 laptops to it with custom loops.

good luck on your build, post more pics!
