Made from wood: Not named yet... With watercooling

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi!

So i tought that i could start thread here from this oncoming wooden case project.

I have been planning to make wooden case for years.. But maybe it will change from now

ATM ideas are quite open, i will post few designs as soon i make them, first i will draw and then i make it in Sketchup/Solidworks.

But what im trying to make is something simplistic, with no fan holes etc showing..

And i will use mATX board in it.

2x360 or 2x240 loop will be in this case with atleast 4 HDD places.

Shape of it might be Cube, or just tall tower or between cube and tall tower



What to buy:


Radiators
Tubing
Scythe GT:s
Wood
Screws
CPU Block
Sleeving

I already have, MCP655 pump and GTX 280 block.

i have made 3 wooden cases, and working on my fourth-Case Mod: Not a HTPC?.
it has been on hold, due to a busy work load, but i plan on getting back to it next weekend. (i just received my Rasa 750 rs 240 kit)
i am looking forward to the progress of your build.
if you have any questions feel free to ask-i am a 20+ year journeyman woodworker.

Subbed. I'm a sucker for a wood case. I've been planning one myself but me and Sketchup don't get along.
