Oh thank you for the input! I'm in the same situation. My PC only turns off when I fidget with the internals or when I do transplants or whatever. It also stays in my room.

I'll take that into consideration for when I have to decide on the fans and lights. As you can tell, I'm delaying that part for as long as I can.

Addendum:
Oh and yes! It is getting very very squished inside. I'm fighting for every square centimeter to make sure there's a clear view to the motherboard, waterblocks, fittings and tubing.

I'm trying my best to tame the cables.

I don't want to give up on making it the neatest possible

The original plans had the reservoir mounted inside the case and the fill cap somehow poking out of the top of the case. But that plan got shot when I switched GPUs to the much longer Reference HD 6950.

Now I have no choice but to keep the reservoir [and possibly the pump] outside of the case.

IRL Work has me tied up in knots!

Not being able to sleep tonight, I decided to throw up a few pictures of what's been going on. While my modding has slowed down, it hasn't stopped at all.

After weeks of fiddling around with the internals of the case, I've finally decided on the reservoir location. Given the size of the case, while smaller than most other cases, should be enough to justify that everything [res and pump] are internal. I'm not trying to cram things into a Silverstone SG05 type of case.

With that being said, I decided that the only reasonable placement for the pump and reservoir would be between the waterblocks and the radiator. This means they're taking on heated liquids before the liquids gets cooled down by the radiator. It's a sad thing, but I'm ok with that decision especially with an unexpected surprise that showed up.

Here's a shot of the internals. Please forgive the usage of a phone camera. My brother has not returned from the beach and I must make do with what I have. A male-to-male connector is holding the reservoir in place.



i removed the acrylic midplate to work more on the holes at the side for cable and tube routing. Also, the Bitspower Multi-Z 150 reservoir was in the way. It seems to make this build work, I will have to get a shorter reservoir. But I wanted to check how everything would fit together. And by assembling it with what I have, I can better catalogue what other fittings I may need to bring it to that stage where it's really neat and clean. It's an absolute mess right now.



I completed the temporary assembly with a spare Enermax Apolish 120mm RED fan. That is not the final fan i'll be running with. Hmmm... The inside of the res is covered with bubbles. Maybe that'll clear up over time.



Wait a minute... the water is exiting the GPU block and the metal tube is sucking the water into the pump... There's a lot of bubble action going on due to that very tiny pocket of air at the top.



Bubbles! Bubbles! Bubbles! There are bubbles sticking to the walls of the reservoir and bubbles being forced down into the water due to the flow rate of the pump.



I turned off the rest of the lights in my room to take this shot.



So pump and reservoir are mounted inside the case, but not at the best placement inside a water cooling loop. I'm ok with it since I won't be running with super heated liquids. It's not a rig for overclocking.

I have started cutting up the side-panels [pictures over the weekend] and plotting out the rest of the acrylic pieces for the top and side window.
While I was originally torn between using blue or white LED fans, it seems that I have no problems sleeping with red LEDs being on! This has made my choice of what color to go with even worse than before! The blue or white LEDs go well with the Oceanus name!

That's it for now! Hope you all have a great weekend!

P.S. : hand is healing well! I get to keep all my fingers!

The new year celebrations are over in my country and I've got a major hangover to work through. BUT I am glad that the time-off was used well in finishing this project.

Let's get to the meat of it and wrap up this story!

We begin with the radiator. a sandwiched XSPC RS240 with 2x2 120mm Everflow fans. The fans are running through a 7v connector which cuts down on their speed and noise.
408179_10150449656626793_539351792_8983690_1889606582_n.jpg

With the mid-plate installed as well as a Koolance pass-through fitting, it all looks pretty clean.
381189_10150449656791793_539351792_8983692_1423646686_n.jpg

Here's a close up of that interesting part. The top compression fitting is by Bitspower and the bottom one is made by XSPC. When working with a strict budget, it's better to just go with the bargains. And these fittings were pretty cheap to get [albeit not as many as I'd like]
396836_10150449657121793_539351792_8983697_61809347_n.jpg

radiator + fans + mid-plate installed into the case which already has the mobo + videocard + psu
409016_10150449657476793_539351792_8983699_1029141395_n.jpg

One of the last obstacles in this build... a worthy opponent! The cables need to be tidied up! Running down the side are the 2 6pin connectors for the videocard, the 24pin motherboard connector, the front headers, and some proxy cables for the 2nd phase of this project build.
396747_10150449657891793_539351792_8983702_491181217_n.jpg

Since this case does not have a lot of space behind it for cable management, I had to come up with another way to hide the cables. I crafted an "L" plate out of acrylic and covered it with carbon fiber sticker. Held in place with 3 stainless steel signboard stand offs that were on sale! Now it's nice and clean!
396186_10150449658241793_539351792_8983704_1141584211_n.jpg

near the top of the mobo... Just below the videocard. I like how the 24 pin motherboard power connector twists just as it disappears behind the "L" plate!
378744_10150449658436793_539351792_8983705_1670862907_n.jpg

Just below the "L" plate, I have enough space to view the cables snaking. I can probably hide that entirely, but I do take some comfort in seeing some of the cables.
400107_10150449658571793_539351792_8983706_1404133236_n.jpg

The "L" plate's bottom terminates just above the ports of the HDD. This allows me to plug in the important cables of the HDD... and it looks neater this way.
395288_10150449658741793_539351792_8983708_373509038_n.jpg

The Swiftech MCP355 pump died a few weeks ago and this was only replacement I could get. the Laing D5 comes with a speed controller at the bottom. Also since it was on sale, I was able to snag an EK Top to make it look good. a T-connector fitting was installed on top so that I can fill the loop through a fill port.
406039_10150449658891793_539351792_8983709_402121297_n.jpg

I have to redo the cable sleeving on the D5 Pump when time permits. But for now that cables snakes down the back of the case and it disappears after the midplate... NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN! BWAHAHAHAHA! ahem... sorry about that.
384629_10150449659131793_539351792_8983711_455612046_n.jpg

Here's a view through the rear fan grill. It's the only way to see the white XSPC Silicone tube sliding up from the mid-plate to the top of the Pump T-connector.
408173_10150449659371793_539351792_8983714_1223140707_n.jpg

Here's the Top fillport. I drilled a 5/8" hole and installed the 2nd Koolance pass through fittings.
378655_10150449659551793_539351792_8983715_1523478135_n.jpg

The stop fitting matches the 2 others on the GPU block.
393459_10150449659641793_539351792_8983716_1476565294_n.jpg

developed serious finger cramps fitting all of the tubes in tight spaces! but it was all worth it. The long white tube facilitates the dump of the heated water from the GPU waterblock and into the radiator through the mid-plate
383717_10150449660291793_539351792_8983722_1756595804_n.jpg

White tissues ties around the fittings... Oceanus is now undergoing 24 hour leak testing.
373846_10150449660426793_539351792_8983724_1261132635_n.jpg

Bonus picture!
399385_10150449660586793_539351792_8983725_1159623840_n.jpg
With a scrap piece of clear acrylic and some carbonfiber sticker, I was able to make a side panel for the midplate which makes it look very very neat and clean

With Oceanus completed, I am waiting for a friend who wants to practice his photography skills. He'll be taking the photos for the epilogue of this build ^^

Thank you for viewing this thread and I hope you all have a GREAT 2012! biggrin.gif

Congratulations on the build it looks fantastic and a lot of hard work has gone into it.

I think we all secretly want to defy convention and build a tiny and compact water cooled system crammed with as much power as possible (I know I do), and you've done that here with style.

Can't wait to see the jazzed up final images.

Good Job!

Thank you so much for the kind words, Chobbit! It was definitely a big challenge for me as well as a great learning experience.

As for the build, someone in my household developed chickenpox which meant that my photographer friend can't drop by anytime soon. [He's a bit of a hypochondriac].

In the interim, I was also able to flip the radiator so that the ports are pointing upwards instead of downwards. This freed up a lot of angle fittings [3 x 90 degrees and 1 x 45 degrees] for the other thing i wanted to modify.

Apart from that, I was able to find a way to squeeze all the 170mm length of the Bitspower Multi-Z !50 reservoir inside! It required that i move the pump a bit inwards. The new position of the pump and reservoir used up all the remaining angle fittings.

Reasons why I did this.
1. Just using a T-line, I was frightful about the pump working at all! Even at setting 5, the Laing D5 [Swiftech MCP 655] was very very quiet when all the air bubbles were flushed out. Sometimes I found myself reaching across just to feel the pump vibrate to get any confirmation of it working at all!

2. I've read that the Laing D5 didn't perform as well as the DDC [aka Swiftech MCP 355] when it comes to head pressure and this is desirable for very restrictive systems. I'm not sure if my system is that restrictive, but when i read about people recommending the the MCP 355 for bigger systems that ran a CPU, GPU, reservoir and 2x Radiator instead of the MCP 655, I was worried. The water activity in a reservoir that was integrated into a loop would help me confirm if the MCP 655 was pushing enough water through my:
RAM > Chipet > CPU > GPU > Radiator setup.

As it stands, I am happy with the water flow through the system. I just need to complete the new Mid plate due to the flipped radiator and a couple more bling bling mods. Phase 1 should properly be completed when my household is cleared of the pox. ^_^

Right, so this build is hurtling towards its conclusion. For January, while waiting out the quarantine in my house [Chicken Pox >_>] I did some work on the PC. Mainly I wanted to experiment with flipping the radiator over and trying to find a way to install the reservoir.

Having the radiator holes pointed up cuts down on the amount of angle fittings. BUT it would also mean that I render my existing midplate useless. I had to accept the fact that a new midplate would have to be made.

The T-line is great and all, but for lack of a flow meter, I end up paranoid about the watercooling setup. I keep asking myself "is the pump running? did my pump die? oh noes! is my system overheating?!" I've learned that reservoirs are not only great for holding water [which they should] but as part of the loop, they're great flow meters as well.

I used my trusty tape measure and rulers and did a lot of calculations on my head. All of that thinking led to the same conclusion, the reservoir would fit [or not fit] by the smallest of margins.

NZXT Sentry Mix.

Lots of Purdy Sliders!
423124_10150514794201793_539351792_9207599_875767675_n.jpg

I like how it looks with the front panel!
419415_10150514795456793_539351792_9207606_474179813_n.jpg

Redid the acrylic plate that hides most of the cabling. I also flipped the radiator so that the holes were pointed upwards.
428358_10150514795881793_539351792_9207607_513287452_n.jpg

Made the acrylic sheet "L" shaped so that I can mount the pump on it. I was basically eyeballing a lot of measurements. Formerly, the pump was towards the opening of the case. This way it's as far back as possible.
425579_10150514797166793_539351792_9207610_315801521_n.jpg

As you can see the rear end of the GPU is covers the Laing D5 completely. This is important because... I'm not satisfied with just a T-line for providing water.
421343_10150514797641793_539351792_9207611_312796980_n.jpg
Here's the T-line as it was in the previous post. I would eventually replace this with a 90 degree angle fitting. I like how the braided cables part to accommodate the fittings on top of the pump.
420513_10150514797996793_539351792_9207612_1740196439_n.jpg

Yes! I've managed to fit the Bitspower Multi-Z 150 Reservoir into the build! all 170mms of total length + 30mm of angle fittings underneath + 15mm of fittings on top to accommodate a fillport!
420007_10150514799026793_539351792_9207619_453534256_n.jpg

Only 1-2mms of clearance between the fan grill [Radiator] and the 90 degree angle fittings [Reservoir]. That was close!!!!
422822_10150514801436793_539351792_9207627_1528542487_n.jpg

This area is very very busy to the eye. Tubings going into the radiator, reservoir, in-and-out of the Koolance RAM33 modules.
419546_10150514801181793_539351792_9207626_1453817579_n.jpg

At the back of the case you can see that I used some scrap acrylic to make another midplate. I'm not giving up on that idea! By flipping the radiator over, I've had to put away the previous midplate.
425906_10150514801681793_539351792_9207628_702093696_n.jpg

How Oceanus looks with the temporary midplate... im liking everything else but that midplate. -.-
423151_10150514802111793_539351792_9207630_1817855719_n.jpg

Currently,
1. I've flipped the radiator back to before [holes facing down] and bought a few more 90 degree angle fittings.
2. I've thrown out the new midplate and put in the old one.
3. The reservoir fit too perfectly that I'm still stunned at how close the measurements were.
4. Everything is pieced together and completed a 24 hour leak test. Side panels were mounted as well.
5. Added a DVD RW to the drivebays and an extra hard drive [on brackets]

It all looks pretty neat except for the leatherette finish peeling at certain places. I've decided to leave the faulty finish as is. I'll add it to the list of things to do for phase 2.

Phase 1 is now totally complete and awaiting my photographer friend.

Thank you for the patience and your time! hoping everyone has a great weekend!

I decided not to wait for my photographer friend anymore. Throwing up some photos of the completed rig. My fingers are soooo cramped from cramming everything inside and all those compression fittings.

Phase 2 will have a lot to do with correcting mistakes and cleaning up some more.

That's it. This build is done until i have the time to do Phase 2. Thank you so much for the privilege of sharing my build log here!

Nice work.

One thing though, dude.

You might want to cover the bearing holes in the fans with some black tape maybe.

It's not good to expose those and let dirt get it. It'll jam the fans up.

Oh Cripes! I didn't see that! I'll do that while working on the Phase 2 progress! Thank you so much for that warning!
