The Extreme IV v2, Custom Case

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The Extreme IV v2
I Am currently working on a school project where i have build an own computer case from scratch and the idea is to fill it with "extreme hardware".
I know that some of my hardware is not extreme but it works for me. I will upgrade the gpus someday when i can afford it.
Hardware:
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme x79
Intel i7 3930K
16gb Corsair Vengeance
HD 6870 Crossfire
Corsair AX860
Corsair Force 3 120GB
5x Scythe Slip Stream (temporary)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (temporary)

Water Cooling:

EK-Supremacy - Acetal + Nickel
EK-Reservoir Combo DCP 4.0
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)
2x EK-FC6870 - Acetal+EN Nickel
2x EK-FC6870 Backplate
EK-FC Bridge TRIPLE
EK-FC Link BLANK

Now lets see some pictures!
Special thanks to EK waterblocks who sponsor my project with water cooling, couldn't do it without you nice fellows at EK!

CAD model of how the chassis will look like without the side panels and the motherboard plate.

I use this machine to bend the plates.


Making duplicates of everything in case something goes wrong.

The rear plate will be screwed in to the motherboard plate. You can also see the front.
I choose to only have one 5.25 "for a fan controller because i dont need an optical drive.

The "basket" that will hold the fan controller in place.


The case is starting to take shape.

A picture if the welder "Sören".

Aluminum profiles will be feats to the chassis.

Another picture of the progress.

5.25 " Cover.

Another picture of the crazy Sören biggrin.gif

The top is welded to the frame. Now it's really starting to look like a case.

Here i have made the motherboard plate bigger and screwed it to the rear.

The holes where ugly so I made a new plate.

Test fitting the power supply holes too.

Here I have installed some temporary fans. I have also made an middle plate so the psu has its own "chamber".

I only use SSDs so the easiest way to mount them is to stick them to the back of the motherboard.


Rails for the magnetic fan filter.

Now I Am testing the case with some hardware. At this moment i didn't knew that EK would sponsor me, so i was planning to buy an H100i and a new gpu.



Here you can see a comparison of the v1 and v2 of the case. Notice i did a few changes, the biggest one that its smaller.

This picture is taken when i got the case parts from the painter. I was still fresh so i waited a day for it to dry.

And then i installed my hardware in it again for some more testing.


Two weeks ago my parents bought me a new power supply, big thanks to them!

Today I got the stuff from EK, big thanks to you guys over at EK!. Now Iam waiting for a fillport and an EK-DCP mounting plate KIT. When it arrives the fun part is stating!

Radiators ready for installation!


Radiators installed in the case. At this stage i dident think it was much work left. But I was wrong...

Powersupply and pump/res has found their home.

CPU block in place!

Simple to drain thw whole system with a fillport at the bottom.

Prepared for leak test! Note that only the pump got power at this stage.

After a rather long break due to personal reasons, computer interest has been kept low, but now they're back and I'm ready to upgrade. Currently i dont have water blocks on the graphics card / graphics cards because they did not fit, I would get them replaced but I have accidentally send an email to the wrong address .. Now I have plans for one or more new cards from the green team as Iam tierd of amd. Big shoutout to my sponsor EK and hope that new graphics cards coming soon.

Would be nice with new and faster memory!

It will need to be moved to the Sponsored section but you need to pay for that ($29 per thread if I remember right). Please PM The_Manual or Chipp for more details, including where to send the payment and the specific fee as that may have changed. If you're unwilling to pay the thread will have to be deleted. It will be left open until then, though, and obviously will remain open if paid for and moved (PM me when/if it's paid for so I know to move it). smile.gif
