HOLD UP...! ITS TIME AGAIN!!!
Going straight in with some adjustments to the white bottom chamber. Cable management was impossible to be clear when we did the drawing for Magnus as we really had no idea what we even going into the build. In turn however this gives a really nice and easy 'hands on' way to planwhat changes we want to make.
As with all cases Magnus is fully modular. It makes making changes like these a lot less stressful. Unscrew and slide the new panel in place:
New panel in and with the addition of two new cubes (you'll see what these are for shortly) and better cable holes:
More changes and this time on the bottom black panel. By using the technical drawing on the XSPC website we managed achieve this first time:
Time to install more of these beautiful fans:
A mirror now of the top chamber connections. Connecting the two rads together with acrylic tube:
Two more new cubes. These will correspond to the two I mentioned earlier:
This little frosted guy will be doing the work between the four cubes:
Entire panel installed in the bottom of the case now:
The purpose of the frosted panel will become clear now. It basically acts much like the mid wall does in the body of the case and provides much needed extra strength. We did this as the rads are heavy even before they get filled with coolant. If you are wondering why frosted and not black. Frosted acrylic is in much less demand at work & this part of the case wont be visible:
Now you can see what the new cable management holes are for. All falling into place well:
Last for today we install the fifth
and final 240mm radiator into the system:
The clearance and fit we are very happy with. Had people mention vibration issues from the fans/rads touching panels like this but had no issues in previous builds and no sound problems upon test run:
So we did get a bit more done on the build but no more time for Photoshop today so will end it here.Love it? Hate it? Ideas? or even just want to show some love; VERY WELCOME!
