Core W200 build begins

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Will probably never end 2 systems going in this case. First one will be the x99 from my other case with a lot of new things then my gaming system soon as I buy it lol. Oh what to buy for gaming rig already way over budget just upgrading water cooling components for the work station/media server



Had some time to work on the build Sharing some pics of the mock up and how the build is coming along.






Don't like the motherboard tray/wall Thermaltake made there's so many holes and cut outs it looked like Swiss cheese




Figured I'd practice taping some g1/4 holes. Used some cheap extruded acrylic didn't even bother putting it on the drill press or clamping it down. Came out fine should be good to go on the poly-carbonate and cast acrylic I hope!

If you ever want to tap plastic by hand just make sure to go very slow and make sure to set torque on the drill to like 3 you can actually feel when the bit is going to get caught up and snap the acrylic.










As soon as I figure what hardware to buy for my gaming rig the x99 and 980ti will swap over to here and either sli or tri sli will be on the other side.
More to come can't wait to plan out the loops

Sweet! When I saw the first pic with the MB and Reservoirs installed I thought the MB was an ITX! The case and the res tubes dwarf it. Very cool. I will be monitoring this thread

This is what I've done so far been up and running for around 5 months. Going to replace the 980ti with a Titan XP maybe 2 of them in the next couple of weeks. Also going to install some flow meters. Then when Skylake X is available I"ll add another system to the other side of the case.

Just wondering, considering you don't seem to be on a very tight budget. Why didn't you go for the real deal?

I assume you're talking about the caselabs real deal. I really didn't even consider caselabs because I'm modding it anyways and I would have hated to cut up a caselabs case. especially the awesome motherboard tray in those cases. I'm not done cutting and drilling away at this Knockoff lol. Can you install 2 systems in a stock magnum double wide?

Fair enough, a modding mishap on a caselabs would indeed be more of a bummer.

You used to be able to do a dual system in the Magnum TX10-D but it has been discontinued unfortunately. Although i'm pretty sure there are still enough replacement parts to be able to order an entire case. tongue.gif

Anyway, nice tubing runs, interested to see what else you'll do whit the case. thumb.gif
