[SPONSORED] Project Impossible

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,

First of all I would like to introduce myself, because its my first post on this forum  My name is Karol and I'm form Poland. I've been lurking this forum for a long time but never actually posted anything.
Now, as I'm prepering to my second custom LC project I thought that it's the right time  smile.gif

If you're interested, here is a link to photos of my previous project. It was simple loop without anything special as it was my first attempt to water cooling. Yet Another Red Project


You possibly wonder why this project's name is Project Impossible. Well, as a person with pretty small experience with watercooling and, whats more, tight on budget due to studing I was dreaming about some high end show off build with awesome LC loop. However the desire to make this project was so enormous that I decided to try get a sponsor for some parts, which will allow me to start.

I didn't believe that this could work out well. I thought it was impossible... However...

I would like to thank very much aquatuning.de and especially Matthias for trusting me, you're awesome! thumb.gif So here announce that aquatuning agreed to sponsor all of watercooling parts for this build! 


Here is a list of hardware which will go into this build:

- i5 6600K
- Asus Maximus Ranger VIII
- 4x4GB DDR4 (don't know which one yet)
- GTX1070 FE
- Crucial MX100 256GB + ~500GB SSD (don't know which one yet)
- Corsair RM650 (might be changed for 650x)
- Phanteks Evolv ATX

And what all of us love the most, watercooling stuff  biggrin.gif !

- Alphacool Eisblock XPX
- Alphacool NexXxoS GPX m01 for GTX1070
- Alphacool D-RAM Cooler X4
- Alphacool VPP755
- Alphacool Eisdecke D5 plexi top
- Alphacool Eisbecher Lite 250mm
- 2x Alphacool NexXxos ST30 360mm
- Alphacool Eiszapfen fittings
- Phobya eLoop black 1000rpm
- Alphacool Eisrohr 16mm PMMA satin

Let me know focus on a case, because it needs to be modded. 
Airflow in this case is pretty restricted so I decided to fix it  





I suppose that for some of you this pattern looks familiar and its no suprice! I took this pattern from Parvum cases, which are absolutely phenomenal but way out of a students budget  

I hope that this will make airflow a lot better. I should actually get the pricing of this mod today so I hope it won't take long to do it.

To mount two 360 mm rads in this case I need to mount top radiator directly to the top of a case frame, without Phanteks slide bracket (which by the way is nice, but useless in this case scenario). To do that I will make my own bracket, which you'll see later  This is another reason to improve airflow in a case, cause mounting rad this way would leave only 2 cm space between case top panel and radiator. This would definitelly affect temperatures.

I will also make new basement cover, possibly with led ROG logo. On a window side of this cover I'm planning to integrate aquaero 6. 

Since I've first saw it I loved the look af frosted acrylic, so I decided to go with Alphacool sating tubing 


Two days ago I recieve packages from Matthias! 



And here is picture what I found inside biggrin.gif




More pics coming, but I'm waiting for few items which will make photos much better wink.gif

Nice looking build! Could I ask about the cost and sourcing of the top and front panel mods? I'm curious about doing something similar myself.

Thanks, for now I didn't show anything special tongue.gif I'm wating for case to be ready, then I could really start to work.

It will be difficult to estimate price for You, because I assume that it will differ depending on country. I'm from Poland and here for cutting this pattern in two panels with waterjet I paid 150PLN, which for now is about 35$ smile.gif God, our currency is ****ty biggrin.gif

I suppose You have to look for a waterjet in your location and talk with them. It's good to have project ready IMO smile.gif
