[Sponsored] Sesto Elemento (Bubble cooled)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 



Hello, Everyone and welcome to my project logs for ''Sesto Elemento''

What is Sesto Elemento ?
Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) is based on the Lamboghini Sesto Elemento.
The engine cover is my main focus, after i seen that, i knew i had to incorporate it into a build.

What's the plan ?
The plan is to successfully create a watercooled system, that doesn't require any radiators.
how ?
The whole front of the case will be one large custom reservoir with multiple holes for air to travel through.
Also 1 or 2 air pumps pumping cold bubbles into the base of the reservoir attempting to keep the coolant cool.
The case i'll be using will be stripped down, to just the frame and glass window.
All panels will be custom made, custom legs, custom grills etc etc.
PSU Shroud will also have water channels and the system will be a duel loop sharing the same large res.

Spec list

Intel core i7 7700K (De-Lidded)
Gigabyte Aorus Z270X Gaming 9 motherboard
16GB HyperX Fury RAM
Full alphacool watercooling (List to come)
be quiet! Dark base pro 900
be quiet! Dark power pro 11 - 850w
be quiet! Silent wing 3 fans (140mm PWM)

Will update this list as more parts are confirmed.

Special thanks for the support
AORUS & Gigabyte UK
be quiet!
Alphacool

Design idea



Check back for work has already started and i'll start uploading updates shortly.
Please note:
This project will take some time, and these logs will be picture heavy.

Acrylics arrived today, so i can begin work on the panels and front reservoir!
Be slow progress, as i still have to do all the mapping with the software before i actually do the cuts.








Check back later for updates

Little update today
Top panel has been cut and I've fitted the legs to allow air to escape.
The orange is frosted,m while will glow when the LED's are on, inside the case.

Will angle cut the edges and bolt the top to the frame.



I bolted the top panel to the frame, and used screw (black) covers, to keep things sleek.


I also had a quick test with the lights, made sure it glowed right.


I'll now drill some holes behind the Aorus logo, and put in a couple of 2.5mm white LEDS.
That should complete the top panel. smile.gif

So we started work on the Reservoir today.
It's going to take 8 hours to cut. *Crys*
35mm thick, lazer at 50% power and speed at 0.5.

We don't wanna go too fast, or use too much power as it could melt the acrylic back together after cut, Nice and easy does it.

Reservoir update!

I had to completely re-design the reservoir due to sizes and limitations on the inlet and outlet ports.
So first of all i plotted the design on the computer

And got to work on the acrylics

Once they were cut, i took the covers off and placed them together.

I then bolted them together to test fit and get a peek at what it will look like when finished!
And i am in love!
