[Project]Velocity Case Mod

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Check out the full thread on Project Velocity

First Update: Case Modding


Okay, I have submitted my proposal for my GP. I have gotten two other friends to build a computer. One of those friends will be building a similar computer to mine. We will be working together on the case modding together because I have the machine shop in my basement. Half of the project will be case modding. I have been looking into some cases and how water cooling will work with it.

This case is the case of choice for my project. First
, the HDD cages will be stripped out to make room for the Liquid cooling pump. Second, the Reservoir will be mounted above the power supply on the middle divider.


__________________________________________________ _____________
Along with the case will be a side panel that contains a window with the GPU vent.

Along with the purchase of this case will be a 4x 120mm fan shroud. Later on will be the purchase of a 4x 120mm radiator.

Are you planning on using that Koolance radiator? If so, I'd strongly suggest you reconsider since AFAIK all koolance rads are made from aluminum, which results in galvanic corrosion when other metals (copper/brass) are in the same loop; since the block bases are predominantly copper, it's best to stick with a copper or brass radiator and make sure that the none of the block tops contain aluminum.

truth. you *may* be able to fit the koolance cover on a *decent* rad, but dont go more koolance than that.

Other options for the rad would be to either a) build your own RAD housing that's similar in design to the Koolance but sized to fit a good radiator or possibly b) install the radiator in the top of the case venting out of the roof and covered with a RADgrillz (made by A.C. Ryan) or similar grill.

Edit: I think I will just order the case and some accesories. I am going to wait to get the case then see if I can get a 4 fan Rad instead of a 3 fan.

Instead of buying the radiator kit, I will just build one with a better radiator.

OK, I have everything set for ordering, now I just have to order it. I will be making the purchase some time this week. A few fans will be ordered with this case.
