Building custom external WC loop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, here is a teaser of the basic idea of what im building. using plexiglass for the body. parts are: mcp655, xspc 360, 3x gentle typhoons, ek supreme, nzxt touch screen fan controller, ek 150 res.

basically what im doing is taking two large plexi glass panels, cutting em as case sides, and mounting all this hardware. itll sit next to my tower and im going to create a custom plexi side panel for my lian li pc 60 so you can see the tubing enter the side case.

anyone work with acrylic doing custom case stuff have any advice?

also, what do you guys think of the flow arrangement i have?

i hope my drawings are clear enough, if you have any questions i can clarify them.
basically im just eager to see what people think because ive searched and searched for external WC build logs and havent come up with a ton of info.

im going to begin an extensive worklog as soon as the materials arrive. im still picking what materials and from who.

Really good idea, cant wait to see how it turns out and acrylic is sooo easy to crack be carefull with it and make sure you flow rates wont be to low new waterblocks are pretty restrictive and plus it will take a long time for the water to get to the cpu waterblock and back to the pump you might wanna consider getting another pump if your temps get high but since its going to be right next to your case i think it will be fine. + repp for the motivation
