Welcome to the build log and welcome to OCN!



The "Test Fit" order




This is the test fit order. I ordered just one Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 560mm and one Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 280mm. With these two radiators I can fit the 280mm in the front on each side, then put the 560mm in the bottom, and then in the top so I can verify they will fit, before I order three more 560s and one more 280. From my measurements, they should fit.

Also ordered:
(UN)Designs Pump Z3-Bracket for D5 & 140mm Fans - Black x 2

Bitspower BP-2D5TOPAC-BK Dual D5 Mod Top Acrylic Version - this part was unavailable for a long time

Bitspower 2D5TOP D5 Pump Bracket

Aquacomputer Passive Heatsink for Aquaero 6 - Black

Aquacomputer Mounting Plate for Poweradjust 2 USB - Black Anodized Aluminium

Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentFan XM1 40mmx10mm Ultra Quiet Fan - 2800 RPM - 11 dBA

Very nice. Wanted to build this case before I decided to just update my s8 with a pedestal. I was always nervous for any type of custom work such as the distribution plate or res I had made. I can think of endless cool things to do with this case. Jim at clockwerks really does cool custom work and is super easy to work with if u ever thought of doing something custom but thought it's not possible. That's how I get till I finally just reached out to Jim.
The SMA8 build monochrome is what got me really jiving to do some custom stuff if you haven't seen it look it up. I can really see something similar in ur case in front of the mobo tray ?
Just talking out loud.

Is that case primered? What color are you going to paint it if so?

Mad plan. Completely mad.

Mammoth case, huge cooling power, top-whack hardware list...I look forward to it immensely!

Not sure I can be seduced away from my case of the hots for the Mercury S8; but you may do just that Sir. Your parts selection is all that. I subbed understanding this was a long-term project.

With that clearly acknowledged more and faster please I beg of thee. (Sort of reads like the unintentional culmination of a dubious dating scenario doesn't it? jerry.gif) Ah well when properly viewed everything is lewd. biggrin.gif

The Aquaero is a product line I have shied away from; just not sure I have the skills. If / when you can spare the time I'd value your thoughts on your choice to use this specific product line.

Cheers,

Mad Monk

Oh I have been watching your "water plate" you have going, looks incredible! I will check out clockwerks.

The entire case is "Gunmetal". It does look like primer in the outside shots, it was a very bright morning. The outer panels will be getting a custom powder coat in red thumb.gif

"Mad plan" that is exactly what I thought when I first subscribed to your build log biggrin.gif

Great to have you. I have really enjoyed following your IRONBEAST build!

Well... I got a good laugh out of your post smile.gif

The Aquaero can be a little intimidating if you aren't familiar with it, but once you get it set up how you want, it's all automatic. I'll cover more on the Aquaero and the set-up procedure later in the build.

In the mean time I would suggest subscribing to the Aquaero Owners Club

You can learn a lot just following along here with all the questions asked.

The test fit went pretty good. I will have to do some minor modding to get the radiators to fit the way I want. More on that later.


Here's the next order. A slightly damaged box. Let's see if everything is ok.



Nicely packaged as usual from Performace Pcs, so no damage done. There's some Mayhems Blitz kits on the right.



Three more Hardware Labs SR2 MP 560s, and one more Hardware Labs SR2 MP 280.



Aquaero 6 XT



Aqualis XT 880ml with Nano Coating, Fill Level Measurement and Lighting Option
This reservoir is absolutely magnificent! A picture does not do it justice once you actually have one in your hands!



Parts List from this order:

3 x Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 Multiport Black Carbon Radiator - 560mm

Hardware Labs Black Ice SR2 Multiport Black Carbon Radiator - 280mm

3 x Mayhems Blitz Part One

Mayhems Blitz Part Two

Aquacomputer Aqualis XT 880ml with Nano Coating, Fill Level Measurement and Lighting Option

Aquacomputer Mount for Aqualis Reservoir

Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 XT USB Fan Controller, Graphic LCD, Touch Control, IR Remote

2 x Aquacomputer SPLITTY9 splitter for up to 9 fans or aquabus devices

ModMyToys Button Head Cap Screw M4 x 30mm - Red - Pack of 12

36 x Bitspower G1/4" Low-Profile Stop Fitting with O-ring

Coming up next... Radiator cleaning thumb.gif
