Hi, all.

I recently joined OCN, and wanted to share my last scratch build with OCN.

Unfortunately, I wasn't keeping records of build process for the project..
For my upcoming project, I will make sure that I keep records of build process and post them here.

The goal of project was building a small system with performance for gaming.
That's why I named it as "Magnum." Small but powerful!

It's heavy though.

Though it came out to be bigger than expected, I am pretty satisfied with its size and performance level.
(Final Size W x D x H - 300mm x 400mm x 270mm)

This is my first post on OCN.
If this post is not proper for this forum.. someone please let me know.

Thanks Pancake! I had to use a little trick to set all water tubing in straight line. First I tried to use copper pipe, but it was too difficult. heh

Yes... The way people post articles here is totally different from what I am used with. Guess it will take some time to learn.

It's a small water tank that is made to change direction of tubing. Without it, it was impossible to connect tubes in straight line.

It looks smaller than you say, unless that's a monster LCD.
Thanks! The monitor is 27 inches. Maybe that's why it looks smaller that what it is.

Builds like that are the very reason I can't wait to buy or build a CNC Router.
Hi, Re-Evolution. Thanks for compliment! Yes... CNC machine does help a lot when you want to produce parts of your own. I love it!

ya that case and the hydro thing is really cool. Amazing build. I don't know what the requirements are but this should definitely be a candidate for mod of the month.

Hi ArchLinux. Errr.. The structure of case is specifically designed for the hardware I use. Unless you use all identical hardware I used, the drawings won't help your project much.. Hope you understand!

Thanks Strong Island. I am still learning how to blend into OCN. Maybe I will try for it with my next project. Thank you!

However I can still take some of the measurements you used, such as for fan cutouts, power supply screw hole spacing, etc. I currently have most of my CAD work done, but it helps save some time if you can use what other people used

Aight. I've sent some parts drawing that might be helpful. Check your PM.
