Finally my next build
smile.gif

This time not a scratch build, but a "normal" casemod.

Before i came in touch with the world of modding and watercooling i played a lot with HTPC's
Back then i fell in love with all the cases of Origen AE.
Every time i was on their site, i just had to watch the topmodel.
I knew it was just too expensive for me, also personally i think the 12" touchscreen is useless for an htpc.
But still ... it looks so nice....

Because i won some prizes with "L3p D3sk" in the Coolermaster compo,
and because it was time to prepare my next build i took the step to go for the Origen S21T.
Also because i wanted to build something that is more easy to take to lans then my previous build ^^
Off course this all wouldn't have been possible without the help of Freddy from Highflow.nl
I have also chosen this case because i didn't see it being modded much yet.

So it won't become an Htpc but a real watercooled gamer pc

I want to use the grey plexi for the top window.
The other plexi is just for playing with it and to find out about different colors.

P1070316%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Again, thanks Freddy !

P1070317%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Bought these from colleague Kier aka Richard 2 x 1 Meter RGB led with controller
Wonderful stuff for modders, also if you want to find out what colours would be best

P1070343%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

The idea was to make a complete red theme, but im in doubt now.

P1070344%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070345%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

To be one step ahead

P1070346%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Tested it before i disassemble it.
It works
smile.gif


P1070347%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Pretty compact.

P1070348%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070349%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Couldn't get the tubes off without cutting them.

P1070350%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Getting the top on it.

P1070351%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070364%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070373%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

First of all .. my own site and so the L3p d3sk pictures are back online
smile.gif

Thanks for all the help Bo and tweakers.net crew !

And received some material !
I'm very happy with it, no i can also measure some more.
You can´t see it very well on photo´s but it´s very narrow all inside.
The Gpu´s are 29.5cm

P1070378%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070389%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Didn't have a mouse yet for this build so ordered this one from the asus shop.
Think it'll look good next to it

P1070488%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Going to use the EK Top/Res instead of the Koolance top, this cause of the limited space i have.
The Koolance heatsink will remain.

Thanks Gregor and EKWB !

Used the hardware from the CM compo to fit some more in.
As you can see, not much space.

Small update.

Got some good news from Asus.
Just 2 weeks before the hardware will arrive !
Can't wait
tongue.gif


I've been talking a lot to Kier lately.
We also exchange a lot of hardware and WC products.
Also we ordered @ MDPC-x together, told him i didn't have much time the coming 3 weeks. So he said, send me the PSU with the rest, i'm bored. (Before he started his TJ11 project)

So ... Made by Kier
smile.gif


P1070569%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070570%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

One week later this was on my table

P1070575%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070577%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Also extra sleeve for the sata cables and some mounting stuff, the rest will follow.

P1070578%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Richard .. thanks a lot my friend, no one who can do this faster and better
smile.gif


And the second order @ Highflow.

P1070583%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

For the Koolance controller. 2 x Koolance temp sensor and 1 x Koolance flowsensor

P1070584%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070588%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Hope it'll go to 5Ghz
smile.gif


P1070586%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

For in the bottom of the case. 92mm brushed aluminium fans.

P1070589%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070590%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

highflow.png

And tape, lots of tape to protect the case later on.

P1070591%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Because i only know since a few weeks i have to cool down 2 Matrix cards i ordered fans with 1500 rpm now, think 800 rpm won't be enough.
Luckily i could change the red blades without a problem.

P1070594%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070600%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Rear fan replaced, also a black fanguard, screws will come later.

P1070606%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Lets change the PSU too.

P1070608%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Had to change the wiring, the leds didnt work on the low voltage the psu gave to the fan.

P1070611%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

So a seperate 12V for the leds now.

P1070614%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

All red and 1500 rpm now (max)

P1070615%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Even now still in doubt if i will do the fans on the outside and rads inside or rads outside and fans inside.
Casewindows in the top will be tinted so all the light is no problem.

P1070617%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

For future purposes the leds are changeable with one push on the button
smile.gif


P1070618%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070621%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

So again, thanks Freddy for the nice discount !

My vacation has started and didn't do anything on the case yet
smile.gif

I did practise some.

From the start i had the idea to make the fan/rad guard just like the S21T's little brother.

P1070701%20%5B550x%5D.JPG


I'm already walking with that idea for 2 weeks now how to do that.
The case is 5mm thick, brushed and black anodized aluminium.
So i guess i can't restore the smallest scratch.
Today i just tried to make such a fan hole in a piece of 6mm thick aluminium.

First had to do some shopping again. (The dremel virus even got me before i started working with it)

P1070702%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

piece of 6mm thick garbage measured out.

P1070703%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Still no idea how or what, but i've got to do it with these tools.

P1070704%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Forget about a dremel in 6mm alu
tongue.gif
so lets prepare for the jigsaw.

P1070705%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Only had a bad quality metalsaw, the woodsaw worked better :/

P1070706%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

P1070707%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

After sawing, the dremel works out fine.

P1070708%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Grinding the edges from the Bitspower radguard. (Starting to love the dremel
smile.gif
)

P1070709%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Bending the edges a little more.

P1070712%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Tapped the radguard in it's place, in the case itself i will use kit / black glue to hold it in it's place even better.

P1070718%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

Painted it black for the picture.
In this picture the guard needed a few more taps.

P1070714%20%5B550x%5D.JPG

And this is how i want it .... X 3
smile.gif

Next time further on with how i will fasten the rads/fans.

P1070721%20%5B550x%5D.JPG
