  1. Thank you so much, Mike. Honestly, many mods I’ve seen in his contest would deserve to win...but I really appreciate your comment: it was really hard to make all this systems work together. Even if my mod would not win the contest, maybe I would still earn some money from selling the wonderful and infinitely collection of Arduino boards and linear actuators tested before finding the right ones for this project .

    This is just the best ever mod... simply an artwork.
  3. Youtube video has an issue with 4K and logo, so I decided to share Vimeo file instead.
  4. Benchmark tests: Prime95 for cpu and 3DMark at 5120x2160 resolution for gpus.
  5. Project Aquarium completed and submitted for #CMWS19FINALS. Crossed fingers for my build Cheers
  6. Project Aquarium is finally finished. It took so many months learning how to apply robotics to this case and to an already complete water cooling system. From first day I received the C700M, I refused to remove its beautiful front door to get few important degrees down on an extremely overclocked machine (CPU running around 5 GHz, 2x 2080TI GPU and a 5K2K monitor). SYSTEM SPECIFICATIONS: LG 5K2K hdr monitor Cooler Master C700m I9-9900K CPU GigaByte Aorus Z390 Xtreme Waterforce Samsung SSD NVMe M.2 1TB drives Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB ram Razer Huntsman keyboard Razer Naga Trinity mouse Gigabyte Aorus RTX 2080TI Xtreme Waterforce GPUs Aquacomputer Aquaero 6XT Aquacomputer D5 Next pumps Aquacomputer Aqualis reservoirs Aquacomputer Flow sensors Aquacomputer Farbwerk led controllers Aquacomputer Farbwerk 360 Aquacomputer RGBpx strips CableMod Hybrid strips EK Vardar Evo 120ER rgb fans Irrobot MightyZap linear servos Crumbuino 2560 controllers MODDING OPERATIONS MADE: 1) Complete water cooling system, from motherboard to ram and gpus using Aquacomputer components (reservoirs, pumps, Aquaero, Quadro, hubs, Farbwerk, Farbwerk 360, flow sensors, temperature sensors), XSPC connectors and EK radiators. 2) Development of a motor controller unit capable of reading values from temperature sensors (hot water in loop and ambient temperature), evaluating the difference from this delta temperature from above and the delta temperature programmed in Arduino sketch. Based on that and based on the pwm signal sent by Aquacomputer electronics to the fans, motor controller units send instruction via RS485 bus to MightyZap motors for opening front and top panels of the C700M (panels are exponentially opened or closed based on increasing / decreasing of those values). Motors send a feedback to Motor Control Unit: if any issue (obstacle blocking the movement, motor not working) a missing rpm signal is sent to Aquacomputer Quadro, which generates an alarm to the motherboard and eventually turn off the computer. 3) Modification of top cover (cutting of the aluminum mesh panel) with new fume plexiglass doors and aluminum hinges. 4) Modification in front panel (cutting of the aluminum cover to install lcd screen and placement of hinges). 5) LCD installed on front cover for reading system parameters (temperature, usage etc in form of histograms or gauges etc) even when pc is in full screen and so not allowing to read those values from software. 6) Lighting setup with hybrid UV/RGB strips installed on custom 45 degrees plates to get direct lights to the pc internal components. EK Vardar rgb fans with color changing based on delta temperature read by Aquaero Quadro fan controller. 7) Custom led panel lighting a CMWS logo 8)Right aluminum panel removed and installed original double tempered glass panel from Cooler Master C700M on both sides. Here are final pics: And here’s the video:
  7. LAST WORKLOG 09/10/2019 Installed led stripes on new frame, and also installed a brand new farbwerk 360. I made a stencil of Case Mod logo and applied on plexiglass, behind that 6x rgbpx stripes. Configured front panel lcd, and tomorrow (finally) I will make final pics and video.
  8. WORKLOG 07/08/2019 I didn’t like at all the doors with teeth...went for new ones straight...made of thick plexiglass fume (same used for fans cover). Made a loop test looking for any leak, everything seems to be ok. Tomorrow (in few hours I mean) I will install all led stripes, covers...clean it and get it ready for final pics and video...
  9. WORKLOG 04/10/2019 Received new top mesh cover, new mod version (frame for opening doors is now more slim, without holes in the inner border). Also prepared 2x front door covers for cut: they will become doors connected to top motors, automatically opening and closing % based on water loop delta temperature and / or cpu loop fans speed.
  10. WORKLOG 02/09/2019 Replaced front panel fan grill with a custom made fan panel:
  11. WORKLOG 01/09/2019 Installed lcd screen, controller and data cable on front door. .
  12. WORKLOG 30/09/2019 I made cables for touch buttons for opening front and top doors, and that will be connected to the motor control units. Second step: front door drilling for the SPI2USB interface, board responsible for driving the Matrix Orbital lcd display (for showing system info). Third and most complicated step: cutting the front door for lcd placement...
  13. WORKLOG 29/09/2019 I made some changes to the loops, allowing more space available for led frames (left and bottom).
  14. WORKLOG 27/09/2019 Cablemod led strips are great with their magnets, but I'd like to get a better light orientation...for example a 45 degrees, especially for the UV light to better "illuminate" the uv coolant flowing inside loop. So I got up with an idea: making a frame with a 45 degrees orientation for strips, and meantime using same fume Plexiglas for a better filters placement.
  15. WORKLOG 26/09/2019 continues Front panel and front door installed
