Dude .. amazing design :)

 

Thank you !! Looking forward to show you some progress these days. New Stuff vom CM , Noctua and of course the acrylic parts are kinda done.

 

This is awesome! Can't wait to see the finished build! The Orange/Green/White theme is coming out really well! 

 

I havent seen this combination that often. So i wanted to give it a try ...

 

verry nice build! Do you cut the acrylic yourself with home made cnc/ laser? Grtzz 

 

Hey,

 

Unfortunately, i dont own a cnc/laser but a friend of mine does. Ive got a small carpentry but no space for even more tools. Maybe im thinking of buying a smaller laser in the near future when my project is successfull and i start another one...

 

Best regards!

Update 10:


 


Hey guys,


 


Ive got some bigger updates for you!


 


I started on testing fans and mounting them to the radiators and into the case. In first i had some(16) Noiseblocker B-12-2 eloops but despite the nice apearence of them, i had to swap them since i couldnt get rid of a low frequency noise when mounting them with the front. Ive ordered Noctuas (Industrial PWM) even though they are quite expensive.


 


Have a look…

Thanks to Mr Dellinger from Noctua who made them at least a little less expensive :D

The brown edges need some time to get used to but fortunately i wont see them a lot. Since they are very quiet, and starting from unrecognisable 200 RPM, i can live with that. The noise level is a little less more important than its look.

Following up by some acrylic work. Whoever is following my facebook page(http://www.facebook.com/acrycon) might have seen some of those spoilers.

That CnC is truly magic. Its a very elaborate midplate due to 5 layers, gluing them to have it consistent in addition to a lot of threads. Some picture of the finished played will follow at the end of this post so be patient. Continuing to read might be worth it ;)


 


Ive also got some new peripherals from Cooler Master. Thanks again to Sylvain for this awesome stuff. The quality is awesome and i dont wanna miss them. 


 


My old keyboard, well, had to get refreshed after years of duty :D

I also finished the reservoir. After having some doubts, everything is leakproof and im satisfied with the result.

But as i said before, the actual highlight should be the midplate i was working on. Its illuminated, has water distribution from part to part of the board, 5 layers of acrylic. Its realised by a combination of “endlighten XT†and trueLED Plexiglas® in combination with super bright LEDs to have a very good light distribution. Only thing ill do in future is to add a matt foil to the borders in order to not see any of those ledspots.

And here we go, just for a small test but i will fix anything when i start with the tubing today.

Im quite happy with the result and cant wait to see how it will look when filled up with both watercolors!


 


In the end i want to show you a picture of the new GPUs and the desk. There was and there will be an update soonish. I swapped from my 3 Matrix Platinum to 3 EVGA 780 TI Superclocked since they have a smaller pcb and wont be in conflict with the tubing i had planned. Unfortunately i will have to rma them (again)  since they all have coilwhining. Im feeling unlucky here. 


 


Regarding the desk, i wanna swap to a 34†widescreen (probably from AOC) to have more space for the tower.
