    My new, as yet unfinished, case...

    I am building myself a new case for an H2O system:
    (Click the images for bigger versions)


    The left hand bank has a custom radiator (120mm*350mm core) and 3 120mm YS-Tech fans (will be run 5v-7v)
    The right bank will have the PSU mounted at the top and has space for 10 HDDs underneath.
    Both banks are on piano hinge and open outwards for internal access.



    There is room for 2 CD-Roms and a full size ATX mobo in the main part of the case - this is from an old steel case that I have cut down and re-riveted as well as removed alot of un-needed steel work. The CDs will be stealthed and the buttons mounted below the PSU - accessable though the 115mm hole and 2 Blue cathodes are going to installed behind the fans. I am probably going to get the case anodised in a loud colour, most likely purple.
    The rest is all made from 18 (~1.2mm) or 20(~1mm) gauge sheet aluminum and 10mm L-section or 10*20mm U-section

    I am putting this on a back burner for a bit, while I finish my custom waterblock.

    A 114mm (4 1/2") arbour (Hole saw) and a pillar drill on its lowest speed setting.

    the metal work was bent on a folding machine which allowed me to get <0.5mm errors in length and the sides to be ~parrallel.

    Costs:
    Old case 0.0
    Aluminum (Sheet and L) - 20.0
    Hinge 5.0
    Fans and grills 50.0 - 120mm fans arent cheep
    Radiator - 60.0
    Screws and rivits 4.0

    Shame - these were just quick pics to show it off.

    I saw the waterblock pics at home (TPR ) and they have come out really well esp like the copyright watermark. Hopefully we will have a good testing session at the next mojos, GAteKeeper Block Mark II is entered final design pre-purchase of copper and alumium.

    Then we start on your prommie Evap head
