Hybrid cooled SR-2 in Level10
i working now for some time already on my case mod,
This build is made possible by and thanks to
Xtreme Case Mods Australia
Cooler Master Benelux
what i make from this :
i made this :
and now i'm building the cooling in it, it looks like this how it is now :
I was in hospital for 1 month, and long time sick home, but now i am busy again on the mod :
Boreas chiller :
today only change the power for the led's in the Corsair HX1000 psu what i made see tru,
and put the first led's in the 5mm fan shroud for the boreas chiller :
De Boreas Chiller :

today received 3 packages, so work again on the parts and case, the boreas chiller is finished, no to the Freezone Elite and Freezone V1. :
new TEC plates in tha house, so now i can finish the Freezone V1 cooler :
the psu painting in black , de thermaltake for the TEC's :
the Coolit Boreas is finished, now the dual bay psu and the rest of coolers :
De thermaltake dual bay psu is also finished, pianted outside black, and inside silver for putting the light nice out,
only the psu front i need to put back :
painted because it looked like this in gold :
Koolance TMS-200 with expansion board modding :
I got some connector to short, need to order more
i customized the 3D fangrill so it fits on my Coolit Boreas Chiller :
This was how it looks standard :
And after the adjustment, who see the difference ???? lol :tong:
And this is how it going to fit in black and red on the Chiller :
Mounting for the Boreas Chiller made, was first the HDD trays.
Now made mat black acryl with behind the mounting plates for the boreas chiller.
And still need to finish it nice off and put holes for the cables of the boreas :
this is the difference of size between my old skulltrail (intel skulltrail D5400XS) and my current new one SR-2 5520 :
Now i made new holes for the motherboard spacers, and put tread in it for the spacers :
All nessesairy screws of the motherboard just fit nicely on the tray :
now only need the dangerden 10 PciE slot IO-shield :
And changing the backplates to for the Koolanc 360 blocks on cpu's :
|Jan 14, 2011, 11:53 AM||#3|
Here's the 3d fan grill in primer with the adjustments for a little more airflow, ready to sand again :
the mounting for the Boreas chiller is ready exept for the holes to put the wires and tubing tru :
fan grill got it first paint job , is get dry now :
and the front plate for the drive bays has a primer :
and first paint job in mat black (just fresh, needs to dry) :
Coolit Freezone Elite is ready to and cpu's are on the mobo ,
And here are some pics of the total view :
|Jan 14, 2011, 11:54 AM||#4|
allmost finished, just have to make it nice :
Two Koolance 360 rev1.1 , and Koolance SR-2 Classified full cover block are arrived :
after received it, let's open up the full cover block SR-2 and change it a little bit :
a lot of sanding it to get the nickel of it, and then the first layer of primer :
first layer mat black is on, tomorrow sanding it and paint it the last time for finishing touch,
after when it's dry mount the block again and put it on the motherboard :
SR-2 full cover block is ready and mounted :
from this :
i made these, and a little bit more, only waiting for a new shipment of red connectors :
|Jan 14, 2011, 11:56 AM||#5|
i used these ones :
And cut them smaller :
And use heatshrink to make the Black line on it :
The other cpu his power cable is also done, and the PciE cable also :
Total overview of the powercables on the motherboard, the green circle is where the cables leave the case to the other side for connection to the powersupply :
new parts in :
Evga SR-2 1200w psu
PciE connector for GPU's with a 2200UF (MicroFarad) condensator and ferrit-cores :
Cpu ATX power connectors, also with 2200UF (microFarad) Condensator and ferrit-cores :
and te best part of the power supply is on the back of it lol :
Also LGA1156 socket isolation and new inox Backplates for my SR-2 :
also i got two red displays in for on my controller.
To swat the green light lcd out for a red symbol / black background display :
take a HB624 controller with ALMEGA88V chip :
put some cables and a pot meter on it :
with the pot meter 10K i can adkust the screen light :
To see real time the 12v rail of the SR-2 powersupply, and monitore the power drawn of the three coolit coolers :
cpu disable jumpers soldered for make the connector for it in front of the case :
need to cut new Socket isolation because SR-2 has no big condensators next to the sockets, so i can use some more isolation : :
putted also three temp sensors under the full cover blok, to measure the CPU PWM 1 en 2 and the NB temp
with a Koolanc TMS-200 controller :
total overview of the mobo in current state:
|Jan 14, 2011, 11:58 AM||#6|
today little testing en measurement, the boreas chiller and the freezone will be hanged on the power use controller.
but a lot of cables here that needs to be in the case fitted.
Alu plaat of 1.5mm is in, tomorrow making the adjustment of the mobo cover :
Today being busy with making place for all the usb cables, power led, hdd led etc to go away from mobo as fast as possible, not to show to much cables in case.
Also adjusting some things to get the mobo cover enlargement fitted on case,
used a lot of dremel cutting disks :
And because the Evga SR-2 mobo doesn't have condensators like a normal LGA1366 mobo around the socket, i needed to make some new socket isolation kits for around cpu with more amramflex, pictures will say enough :
And here you see the normal cut-out of a lga1366 socket kit and that for a Evga SR-2 mobo :
just bended the alu plate in the same curve as the standard mobo cover also have :
The curve in the red circle, the green lines is untill where the mobo cover needs to get bigger for the bigger mobo :
The original mobo cover has a serious cut-out for the adjustment,
and you see the four square holes for mounting the new alu plate :
This is the bottom of the original mobo cover, is a serious cut-out on,
so Quad sli GTX480 still fitts :
The new alu plate working on :
And here it's fitted on the case base plate :
Nice fit :
And with the base plate of the big Boreas Chiller,
you see that the ATX 24pin needs a cut-out, and two tubing with a BP fitting,
also the Coolit Freezone V1 needs his place in this plate :
And here you see what also needs to be cutt-out in alu plate :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:00 PM||#7|
also with very small iron files i have to make the honey roster on another place :
Update after some hours work :
the BP fittings are in place also the cutt-out for the ATX 24pin :
BP fittings close-up :
The outcome of the atx24pin :
Inside of the ATX24pin :
A Total overview with the motherboard and his power connectors installed for viewing cable routing :
CPU1 Close-up :
CPU0 Close-up :
ATX 24pin close-up :
ATX 24pin Close-up while motherboard is plugged in :
Total View ATX24 pin :
TOTAL overview mobo + atx connectors , alu plate :
Working on the case again al day, bend the alu plate, making some acryl ready,
the extra piece of hight is for the cpu power cables of the left cpu :
With the cooler on his place :
With the red acryl on his place also for the enlargement of the mobo cover :
And then as last also grey smoke like on the cpu cooler left en on the vga's, is for breading room :
here are some new pics, with a little modification on case, and did some fine work :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:01 PM||#8|
here are some pics of what i did today, it still needs some work offcourse.
But now you got an idea how i will do it :
i give the alu plate some more shape :
sanding, prime and paint the alu parts (if i'm up for it)
Now it's good visible what i whanted to do with the case to fit the bigger mobo SR-2 in this case (normally no fit lol)
Sorry for the bad pics, not enough light but i whanted to show you guys already what i did today :
Here are some better pics in daylight.
I didn't close the cover good, it's not that it has a space between it lol.
The parts have now there first primer coating :
And here the first parts in primer, i sprayed it very thick,
because i nedd to get al the tiny flows sanded out of it, but will get more layers :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:03 PM||#10|
primed en sanded, nog putting on the first layer of MAT black paint, only the pics sucks lol :
the alu plate for the mobo cover is painted and mounted, here some pics of it :
putting the isolation on the backplates of mobo, with the inox backplates :
And this is how the case is on this moment, also fitted a 16x2 red/black lcd above the Boreas chiller.
Also you see now how hidden the ATX24pin really is, pure cable management with the 90° connectors :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:04 PM||#11|
Total overview of the case how he's now.
Most of the cables are on/in it : audio, usb, powerswitch, hdd led, power led, reset, reset led, debug lcd, 2 sata, all atx and pci kabels.
Evga PSU is also on his place together with the dual bay psu in front :
overview of mobo with all cables on it :
Also i have made a cable for the EVbot connection in the mobo IO-Shield, so the connection will be in the front plate, where it's easier to acces to hook up the EVbot :
Total overview of the current cables in the case lols,
but they are not all the cables yet, and need also some controllers to put there
(coolit, koolance, poweruse) :
New Armaflex lasercutted is in, and fits the SR-2 with waterblock perfectly :
Here are some pics with all coolers on there place, now you see also why i make the 90° connectors on the mobo :
Here you see, with fittings and all, i calculated just enough space for cpu block etc :
and this is why i made those 90° connectors, so maximum on cable management :
next layer of armaflex :
Cut-out for the waterblock :
And also soldering some SMD-led's for in the case,
when you solder these smd-led's be shure you use Kynar whire, THE wire for working with SMD's :
And putting the smd-led's on place with double component epoxy :
Just like i put 320 smd-led's in previous casemod : Chiller's Evga Monsta :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:08 PM||#13|
Jesus has nothing to do with it hahahaha
I cut up an Evga ECP Panel for building it in the front of my case.
little soldering, and i will have a EVbot connecting in front, a DEBUG lcd, Clear CMOS switch and switches for disable PciE and cpu's.
This will be build in a Lian-Li slim-drive Bracket where together with a slot-in dvd drive also can go two SSD harddrives in it :
i cut the ECP Panel up because you see always mods with just the ECP Panel screwed in the case, now i change this to my own taste.
Here is the Lain-Li slim dvd drive bracket,
(bought in usa)
Here you see how i build in all the different switches, lcd en connectors, these will come behind a grey smoke acryl plate :
Clear CMOS with his tiny hole :
Total overview of the case :
In the case it's still dark, but also on the graphics cards will come nice mods etc......:
the Evga ECP Panel of Classified mobo's, i cut it in pieces,
And this is what i did with those pieces, i only whanted to use the Clear CMOS button and the debug lcd,
also i enlarged the connectors in the IO-Shield of the Evga EVbot to the front plate for easy acces.
There still needs to come a slim dvd drive slot-in and a grey smoke front plate :
have taken the front panel connector of my old intel skulltrail mobo (dremel in mobo)
And used this connector in my slim drive bay of lian-li, together with the ECP panel i cutted up,
so that i can hoop up the ECP panel cable of mobo in my dvd drive,and from here everything will be splitted to debug lcd, power and reset switches and cpu/PciE disabled switches
and hhere you see it, connector for ECP panel connector that comes from mobo, and connector for power and reset switches :
also the halve of the cables is managed, have some more cables to do and connectors to solder.
Have also the Koolanc TMS-200 controller build-in the case and hooked up the first cables and sensors
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:10 PM||#14|
some small packages arrive:
Sata slim line dvd RW drive :
Sata slim drive adapter to normal sata :
adapter on it screwed :
red smd-led strips for some light inside the case :
3x Nexus air-beamers for 80/92mm fans, also here comes a nice mod with in the case,
also some 3mm led's , 1 for the freezone V1 cooler, the other one is for in SB of Mobo full cover block instead of the stock blue led's :
As you can see in 1 drive bay in my rig can hold more then 1 item , is multi functional :
HDD for extra space
and dvd drive itself
received my prize today, pics will say enough :
got new bolts in red alu, and switchen for disable pciE and cpu's
2 new cpu-blocks are on their way :
i still needed a fan grill, but stock grills i didn't like :
so i did this with an airguard grill :
i whanted first the disable PciE and cpu switchen what are jumpers on the evga ECP Panel in the front panel.
But i changed my mind, so nobody can fidle with them, i put them on the back of the dvd drive next to the connector of it.
drive bay is ready, now with the PciE and Cpu switchen on it.
ready to build in and make the front plate of grey smoke :
drive bay is finished, now only makinjg the front plate, grey smoke acryl,
here you see the connectors for power power led reset and reset switch
cpu and pciE disable, ecp connector to mobo,
and in front the Evga EVbot connector, debug lcd and clear Cmos switch :
Busy on the clean front plate of grey smoke acryl.
Now made the EVbot connector in place,
only the dvd cut-out and clear CMos and offcourse the drive bay PSU needs some fresh air to.
The outside needs to be finished at the end :
little update, pics say enough i think :
here a little update of my front plate, only need to find a nice grid to put in there so it comes nice untill the front :
tomorrow big works on rig :
Coolingpaste is used : Liquid Ultra,
temp sensor by every cpu,
Adjust the mounting with red smoke acryl voor more pressure on armaflex and for visual effects,
start to cut also some tubing Norprene on size,
only waiting for next orders to arrive of tube clamps, 3mm red led's, and some more stuff.
The first triple kit memory is also ordered : Corsair Dominator GT 12Gb triple kit 2000Mhz CL9,
where there will come 4 kits on the mobo of these.
enjoy the pics :
|Jan 14, 2011, 12:11 PM||#15|
here some show pics,the effect of the custom mounting is now nice visible,
while i'm busy with all the cable management :

tubing is almost ready just need 3th pump, a koolance PMP-400 with acetal top,
and building a drainvavle beneath.
then it's all ready just need memory dom GT 2000Mhz 12gb Triple kits.
enjoy the pics because it's closing up this build, just few mods and it's ready :
what am i planning to do ?
the bottom is as good as finished,
just need to order a flat pump with top...
if a Koolanc PMP-400 pump with top is maximum 40mm heigh.
I can take the bottom out any time it's a tight fit and is on 2 alu plates, nice and steady.
The usb internal, sata and ECP connector on the mobo is nice clean now.
This is no metal plate but 4mm not shiny black acryl plate PMMA15
only needs to get connectors for the PciE powercables for the GPU's :
after the drain valve needs also a exit for the liquid :
