    WTH is that you may ask.

    It's an external radiator/fan/pump enclosure for three MCR320 radiators and up to 18 120mmx 38mm fans.

    There's a vid that might make it's intended purpose a bit clearer.

    With top off easy access to interior.

    This shot from the construction phase shows how the radiator lays against the Red Oak cleats.

    [​IMG]
    Unit is on it's side so use your imagination :p the rads are at a 45 degree angle and held in place by the fans protruding through the cleats. Protruding. :D No tools required to mount the rad/fan assemblies.

    [​IMG]
    An MCR320 is about an inch thick. That shows how the unit kills off the sound waves by using the 45 degree angle to reflect the sounds at adjoining walls of the compartment rather than straight at your earbulbs.

    Some more construction shots

    That deserves a nice stain or something. Or are you going to keep it that way for the nice smell of sawdust?

    It's already packed and ready to ship. The owner will likely put a clear finish on it. Reality bites: there was a budget so I had to stop.

    Thanks for sll the responses guys :)

    The Cabinet part is $450 and The Manifold was $260. So without any hardware. Just the cabinet and manifold we're talking $710 before shipping.

    :pimp:

    He'll set it up so all three are in series with a pump before and a pump after and then the manifold will just simplify the plumbing to and from the case somewhat by breaking it into CPU, GPU and Chipset loops. I found having three seperate loops to the manifold really helped when I wanted to pull the cards or CPU and flush it out or whatever.

    Techinically it is one loop that splits into three parallel loops.
