    So, i like watercooling, A LOT! And that have lead me to a derail on my PC-Beto project.
    I recently got the Phobya radiator stand and fell in love with it.

    I then talked with aquatuning about making a project over this thing, because as you might know, overkill is underrated.

    Watercooling and hardware supplied by:
    [​IMG]

    It didnt take long for Christian from aquatuning to agree to send some stuff to make this overkill station

    Please notice! This "build" will feature minor modding, and LOTS of watercooling!

    [​IMG]
    Now this was how i recieved the radiator stand, now lets get some hardware into it;)

    [​IMG]
    Here it is, filled up with some stuff Christian already sent me.

    [​IMG]
    But trust me, there will be much, much more stuff in this stand;)

    I already have the finished list of parts, but i dont want to say to much:D But as you might have guessed two more 360´s might find its way inthere:idea:
    This is actually all for now, but i hope to continue this in a few weeks when i get some more hardware!

    Hope this have caught your attention;)

    Damn that's a big stand you could cool a V8 engine in that thing with the right rad.

    On the more useful side you could have independent loops for different components so there would be easier to swap.

    Also i would try to mount the pumps and a powersupply for all of them above the rads

    We are here now:D

    Time for the next update on this monster :D

    Watercooling and hardware supplied by:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    I started out by prepping the radiators with fittings:

    [​IMG]
    And then took the fans out, and they shine nice and red;)

    [​IMG]
    Now, a tiny problem, the QD´s couldnt really fit beacuse of the radiators.

    [​IMG]
    Badabim, badabum, problem solved. Just turn the radiators! This also makes the tubing look a bit better.

    [​IMG]
    I also had to connect the radiators in series.

    [​IMG]
    This was simply done with small lengths of tubing.

    [​IMG]
    Now this is something that i doesnt do often, a shot with a messy background:p I was in the middle of figuring out how to run the tubing the best.

    [​IMG]
    And tell me, doesnt this look badass!?! Dont mind the tubing on the left, i ran out, so that piece was to short lol!

    [​IMG]
    I wanted to route the tubing on the left like this too, but i didnt have enough. It fits great in between the fans, and is very stealthy inthere!

    [​IMG]
    And in case you are wondering why i placed the fans like i did, this is the reason. They are just so damn easy to clean! Just pull of the blades, and whipe them off :D

    Thats all for now. I need to get some more tubing, and get the MiniNG installed ;)

    Later!
