Well I am lucky enough to have a little pause in my build schedule and I will be working on a project that has been rattling around in my head for over a year. Using some pebble finish lexan, aluminum angles and a lot of cooling gear I'll be crafting a new cooler for my rig. I've about given up on internally LCing my own rigs because I tinker too much and internal LCS is usually like putting 25 pounds of crap in a 5 pound bag...just try upgrading without completely draining and taking everything to bits...it'll result in much I've been thinking about how I want this to work and there are some guiding factors: must be really awesome looking (as it is likely going to be something I use to pimp myself out ); must outperform any "normally aspirated" hotrod cooler ever made (or else whyt bother?); must be quiet enough to have close to the desk. My current LC set up is quite potent...but the rig is pushing it past it's capacity... I am looking for input and my design is really open. I've been visualizing a number of configs but I am not ties to any. I am tied to the LC gear as it is on hand and it's what I intend to use. GEAR 3 x Thermochill PA120.3 3 x EK Cylinder Reservoirs 3 x Alphacool 1510 pumps Meanwell S150-24 24V PSU Emtel 12V PSU Low Restriction Quick Connects might not use these...too restrictive?) 9 X 67cfm S-Flex I'll post up some sketches in a bit. So: Good Looking; Powerful; Quiet are the main guides to the design. Secondary considerations are: use materials on hand; keep Form Factor as small as possible without sacrificing any of the main goals. Materials I have on hand are aluminum extrusions and acrylic. Although I could purchase mesh and other sheet goods to expand on a good design. Headed down the hill to the shop to see how this all stacks up.
