Saw something similar done once, in solid copper tubing of course. I am also guessing there is going to be a lot more awesome here with the hard tubing and all the fittings in play here!

Also does that scale read 170/190 lbs, or is that in kg?

I will test the acrylic some more the coming days :)
(There is a possibility I will be using 12/10 PETG though which is almost unbreakable)

First unpack this amazing package from Bitspower.
This will hopefully be forming the construction :)

Unpacking by candlelight.












If you walk away he only needs 30 seconds to inspect and take ownership.





















Again thanks a lot Vincent for the cooperation!

Thanks for the interest guys!

These days are crazy busy at home and at work so didn't have time for an update yet :)


First another package before I can show my ideas.




White coolant.




Could be I will cancel one 240 or 360.




Should do it for 2 loops :)




Always liked this most, clear blocks.




There will be an acrylic top incoming for the X99 mosfet block.




Replaced the cpu bracket with a nickel plated one.




Total pic.




Thanks again Niko and Peter!



A lovely evening of bolting..






Done




And a first impression.

I hope everyone enjoyed Christmas!

Here the hardware I will be using on this project.
It's the biggest honor to be able to carry out my passion with the brands which
were also my favorite before I started modding.
Doing this all in one big post, sorry for the amount of awesomeness!

First the Corsair package.






This came as a big surprise, didn't expect a 64GB Octo kit.






Can't wait to play with this. (And the rest off course)












An evening of bolting lightbars.








Straight from Nvidia USA.














:love:




From Azerty and Intel Netherlands.








And from Asus Benelux.




Ready to install.






Checking how the Deluxe will look without the white panels and covers.




Will use the white I/O panel myself though.




Because I had some problems in the past after mounting blocks, testing the system this time in a temporary case.




To get my ideas I usually put something like this on my desk for a week.
I was looking for a Dominator Platinum style.




And on a Saturday morning I start messing with Sketchup :)










After a lot of running up and down to the attic to measure.




Not sure yet if the grey parts will be aluminum or acrylic.



Thanks Corsair, Nvidia, Asus, Azerty and Intel!





Here's a small giveaway for you all :)

Happy new year to every one!

A nice evening of blocking :)






Perfect to remove EK logo's and replace them.








Done!




But first the original Nvidia SLI bridge ..
Want to polish it and have a little problem.
I don't want to place the GPU's that close together and the spaced-slot bridge wasn't an option with the X99 Deluxe.




First dismantle it.




This is the space I need, just one slot further.




And took it apart even more.




While brainstorming also got an other idea.




Let's first sand and polish.




And clean it up again.




Got taken care of very well ;)




Also done!




Just going to use the other bridge with the original housing. Do need to isolate it with some tape.




Cut away the top green layer so I will be able to use a white or blue one.




Because I'm going to use the Corsair Link Commander also decided to use the Corsair RGB LED strips :)




Add glue and wait :)




Next day .. satisfied.




So ... got what I wanted :)




Back to the setup.






Gotta play with it off course ;)












The color will probably become white




Trying to get inspired for the next update :)




And a little round-up video incl. the SLI/GPU enlightening.

Small update.

Back to the SSD's.




Lets first cut them in half :)








Some people got scared by this photo on facebook :)




Giving the Dominator Platinum fins a nice rounding.




And some more sawing, filing and sanding.






Should become something like this :)




Corsair Force LX Dominator Platinum 1TB Raid0 SSD :)




Also got the question if I was able to do something with the new Neutron XT's but the PCB is a little larger.
Will come up with something different for them ;)




Also got the pipe from CoolForce/Nanoxia for this project. Something I haven't been working with before.
12/10 mm PETG ... Finally! (instead of acrylic)





Made a little video of it with some of the differences.

Sorry for the late update but I was kinda busy :)


Got a very nice package from Parvum Systems.




Justin en Shaun wanted to help me out, win-win!










You can ask these guys anything, they can do it :)














Again, thanks a lot Parvum Systems!




Fixing a little mistake I made, went well with a 20mm countersink.




Finally playing around with fittings!






This update was a little late because of my own pc upgrade, and ...



Spent a week on Cooler Master Headquarters with Richard Kiersgieter, Richard Surroz, Ronnie Hara, Mathieu Heredia en Stuart Tonks.
All I can say .. it was AWESOME :p

So .... drilled some holes :)

First getting all the measurements.






I planned to weld the top part to the bottom part for max stability.
However decided to do it with what I have at home and by hand :)




Lovely to work outside.






And the top part (mainboardtray)




And how I want to mount it.










Work space after an afternoon of drilling, sawing, sanding, filing and tapping :)




Also mounted the PSU frame.






And blocks done for frame mounting.




Now just need to mount them.










And mount the mainboard tray standoffs








Done!






Adjusting the reservoir holders




To be able to mount them to the radiators.




And mounted some parts :)

Back!
Was a bit busy cause of Computex - Cooler Master en Nanoxia :)


First gave the 'Corsair Force LX raid0 ssd' a new home with 3M duallock.



And then ... how to start here .. I really hate cable management. (maybe cause I'm an electrician?)




Testing the fans and LEDS at night.




And back to the cables, one by one.




Behind the 240 radiator are a lot of cables hidden from fans, pumps and the Corsair Links.




I was missing something on the radiators and push/pull was a bit too much in my opinion.




So went for these radguards from Highflow with white inlay.




15 minutes later.




Better.




Changed the GPU cables from 6+2 pins to 6 pins.




Oops ... got to hide this behind the PSU.




So removing more unnecessary connectors.




For this project I was looking for a clip in the same style as the project itself.
So sat down before it and just waited till something came up.
Why not in same style as the Dominator Platinum fins?
Had a good talk with my bud Scott Bruins and he came with this design .. awesome :)






We were both already in contact with Nanoxia / Coolforce and because they saw something in it too they decided to bring them out :)




This is the first prototype and the finals will be less wide (1cm on a 24-pin) and will have 2 x M3 mounting holes on the back.




And ordered a Bitspower X-station so I can easily play around with the 4 different pumps/loops.




Would like to know your thoughts about the clip :)
