Hello everyone. I wanna start my new worklog here :)

TENEBRIS

TENEBRIS means "The dark" or "the darkness"
The whole build gets a mix from matt black and some darkred (RAL3007) details. The liquid gets darkred(close to black) and alos i use black fittings ! The design consists of different lasered acrylic panels. On the PSU shroud i will place a nice distribution plate as well. In this build i will also do a nice cablemangement on the backside of the mainboardtray with a full sleeved psu cable set.


Before i start her i have to say "Thanky You" to my supporters in this build. Fractal Design ! EK Waterblocks ! Team Group ! Liquid Cool !

the top shroud is something i think the R6 badly needs as a factory option

i want something like the front of the case, on the top - solid top for sound absorption, but passive ventilation

Happy new Year everyone :)

Lets go on with the TENEBRIS Build

Today i designed my Custom RES for the TENEBRIS project ! All STEP CAD files of the Distribution plate and Reservoir are transfered to Stealkey Customs.

My Custom RES gets also a acryl cover. Its made of 10mm Acryl PMMA panels with 5mm deep pockets in the bottom and top panel.

The RES gets connected with a 16mm Hardtube to the distriplate. The fillport is on the backside. Cant wait to hold all cnc and lasered parts in my hands !

where does one get a ventilated front panel like this? i'm having a hard time keeping my 7960X's temps in check in my R6 and i have a feeling that it's at least partially due to lack of air going to the front rad.

Fractal need replacement fronts for the R6 like they've done for the meshify line... this whole build is a good example of how fractal could improve things
