I was very fortunate to have been commissioned to build a large wooden tower case, to be used to hold a very large water cooled rig. The case was designed to contain an EATX motherboard, seven 5.25-inch drives and eight 3.5-inch hard drives. Two water cooling loops will be installed, with two 120.4 radiators mounted in the top chamber, expelling warm air through the perforated aluminum. Each chamber is fed with cool air from the bottom of the case via an air duct formed by the solid front panel.
