[Worklog] Project SnowLite by FlowMods

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I am Filippo and I am a 20 years old italian modder! Last year I finished a mod with Cooler Master Italy, called Project Alpha, which had a lot of success! Then I had the luck to be invited to participate in a big project for Nanoxia, which invited me to Germany to build a desk pc for their booth at Computex in June 2015!
 
I am going to introduce this new mod sponsored by ThermalTake that I thank you immensely for the support!
 
The Mod, in white & black theme, is based on a Core X9 Snow Edition to which I decided to remove the original front and midplate and to replace them with two pieces of acrylic completely designed by me and made with laser cutting and CNC milling machine!
 
The project includes two liquid cooling loop which will respectively cool the CPU and 2 GTX 970 strix!
Each loop has a D5 pump and a 480mm radiator connected by rigid pipes while under the midplate I assembled systems with flexible tubes to facilitate the assembly operations.
The threads for fittings mounted on midplate were hand made, and the work was not so easy. The hard part was being able to have a tip that does not split open the plexiglass out of the hole, I solved that problem by bringing the drill bit to changr the cut angle to the company I'm referring to the works in acrylic!
All cables are sleeved by me, it wasn't easy since it's the first time i made a full sleeved cable set, but sleeves from Icemodz are amazing, and the will be cool :D
 
But let me say the components of this mod, which I list below:
 
HW:
Asus Maximus VII Ranger
i5 4670k
2x Asus GTX 970 Strix
Thermaltake Thoughpower Grand Platinum 1200w
HDD: 1TB Barracuda
Ram: 4x4 DDR3 1600 Avexir Core Red Led
SSD: 1x Samsung 850 EVO 256GB
 
Loops:
2x pumps D5 Thermaltake (Pacific P1 black)
2x trays cylindrical Thermaltake (Pacific T22)
2x 480mm radiators Thermaltake (Pacific RL480)
WB 2x GPU Asus Strix 970 Thermaltake
1x WB CPU Thermaltake Pacific W1
8x Fans Thermaltake Riing White LED
Several fittings Thermaltake Chrome
Tubes 16/12 PETG ThermalTake
DP Ultra liquid Aquacomputer
Aquaero 5 LT
Power Adjust 3 Ultra by Aquacomputer
2 Temperature sensor to monitor the loops temperatures.
 
I take this opportunity to thank ThermalTake and especially Andy, who supplied me with such a large number of components to build this mod to re-enter in the world of modding after a stop of some months.
I also thank Mundi from Icemodz.com who provided me all the material needed to create my sleeved cables!
 
I leave you to the photos of the progress!
 
Filippo

Good evening to all!

 

New GPU's WB and 480mm radiator arrived from TT! Awesome!

 

I also continued working on the case with:

 

- Sleeved GPU Cables

- Mounted second 480 radiator with 4 white riing

- Switched the inlet and outlet from the radiator, to have the outler on the top hole cause air tends to go high

- CPU loop filled after many problems, but i did it!

 

Cheers!
