Thread: Project : L3p L4n

    Project : L3p L4n

    Finally my next build
    This time not a scratch build, but a "normal" casemod.

    Before i came in touch with the world of modding and watercooling i played a lot with HTPC's
    Back then i fell in love with all the cases of Origen AE.
    Every time i was on their site, i just had to watch the topmodel.
    I knew it was just too expensive for me, also personally i think the 12" touchscreen is useless for an htpc.
    But still ... it looks so nice....

    Because i won some prizes with "L3p D3sk" in the Coolermaster compo,
    and because it was time to prepare my next build i took the step to go for the Origen S21T.
    Also because i wanted to build something that is more easy to take to lans then my previous build ^^
    Off course this all wouldn't have been possible without the help of Freddy from
    I have also chosen this case because i didn't see it being modded much yet.

    So it won't become an Htpc but a real watercooled gamer pc

    Received the case 2 days ago.
    Just had to see how the touchscreen moves and what the red Enermax fans look like in the case[/video]]

    Here all the first unpacking photo's.

    So first of all i want to thank Freddy from
    He will be the main sponsor of this project again.

    I want to use the grey plexi for the top window.
    The other plexi is just for playing with it and to find out about different colors.

    And the rest of the stuff.

    Enermax Vegas fans @ 800 RPM, i hope they will do.
    At least they are very silent.

    The Koolance stuff still in plastic.

    The Koolance Reservoir/Pump/Fancontroller/Pumpcontroller.
    Will be completely disassembled later on.

    And the Koolance Top + Heat sink (For the looks :P )

    Then the unpacking of the case i've been waiting for for over 4 years
    The blacke Origen AE S21T

    She was oh so helpful ...

    Marco from Cooler Master Nederland thanks for this silent but powerful PSU !

    Now we can test some things

    Here i will create fan holes to cool the radiators.

    Again, thanks Freddy !

    Bought these from colleague Kier aka Richard 2 x 1 Meter RGB led with controller
    Wonderful stuff for modders, also if you want to find out what colours would be best

    The idea was to make a complete red theme, but im in doubt now.

    To be one step ahead :P

    Till the next update

    The pump

    This will be the place for the Koolance controller for the pump and fans. I will remove the logo by the way

    Tested it before i disassemble it.
    It works

    Pretty compact.

    Couldn't get the tubes off without cutting them.

    Getting the top on it.

    And the heat sink. (Yes... only for the looks :P)

    Done !

    And a small movie of the controller in action. Maybe i will disable that beep, or atleast make it less loud.[/video]]

    And received some material.
    I'm very happy with it, now i can also measure some more.
    You can´t see it very well on photo´s but it´s very narrow all inside.
    The Gpu´s are 29.5cm

    Didn't have a mouse yet for this build so ordered this one from the asus shop.
    Think it'll look good next to it

    And the the very nice package from EKWB !
    Also got the raincoat, no-one wanted it there, but since im from Holland ... :P

    Going to use the EK Top/Res instead of the Koolance top, this cause of the limited space i have.
    The Koolance heatsink will remain.

    Thanks Gregor and EKWB !

    Used the hardware from the CM compo to fit some more in.
    As you can see, not much space.

    Got some good news from Asus.
    Just 2 weeks before the hardware will arrive !
    Can't wait :P

    I've been talking a lot to Kier lately.
    We also exchange a lot of hardware and WC products.
    Also we ordered @ MDPC-x together, told him i didn't have much time the coming 3 weeks. So he said, send me the PSU with the rest, i'm bored. (Before he started his TJ11 project)

    So ... Made by Kier

    One week later this was on my table

    Also extra sleeve for the sata cables and some mounting stuff, the rest will follow.

    Richard .. thanks a lot my friend, no one who can do this faster and better

    And the second order @ Highflow.

    For the Koolance controller. 2 x Koolance temp sensor and 1 x Koolance flowsensor

    Hope it'll go to 5Ghz :P

    And tape, lots of tape to protect the case later on.

    Because i only know since a few weeks i have to cool down 2 Matrix cards i ordered fans with 1500 rpm now, think 800 rpm won't be enough.
    Luckily i could change the red blades without a problem.

    Rear fan replaced, also a black fanguard, screws will come later.

    Lets change the PSU too.

    Had to change the wiring, the leds didnt work on the low voltage the psu gave to the fan.

    So a seperate 12V for the leds now.

    All red and 1500 rpm now (max)

    Even now still in doubt if i will do the fans on the outside and rads inside or rads outside and fans inside.
    Casewindows in the top will be tinted so all the light is no problem.

    For future purposes the leds are changeable with one push on the button

    So again, thanks Freddy for the nice discount !

    Finally bought my first dremel
    (Bargain sale somewhere)

    And for all the small future damage i will create with it on different cases :P

    Project : L3p L4n

    My vacation has started and didn't do anything on the case yet
    I did practise some.

    From the start i had the idea to make the fan/rad guard just like the S21T's little brother.

    I'm already walking with that idea for 2 weeks now how to do that.
    The case is 5mm thick, brushed and black anodized aluminium.
    So i guess i can't restore the smallest scratch.
    Today i just tried to make such a fan hole in a piece of 6mm thick aluminium.

    First had to do some shopping again. (The dremel virus even got me before i started working with it)

    piece of 6mm thick garbage measured out.

    Still no idea how or what, but i've got to do it with these tools.

    Forget about a dremel in 6mm alu :P so lets prepare for the jigsaw.

    Only had a bad quality metalsaw, the woodsaw worked better

    After sawing, the dremel works out fine.

    Grinding the edges from the Bitspower radguard. (Starting to love the dremel )

    Bending the edges a little more.

    Tapped the radguard in it's place, in the case itself i will use kit / black glue to hold it in it's place even better.

    Painted it black for the picture.
    In this picture the guard needed a few more taps.

    And this is how i want it .... X 3
    Next time further on with how i will fasten the rads/fans.
