At first this wasn't going to be a build + buildlog but just 'a little job' at house and an aircooled htpc in a clean case. Well that turned out differently .. and now I've got to catch up :) First the cabinet. Longer then a year ago we had plans for a new home cinema cabinet. A few months ago my wife came with the idea to do something with scaffolding wood as a relative creates furniture with it.

It took quite some time before we implemented my wife her wishes and my own. Thanks Mark!

This update some more reading. For this build I really needed all the material because of the space inside. The height on the sides is 64mm and in the middle 76mm. Lots of measuring and fitting! First the Pci-e extenders from [URL=http://liheat.com.tw/]Li-Heat[/URL]. These do work with Gen3 and even on a 65cm length :) [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/41%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/41%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/42%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/42%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Off course I had to see for myself with a 50cm extender :) [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/43%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/43%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/44%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/44%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] And with the 25cm extender. This is how I want to show the GPU. [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/45%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/45%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] And 2 other nice packages from EKWB and Corsair. [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/46%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/46%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Memory where you can easily take off the heatspreaders.

(Did you know a single 180mm rad has more surface then 2x120mm? ;) ) [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/51%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/51%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] I often use Clear blocks but this time Acetal.

This way I wouldn't need to change much on the case. (Bit scared to saw in the thick anodized brushed aluminum front panel) [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/58%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/58%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Maybe do saw in frontpanel and use 50cm extender? [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/59%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/59%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Still not sure about it all, I need every millimeter. Lets strip the case even more. [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/60%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/60%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] There you go.

I think this will be it :) [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/62%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/62%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/63%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/63%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Borrowed fittings from other project to see how the loop could go. [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/64%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/64%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] My first idea was, because of the height of the case, to have the loop come out of the top of the case. But it seems that I can keep it all inside (1mm space above fittings) just not the memory block. Looks like a challenge .. maybe skip the memory block? [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/65%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/65%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Until 'somebody' offered me a solution on facebook ... more about that next time :D [URL=http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/66%20%5b2560pxl3pw%5d.JPG][IMG]http://www.l3p.nl/files/Hardware/SteigerWood/Buildlog/66%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG[/IMG][/URL] Vacation started! :) Now first further on project 'L3pipe'!

For this build I really needed all the material because of the space inside.
The height on the sides is 64mm and in the middle 76mm.
Lots of measuring and fitting!

First the Pci-e extenders from Li-Heat.
These do work with Gen3 and even on a 65cm length :)

Image

Image


Off course I had to see for myself with a 50cm extender :)

Image

Image


And with the 25cm extender. This is how I want to show the GPU.

Image


And 2 other nice packages from EKWB and Corsair.

Image


Memory where you can easily take off the heatspreaders.

Image


Corsair Link to control the fans and lighting.

Image

Image


And the EK package!

Image


Several radiators (also something for the future) to measure and fit.
(Did you know a single 180mm rad has more surface then 2x120mm? ;) )

Image


I often use Clear blocks but this time Acetal.

Image


The kitchen table is ready!

Image

Image

Image


Naked Nvidia GPU

Image


And done!

Image


Now the puzzling can start.
This way I wouldn't need to change much on the case.
(Bit scared to saw in the thick anodized brushed aluminum front panel)

Image


Maybe do saw in frontpanel and use 50cm extender?

Image


Still not sure about it all, I need every millimeter.
Lets strip the case even more.

Image


There you go.

Image


About 2mm space on all sides, products and blocks .... I think this will be it :)

Image

Image


Borrowed fittings from other project to see how the loop could go.

Image


My first idea was, because of the height of the case, to have the loop come out of the top of the case.
But it seems that I can keep it all inside (1mm space above fittings) just not the memory block.
Looks like a challenge .. maybe skip the memory block?

Image


Until 'somebody' offered me a solution on facebook ... more about that next time :D

Image


Vacation started! :)
Now first further on project 'L3pipe'!

I've always been a fan of your work and it's nice to see a different build. Keep up the great work.

I also received a very nice fan grill from MNPCTECH. The same as I still had from a previous project.

Safes a lot of time time :)

Image

Image

Image


Not sure yet if I'm going to use the cableclips as they are very short

Image


So, lets figure things out

Image


Always a bit scary with 5mm brushed anodised aluminum.

Image

Image


Fits!

Image


Also changing the little usb/audio cover under the reservoir

Image


And the top

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


By removing this it will have no spacing.

Image


Some transparent glue to be sure

Image

Image


Quicker drying :)

Image


More airflow for the bottom

Image

Image


And changing the backside

Image


Lots of drilling, sawing, filing and sanding

Image

Image


And done again

Image


Painting the shiney aluminum matte black as I don't want any light going in or out.

Image


Also had to shange the fans to make them fit with the top panel.

Image

Image


Sturdy rubbertape to seal the radiators airflow

Image


And mounted them from the bottom to the case.

Image


Also used rubbertape on the reservoir to prevent any light going out from the inside of the case

Image


This was just an idea to keep the reseroir horizontal.

Image


But as how I usual work, changed my idea, using the aluminum pipe again and found some longer M3 bolts so I can also mount the reservoir.

Image

Image


Did a lot of other small boring adjustments to make it all fit ... but I succeeded :)

Image


And then ... the cables

Image


Took me a while but also got it done. Only still need to sleeve the pump PWM cable

Image


The SSD was just as wide as the EK GTX970 block .. thought it was a nice spot and it gets cooled a bit too :)

Image


Next update .. the loop.
