Schoolproject: The Extreme IV v2

Recommended Posts

The Extreme IV v2
I Am currently working on a school project where i have build an own computer case from scratch and the idea is to fill it with "extreme hardware".
I know that some of my hardware is not extreme but it works for me. I will upgrade the gpus someday when i can afford it.
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme x79
Intel i7 3930K
16gb Corsair Vengeance
HD 6870 Crossfire
Corsair AX860
Corsair Force 3 120GB
5x Scythe Slip Stream (temporary)
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (temporary)

Water Cooling:
EK-Supremacy - Acetal + Nickel
EK-Reservoir Combo DCP 4.0
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (360)
EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)
2x EK-FC6870 - Acetal+EN Nickel
2x EK-FC6870 Backplate

Now lets see some pictures!
Special thanks to EK waterblocks who sponsor my project with water cooling, couldn't do it without you nice fellows at EK!
CAD model of how the chassis will look like without the side panels and the motherboard plate.
I use this machine to bend the plates.
Making duplicates of everything in case something goes wrong.
The rear plate will be screwed in to the motherboard plate. You can also see the front.
I choose to only have one 5.25 "for a fan controller because i dont need an optical drive.
The "basket" that will hold the fan controller in place.
The case is starting to take shape.

It has been a while since I updated but have had other things for me so haven't had the time to upload the pictures. As you can see, I mounted some parts out of the water cooling in the computer. I had to remove the plates that lock out the power supply as the res was to high.
Took the fan control from the other project, I will buy a new one if i need to some day.
I also changed fans to 5 Phobya Nano-G 12.
Cpu block in place! Really easy to install on socket 2011.
Pump o res combo assembled.
I put a fill port on the bottom so I can drain the whole system easily.
As this was my first time to install watercooling I put a lot of paper in the system while I was testing the watercooling. The gpu blocks didn't fit but i am working on a solution so stay tuned!

Looking nice so far :thumbsup:


Wish I had school projects like that :rolleyes:



School project! The best I ever did was a small 9V power supply!



I made a basic signal generator and variable power supply. I could only have hoped to do something like this. Good work :thumbsup:


Thanks guys! :rolleyes:
