Been busy the last 4 months with a little project for the LDLC Modding Trophy 2015
I was asked by In Win to choose any case and mod it.
Easy choice for me!

When I saw the D-Frame the first time I already had plans for it.

I had to post in their blog first until finished but now I will also show all details here in the coming few weeks.
If you've already seen it somewhere please don't share here yet :)

Have fun!

Lets kick-off with a huge update!

First the case.

2%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Asked for black rubbers from the start .. no red please.

3%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Nice day in the sun.

4%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

5%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Huge card!

6%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


And the mobo, mem and cpu

7%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Playing around with pipes and possibilities

9%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

8%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


The first planning.

10%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Quite some time went into figuring out something to stay within the budget.
But also a loop so you can always see it flowing and a construction to maintain stability.

11%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Off to the attic

12%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

Always a bit scary at the start

13%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


But have to admit .. also afterwards this time :)

14%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

Sharp edges be gone.

15%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


And more pipes.

16%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Top side done!

17%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

18%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


How strong it is even without any glue used.

19%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Finishing the edges.

20%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

21%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

22%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Inside the frame I used flexible tubing, used glue on the tube fittings for extra stability.
(Quite a struggle)

23%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

24%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

25%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

26%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG

 

27%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


Intently engaged :)

28%20%5b550xl3pw%5d.JPG


And giving it a rest.

Really loop idea :0 enjoying it and subbed! 

 

Are you concerned about the metal in the tubing effecting the loop? Is that a thing? 

He has tubing inside the frame, so the liquid doesn't make contact with the metal.


I'm here just for the photos.

I think that I broke the follow button, all jokes aside that mod is just brilliant.

 

It may not be a dual lga1366 rig but this is something that @alpenwasser would like

Gorgeous build! Loving the extra details everywhere.

cool video too, But why paint the capacitor caps, just for ascetics? 

 

Well originally there war red text/pain on the capacitors which I couldn't get removed with paint remover .. so painted them black which looked much better :)
