View Full Version : Reactor Case

Hey modders!

This is my old case from around 2002. Its completely home-made, using a car-heating as radiator for the watercooling.
Special effects are the blacklights that are swimming in the water reservoirs.
98% Plexi (:

All controls are on the front panel: LAN-Status, CD/DVD knobs, Headphone Plug, ...

If you are interested, I can post some more details and pictures.

Hey, thanx for your comments!
As I wrote in my other thred:
I had been inactive in modding for 2 years now. But this forum is so inspiring and your comments encourage me to plan something new...
Perhaps you will find new plans in the other thread around new year, when i have some free time ((:

@ajmilton: Pics will follow. The MoBo is mounted vertically on the right side when you look on the front of the cube. Like in any other traditional case ((;
I have to admit, that I had so much space inside the box that I could pack the components in almost any way. That way seemed to be the most simple way.

@simon275: The car radi worked perfect. But as you perhaps can see, I have a 12cm fan for it. So its not passive, like I planed it first. But with a light airflow the system kept realy cool.

Biggeest problem I had with this case was the size and the resulting instability. I had to be realy careful, when I was travelling to LAN-Parties... Thats why I build CUBE 2 and disassembled my REACTOR. But I still keep the 4 water reservoirs for future projects. (I am proud on them :) They are made by cutting a plexi-cylinder twice and glueing the quarters to some plates.


@SnowFire: I planed to fix the blacklights but unfortunately the case was only a design study and survived only a year or two and I never realy finished it, because I knew it was too unstable.

Here are some more pics:
