    Default PC-Beto

    whats up TBCS! IM BACK

    and its time again!

    PC-Beto


    A big thanks goes out to the sponsors that have helped me out with hardware for this mod!












    lets jump right into it. as usual i am modding an old used case!

    the inspiration?



    the case, and plans.
    im going to watercool the system with a 3*140 mm radiator in front, and two pumps. as seen on the pics, the case is devided in 2 sections. the frame is going to be powdercoated in matte black.



    this is some of the evelopment of the cad drawings i made. the big round one on the left is going to be a window.





    and the finished drawings. the top drawings is going to be cut in foil, and the bottom one in green acrylic. since ac-ryan didnt reply on my mails, I found the same acrylic that they uses (for 1/4 the price) and will be using that.



    finished middle plate



    the middle plate is going to be bend around the frame, to give a smoother look



    the little room in the top will be sealed off, and most likely used for 2 harddrives.



    close up of the rad hole in the front



    on this pic, the foil looks quite thick, but it wont be



    the motherboard tray (yes, that old bucket have a removeable mobo tray!) is going to be made of 2 pieces of acrylic. black and green, and will look like this



    for pumps holders, i designed a bracket, that will fit on 140 mm fans to hold the ddc pumps. with rubber grommets, theese should reduce vibrations too, and the cold air from the fans will cool them down a bit.



    close up of the bracket.

    hardware is yet to be decided. but for watercooling i will go for theese 2 for certain

    2 ddc pumps
    HWLabs black ice gtx 420 radiator

    soo.. hoped you enjoyd this little start of my new project though it almost only consists of renders. more WILL come. (already got a lil´ testplate cut out to play with )

    Wow. Very impressive. The only potential problem I see here is airflow noise as it passes through the narrow cuts in front of the fans. I'll be waiting for more.

    Why is this mod called Beto? (That's a common nickname in Argentina)

    dont really think to much about it since a 3*140 mm radiator is way overkill as it is, so a tiny bit of flow would actually cool more than i need

    LOL, Then FYI, "Beto" is the nickname for the people that are called "Albert" in Argentina (In Spanish, Albert is Alberto, alBErTO, BETO) XDD

    What marerials are you planning to use for the external cover?

    plastic foil i was going to use 2 layers of acrylic to begin with, but the bending became to complicated, and would have looked bad. so i went with a single layer of green acrylic, and black foil.

    and thx for the info but my case is no albert

    Pope, This is going to be monumental (when) you pull it off.

    Yes I said when, not "IF".
