GELID Solutions Case Fan Multipack
 
GELID Solutions Wing 12 UV Blue Fan MultipackGELID Solutions have introduced a multipack of their award winning Wing 12 UV case fans, aimed at the gamers, modders and overclockers who want the best in class for noise, performance and price.
 
The patented Nanoflux bearing incorporates a clever magnetic design, very high precision manufacturing and runs friction-free and operates noiseless. Electromagnetic fields are exploited to keep solid parts from touching. The load is carried by a magnetic field. The Nanotechnology composite ensures lowest abrasion and extreme durability (MTBF 100,000 hours). Compared to other magnetic bearings this technology allows the impeller to be detached and thus the fan blades can be cleaned easily.
 
All Wing 12 fans carry a 5 year warranty. Included int he bundle at 16 mounting screws and two 4pin molex cables. The four-piece multipacks will be available for around £40 when they reach the UK. This is a very nice idea from GELID, I'm surprised we haven't seen bundles like this before as users often buy more than one fan for their computers.

Watery rev. 2

It’s been a good old while since watery has had an update, let alone any progress, and to be honest, I got utterly stuck on how to mount the reservoir to the actual case body, while still being able to remove the case panels to get to the hardware, so it was time to start over anew.

Revision two is going to be the same basic idea, but on a larger scale so I can get in a full ATX motherboard, and dual water loops as I want to go full out this time. There will still be truck loads of milled and laser cut acrylic, but quite a lot more chrome this time, with the back panel, motherboard tray, radiator ‘pods’ and floor all being made from aluminium. This will reduce costs, and hopefully my blood pressure as putting a decent thread in acrylic was doing my head in.

So, going in will be:
ATX Mobo and the usual hardware
GPU or so.
2x HDD/SDD's
External DVD Drive

Dual water loops
2x120.2 Radiators
Dual DDC's
Dual custom res's
Drain ports

Integrated lighting system (more in this in due course)

This time, I also want to set this project out in stages, so I don’t get confuddled, so here is the basic plan...:

Stage 1 – Manufacture of radiator mounts,
Stage 2 – Manufacture of base, motherboard tray and back panel, feet and support columns.
Stage 3 – Chrome every piece of metal I can find.
Stage 4 – Build the lighting system.
Stage 5 – Hardware modification & cable mods.
Stage 6 – Reveal the reservoir.
Stage 7 – Profit....

Before I give you the first glimpses, I have to give a shout out to a few people on Bit-tech and on Xtreme Systems who have given me a hand with designs and suggest some neat ideas:

I am going to be using quite alot of the stuff from the last version of Watery, so thanks to..:

UPDATE 1
A quick start, just to I can get my hand back in...

The radiators are going to be mounted length ways on either side of the base of the case sucking air in, and blowing out towards the PSU. The plan is to have all of the cables from the fans etc. hidden within the radiator mounts so just the water tubes stick out, using a set of Bitspower universal fillports. So, let’s start on the ends :)

BTW, no much in this first update, just to show I'm actually doing stuff for once :p

To show its not just all hot air...

Second side finished today. This means I can start working on the base panel and on the mid tray over the next few days.
(Althought its not obvious, both bolts are fully countersunk, they just aren't fully tightened.)

The plates that mount onto these two bits I've just made are going to be laser cut aluminium as they need to be reeeeealy accurate. And although none of this will probably make sense now, once I've finished the radiator mounts, all should become clear...

:D

MORE TOMORROW!

Did you buy those rads in chrome or you had them custom done like that? Look pretty cool in a wierd sort of a way lol :)

Looking forward to see how this build goes!

Just read through the original build log too, looked great! You going to be using the res you made up for that or creating a brand new one?
