CMWS19 day 8, loop and inside wall focus.

Spread the love

Spent last days with the 3D printer. Got a huge 60h print that has taking lot of time to CAD and tweak, but the first slice out of 5 is loaded as we speak. Very excited to see how it turns out. One of my main challenges with the inside wall is to design a nice loop run. I’m also a little worried with all the drilling, but only way to know, is to get it done.

First business of the day. Place the motherboard at the right place, mark the holes and pray (no room for errors).

9 holes later, I only had the last 2 guide bolts to add. 2,5mm drill holes, 3mm thread. Then I just put the motherboard bolts in the teeths of the Ryobi drill and screwed them in. Worked really good.

Phu such a relief. Hard to get 9 motherboard bolts in place with just a hand drill, but managed. Happy.

Decided to treat this rig with a new heart. 9900K was the obvious choice.

I mounted the CPU and added the block temporarly to have the option to turn the block depending on my different choices of tube run. Also took measurements for the dual reservoirs and drilled for the brackets. Passed the point of no return.

I find it hard to draw loops in Fusion 360. Makes it easier to test and think IRL, so I always use straws. Pulled out 2 colors to keep the two loops apart and started my design. Had a good idea what I wanted to achieve, but you never know untill it’s done for real if it will work.

GPU will be vertical and integrated in the shroud. Started with that. The CPU block and VRAM is also 4 placements I can’t control, so that was next.

This might work

With this preliminary backside. Still need to add the 2nd pump (finally got shipping notice about the missing water blocks) to be 100% sure of placement.

Converted my temporary straw design to the real thing. This needs to be right.

A tight fit with the motherboard, but it cleared. Last problem solved.

With a dual angled fitting in the radiator I can stack the pass throughs for that ontop of eachother. Next step is to start to do drill and bend some hard tubes. Super excited.
