The Power Cell

Cylinder PC with water cooling loop that runs inside and outside
of the case. This is my first ever Scratch build, and only my second PC Mod.

Being this was my second PC Mod I wanted it to be different from any
other PC out there, And the only way I could do that was to build one
from the ground up. I wanted it to run very cool and still stand out
from the normal square looking PC. So I sat down and started to design
one. And from the start I know it had to be a round case and needed to
be themed based, And Star Wars was first on my list of themes.

ASUS helped out with the MoBo & GPU. And I funded the rest of the build.
The build took a bit longer that I had expected but I was my first time
scratch building a case so I did not have a real good grasp on how much
work there would be in building it.

The Power Cell has 3 x 120 slim EK rads in the top part of the case,
Each rad has 2 fans fitted to it in a push pull taking air from the
inside of the case blowing it out the top. The cool air is pulled in
from the bottom vents at the base of the case, That air enters the
case from under the back of MoBo cooling it as well.

The water cooling loop runs in and out of the case 3 times each time
parsing through one of the rads then runs back to one of the outer
case res’es 3 times then to the res in the center then to the CPU then
back to the pump and then repeats the proses.

In the bottom of the case is the is a 1000watt Corsair PSU. that takes
air in from underneath the case with it’s own removable filter and blows
the hot air out the back so no heat enters the case.

The GPU is remote fitted to one of the pillars by 2x 300mm PW-PCI-E
Lian le rise cards convert cables. That pulls air in from the outside
that is filtered with a removable filter, and air is also taken from
the inside of the case and blows it down into a chamber at the bottom
and out to the back of the case, so the hot air is not entering the the case.

The SSD is fitted at the front of the case.
The top disk has a RGB remote LED lights.
The center Res has a custom made rotating powered blue strobe light
fitted to the bottom that turns with a key at the front of the case.
On the right pillar on the inside is a water flow meter.
on the left outer side is a water temp meter.
The case is made from plastic.
