    Default Project HELIOS - Invocation Begins 10.01.10

    HELIOS, the Titan god of the sun. Tireless is he who is like the deathless gods.
    As he rides his chariot, he shines upon men, and piercingly he gazes with his eyes from his golden helmet.
    Bright rays beam dazzlingly from him, and his bright locks streaming from the temples of his head gracefully enclose his far-seen face.
    A rich, fine-spun garment glows upon his body and flutters in the wind: and stallions carry him.
    Then, when he has stayed his golden-yoked chariot and horses, he rests there upon the highest point of heaven, until he marvellously drives them down again through heaven down to the lasting earth.


    Design Features:
    - Crafted from the worlds highest grades of composite materials and carbon fiber.
    - Showcasing some of the finest watercooling components and computer hardware.
    - Designed to hide every fastener, nut and bolt.
    - A lack of case windows leave the motherboard bare and exposed.
    - High-tech and specially engineered ceramic foam filters and stainless steel mesh keep out dust.
    - Made from virtually indestructible panels over 8MM thick.
    - Taking advantage of air pressure zones to keep hardware dust-free.
    - Fully removable motherboard tray without disconnect or power-down.
    - Highly modular design makes part-swapping as simple as possible.
    - Sleek minimalist design is a call back to swiss modernism and bauhaus principals.
    - Design and fabrication methods tailored to an extreme rapid fabrication cycle.
    - HELIOS is to be a scratch build mod, truly, like no other.

    INITIAL CONCEPT ILLUSTRATION:
    Using Adobe's Illustrator I created a couple rough perspective drawings, so that I could get a better idea of the concept in my head:
    -At this point the plan was to construct the case in Aluminum.



    REVISION 1.0:



    REVISION 2.0:
    After talking with the community and doing some more planning myself, I made some changes to the plan.
    -Altered some of the chassis dimensions.
    -Trashed the idea of stacked radiators.
    -Relocated the pumps and reservoirs.
    -Added a downward facing PSU fan, which would later be scrapped.
    -Finalized the tubing layouts.
    -Changed from 360MM radiators to 420mm
    -Changed the fabrication material to Grade 38 Titanium



    REVISION 3.0:
    I again posted my designs for the community to critique and made some very minor alterations yet again.




    REVISION 4.0:
    At this point I was getting some really good feedback online and started putting it into practice.
    -I redrew the entire design with new dimensions.
    -Plotted the wiring paths.
    -Refined the tubing layouts.
    -Finalized the pump and reservoir positions




    PAPER PROTOTYPE:
    It was now that I decided to take my design and bring it into the physical plane. The medium I decided upon was cardboard and tape - the board I used is the same stuff one would use to matte pictures when framing.









    REVISION 5.0, current and FINAL revision:
    Happy with the prototype and the general concept, I decided it was time to finalize the plan and fix the little issues. This revision I've kept to myself until this now. I've made many very small changes to the plan.
    -I again completely redrew the design, this time with 8MM thick paneling.
    -I added small routered grooves where the panels fit together to better hide the seams.
    -Altered the relationships of components and their positions.
    -Finalized the design for the PSU cavity.
    -Beveled all the edges of the cuts - to compensate for the diameter of the 1/8" cutting tool on the CNC router.
    -I also swapped out the Titanium for a Carbon Fiber construction instead (I'm going to save the Titanium I acquired for another project down the road).

    I've been working with an engineer, and friend of mine named John Dalton, who has graciously offered up some time to throw together a 3D mock-up.

    He sent me off the first revision of his model today.

    There are couple of minor errors, due to my vague explanations:
    -In this model the motherboard backplate is flipped 180deg
    -The SSD mounts are affixed to the side panels instead of the rads
    -the motherboard tray is just floating in space.

    They are such minor issues that I have no problem at all sharing some previews with you.
    And John already agreed to rectify the issues for me on Monday.

    You can CLICK HERE for a live model preview which you can rotate around and navigate in 3D space.
    Unfortunately this HTML export from SolidWorks is only supported by IE, and on PC.

    Here's an ISO view with perspective.


    Side view with perspective:


    View of the back and side of the chassis.


    A couple of detail shots of the bottom.


    Note here how I managed to save some space by routering out some spots in the chassis and side-panel. These will allow for a couple extra millimeters for the pumps and PSU fan.

    That's all I have to share for today.
    I'll have the revised model as well as some renderings to show you all next week.
    As well, next week, I'll share some pictures of the manufacturing process behind the composite panels. Perhaps even some shots of them being CNC cut to spec.

    You can check out some of my planning threads, they are located across a dozen or so of the top modding communities.

    Here are the threads on Bit-Tech, but if you google the titles, shown in quotes below, you should find the others as well.
    "Dust filter and 'Blackout' - I seek material advice"
    "Project: Helios | concept and design "

    The details are also spelled out in the first post of this thread, as well the revisions listed outline some of the other features.

    Pretty interesting. By the design so far it will have good cable management, nice airflow, and ease of use concecpt. Are you going to be designing tooless bays as well or just rigging preexisting designs to your case. I'm interested to see more.

    Also what is the dimension of the outside of the case going to be?

    DotExe I guess I missed when you joined, Welcome to Pure OC!

    Langer, when does this project start ? you might want to think about going with three GTX580 now but if you do stay with the 480s, the two MSI Twin Frozr 480s I have run cool even under load.
