    Default Project: Less Crappy Rad Casing.

    Well, I have a new Cubitek case, so I decided it was a good time to discard my old rad casing too. But I didn't feel like spending any money on it.

    The following was built from some scrap 2" benkeplate I've had laying around in the garage for two years. Completely routed by hand. Not a great outcome, but beats my old casing, so whatever.

    How big are those fans and can the rad take up 6 x 120mm fans?

    The rad is a Watercool Mo-Ra 2 Pro. It takes 9x 120mm fans. I am using just 4x 140mm fans though. Why?
    - Because I have a dozen 140mm fans laying around.
    - Because the heat load doesn't justify the noise of 9 fans.

    The groove at the bottom of picture 2 is for a cold cathode.
    The marred midsection of picture 4 is the result of my impatience. Never force your router. The bit-depth slipped.

    This thing is sanded and ready for staining. Black, as usual. If I'm not feeling lazy I'll start that in the morning.

    Finally got around to staining the thing. However, I wasn't happy with the look. So I lightly sanded everything again and just spray painted right over the stain. The result was this 'decent' satin black, which still reveals the woodgrain nicely.




    Originally this thing was to sit to the left of my case. Then I changed my mind. This meant having to reroute all tubing left. Accomplished this with 6 BP Extenders, 2 dual-rotary 90s, and four normal 90s. Tubing by itself can't make such a severe radius.


    Ah well. Works.
