Ergo Proxy (Water Cooled Case Labs SMH10)
 
http://www.lgti.ca/hwc/ergo-proxy.jpg


When I built the White Asylum rig with my first Case Labs case I wrote in one of my last posts that I was gonna order another CL case
to replace the case of the "New Beginning" rig which is a Mountain Mods one. Well here we go! A brand new Black SMH10!! :biggrin:

So here’s the new Build Log which feature the replacement of the current case with the current components BUT with some replaced one and some additions too…

This new build is called "Ergo Proxy" which was a manga aired in 2006 for only a season but I loved it very much. It will not be a tribute to the show.
I only took the name because I find it cool. The only thing that could ressemble the show and the case is "darkness". But you’ll have to add some UV to describe the case :biggrin:.

I hope you’ll like it so let’s go! :thumb:

Thanks guys! :thumb:

The build is slow for now due to a lot of work. But my vacations starts tomorrow so I'll finally have free time!!! :biggrin:

Wowzers!!!!! No shortage of radiator square footage going on there..... :)

Looks like some great parts, and I suspect we'll get a feel for just how massive that case is by the time the build is done. It might seem like a small thing but I'm impressed with the fact that they shipped the case with the plexi / lexan protective paper still affixed to the window.

"No shortage of radiator square footage" I like that :biggrin:

About the protective paper, it's indeed not a small thing. I think it reflect the kind of detail that CL is heading for and I like those little details. And the window is secured with bolts so you just have to unscrew them, remove the protective paper and screw your window in place. Very neat!

I am itching to see this thing put together:clap:

P.S: I have been looking for an awesome case and I am very picky. I am waiting for the Phatenks Enthoo Primo but seeing the SMH10 makes me want to just go ahead and order it. I hate deciding so I will play eenie meenie ma ne mo!:haha:

Okay finally some updates on this build :biggrin:

In the last days I installed the radiators and fans. Everything is wired to the fan controller and the molex extension for the controller is done too. I tested the setup and everything is working fine! :thumb:

Here are a few pictures. Sorry for the lightning spots on the pictures :angry2: I hate myself when I see this...
