Default Project Oceanus

Hello to all Hardwarecanuncks users,today im here to present to you my most recent watercooling project. First the choice of the case was a personal choice,due to the case having lots of modding potencial and pf course of the dimension of it also helped ,it also alowed the instalation of a different radiator setup, that´s rigth im going to use four radiators in this project,im glad the case has wheels or it wouldnt move.

The case choosen for the project is a Phobya WaCoolT UltraBig case,the case is basicly a beast,and it´s very easy to work with due to the screws system.




The name of the project is due to the massive amount of water it will have in the watercooling system.





Oceanus (/oʊˈsiːənəs/; Greek: Ὠκεανός Ōkeanós,[2] pronounced [ɔːkeanós]) was a pseudo-geographical feature in classical antiquity, believed by the ancient Greeks and Romans to be the divine personification of the World Ocean, an enormous river encircling the world.

Strictly speaking, Oceanus was the ocean-stream at the Equator in which floated the habitable hemisphere (οἰκουμένη, oikoumene).[3] In Greek mythology, this world-ocean was personified as a Titan, a son of Uranus and Gaea. In Hellenistic and Roman mosaics, this Titan was often depicted as having the upper body of a muscular man with a long beard and horns (often represented as the claws of a crab) and the lower body of a serpent (cf. Typhon). On a fragmentary archaic vessel of circa 580 BC (British Museum 1971.11-1.1), among the gods arriving at the wedding of Peleus and the sea-nymph Thetis, is a fish-tailed Oceanus, with a fish in one hand and a serpent in the other, gifts of bounty and prophecy. In Roman mosaics, such as that from Bardo he might carry a steering-oar and cradle a ship.

Some scholars believe that Oceanus originally represented all bodies of salt water, including the Mediterranean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, the two largest bodies known to the ancient Greeks. However, as geography became more accurate, Oceanus came to represent the stranger, more unknown waters of the Atlantic Ocean (also called the "Ocean Sea"), while the newcomer of a later generation, Poseidon, ruled over the Mediterranean.

Hey there,

Like the build so far . . .colour of sleeving? Well, given the theme, I would stick with blue, white and grey (ocean like colours). However, I do note your mobo tray is red so you could incorporate some red sleeving but I think it would be too much red IMHO.

Cheers

Fen

Update:




The Phobya case showing off the finished painting, exterior and interior was chosen the white color,and to highlight some parts of its interior was used the blue color, all four radiators were mounted withtheir fans, in this project i am using seventeen fans in order to achieve maximum performance of the water cooling system.




Sleeving color sample.










In this three photos you can see the quality of the painting and the future cable management.









Begining of the sleeving in a 21 pin white extension.
