Hello to all MaximumPc 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.

Image


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


Image


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.


Hardware: Will be revelaed later.

Watercooling: The list is a little big but i will post it here later as well.

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.

I like the blue you chose. Is that Phobya case only in Europe? I don't see many people use Phobya cases, but I have heard of their case-fans

Hello Phillyj,no this case is avaliable worldwide,you can buy it at : http://www.aquatuning.de/cases-hardware ... ck-edition

It´s quite cheap but has a lot of possibility for modding and watercooling! 8)

They also got E-loop fans wich are excelent,i was going to use them in this projet,but then i changed my mind..

Stay tuned! soon news..
