There's usually at least one mod we see each month that makes our eyes grow a little wider and draws our faces closer to the screen. This month, CypriUm was one such PC. The reason? Well CypriUm is water-cooled but there's the twist.
Instead of using tubing like the rest of us, masbuskado used copper pipes that also made up the bare bones of the PC. In short he's using the case as a route for the coolant which is pretty impressive if we're honest, especially if he pulls it off without any leaks!
We don't often see cases with lots of flashy copper either apart from the likes of PrometheusCU
and of course CopperHead
. However CypriUm is a different beast entirely.
To start with then, all those lengths of copper pipe had to come from somewhere and this somewhere was a pipe cutting tool. Like some nightmarish mechano set, masbuskado lays out his task before us in this awesome shot of the case before it was built.
Building it thankfully didn't prove too tricky and the frame was soon standing tall waiting for some hardware. We can also see where all the various bits will go with the motherboard and PSU sitting in place.
From this angle we get an intriguing shot of the case showing the rear of the motherboard, some cooling installed as well as what appears to be a 5.25in bay mount. On the right is an awesome image of the case nearly in its completed form with most of the hardware installed and a large orange fan visible in the front of CypriUm.
No it's not one of those balls hamsters run around in. The most recent updates to the project show masbuskado has been building a custom reservoir for the cooling system. What's more there's a great video showing it in action in the log so make sure you head that way to see more about how CypriUm came in to being.
