Here we have our entry to the CMWS 2024, the W-Frame.

 

The components that we are aiming to use for this project are as follows.

 

Main components:

CPU: AMD 7800X3D

Mobo: Asus ROG Strix X670E-I

GPU: Asus TUF RTX 4090 OC

Memory: G.Skill Trident NEO 64GB 6000MT/s CL30

SSD: Kingston Fury Renegade 2TB

PSU: Cooler Master V SFX PLATINUM 1100

 

Water cooling:

 

CPU: Alphacool Core 1 Aurora Black

GPU: Alphacool Core Geforce RTX 4090 Strix + TUF with backplate

Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 360mm

Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 200mm

Pump/Res-combo: Alphacool Core Flat Reservoir 240 (inkl. VPP Pump)

Res: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 25 LT

Fittings: Corsair hardline fittings and adapters

 

Concept:

 

The main idea here is to create something really unique and eye catching by placing most of the hardware outside of the case in a sideways w pattern and to not hide cables or tubes but instead highlight them in the main structure of the frame. The case will be constructed out of mostly aluminum and acrylic with the odd 3d-printed piece here and there to assist with cable management.

At this point we are still in the designing phase of the build and right now we are tackling the task of how to secure the extrusions together without disturbing the outside silhouette  of the main tower.

Option 1, 3d-printing brackets which would make it easy to position mounts for the acrylic aswell but they might look a bit intrusive.

Option 2, Metal brackets that makerbeam sources for attaching beams together. They might be smaller in profile and stronger but dont offer any mounting for the acrylic so those will have to be separate pieces.

 

Thoughts ? :)
