The First Double Sided Mod Art QUADRAD Custom Case In The World / With Four Loop Four Rad Four Rez​

Hello there. Welcome to my new project.[​IMG]

We designed a big extreme case. A case with a square look.
4 radiators, 4 pumps, 4 reservoirs in the system. I wanted to build a system with 4 loops.[​IMG]

For this reason the name QUAD-RAD.

Case design is mine.

This case can be used in different systems.

The case would be made from scratch, not by modifying a standard case.
After our first work, we decided to make a case in this view.

Case Designed as square cross-section and 45 degree broken.
The case is a plain-flap shape with the front and rear top panels on the wings.
It is designed to bend 45 degrees towards the side covers.
With this, the depth of the cradle, normally 18 cm, was removed by 30 cm.

We started making a 1/1 carton to see what the case would be like.

There are air grids on the wings. And on the outside there are reservoirs.

In the form of 4 reservoirs in 4 corners.

We made vector drawings of Case.

We used 1.20 mm sheet metal.

After the interrupted spaces, the finished state of the empty stall was 12.5 kg.

Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Super Tower Case is 18.6 kg.....

During vector drawing, we decided to make the box from 4 equal parts, 2 smaller parts equal to the upper and lower, 2 larger parts equal to the front and the back.

The chassis 2 will consist of the top and bottom parts, 2 front and back parts, motherboard back plate.

The radiator grills, specially designed on the 4 sides of the cabin, are integrated with the frame.

In the bottom and top part, another four 20mm diameter holes from the grille will fill the system with liquid from the top.

A) There are 2 side parts, integrated fangriller and a panel which provides all cable entry and exit into the case in the lower parts coming to the corners.

B) At the top, a 30 mm diameter ON-OF button and a 22 mm restart button were made. And two USB 3.00 sockets were made.

C) There are also two 5.25 drawers for fan controllers close to the top.

D) The HDD control drawer was made near the bottom.

The front and back panels were equally spaced so that both sides of the frame could be used as the front panel.

The drawings were cut in CNC laser.

To check the size of the sockets, the cable box was panned out and the gauge was checked. Necessary corrections were made.

The base and ceiling were made of 2 pieces of hair marked in the picture to prevent the shaking of the table.

They were then welded to the base and ceiling.

Then, the back panel was screwed between them. This has increased the stability much more.:)

There is nothing wrong with using Google translation and there are several members here who use it. It does a good enough job as long as you spell everything correct in your language.

How thick is that steel? It looks very heavy.

Hello, thank you very much ..:)

The thickness of this steel is 1.2mm. I added the weight on the picture above. 12.5kg

I think it's normal weight. How about you?

Yes. Pretty close to normal. I think the major manufacturers use about 1mm thick.

I / O Panel is set to face down.

Special extension cables must be used on all sockets to not open the cover each time to mount the mainland cable.

There is no need to open the case cover with extension cables to be attached to the case corners.

Cables collected at the corners.

With the holes to be opened, the cables will be hidden behind the panel.

Truly impressive. I've been eyeing this machine for awhile, I think it woudl be a nice addition to any case modders tool box.

Your case looks awesome, can't wait to see the finished product, I already know it will be awesome, now it's just waiting to see it finished.
