Description

This is a rig that I was asked to build for Corsair which they could take to events to show off the 1000D. It's quite unlike the other builds that I've done in that it's both colossal and featured a stupid amount of hardware, I tend to prefer working with smaller form factors.

Whilst technically it's a 1000D, let's be real here it's basically built up from scratch to house all the hardware in a unique fashion. I designed the entire interior in Fusion 360, then CNC milled all the panels and distro plates myself. In total, this rig features 6 distro plates in various places, see if you can spot them all haha!

Pretty much every part of this build was a massive challenge, it turns out that cramming that much hardware even into a case as large as the 1000D doesn't give you much room to play with if you want to keep things interesting. The build is cooled by 3 separate loops, one for the TR4 CPU, one for the front 3 GPUs and one for the ITX system that sits in the back. In total there are 5 480mm radiators, serviced by 20 LL120 fans.

The reservoirs are built into 2 distro plates that replace the tops and bottoms, these then lead down to a front facing distro that has the 3 pumps mounted directly into it. The rear radiator mount is in fact a distro plate too, designed to route the tubing across the back without using lots of tubing runs. The GPU terminal was designed and cut specifically for this project so is completely unique, it runs down into another distro plate that uses mirrored acrylic to keep the PSU compartment out of view.

All the wiring is custom made and sleeved by me. Interestingly enough, because the cables pass through so many distro plates, I decided to make multiple sets of extensions so that the cables can be disconnected at different points, this allows the distro plates to be removed without having to take all the cables apart first.

Wow! This is sooo much to take in, from the insane manufactured parts to the clean cable management. If this is your day job then I envy you! :D

...oh and I predict another feature from you. ;)

This might just be the cleanest build I've ever seen.

Would be cleaner without all the RGB fans too, I didn’t take pictures with them on as genuinely it just looks worse

Holy balls sir. This is one helluva a build.

Now, correct me if I am wrong, but is that a completely separate mITX system on the back of your full ATX Threadripper setup?

I have only one question!

Why?

Honestly the only reason is that the 1000D stock fits an ITX extra system, so it seemed a necessity to keep that functionality in this modded one. No real reason other than that though rofl

It looks like your rear most ram stick, on the front build, isn't seated fully? Or I could be mistaken, that is the most likely thing. Build looks amazing!!

Gah everybody always manages to notice it haha. It's actually just the cover for the memory, the original Vengeance RGB sticks have a sliding cover that you can easily nudge by accident. I must have bumped it when plugging in the 8-pins, only noticed once the build had been packed up and sent, I did correct it later on though don't worry haha

+1 for those cable bends alone!!!

I'm still struggling with making perfect cables that only bend one way.

It’s a complete ball ache doing the cables like that, especially if you put them through multiple plates and features. Best of luck with yours!

The fact that this hasn't been featured yet is criminal.

Exceptional work

This beast is gorgeous. An incredible amount of work has gone into this. I have to know though... what kind of temps are you seeing on the 2950X? I've been through two of these damn Enermax units and I'm done. Been looking at the XT45 and the Heatkiller block. Just wondering what kind of load temps I can expect to see.

WOW! Very impressive. When I grow up, I want to build a system that looks as good as this one. Just one problem, I'm already 63.
