In Greek the metal was known by the name chalkos (χαλκός). Copper was a very important resource for the Romans, Greeks and other ancient peoples. In Roman times, it became known as aes Cyprium (aes being the generic Latin term for copper alloys such as bronze and other metals, and Cyprium because so much of it was mined in Cyprus). From this, the phrase was simplified to cuprum, hence the English copper. Copper was associated with the goddess Aphrodite/Venus in mythology and alchemy, owing to its lustrous beauty, its ancient use in producing mirrors, and its association with Cyprus, which was sacred to the goddess. In astrology, alchemy the seven heavenly bodies known to the ancients were associated with seven metals also known in antiquity, and Venus was assigned to copper.

This project was an entry for the OCN Case Mod Comp '09 but I get disqualified today (June 30, 2009) for posting some ramdom pictures on my site and some videos on youtube but anyway I learn a lot! So I don't have to keep this project in the shadows anymore...!!!

Enjoy it!

The Plan (December 01, 2008)

Build the ultimate and most innovative Water Cooling system ever seen.
Over time I have seen all the components of a computer change periodically, since the introduction of the water cooling system has been poorly updated. So I decided to create my own Water Cooling System "CypriUm - The Ultimate Water Loop Case".

I'll use the same measures as a Full ATX Case and I'll follow the Water Cooling traditional parameters, using 1/2" copper pipes, radiator, reservoir, water blocks (CPU and GPU) and hoses, the difference will be the integration of these components with the design of the case.

Things that I want to accomplish:
- Custom Made Reservoir (Not like the Original Plan but better)
- Custom Water Loop (Done)
- Less Tubing More AirFlow (Done)
- Less Cable (Done)
- Unique Shape (Done)

Sub-Mods
#1 PSU - Mod (Done)
#2 Graphic Card Mod (Done)
#3 SATA Sleeving (Done)
#4 120mm Case Fan Mod (Done)
#5 Custom Power Button (Done)

Cu = Copper = CypriUm

The Materials

- 1/2" Copper Pipe (20+ feet)
- 1/2" Copper Ts (34)
- 1/2" 45 Copper Elbow (20)
- 1/2" 90 Copper Elbow (25)
- 1/2" Acrylyc Tube (3')
- 1/2" Fittings (6)
- Double 120mm Radiator (1)
- Pump (1)
- CPU and GPU Water Block
- 6' of Hose
- Acrylic Sheet 30"x28 (2)
- Pipe Cutter
- Bernzomatic Propane
- Bernzomatic Welding Rods
- Clear Epoxy
- Fiberglass Resin and Hardener
- 140mm Case Fan (1)
- 120mm Case Fan (3)
- Bright Orange LEDs (16)
- Hex Mesh (2)

The Beginning (Feb 14, 2009)

After cutting all the pipes to the required measures, I decided to do an assembly test to see how the final product would look like.

Warp!!! (May 02, 2009)

After two long months stuck in the laboratory developing this project, my site, my shop, my forum, the case modding magazine and other projects such as Orion Pax and C5C, I decided to come back and finish this project.

First: Build the Water Loop!













Second: Build the Rad into the Loop!





"This design includes a gravitational point in the center so it does not lean forward"








We all know that copper has an appearance of aging that is why I decided to sand it a little bit to get a shiny surface.










First Look of the Ultimate Water Loop Case!
