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...!!!
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)
Well, I was very pleased with the final outcomes but I decided to do some change to CypriUm... so you can draw a line here because this is CypriUm 2.5...
CypriUm 1.0 from December 2008 - June 2009
CypriUm 2.0 from July 2009 - September 2009
____________________________________________________________________ The Line
CypriUm 2.5 from October 2009 - December 2009
The Upgrade will be lite and most of the picture will be posted on New Mod City!!!
So here is CypriUm as right now!!!
