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)
- Pennies (2)

I think the black hose goes well with the copper, has a kind of steampunk style to it.

that case is looking better and better. I would have expected the temps to be abit cooler for the CPU though. Is there a radiator/fan set in the loop?

Me too... but the clear hose is just for those who don't believe in this project. I'll keep the original color scheme Copper, Black and Orange.

CypriUm 2.5 - Oct 20, 2009

Pay close attention to this update because this is the main key for the upgrade.

Ver 1.0 & 2.0








Ver 2.5








Here you can see one of the many "blockers" that I put into the copper pipe to redirect the path of the water, I just remove this blocker because I add 2 new one for the new water path.



















I hope that you understand what happen in this update!!!
