Project AORUS

Project AORUS was initially thought as a simple show build with some watercooling and custom cables, but as it so often happens I got carried away and decided to custom make my own watercooling parts for the build.

You can find a video of me filling the system with coolant here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozOm9NuSEQ0

The build consists of two custom designed manifold plates that are drawn in Solidworks, and then milled from cast acrylic on a CNC machine.


Plate one that sits on the motherboard connects all the major components such as GPU, CPU, motherboard and RAM into one big distributing plate. The second plate houses the reservoir as well as two D5 pumps and routes the fluid into the radiators in top and bottom as well.

The only lighting in this build is the LED's on the motherboard, but those have been turned off as I wanted the colors of the cables and the water cooling system to be the highlights.

I hope you enjoy it!
