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.
