“Time Folder”- the Internet beginnings

  • Jo 

The first build of mine, that ever has been showed on the Internet, was if one wants to say so, more than ambitious. I tried out at least anything in this case, what appeared useful to me, these days. Even with the Phanteks Enthoo Primo case offering mounting options and space by the bucketload, I already was believing, that radiators best suffer from direct room-air, without blowing the warmed into the case. Even more important I told to be making the controlling units more accessible and visible at all.

The Aluminium- sled rigs were the beginning of up-to come laters mounting ideas and proved themselves being practical. The external access to the reservoirs, at last, is awesome, not only, when it comes to filling or draining, but for the sheer looks at all. The name “Time Folder” resulted from a comment on the Aquatuning Facebook-post- This comment was the beginning of one of the most important Facebook- friendships I have today, like some others, that started with this post.

Still today, it is stunning to me, that this post was an offer from the Alphacool International contact, I only had because I sent my GPU in, for being scanned as measuring model for the liquid cooler, and who for me is one of the most appreciated contacts- Gomez: he transferred the pictures I only sent to him to look at, and this made my first Facebook post ever- “This is not a mod”, the german Aquatuning page titled, when sharing as well: Aquatuning Facebook- post

I´ll never forget, how it all began on December, the 8th, 2015: Thank you!
