Singularity Computers Spectre 3.0 Ardus Case - Black
Integrated Liquid Cooling Features:
Reservoir, D5 Pump Top, D5 Pump Cover, Fill Port, Drain Port, roughly half of the cooling loop.
Integrated Cable Management Features:
Cable management channels with cable combs. 3x 8pin EPS on the left side of motherboard and up to two above the 24pin. 24pin Cable. SATA Data x2.
6x PCIE go through the PSU Top Shroud.
Reduced build time due to integration:
With the pump and reservoir combo and roughly half of the loop integrated there is less assembly to be done. Also, less fittings and tube are needed.
Cable management is also quicker, just clip your cables into the integrated cable combs and they are all perfectly aligned.
Integration Cost Component:
A large portion of the case cost is due to the integration. These are components you do not have to purchase for your build. The pump and reservoir combo, less fittings, less tube, no cable combs, or cable management components.
Theoretically the more integration the less compatibility. For Spectres integration the position of each integrated port and cable routing hole was carefully chosen based on statistics and our experience.
Integration & Optimization:
With the integration we did not just develop a case, we also had to develop all the integrated components. This meant that we could focus more on optimization than would normally be possible. The integrated loop routes in Spectre allow for more flow than 16mm tubes.
The pump top was designed for the D5 pump, maximizing flow to and from the distribution plate.
The reservoir was designed to remove air as quickly as possible making the loop easier to fill.
The fill port is at the highest point on the back for the case and the drain point at the lowest point.
The cable channels and combs are designed for 4mm sleeved cables. They can be clipped in very quickly and there is far less work to do for clean cable management.
High End Components:
Spectre 3.0 fits XL-ATX motherboards and has 8 expansion slots. It is designed for fit up to two RTX 3090s. It can fit the largest PSUs up to 220mm. For the cooling system it can fit 2x 360mm radiators 60mm thick with a single set of fans or 2x 360mm radiators 40mm thick with two sets of fans, and the powerful D5 pump.
The radiator mounts have a large range of adjustment to help with port alignment to the distribution plate.
Spectre 3.0 has 6x 2.5” Drive positions. Two are on the top of the PSU shroud and there are four inside of the PSU shroud. The two on top of the PSU shroud cannot be used with vertically mounted GPUs.
