Singularity Computers’ Spectre Case Has A Water Cooling Distribution Plate

Singularity Computers, best known for its extremely high-end artisan computer builds, recently launched a new subsidiary company called Singularity Cases, which aims to bring some of Singularity’s advanced build techniques and components to a wider audience. This week, Singularity Cases launched its first case, Spectre, and it’s truly something to behold.

Singularity Computers is accustomed to creating custom components for its clients, such as custom milled aluminum mounting brackets, grills, and aesthetic features. The company can also build custom acrylic distribution blocks that feature channels for the water cooling fluid. Distribution blocks are a popular feature for extremely high-end water cooling builds, but that’s not the sort of thing you can buy off the shelf. You must create your own distribution block if you want one. Until now.

The primary feature of the Spectre case is a large distribution block that doubles as the motherboard tray. The company milled the distribution block from clear acrylic, which enables you to see the fluid running through it. The block includes channels that flow along the side and above the motherboard tray. Singularity also created an in-panel reservoir, so you don’t need to find space to mount a cylindrical reservoir. The block also features integrated drain and fill ports.

The distribution block includes a space to integrate the pump, which eliminates the need to run tubes to the pump. Singularity includes a pump top and a pump cover with the case; you just need a motor. The case also includes mounting points for a second pump in case you want to run dual independent loops.

The Singularity Cases Spectre also offers support for two large radiators to keep your components cool. You can mount a 360mm radiator on the top, and another on the inside of the front panel. Both can be up to 60mm thick.

Singularity Cases’ Spectre also offers unique cable management features that will help you build a tidy system. Most of the case is transparent, so hiding unsightly cables is paramount. Singularity Cases designed hidden channels to hide the cables for fans and lighting systems. It also built cable combs into the rear of the distribution block to make it easy to make your power supply cables presentable like a pro.

Singularity Cases said that it designed the Spectre case to make it easy for people to modify. The frame of the case is made of billet aluminum, which you can customize with a CNC machine or a Dremel. Aluminum parts are also easy to paint, so you can make it unique in that way, too. The case also comes to you in pieces in a flat pack, so you don’t even have to drill rivets to repaint the case.

The Singularity Cases Spectre case (that's a mouthful) is available for order, and it will cost you a pretty penny: Singularity is asking $950. The company said that the first 100 cases would ship within 4-6 weeks, with the next batch becoming available in 8-10 weeks.

    1000$? Sure, it is neat, but not that neat. However, the backplate cabling management is something other manufacturer should look into. It makes just so much sense.

    Wow very nice case at a very high price as well. I really like the idea of the water cooling being tied into the case this is a nice idea and I hope it works well. I think this is the same case that Jayz2Cents is using to build a custom system for that singer guy can't think of his name right now. It will be intersting to see a case like this in action and how well it all fits together.

    Is this case vulnerable to Spectre?

    this thing is ugly AH

    As mentioned previously, a truly unfortunate name for the case.

    Redgarl, Unfortunately the issue is that there is no standard for PSU cable management pinouts or even out plug types. When PSU manufacturers get together & set a standard for all PSU's, all cabling will have to be custom made for each PSU in a system like this. Some manufacturers don't even stick to the same pinout for different models they make. This can be very frustrating when you have unlabeled black cable sets & different model PSU's for several PC's. It would not currently be possible for case manufacturers to supply a case with cable management like in Singularity's Systems, maybe a kit for specific cases & PSU's by 3rd party manufacturers. In a perfect world lol.

    I can see potentially huge issue. Imagine any part of the M/B sealed channel with the O-Ring gets broken or losses its tight seal, or perhaps you get any sort of problem in between e.g. algae or even get water stain and you need to clean it.
    It's nice concept and I'm sure it looks nice but we dealing with liquid that eventually will cause some issues and you need to take all that apart.

    When comes to the price? I'm sure to produce this its not cheep, but $1000 that is way overpriced, no way I would pay that and I have 3 Caselabs STH10 which are very expensive but you get I think much more than what you get with this case.

    I'm sure Daniel will sell some of them, but its not going to be big hit.

    Jays2cents is using this case for his Post Malone build... Should be cool...
